    The original logo is a dolphin jumping through a ring of fire which was a thing that dolphins would do at sea world for example back in the day. It was never a sun. The new logo is a sun because obviously the dolphin is not jumping through a ring of fire, it is swimming in an upward motion. This is how they dropped the ball on the new logo. The dolphin must return to its normal position because currently it doesn’t make sense.

    The original logo was a sun, and the dolphin is jumping in front of it, not thru it....

    And now, the all time battle to rival even the UNSTOPPABLE FORCE vs the IMMOVABLE OBJECT:

    FAN DESIRE vs THE EGO OF STEVE ROSS

    Actually, looks like we already got a winner, and it's not the fans.

    This is just the writer giving his opinion of what the logo is. Many people are uninformed. It’s a ring of fire 100%. Look at the original logo. Even many inside our organization think it’s a sun but it is not. It’s a sun now but not originally.

    The current uniforms represent a era of mediocrity.

    Get rid of the derpy logo once and for all, and go back to our throwbacks permanently. Such a simple and necessary change.

    5 years later and the logo still absolutely sucks, so... yeah. Don't expect it to stop until the Dolphins fix it.

    A Dolphin wearing a special needs helmet isn't derpy... nope.

    He had some great catches...always seemed like a cross between his athletic brilliance and Fiedler’s noodle arm. He had some ridiculous moments, always a favorite Fin of mine.

    Thanks for that. It was a good read to about the history and how iconic players view Miami's logo and colors. It is a sun not a ring of fire :p. The one part of that read I didn't get however was how the writer highlighted the new uniform's emphasis on orange. Personally I don't see that in the current look. This is one change I hope we get in the spring.

    The only way I see our logo having fire is if it is a camp fire on the ground and the dolphin is being cooked. So obviously that is not the case, clearly it's a dolphin jumping out of the water with the sun shining behind it.


    This is fire

    When I was a kid, I thought it was a ring of fire. Somewhere along the way I realized that the dolphin was jumping in front of the ring, not through it.

    If it’s a ring of fire, the Dolphin is missing the target worse than a Cutler 15 yard pass

    Is that supposed to be proof?

    Listen, I'm truly open-minded about this, all I'm asking from you is some real evidence. It's almost universally described as a sun...even on the team's official website.

    If you, or any of our Fin Brethren are interested...I just purchased 5 Throwback Caps (with our CLASSIC THROWBACK logo)
    from Fanatics.Com. It's EXACTLY the one we saw Gase wearing so much in His Press Conferences. I bought the 5 in fear, that I wouldn' be able to find them again. THEY ARE FREAKIN SWEEEET!!! INCREDIBLE QUALITY 39/30s!!!

    "Highlighting the evolution is the return to the original aqua and orange color scheme that has come to embody the team and the surrounding Miami area. The iconic elements, the sun and the Dolphin, remain prominent and allow the redesigned logo to remain connected throughout the team’s history while representing the constant influence of the South Florida environment and community.

    Within the logo, the aqua, along with the marine blue, first introduced in 1997 and now finessed through this process, are inspired by the color of South Florida’s Atlantic Ocean; while the orange is representative of the bright South Florida sun. The return to the original colors also salutes the accomplishments and rich history of the Dolphins, the first professional sports franchise in the state of Florida. The enhancements also incorporate a modern, more aggressive approach on the original logo developed nearly a half century ago. The Dolphins’ positioning has been refined and now features the moment of most power in the marine mammal’s trajectory, right before it breaks the plane of the water. The sun has also been refined to incorporate more rays as well as an overall enhancement to a more brighter and vibrant color. "

    So 99.99% of fans, the players, the Dolphins staff, and anyone else with common sense who say it’s a sun, are wrong... because you have proof that a random message board member BELIEVES it might be a ring of fire?
