    No I suspect it will be a while before we see the "tweaks" they have made to the jerseys.

    Isn’t it usually around the draft that they unveil changes?

    As of right now there is not going to be a logo change. At least not what people are hoping for anyway.

    It's not a big change. Follow the link I provided. The uniform is getting "tweaked." it is not a rebrand.

    I'd be willing to bet, that if a poll was taken,
    70% or more would vote for our throwbacks/old logo. I sometimes believe that it' by design that Ross wont.......What an Idiot!!!

    Where is the guy that says it’s a Dolphin jumping through a ring of fire? That was my favorite post my 17 years as a member.

    What a bummer we are going to unveil a New Jersey, and there isn’t a player on the team worth supporting with a jersey purchase. Anyone want to buy a Landry throw back?

    That is true but the only reason for it is because the team hasn't done squat in the past 15+ years. Had there been a winning season, with an actual Super Bowl win, people wouldn't pine for the original uniforms as much.

    Sadly I don't even think there will be a press conference. There might just be a quick media packet about it right before the draft.

    I agree, there's 70% or more of the fans still running the treadmill of the perfect season and Marino/Shula years.

    The sun does look like a ring of fire during an eclipse. There's your out...

    Never did they say "logo" change, the logo is fine. The stripes may be altered, or number outlines, i figure.

    As opposed to embracing what?

    Seriously, our history is what separates us from an expansion team.

    just that the perfect season and Marino are irrelevant to 2018.

    You’re right. Those times when the Dolphins were actually a good team are irrelevant to the current era. This logo fits the current era like a glove: they’re both awful.

    He personally doesn't like the old logo or the old fight song and has continuously resisted fans telling him that they like those things because it would make him look and feel stupid to actually listen to them.

    Sounded like the colors/uniform is going to be "tweaked" not the actual logo

    If Ross had a brain he'd let the fans vote on a logo and uniform look. The winner of the vote is what we'd go with.

    Hope they get rid of that pearl(glitter) white on the helmet and just go flat white! Looks like crap with the white jerseys. Almost looks tan.

    My Love for Our Throwbacks and Old Logo, has nothing to do with that. We once had one of the most Awesome Uni's in the League....Now, arguably one of the Worst.
    You have to admit how freakin awesome our oldies look on the field!!!

    Again, the only reason why they were considered one of the best uniforms is because they actually won in them. If the Dolphins were like say, the Bucs, in their first years no one would care about the original uniforms. Hell I live in Colorado and I seldom hear people saying they should go back to their Orange Crush uniforms. They prefer the ones that came after because they won actual Super Bowls in them.

    As for my personal opinion of how the original uniforms looked. They are alright. They are extremely dated and from a design standpoint point very bland and unoriginal outside of the color combination. I personally think the new uniform, if given more orange and knocked the colors down a tone or two they will look just as good as the original uniforms.

    Oh for the people that say the current color scheme makes the team look like a bunch of wusses. I hate to break it to ya but that opinion has always been in place even when it was the darker colors. I had plenty of people give me **** about the Dolphins colors because they are considered pastel colors. You just have to live outside the Florida area to hear it.

    There's a lot of truth in that. When teams win their uniforms do look better. I bet if they did a survey the top uniforms would generally be most of the top teams and visa versa with the bad teams.

    There are aspects I like better about the classic uniform, the deeper aqua color for one. I do like aspects of the new design, the striping on the helmet is better and less of a reliance on the orange color.

    Recall how long it took to make the last uniform overhaul?! Months and months to go to a solid color with no creativity. It took longer to create a non creative uniform than it took to sign Suh to a 100+ million dollar contract. Don't hold your breathe

    Ask the damn fans their opinion and go with the fans idea for logo and uniform. Ross isn't smart enough to figure that out. Dolphins could really be a bigger hit with the fan base if they'd run a poll and let the fans decide.

    I'm being realistic here...the one (almost) universal wish from people who want old school and people who like the new stuff is that we need more orange, and that's what I think is going to be the main change...a thicker, more prominent number outline, and perhaps a couple of stripes, maybe even on the helmet.

    I'd be surprised if they do anything with the logo and/or aqua....while Tannenbaum seems to like the old stuff, Ross has forked out a lot of money incorporating Hard Rock with the new color and logo. Plus, from a business perspective, selling both new and throwback merchandise is a good double dip...if they went totally throwback, they'd be losing much of that income.

    I’m not a fan of the new logo. I tell everyone we are the Miami Whales now. What I understand even less, is those of you that pine for the Phins to go back to the old logo. When has that ever happened to a sports franchise? Where they said “our newest logo design looks so bad that we’re going back to the one we used 40-50 years ago.” Do you guys expect that to happen and that’s why you demand it or that you know it will never happen and yet you still demand it? Help me understand
