Miami Herald hockey writer George Richards was in Buffalo for a Panthers-Sabers game and he came across the new Marlins hat for sale at a "very reputable" store, depite the fact the team isn't scheduled to unveil their new uniform and log until Nov. 11.

And yes, it looks just like the version we saw leaked last month, seen here:

 

The pictures from Richards make it look black (not navy) and there's definitely an orange hue in there, so the team looks more and more like the Dolphins despite no longer sharing a stadium with the NFL team. The Marlins will move into a new stadium next year (complete with this) and change their name to the Miami Marlins from the Florida Marlins on Nov. 11.

What's with all the ugly uniforms these days? First the Denver Broncos came out with those awful Nike big stripe things in the late 90's. Then the Bengals, Vikings, Seahawks, Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals, Chargers follwed up in recent years with ugly changes. The new college football team uniforms from certain schools look like 1st grade finger painting. I have to agree this new Marlins hat is awful. It looks like some kind of city league hat. The current logo is much better than this new one.

So, if a player's major league career doesn't quite work out with the Marlins, he can at least transition to a role pumping gas with Marathon Oil. That is one ugly hat, if it's indeed the real design.

Uh yeah ... that's pretty ugly. It's almost like something you'd find in a bargain bin because it was stictched with the wrong colors.

What a freaking disgrace. I wouldn't be caught dead in that hat. That would be enough for me to swear off my home team if they came out with something like that.

I'm so glad that I'm not a Marlins fan.  And I'm kind of disappointed that they are in the NL East, which means I will still have to see their ugly uniforms on a regular basis.

The teal was great!  Ok, maybe it's not the coolest color in the world, but it's not the worst.  And it certainly distinguished the Marlins from everyone else.  Now they will look like they are promoting a cruise ship.

Perhaps someone should proofread these articles before posting. It is annoying to have to read it 3 times to figure out what the misspelled words actually mean.

I already know just the people that will be wearing this, labels and all, and not have a clue who it is for.
