Honestly it sounds kinda lame but their have been worse names so that is a positive I guess....

Ya. The specific term 'RedBlack' has no real signifficance. It is just a non-denominational way of trying to tie the team to Ottawa's sports history and the old Rough Riders.

I don't see what was wrong with Renegades, why not call them that? Again?
Unless the Saskatchewan Roughriders disappear there won't be another team to appear called Roughriders (or Rough Riders to be specific.

I hated Renegades. I much prefer the completely non-specific 'RedBlacks'. Now they just dress em in the old colours, slap a big R on the helmet, and they're as close to the Rough Riders as we are ever going to get.
