It's Game 7 and...Holy Sh*t -- These are GREAT!






























Go Jets Go




INCREDIBLE ARTWORK BY Fraser Davidson and Brian Gundell

I can't help it feel that we are officially "down to the wire" with the whole name debate.

With this little blog, I tried to be as polite and respectful as I could...having said that, I am through messing around.

Any decision to not go with this brand is a HUGE mistake. Maybe the biggest branding mistake...ever. This work blows my mind--it is better late than never! It's so good, that I can't help it feel like we have all been had...and that actually, this work has been commissioned by our new NHL team ownership. Don't forget, we ARE partially dealing with a Multi-billionaire that appreciates Art.

"The Jets is a fine name," has been declared.

I hope this whole drawn out name game is just the biggest teaser of all time...well, the second biggest teaser of all time.

Let me put it to you in Hockey Coach Language...

"It's game 7 and Stanley Cup is on the line. We are going into the 3rd period and we are down by 3...

If anyone has the ability to make something happen out there--and I am trying to be polite as I can be by not naming names--pull your head out of wherever it may be and GET IN THE F*CKING GAME!"

P.S. In all seriousness, thank you TNSE for bringing the NHL back to Winnipeg! I am officially done discussing this topic on this blog...but on twitter? Still free game! I hope that everyone supports the team, regardless of the name. It still seems like a dream, but when the first puck is dropped, people will have no choice but to get on board!

We're BACK!

  3. thx for the posts. They can't confirm the name until everything is official--it isn't yet...we still need the final sign-off by the BOG. June 21st, I believe.

    I just hope it is the JETS. Just like it should be the NORDIQUES for you! :)

    I love the 80's Jets logo the best...the 90's one seems less timeless to me.

    Good Luck!

  4. eeew..... peewee hockey logo at best.. the one that has the three jets in the form of a maple leaf, that might be the worst logo I have ever seen. I can understand why people want them to be called the Jets.. but they are not the Jets... no jets records, no jets alumni, no jets retired jerseys... this team is not the jets. Im not trying to hate here, just being honest. I appreciate the patriotism, and the passion that the Jets fans have, I just don't think it's going to happen. I think TNSE will call them The Manitoba Moose.
