    I just posted that same link...

    Feeling a little sick to my stomach...not a fan of it...I hope that's not the final.

    This story is just the exact same stuff that has been said in other threads. Nothing new here....

    It is just another story regurgitation and speculation. Yard barker is not exactly mainstream either. I don't like the new logo. I am for the 1970's logo

    This is one of the worst I've seen. Hopefully, if they change, this will not be it.

    Never knew yardbarker.com was considered mainstream media.

    that thing looks like one of the lamest, ugliest, feminine, pathetic looking logos ever.

    I won't buy anything MIami related if that thing is on it.

    Yardbarker? Maybe this turns out to be the logo, but this is just based on the same story/speculation we saw on Sunday.

    Personally, I like the way the Dolphin is with its tail going up, not so sure with how simplistic the rest of it is though.

    Not a fan, but it is better than any of the logos I've seen people here suggest.

    It isn't awful but how does the 70s logo tie into that at all?

    Bring back the logo from the 80's and they are all set. The one in the early 90s isnt bad either. That is all.

    I barely ever post but I gotta say...I like this logo a lot more than the "mean" one with the red/orange eye. We are the Dolphins, not the Sharks. No point in trying to play it up like some sort of badass predator. It just comes off as lame in my opinion.

    Deadspin.com also put up an article regarding this logo. Says that people have gotten it from multiple sources. Seems like this may be legit.

    They also point out that essentially every logo change in NFL history has leaked a few weeks before the unveiling.

    mike Dee told us, that there was plenty of time to gauge fan feedback on any new logo. that it could be changed, adjusted or even scraped. I'd say the leak is legit and is the start of the feedback process.

    Meh, not a big fan of that one. It almost makes the dolphins look too...listless would be a way to put it. And like others I hadn't heard of Yardbarker 'til now. If I didn't know better I would've thought it was a dog grooming newsletter or something.

    I think the only feedback they will take into account is the position and shape of the tail.

    Most people hate logo redesigns of established brands. Initial feedback is almost always negative, but in time people begin to embrace the logo. I believe that will happen for this design. My initial reaction was neither negative nor positive. However, it has grown on me. Then again, I despise the current logo for its cartoonish and silly style. I prefer logos that are simple and timeless and I believe that is what they are trying to achieve with this new logo.

    We won't truly be able to appreciate the new logo until we see it in action and in conjunction with the new uniforms and apparel.

    At first, i didn't know what to think. I liked it but i didn't love it. I guess my expectations didn't match up with what i saw. But after thinking about it, my expectations were unrealistic and probably would have never been met. I'm glad we got rid of that stupid helmet and the cartoon look it had. It's been a few days since the alleged leak and every time i look at it, i like it more and more. I also tried to clean it up to get a better look at it without all of the distractions. Though it may not look "mean", it does look classy with a very modern, business like feel to it.

    It's really growing on me. I am a fan. Combine this with a retro uniform design and I will be quite happy.

    Again, we don't know if this logo is legit or not. However, it really isn't that bad if it does end up being close to this. I think the curve of the Dolphin is very good and the more simplistic Dolphin appears to be homage to the 70s. I am a fan of the current logo so change is always going to be scary, but if this ends up being the new logo, I think it is one that can grow on us. Not sure how it is "feminine" or "looks like a Penis", but to each their own.

    If the Dolphins win become successful shortly after the logo change, people will learn to love it regardless. People hated the new Broncos and Patriots logos initially, but after a few Super Bowl wins, they learned to love it as they are now associated with success. I bet if they tried to redesign those same logos now there would be a lot of blowback from the fanbase.

    A lot of the feedback on this board is constructive and intelligent...the one comment I can't understand? Who of you out there have penises shaped like THAT?!

    Seriously, you should probably get that checked out.

    I bet a dolphin shaped penis would be quite popular with the ladies... Doing flipper tricks all up in it!

    Well then, here's my feedback: it absolutely sucks. It looks effeminate, generic, and lacks even an ounce of creativity. It does nothing to honor the past, like they've said the new logo would. It looks like it should be the logo for a ****ing hotel, not a football team. So Mike Dee, if you're reading this- back to the drawing board my friend.

    not a fan. those other logos have something about them that seems more professional. I've seen better amature efforts around here.

    Logos aren't cartoons or intricate works of art. They are symbols! As a symbol, this logo is quite well designed actually from a logo design standpoint.

    In all honesty, what is the difference in style of this dolphin logo and the Bills logo? Would you say the Bills logo is crap? They are both simple, outlines of the mascot animal with the team colors with a classic, simple timeless feel.

    Skape, if you want a simple and timeless logo (as I do), they should just go back to the old logo from the 80's and early 90's. It's one of the best logos ever in sports.
