    Hot Eskimos keeping team name



    I hope this is now put to rest and we don't have to hear about it over and over and over.

    Politicians and SJW's should mind their own business and leave it be.

    Good. Hopefully that's the end of that for all time.

    This should not come up any more, but as was said it will be an easy story when it comes Grey Cup time. The Esks did their homework, and it sounds like outside of the politically correct crowd in Ottawa the Inuit wanted them to keep it

    I said on another forum that I'd like to see the team create a 3rd jersey and commission an Innuit artist to design a logo. After of course consulting with the same Innuit groups they talked to in this study to see if they would approve. Share any revenue of all sales of merchandise with worth while causes in the Innuit community.

    Friggin' Love this idea. You should shoot an email off to the new Esks boss about this.

    Brilliant and respectful way to treat it. That said, I do suspect the name gets changed within the next 10 years...
