    The phinsider has also picked up the logo leak. They are basically stating what is known. BUt Ben Volin is quoted as basically saying he is hearing from.his sources that this is a legitimate leak of the true new logo. I for one am starting to really like the new logo if true. I have a mock up of what it could look like on a helmet too and it looks supe ipAK8DEheXMmf.png r sleek and clean ...check it out

    Doesn't look as bad on the helmet but damn I hate straying away from the classic look!

    I'm just not feelin it....I think it's because of the visor which looks way too big for the helmet. Do visors stick out that far?

    I would just go back to the original logo.

    My only issue is that it looks a bit like a whale.

    Some aggresive looking eyebrows and the tail pointing downwards would be nice

    I like it on the helmet much more than the regular drawing. I definately think it needs an eye though

    I understand why they made the fin point downwards, dolphins actually swin like that so it makes it looks realistic. I think the fin pointing that way looks better than if it pointed downward

    The original one on DolFans NYC appears to have an eye. It is just a very poor quality photo that it is hard to pick up the navy blue eye. Whoever made the "clean" version of the logo missed the eye.

    I wish they would ditch the white Uniforms the green/aqua ones always look so much better. I guess its to do with the heat at home games though.

    I don't mind it.... I just would prefer the tail stay in the position it currently is in

    Am I the only one that thinks that tail is waaaaaay too long? The logo isn't bad but having that long of a tail makes it look very disproportionate.

    I think it just appears that way because of the way the dolphin is flowing, but its proportioned quite well.

    I don't even care about the logo. I just want something other than white on white EVERY week. I wouldnt mind something like the way the Seahawks road unis are with the gray pants or even grayish jersey. Changing the logo but doing nothing to the entire color scheme of the uniform would be pointless.

    It's not the worst I've seen, but I'll stick to buying vintage.

    It doesn't at all. It looks like a bottlenose dolphin -- moreso than the current logo. What makes it look like a whale to you?

    The more I see it the more it grows on me, to the extent that our current logo 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 with the new logo (assuming this is it). That would be much cleaner and classic looking as the new logo is longer and the stripes detract from the new look making the helmet too "busy" looking.

    I 100% agree however that the uniforms should also be changed and instead of the white on white the uni 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) incoporating the new logo is how I think we should look in 2013

    And here is (a real rough) image of my proposed helmet...

    It actually looks decent on the helmet, and I was someone who didn't like the original picture intitally. Maybe I am warming up to it.

    The fact that there are no eyes is intentional. The franchise has been wandering without vision for quite some time now.

    It doesnt have eyes so I guess were the ganges dolphins. Which I dont like-the eyes could provide a lot of personality. I really dont want a sweet little dolphin diving through a sun with a smile anymore, but that leak looks plain. I love our colors but we need to switch up the unis other than the teal jersey/white pants combo

    Maybe im picky because my school trots out on saturdays with the best unis in college.

    I think it looks more like a jet airplane. It needs eyes BAD!!!! I hated it at first but have to admit it is growing on me. I wish they would mess with the colors a little bit and change the uniform a little but I can't say that I HATE it. The Jets fans should love it since it looks more like a jet than a dolphin.

    Not a fan.

    The sun burst looks like a bad tribal and the dolphin isn't any more realistic from what was rumored. They made it worse..if this is it.
