RedBlacks new CFL franchise
OTTAWA – The RedBlacks are Ottawa’s newest CFL franchise.
The Ottawa franchise group officially unveiled its name and logo Saturday amid much fanfare, a year before the team will take to the field at a brand new stadium at Landsdowne Park.
The colors and large “R” in the logo, images that were leaked online last month, are reminiscent of the defunct Rough Riders franchise, while the circular saw blade ties into Ottawa’s lumber history.
