Aww I missed voting (fwiw QC: Musketeers, LV: Outlaws {xfl}, Milwaukee Hogs {Harley Davidson}, Portland Platypi {Ducks n Beavers} & Utah Swarm {beehive state} were my suggestions). Are you going to kill off the Renegades? If not then I think the RedBlacks identity fits well with the Renegades name, as a future update, since the RedBlacks supposedly wear the colors worn by renegade lumbermen.

I'm not sure how long the team will last, if that's what you'll mean. Maybe they'll become good at some point and they will stay in Ottawa.

I can live with Aces for Quebec, but I really think it'd be a better name for Vegas. "Stars" is far too generic of a name, and I'm not digging Hogs, either.

Vipers sounds good, but I'm not feeling Speed, either... I really like the Mustangs name neo_prankster suggested.

So, one guy overrules the rest of us who liked the Hogs nickname?

Fine. I'll go with Hogs, seeing as this is the late 90's.

Here's our first expansion team, the Las Vegas Vipers! The Vipers color scheme is basically the same as the Las Vegas Posse, the previous CFL team in the Sin City. Also, the seven scales on the Vipers "V" logo represents the gambling industry in the area. (Get it? Lucky 7's? No?)

Nice touch with the gold facemask and the Seahawks-like approach to the helmet logo.

 

I would like to see the shoulder loops and pant stripe have more of a snake pattern, a la the Bengals' uniform stripes from the 80s-mid 90s.

If you were making it a point in the logo that there were 7 triangles, I'd try to keep that on the helmet.

Are you talking about the Viper or the V logo? My intention is to include it in the alternate logo only.

Man, those black jerseys are sharp. Hope they get an indoor stadium, though...
