The Online Petition: Ottawa Renegades

Post by Solar Max » Tue Jun 19, 2007 7:39 pm

Perhaps it's time for Ottawa and CFL fans to make known that we want to see football in the Nation's Capital sooner, rather than later. That means gathering the troops, so to speak, and being heard.

This petition was organized by a lifelong Ottawa fan, and Renegade Nation member, who would like to see our support. She is due to join 13thman and give her opinions on this as soon as she has some time.

In the meantime, here we are:

This wasn't my idea, I only wish it was; the person who did this is far wiser than I. Her name is Ripley, and she will hopefully be here soon to give us her point of view. :beer:

Wow, thanks a lot Solar Max, I am honored by your remarks. Hello everyone. Renegade Nation is my home but today I am travelling afield to ask for your help. I see on the petition there are 24 names so far, ok, this is not gonna impress the CFL. even if you love to hate the Renegades please sign it, get your kids to sign it, even the mailman. Just think, when we all get together and play each other, you can say, Oh my God, the Renegades beat us and to think I helped bring them back. Lol. Thanks to all who have signed so far.

When I read through all the posts on this board and see all of you CFL fans collectively chatting about your own teams and others, I feel sad and very envious of you all. We need that in Ottawa. We feel left out and abandoned. This petition thingy is a start and gives Fans a way to help each other, East and West. There are a few things we are working on to try and grab some attention from the CFL and City council, one being a full page ad in the National Post, we have a couple of people drafting an ad and I look forward to seeing it. Hopefully this ad will awake some sleepy fans and politicians to let them know we are still waiting for some news on our situation. Another wish for this ad is we hope any potential buyers will see it and realize how much we do care. When the final draft is in I will post it so you all can see, it is really a brilliant ad, the message is awesome and subtle, it will be full page all color.

Thank you, all of you. We have to be here for each other, if one falls then we have to work together to try and pick them up. I never in a million years thought I would post on this board as I am a die-hard Ottawa fan and that`s all I could see but seeing your posts have made me realize we are all fans of CFL and it`s OK to post here and not be laughed at. Thankyou people. I have never had a conversation with an Argo fan. Lot`s of yelling but no talks. LoL.
