Other teams have throwback uniforms alongside their normal ones.  If you like the throwback, then buy that.


Bingo.  We have an answer.  In new england you will see some people wearing the flying elvis and others wearing patriots pat.  It is not uncommon to see some folks even wearing one logo on their hat an the other on a sweatshirt.

Not Bingo because people in New England don't hate the current uniform. Joe Rose opened his show by talking about how bad the current uniforms are and many national talking heads brought up how good the throw backs look compared to the current. While there are people who like the new ones like Spider, most people find them atrocious just like the Steelers throw backs.

"Everyone" also thinks the Chargers' powder blue throwbacks look better than their navy regulars.  The Chargers' solution has been to sell both.  Why should the Dolphins do any differently?

If you want to say the regular uniforms should change colors, I'm fine with that.  I actually liked the previous aqua/navy/orange more than the current light aqua/dark aqua/orange; my navy Zach Thomas jersey is one of my favorites.  But the old logo is objectively terrible and should stay in the history books.

^^^ when it first came out most people hated the flying elvis.  And I still do.  I have never bought anything with the new logo,but will wear gifts with it.  The flying Elvis is popular now but it has been the logo for 20 years and 5 Lombardis

I also like the jerseys from 97 better than the throwbacks we are wearing but both are heads and shoulders above the current IMO.

I think the Pats (especially the flying Elvis) is one of the better unis in the league.  I hated Patriot Pete hiking the football, though.

Your new stuff looks so much better, to an outsider.

+1.  I think most fans feel this way.  How about a poll??

Pat Patriot is a terrible logo and the Flying Elvis is a huge upgrade.

I actually like the Parcells-era NE uniforms:




I've also said in the past that I think the current Bills kit is one of the best in the league.

It's really just the Jets that are perpetual trash.

Yes ... I don't know how you could make that shade of green look good. They need to add some colors and change the shade.

I just wish that the look of their uniforms was the biggest problem that the Dolphins have.   Grin
