    I work in the graphics industry and I swear that the "i" in Dolphins is crooked.

    I think all the letters are slanted slightly.

    I wish I could find a new authentic Tanny jersey. I have only seen screen prints for sale online and I can't stand those jerseys.

    Fantastic work as always, Nubs. Much appreciated!

    Absolutely love the stormtrooper look of these new uniforms.

    Just ordered a Jordan aqua jersey and mini helmet. FYI guys mini helmets of the new logo are available on amazon.

    Thanks. I wish they would get some of that **** for sale. Whenever I see something I like, I got to pounce. Got my new logo, nike shorts in the mail today...go to lids.com if you are interested.

    My big purchase is the center of the He-man room...the authentic helmet. Should be in tomorrow. Football Fanatics has them.

    Still the Fins have been slow getting the new gear out.

    Why is the logo on the truck and the logo on the helmet two different logos?

    A mini helmet is one of the things I got at the team store. They had full size helmets also, but I thought the logo on them looked odd. They didn't seem to be positioned correctly. The logo on the mini helmets matched what the actual helmet looks like.

    The jerseys they had at the store were Wake, Tannehill and Wallace. Didn't get a jersey, mostly because I have been burned in the past with players leaving after I get a jersey. Actually haven't bought one in four years. Though I did get some nice t-shirts and a nice collared shirt.

    They were the same, the angle and lighting of the photo might make them look a little different.

    The other thing is that the tail of the dolphin on the helmet curves around the back of the helmet a little bit. So in the pictures the tail looks a little more straight than on the truck. But in person they look the same.

    I think it's the "h" to the left of the "i" that makes it look that way.

    Yeah, I have a Pat White jersey. He didn't last long unfortunately. I loved the kid though.

    Is it just me? The dolphin on the helmet is more flat where as the dolphin on the truck is more angled up

    I like to get those jeresey tshirts with the name and number but didn't like the ones they came out with. They made it look like it was fading. I did get one of the new era caps though.

    The tail curves around the back of the helmet a little, the picture doesn't do the helmet justice. Here is a picture from OTAs that show it is the same logo.

    Nub, did you notice if they had the sewn jerseys in yet (I forget what Nike calls them- Premiere?)? They've been painfully slow releasing certain gear, and the sewn jerseys are at the front of the list.

    I'm looking for one too. It's been horribly slow and I won't wear a screen print jersey.

    No, just the $120 replica jerseys, not the authentic ones. They had aqua and white Tannehill, aqua and white Wallace and aqua Wake.

    Didn't see it, but they are building a Sonic.

    Great to know the mini helmet I got will be accurate. I was actually considering getting a full size helmet because I am such a fan of the new scheme.

    I too am a long suffering fan who manages to always get the jersey of the player who sucks for the team or gets waived. Its almost a skill of mine. Only reason I got a Jordan jersey is that my name is Jordan, so even if the player sucks I will have a jersey with my name on it.

    They are different. The logo on the truck was the original intention. The Dolphins' brass never contemplated that the reverse C posture of the dolphin didn't work well on the helmet, violating common sense by running opposite of the natural curvature, leaving a motion sickness effect. Subsequently they have quietly tinkered with the angle of the logo itself, and the slant of the tail, as it applies to the helmet. I've seen at least three different versions. The version in the store may be the latest evolution, soon to replace anything that appeared during OTAs.

    All you have to do is check the background of that picture with Griese, Marino and Tannehill to unveil the new uniforms. There's a helmet with the new logo between Griese and Tannehill. It's the truck version, with the severe upward slant and curved tail. That's certainly not what we are seeing today on the helmets.

    I give them credit for partially salvaging a bad situation.

    You are wrong, they are the same. The photo I took doesn't give the helmet justice. Once you see the helmet in person, as I have, you will see that they are the same.

    The upward angle is a good change along with the non-helmet on the dolphin.

    Maybe some fans need to buy a helmet and get a heat gun to level the logo to their liking.Heck one could also buy the car door sticker and put it any angle they want.

    They nailed the colors.

    I was very fearful of what Mike Dee and co. would do the beloved logo, but all in all it's very exciting.

    Now if they can do something about that dump of a stadium....
