    Best Helmet / Logo I have seen

    I know we have a lot of threads regarding what our new logo and helmet may look like, but this one really looks nice, so I thought I would share.

    I have a feeling the Dolphins are going for a more retro classic look. As much as people like this logo, it doesn't fit that vision. It is too modern, arena league for that.

    An update like the Lions (nothing radical but more 21st century) will be a nice change. The jest & bills can keep their *back to the future* approach.

    p.s. your avatar isn't exactly retro classic.

    I don't have that feeling. In fact, I'd be shocked. Everything recently in terms of uniforms and logos has catered to the younger crowd and its zeal for darker and more complicated. Phenomenal logos like the Colts, Vikings, Chiefs and Bears would never make it beyond the first cut these days. Hell, they'd never be contemplated.

    The more Nike is involved, the lower the opportunity for retro and classic. They'll start slow by necessity and then pounce, like an aspiring mass murderer who manages a good first impression when escorted home by your swooning daughter.

    The dark stripes down the middle of the helmet are ghastly, with a USFL or even XFL impression. That's the last thing we need. Likewise the loud facemask.

    Early '70s was our best look, IMO. The shade of aqua in those years was tremendous. I didn't really hate anything until we adopted light aqua pants, which simply look cheap. Then it got ridiculous with all orange jerseys. And the familiar desperation to look tough.

    Let's see, we're content to play in a cement wasteland in an irrelevant area, the closest thing to a home/neutral site in perhaps the history of the league, with spectators practically in a different county, yet we're convinced that a fierce looking logo is the solution.

    Somebody in this thread mentioned the Carolina Panthers. That's a good example. Logos really started declining in about that era, mid '90s. Carolina and Jacksonville were overdone. Jacksonville's is actually more complicated and much worse than Carolina's.

    looks like an arena football league helmet.

    anyways, give it a rest with these fan made logo's. you're only going to get your hopes up. they already confirmed that the shape of the dolphin is changing and no helmet. any logo you see that isn't like that, isn't it.

    Did this really need another thread of its own?

    You can only talk about whether we should win or lose against the Pats, or re-sign Jake Long for so long.
