    Does anyone know the status on the uniform/logo change? It was announced in August that Wayne has retained the services of the company that did the uniforms for the Chargers.

    Haven't heard anything. If something does in fact change, it will likely be announced in either late March or early April. Though we should hear real soon whether or not the change actually will occur this season.

    That would be my guess also.

    The Chargers released their new ones the first week of March last year. The Arizona Cardinals did theirs though in the last week of January in 05'.

    The guy who came up with the new logo/uniform for the Chargers last year was also working on a new design for the Dolphins.

    Is this legitimate ? Has the dolphins organization announced anything, or is it coming from the designer company ?

    If I had to guess, I would say we would keep the same logo and same colors. The uniforms would be more new-age(Vikings, cardinals, chargers, etc.) which is a change I would be excited about

    with this i not totally sure. i heard that Wayne was getting mail from fans and such stating they are looking for a change in the uniforms, and even the song played after touchdowns.

    all i know is Wayne is looking to possibly change the uniform a bit (possibly going back to the oirigonal colors instead of the darker aqua)... i not heard anything on changing the logo though... i am hoping it stays the same

    i am also hoping Nike has nothing to do with the uniform design

    I would prefer to go back to the early 80's
    I always liked the dark jerseys. I can see the way Mark Clayton used to look.
    There was something about those jerseys that I liked.

    That's one thing that does need to change. That "fight song" is ridiculous and outdated as it is. Play it after a win, but not after every score. It's just silly to play that song in a losing effort. I really wish they would just scrap that song altogether.

    IN the article that stated this fact it said they have to give the notice of a uni change a year before it happens in which they did and it should be ready for this year. It said taht our logo is getting a tune up so to say but our jerseys r goin to be diff. The helmet is goin to carry that Panthers line on teh top of it (as that is what they are shooting to do) and the jerseys are goin to have the broncos type of design with our colors obviously. I'm all for a change and we hate the ugliest jersey last year via fans.

    Here's an article talking about it from last year. I've seen it on a few sites, but it's been the same info everytime...

    It looks like the designer of this years Super Bowl logo has slipped up and leaked a bit of information pertaining to the redesign of the Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers logos. The report surfaced in a feature about Shandon Melvin, who grew up in West Virginia and designed this year’s Super Bowl logo. During the interview with Melvin, he slips when talking about the new logo to the reporter. As explained by the reporter…

    “Right now he’s working on a new logo for the Dolphins and the Chargers.†Then the reporter adds, “Now, the inside word is that [Melvin] is working on a design update of the iconic NFL logo itself.†Then they cut to an audio clip of Melvin, who confirms the league logo revision: “We’re looking to update our brand just a little bit and to, I would say, refine it.â€
    This is the first time the UniWatch Blog has heard about these redesigns of the Phins and Bolts logos. They feel Melvin will incorporate that long-overdue infinite regression into the Miami logo (a dolphin wearing a helmet with a dolphin wearing a helmet with a dolphin, etc.)

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think Reebok currently has the contract for uniforms.

    From what I understand of the process, the designer(s) work hand in hand with the uniform manufacturer and the NFL. Unfortunately, seeing as some brain-dead clown in the NFL offices must've thought the Bills and Bengals uniforms were actually stylish I'm not sure that's a good thing.

    Whats with all the "lets go back to the 70's look"? The 70' are well over. It is time to move on not always look back to the good old days.

    exactly dude adn to be hoenst they aren't all that nice. its the whole "OG" "old school" back in the days stuipd phase everyone is in now a days. Look at that dudes signature with Long in it with half the School jersey n half ot eh Dolphisn jersey. Look how nice and intimidating the the Virg. one is as oppose to the miami one. its a lame jersey with a lame green. kinda like that signature iwht Beck as well, its so simple n retarded no wonder it was voted ugliest jersey in the nfl this year by fans.

    :lol: , whatever they do or don't do they can't please everyone. I'd honestly be happy either way, if we go modern or simply go with the updated throwback look.

    That's very, very, cool. I love those and would love to have them as the real design.

    As for the 70's uni's, am I the only one who thinks they look...well, like they should have stayed in the 70's? I can understand nostalgia, but why the hell bring back some uniforms that like like my great-grandmother's wallpaper?

    I live near the dolphins practice facility in Davie. About a week after the dolphins season was over they removed the HUGE dolphins logos from the outside of the bubble.

    I'll be disappointed at a logo change but fully embrace a uniform change. I haven't bought a jersey since.

    i think we should seriously go to the teal jerseys. unlike our whities. i understand why you would want white, because it is cooler in the heat. but, the raiders wear black and the chargers wear dark blue. i hope they make the new threads look a bit cooler. or much, much cooler. then, the FORMER 1-15 team will still be looking righteous out on the field. and our righteous play from (hopefully) Marcus Trufant and Chad Johnson will back it up.

    These are excellent. Any way we can forward them to Parcells & co.?

    If (and it's a big if) we do have some type of uniform change, I would expect it to happen sometime before the NFL Draft. With the new regime and everything else, it really wouldn't surprise me at all. Heck, I'm even a little excited, if it turns out to be true.

    The "article" was never verified in any way shape or form.

    It's simply been complete rumor and nothing more.

    The only place it keeps coming back up is on here.

    Maybe Zach Thomas took that with him at the same time he removed his parking sign? Or maybe Cam took it as a momento?

    I've played the game myself and I can tell you that anyone that gets intimidated by a color has no business being on a professional football field.

    Also, our jerseys weren't voted ugliest, our alternate Orange jerseys were voted in the top 10. The Orange ones, not the aqua one your referencing.

    Yeah the Raiders have been quite intimidating with their black and silver colors with a Raider with a patch over one eye as their logo. They were so intimidating that most every team steamrolled them ...except for us :lol:

    Playing against teams that are TOP teams is what gets a team fired up. It doesn't matter if an opponent has a black or white uniform, if the team is your enemy then you get fired up and want to kick some rear!!!

    I am not a fan of the logo of that angrier Dolphin that has been proposed in this thread (the eyeball is odd) but those jerseys look good.

    I would really love a tune up to our logo and jerseys, but this rumor was such a long time ago and there has been little in the way of info since then. I'll keep crossing my fingers.
