The more I see it the more the potential new logo grows on me, to the extent that our current one now looks old, cartoonish and just plain dumb. I would go further and dump the helmet stripes and simply have a white helmet and faceguard. The result would be much cleaner and classic looking as the new logo is longer and the stripes would detract from the new look making the helmet too "busy" looking.
Look at the Bucs and Pats who dumped the helmet stripes when they revamped, too me it looks much sleeker and modern.
I also think that the uniforms should be modernised and instead of the stale white on white the uniform should be tweaked to a light dolphin grey colour muchlike the Seahawks "wolf grey" uniform. A new-logo'd clean white non-striped helmet with bottlenose grey uniforms would look stunning in my opinion and represent a true revamp/modernisation of our look and identity. The aqua shirts would remain for night games or as our away uniform, perhaps all-aqua like against the Bears a few seasons ago.
This mock-up for me (grey uni on the left albeit ideally a lighter shade) incoporating the new logo is how I think we should look in 2013
And here is a (real rough!) image of my proposed helmet...its a Longhorns helmet that I crudely photoshopped but you get the idea.
The grey uniforms would make us look less soft but retain enough characteristics to retain our identity but allow for a new and hopefully successful next chapter.

jeff Ireland has not done a good job in his role as GM over his 5 years he is the main ingredient in our current series of non winning seasons, the longest since our team's initial inception. So how have I jumped around in my opinion of him.
Sorry man, I just can't get into the potential new logo. It's just really really bad. Give me the current logo any day over that.
Guys. stop being self-endulgent and making new threads about this.
There are already 3-4 worth posting in.
The Dolphins should just buy rights to use the Finsheaven.com logo. Now that logo is lean and mean.
This was a trial balloon leak by the Dolphins...
Just want to point out something: the logo is decided. It HAS to be because the dolphins already had to have submitted their new logo to the nfl by now.
Frankly, the silence and lack of denials are telling...that's the new logo.
I, for one, am happy. I know I'm in the minority.
