New Fins Logo could be something like this...

The Dolphins have announced they are in talks with the NFL for a new team logo with the goal of it being released to the world in 2013 prior to the 2013 season. My guess is you will see whatever they come up with next April around draft time so the team can start selling the new gear (hats, jersey's...etc) with the rookie draft picks displaying them. The team is claiming it won't be a drastic change with the new logo and the team colors will stay the same. It is rumored that the main difference will be with the actual dolphin itself. The rumor is the dolphin won't have a face, be smiling or wearing a helmet with an "M" on it. What they are saying is they don't like the current logo which is like a cartoon character! The new logo could be something similar to the logo the old Dolphins Stadium had. Where the Dolphin doesn't have a face and its more of an image of a dolphin.


The Dolphins have really only had 2 logos in franchise history. While I agree it might be time to change it up a bit, I hope the organization doesn't go crazy and do something stupid. Changing things up I have no problem with; its been since 1996 the Fins have had its current logo. And in that time span we have seen the worst days in franchise history. We witnessed a 62-7 playoff loss, a revolving door of garbage head coaches, a 1-15 season, Nick Saban (nuff said) and it's been just one kick to the nuts after another. So, I got no problem with changing the logo and hoping to get some good luck with a new look. They have said they aren't changing the colors which is a very good thing and it won't be drastic which is also good.

One thing I hope they consider is changing the helmet color from white to a teal. For me I don't consider that drastic although I realize some might. If they are going to go with a faceless dolphin as their logo, that is fine. But that would have little spice. And to spice things up if they put that logo on a teal helmet with an orange face-mask maybe it might be something that pops.  It's just an idea. I also hope they keep the little "SUN BURST" around the Dolphin. I have always liked that.

Another mock up that has made its way around the internet is this one below. At first I hated this one below when I first saw it, but I got to admit that it is now starting to grow on me a little. It's simple, it's clean, I like the silver/gray helmet look, and its modern yet not crazy modern ugly.

  1. Keep like it is! It isn't about the looks, it's about the play and coaching, oh and most importantly..the MANAGEMENT! The current look is way better than the new ideas i'm seeing. It looks like we're jacking the Miami Marlins look. And i'm sure all the people who are buying the current merchandise will be pissed once they switch it up.

    1. But looks help the management get fans into the stadium every Sunday so the new look helps.

  2. Since '66 the Fins haven't changed the first design so drastically. If they do, being a lifelong fan for almost 42 years it would be sickening. Not that it looks terrible it's more of an old USFL look that's appealing to the newer age, but everything they have been through with the same old design of the dolphin in the sun with that helmet that never gets old, and abandoning it for this. I hope they don't say how the want a more Miami look like the Miami Marlins. We all know how that ended, before it's even over.

  3. Love the idea of the fins changing it up and I really like the new design! Since the latest change in the logo, my memory is clouded with poor seasons with bad quarterback play. I like the way Tannehill is progressing and where the team is headed with Coach Philibin. So why not make a statement now? Perfect time to freshen up the logo and unis. I'm excited in the direction the fins are headed.

  4. LEAVE THE LOGO ALONE AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON THE TEAM!!!! The logo is perfect the way it is and I have to admit, if it gets redone, especially to some artsy-fartsy crap like this then I am done with Miami...

    Spend the millions it would take to create and establish new logos on the stadium, fans, community... ANYTHING but a new logo!!

  6. Stephen Ross needs to go, this is an ugly LOGO. Can they just leave things be, spend more time building the team up.

  7. Well If all you so called fans of the Miami Dolphins would actually go to a game so the owner makes some money he wouldn't have to come up with a new logo to sell hats and jersey's. I have been a dolphin fan my whole life, i can't go to the games because i'm in the army and don't live down there anymore but every game i watch the stadium is empty. I like the new logo, love the team, hate all you so called fans who have an opinion about everything except being a fan of the team and the game.
