Edmonton football team asks fans to vote on seven possible names

 

Quote

EDMONTON — The Edmonton Football Team says it has a shortlist of seven candidates for its new name.

 

Elk, Evergreens, Evergolds, Eclipse, Elkhounds, Eagles and Elements are listed as possibilities on an online survey released Monday.

 

The CFL team dropped the name Eskimos last year. It followed a similar decision by the NFL’s Washington team as pressure mounts on teams to eliminate racist or stereotypical names.

 

Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team has since announced it also is changing its name.

 

Edmonton’s survey, the second and final phase of the selection process, asks fans to rate the seven candidates from first to worst. The team says the group selecting the name will take the results into account after the survey concludes Sunday.

 

The team says it had 14,833 submissions with 2,047 unique name entries in the first phase of the selection process.

 

The team has been known as the Edmonton Football Team or EE Football Team since dumping the old name. The team’s logo continues to feature two Es.

Good god are these names terrible! Which one of the 7 here do you think is the least-bad?

 

And are there any other suggestions that start with an E? There are a few nuggets of gold in the comments section on the SNET article - such as Ebolas, Enemas, and Effeminate

 

A couple astute fans note that it's a good opening to give rise to the Edmonton Roughriders lol

 

Names above = bad or REAL BAD?

Why does every name have to start with an "E"?

 

Are they allergic to all the other letters of the alphabet? 

 

Cause they want to keep the double EE logo.

Why they didn't short list Edmonton Energy confuses me.  Being an oil/gas hub and all, you'd think it'd be a fitting name.

Edmonton Eagles is the best one I guess.

Agree with you on Edmonton Energy.  
 

On an unrelated note, when can we expect Chicago’s NHL team to change their name to the Chicago Black Sox?
