New Edmonton Football Team name 'in the hands of the board now'

April 19, 2021

The Edmonton Football Team?s board of directors hold the new name in their hands.

Even though the franchise had originally targeted a mid-April unveiling of the fresh moniker, that?s not going to happen as planned - per Postmedia reporter Gerry Moddejonge.

According to one source familiar with the name-change process, nothing has been finalized yet, and likely won't be by the end of April. Or perhaps longer, even, given the chosen moniker would still have to go through a bureaucratic registration process once a decision is finally reached.

"It's in the hands of the board now," the source told Postmedia, pointing out at the same time there is no real concrete deadline pushing for an end result right now. "It's not like there is a game coming up Friday or anything."

More on the Edmonton name change in the link below.

lol, I love how nonchalant that reads. CFL hasn't played a game in a year and a half. A storied franchise has their name removed from them. Fans are becoming disinterested as time goes on.

But no need for some sort of event/news to drum up some CFL talk, eh?

Yeh, you would think they would want to announce. And build up the name and the merchandise with new logo. Get people talking. Its not like the teams can use the money.... Tongue

A little late in the suggestions but Griffin ( Harry Potter reference ) occurred to me recently. Would make one heck of a logo and mascot.

Phoenix was another with a rising from the ashes idea.

Doubt either were ever mentioned in choice options.

On the other hand, would you really want to invest a lot of money in rolling out a new brand if the whole league is going to get folded into an xfl league in 2023?  You might want to re-tool as the Edmonton Extreme in that case....

LOL. Good point. Maybe they should name the team Edmonton Exit.

I'm not sure if I think no news is good news or bad news. Anxious to hear something about anything in regard to the 2021 season at the very least.

Nothing else will matter if that doesn't turn out reasonably well.

US news today that 40% of all adults have had at least the 1st vaccination. The catch is how many in the 20-30 age group ( CFL players for example ) will never get a vaccination.
