    There's actually a rumor floating right now that the team is looking to go back to the throwbacks full time, as the five year mandatory period between uniform swaps is expiring.

    Tom Garfinkel has dropped a couple of cryptic comments about this in the past.

    I swear I must be the only one who dislikes the old uniforms and logo. For me it is just a bad cartoon and the dolphin looks ridiculous with that helmet.

    I don't think they will go back to the throwbacks full time. If anything you will see them make the new uniforms look more like the old ones along the lines of what the Bills did.

    Not really I am no fonder of the new as I was of the old. They both could be trashed as far as I'm concerned.

    Throwbacks are great
    New(er) logo/uniform are garbage.

    I used to be like that but... I absolutely LOVE the way our throwbacks look now. because the uniforms are tightly wrapped around the pads and you don't have those tacky long loose sleeves on them. The logo is perfect and the colors are good. However, the new logo has grown on me and this new aqua that we have is freaking awesome! I would put the new aqua on the old logo uniforms and I think that would be the absolute best!

    Your not the only one.....but one of the few I think.

    Personally, I like the throwbacks. The new uniforms don't do anything for me.

    I’m pretty sure Miami would have had to notify the league last Mach (2017) if they were changing anything on the uniform. We could have and some how kept it from leaking but I doubt it. I know the titans will have new uniforms for next year

    I’m fine with the old school look. I prefer it vs anything else.

    It's possible that what we'll get next year is the old school design with the new aqua... the color of the 65,000 seats at Hard Rock that I can't imagine Ross replacing.

    I was a huge fan of the throwbacks as well, though i love the way the new logo looks on apparel. its funny, but the throw backs have been tarnished to for me by one particular individual who comments on every single official dolphins posts on facebook with "bring back the old logo" and as petty as it sounds i'm so tired of seeing those posts (yes i know i choose to read them) i hope they never change back just for spite.

    Man I hope so. I would even be ok if we used the new logo with the throwback uniforms although I prefer the throwback logo. I’m just not a fan of our past two uniform/logo concepts.

    As opposed to a tadpole looking like its back is getting broken whilst being squished like a fish?

    I like the 70's uniforms and hope we go back to them. I also like the way we played back in the 70's and hope we go back to playing like that as well

    Ozzy rules!!

    The only real difference between the '66 throwbacks and the 70's unis is the pants striping....in '66 it was aqua/orange/aqua, but was changed the following year to orange/aqua/orange, and remained that way until 1986.

    The old SHADE of aqua is mandatory. It looks strong whereas the new aqua looks like powderpuff baby blue on TV.

    The dolphin in the old logo looks like it washed up on the beach and got cooked by the sun and shriveled up.

    Yes I said it.

    That uniform Taylor is wearing in the above photo looks great. I also like the shade of blue we used in the early 80s like in the Charger game with the hook and lateral play in 1981 or in the super bowl victory over the Vikings after the ‘73 season.

    See. I think if you wake those shoulder and helmet stripes and add them to the current uniform it would help a ton.

    I like the new aqua (which is really aqua, and not teal), and I don't even hate the new logo. What I don't like about the new uniforms is just the construction of them. The "MIAMI" tramp stamp, and other things.

    Just poorly designed uniforms in some respects.

    Though to be fair, they're honestly not bad. Look at the new Bucs uniforms. Those are bad.

    Miami has one of the better Nike uni designs actually. I'd put Minnesota and Seattle at the top, Miami third. The Browns and Buccs redesigns are revolting. But as you said, they are pretty bland. And the color just doesn't come off well on TV. Sometimes it looks like a damn highlighter.

    I strongly believe they will redesign something that blends in the classic elements like shoulder stripes with the modern uni for the next redesign relatively soon.

    I agree. Although I love the throwbacks, I actually like our current uniforms a lot and love the logo. The previous logo/uniforms were ugly as ****.

    Bills finale. That's why I might attend. I have yet to attend a game with the new uniforms/logo and I doubt I'll ever do so.

    Yes, we got off lucky by Nike standards. It wasn't a butchering but a senseless moderate decline...change for the sake of change. Worst aspects are the washed out color scheme, tramp stamp and especially the motion sickness logo.

    That logo shift is so representative of all the blunders from this franchise over the past dozen years or so. No need to think. Excess thought leads to subjective ineptitude. The helmet curves toward the eyebrows. Maybe the logo should follow that path. Let's see, that's been good enough for 95+% of all examples. Instead we're applying some stupid rationalization that an actual dolphin twists this way or that way. Don't you think if it actually mattered the topic would have surfaced in let's say...the prior 45 years?

    That would be fine too. Just lose these current uniforms. They suck.

    I can’t stand the new logo. If I’m buying merch I only look at the retro stuff. I would love to switch permanently and wear the 90s uniforms for our alternate.

    My understanding was that you notify in March the year prior to the season, not 2 years. And since Miami had to keep the current uniform for this season, they couldn't make the change until spring of 2018 anyway.

    I could care less what the Dolphins play in. I am happy with winning and if they do it in their Spiderman underwear so be it.

    Informing the league the same year they want to make changes to a isn't enough time to change merchandise for that same year. That would mean they would have to change all their draft stuff in time for April and that's not just the stuff for the players to wear that includes the stuff that has to be sold to the public.

    If I remember correctly sports store usually have the catalogs with the new designs a month or two prior to a big event. I used to know a guy that ran our local sports store and he used to let us look at the catalog months before the new gear was out. They had those catalogs that far in advance so they could place their order early and have them in time for the event. I think the it thing that isn't on an advanced time table is Super Bowl gear and that merchandise isn't always the best quality in the first couple weeks you buy it.

    It’s definitely not the same year. The titans have already filed with the league, which is why we know they will have new uniforms. They’re could be a chance that we did and it didn’t leak but I highly doubt it. As much as I’d like to go back to the old look, I don’t think those in charge of this decision would change from the new logo after only 5 years. Makes it look like it was a huge mistake to change in the first place
