    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    Some of the better suggestions I have heard that may appeal to a younger generation are:

    Eliminators
    Emperors
    Enforcers

    That said, I am aware that some of these may seem to harsh to those with delicate sensitivities who do not like any word that conjures up any image but calm butterflies in the sky.

    Iím going to continue to call them Eskimos.

    **** them all!

    Re: Eskimos changing team name

    I'm a bit late to all of this but I suggest going with the Edmonton Eskimoose. Keep the logo, keep the fight song, change Nanook to a pissed off moose caricature. It no longer the Eskimos but it kind of sticks it to all those that are put out.

    1. The EFC and the CFL need to do something to make themselves attractive to a younger audience. That goes way beyond logos. It goes to the heart of the fact that fans take the CFL more seriously than the owners do.
    2. That EE logo, to me, represents the Eskimos.
    3. I always hated the change to that straight lined EE anyway.

    This seems like a tremendous opportunity

    Great work. Still hate it, though.
    There are better things in the world than beer but beer sort of compensates for not getting them.

    Start a real war. Drop Edmonton and start the name with Alberta.
