Will the Real Rough Riders Please Stand Up?

Will the Real Rough Riders Please Stand Up?

Here's a thought, reading through the history of the Ottawa Rough Riders, and by default the Ottawa football scene in general.

If you REALLY want to preserve the colours, preserve the R on the helmet, make a connection to the history of the franchise, name the team the Rangers.

That's right, the Ottawa Rangers. A team that played in the Quebec Rugby Football Union until 1933 when it merged with the Rough Riders. It's a name that isn't being used in football anywhere, let alone in the CFL. Not only that, it's a name that's a heck of a lot cooler than the Ottawa Rush, Renegades, Radicals, Resistance, Royals or any other "R" names that you can use.

Of course, this is just a thought for those trying to resurrect the old franchise...

Hmmm... The Ottawa Resurrection. Catchy.
