    are the choices supposed to be listed here somewhere...? Or is the site just slow and they haven't appeared yet?

    Re: What Will The Name Be???

    According to the folks over at the Toronto Sports Network the finalist are:

    Elk;
    Evergreens;
    Eclipse;
    Elkhounds;
    Evergolds;
    Eagles;
    Elements.

    Evergolds? I had to Google that term and found out that Evergold is a type of Japanese ornamental grass. So, in other words, perfect for an an Edmonton sports team. Just think, the team could come out on the field after a giant gong is struck and our mascot could be a sumo wrestler.

    Seriously though how could they spend so much time and money on this and still come up with names that all suck. The only one that is marginally acceptable IMO is Eagles.

    X2 Eagles is at least a decent name I could get behind. I would have voted for Empire. I might be able to stomach Elk or Elkhounds. If they pick any of the other 4 well it'll just be a joke IMO.

    No matter what name is chosen, there will be another huge divide in a fan base that has been divided and subdivided over and over again since the hiring of ET years ago.

    Re: What Will The Name Be???

    I'm guessing that the team has done their due diligence when it comes to the Eagles name, cause if the NFL team took exception to it, we could be going through this all again.

    None of the names excite me all that much but Eagles is the top for me

    Yes, and that's really unfortunate. We have a good team moving forward and this branding should be as close to a unifying exercise as there is - though I know many of us will call them the Eskimos forever, as we should. There's a few names there that I just can't see anyone getting behind, but you kind of hope that's the point so that people will rally around the better names of this bunch. Unfortunately, they're mostly bad, so it's not implausible that this could go a bit sideways.

    This was never going to end well. Even just with the reactions on this site, you could see that people have a really hard time getting behind most of the possible names. And we get along better than most
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Re: What Will The Name Be???

    Against every ounce of my being I voted Eagles..

    The team has obv skewered the options so it is only ever going to be elk or eagles.. then take into account I want us to be predatory and an elk has four legs like a horse which is to close to the slapstick’s up the road... so that left me with Eagles and I ****ing hate Eagles..

    I don’t know how I’m gonna get round this team name.... talk about taking my last ounce of soul

    Yeah, I'm liking Eclipse too. You could do a lot with that on a video board and the lights in the stadium.

    I can't get behind using a name from another team. Shows absolutely ZERO imagination. I voted Elks only because the rest are awful.
    Blindly accept whatever they do and if it doesn't work out, I guess there's always next year.

    Now if your gonna change it to elk or ****ing eagle then do it properly and have a bloody elk and eagle logo..

    It sounds like we’re gonna half arse it.. and that’s worse than change..

    You expected the Esks not to half ass this? That's been their M.O. for a while now.

    That would be par for the course for this club. Our third jersey is proof of that.

    I voted for Evergolds. If I was voting on what I wanted the name to be I would ay none of the above. What I think that it will be is the dumbest name of the available choices hence my vote.

    Elk would to me have by far the coolest logo possibilities.

    I thought it would be eagles from day one and I'm sure that is what it will be. (And I don't like it.)
