Edmonton Easterners is catchy and sounds good from my perspective. Edmonton Foxes: they could almost keep the same logo. Edmonton Musk Oxen (EMO) would be great, teach irregular plurals, and let's face it, musk oxen are not unlike slow defensive linemen.

Edmonton Rough Riders is also available still.

If the Edmonton Eskimos don't rename the team before next season, the 2018 Grey Cup could be "beset by a very charged" debate about the issue, warns [Edmonton] Mayor Don Iveson.

Lifetime ban issued to Red Sox fan who used racial slurs.

posted by rumple at 01:13 PM on May 04

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Some Red Sox fans just don't know Boston's racist history

And yes things have gotten better, and yes the vast majority of Red Sox fans are not racists, and yes Boston has grown more diverse over the last few decades. Still, recent census results show that it remains one of the most segregated cities in America. When fans say that the Jones incident doesn't reflect the city they know, it's not that they're being untruthful, it's that what they know might be an entirely different city than what others' know.

Tom Brady's 2017 Superbowl Jersey found .... in Mexico. Also found: his jersey from 2015 Superbowl. The team's owner Robert Kraft likened the theft to "taking a great Chagall or Picasso" in an interview on the Fox Business Network.

Acevedo said the jerseys are in the possession of the NFL and FBI in Boston, and law enforcement was working to authenticate them.

"We are highly confident that these are the jerseys," he said.
