I'm surprised there has been no polls posted up lately since the new logo leak was confirmed by Mike Dee. Time to get the general Phinfever consensus, see what you guys think.

I have a very difficult time associating the new logo with football...hopefully time/winning changes that. We'll see. I am siked about the new uniforms though, sick of the dark shade of green.

I like it but I'm curious how it's going to flow on the helmet with the tail up. Those orange uni's with the huge logos on the shoulders in the other thread are horrid.

Currently 67% like it. I bet acceptance will be higher after people adjust, and as long as it is accompanied by wins.

What he said. I didn't think the logo needed to be changed and this seems like it was nothing more than a waste of time and money.

I see the new logo as a new beginning. The period following Shula and Marino has been by far the darkest era in Dolphins history. I think it's good that they're re-branding the franchise, revamping the team, updating the stadium, and just overall putting a fresh coat of paint on everything so to speak. While I think the logo is just ok, I'm thrilled with what it represents.

I agree 100%. I pretty much said the same thing in the other new logo thread.

You could have a "Design the New Phinfever Logo" contest.

Its the most disgusting horrible football logo I have ever seen. It looks like something a 10 yr old would come up with. There was a solid good logo out there. It has the new design dolphin, but the old form.

I only disagree because its not different enough for me. IMO whats the point of making the change if you only intend to slightly alter the old logo?

I hate it because it makes our team look stale and unimaginative. At least we could claim that the old logo was "classic"

They are not re-branding the franchise. They are trying to make money. They cannot get fans to come to the games, because they have been a bad team for years. So the next thing to do instead of building a winner is change the logo to make money that way.

Its a money grab.

Some logo's should never drastically change. Miami's logo is one of them. IMO. They will be once again a laughing stock because of this logo.

After seeing it on the uniform and helmet...I think it rocks. The tee shirt didn't do it justice.

I've been watching them since '70. I like the change and see no reason for it to be a "laughing stock".

I've liked some logo changes in the NFL: Broncos, Jets (before they went back), Bengals. I do not like the Patriots logo change.

To those that don't like it, I say you give it a try. I don't think you have much of a choice except to continue to buy the old merchandise.

BTW, will the old merchandise go on sale now?

:yay:

A new Tannehill jersey with the new logo will be purchased by me the day it is released.

Will not purchase either one. Old is out of date now & new is to embarrassing to wear. If this helmet is going to look that bad, I can only imagine how stupid the uniforms will look.

Bengals did not have a logo. They just had Bengals wrote across their helmet. Liked the Broncos helmets, thought their uniforms were not done very well. The Jets are one I think needs to stay close to the original. Was not a fan of that change either, but did not really care.

For my taste. This is the perfect logo change, if you were going to change it. It updates the Dolphins to a cooler look, but keeps the logo in principal intact.

Here is a pretty good article with a nice interpretation of the new logo from bleacher report.

What do you find terrible? I see the same style design dolphin that they changed to & stay with the traditional style.

There are no pics of the new uni's yet. What he saw was some random concept art.

these other logos have better detailing to them. Our new logo looks incomplete to me. Just a flat design done in illustrator. No line detailing or definition. I was hoping they would come up with something that would rival what the Broncos did.

Which one is the best?

I think the newest one could have been better, but I would pick it over the previous one. I don't want a cartoon character as an emblem. I really liked that 1997 one when it came out, but it was time for a fresh take.

It's already been established that almost every franchise in every sport, and also well know businesses have changed their logos, more than once, and some much more drastically than what the Dolphins have done here.

Image

It's still a Dolphins and a sun. The colors are the same, just going back to a lighter shade, and I love that. They are still very much identifiable as being the Miami Dolphins.

I really like the new sun. The old one looked like a bottle cap.

Looks like we are currently at 50%.

I expect that to change when we see the actual uniforms. That shirt Odrick was wearing looked like crap. Seeing it as a patch on a nice embroidered hat or a jersey may improve opinion. Winning will too.

I have had fans of other teams insult the Dolphin as a mascot many times, and I have always jumped to its defense. Once people start mixing it up with fans of other teams, they might discover a they like it more than they thought.

Like I said , reminds me of the Dolphin from the movie Dolphin Tale. The one with a nub for a tail.

I just keep thinking though of all those really hard core Dolphin fans I see at the games with tattoos of the now old logo. I guess we will probably see a tattoo parlor in the stadium now next to club Liv.

When the Dolphins win the Superbowl, those will be evidence they are not bandwagon jumpers.

I really like our current one the best, but the new one is good, too. I even like the one that Dphins4me likes, too.

I think the new logo is going to look really good on our helmets.
