I thought Mark Chipmans explanation was pretty lame, but I am just so elated that We got The JETS back, finally, that "who cares?" about a Logo with a Jet on it!! It just doesn't matter!

Flying the Jets logo won't just bolster the team -- the new brand will also boost military families.

In recognition of the military giving its blessing on the Royal Canadian Air Force-inspired logo, True North Sports and Entertainment commited $1 million over 10 years to military charities, including the Military Family Fund and the Air Force Heritage Fund, 17 Wing's commanding officer said.

Speaking to the media at 17 Wing's NORAD building on Saturday, the new commanding officer, Maj. Gen. Alain Parent, said the commitment, and the use of the RCAF roundel in the Jets logo, was a "win-win situation."

"We feel that Canadians really appreciate their military right now," Parent said. "We really enjoy this. It's something we don't take for granted."

Parent noted that the military met with TNSE to hammer out an agreement, and ensure the company and its team would do the RCAF imagery proud. Decisions on use of military imagery are made on a "case-by-case basis," Parent added.

In the end, Mark Chipman's vision passed with flying colours. "A hockey player has to be fast, agile, fit and a team player," Parent said. "These are all characteristics of the men and women of the Canadian air force."
Mark Chipman et al are class acts. Great ambassadors to Winnipeg.

I'm warming up to the logo....slowly....
I like the colours chosen. (the air force blues do look really sharp)

So slowly in fact I bought my first new Jet's hat in 10 years on Saturday! Only had to wait in line behind 12 people @ River City Sports in St. V.

Don't know why all these peeps would want to wait in line downtown at MTS Centre when the exact same stuff, exact same price can be had with little-to-no line elsewhere. Oh well.

I like the secondary logo that GOM has as his Avatar much better. Hopefully like DeanK says, they'll make an adjustment in the next few years, as many other teams have done so. But if they don't, this one will do just fine.

Like many others have said elsewhere, I'm just really glad it's not a cartoon!

Anyone else see anyone wearing Jets gear? I've been wearing my hat @ lunch downtown and all over the place after work all week....so far I've seen one whole t-shirt.

Don't tell me it's all gone to collectors who are going to box it for 10-20 years...

I like the maple leaf in the logo, it looks much better than what other teams (like Calgary for example) have done to retro-fit their jerseys to stick a flag on it....our way looks much less lame. Much like the Blue Jay's have a leaf in their logo.

Maybe once the Jets morph into a real powerhouse team in a few years we can tweak the logo to add some armaments. Until then, (especially with Antropov on the team) I think it's better to remain stealthy before boasting. lol!

I love it! Some complainers could stand to learn a little history, methinks.

Great tribute, great look!

ok, over the weekend I saw a few more. It's nice to see. Smile

Anyone know who the old PA announce was for the Jets...back @ the old barn? Know if he's still around or moved on? ...just curious. I grew up listening to him call out the Jets goals and it still gives me shivers.

Frost? Bilcq? Now that you mention it I don't recall. I just know that there is an old Winnipeg radio broadcaster doing the PA at Leafs games.

That's Andy Frost in Toronto.

I don't think he was ever the PA announcer at the old barn here.

New Logo is kinda neat, but I dont like the Air Force militant look. I think its very disturbing, but im glad they at least kept the name the JETS rather than the Falcons or something lame.

The Department of National Defence assisted in the process.

take away the Maple Leaf like was suggested earlier. Makes the logo much more CLEANER looking.

yeah, it does look like crap on centre ice with that maple leaf. Especially since the centre line goes right through it, blocking the JET...lame-o
