-The R factor.
-The billingual name factor.

At first glance I prefer:

#1 The Ottawa Raftsmen
#2 The Ottawa Royals (as in Royals from WW1 but also the RCMP.)

To me #2 is the strongest and the black, red and white color them is bang on.

Regardless this process is fun and I look forward to screaming my face on on the new and way better South Side stands.
South side sucks!
