Ok, so as I said I will be doing a new PS3 Dolphins theme. I plan on keeping quite a few of the old backgrounds I used before, but I do plan on taking some out an replacing them. Two ideas I plan on using is Brandon Marshall (Duh!) and the 2010 schedule. And I also plan on useing the same icon set as well.

What I would like help with is new ideas for backgrounds. Things like players, stadium usage, coaches etc., etc. I am open to any good ideas. So lets hear what ideas everyone has.

EDIT: If you happen to have pictures of players, please post high res pics. The bigger the better.

On the old design you had a pic of the team in the tunnel, now if you could get one of them all in the orange jerseys that would cool. also, maybe a pic of the orange bowl or a background consisting of all the fins that are in the hall of fame, maybe not actual photos but of the statues.

Intresting idea. That could look good if I do it right. I would assume the Orange Bowl because most of the Hall of Famers played there before the current stadium was built?

Moreso that the Orange Bowl was iconic in the city of Miami. The Orange Bowl was just a magical place in the 1980's and Hurricane football was an escape from all of the rioting, etc. The Dolphins were a big part of the Orange Bowl as well but there was just something about that stadium on a saturday night in the West End Zone when the smoke hit. Great times. Can't believe they tore it down. Broke my heart.

more of the heritage thing, like you had with the old logos, since it isn't with us anymore. maybe its too much considering most of the people who use ps3 are of a younger generation. I was thinking you had seperate images of ricky and ronnie, maybe you can get a pick with both of them in it. something like this

If you plan on doing anything retro I can suggest three greats that aren't too far in the past for younger fans to relate to. Coach Shula a legend....Dan Marino, our biggest franchise player ever and our newly retired Zach Thomas with the heart of a lion. I love the orange bowl idea as well for the Shula era teams including Marino. Marshall as well is a must....this season can get here soon enough. I hope everything finally falls into place for South Fla. Thanks for the sig again...Awesome work!

So here is the Brandon Marshall wallpaper that will be used in the theme. A lot of the original wallpapers from the first theme will be returning. Including a modified version of my 2010 schedule wallpapers and the Ricky Williams on the moon I just recently did for another member.

As for the the idea of Dolphins legends, I really like the idea. Unless I can find a really cool image of the the current stadium, I won't used the Orange Bowl pic. But if I can, I am going to have the Orange Bowl fade into the current stadium. As for players to use, I liked both ideas. But I think I will include a lot of older players as well as current ones that have left. The way I see it is even if the younger crows might know the name, it will perk enough interest to go look it up. So beside Marion, Shula, Thomas, and Csonka who else could I use? I figure I can fit quite a few players on the wallpaper because the older the player, the smaller the picture is going to be. You have to remember no high def cameras back then.

Pick of Cameron Wake would be dope...Vontae Davis giving the shish sign to the crowd..

Ronnie taking a WC snap... Sporano punching air Lol...

Hartline catch in endzone against Pats...

Bess had a couple of rediculous catches during the year...one was in the Titans game..I wanan say one was in the Pats game..

I was hoping that you would make a new one for this season. I love the old one but I hate looking at JT's face right now.

Ok. So I am now working on the Dolphins Legends wallpaper. I gota good pic of Marino, Shula and Thomas. I would like a suggestions for 2 more "modern" players. I am going to use Larry Csonka for the other classic player, but if anyone can supply me with a better picture of Csonka it would help out a lot. The one I have I had to cut in half because of a water mark on the picture.

How is this coming along? The last one was the best theme I've ever had.
