WFP reports new colors!

WFP and Wpg sun reporting that their reporters saw the lower bowl of the MTS centre being painted blue and silver. At least we might have some ideas now. At least it's not the odd colored blue and red from before (that weren't matched up until the 1996 circa).

They should paint the MTS Center's interior with the same yellowish orange that they had at the old barn.

All kidding aside, I think the colours are going to be sweet!!! Rumour has it, red will also be one of the team colours.

COLOUR COMBO: Twitterverse was aflutter Tuesday after reporters saw the lower level of MTS Centre painted navy blue and silver, perhaps suggesting those will be the colours of the Winnipeg Jets jerseys.
This is awesome news! I think navy blue, silver and white will make a nice, classic jersey.

I like the Navy Blue and Silver colours as well add some white and leave out the red.

I really would like the silver to more than just a secondary color. If the dark jersey were that grey/silver (primary) color with the blue/red/white as the secondary, that would be really sweet.

Not a real fan of navy though. I'd much prefer more of a royal blue.


I could totally get on board if the uniforms are vastly similar to the ones that the St. John's Sea Dogs use except with an added hints of red striping somewhere. That is a shade of blue that I do like.

I disagree, adding red would make the uniform stand out and not look like the Tampa Bay Lighting ot Toronto Maple Leafs.

Any one think that red could still be the primary colour for the new team? I figure theres a chance that they paint the walls blue that way they can put the logo and text over top of it. Just a thought because of all the rumours about red being more prominent. Also red every where could be a little bit overwhelming.

I won't mind a maple leaf in there, but I hope they don't go with much more red than that.

Sportsnet guys are tweeting as well that you should have the answer to logo/colours late this week or early next.

Navy, Silver, with a yellow or gold trimline would be cool.

the logo and colors are supposed to be dramatically different from the ol' circa Jets. Either way - I'm excited to see it!

I had heard that as well, but I guy I know who works at the MTS Center told me the dressing room is currently being painted in red, white and blue. Not the same colours as the old Jets colours, but still close to the same colour scheme.

Personally, I would like to see us drop the red and use another accent colour.

I wonder if they will change the colours to the seats to navy blue maybe the following year or so. The current colour will not match well with silver and blue
