What I derive so far from Mr Hunt's interviews:

1) It's probable that the name will be announced by mid January when they introduce a GM along with at the very least some promo material like helmet logos and maybe a jersey mockup.

2) The team will adopt the usual red black and white colours.

3) The RR name and/or something with local connections would be nice but not essential.

4) Personally Mr Hunt would choose Rough Riders if it was available.
From what he said, we can eliminate any name already used by any other sport team in Canada or the USA so don't expect a trademark war with anyone.

5) Unless there's a name that jumps out above all others, Mr Hunt doesn't feel the name is that important. No single name he's heard so far has mass appeal so he figures when we connect with the on-field product we'll identify with the team name in time.

News coming from TGOR this morning is saying that the team is to be named the Ottawa Rush.
It has an R in it... so... yay? As long as they don't try to ruin the logo and jerseys all modern and streamlined like the old Jays jerseys before this year.

Or the current home/away sens jerseys

Ottawa Rush is the perfect name!!!

If a WNBA franchise was coming to the city. What the hell is a Rush anyways? I'll only support it if Rush the Band plays at all half-times...

Very curious to see what kind of logo and mascot they can associate with "Rush"

There's a Lacrosse team in Edmonton called Rush...

It's actually a football play.

It also can be drug related though... Trying to aim the 18-25 market?

I wonder if it was purposefully leaked as a trial balloon to see public reaction? If so, I also hope negative reaction will cause them to re-think. I'm not generally a fan of 'singular' names.

I don't doubt that they would register multiple potential names; you don't want Internet squatters to swoop your name before you settle on it.

Probably on the shortlist and Hunt is floating the idea to gauge support.

He's said he wants the "R" so it will have to have that and be available - not many great names will have both.

Ottawa Rage
Ottawa Radical
Ottawa Rampage
Ottawa Rapids
Ottawa Raiders
Ottawa Red Raiders
Ottawa Redhawks
Ottawa Revolution
Ottawa Rocks

There will be many choices in the R area we like that will be considered.


Roadkill

Either way, this is Ottawa, no matter what name they pick at least 50% of the population won't like it...

Pretty sure this is what's happening. Still, the fact that their collective minds liked it enough to retain it at register it worries me a whole lot. Rush... Come on.

Their logo could be the naked guy on the Hemispheres album.

Rivermen (name is up for grabs since Peoria isn't in the AHL anymore right?)


All better than Rush....unless they came out to this...then that would be awesome.

Please, please find a standard nickname that ends with an s.

Rush is a really awful nickname.

Whhhhyyyy cling to the friggin' letter R.

Whenever I see any plain letter R logo, I immediately think of Archie comics.

Whoa people settle down....NOTHING's BEEN DECIDED.

Here is the original article...http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...team-name.html

Sounds like it was just one of many they are considering...absolutely not finalized, not sure what my fellow poster who broke the news above was smoking....

It's better than Rivermen/raiders/rough riders though that's for sure...

No, it's not.

Honest to God, it's a name that would be perfect for a Novice House League team.

That's not fair. It would also make a great name for an Arena Football team based out of Grand Rapids.
