Jeff was born to Dorothy and Alexander Hunt. He has two siblings Sherly and Alex Hunt. During his teenage years, he was moving around his hometown Newfoundland for several years with his parents as his father was in the RCMP. He moved to Ottawa after attending the Memorial University of Newfoundland for one year. In Ottawa, Jeff was able to finally pursue his dreams and introduce his own company, a carpet-cleaning firm Canway back in 1984.

His company was more than successful out there in Canada, so several years back was able to improve his business. After being in the industry for thirteen years, his company grew to more than two hundred fifty locations in the U.S. and Canada. Back in 1997, Jeff decided to sell his company in order to devote to the sports industry. That same year, he bought the hockey club Ottawa 67s.

Jeff Hunt is the proud owner of both Ottawa 67s and Ottawa Redblacks. Both teams did an amazing job under Jeff’s ownership. In 1997, after purchasing the Ottawa 67s, Jeff decided to spend a staggering amount of money on marketing costs. His ultimate goal was to bring an NHL-calibre experience to the club. Two years later, he greatly succeeded when the team was the host of the major 1999 Memorial Cup tournament.

The team also didn’t disappoint as they went out there and won the Memorial Cup. He also had a major success as the owner of the Canadian football team Ottawa Redblacks. It is more than apparent Jeff knows the sports industry very well. The teams under his ownership were more than successful out there on the field as they brought home National Hockey League titles.

Game Rules

Naming the Football Team

There are certain rules you should follow when naming football team. First, keep in mind that timely humor simply doesn’t age well. Avoid humor references which will fade away in a couple of months since no one will be laughing on your name. Then, avoid naming your team using names which are featuring references to NFL teams. On the other hand, using a player's name is fully encouraged. You may use any player’s name in order to make a successful team name.

Then, keep in mind that your name shouldn’t appear just anywhere in your football team name unless you want to call your team as Tommy’s Boys if you are Tommy. Another rule you should keep in mind is alliteration. Alliteration is simply annoying, so avoid third grinders in naming football team. Before you choose a name, make sure people understand the reference you used in the name. Other than these several tips, feel free to explore your creativity when choosing a name. Don0t make possessives and plurals constrict your creative side.
