    Ottawa Fan Chat

    Realize the team will not start till next season, there must be some early excitment there as to your new Stadium and New team.
    Maybe you guys are looking forward to some of the players that you will be able to choose from.

    Any Thoughts?

    Just heard your name is going to be RedBlacks.....Sounds more like a Rugby team. Where ever did you guys come up with that?????

    If we can get the All Blacks from down under here we'd have a rather punishing match of it...LOL.

    Can't go back to the Roughriders and the Renegades name wasn't really liked so there had to be a change. I like the RedBlacks as a name, it does sound like a rugby name but thats where football came from so it works for me.

    Is there any significance to the colors?

    Yeah, the Roughrider colors were always red and black. Seems to be the colors of Ottawa teams, the Senators have the same color scheme.

    Nice to see some back and forth. I get the colors idea and it will be better than having 2 teams called the Roughriders, no matter how you spell it. Call them what you want, just nice to get another team in this league and I hope the Maritimes are next for 10 teams.

    How is the stadium coming along?

    I like the name and logo too. It's actually pretty smart if you look at it closely.

    In French it works really well -- Le Rouge et Noir d'Ottawa (the Red and Black from Ottawa, like people say "Green and Gold" from Edmonton

    Look at the logo:

    - sawblade surrounds the entire logo - lumber heritage but subtle, more of a reminder of buzzcutting through a defence
    - red "O" in the design for Ottawa
    - red and black is the most common colour scheme of a lumberjack shirt

    And definitely, it sounds like a rugby name which is also a throwback idea.

    Saw announcement on TV , did not sound like RedBlacks was a hit. More boo's than cheers. Did you guys not at least survey the fans as to what they liked, because it didn't seem they were too impressed.

    The Redblacks had the expansion draft today. Kevin Glenn and Thomas Demarco are the qb's who were taken. Many of the players taken are guys we haven't really heard of, should be a good chance for some of them to get a chance.
