    Maybe I'll come round to liking it, I guess I just don't like change.

    I'm also interested in seeing how it looks in combination with the new uniforms. They might actually enhance each other.

    It looks like a beached dolphin laying on its side...not one flying through the air. Appropriate i guess.

    Personally, I truly believe they expected a lot of negative feedback anyway. They had to figure a large amount of fans would be resistant to change, and of the remainder, some would like it and some wouldn't, and that many who didn't would grow to appreciate it over time.

    I'm sure they also may have looked back at when the logo was changed back in 97 to get an idea of what to expect from fan feedback. From what I recall it also had its share of detractors complaining about the cartoon look and the inclusion of navy blue, etc., although this era of social media makes the feedback of this new logo that much more prominent. It also wouldn't shock me in the least if fans in such places as Denver and New England truly hated the changes made to their logos in the past.

    To me, it looks like it's swimming rather than jumping.

    I googled "dolphins attacking" and clicked "images".....pretty cool to see the new proposed logo has the dolphins in a "feeding/attacking" pose as opposed to a "take a picture I am jumping at sea world" pose.

    I can dig that.

    Our team doesn't give us much else to talk about, unfortunately.

    Yeah really, its not like we're Patriots fans who get to talk about whether they'll get a first round bye in the playoffs and if they'll win the division by 5 or 3 games. :cry:

    We're stuck with talking about a logo and when the team will ever have another winning season/win a playoff game.

    I like it...sort of...io feel the dolphin is a little too long, and the flipper looks too big in relation to the head.

    No not everyone. I can't stand it. I just hate everything about it. I would really like to change everything about it. Go away from the "retro".

    I'm not on board with it either. I think it's too drastic of a change.

    There ar so many good designers, even on simple message boards. There are knock off t shirts at flea markets designed better. In this day and age, there is no reason not to create something awesome.

    If we can't do something awesome with an actual dolphin, then maybe we need to move into a new direction. Spell Miami, or M. Hell, just slap a cool fonted 72 on the side.

    There's no reason it can't be better.

    We should go back in time....to a time when we were relevant, not some run of the mill franchise. We used to be a flagship.

    Like I've said multiple times, I'm MUCH more concerned about what we do with the uniforms. That is the "make or break" for me.

    Not on board with it. It's not even close enough of an improvement on past logos to justify a change.

    I think the dolphin needs to be a slash or a blur, like the stadium logo...like a shooting bullet through the sunburst, donned in our colors. More Picasso that actual.

    Or do a cool fonted MD. Thick, in our team colors. Maybe with silhouettes of the city scape and palm trees, and/or faded dolphins within the letters.

    Looking at the pic of the logo as it would appear on the helmet, I like that the Dolphin appears to be headed towards the end zone. After the past few years I think the players should take any type of compass they can get. :D

    A few things to note:

    1. Navy is going to be in the new logo & uniforms. Deal with it & get over it. It's in the new stadium logo, and in the leaked logo. It's here to stay...

    2. There will ALWAYS be a backlash/protest when a new logo is revealed. I live in Colorado, and when the Denver Broncos updated their logo in 1997 (from the old "D" to the new "horse head"), and they also changed a team COLOR (from royal blue to navy blue). 99% of fans HATED it when it came out. Now, 99% of fans LOVE it.

    So, go ahead and complain.
    In a year, or 3 or 5, you will come around.

    Exactly. The same holds true for the Pats and Lions as well.
