    I'm fine with a logo change, but not with the crappy one that has been leaked.

    I want the more aggressive logo that was posted in PASQUALE's thread.

    Pretty much every mock or leaked logo has been absolutely horrible.

    Told you in another thread. The dolphins are NOT going to force feed us a logo the majority is lukewarm on.

    Please Mike Dee! CHoose the one that was just leaked. its so perfect. Modern yet classy and clean. It's exactly what the redesign needed and delivers across the board. At initial leak most hated it. Already we've seen an impressive change In feedback. Fans are starting to warm to it just a day later. All new logos are initially hated and greeted with negative feedback. but once you show the logo on a helmet and a brand new uniform design most will be super excited. YOu have put In a lot of work do not turn back now.

    my opinion is the logo was "Leaked" to get a reaction from some fans..

    the leaked logo is not my favorite. I hope they just update the old Dolphin,
    Back to the 70's colors and lose the helmet. take the smile off and make it look meaner.

    The plot thickens. While I like it, the reaction has been awful at best. Methinks they at least learned what people DON'T want in the new logo, so this leak will be productive.

    As long as its not that ridiculously cartoony arena football logo I'm happy.

    I think it's all bull**** and this is in fact the new logo. If not I really hope they just go back to the 72 logo. Or use the new logo and just use the throwback colors.

    How does changing the logo affect the product on the field? or better yet how does changing the log stop them from improving the product on the field? You seem to think that the team is taking away from the coaching and player development by working on a logo. You seem to imply that Ryan tannehill is being slaved out in china on his off time to work on a logo while the rest of the team is on the practice field. Do you guys even listen to yourselves when you find every single little detail of the team and find a way to turn it into a negative?

    I never once said that but feel free to take this to a level that is so silly. My point is much like the Bucs in the 90's we are trying to possibly cash in on merchandising by having a new logo. Its a way to try to create new revenue since the popularity of the franchise has waned due to having very few marketable players and losing. The dolphins currently have no players on roster that promote healthy jersey sales and such and thats a fact. Never once said this will take away from the poor product they have produced on the field these last 4 years. Dont worry we will have the same crappy gm doing what he does best, but Im saying its a a way to try to make money and create revenue without actually putting a good product on the field.

    So you see this as a way to make money, and while that may be true, this is one way the team is trying to generate interest and get people to go to the games and support the team. Winning is a start, but the fans can only help the team win when there are actually fans in the stands. This is a multi-faceted attempt to generate interest and excitement. Nothing wrong with pulling all the stops. And a logo change btw is something many fans have demanded for years. Ryan says hi from china.

    Leave it the same, the logo is fine, our uniforms are fine, more focus on our roster and less on doom and gloom. I have a feeling most of us wont like this new logo change and its just going to be a yet another bad decision by ross.

    Thanks for proving a point I made in vip. The fireland comments don't end if Ireland gets fired, i'm sure the "sell the team ross!" comments will start shortly.

    fans will be in the stands if we put out a good product, quit acting like fans havent supported a solid nfl team. attendence is down with team performance being down.
    u say winning is a start, we have to start winning something that we havent done much in the ireland era

    certain crowd lol. The dolphins have 4 straight non winning seasons, 4 straight non playoff seasons. Havent won a playoff game in a decade. Have only been to playoffs once since 2002.
    But fans are being unreasonable and shortsighted.

    Philbin hasn't been here 10 years. Neither has Tannehill. But go ahead I guess our rookie head coach and Tanneill (who's in china right now slaving away) don't deserve the fan's patience. I don't give a good goddamn what this team has done (or hasn't) in over a decade. I only care about what we're doing this day forward. New logo. lotsa money, draft picks and experience for our Young QB and young team. You're living in the past more than the guys who cling to the 72 undefeated team.

    So Ireland has not been the GM for 5 years correct me if Im wrong. Im not asking for Philben to be fired and was one of the biggest supporters of taking tannehill but yea Ireland can go right now in fact I will pay for his flight home coach of course

    More Logo - thoughts

    The more I see it the more the potential new logo grows on me, to the extent that our current one now looks old, cartoonish and just plain dumb. I would go further and dump the helmet stripes and simply have a white helmet and faceguard. The result would be much cleaner and classic looking as the new logo is longer and the stripes would detract from the new look making the helmet too "busy" looking.

    Look at the Bucs and Pats who dumped the helmet stripes when they revamped, too me it looks much sleeker and modern.

