I don't know why but I somehow don't mind it...

I still like my suggestion of Rhinos

Ottawa Regiment might satisfy some who want the military connection;

or Raftsmen if you want the lumber connection.

Both give Hunt the "R" helmut.

I vote either Rough Riders or Highlanders or Ottawa don't have a names. Also I wouldn't mind Raftsmen or Regiment.

I get what they're going for...like a Cleveland Browns, Laval Rouge et Or and New Zealand All Blacks vibe....but Red Blacks isn't cutting it...

How about...Runnin' Blacks?

Also, I'm paranoid the Red Blacks logo will consist of a white guy in blackface....

If the team is called the "Red Blacks" I probably won't support them.

Not kidding. What a horrid name.

I'll support the team no matter what they are called.. To not support a team because of their nickname is pretty lame...There could be plenty worse than Red Blacks..

Well, "RedBlacks" could be deemed offensive, to not just one, but two racial groups. Someone said it above, but would we be chanting "Go Reds!" or "Go Blacks!"? Has Hunt and crew learned nothing from the Nepean Redskin controversy?

I think the team is simply leaking out bad names so when they finally release the final name, we'll all say "At least it's not the Rush or RedBlacks."

To me, if we can't get Rough Riders back, it should be Rivermen or Raftsmen. Please no "Ottawa Highlanders. My brother has served in that regiment for 15+ years and even they don't get the "Highlander" name. They would much prefer names with Canadian heritage rather than old colonial titles.

I didn't like the two-colour name on the Laval Rouge & Or, and I sure as **** don't like it on the Red Blacks. Ridiculous.

How about "Red Riders" and everybody could go back to calling them the Riders, as usual.

And Tom Cochrane's song White Hot could be the theme for the team.

I'd like them to be called the Ottawa Valley Highlanders, just for laughs. Red Blacks is almost as funny though.

Trying to link this to race is beyond ridiculous. The redskins are a TOTALLY different thing than RedBlacks.

RedBlacks is literally the worst name for a sports team I've ever heard.

I guess I could kind of get behind the "red and black" but red blacks seems odd to me
