Since there hasn't been an official PF poll added here yet, here we go. I am shocked that they near completely abandoned the orange...I honestly like our colors from last season better, I loved the orange/white/aqua. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit disappointed, and the white torso on aqua pants is by far the worst color combo they have had. Aqua torso on white pants may not look bad, but the latter...yuck.

IMO these are the words how I describe the new uniforms: Boring, Blah, Plain.

Poor use of all the creativity of newer fresh design looks as surely someone could do better than this. I also don't like the new logo change either. Trying not to sound negative, but that's how I feel.

No pizazz at all.

However, the above being said, winning will make not liking the new uniforms go away.

I honestly don't know what to vote here. I like the white on white uniform, I don't like the aqua on white.

The logo, uniforms, and even the font the Dolphins use have all changed.

Has anyone seen TD lately?

Closer look at the helmets. Man I miss the previous orange colors. This is just too pale for my taste, lacks any pop.

It's too pale, and aside from the sun, it's barely there anywhere else on the jersey. I'm very disappointed.

I am disappointed as well and I predict they will change the design yet again over time. Whoever was the brains behind this lacked creativity in my opinion. Boring style of a look IMO.

Someone mentioned this in a previous thread..........but it's a bit strange the Dolphin is shown in a swimming position with the backdrop of the sun. Of course the original logo showed the Dolphin coming out of the water.......which is logical. That being said, I think Dolphin looks cooler swimming.

I've been wanting a new uniform/logo for almost ten years now. I always found the old logo to be a bit too cute. This new logo comes of as more aggressive and more mature. While it isn't perfect, it's definitely a welcomed improvement. I like it.

According to this poll, most like the new uniforms. I was wondering after seeing a game if they have grown on anyone who didn't like them initially.

I still don't care for them at all .... my friends spent the entire night rippin' on me about them. It's like some bizarre crossbred Aquafresh Storm Trooper. It badly needs the orange from the old uni's to break up the two-tone. The logo is like a dead mammal and the stripe down the helmet should not be blue.

You tell em Rock! Yeah, I like some of it, but again for me, boring with a capital B.....

That logo design is pitiful IMO. Still perplexed that was the BEST the Dolphins marketing department or consulting agency came up with....I predict it will get changed again.

Ugly atrocities best sums up my opinion of them. Washed out blah is another thought. Since we shared a fight song with the Huston Oilers did we decide to share a uniform as well?

Somehow to me they look a lot better in the photographs than they did watching the game live. Maybe it's just me.

We can only hope .....

I'm the same as you though. It amazes me that a creative team can get together, go through all the ideas, and this is what they pump out. Reminds me of some of the crappy car designs out there on the road. I can just imagine them erupting from the design meeting going, "We got a real winner on our hands." LOL

The colors of perfection.

In another note the Dolphins will be sporting a plucky pastel in their fashionable outings this year.

I'm under the impression (now the Dee left) that the logo change and the massive spending this season was all to get the fans in Miami to vote on the stadium improvements....Just my thinking. Sure they wanted to better the team, but I also think the stadium stuff had something to do with it also.

That's hilarious. I remember when someone said they looked like toothpaste (probably you) and all I could think of was Aquafresh from that point. Well played.

I like them, though I'm not nuts about them. I think I like them more because I got so tired of the outdated design we had, than actually liking the direction they went. I think they could have done MUCH better, but I don't hate it.

Ya it was me ... LOL

Every single time I see it, I immediately think of toothpaste. The dead Dolphin logo reminds me of the Aquafresh swirl logo and the color is really reminiscent of Colgate gel I used to borrow from my grandparents when I slept at their house as a kid.

I could not agree more. What the hell did they do with the orange? I love the color combo of aqua and orange. I still can't believe they felt it was right to get rid of it. Insane.

It's there, but they dulled it out completely to look like it did on the helmet in older incarnations of the uni (circa 1974-1989). I mean now you wouldn't even know there was orange anywhere besides the logo, unless you look really hard. At least back in the day when the orange was that color, they made the areas with it large enough so you could notice and it was always more of an orange crush or blood orange .....

Image

Just look at the uni they rocked on Thanksgiving in 2003 when we stomped the Cowgirls in their house (one of my favorite moments as a Dolphins fan) ..... I thought these throwbacks were badass and the orange is what is missing from the uni's now.

Yeah.......... it looks like they bleached the old uniforms. I was ok with the logo change, but I am not a fan of the colors. I'm not going to rush out to buy any new Phins' gear.

At least, it's better than what some of the Pats will be wearing...........

As I had the game on last night my wife looked at the TV and said "when did the Dolphins change to blue?"

I told a buddy of mine when they released the pictures it needed more orange, last night on tv confirmed, the uniform needs more orange. It's just too much Aqua Lite and nothing else. The little bit of orange on the helmet is useless. Unless you are getting sacked by Wake or lining up across the line from Martin you can't see it. Get rid of the dark blue stripe and make it orange and it will be better.

pretty bad but I am confident there will be enough of an outcry for another change in the near future to add to revenue.

I don't hate them, but I don't like them. I wasn't a fan of the pumpkin jerseys, but it could use a little more orange ... maybe some more pizazz. When I saw them Sunday night I was disappointed. The jury is out on the helmets with the new logo for me. I like the logo, but it just seems strange to see it on our helmets. I guess it'll take some time on the helmets for me.

I like the new uniforms, and I really love the lighter shade of aqua, but I must admit, those pics with more orange do look better. As for the emblem, I think more would like it if the tail pointed down.

I think it would have looked better with the tail down, keeping it in line with the past logos.

I don't know what it is about these new uniforms, but I swear that blue color changes every time I see it. Depending on which TV, which computer i see them on, sometimes they look downright royal blue like the old Denver Broncos in the 80s, and then sometimes they look light/powder blue like the Houston Oilers.
The Dolphins must be using cutting edge under armour technology with a hybrid-chameleon fabric. LOL

Regardless I just put an order in for the Teal?Blue (whatever that color is) Ryan Tannehill jersey through a guy at work that gets them for $30.
