No, I'm not talking about the players & coaches here... We already know about the Suck for Luck-2012 and the need for a new Coach.
I'm talking about UNIFORMS. Like most fans, I have some Dolphins gear. But the horrible Aqua and Orange colors do not look menacing, and they make me look like more of a clown than a fan. Honestly, the only ones looking good in the Aqua/Orange are the Cheerleaders... but they'd probably look good in anything... or nothing. I digress.
I did a quick rundown of some teams that did recent uniform changes:
Broncos: change in 1997 - Superbowl wins in 1998 and 1999
Seahawks: change in 2002 - Superbowl appearance in 2006
Bucs: change in 1998 - Superbowl appearance in 2003
Pats: change in 1996 - Need I even say anything here?
OK, so there are probably more important factors than uniform changes... But at this point, I think this team needs a new identity. The owner is finally getting serious about building a team, instead of trying to patch it up. So why not change the look too?
We've done the fun little snowflake jumping through the hoop on the helmet thing. As fans we've suffered for years trying to figure out how to make an orange and green hat look cool. Its time for a change!!!
So, I'm asking the fans here, to come up with some new ideas. If anyone has extra time and is good at photoshop, then I'd ask that you create some prototypes. If I get some free time I may make a couple myself. Have some fun with it, and lets see what we can come up with.
Personally, I'd like to see the team move towards a more menacing Dolphin, and change up the colors to a Blue-Grey and White.
Thanks for reading,
