Jerseys: Winnipeg Jets 2.0 Style

Well, this just goes to show you that you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time.

On one side you have those who HATE the jersey and HATE the logo. On the other side you have those who LOVE the jersey and LOVE the logo.  Some out there are ok with the logo and the jersey.

I don't mind if people out there like or dislike the jersey/logo, that is their opinions and one of the great things about living in a free society is expressing your opinions. What starts to grind on me is the people who are making it personal against True North and the Jets. Notice how people who hate the logo have to tear everything apart as to why they hate it, whereas those who like the jersey will simply say, "I like it". There doesn't have to be a reason, they are just grateful to have the team back, and to have the NHL back in Winnipeg.

I have a very simple way to explain things to the haters out there. Pool your money, raise a couple hundred million dollars and buy your own team. Create your own brand, logo, and jersey. Then watch the hate mail fly in on how YOU dropped the ball in creating the "look" of your team.

(The boys looked pretty good coming out of that Herc.)

Love them or hate them, its your opinion and you are lawfully granted the right to express yourself. So if you don't like the logo/jersey, say it. But don't hate the team or the owners for it.

Now. I'm going to go back to work so that I can earn enough money to buy a new Winnipeg Jets jersey and cheer my ass off this season! Go Jets Go!
