2) they are going to go with whatever was the "runner up" name/logo that couldn't beat out "Tomahawks" in the vetting process. I can only imagine what other names were on the list that made them think "Tomahawks" was awesome: Ottawa "Carpetbaggers", Ottawa "XTreem Masheens", Ottawa "Onslaught", or something equally as terrible.



As usual, I'm secretly hoping they call themselves the Capital City Goofballs.
I would support that name 100%

Yes Skyriders is cool...except I don't know what it is. It sounds cool, and has riders in it.

Aww man! Page 1, I was really feeling the "Larry David" logo.

Page 2, team name and logo get the chop.

It was a wild ride, Tomahawks.

I find this ridiculous. We can't name a team in this town without the whole darn city getting upset. It's the same time each time. Name gets mentioned, immediate reaction: awful name, no good.

The should just call themselves the Ottawa unnameables.

It is quite ridiculous, this is just a city that loves to complain, anonymously of course..

Ottawa Complaining Turds?
Ottawa Souless Nobodies?
Ottawa Crybabies?
Ottawa Red Tape?
Ottawa Padded Expense Accounts?

Thankfully they won't actually name the team after something relevant to this city.

JERKSTORE!!!! Where are you? Get on this!

It's hilarious when people tell others what's worth being offended over.

Another vintage Ottawa response both with the claims of racism and general hate towards anything new! But seriously like many have said here at what point do people stop getting offended? It has gotten a little out of control methinks. I suppose nobody should talk about anything native ever going forward as it seems literally anything associated is considered as such....don't even look at anything native ever or else!

This times infinity.

Except I would say disheartening instead of hilarious. People suck.

We should also all work together to make sure Pete Maravich gets arrested for using the nickname 'Pistol' for all these years as that is apt to encourage youths to use guns in violent crimes as witnessed by the 12,000+ gun shootings in the US alone each year.

/sarcasm

If you're going to complain about the name Tomahawk, I could understand why. Because it sucks. Probably the worst name that's ever been attached to a sports team in Ottawa. Ever.

I just don't understand where all the creativity is. You can name the team anything and design any logo you want and you come up with Tomahawk? You could have come up with anything like Fireland, Black Dragons, Red Star, Odyssey, etc. But they pick Tomahawk and then some oversensitive idiot who probably doesn't even watch basketball is offended?

I suppose we should shut down the NHL because violence offends some people.

Off to a smashing start this franchise is.

Also:

Quote:
Ian Campeau — an Ottawa aboriginal and a DJ with local group A Tribe Called Red — was also in the CBC Ottawa studio at the time. He applauded the move and said it showed leadership.

It sets Ottawa back almost thirty years, when the NCAA is on its way to remove names like this. Here we are starting new teams with names like TomaHawk, it's...it's backwards," he had said a day earlier.



... I don't actually think that clip applies, but I haven't used that clip in a while.

Kinda OT, but did they ever figure out a name for the upcoming CFL team? Seems Ottawa has a real prob with names.

I just have to say the New Zealand All Blacks are lucky they aren't a basketball squad.

Team1200's Jason York favours the name Musky or Muskie but it might offend the players

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskellunge

Partial quote for reference:
Quote:
The common name comes from the Ojibwa word maashkinoozhe, meaning "ugly pike", by way of French masque allongé (modified from the Ojibwa word by folk etymology), "elongated face."[citation needed] The French common name is masquinongé or maskinongé.
