I could live with logos 1 or 6, but the rest are vomit-inducing to me. I give credit to the creators for their obvious artistic talents, especially considering that I have trouble drawing stick figures, but those just aren't the logos I want to see anywhere near a Dolphin helmet. Yuck.

what is the fascination with cutting the Dolphin's tale off? logos 1, 2, 4, 7 & 8 all have the tale removed. is that some sort of tribute to the Japanese practice of finning Dolphins for medicinal purposes?

Max's logo avatar isn't a bad design...since the Fins are redesigning their logo.

Also, 1 isn't bad....and 7 is tolerable.

I love change if the change is meaningful, and positive. As another poster mentioned, our logo is iconic. The Raiders, Cowboys, Steelers, Packers, Giants, Browns, and Colts, never felt the need to change. Branding is important. An identity is important. Even with the last decade of ineptness, people like the current logo. Yes, some question that a Dolphin isn't intimidating, but even with a logo change a Dolphin still wont be regardless of how they design it.

There is something to be said for tradition, and staying the course. To me, I think Ross just wants his own personal stamp on the team. Much like the whole fight song dilemma.

With that said, I would not be opposed to a little freshening of the logo, but it should remain as it is from a design standpoint. The uniforms that were posted in this thread earlier look fantastic, and I certainly would not be opposed to those.

That's just my 2c. I fully expect a complete redesign.

What's so intimidating about the letter "C"? Nothing, except when you wake from a hit by a Bear defensive player. Leave the logo.

1 is okay, and so is 7, which I could've sworn I've seen before.

I have no idea what #3 is even supposed to be :shock:

#10: The word "FINS" on the helmet??? Really??? :roll:

All in all I'd have to say 7's my preference of the choices here.

Doesn't mean this will be our new logo. Just some crap some guy designed. It looks like a souped up carbon fiber import car. Yuck.
