    Quick Question, sorry if it's a dumb question

    Just a quick question, with all the Ricky news lately this is probably the last thing on your minds but

    Why are the Dolphins so fond of their White uniforms, I believe they wore them in just about every game this season except for the one vs. Tampa Bay.

    I know wearing white gives you a supposed advantage in that if reflects sunlight rather than absorbs it..but Do they hate the teals that much?

    Again I apoligize if this is an insanely stupid topic but it's just something that was on my mind and I needed to know lol.

    Nick likes to be able to see the dirt on the uniforms so he can tell who is giving the most effort :wink:

    It's all about the heat factor. They did a test on the sidelines once between the dolphins white and the raiders black and the difference was 20+ degrees.

    It's funny that you mention this. But I had only found out recently that white is considered their home colors. I've been a dolfan for almost a decade but I had always thought that the Teal was but lo and behold, White is their home colors. I had ignored the fact that I watched almost every game, Alot of the pics had them in the whites, and many people wore the white to the games. I think I had always based it on Madden Football video games where they are teal. Though even in the opening of the game, all dolphin players are wearing white. For me this is the biggest thing I have found out about the fins for the last 2 years. I told everyone that I could.

    As for why, I think that you are right, white is cooler to play in. Plus when they travel, it's usually to a colder place, therefore the teal can come out. I think it's very intelligent.

    Honestly, I am alone in saying this, but I kinda wish that their alternate color of orange was their home color. Just my 2 cents.

    That's exactly right. it's part of the home field advantage if you can keep your team cooler than the other team.



    Thanks to Crunchtime for the Banners.

    The Dolphins are always the cooler team on the field :cooldude:

    and Mr. Dolfan I agree the Orange unis are pimp! too bad we only get to see those during primetime night games.

    Thanks for the replies everyone
