Well, "RedBlacks" could be deemed offensive, to not just one, but two racial groups. Someone said it above, but would we be chanting "Go Reds!" or "Go Blacks!"? Has Hunt and crew learned nothing from the Nepean Redskin controversy?
I think the team is simply leaking out bad names so when they finally release the final name, we'll all say "At least it's not the Rush or RedBlacks."
To me, if we can't get Rough Riders back, it should be Rivermen or Raftsmen. Please no "Ottawa Highlanders. My brother has served in that regiment for 15+ years and even they don't get the "Highlander" name. They would much prefer names with Canadian heritage rather than old colonial titles.
