Dolphins getting a new logo, looks like.
Tue Jan 08, 2013 4:47 pm
  • http://www.thephinsider.com/2013/1/8/38 ... forms-2013

    One of the worst kept secrets in the NFL this season was the Miami Dolphins' planned logo change. Hints to near confirmations throughout the year from CEO Mike Dee, kept the fans abuzz about what could be getting ready to come out of Davie. Yesterday, owner Stephen Ross confirmed what everyone already knew: the Dolphins will have a new logo in 2013.


    Quick Google search came up with this:

  • They should have a logo featuring a bunch of old bastards yawning in a half empty stadium.

  • Man, I hope that's not the actual new logo. I gotta say I like the current one better. That possible new one looks like a logo for an airliner or travel agency or something.

  • They should have a logo depicting how they were the last team to ever beat the Seahawks. In a couple years that'll be a big deal.

  • The Dolphins are one of the most boring franchises in the league, right up there with the Bills and Browns. They need to completely redo the whole face of it.

    Maybe they can pay Carroll and Schneider for advice?

  • I pretty much always like the old logos better (Bring back the foppish Buccaneer! And the Patriots tri-corner hat hiking the football guy) but I understand why corporations like to update. And it's not like the old stuff ever goes away any more, in this era of vintage everything.

    And yea, that was exactly my first thoughts. Yay, an airliner. Not a fear-inspiring logo. At all. With all the think tanks and agencies out there, they could have come up with a lot better ones, even with such a weak appearing animal as the dolphin.

    Yeah, but new logos and unis mean new revenue as everybody runs out to buy the new crap.

    As always, it's all about the Benjamins.

  • I like a lot of the new logos and colors. Makes the older ones cool by default, even when some of them were not. But this one is not a step in the right direction. Unless they want the announcers to keep screwing up and calling the cheerleaders stewardesses.

  • Just for the record, I don't think there's any confirmation that that's the actual official new logo. Just something that was leaked. Could well be the one but I don't think we know that for sure.

    They should just sign every player we bring in to visit for a while but end up not signing. It'd probably work.

  • You know, I agree, something should be done in Miami to revitalize the franchise, but to me, somehow it seems sacrilegious to change it. The ONLY perfect team wore that Logo. I was just a kid then, but I remember the Marino teams as well when they were relevant, and going up against them with Dave Krieg. I just think it would be wrong to do that to a franchise with a proud history like they have.

  • I've never understood why the dolphin wears a helmet with an M on it. It should be wearing a helmet with a dolphin wearing a helmet with a dolphin, etc.

    That said, maybe the new logo should just be the letter M, and the helmet should have a letter M, wearing a helmet with a picture of a dolphin.

    That literally made me laugh for a few minutes. I scrolled down fast and it's almost like the dolphin popped out of nowhere.

    A couple things: I think the new logo looks like an SB Nation Dolphins fansite logo. I do like it. I also like most of the new logos. This current generation dolphins logo is leaps and bounds better than the last one that just looked like the wrinkly last pickle in the jar.

    For those who talk about it not being threatening or fearsome: Is a Dolphin (without a gun) really that threatening?
