    Yup, Beasley article mentions what the fans want- anyone listening? Apparently not.

    My guess is they’re adding more orange, a common complaint from even people who prefer the current design.

    Chosing evolution as the solution could lead to a revolution.

    Then why, for god sakes, would you open the thread, much less take the time to reply?

    Looks like you are wrong. Some changes are coming for next season. Although it doesn't sound like they will be drastic changes like going back to the throwback look.

    Disappointment is Ross' legacy. Can't deliver a winner and can't deliver a uniform look that makes fans happy.

    Because as a mod I read virtually every post in the mains and because I felt like it.

    Those uniforms would be so sweet. At least we fans could feel like winners with the apparel we would wear and the team would look very good on the field. Maybe it would help them play better too haha.

    I’d say the enabling of incompetence is his legacy, but disappointment is right up there.

    I have been a fan since the mid 70's and I think I am nearing the end of my rope. Not only has this team been mis-managed since they pushed Shula out the door but the dont even seem to care what their fans want with something as simple as our uniforms. Is Ross totally blind to what his fan base thinks? UGH!!!!

    Add the stripes back to the sleeves! Take the focus away from the Nike logo.

    But he did upgrade the Stadium big time. Will always deserve props for that.

    Yes, and get rid of the redundant logo on the sleeve, the worst uniform concept of the last few decades...

    Some people get quite worked up about the subject!

    You know what surprises me most about uniforms? That the NFL doesn't copy the premier league and have every team release 3 new uniforms every season. They would make loads of cash from it, even though it would annoy many fans

    Add more orange, please...I hate our practice looking home whites. Orange stripe down the middle of the helmet, more of an Orange outline around the numbers, and stripes on the sleeves.

    We’re keeping the throwbacks too, so I’d be happy with more Orange.

    This franchise can’t even do the simple things correctly. They have a beautiful uniform concept already on the shelf that the fans love but instead will tweak the current abomination. The real kicker is they will still tease us a couple times a year with the uniform most fans would prefer to be permanent. Ross is clearly a better businessman than I will ever be but he seems to be out of his element as an NFL owner.

    Interesting... From the sounds of it it will be minor. If I had to guess it would involve adding more orange as a trim color on parts of the uniform. I could even see a return to the classic, iconic striping on the helmet: aqua | orange | aqua.

    I'd love it if they add sleeve stripes similar to the throwbacks somehow.

    I could also see them darkening the aqua just a tad so it doesn't look neon powderpuff aqua on TV.

    I actually really like the logo you have in your avatar. I'd much rather have them stick an M like that on the helmet than the current swirly dolphin...

    Interesting...

    http://news.sportslogos.net/2018/02/16/miami-dolphins-making-a-uniform-tweak-in-2018/

    Longtime readers of ours may remember we had a series at one point called Fix-It Friday in which we had a designer look at an existing uniform set and try to tweak it slightly to make it just a little bit better. The reason that series ended was because our designer, Brandon Moore, ended up getting a full-time design job with (you guessed it) the Miami Dolphins.

    For fun, here was his proposal to tweaking the Dolphins uniform from back 2015:

    I would imagine Uniform designs would be lead by Nike rather than designed inhouse

    orange stripe on helmet and stripes on sleeves would make me happy. just coral around the numbers would also look great

    Ya, not saying those are the uniforms, but I'd imagine their in house designers would have some influence on the direction. Nike will design, but with a lot of input from the Dolphins designers and leadership.

    Need to get this off of my chest. I hate our new uniforms. They are cartoonish and belong in the XFL. Go back to the throwbacks or the ones we had up until these clown costumes. They were iconic.

    If we modify our current uniforms are we stuck for another 5 years?

    It depends on whether the league considers the tweaks major enough to be considered a new uniform...teams will oft times do things like change stripe widths or move sleeve numbers to the shoulder without the five-year rule applying.
