    i think the new fin heaven logo is BAD *** and with a minor bit of tweaking and coloring (too close to canes' colors) would make a sweet new look dolphins logo. i love the attitude, and we need it after wanny *****-ized the franchise over the past few years. what do you guys think?

    I am fine with what we have. With all due respect, yours look cartoonish.

    Umm, NO. If anything, we need to go back to how it used to be.

    I love the FH logo. It would be pretty cool to have it as our teams logo but I guess this logo is what defines FINHEAVEN as its own.

    I agree with those who would like to see the team go back to the more realistic Dolphin. I would also welcome the *removal* of navy and the introduction of sleeker uniform numbers that look more like what the Bears wear.

    I'd second that. A uniform upgrade would be due but I hope we don't ever go into some retro-spaced out Falcons/Bengals style. Plain and simple -- I like our style.

    How is it too close to the canes logo? Those are our colors right there, orange, aqua, navy, and white. The canes don't have aqua, they have a dark green color, and there is no dark green in there........

    I personally would be down wit changing the logo to the FH one. it would be tight... but i understand the older people on the board that prefer the "traditional" logo. i say hell wit tradition, those days died when Marino retired and Wanny took over. its an new franchise now. but whatever...

    Does anyone have a pic of the older logo that we had? i kinda forgot what it looked like... haha

    We need to go back to the old logo if we do anything. The old logo and jerseys were the best. The uniforms we wore on Thanksgiving a couple years ago are the ones we should wear all the time, or some variation of them anyway.

    I am quite happy with our current jerseys, and like others said if it was a change i would want it to be very slight and go more back than forward!

    It was pretty much the same except there was no Navy Blue in the logo and it looked less 3d, and the sun had really tiny orange lines instead of the curvy "rays" it has now. I personally prefer the current logo to the older ones, and I don't want our logo to be the Finheaven one, I liek the finheaven one but for the site, not our team logo, it looks way too cartoony.

    I think a teal dolphin isnt really correct, how bout a silver or grey. And some silver in our uniforms as well would look good.

    The old logo, please...

    We don't need a logo which looks like it was done for a cartoon show on the side of the helmets. It's fine for a web site, but not a uniform. And that orange uniform is the most misbegotten thing I have ever seen in a Miami stadium. It looks like the old Denver uniforms, which were almost as ugly. We'd need to change our team name to the Miami Traffic Cones if we used those things for anything. Use them on the guys directing traffic near the stadium - that is the most appropriate thing for them.

    I personally liked the one with the Metal, retrolooking helmet, done by DarkMistress I believe. That one there is ok, but I don't really care for it to be honest. It definately doesn't improve on the Dolphins current logo that's for sure.

    The dolphins are not a punk or ghetto style team. Maybe a community league or if lucky an AFL team would use that dolphin design. But for a professional team it is ridiculous. They would be laughed off the field.

    Remember, they just cancelled the Loonatics cartoon (old looney tunes- bugs bunny, daffy duck) with characters ghettofied in a manga style. It was stupid and now it's cancelled. So would this design for the Dolphins.

    well said sky pilot, I really, REALLY, agree with your thoughts on the donko lookin' orange uni's.



    YES, this is also well said !

    and for the comments on the FH logo... there is NO AQUA in that picture. Our team colors are AQUA and ORANGE, not blue, navy or otherwise, not teal, not red orange, Aqua and Orange !

    our current uniforms suck imo. it's not the 70s and 80s anymore people. step into the 21st century. let go of the past. whether you like the finheaven logo or not, the dolphins uni's need a new look. im for a crisper cleaner tighter look without the 3 stripes and 3d looking letters. less orange would be good as well. the closest thing we've got to what i like are the alternate dark blue jersies we have but have not worn in a game.

    That's cause those Navy crap uniforms suck, and every other team seems to have them as their main color. I hate navy and I never want to see this team wear it. I love the originality of our colors.

    We need to stop with the orange and go with the aqua. Everyone says how original our uniforms are but we never wear the color that makes them original! I understand we don't wear them at home during the day so the other team has to wear the dark jersey in the sun, but aqua is our color. I have to agree though, the aqua pants with the white jersey on the road are pitiful. They look like we slapped them together at the last second. In baseball, basketball, and hockey, a lot of teams have third jerseys that have completely different designs. They're usually pretty cool and sell well. For instance, the Edmonton Oilers have the one with the big drop of oil and the Dallas Mavericks go with a different color scheme. Maybe we should try that for the road.

    I think the brighter aqua of the 80's was a better jersey color than now ... does anyon know where I can by those older jerseys?

    Dude, they were replicas of the '73 unis. They're classic. Have to disagree with you bro.
