  1. Absolutely! That continues to be my biggest complaint with the new identity (that stayed with the update this year), the wordmark. I know there was a time when Miami had more block lettering, but I'll always prefer cursive for the workmark. Is the above the most aesthetically pleasing? Probably not. But much like the 49ERS with the old west wordmark, this will always say Miami to me. And frankly, that's why I tend to avoid merch with the wordmark these days.
  2. Man, I was really hoping for a thicker orange outline on the helmet and numbers.
  3. What's further interesting is that this video with Walt Aikens seems to feature an updated version of the logo. I'm not talking about the color (it appears to be a standard one color treatment in either white or, coincidentally, grey). But it was the eye that tipped me off first. The pupil appears to be at the back of the eye hole instead of forward facing. And the more I looked at it, the more I noticed subtle differences to the dolphin itself. It appears to be slightly streamlined with fewer lines in total. If this is the direction they are going, it's possible they are making the dolphin only aqua, killing the blue part of the logo to meld in with the aqua, and streamline some of the excess in order to make it just the one color dolphin (plus the white, which I would assume would be the negative space seen on the sign). Again, I'm probably overthinking this. But I've never seen them do an interview in front of a sign/logo like that before. It's curious, though probably nothing.
  4. I've been noticing something on social media and on the http://www.miamidolphins.com/ Lots of that anthracite/grey color. Like, lots. In fact, the website has no blue at all (not that it did in the previous iteration before the site redesign last summer). The Miami Herald did report changes to the logo. I wonder if they would replace the blue with a dark anthracite and call it Miami Storm Grey or something like that. I remember back when this set was introduced, one of the big points was that the white represented the beach, orange the Miami sunset, and the aqua the clear waters. And Mr. Moore did mention a talk with Ross about what Miami is today. They could even use that color as a Color Rush jersey that isn't mocked widely for being very bright (the orange of 2016). Probably conjecture and overthinking, but as a fan with newborns waiting for anything on how things are going to change (yes, I'm a big enough nerd to wait even if all that is changing is the shade of aqua) so that he can buy them gear for the fall. I figured I would toss out a thought to at least facilitate discussion.
