    Reporting live from somewhere


    New orange will be considerably lighter closer to a neon orange and aqua will actually be noticeably lighter. Blue is a little more of Avery deep aqua rather than navy.


    Take it for what it's worth but I speak to team and NFL approval/ licensing associates regularly

    Yeah it never looked as it did. Maybe they figured one era was ending, so start fresh? Changing the colors clearly wasn't the freshness we needed but, whatever, we're past it. I like the idea of getting some of our older colors back. Sometimes when these new distributors get their hands on a product, it falls to hell (look at some of the horrific NHL jersey right after Reebok acquired the rights). Hopefully we are the beneficiaries. Sounds like a good start at least.

    Glad to hear we are getting the aqua back, it was getting a little too close to green, or teal.

    That old aqua is tight as hell. Love it. Mix it with a lighter/softer orange. Very Miami. Would be awesome.

    The orange we got now for the alternate jerseys is just absolutely terrible, so this can't be worse. It can't be.

    How is the current Aqua color getting close to green? Not even close to looking like the jets green.

    Guess wanting the colors to be darker was a hopeless thought. Should've guessed it would be something dumb with Mike Dee in charge of it.

    The Chargers baby or powder puff blue color looks like garbage. Their old dark blue was a lot better

    If you could check the sales of pre baby chargers and now , I have a feeling they would 10x under.

    So I guess we'll be a mix of baby blue and the ugly orange creamsicle of the old Buccaneers uniform. What a great idea. :bobdole:

    Jesus. What does it really matter? Isn't the on-field product more important than the uniform colors? If you really have the legitimacy of your manhood wrapped up in what shade of blue and orange the team uses that is downright sad.

    Gentlemen and Ladies I present the the new logo:

    [​IMG] It is retro and modern while keeping the same look as 1997 but, bringing back the old colors and the old sun ring.

    Our helmet:

    [​IMG] I love the grey facemask the retro days so if we go retro we go all the way.

    Our Uniforms:

    [​IMG] These look very nice and I think I did a real good job with them.


    If this this the way we go I am all for it! These are the colors schemes the OP said they might be (light neon orange, very deep aqua for outline, and dolphin blue aqua for the body. Yes, this is not the real logo it's my creation that I made gothcha :d-day:. Just thought I would share and get feedback. If this is the true way we go. Holy **** I think they nail it.

    I dont get it. are you saying this IS our new logo, or what you want it to be?...please be more careful with your wording.

    I like the unis except for the logo on the sleeve, it's redundant of what's on the helmet...the space should be used for sleeve striping.

    No bro, I just made a mock up of what the OP said. Why don't you like it? It is very hard to do something with our logo in general because its a dolphin. Retro the colors will be lighter. Something completely new and it will look like this: [​IMG]

    Dark Teal, Black, Deep Orange. Just a another mock up of FINFAN I made. There are so many of us who want to go retro but, there are so many of us that want darker. Like yourself. Either way truthfully it works!

    I'm not a fan of lighter faded colors. But if we can survive this changeover with an altered color scheme, and we lose the helmet on the dolphin, but the basic logo is not butchered, I'll consider it an escape.

    The idea right now is to fade the Mike Dee era with as little damage as possible.

    Pretty sure he's referring to the fact that it has been stated several times that the new logo would be less like a cartoon like our current logo.

    As Houtz mentioned, the Dolphins already stated the new logo would not look like a cartoon, so that one can't be it.

    In any case, half the ones you mentioned are not cartoons. The ONLY one that honestly wouldn't look out of place in a Disney show is the Dolphins logo. The only other one that could possibly be considered a cartoon out of those is the Cardinals logo, and possibly the Bengals logo. The rest are done in a style consistent with logo design.

    All I know is, when you see a team like the Ravens and look at their colors, it speaks tough and physical football. Then you look at our colors. It makes us look soft and weak.

    I actually really dislike the Ravens logo... Too much stuff going on with it.

    My favorites are the classics like Green Bay, SF, Dallas, Chicago and Colts. They are simple and timeless. As a result, they won't ever go out of style.

    The more I see some of these classic logos, the more I wish we would just go back to the way we were. The old logo wasn't as cartoony as the newer one, and with the throwback colors it would look great and I think most of the fans would embrace it. Definitely not loving the Sea World Dolphins logo leak. I'm not going to hate it, but I really hope that there are some other logos that are being considered.

    Well, better get used to them. I don't see the team breaking away from the aqua/teal and orange/coral combination any time soon. If you're really think our colors look weak, then I don't know what to tell you. I'm sure the '72 Dolphins would disagree. I mean look at the Packers colors...I'm green and yellow don't exactly convey toughness, but heck... they've won the most NFL championships in league history.

    Then was is your definition of a cartoon? Animated correct that my guess for you? Its not. It just is a simple drawing showing the features of its subject in a simplified way. Therefore, all of those that I stated are correct. Just stating the facts.

    Oh okay tell that to the 1971, 1972, and 1973 Dolphins who went to 3 Super Bowls in row with those unis and retro logo. Seriously. Wow.

    Dude, I've been drawing cartoons my whole life. It's my preferred art style. I can tell a cartoon when I see one, and I can tell a logo design when I see one. The dolphins logo is a full on cartoon character. If you dropped that dolphin into a comic strip or an animated show as a character, no one would think the wiser. It's a full fledged character! The other logos in the NFL could not work that way.
