Ottawa decides on a name - the "RedBlacks"

Ottawa's new CFL team, one which has been delayed years already for a variety of issues, might be on the verge of finally deciding on a name. The original Ottawa CFL team was called the "Rough Riders," but with Saskatchewan being the "Roughriders," probably not interested in having two essentially identical team names in such a small league again (they're not the SEC, after all). Their second team was the "Renegades," but that never really seemed to be that popular of a choice, from what I've heard.

So, they're likely going with a new name.... the.... "Red Blacks?"

The reaction's apparently been lukewarm, and it does sound a bit off.... but, I do have to admit that I kind of like it, for reasons I can't really explain.
