Miami Marlins

A new stadium althought not offical looks good for the Marlins and I understand a change to the Miami Marlins would be part of it. The stadium is set to open in 2011 so I assume that is when the name change would take place. Also the Marlins have had the same logo and colors since 1993 and the uniforms have changed only slightly emphasis from teal to black. So would people like to see a complete new look for the team or just keep the same but change Florida to Miami on the road and new hats. Or how about using uniforms simliar to the 1950s minor league team. I believe thoses were blue and orange.

Don't hold your breath.

But lets play the "if" game and say that if there were a change they already have the 'M' logo that would go along with the name change so I don't forsee a major logo overhaul. The only thing that would have to change is the 'FLORIDA' on the away jersey.

I believe somone on the board a while back made a concept of what the Miami wordmark would look like on the caps and away jerseys. But i dont think anything need to be changed but the Florida wordmark. The colors are fine as is.

No they aren't. Too much black and grey, not enough color. Teal is so '90s at this point. I'd welcome a change to either Dolphins' aquamarine, or the new green that the Sharks are using, with some more orange in the scheme as well. They're a Miami team. They should be colorful.

How is "aquamarine" really all that much better than "teal"? Or, the Sharks new "Deep Pacific Teal"?

They're all blue-greens...

I thought the new Sharks' teal was distinctly more green, and aquamarine is brighter. I'm grabbing for straws here. Basically, I want the Marlins to look different.

Wait the Florida Marlins are changing their [city] name and getting a new stadium? I must be out of the loop, when'd all this happen?

Over the past 3 or so years. Its been on again off again. I think the last financing vote was last year. The new stadium is a surprise though. The Miami name change was promised a while back if Miami helped finance a stadium.

It never made sense to name a team after the state instead of the city when there are other teams in that state.

The Marlins were the only team in the state at that time. The Tampa Bay wasn't awarded a franchise until 1995 and didn't begin playing until 1998.

The Marlins won two World Series with thier identity now. Sure, in 1997 that had a little more teal than 2003, but it is still the same identity in which they won thier World Championships. For that reason, I don't want to see the Marlins change. I wouldnt mind seeing a little more orange with the teal and black, or maybe the use of more teal. But dont revamp them. They were one of the teams that came in when I was born, so my whole life existed in the same timespan as the Marlins and I know them by the teal and black and the "fish F". It would me all too akward to me at least if they changed.

And, Tampa Bay plays in St. Petersburg.

The Florida Marlins name was bad from the beginning. Like its really Florida's team. No one in Miami supports the Marlins, let alone the state.

Not sure I understand the point here.

He's one of those guys that thinks a team called "Tampa Bay" should play in Tampa, not knowing that "Tampa Bay" refers to the region as a whole, and not the body of water.

Well, I would not be shocked if the Marlins change their uniforms when or if they get their new stadium.somewhere in Miami. It would be rad if they changed the shade of their teal into blue grey and added some orange around their lettering with a meaner looking Marlin on their logo.(ain't they called the fighting fish?) Their logo looks like a dead Marlin,ready to be hung on the wall. btw, I thought the Marlins were moving to Vegas, if they were forced to relocate from Florida.

Sure, and we could have Pete Rose run a casino inside the stadium.

Back to topic though, I don't see a major change for the Fish, just adding "Miami" to the road script, an M to the cap and replacing Miami instead of Florida on the logo.
