  1. There is no requirement to have a Color Rush...teams are allowed to have two alternates, as long as one of them is an official throwback.
  2. They don't and they wont. Why have only one identity to market when you can have two? Classic gear for us old farts, and the modern look for those too young to know who Don Shula even is....
  3. Here's the last time these were worn, Thanksgiving Day 2003 at Dallas... https://www.facebook.com/MiamiDolphinsZone13/videos/836909449800549/
  4. Believe it or not, these are both from the 1972 season...the top being from Super Bowl VII. In 1970 and '71 the Dolphins wore stripeless jerseys, in 1972 they introduced those shown in the bottom photo, with striping and a thin number font. However, many players didn't like the fit and went back the the older jerseys, causing both styles to be on the field at the same time...which is what you see in the top photo. In 1973 new jerseys were again introduced with striping and thicker numbers, which became the standard jersey thru 1986...
  5. Hoping the Bears take a look at their past when wearing their orange alt jerseys this season...navy pants would give it a nice symmetrical look.
  6. The late Frank Robinson in his first spring training with the Orioles (1966), wearing the old uni they changed by the start of the season...
  7. Yes, which only started with the next-to-last regular season game in Baltimore...most lineman and linebackers switched to the "out of the sun" logo, which became the official logo in 1974.
  8. No sleeve striping at all on the 1970-71 sets, which is actually the closest relative to our current uni...
  9. I think (at least some in) the Dolphins organization likes to double-dip the way it is now...throwbacks for fans who prefer those, and a modern uniform for the rest. Maximizes their marketability.
  10. Of course aesthetically that would be nice, but it REALLY emphasizes the empty seats on tv...even when it's just a couple of thousand, it looks like more....
  11. That would be the league's call, not the Dolphins, so no way....
  12. Of course they're wonderful, but I wish we'd adopt the one style change that was made in 1967 and lasted thru our glory years, the pant striping became orange-aqua-orange....
