The Ottawa Rough Riders were a Canadian Football League team based in Ottawa, Ontario, founded in 1876. One of the oldest and longest lived professional sports teams in North America, the Rough Riders won the Grey Cup championship nine times. Their most dominant era was the 1960s and 1970s, a period in which they won five Grey Cups. The team's fortunes waned in the 1980s and 1990s and they ultimately ceased operations following the 1996 season. Five years later, a new CFL team known as the Ottawa Renegades was founded, though this was suspended indefinitely in 2006; as of 2010 a new Ottawa Canadian Football League team has been announced.

Famous quotes containing the words riders and/or rough:
“There where the course is,
Delight makes all of the one mind,
The riders upon the galloping horses,
The crowd that closes in behind....”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“But this rough magic
I here abjure, and when I have required
Some heavenly musicwhich even now I do
To work mine end upon their senses that
This airy charm is for, Ill break my staff,
Bury it certain fathoms in the earth,
And deeper than did ever plummet sound
Ill drown my book.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
