Man, with a name like that I can already see this team building up great rivalries with the Toronto Blue Whites and the Montreal Red Blues

It's great though. Great ideas like these give me hope that one day I could work in marketing for a major sports franchise.

Red Blacks?

IF you are going to go with that at least put the & between the two so it makes sense.

Red & Blacks even if an uninspiring name at least makes sense.

Well this seals it, "Red Blacks" being an actual option confirms that the franchises marketing team is made up of retarded monkeys.

The thing that worries me is that the name is so bad it'll probably happen.

The idea to bring back one more time Canadian rules football is already retarded.
The team will fail again, because in Ottawa people have no appetite for such a product. Athletes who already failed in NFL.

The only football, which will thrive in Ottawa is MLS. I will be first to go and buy the season pass to the fan zone. And the club's name FC By.

When we had the Rough Riders we as fans always identified the RR with our team but we rarely called them that in conversation. When referring to the team we mostly just said "the Riders". If the name is Red Black(s) I can't see us calling them the Reds or the Blacks so as I said earlier I call dibs on RB('s). Personally I'd promote the heck off the short form.

Well, their beef tastes like it was made from recycled footballs, so really, the sponsorship would be perfect.

I feel like almost any name will grow on us over time. Ottawa is growing as a city, and I think that the football team will be here to stay. Just look at the success of the Fat-Cats relative to what they were.

I'm just excited to get a football team back. It would be nice to have it be something like the Highlanders or another cool name but I'll just be happy to sit and watch some ball.

The Fat Cats still have a ridiculous name, even after a few years. It's hard to rally behind a team with a ridiculous name, no matter how good they are.

I've never liked the name Fat Cats. Never prevented me from going to a game though...

I like Binghamton but you'll never in a million years catch me with that cartoonish jersey. Cool design = merch sales. See Bulls, San Fransisco. I think it's much the same with a team name. Fats Cats is a good example.

Red & Blacks (& added 'cause that just makes more sense in my head) I could live with eventually. It's got that old-timey feel to it that is kinda neat. Depends how they flesh out the concept.
