Apparently it is one of many names they have registered so there is hope that it is only a finalist. Why call a team based on emotion or feeling? A simple google of animals with the letter R gives you something that seems very marketable, tough and gives you the blessed "R" that everyone is hung up on...Rhinos. You have a big tough beast with a Spike on his face, want something tougher? Geez, you go through NFL names and they have birds, reptiles, mammals, etc... like how hard is it to find an animal?

That's what I always said... Just pick an animal and go with it.. Even if it's already used in another league, I think you can still use it (ie: Jets)

Just pick something simple.. No need to have these hip and cool names...

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...
Hey, in my defence, I started it out with "News coming from TGOR".

Judging by the 70% of people on the current Citizen poll who don't like the name, I imagine its far from being a done deal.

Plus Hunt keeps saying that it will be put to a vote by the public.

When the Winnipeg Jets were coming back they filed trademarks for about 5 names.

Let's go Rush Riders!

a few more R names...

The Ramifications
The Replacements staring Keanu Reeves
The Rideau Centres
The Railway Tycoons
The Rankin Family
The Raincoats

If their name is Regiment, can we call them the Reggies?

Highlanders is still my number one; nothing else has jumped out at me.

Honestly I prefer Renegades to a lot of the names thrown out here.

I hope everyone gets behind this franchise, regardless of the name, and prove all the naysayers wrong. You know what everyone across the country says - "Ottawa is a lousy sports town, people are apathetic, they won't support their teams", etc. etc. It's a crock, but we will prove them right if we have a bunch of people who run around saying they won't attend games or buy merchandise because they don't like the name. Get excited, people! Lansdowne is being transformed, and soon we will have even more sports in town. To me, that is NEVER a bad thing.

If we were apathetic, we wouldn't care what the name is. The fact that there is a backlash and people are speaking out is a good sign that people actually will care about Ottawa's team.

Ottawans support:

1)Cheap ticket (sports or otherwise)
2)Winning.

If the new CFL team wins and ducats are cheap then the place will fill. Otherwise people will lose interest and put their money elsewhere, excepting a handful of hardcore CFL fans.

Couldn't agree more...Ottawa is the worst sports town outside of hockey and even that can get pretty ho hum when the sens are average.

You know how I can tell? During this current lockout I need to SEEK OUT sports talk of any kind.

Sports is something that happens in other cities I guess.
