Earlier in the day, we told you about how NFL.com might have accidentally leaked the new Miami Dolphins logo.
The website eventually removed the logo and replaced it with the old one.
But, then on Wednesday afternoon, a seemingly befuddled Dolphins CEO Mike Dee confirmed that, yes, the logo that appeared on NFL.com is indeed the new Miami Dolphins logo.
And, judging from fan reaction on Twitter, a few like it.
But most pretty much hate it.
Except Dan Marino. He approves.

New Miami Dolphins logo looks like a "Dolphin Safe" label on a can of tuna. Our Dolphins are safe. From the playoffs! instantrimshot.com

Based on pattern, seems new logo is no longer based on a bottlenose dolphin but a common dolphin. The one rarely seen and no one cares about

I wasn't planning to buy merchandise anyways. I'm on a Dolphin spending lockout til they make a playoff game. Still hate the new logo.
