While it's true Teddy Roosevelt's guys were known as "Rough Riders", I believe that the term "Rough Riders" used for the Ottawa football team was derived from our lumber history. The men who brought the lumber down the Gatineau River were called "Rough Riders".

Anyway, I don't mind the Highlanders name, and I think the history posted was cool, but would prefer something with an "R". Raftsmen fits the bill nicely.

Uniform must be Red, White and Black no question. The Riders tried Blue, Red and Gold I believe and it was just ...wrong.
