It is a little late now to start claiming ownership of the name after sharing it for 38 years. Prior to the CFL forming in 1958 the teams were members of separate rugby unions and hence any claims that “we had it first” are moot. If Saskatchewan as an organization tries to prevent the return of the Ottawa Rough Riders name, they are doing a disservice to over 100 years of tradition in Ottawa and the history of the CFL.
