Where did you hear this? I haven't heard anything official or even anything more than speculation.
I have to admit (my own speculation now) that the announcement that they were only going to reveal the team name after the drive to 13000 was over (June 21st) makes me believe it likely won't be the Jets.

I think they're going to keep the "Jets" name, but with new colours and new logo, so all the Winnipegers will buy up all the new merchandise and keep chanting "Go Jets Go!!!" at the games... which they're going to do regardless of a "new" name...
Early season ticket drive (available to Manitoba Moose season ticket holders) is up to 4200 in one day... which is pretty cool considering that their are only 2000 Manitoba Moose season ticket holders...
Tickets to the general public go on sale Saturday at noon... it's going to be bananas...

[...]Speaking to the Vancouver Sun, witness William said:
"The girl who was knocked over landed head first on the pavement with her boyfriend landed partially on top of her. She was in visible pain, crying, but the two officers gave them a parting shove and moved on. Bystanders went to make sure she was OK."
