Could this be the Miami Dolphins’ new logo? (Picture)
In another week, the Miami Dolphins will head into the offseason looking to continue their rebuilding project. Over the summer, there was some speculation that the team could unveil a new logo for the 2013 season. According to the Dolphins fan site DolFansNYC.com, there is a good chance the image you see above is a very close sketch of what the new logo will look like.
According to the site, Dolphins CEO Mike Dee spike with a group of Dolphins webmasters and told them that the new logo would be a mix of modern and retro and that navy would still be an accent color. Here is how DolFansNYC.com says the photo surfaced:
Fast forward to last Sunday and I was talking to a friend who happens to work with Nike and was bragging about how they had seen the new uniforms and logo. I don’t want to say too much but their job requires seeing new uniforms well in advance of most people. They of course have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and couldn’t tell me anything except that they didn’t love the logo because the Dolphin looked too much like a whale. That seemed like too much of a coincidence and my friend who had showed me the logo happened to be standing right there. He showed my Nike source the photo on his phone and they flipped out. “How did you get that?!” the source asked. Evidently the logo he has had this whole time is “very very close” to the new logo.
For what it’s worth, it has already been rumored that the logo will look something like that of the logo for the old Dolphin stadium, and the photo above is similar to that. But it certainly does look like a whale. Personally, I think they’re taking a step backward if this is the design.
