Without wandering too far down the rabbit trail, the Jets name was resurrected more-or-less because of the public pressure, if I recall correctly. Chipman et al had a different name for the team, but the public insisted they were the Jets, so the Jets they were.

And very interesting about the 2-weeks thing. I really don't think the CoG is open for old-style business anymore, and the actual costs of running the arena making it onto the front page of the paper really is the end of the gravy train here.
