Just call them "The Ottawa Senators: Field Division" or "Senators 2.0"

While I understand you're joking, I think it's cool the way some European teams have an organization that has both hockey and soccer teams to it. It'd be unique for sure.

ANYTHING is better than "Rush". Dear god, why not just name them the "Ottawa XTREEM", or the "Ottawa Sno-Warriorz"...
How 'bout, "Ottawa Rapidz"

I was, but I certainly wouldn't be against the concept, hell this may be a good time to bring back the 2d logo's!

Just because we had one embarrassing team name, doesn't mean we need to make it a trend.

That will never happen. I assume you don't mean to refer to Aboriginal people with the name, but it invites the assumption. I can't see any organization being stupid enough these days to start a team with a questionable name like that.

Say it isn't so!!! That would be awful.

These Ottawa related RR names would be more fitting

Reluctant Recyclers or Returning Rubbish

WHAT THE $&@% IS THIS $#/* ?!??!?

Red. Blacks.

I would not attend a single game, ever, out of embarrassment over having to cheer for a team called "the Red Blacks". Say it out loud... "GO REDBLACKS". What's the short-form for that: "Go Blacks"? "Go Reds"? Yeah. Those are REAL good options there, idiots. It's just the worst thing I've ever heard.
Like ... I can't even think of a witty response to this. I want to post something funny, but there is nothing funny about "Red Blacks".

That name is about as appropriate as someone making a "cancer joke" in an oncologist's office. It's just awkward, and terrible, and whoever thought of it needs to be either fired, or punched in the larynx. Or both.

I LOVE Red Blacks. Probably my favourite name that I have heard so far.

Rumors are true...they are considering Red Blacks.

I would have even preferred Rouge et Noir over this horrible name.

I would rather be called the "Ottawa Silly Nannies" than the "Ottawa Red Blacks".

If we're going to have a terrible name, we should at least be up front about it.

Actually it would be the Rouge et Noir which close enough to Rouge et Or to make a connection in fan's minds...it's not perfect but I'd definitely put money toward it:
  • "R" name
  • Keeps colours (Red and Black)
  • Simplicity works, and not just for patterns
  • Double "R" logo potential
