I'm biased for sure, but still think Highlanders, eben without the branding aspect, is the best sounding name. Add the history related to not only Ottawa but Lansdowne AND the old Rough Riders and it's as good as it get in my opinion.

(Haven't read this thread lately, so forgive me if this has already been said.)


Red Blacks (or is it Black Reds?) -- the name SUCKS.

What's going on? Why do they keep coming up with these super lame names that NOBODY ELSE surely suggested? Are they softening us up for when they announce the new name, so we will all say "Yeah that's a great name for our CFL team. Awesome." Remember the Ottawa Beavers? Well, we were all so happy with the Ottawa Renegades after that.

Fear not, you shan't need to go back through the thread. I'll provide you with the 2 second sound-byte: your opinion is pretty much the common consensus opinion here, too. Name sucks.

Although I said that I would just be happy with getting a football team; I am also a supporter of the Highlanders name and design. It's a good design and a strong name.

Of the two that have been floated so far, I prefer RedBlacks to Rush.

Give me "Rush" over "Red Blacks" on every day of the week. Both aren't good but "Red Blacks" just may be the worst possible name.

I see more people coming around to Red AND Blacks. I really think the & is crucial.

Northmen

If the R is necessary (Hunt seems to say so) then

Regiment, Raftsmen, Rage, Revolution, etc will all be in the mix.

Apparently there is a focus group out for Red/Black vs Rush name. We can make our opinions know direct once they start up.

Red & Black seems better to me. I feel like I have to look around and make sure no one is listening if I say 'blacks'.

We could go the other way and call ourselves the Roosters

I'd alter Red-Blacks to Redbacks. Red-blacks just sounds weird.

Regiment is ok.

i don't think i like Red and Black, or Redblacks much. at times i thought, ok it's not so bad. right now i'm thinking it's pretty bad.

Rush does sound xfl ish

i kind of like Royale too. classy in a tough way.

It's a classy name... but not one I'll ever be able to see without "with cheese" after. I WOULD say that this would be enough to disqualify the name... but this is the CFL, after all.

you don't think of adding cheese to casino royale or battle royale do you? royale without cheese can still be a very tasty burger.

I do. It's impossible for my mind not to mentally edit that. Just like when I hear 'Benoit,' my mind automatically adds 'balls.'

Completely agree. With the & in there I actually like the name quite a bit.
