    Keeping the EE look the logo could be easily modified into G (Green and Gold)

    We’re cheering fight, fight, fight on Edmonton
    We’re marching right, right, right on Edmonton
    We’re charging down the field for all to see
    And shouting rah, rah, rah, fight on to victory
    We’re fighting on ‘til every game is won
    The green and gold is bold and when we’re done
    We’ll tell the world we’re proud of Edmonton
    And the Edmonton Green and Gold.
    I am actually thinking that of all the names suggested I like the Edmonton Empire the best. They already use it in a lot of their marketing campaigns so it wouldn't be as much of a change. I've heard estimates that it will cost the club $1 million dollars to rebrand and that's money that they can ill afford to lose especially in these times so if they can make use of an existing brand somehow to help keep costs down it might be worth it...plus we can replace the polar bear mascot with a Storm Trooper so that might be cool.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    I like the Golden Eagles name better than the Elks.

    The name Elks just makes me of think of a a club that meets in a lodge or something. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    When I think of the Edmonton Eskimos I think of a football team and not of Inuits. It's too bad we couldn't just tell those who search for something to be offended about to get over themselves. As you can tell I'm not in favor of a name change. Social media is the curse of mankind or I suppose I should say humankind.

    Nice work Bone. It does show that the overall integrity of the iconic EE logo can be maintained while not restricting things to words starting with E and E.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    I really hope they pick an ORIGINAL name. A lot of these mentioned are sued already or goofy sounding.
    If we were put on this earth to help others, what were the others put on earth for?

    That would be nice, that said, i don’t think there are a lot of creative minds in the organization. Our third jersey is evidence of that.

    For me the Edmonton Empire, Edmonton Eagles, or Edmonton Elk (or Elks) would all be ok. But IMO at least I really don't want the logo messed with in any way so I would be disappointed if they went with the Green and Gold (or GreenGolds if they wanted to copy the RedBlacks) or Golden Eagles or anything that messes with the logo but I see that some would be ok with a slight variation on the traditional double EE and I respect that opinion even though I would strongly disagree with it.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    I like the end of Jones’ column, where he describes Dief’s suggestion of the double E meaning “Ever Excellent”. Brings my thought to a possible monicker being that of “Edmonton Excellence”. Keeps the double E logo, along with a three syllable substitute.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    For a little levity in a serious conversation my totally tongue-in-cheek name that incorporates the EE and is as Canadian as can be is the Edmonton Eh.

    Who do you cheer for? Edmonton Eh!
    Go Eh!
    Sack him Eh!
    Deeeee-fence Eh!

    Maybe the mini donuts could be called "Eh-holes".

    Blech. What does that even mean for a team name?

    The only Edmonton connection is that Hugh Campbell left the Esks to become LA Express' first coach. He lasted one year. The USFL not much longer.

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    To be honest there is probably about an 80% chance I will hate the new team name.

    Also, please for the love of all that is holy do not get some marketing firm to come up with name and logo.

    Maybe someone should start a thread taking a poll on what the new team name should be. Painful I know but since this seems inevitable its a topic that I think warrants discussion and a straw vote. Of all the names suggested so far my vote would be for The Edmonton Empire.

    I thought that I saw a mention in the Jones article to the possibility of a name the team contest. I don't know if this is actually something that is being considered though.

    My preference would be that they just announce the new name at the same time that they officially announce that the Eskimos name is gone so that this issue can finally be put to rest and we can get on to not playing football. Like you, my preference would be for the new name would be Empire although I could also live with Golden Eagles. I don't like the Elks name and Express just seems like a weird name for a team IMHO.
