After learning from Mayor Sam Katz that True North Sports and Entertainment is leaning away from naming any future Winnipeg based NHL franchise the “Winnipeg Jets” , a campaign requesting that fans voice their opinion directly to TNSE via e-mail broke out via the below Twitter message.
One reader that sent a “Pro Jets” e-mail to the address listed above has allowed us to publish the reply that he received from Scott Brown, the TNSE Director of Corporate Communications and Hockey Operations.
Of course, we believe that most people received a similar response to these e-mails. And, we certainly commend TNSE for their communications efforts in acknowledging the Winnipeg fans.
The Winnipeg Jets Petition!
In addition to the e-mail campaign, thousands of Winnipeg Jets fans have signed an online petition requesting that any new NHL franchise based in the city be called the Winnipeg Jets.
