Dolphins Undecided About Using NFL's New Blackout Rule, But Pushing For No Blackouts
Published July 13, 2012
MAKING A SPLASH: The PALM BEACH POST's Volin reported the Dolphins are “already well into discussions with the league about a fresh new look for next season.” A league source said that the team and the NFL “have been trading emails for several weeks, with various mock-ups of a new Dolphins logo being designed and tweaked by the two sides.” Dee on Thursday said, “It’s not 100 percent that we’re going to make a change.” But he added that the team “has gotten feedback from the fans and is looking to ‘freshen up’ the logo, which has been in its current form since 1997.” The Dolphins “tweaked the original 1966 logo significantly in 1997 but kept many of the traditional elements.” Dee said that the team is “looking to do the same this time.” The Dolphins have “until November to submit a new logo to the league office for the 2013 season.” Dee: “It’s not going to be like when Tampa Bay changed from orange to pewter gray” (PALMBEACHPOST.com, 7/12).
