NFL Franchise Notes: Dolphins Make Slight Alerations To Uniforms

Some of the alterations made to the Dolphins' jersey are hard for the untrained eye to see

In Miami, Armando Salguero writes the Dolphins' new uniforms take an "evolutionary rather than revolutionary approach." Gone is the deep blue that "was a significant color palette outlining the numbers and helmet strip." That change, which "came with a new logo" in '13, has been "revised to closer resemble the original colors the team wore at its inception" in '66. The orange on the new uniforms is also a "bit bolder in that it is darker" (MIAMI HERALD, 4/20). In Ft. Lauderdale, Omar Kelly notes the alterations are "so subtle they are hard for the untrained eye to notice" (South Florida SUN SENTINEL, 4/20). 

ONE-WAY TICKET: In Atlanta, Tim Tucker reports the Falcons "do not anticipate having any single-game tickets on sale" in '18, given a "limited availability." This would be the second consecutive season the Falcons "haven't put seats on sale to the general public on a single-game basis." Fans who want to purchase single-game tickets "can, of course, do so on the secondary market from resellers" (ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, 4/20). 

FEMININE TOUCH: Bills co-Owner Kim Pegula said she likes to think she and her husband Terry are "really involved" in the vetting and selection of players for the roster, "but not really." Pegula said, "We don't watch film. We're not there at all the games. I personally don't know what I'm watching anyways in terms of that so we let them really make the decisions but we want to be part of the conversation." Pegula said of having more women in positions of power on team and league levels: "We all bring different ideas, different backgrounds, just different experiences and I think that we can be a part of that conversation. It would definitely help the league moving forward" ("NFL Total Access," NFL Network, 4/18).
