I'm kinda getting used to Red & Blacks. But they have to add the & or else .

I don't mind red blacks. However, if they call the team a french name as has been rumoured (rouge et noir), then I'll boycott.

Do you mean an only french name? Because that would never happen, ever.

But they will have a french name along with an english one...

Just like Senators - Sénateurs

Exactly it'll be Red and Blacks - Rouge et Noir.

I expect they'd be called the RedBlack in English and RougeNoir in French.
It only makes sense.

Why would you boycott?

Now I actually think it sounds cooler in French.

As Smash and others have said, I'm sure they'll have both.

Do you really have to ask?

But no, one in English and one in French makes more sense, and is fine by me.

I would be SO down with Ottawa Rogues. Not sold on the logo design, but that team name is excellent.

My favourite fast food spot with a dong in its logo.

Red Blacks is a great name to lower expectation, then everyone accepts the next real suggestion. Rogue sounds like the Renegades.

Red Blacks ? Ouch !

Why not the RAFTMEN. Historically it makes lots of sense and you keep the big "R".

I was okay with Red Blacks until i found out there is a rugby team called the All Blacks.

It's just such a shameless pathetic ripoff.

I also just learned of the All Blacks and their Haka dance. Must say I have not seen anything quite like that before a game...

Yes everything that contains the word black in it is racist.

What about these names:

Ottawa Revenge
Ottawa Red Runners
Ottawa Highlanders I actually quite like. Lot of Scottish heritage in the community as well.
Ottawa Repo Men
Ottawa Ravagers
Ottawa Relic

Forgot most of them lol, but just a few ideas.

Come on now folks give the guy a break on the racism. Could you really blame someone from another culture for being confused if they turn the TV on to see a bunch of black football players surrounded by Ottawa citizens yelling "Go Blacks Go"?
