It's a dolphin, wearing a helmet, while grimacing. I honestly don't know what's the dumbest thing here.

The fact that Flipper is angry and grimacing is sad and sorrowful. I'm sorry guys, but you've made the decision to have the friendliest-appearing waterdwelling mammal your mascot. You can't "scary-up" a dolphin any more than you can Snuggles the Bear. Giving him the browline of a neanderthal and a smirky frown makes him more of a plush toy than a football mascot.

How in the name of anything sacred is he wearing a helmet? That's a human's helmet. It doesn't even fit the animal's elongated skull. If we're going to pretend there's a football-playing porpoise, can we not also pretend there's adequate gear so he doesn't get obliterated on his first punt return? Good god, the guy doesn't even have arms and you're sending him out on the gridiron with a helmet that doesn't fit. It's like you want him endangered. His(?) entire forehead is exposed for contact.

The helmet itself is an atrocity. It's an orange "M"? Whose team features a big orange "M" on the helmet? NOBODY'S. Why not give him the helmet that the Dolphins actually wear. It could even create a Russian Dolls effect where the dolphin in the dolphin's helmet has a dolphin in his helmet which has a dolphin in his helmet. This is a masterpiece waiting to be constructed and your laziness is stupefying.

Listen, the team can do however they want. So they've got an undefeated team. They had one of the best QBs the game's ever seen. Yet all you get is a reel of grainy highlights that features your beloved Dolphins sashaying all over the field in one of history's sorriest mistakes, a piece of equipment lacking in even one sensible artistic detail, a symbol that compares your fierce heroes on the gridiron to frowning fish.

I'm surprised Goddell hasn't been on top of this. The Dolphins should resign from the league and start over with a new franchise in 5 years with a new mascot. I know they have to keep things Miami-themed, but virtually anything would be better. Knowing these guys they'd be the Miami Super Suns and have the cartoon sun from Raisin Bran on their helmet, wearing shades.

They make me sick, Dolphins. They should be ashamed of yourselves.

I've never had a problem with it.

What about the Browns- it looks like a moose took a giant turd on their helmet.

And what's with the Steelers? You'd think they'd be able to afford to match the other side of the helmet now? :shrug:

It's about the lamest excuse for a mascot in the NFL. Who is supposed to be afraid of seeing flipper on a helmet wearing pastel colors. The 'phins are teh ghey.

The thing I've always wondered about is the Cards. When St. Louis moved the Cardinals to Arizona they simply kept the franchise name and logo. Like there's any cardinals in the freakin' Arizona desert. :shake:

Why didn't they just change it to some desert denizen?

They are the miami dolphins... would you expect them to have a b2 bomber on thier helmet?

They could have chosen a manatee instead of a dolphin. So, it could be worse.

I do like it as well....I was only kidding 'cause if you knew the history, the fact is, they could only afford to put a single logo on the helmet when they came into the league.

So it would be like... INFINITY?!?!?!

Funny thing is, now that they have Tuna as their GM, maybe they can change their mascot to a tuna fish sandwich? :shrug:

I think the Steelers have the coolest and most unique helmets in the nfl.They do now. But that title belonged previously to the Houston Oilers. By far.

Nah - I don't like the Cowboys but their logo is simplistic, indicative of the region, and good colors. In fact, it's two of my very favorite colors.

They have been flopping all over the place, like a fish out of water. The Dolphin is p.o.ed because they do not stick to one plan or coach more than 2 years

The Minnesota Lakers moved to L.A. where the are no lakes. The Jazz moved to Utah, where they don't allow music.
