Former Bull Craig Hodges on Jordan, Kaepernick, and dissent:: "Jordan didn't speak out because he didn't know what to say". He was one of the NBA's finest sharpshooters and a two-time champion alongside Michael Jordan, but was run out of the league for his outspoken views. A quarter of a century on, Craig Hodges is still fighting the good fight.

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.
