Hmmmmmm, maybe, or they might be more national than municipal. During my meeting with the Camerons, they showed us a plaque given by the mayor that recognizes them as Ottawa's Regiment. Can't remember if they're the only one though, but they're the "official" regiment for sure.

Highlanders will always be Scottish.

And something tells me the Shiners will have something to say about it...

The GGFG is most assuredly a local regiment, they were raised from Ottawa and recruit only locally. During WW1, Guards served in the 77th Ottawa Bt and the 2nd Eastern Ontario Bt .This is one of the two regiments my family has traditionally served in, the other being the Hasty Ps.

They are every bit the local regiment the Highlanders are, with the added duty of being a Guards regiment.

On the ottawa coat of arms is a member of the Civil Service Rifle corps


The 1st and 2nd companies of the Civil Service Corps became the 1st and 2nd companies of the GGFG.

edit: btw I'm not arguing against your proposal, just the idea of them being Ottawa's only regiment I find laughable.

I'm sure the logo is going to be great, as your works always is. I own your Sens jersey btw and it's by far the best uni the sens have ever had.

As for the CFL team personally I heard this other idea once about Rifles or Riflemen which I thought felt quite right.

Because it has..

A) the large R going for it.
B) it also connected to our infantry regiments since the Highlanders used to be the Carleton Rifles and the GGFG used to be the Civil Service Rifles

Yeah, in a perfect world they would be called the Rough Riders and rock the big white R, but my opinion on that differs from others: To me the R will always be the Rough Riders, and I'm not a fan of using it with another team name... As I've said before, it's as if the Sens left town, came back, lost the rights to the name Senators and called themselves the Centurions to use the Senators logo... For me it would be a big no-no and I feel the same way about the R.

It's a shame though

Oh and thanks for the compliments for the jersey, glad you like it but much of the credit goes to the very board who really gave the big push to make it go viral in Ottawa and beyond

Also, if they do come back with the R, I'll be a fan for sure as I love the look and historical reference, but the association between it and the new name I won't be a fan of, as great as the name may be

Ottawa Responders

Amazing PR opportunities
Interesting fundraising possibilities could support many causes
Police could include RCMP, OPP, and Ottawa
Firefighters sponsor the Defence
Police sponsor the Offense
Paramedics sponsor the Special Teams
Keep the R
Access to Police Pipes and Band (and Slewidge)
Access to Firefighter's Pipes and Band
Interesting half-time entertainment contests possible
Police can run the tailgate bar and administer breathalizers for fun
Firehouse chilie and ribs make the tailgate a party zone
Paramedics can revive the visiting teams after a loss or moniter fans watching our cheerleaders

All that said - Jerk Store is way ahead as usual.

I like the tribute to first responders, but I'm not convinced in it as a team name. The "Responders" just don't really inspire any fear as a name.

Sorry, but Responders?

It's like they have to spot the other team 7 points.

And yes, your tongue might be firmly in cheek there.

As for the "R" thing, it's not as if the Rough Riders or the Renegades had any real success in the last 30 or so years.

Let's start anew.

I like Highlanders, personally. I prefer names with some historical context.

We're always trying to be inclusive of EVERYONE in the world. Everyone has a little "Highlander" in them. It's more of a mentality than your genetic history.

I'm sure Chicago hockey fans aren't miffed that their team name doesn't represent them. Or that there are Fighting Irish fans out there who aren't from the Old Country.

Plus, pipe bands are awesome.

It means a lot coming from a vet I'm happy to tell you guys that this project will get its first exposure in the media later in the week!

Lots to come including the branding, slogan, etc.!

Its why I indicated JS was way ahead as usual. I like the tailgate ideas and maybe we could still look into that but Highlanders, the way its been teased, sounds outstanding.

Bring on the Tarten pants!

And I really want to see what Jerk Store does for the cheerleader's unis

Ottawa Black Riders

Obviously, its similar to the old name. Saskatchewan can call themselves the Green Riders if they want. And its a good name too. Remember the Black Riders from Lord of the Rings? Wouldn't you want them on your football team?



And you can keep the R

Good name choice. It guarantees that when we fold and leave the league, some other team won't turn around and steal it.
