    Dolphins new logo?


    It never did make sense that the Miami logo showed a dolphin wearing a football helmet, when a dolphin is the one NFL mascot that would be suffocated by wearing a helmet. But as part of a rebranding effort to leave behind years upon years of losing—Gloria Estefan! Stadium renovations!—the Dolphins will be introducing new uniforms and a new logo for the 2013 season.

    Last month, the Dolphins held a web weekend for bloggers, and CEO Mike Dee spoke a little bit about the new logo. It would be "a mix of modern and retro," and navy would be an accent color.

    Fast-forward to this past Sunday. DolFansNYC, a site for expat Miami fans, posted a blurry cellphone photo of a potential new design. It's of unknown provenance, but when shown to a friend who works for Nike, that friend confirmed that it was "very very close" to what the final logo will be. And this morning, Paul Lukas of Uni Watch, posted the clean version of the logo that you see above.

    Lukas doesn't know if it's legit, but the fact that he's obtained the same design that DolFans did, presumably from another source, at least points to this being more than a fanmade logo circulating on Facebook. There hasn't been a team logo in recent memory that hasn't "leaked" before its official release date. With the Dolphins season ending in four days, it's almost time to start selling merchandise and season tickets for 2013. Expect a formal unveiling within a few weeks.

    Update: Reader and Dolphins fan Greg, who doesn't care for the leaked logo, finds it a little more palatable when photshopped onto a helmet:

    I actually like it. I saw it on twitter but wasn't sure if it was real or not.

    this logo is probably just one of the choices but from what ive seen on twitter it will look close to something like this.

    I like that stripe in the middle of the dolphin and lesser details on it compared to the current logo. But it looks weird without a helmet or eyes.

    It's definitely more drastic of a change than the Lions or Panthers made. Their logos you could barely tell the difference, but this looks completely changed.

    I think it looks better, but at the same time I can understand the hardcore long time dolphins fans not wanting it to change that drastically.

    I like dolphins. Our patrol boat was surrounded by them as we came out of a dense fog bank one moonlit night off the coast of Morro Bay. I think they were escorting us.

    "Silly humans don't know how to navigate..." Was probably their thought.

    It looks cool, doesn't change the fact that they are still irrelevant. Way better of a change than the Lions, whom only threw in a couple lines on the Lion, thinking that made it look more fierce.

    My Dad has been a life long Dolphins fans and he had a very strong negative reaction when he saw they might be changing the logo. Lets just say he's not a fan of that new logo. I myself think it's decent looking, but I really don't care what other team's logos look like...

    Oh boy, what kind of hideous things is Nike going to do the Dolphins uniform?

    I hate Nike...

    I like the new logo but it looks like an arena football logo to me.

    To me, it looks like the logo of an inn. It's too wide, the tail pointing up does not combine with the helmet. It's a more serious, "corporative" logo. Maybe it would look better with the tail pointing down like in the old logo, matching the curve of the helmet.
