    It's unique but still if you're owned by a major media outlet the least you can do is get the team names right...

    You mean the football universe doesn't know how to spell Roughriders? I thought Priders said that Rider Nation was bigger than the Dallas Cowboys. No respect, no respect... :)

    Even the CFL can't decide how it's spelled. Is it Roughriders or Rough Riders? In light of that I guess we can't really fault outside media for minor typos. ;)

    Ottawa Rough Riders: Loggers riding trees down the Ottawa River to be processed.
    Ottawa Roughriders: Named after Teddy Roosevelt's brigade in South America.

    Well, you can be a Rough Rider riding down trees on a river or an army brigade member under Teddy Roosevelt. Take your pick.

    This may explain it more... Ah, thank goodness for the National Film Board & You Tube ;):

    That explains why the Saskatchewan Roughriders dance so badly.
