Exactly, CRFadmin, well said. I was one of those guys attending meetings and putting my money where my mouth is by buying season tickets.
I reserved my seat in 2008, if I recall correctly, when they asked for the $25 deposit. I assume you did too and that most of the people who did were fans of the previous teams here.
I completely, totally, absolutely understand that you want to market to young people and build a fan base, but you don't knock Norm and Cliff off their stools to do it.
So far I find OSEG is walking the line pretty well. Slim mentions the statue but they have the banner across the East path with all the retired numbers and so on too. Nice touch. And last year the program was all about Ottawa football history, while this year's touches on traditions and such. One doesn't have to exclude the other.
But yeah, anything that might potentially remind people of the gold pants, Captain Crunch logo or Mardi Gras needs to be turfed ASAP.
