Also, might be making a limited edition run of New Era snapbacks to create more buzz. Norml has agreed to have them in store so I'll keep you all posted
So what you're saying is HFers get first dibs, right?

Hehe, I'll probably separate them in 3 batches, one for Facebook group, one for HF and some at Norml. Don't wanna be stuck with a bunch of them hehe. I'll see what the price per unit will be and let everyone know if it gets done

This is what bothers me about the Highlanders. Team names need shortened forms. If they don't work based on the actual name used they'll be organically created by the fanbase based on something else (Habs).

The Ottawa H's is really all I can think of. Don't like it.

Argos
Ti-cats
Als
Bombers
Riders
Eskys

The Renegades was a stupid ****ing name for this reason, among others.

I don't think an abbreviation is absolutely necessary. The only way it is necessary is for team chants, but even then 'Let's Go Highlanders' works well enough.

As far as the length of the name of # of syllabels, I don't see an issue with that. I don't even dislike the name that much, more its connotation and packaging. As for another long name I like are the Michigan State Wolverines. Wolverines was a great name even before X-Men came along.

Just curious, what were the other team names you brainstormed? Totally understand if you cannot divulge, just wondering.

The Ottawa Sredir hgour! People can chant go Sredir go and there are plenty of R's in the name. I doubt anyone in Saskatchewan would be smart enough to catch on.

Hehe, would be counter productive if I got more names out. Perhaps when this is done we can share them and the other logos we opted not to go with

I like the name Ottawa "Raiders"

- It retains the "R".

- It's easy for the fans to chant.

Again showing that people in Ottawa are afraid of change. Fussing about the name because it doesn't have a nickname we can chant?

They shorten it to Isles though. Highles would obviously sound weird.

I don't even know why we need to have a shortened name, though. Not a big deal. I'm in love with the Highlanders name.
