(UPDATED 7/21) Edmonton CFL team to discontinue use of name "Eskimos"

Recommended Posts

Even if it was wrong, any country that has Maple Leafs can also have Elks. :D

- "What does the 'EE' in 'EE Football Team' stand for?"

 

- "Edmonton... uhh I don't know what the second 'E' stands for yet... but I know it's not Eskimos"

Edmonton Emperors; they can keep the “EE” logo and colors, then have an emperor penguin alternate logo and mascot to help give a new, concrete brand direction.

 

I really don’t know if that’s a good, meh, or bad idea, but it’s something I thought of and figured it may have some potential.

I don't know if Emperors or Empire -- which has been thrown around a lot given that the team's marketing recently has focused around the "Eskimos Empire" -- are good choices, what with the colonial connotations and all.

 

I've been partial to Edmonton Express lately. The (EE) logo could easily fit into other train-themed identity elements.

Consider "Elks Lodge"


Most definitely.

 

It would be perfect if they were an Edmonton band instead of a Winnipeg one, but I love “Edmonton Elks” either way.

"Elks" just sounds weird to me and I can't get over it. It might be because it's just one syllable. Or because it's one syllable juxtaposed against three in "Edmonton." Or maybe because it's kind of a difficult word to wrap your tongue around; it kind of eminates from the back of the throat and reminds me of a cat coughing up a hairball.

I could be 100% wrong here, but isnt the plural of Elk, Elk?

 

It's OK.  Elks can be used.  I mean, isn't Maple Leaves the plural of Maple Leaf?

Third time’s the charm, right?

Realistically, all they would need to do is cover up the Eskimos wordmark and I guess the helmet bumper too.

Like I said earlier in this thread, almost nothing about their branding, outside of the wordmark and I guess the polar bear mascot (which is a stretch), reflected the name "Eskimos".

 

Elks will fit perfectly on the helmet bumper.

In the spirit of the Rough Riders, and best traditions of the CFL, why not GreenGolds?

If this was a NFL team, I would suggested the Edmonton Eleven

Edmonchuck Ескімоси

 

This is probably not a 21st century new team name, but I don't not like the sound of Edmonton Eddies, similar to the Phillies.
