UNDER FIRE: In Winnipeg, Jason Halstead reports anti-war hockey fans are "taking aim at the new Winnipeg Jets logo, saying its overt link to the Canadian military alienates them from the team." The logo "features an air force jet atop a maple leaf and a Royal Canadian Air Force roundel." Jets Dir of Corporate Communications & Hockey Operations Scott Brown said that the team "has received both praise and criticism for the military bent of the new logo." Jets Owner True North Sports & Entertainment has "pledged $1 million for military charities over the next decade" (WINNIPEG SUN, 8/11).
