Calgary, with the black helmets, just doesn't look right. I think they are trying to capitalize on using Ottawa's old colours and taking advantage of Ottawa's absence.

I'm surprised that Calgary management didn't have the foresight for this. Did they think that Ottawa would change their colours or something? I hope the Stamps revert back to red and white, and this would be an easy fix with the current template:

Introduce the above colour jersey as an alternate this year, full change in 2014. That's one problem out of the way.

I'm hoping the Big White R will be on the helmet. IT should be interesting to see the uniforms. Has there been any speculation as to when we'll see them ? Anyone know ?

I don't see how it's Calgary's responsibility to change anything. Just as Sask now has domain over the Roughriders/Rough Riders name, so does Calgary over its colour scheme. The news guys are the ones who should be accommodating the existing teams, not the other way around. As it is, every team in the league is already committed to giving up players to the help. Leave their colours and uniform design alone. The REDBLACKS will just have to be creative.

It is one thing to get some sort of domain over a name and logo, but a colour scheme is much more difficult. The Boston Bruins tried to do that when the Penguins switched to black and gold in the late 70's or early 80's, but it didn't pan out.

That being said, the red stamps unis pictured there look really sharp.

Sask. has no authority over the name " Rough Riders" with the space. Only the "Roughriders" name without the space. In fact, Sask.'s name doesn't make sense. They couldn't copyright in Canada because the Ottawa Rough Riders owned it, therefore, they created a variation of it without the space. Technically if Ottawa had sued them over the name in the 1920's, Sask. would not have won. They would have been forced to take something else.

Exactly. Saskatchewan does not have the right, for example, to sell merchandise which includes the old Ottawa logos. They don't own it. Had OSEG wanted to fight this so-called veto, they could have, but it's hardly the way to enter into a new partnership with the league. Besides, I think they really preferred going with a whole new brand all along and just used this as a way to justify their position, knowing that some fans wouldn't like that.

Saskatchewan may have requested a condition by which they would cast their vote in favour of the Ottawa club, but that's a far cry from actually having the rights to the name. If Horn Chen had been so inclined as to continue to (try to) sell Rough Riders merchandise, Saskatchewan wouldn't have had a word to say about it.

As far as the colours go, no one has to accomodate anyone.

Gee I guess the CFL should have hired you as its lawyer. They really lost out.

I'm glad we didn't use the name Rough Riders. I mean two teams with the same name in a nine team league is weird. Change is good. RedBlacks is a great new name.

I was open to a new name, I just detest the one we ended up with. The only way it could have been worse to me is if they tried to be cool and called them the RedBlaX.

I kind of feel the same way, but I've resolved to keep and open mind to see if the name somehow grows on me.
