Classic Team Logo of The Day

26 Dec

Logo of a team that once played in the Canadian Football League, the Ottawa Rough Riders. The franchise, one of the oldest sports teams in North America, was founded in 1876 and played until folding after the 1996 season. The logo above was used in the 1960s, when the Riders won 3 of the 9 Grey Cup championships in their history.  Some notable players from this era are CFL legends Russ Jackson, Ron Stewart and Margene Adkins. One of the signs that the franchise was in trouble, just prior to folding, came when the club drafted a player named Derrell Robertson in 1995. He was a decent player – the problem was he had died in a car accident the previous December.
