For Ottawa CFL reasons I'm moving this thread back to the 1st page!

This is the post on Ottawa's new CFL team that I started on July 6, 2012 through to Jan 30 2013. Here is  the continuation of this thread from Jan 30, 2013 http://total-cfl.com/discussion/index.php?PHPSESSID=jfemqd16a5quu06emefh9vcch3&topic=460.0

I could be wrong but I  firmly believe the name of RedBlacks was decided weeks ago! The GM to be announced soon! The new team name is not far away. Twitter really heated up on Sunday Jan 13 after the trademark "Ottawa Red Blacks" was found registered! Rough Rider Legend, Russ Jackson's thoughts! Link to the Jeff Hunt interview today Jan 15 on TheTeam1200 radio. Refer below to my latest posts.

From July 6 2012. Wow! It's true! A birds nest caused more delays recently! Will Ottawa ever get the new stadium built for the CFL team? This saga has dragged on for way too long.

So I'm at Starbucks and I see the headlines of the 24H newspaper saying "OTTAWA READY TO DIG IN" and some construction workers pictures on the page as well so I'm thinking are they "finally" about to start digging for the new stadium.

I start laughing mostly in amazement that this even made the newspapers but then I know these anti stadium people have been stirring up trouble for years. Part of the article is below.

"OTTAWA READY TO DIG IN. Lansdowne Park. City officials confirmed that an empty bird's nest at Lansdowne Park won't halt construction as the city gets moving on digging up the concrete plain at the park. Work was halted last month when protesters complained about migratory birds being affected by construction. contd P3.

P3 An empty cardinals nest won't stop the city from digging up the concrete plain at Lansdowne Park. Migratory birds nests temporary put a stop to construction last month when angry residents protested the removal of trees between Holmwood Ave and the park.  This time the city's contractor took precautions by sending a biologist to the site Wednesday to make sure there are no breeding birds that will be impacted by the excavation.

One more court case stands in the way of the development. ..........etc, etc" by Jon Willing QMI Agency

The article. Updated Jan 29 2013. Seems the article is now not online. Below was the link.
eedition.ottawa.24hrs.ca/epaper/viewer.aspx

FYI! In Aussie we have lots of birds. We also call hot women birds. What do you think of this CDN bird or I say Cwoc in this Grey Cup TotalCFL TV show? Candice's lucky bra, Wow! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d77PoFyr_w

I spotted CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon on the front page of the Ottawa Sun newspaper today so I decided to part with 25 cents and buy it.

The headline was "Finally" as he is seen shaking hand with John Pugh. It also says "Council gives go-ahead for Landsdowne Park Development." The vote was 21-3.

5+ years this took! Amazing! disgraceful!

CFL in Ottawa in 2014 is the plan!

A tweet today I sent in reply to people wanting the new Ottawa team name to start with R.

"There is a lot to be said for history and heritage. keep the R.” #NameOttawasCFLteam #OTTCFL" @OTTRoughRiders

"@OTTRoughRiders If naming after Lansdowne Protesters call the team Ottawa Rooters as they screwed it up past few yrs!@EricFrancis will get this!" @MykAussie

A joke/diss at the Landsdowne Protesters that delayed the start of the stadium by years!

Here is a article in the Ottawa Sun today by Tm Baines about the naming of the new team.

Ottawa starts name the team contest for CFL from today until Dec 16!

Here you can try to name the new team. Please copy and paste the link below to read.
nameourteams.com/

Here's the article from Ottawa Sun. Please copy and paste the link below to read. ottawasun.com/2012/12/05/ottawa-starts-name-the-team-contests-for-cfl-and-nasl-soccer-squads#CFL

From twitter tonight: "Outlaws hmm! Kind of suits the Govt bosses here, they damn Outlaws many of em!" @MykAussie
"Same in Aussie though re Govt Bosses/Outlaws wasting $, corrupt, doing jack crap many of em!" @MykAussie
"Yeh, I not sure why but I think Rage could appeal to younger fans!" @MykAussie
"Agreed Myk.Sure do need some young fans.CFL not to huge with the younger crowd."@tiegame

"Rough Raiders" is the suggestion I added tonight to the form. I first heard this from someone else on twitter and I liked it. I even suggested this name to Jeff Hunt on the Friday night of Grey Cup at the restaurant at the top of the CN Tower. Here is the picture
https://twitter.com/MykAussie/status/272157981309820928/photo/1

Reason. Mainly because Raiders will appeal to the younger "much needed" generation of fan because of the NFL Raiders. Black, Silver and Red would be good colors. The R is wanted I heard. Rough Raiders can be used legally. It will upset the Sask Roughriders "a bit" as well.
If not Rough Raiders just Raiders due to above reasons.

Twitter really heated up on Sunday Jan 13 after the trademark "Ottawa Red Blacks" was found registered.

Seems Jeff Hunt needed to make some comments to the newspapers as a result of twitter heating up yesterday after someone found online that the "Ottawa Red Blacks" trademark was registered, refer below for the screen shot of this.

I like the name! Of course the way our society is these days there will be way too many critical tnuc's on this or any name!

From twitter.
"@MykAussie Whaddaya think about #RedBlacks? Could this be the one? "@OTTRoughRiders
"@OTTRoughRiders Interesting!" @MykAussie
"@MykAussie It definitely fits with some the clues you got #RedBlacks" @OTTRoughRiders

"Here's the #Ottawa #RedBlacks trademark confirmation. Filed 12/28 #CFL #OTTCFL  https://twitter.com/OTTRoughRiders/status/290561659964116994/photo/1" @OTTRoughRiders

"@OTTRoughRiders seems could be! Red Blacks some similarity to NZ All Blacks & thus the Rugby & Sth World reference clues I got 2 weeks ago!" @MykAussie

I also believe the name translation to French is important to the new owners as the team will be marketed heavily to the Gatineau and Hull people. Red Blacks is Noirs Rouges in French. Is this good? I'm not sure!

Here is todays article from OttawaSun.com. Please copy and paste the link below to read.

This article was of interest to me. Dan Ralph from The Canadian Press got to talk to Ottawa Rough Rider Legend Russ Jackson about the possible new name, Ottawa Red Blacks.

It was a highlight for me at the 100th Grey Cup to see Russ at the Ottawa function at the amazing Real Sports bar. One of the TSN Engraved on a Nation documentaries in 2012 called "A Grey Cup Amidst National Unrest" featuring Russ was excellent.

Listen now from this afternoon! Ottawa's new CFL team spokesperson and part owner Jeff Hunt talking about possibly naming the team the "Ottawa Red Blacks." He really likes this name.

Jeff also talks about the GM to be announced soon. Seems Montreal Alouettes assistant GM Marcel Desjardins could get the job.

I could be wrong but I firmly believe the name of RedBlacks was decided weeks ago! It seems it will be as one word not Red Blacks. Refer above to the excellent hints that I got!
