What I derive so far from Mr Hunt's interviews:
1) It's probable that the name will be announced by mid January when they introduce a GM along with at the very least some promo material like helmet logos and maybe a jersey mockup.
2) The team will adopt the usual red black and white colours.
3) The RR name and/or something with local connections would be nice but not essential.
4) Personally Mr Hunt would choose Rough Riders if it was available.
From what he said, we can eliminate any name already used by any other sport team in Canada or the USA so don't expect a trademark war with anyone.
5) Unless there's a name that jumps out above all others, Mr Hunt doesn't feel the name is that important. No single name he's heard so far has mass appeal so he figures when we connect with the on-field product we'll identify with the team name in time.