    I also think that the uniforms should be modernised and instead of the stale white on white the uniform should be tweaked to a light dolphin grey colour muchlike the Seahawks "wolf grey" uniform. A new-logo'd clean white non-striped helmet with bottlenose grey uniforms would look stunning in my opinion and represent a true revamp/modernisation of our look and identity. The aqua shirts would remain for night games or as our away uniform, perhaps all-aqua like against the Bears a few seasons ago.

    This mock-up for me (grey uni on the left albeit ideally a lighter shade) incoporating the new logo is how I think we should look in 2013

    http://dolphinblog.bitchindave.com/2...-uniforms.html

    And here is a (real rough!) image of my proposed helmet...its a Longhorns helmet that I crudely photoshopped but you get the idea.


    FotoFlexer_Photo.jpg

    The grey uniforms would make us look less soft but retain enough characteristics to retain our identity but allow for a new and hopefully successful next chapter.

    Im not playing hopscotch at all. You want to act like Ireland just got here for the sake of your arguement. The fact is he is one of the main men that built the dolphins the last 5 years , u can ignore his past here and act like he had no say fine but dont act like Im using a selective arguement. My arguement has been consistent and Im not just ignoring his role for the sake of conveinence.
    jeff Ireland has not done a good job in his role as GM over his 5 years he is the main ingredient in our current series of non winning seasons, the longest since our team's initial inception. So how have I jumped around in my opinion of him.

    Sorry man, I just can't get into the potential new logo. It's just really really bad. Give me the current logo any day over that.

    The Dolphins should just buy rights to use the Finsheaven.com logo. Now that logo is lean and mean. :)

    Just want to point out something: the logo is decided. It HAS to be because the dolphins already had to have submitted their new logo to the nfl by now.

    Frankly, the silence and lack of denials are telling...that's the new logo.

    I, for one, am happy. I know I'm in the minority.

    If Mike Dee is involved you've got to believe they butcher it. That's what I posted in that Griese/Marino thread regarding the logo a couple of months ago, and I'll stand by it.

    The toilet bowl version is hysterically inept. Imagine how many nights they stayed up, drawing the tail and head further and further outside the ring. That's enough. No it's not. Wrap it around the other side.

    I can just imagine that on a helmet. :lol:

    It looks like something you spin to win a free prize. I see that all the time in Las Vegas, nearby the keno lounge. The crowds gather around and cheer, or at least the host encourages them to cheer. It couldn't be more hokey. In our case it's a dilemma whether to spin by the tail section or the head section. You need audience help, like Price is Right when undecided whether or not to stand on 65 cents.

    I hope we didn't pay the design company any more than that. What a contribution to Dolphin lore.

    IMO, you've really got to be a simpleton to want a tough looking dolphin. Let teenagers be simpletons. They want black cars and black injected into every color scheme. We're not formidable unless we're scowling and black. Maybe the Canes should alter the U to be black, and with thorny ends. That will do it. Orange and green is sort of wimpy, come to think of it.

    Imagine the Boston Celtics screwing around with their logo. Of all the logos in professional sports, I always thought the Dolphin logo shared similarities with the Celtics logo. There's a prominent ring, a character with a hat who extends just outside the ring on both sides. Friendly looking character. Perhaps a bit too much going on overall, and not easily sketchable, but a warm feel to the entirety. Almost a wink and a nod, like we know something you don't. I always wondered if the fact that the Dolphins were born in the midst of the great Celtics dynasty of the '60s had something to do with our logo.

    If we give up our Celtics-caliber logo, we're just another slop franchise trying to look modern and tough, and remarkably ignorant of how irrelevant that is. Besides, if you adopt a terrible new fight song you can still play the old one more often than not. A logo change doesn't peel off at halftime.

    I like the logo from the late 70's the best.

    Not that I am a big fan of the leaks (don't hate them either), I've never been a big fan of the last update to our logo - still super cartoony and the helmet needs to go at this point. Why is everyone so attached to the current logo?

    I wish they'd just make the sun bigger, more vibrant with the Dolphin jumping into into it much like the 70s logo. That way you wouldn't need the Dolphin to be so curved and cartoonish like it is now.

    Also I'd love it if we had the logo on one side and a nice orange M on the other. Or numbers.

    i have no problems with the leaked logo. Although a few more options would be nice, i for one am ok with this one leaked, it seems a little more classy/cleaner than the current one (no dig at the current one which i also like). I honestly would like for the team to give options to the fans to choose from, that would be awesome.

    Personally, the change I would like to see is the uniforms having a grey base with Aqua and Orange trim. The logo that was used from the mid 70s to late 80s would look good with that. However, I am far more interested in the product on the field then how they are dressed to play.
