Y!: # 1 Posted on 23.7.10 0045.48 | Instant Rating: 3.22 http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Football/CFL/Ottawa/2010/07/21/14785301.html Seems like a no brainer, but then again, why were there two franchises in that league with the same name for so long anyhow? (I know one is Rough Riders and one is Roughriders) What would be a good name for a team? Promote this thread!

ICQ: # 2 Posted on 23.7.10 0054.23 | Instant Rating: 3.85 They're not the same name at all. Roughriders (noun). Rough (adjective) Riders (noun). Riders who happen to be rough, you see. Totally different. I fully want my new CFL team to be the Rough Riders, and I will be unhappy otherwise. After a (very) long hiatus, I have begun to write again. And this time, I'm not alone!

You can have the name Rough Riders when you pry it from my cold, dead hands. It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects. "Well.

Why don't they put a team in the Maritimes? 2009-2010 WHL Fantasy League Champion!!!

Why don't they put a team in the Maritimes? I thought I heard that Halifax is getting a team. As for the two Roughriders teams. When the CFL was formed it was formed out of two different leagues. Saskatchewan Roughriders were in one league and the Ottawa Rough Riders were in a different league. Loosie. Your friendly nieghbourhood Canadian. ---Under Construction--- This Is Not Spam

They have been saying that Halifax was going to get a team since I moved there originally back in 1979. I will believe when I see it happen. (There have been some pretty big names attached to this over the years including Marc Levy at one point.) The problem has always been that Montreal does not have a stadium. You could play where the Huskies play but that might fit 15, 000. It would be a tight squeeze though. "Don't Blame CANADA, Blame Yourselves!"
Did anyone see what happened here? I notice it in the Transactions on the sports page, but I hadn't heard of it and this was all I could find online (for as much as I felt like looking): (from af2.com)
