Dolphins Looking at a Refresh?
Per Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post:
The Dolphins are already well into discussions with the league about a fresh new look for next season. A source at league headquarters told the Post that the Dolphins and NFL have been trading emails for several weeks, with various mock-ups of a new Dolphins logo being designed and tweaked by the two sides.
It’ll be very interesting to see where this goes. It would be nice to see something a little more fierce, but not a total departure from the past (and something FAR from the Marlins atrocity). Says CEO Mike Dee:
“We’re not talking about changing colors or taking the sun off the helmet. It’s not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray,” Dee said. “It’s definitely keeping one eye on what’s traditional in the logo intact, while keeping one eye on a 21st century version of that.”
Dee also said that “it’s not 100% [they] will make a change”, and that most fan feedback has been to “freshen up” the logo. We’ll keep you posted as we find out more.
