seems like the als give up for other teams so often. the ottawa-montreal rivalry should rekindle anew.

never too early to start: Redblacks suck! ;)

Speaking of which, the team name which was suppose to be named late Jan/early Feb, has been postponed for a couple of months now,

my guess is there was a massive influx of bad rants on the redblacks' name. they need some time to re-think.

My thinking is that everyone has a different opinion, and they know what they want now, so no matter what name is announced, 95% are going to be upset with it. So thos way, the idea is to hopefully let everybody forget about it, and then just pop the name on evetyone a few months down the road,

So Ottawa was suppose to have a name well over a month ago,
With Hunt having a name the team campaign, and getting no clear def popular name, the new name is going to draw more criticism than support,,
I'm sure all he's doing now, is waiting for quiet, and it not being in the forefront of everybody's mind, and just popping it on everyone then,
I'm sure the name has already been decided, and I think they stuck on the RedBlacks,

Now it is more a question of when, than what

I don't totally object to RedBlacks, maybe because I don't want to accept not liking the name that we'll probably be, but it's way down my list,
My first pick would be

The Ottawa Butchers then
The Ottawa Wolfs
The Ottawa Robins

All names that I think were great, but not even concidered.

There are many who are uncomfortable with the name "RedBlacks", including Russ Jackson.

I will support the team regardless, but there has to be a better monicker out there.

I wonder if Russ made any suggestions.

Ya, that's the problem, so many just criticize with no suggestions, or if they do make suggestions they are also rejected by the public, or are even worse.

I'm glad this is going on though, shows that people care, if no one cared, it would mean they don't care about Ottawa football,
