The Winnipeg Jets Franchise Return Re-visited

ok. i actually was happy for the city of winnipeg to have their beloved jets return. most canadians want to see more canadian teams in the NHL, and a lot of Canadians have fond memories of The Jets (once they lost their franchise).

i have to say though i don't them. now that i've seen them play for an entire season with that new uniform i don't like it one bit. there uniform is too close to the leafs uniform. when i see them on tv i think: "oh the leafs are playing on tv tonight". no that's the jets.

sorry jets fans. that is the biggest leaf jersey ripoff. find another design or go back to the old logo!



^ oh look! a navy uniform with a maple leaf in the center.

GTFO of the NHL again. please. get your own logo!



don't you think the jets could have done better?!

Keep it up.

I think the logo is cool but not as a primary logo. The old Jets logo & this as an alternate might not be the most consistent style but I think it'd be the best choice

The difference being the Leafs actually have good uni's. Srs, I see no resemblance other than the Leaf.

Step 1) Know when the Leafs are playing
Step 2) Know what channel when said Leafs are playing on
Step 3) Cheer for the Leafs and don't confuse anything else.

Done

I always hated how we in Canada have this little brother syndrome where we have to put a maple leaf on everything. You dont see american teams putting american flags in their logos. The only team that should have a maple leaf in the logo is the maple leafs! Atleast the raptors dont have a leaf in their logo.

i also think that is the reason many people on this board are defending it.

How in the world do you confuse the two jerseys? I don't think they look anything alike. They both have a maple leaf on it but that's as far as the resemblance goes, in my opinion. I agree that they could've done better but not because it's a Leafs ripoff, but because I don't particularly find their jersey appealing. I like the logo on the shoulder but not the main logo on the chest.

Ok obviously there are some but they have a reason. A yankee is a slang name for an american. Washington is because it is the nations capital. The sox one i've never even seen before and im not sure if it's a white sox or red sox???? Must be a rare alternate.

But calgary flames with maple leafs on their uniforms???? doesnt even make sense!

They can't use the original logo because it is owned by Phoenix, which is a reason I wanted them to be moved instead of Atlanta.
