    So what you're saying is yes it will be another 5 years. Even though the changes are described as minor it sounds more than adjusting #'s or stripe width. The helmet, jersey, and pants are all effected by the changes and if there is any color changes then that would constitute a new uniform.

    Personally even though I want the throwback uniform I can live with Miami going back to our traditional aqua and please Mr. Ross get rid of the navy in the color scheme. At least return to Miami's legacy colors of aqua, orange, and white even if you won't return to the classiest uniforms Miami has worn.

    The only thing we know for sure is Miami is changing. This confirms they notified the league to change the uniform in March. With nothing specific and an unnamed source that is all we can conclude.

    This. 100 mother effing percent. If it’s tweaks, add the grey face mask, stripe socks, incorporate more orange i.e. stripes, and get rid of the dark blue borders/stripes.

    Personally I favor a change to dolphin gray/silver for our third uniform. We should look like a true dolphin.

    Last I looked eagles aren't silver and white. Falcons aren't red, black and white. Broncos don't have orange manes. Longhorns aren't red, blue and have a star for an eye. Rams aren't blue and white. Seeing a trend here?

    Looks good but I think it looks too much like the throwbacks for them... They will want to have the two sets be a bit more distinct from each other so that when they roll out the throwbacks there is more excitement.

    Here my own wishful thinking mock-up. More orange, added stripes, gray face mask, and a darker teal. I think it would make a big difference. I LOVE the throwbacks but I also like looking forward to them on the few times they’re used. I can see them becoming commonplace if they’re made permanent.

    Edit. Uploaded wrong file earlier.

    Valid point. Maybe keeping the aqua brighter but I really have a hard time with the bright shade of it.

    The Bills changed their uni to be very close to their throwbacks, with the only major difference being the helmet logo.

    That might be nice for the third uniform. I dislike the orange unis and the color splash ones are awful.

    I don’t think they’d change the aqua because they’d have to repaint the seats

    It's not rocket science. Ross needs to listen to the fans and what they favor. A permanent switch to the throwbacks is what the majority wants.

    It's accounting science. The current way, many fans will buy the regular jersey to stay current, and the Dolphins will still sell throwbacks. If we switch to throwbacks full-time, no matter how many of us want them as the full-time look, what alternate jersey are we buying? Orange? Navy? No alternate will sell as well as the throwbacks.

    I know I'm being rigid here but I can't help it. Miami doesn't have teal. Miami has aqua. Teal is more Carolina Panther color to Jacksonville color.

    I have not purchased a single piece of Dolphins merchandise since we changed our uniforms & until they change these horrifying colors & logo I don't plan on it in the future. We need to go back to the uniforms we wore in the mid 90s.

    I LOVE that uniform on the bottom right. More orange and no blue and stripes on the sleeve. Honestly the best outcome with our current logo/colors.

    That isn’t accurate. If we went to the ‘66 uniform and made our throwback the ‘90s uniform we would sell so many more jerseys over all.

    Yeah I know. LoL That’s always been the case. But they’re just names, really. The official hex number for the color (008E97) is listed as aqua on the website but let’s be real. That color is as teal as it gets. The throwbacks are definitely aqua.

    The mid-90s uniforms were just bastardized versions of the throwbacks. They were uglier than the current version IMO, especially the Mickey Mouse dolphin. Plus, what exactly would they be celebrating about that uniform? First round playoff exits?

    2nd round playoff blowouts. 38-3, 62-7, 27-0, those fun times.

    In all seriousness though, if they'd have just gotten rid of the drop shadows on those, they wouldn't have been half bad.

    Still...on these "tweaks", I hope they color the face masks again, aqua (or whatever the color is, I don't want to get into semantics)...do the helmet striping the way it was until 2013, and add more orange to the jerseys. I can't stand how the white uniforms look. The orange looks just non-existent.

    Throwbacks 2X a year I can live with, and from a marketing standpoint, I can understand not going back to them full time, even if I disagree with it...but they just need to add more orange, and stripes to the sleeves.

    What’s to celebrate about the current logo and uniform? Irrelevance? Losing season after losing season?

    I want anything but the old "cartoon looks like it was made by a 4-year-old" logo. I like the uniforms but that logo would be the worst in all professional sports. Give me the retro unis with the current logo and I could get behind that...

    What nike wants, nike gets. The fans will have absolutely NO say in this.

    Too many corporate types in play here, most of whom have swallowed the Kool-Aid of so-called "politically correct", "progressive" memes of change and forward and never-go-back and Rubicon yada yada. It is so predictable that they will move farther away from the original looks. Some people want to erase all vestiges of history and tradition because they take offense to things that happened in some timeframe. Sorry but "old" is NOT evil.

    But the biggest reason the change will come is probably that they didn't feel they made enough $$$ on the 2013 redesign. I have never bought anything with the tail-up logo and powderpuff aqua, and simply refuse to do so.

    As Miami is sticking with the new logo, I'd be good with the bottom right then just an opposite look with the aqua jersey (to include stripes). This is a good look and even though I love the throwbacks even better, we can still break them out twice a year.

    For the improved look pictured, I might tweak the number font a bit. While better than the current new number font, we can still do better.

    I want to see something with the sun still incorporated. After all its the sunshine state right? If it was like the sun and inside were like 3 dolphins breaching water that might be cool
