I'm sure there are many that don't pay close attention to this stuff and would buy them anyway. "Oh wow, this Jets jersey is so cheap, and they're not even out yet! I'll look so cool *click*". It sucks but it'd undoubtedly happen. Then again, there will still be fakes made once the jersey is official and I hope they look like **** so people feel bad for buying them.

Exactly. It's a dumb excuse.

My brain is automatically coloring the circle and the jet red. They should stick with the original color scheme, or ditch the black and go navy blue, red, and silver (a la the NYR Liberty jersey color scheme).

I have to agree.. Those jerseys are awful

Agreed. The royal blue used by the Islanders looks amazing.

I can't see how anyone could think that Avro concept is ugly. It's a thing of beauty. Looks even better in the traditional colour scheme.

The Avro concept would make a good SHOULDER PATCH but not a main chest logo imo.

Did you make it? Your getting very defensive about the design, its a matter of opinion. I for one tend to agree that it's rather ugly and not NHL worthy.

I like the idea of blue and silver. Hate the color red. Blue and gold are bombers colors, so blue and silver would Jets colors? I like the idea.

Darren Dreger says on his twitter that he hasn't seen the Jets new logo or sweater design but he is told it's very impressive.

That logo is beyond busy and way too generic. Terrible.

It took about 18 hours for some hand-stitched knockoffs of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress to go on sale. Making copies of a logo released on video or worse, print or internet images, with a jersey design, would be both easier to reproduce, and then mass produce.

We live in an age where if you release something with this kind of demand, you’re going to lose a ton of business to knockoffs right off the bat, and that doesn’t even take into account the people selling old Winnipeg Jets heritage stuff. Then there are people just going into a t-shirt place and printing off Winnipeg Jets Welcome Back or something like that.

I know Blue and Red are the Jets traditional colours but blue is overplayed in the NHL and there are several teams that are "blue and red" teams I can think of Montreal, New York, Washington, Florida, Columbus and the Avs (sort of)

I am probably the only one but I'd love to see a green, slate grey and black.

I know it is never going to happen though

I'm wondering if that was taken out of context. The report I saw said "some of the colour scheme would be the same". Which could mean blue, silver and black.

The reason they didn't unveil it at the Draft was because the board of governors have to approve the design and colors.

Also, TNSE has stated that they did not want to unveil the new emblem and colors before they had a inventory to prevent bootlegs. This way, people will be hungry for merch when it's ready and everyone wins.

I hope you're right. I hated the red white and blue design. I hated the new logo as the jet graphic was so abstract that there was really no point in including it. I also don't like the circle with the curved Winnipeg text. Anything they do to this emblem will be a huge improvement. Blue,Silver and Black would be fantastic. It'll be nice to watch a team that doesn't look like they're skating around in clown pants. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Jets fan...Just being a graphic artist I hate poor design.

I've seen a fan made logo floating around that I also didn't like, though the jet in it was distinctly a fighter plane. It also featured one of Winnipegs most hated landmarks which happens to be the Provencher bridge. It would be free advertising for one of the worst restaurant franchises in Winnipeg, which is Salisbury House.
