Miami Dolphins communicating with NFL headquarters about a logo change for 2013
by Ben Volin

Last month, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross mentioned that he is interested in changing the team’s logo and uniforms, perhaps as soon as the 2013 season.

As it turns out, the Dolphins are already well into discussions with the league about a fresh new look for next season. A source at league headquarters told the Post that the Dolphins and NFL have been trading emails for several weeks, with various mock-ups of a new Dolphins logo being designed and tweaked by the two sides.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said Thursday night that “it’s not 100 percent that we’re going to make a change,” but that the team has gotten feedback from the fans and is looking to “freshen up” the logo, which has been in its current form since 1997.

The Dolphins tweaked the original 1966 logo significantly in 1997 but kept many of the traditional elements, and Dee said the team is looking to do the same this time. The Dolphins have until November to submit a new logo to the league office for the 2013 season.

“We’re not talking about changing colors or taking the sun off the helmet. It’s not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray,” he said. “It’s definitely keeping one eye on what’s traditional in the logo intact, while keeping one eye on a 21st century version of that.”

Well, at first I thought why change? Then I realized this team has won 4 playoff games since making the change. FOUR. We have more losing seasons than that. I don't know what to change it to, but man we have not done well with this new logo. Not that an aging Marino/no Marino/no Shula had anything to do with it....

Transparent money grab.

Ross still has no idea what the fans want.

Nah. I'm not feeling it either.


Here is a logo that someone put together a couple years ago. I think it was Nike that was playing around with the idea of new uniforms.

And someone created this years ago:

This team needs to retrace it roots, and become the team we once were.

In the first 30 years we made the post season 20 times, won 13 Div championships, 5 conference titles and 2 super bowls.
We were one of the most winning teams for 30 years....

There is a history and tradition in Miami, the foundation of a winning franchise was here.
That was the one thing I loved about Sparano, he preached pride in this teams history.

Change the logo? Red carpet?
PFFFFT

WIN!!!!!

part of me thinks that you have to keep the dolphin logo pretty much the same with the sun and wearing a helmet... maybe changing the color scheme, and using more orange and navy in the jerseys/helmet or something might be cool

Bring back these!! Old school, low key, SHARP! None of that lame butt navy blue drop shadow. I especially love the orange trim and the gray facemasks...

I say we bring in the biting Dolphin from Louisiana

Quote:
Dastardly Dolphin Bites Neighbors: An aggressive male dolphin, stranded in a Louisiana lake, has been taking a culinary tour of his neighbors by biting them, reports ABCNews.com. The dolphin has bitten three swimmers so far, and more attacks are expected to follow as boaters on Lake Pontchartrain continue to try to touch the animal.

Keep the original logo & try to get back to as many of us has pointed out to Dolphin Tradition. The orange carpet , celebrity owners clearly has backfired & changing the logo goes along with those "21st century ideas".
I say we have a temporary change. I just took my kids to see that Dolphin from the movie Dolphins Tale , the one who had to have her tail amputated & now has a prosthetic tail. We should have a logo of a wounded Dolphin just like her because that is what we have become. A Dolphin with a stump for a tail! And maybe just like her we can eventually make a miraculous comeback , then we change the logo back to the original design.

If they're going to do it I hope they do something along the lines of what the Falcons and Lions did. Take the old logo and colors and just modernize it. Nothing drastic, just bring things up to date.

Dave, I really like the uniform look you posted. Futuristic look that projects really sharp too!

I understand tradition, but those are some cool looking uni's.

I really hope they dont make a drastic change to the logo. I love the current logo.

If they do change it, I wouldn't mind one of these. Both are fan concepts that I have seen on a logo forum that I belong to.
