Miami Dolphins 2013 Uniforms **UPDATE**

The Miami Dolphins introduced a new logo several weeks back and a loud roar of angry Phin fans was heard throughout the NFL on social media sites as people were very upset about the new logo. I was one of those upset by the logo as I felt it was too "happy" and not fierce enough compared to their previous logo.

Upon releasing the logo, the team announced that on April 25th, 2013 they would introduce their fans to the new uniforms. Well, thanks to some kind people out in the world, the new uniforms have been leaked. Thankfully, the uniforms are not as bad as the Jacksonville Jaguars set, but they are not an improvement over last years set either.

Today Nike released the new Dolphins uniforms to the public and I honestly say that I am rather disappointed. The team introduced the white uniform which means the aqua will only be used 1 or 2 times a year and that is a shame. The white uniform is bland, boring, plain and more importantly a downgrade from their previous set. I HATE the new orange color as they not only change from Coral to Orange, but they made it less relevant in the uniform. The stripes are awful compares to their last set and the white facemask is not aqua.

The main reason I do not love this new uniform is because of the changes made to the colors of the Dolphins. The new aqua shade is not very good and they removed the navy and replaced it with blue. Thanks to my friend ColorWerx he has provided the differences between the colors from last year to this year.

Minnesota Vikings 2013 Uniforms **UPDATE**

The Vikings uniforms have officially leaked and I could not be happier. I was a fan of the old uniform and I was a nervous wreck worried about Nike messing up this current uniform by adding unneeded gray to the set. However, I am proud to say that this uniform was knocked out of the park and is simply AMAZING! Now the grade below is based off of the leaked pictures and may change depending on when clearer pictures are released, but I don't really see this uniform set going downhill from here.

Today Nike unveiled the official 2013 Vikings uniform and the set is better than I initially thought. The stripes are in a shape of a sail as are the fonts on the numbers and players name. I was initially thinking the facemask was purple which I scored as perfect, but that score will drop some as the facemask is black. However, black is better than grey so I don't expect that much of a drop.

Old Helmet vs New Helmet

New Uniforms

Jacksonville Jaguars

Today at 1:30pm the Jacksonville Jaguars will be introducing their new football uniforms from Nike. There is excitement in the city of Jacksonville as the team now has a new owner, a new look and hopefully a winning attitude. The look is supposedly going to be based off of a military theme and will be a modern look which means that anything is liable to happen since Nike does a lot of stupid things with football uniforms.

West Virginia Moutaineers

Today West Virginia introduced their new uniforms for the 2013 season. I would like to say that I love the set, but I cannot because there are a few things that I hate on a football uniform (gray facemasks and plain pants) and this set has the latter. In addition, for some odd reason they added black to the blue uniform which makes no sense whatsoever. Here is a video of the uniforms and the below are pictures.

Oregon State Beavers Update

Some better pictures were released today regarding Oregon State's new uniforms. Upon seeing these new pictures, I will say that I like the uniforms much more now, even though I still hate the orange chrome helmet.

UConn Huskies

The Connecticut Huskies recently update their logo and now they have released their new football uniforms. However, the template is the same, but it appears that they have just cleaned up the look. In addition, that have added two new helmets and I have mixed reviews on them because they are plain on the sides and for me that does not cut it.
