    Just a quick question, with all the Ricky news lately this is probably the last thing on your minds but

    Why are the Dolphins so fond of their White uniforms, I believe they wore them in just about every game this season except for the one vs. Tampa Bay.

    I know wearing white gives you a supposed advantage in that if reflects sunlight rather than absorbs it..but Do they hate the teals that much?

    Again I apoligize if this is an insanely stupid topic but it's just something that was on my mind and I needed to know lol.

    It's all about the heat factor. They did a test on the sidelines once between the dolphins white and the raiders black and the difference was 20+ degrees.

    if thats the case Reggie Howard must be Sabans favorite player, considering the amount of dust on him.....from getting smoked all day long!

    It's funny that you mention this. But I had only found out recently that white is considered their home colors. I've been a dolfan for almost a decade but I had always thought that the Teal was but lo and behold, White is their home colors. I had ignored the fact that I watched almost every game, Alot of the pics had them in the whites, and many people wore the white to the games. I think I had always based it on Madden Football video games where they are teal. Though even in the opening of the game, all dolphin players are wearing white. For me this is the biggest thing I have found out about the fins for the last 2 years. I told everyone that I could.

    As for why, I think that you are right, white is cooler to play in. Plus when they travel, it's usually to a colder place, therefore the teal can come out. I think it's very intelligent.

    Honestly, I am alone in saying this, but I kinda wish that their alternate color of orange was their home color. Just my 2 cents.

    That's exactly right. it's part of the home field advantage if you can keep your team cooler than the other team.

    The Dolphins are always the cooler team on the field :cooldude:

    and Mr. Dolfan I agree the Orange unis are pimp! too bad we only get to see those during primetime night games.

    Thanks for the replies everyone

    Thier home uniforms which are the white pants and white jerseys are my favorite by far. I am not a big fan of the Aqua/Teal jerseys (even though I have one) or the pants. I prefer the all white. I would love to see some orange pants and white jerseys ala Hurricanes!

    The real answer lies in the tradition of the Dolphins.

    Go google some images of the '72 Dolphins and you'll quickly notice that there are none that don't have the Dolphins wearing white.

    The Dolphins have traditionally worn their white jerseys at home, but have in the recent past worn their teal jerseys to away games. Saban liked the throwback element to the glory days in the 'phins history, so he's opted to go to strictly white.

    I don't think we'll see the orange jerseys again for a long time. It's a shame too, because I liked them.
