    They could be unvaling a new logo Saturday at the season ticket holder event I guess.

    I went to PFT's site and clicked the link from there. The page just simply isn't loading or something.

    That's what I tried. It still doesn't work.

    I wonder if they had to pull it quickly and the best way was to kill the page after about the first three html tags. That's all I see in the source.

    It's back up, with the story. Changing name to "Dolphin Stadium" with a new logo. It's definitely simpler and more modern. Not sure I like it better. But I would guess we'll be seeing a lot of it soon.

    I most definitely do not like the inclusion of navy in the color scheme. Navy is not a traditional color of the Dolphins, and it should have been kicked to the curb when Wanny was kicked to the curb.

    I like it as branding for the stadium only. The stadium should have its own logo. If I had to stare at that on a helmet, I'd vomit.

    Here is the PFT blurb.

    COREBOARD COMPANY LETS CAT OUT OF BAG FOR FINS
    Earlier on Monday night, we reported that the Dolphins will unveil at a Saturday press conference "the creation of a national branding strategy for the stadium and unveil the new stadium logo." We thought it meant that the Fins would be selling the naming rights to Dolpins Stadium.

    To the contrary, the Fins are merely changing the name of Dolphins Stadium to . . . Dolphin Stadium.

    A reader advises us that the official web site of Daktronics, a South Dakota scoreboard and video display company, describes as one of its recent projects the installation of two large video displays at the venue, with a scheduled completion date of July 2006. In so doing, Daktronics discloses the new name of the stadium, including its new logo.
    [​IMG]
    The broader question, as we see it, is whether the new Dolphin from the stadium logo eventually will replace the team's traditional cartoon-style, helmet-wearing marine mammal on the side of the player helmets.
    Given that the team plans to unveil the new name at logo at a presser on Saturday, we have a feeling that owner Wayne Huizenga didn't anticipate that Daktronics would let the cat out of the bag. And we figure that, before too long, the "Recent Projects" link on the left side of the Daktronics site will be tweaked.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT ! !! ! I think that is a solid, great looking "STADIUM" logo. It is supposed to be business, i think it is highly marketable and very Crisp. This is something that i would wear on a golf shirt with no problems. The color scheme couldnt be any better. Personally i dont see whats not to like about it.

    Now that being said, im 1 Million % against that being on our helmets or jerseys. I still want a change back to the old style.

    so then what does this mean. I am fine with that as the stadium logo and it does sound better without the "s" and the end of dolphins. but to change our helmet logo to that is insane. no way

    relax everyone.....its a business logo not a change of freaking uniform. Do you really think that one of the top teams in merchandise sales is just gonna change their logo! It is perfect for the stadium, its better than DHL. I think its great. THE FINS ARE NOT CHANGING THEIR LOGO, get a grip please.

    it reminds me alot of the what the islanders tried to do awhile back when they changed the team colors to more dolphin like colors but they had to change that for legal reasons they were sued by the fishstick man

    Actually, we've got no idea whether or not Miami is changing their logo or uniforms.

    Both the Browns and Vikings have recently announced redesigning their uniforms, and it's not logically too late for Miami to do so.

    And I dont understand why being one of the top teams in sales is going to make them NOT want to change the logo/uniform. If anything, that would make it even more compelling.

    With Huizenga going gung-ho to rebrand the team image, it's most certainly not unreasonable.

    It's called not killing the golden goose. That's why you haven't seen the Cowboys adding a sixth spoke to their star or the Raiders moving to a script "Raiders" across the helmet.

    Some things are classic. The Dolphins logo is a classic.

    Do you really think the Dolphins logo sells because its aesthetic appeal, or because of the team it's attached to?

    We've currently got a goofy cartoon Dolphin as our logo. The damn thing looks like it should be hawking some sort of seafood entree, not representing a football team. No one buys the merchandise because they like seeing a surly looking cartoon Dolphin.

    Here's the Avant Garde style helmet that's been floating around forever. Anyone else notice the similarities?

    You might want to change "No one" to "I" because I for one buy the logo, and do not see it as goofy. From the looks if this thread, plenty of people feel the same way.

    I like the current logo, but if the new "stadium" logo turned into the team logo I could grow to love it.

    Yup agreed. I wrote up this whole post about that comment but decided it wasn't worth bothering as there's no way the team is changing their symbol to that tripe. Dolphins gear sells well nationally due to it's popularity among woman as it's considered 'stylish' and it's a clean crisp look that stands out.
