OTTAWA - As the cranes lowered the new "TD Place" sign onto the still-under-construction scoreboard Monday afternoon, the football team practicing below was working on ways to live up to that billing.

Since scoring three touchdowns in their very first quarter of play -- when nobody had any idea of their schemes and tendencies -- the RedBlacks have crossed the goal line just once in their last seven 15-minute segments.

By week's end, when they make their home debut against the Toronto Argos, they hope to turn TD Place into their own touchdown place.
