If they were going to change the logo, that's one of the first that I've seen that I could live with and not want to start a riot. I'd ultimately be disappointed if the helmet was removed from the dolphin though. I also think it's high time we got navy blue out of our color scheme. Go back to the old lighter blue aqua and orange or bust.
All that said, it looks a little new age modern era to me... the type of logo that looks dated in ten years.
