    Listening to the Phinsiders and I think it's Troy Drayton who said he has seen the full jerseys with helmet and that they look sweet. He said they're sick, and almost look futuristic. What I liked is that he said we're gonna look "fierce" with these jerseys and when you see it all put together you understand what Miami is going for. Anyways, hopefully that puts some of the concerned folks at ease for a bit until April 25th. I'm excited!

    Sorry for making another logo thread, you can combine it if you want.

    So excited. Do we get to see this on draft day? Or was that just gonna be the logo that's now leaked?

    From what I understand, the jersey unveil will be when our draft pick walks across the stage and holds up our jersey..... Which then leads to ask, what happens if we trade down and select someone that's not in the green room?

    Everyone's gonna freak over the word "futuristic" hahahaha. I for one love the sounds of it, but I am the demographic that likes the new Seahawks jerseys and the Oregon Ducks jerseys...

    I want to see the entire thing, helmet, jersey, pants. I want to see it all on someone wearing it. Will we have this kind of unveiling like you normally see teams do?

    I will reserve judgement, but from what I'm hearing, I don't like the direction.

    The thing that confuses me as that Dee has been touting "old school" for awhile, but it seems like everything will be a dramatic departure from anything in dolphins' history. I for one will mourn the loss of orange if it is greatly reduced in the uniforms.

    so if I understand this correctly, you're going to buy the jersey and donate it to good will? That's nice of you

    I think the nod to retro Dee referred to is the return to the aqua and orange shade from the first 30 years of this franchise, like Shula said.

    Are they "clean" looking? The white facemask makes me think they're leading to that direction.

    Mando's article yesterday said there will be a uniform & logo unveiling/team re-branding event earlier on draft day, the one that was supposed to be on the 18th but the NFL asked them to reschedule. He then commented the draft would be the first time the new jersey would be seen on national television not the first time for Miami fans

    And Mike Dee said that the crap they rolled out wasn't our new logo until he was forced to admit otherwise.

    These guys are all liars. Every indication is that the new uniforms will be ****.

    Lol. Well I never thought any of our jerseys seemed fierce. Maybe there's some unexpected pattern or design to invoke fierceness. I mean how do you make a dolphin and aqua appear fierce? It's a tall order that I hope they've met.

    Goodwill got around 80 million donation in 2011 so it is likely that someone will donate their old jerseys for the donation. They are good people and don't underestimate the power of donation that will tugs your heart.

    Sounds like someone paid Drayton handsomely to say such things. Our logos or uniforms have never been "fierce" and highly doubt this new logo/uni is going to look fierce or wonderful or anything else.

    i think it would be nice to have the "bluer" look on the unis w/ dark blue trim like on the dolphin.

    I wish they would remove the sunburst around the dolphin for the helmets like so:

    Looks much cleaner and sleeker.

    THat is exactly the idea that I brought up before. Just the dolphin for a logo would look much better. GET RID OF THE DAMN SUN!!!!

    It would defeat the purpose of the nickname for the state of Florida.

    I would have the dolphin with the tail wrapped around to the back of the helmet, similar to the Seahawks logo. The dolphin level like it's swimming in the water.

    Who cares. They're the Miami Dolphins, not the State of Florida Dolphins.

    I almost feel like they kept the sun just to say they "kept it traditional"... But the sun just detracts from the design, imo. Especially since the sun is a noisy, jagged mess. There is no balance or rhythm to it. Its just distraction.

    Change doesn't always mean it's for the better. Sometimes change makes things worse. Happens all the time

    The sun is definitely a distraction imo. The dolphin itself would look cleaner and neater.

    Is it confirmed that the Jerseys will be revealed on draft day? It seems people on this board are pretty confident about this.

    Yeah, Armando had it in his story from a few days ago, and Mike Dee confirmed on the Finsiders that it will be released on draft day.

    I am still trying to figure out why the dolphin was posed that way.
    Is the dolphin doing a belly flop or submerged under the ocean looking up to get some air?
    Just another example of an attempt at progressive thinking that goes against the tried and true.
    Change for changes sake.

    Excellent post. I'm reminded of this quote:

    “There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction” -- Winston Churchill

    ***

    The Dolphin forums have been overrun by a small but persistent group of posters who rely on two themes:

    * Anyone who opposes the logo is simply resistant to change
    * Our vintage logo is embarrassingly juvenile and is a laughingstock among other fanbases

    They act as if they keep repeating it enough, some weight will attach.

    I'm hardly a tradition-only type. If we improved the logo substantially I'd be among the first to celebrate and salute. But it simply wasn't the favorite. Our front office lacks brilliance, and the recent NFL logo changes have been lame, IMO. I can't think of an excellent one from the mid-'90s forth, when Carolina and Jacksonville came into the league. Both of those are overly complicated and therefore forgettable. Likewise with the Ravens. Tampa Bay improved the color scheme but not necessarily the logo. New England's Elvis is mediocre, IMO. Again, the color scheme saves it. I thought the old center hiking the ball was a terrific logo other than it simply had grown too large, overwhelming the helmet.

    Worst change of all was the Oilers franchise, abandoning the great oil derrick in favor of whatever that current thing is, some type of swoosh. A poor man's Nike. I can't even get myself to look at it. Not worth it.

    Previously, Houston's derrick fit the top requirement of a logo...distinct and successfully sketched in 5-10 seconds.

    The Houston Texans logo is probably one of the better logos to come about in the past 20 years. Are you referring to the Titans? Because they have an awful logo.
