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?

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.

The second time Ottawa had a franchise, they were called the Renegades.

You can have the name Rough Riders when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

I found the RENEGADES name to be kinda of place in Ottawa, personally.

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.

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.

Mrs. JJD has a friend who works for a local weekly paper and they have a radio show, and for their Super Bowl XLVI preview they invited Izzy Jo (who just turned 9) to come in and share her thoughts on the big game.
