In a recent article (Sorry! Can't link!) Jim Hopson (of the Saskatchewan Roughriders) says he'd rather any new Ottawa CFL team not be called Rough Riders! He thinks there should be only one team of that monicker in a 9-team league!
Sorry, Jim! Why? Why would you have a problem with a return to what is right? You're putting retro jerseys on your team. You're on board with the League's "retro thingy"! You like the extra $$$ from that stuff, huh?
Why? 'Cuz you're concerned about all those jokes we used to hear from CFL-Bashers about 2 teams in a 9-team league having similar (not same) names! C'mon!
The 2 NFL teams in NYC have played in New Jersey for the past 25 years.... in the same stadium for crying out loud! In Eugene Melnyk's beloved MLS, two teams share the same stadium (LA Galaxy & Chivas USA - The Home Depot Center - Carson, CA) and each considers it THEIR home turf!
Every sports league has its little idiosyncracies, Jim! Get behind tradition! Rough Riders or bust!
