RIP Edmonton Eskimos

#1 Post by SpacemanSpiff » Fri Jul 17, 2020 1:05 pm

Like their NFL indigiously-named franchise, the CFL Edmonton Eskimos have decided to drop the "Eskimo" part or their team name. A formal announcement will be made next week. And, like the DC NFL team, it was sponsor-driven.

Edmonton Eskimos are now the Edmonton Elks

Foam antlers are set to become part of the green and gold fan dress code, as Edmonton's CFL team has adopted a new name: the Edmonton Elks.

The football club officially announced the Elks name during a news conference Tuesday, following a year-long consultation process involving team partners, fans and even some linguistic experts.

Team president and CEO Chris Presson said the club was proud to announce its new name and said he felt confident they had taken the time needed to ensure they "got it right."

"We look forward to the season that is coming at us and for that, we need a name," Presson said.

"With your input, much debate and deliberation, we came to the name that we are proud to present today."
