Really? Do they show every game, or is there a chance a few won't get shown?

Every game, regular season and playoffs. Though sometimes during double headers you might miss a few minutes of the second game if the first goes late.

Same. One of the things that got me interested was that it was easily viewable and in decent quality. Just go to TSN, click, and bam. There's the feed.

Not anymore. Now that TSN doled out 200 million for CFL rights, the live streaming has most certainly ended. Its avail on demand though.

I feel back for Jeff Hunt and co. They are getting a rough ride for so many things. As a football fan, I'm excited to finally have a ownership group that cares about the city.

GO REDBLACKS GO!

I don't think there's another city in the world that complains as much as this one does.

They're bringing football back and financing it. If they wanted to call them the Ottawa Pirouettes I really wouldn't care. Is it my first choice? No, but it's also not my team.

You do realize you're complaining about people who complain, right?

It was an observation not a complaint.

While technically they Red and White Sox did misspell the word, there is a real reason behind it:

Quote:
Around the turn of the century, there were movements towards spelling reform and shortening of words, and by the 1900s, "sox" had become a common way to shorten "socks", appearing that way in advertisements for hosiery. By 1921 the shortened way had stuck, and H.L. Mencken said it best: "The White Sox are known to all Americans; the White Socks would seem strange."

Went to a Washington Nationals game last week in D.C., and discovered that you can market pretty much any name if you are creative enough. Let's face it - "Nationals" is about the most boring, generic name you can imagine. (That's the kind of name you give a team when you are trying not to offend anyone, and end up boring everyone.) They have made the most of it, though, using the hashtag #NATITUDE as their slogan - "Do you have #NATITUDE?" "Show some #NATITUDE" etc. etc. (You'll note they go all caps as well.)

They also have these cool mascots, the "Racing Presidents", who are big replicas of former Presidents like Jefferson, Lincoln, etc. They do an obstacle race every game, appear in the stands during the games, etc. You wouldn't think that there is much cool about old dead white guys, but the Nationals found a way to make it fun.

Moral of the story - the name is just a place to start. It's what you do with it afterwards that counts...

For those who've missed them, there are tons of great pictures of the on-going stadium construction on the city website @ http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/planni...ottawa/stadium

Looks phenomenal, and if you've walked by it recently, you can picture exactly how it will look when it's finished.

Can't believe it's less than 360 days until we have a summer team to watch again (more like 2 if you count NASL).

I'm never going to refer to them as the RedBlacks, the REDBLACKS, or even the ROUGE-ET-NOIRES. To me they will forever be known as the 'Ottawa WHARRGARBLs'
