This is the main discussion board. This forum is for dicussion about the CFL, and more specifically the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
We had this on here last year and it was cool. There are so many new people on here since last year that I thought it would be cool to do it again and learn about new members.
To get the ball rolling I'll start.

I am thinking this might be good as a sticky and any info back and forth on tickets accomodation etc can go here. Here's a couple of emails I received from Ottawa and Toronto regarding the Rider games there.
The Toronto Argonauts are Hosting your 101st Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders...
You have all been served
From Riley and Family,
Hey everyone, My name is Riley and I am Wayne Shaw's grandson. I've been a roughrider fan since before I could walk. It's kind of like a religion in my family. When you grow up with the grandpa i have, you don't really have a choice. Growing up, I always knew my grandpa had...
Even though this isn't football related, this is important enough to post here so everone sees it. Unfortunately a lot of sites are going towards the model where you have to pay for a subscription to read all their articles. If you are a paying member of such a site, please to not copy and paste...
Sometimes when rookie quarterbacks get brought in, they have initial success because those around them step up.
Other than dressler, name one guy who has risen above the level he was playing. Make that spectacular catch, get those extra tough yac yards, break a tackle for a td, make a big hit...
@robvanstone: The word from Durant and the Roughriders' medical people is that there's an excellent chance of #4 returning at some point in 2014.
Took the day off and the kids out of school and spent in excess of $1,000 to support the team in Edmonton Friday night. Did not expect a win per se, but certainly expected a better effort than we saw. I don't remember ever seeing a game that did not contain at least one exciting play, let alone a...
Was just a matter of time before this tidbit from Cornish got posted.. figured might as well get it up here and let the mayhem begin. :)
An honest question, I am in no way a Henry Burris fan, nor do I want to see us make a desperate move to try and acquire him but I cannot understand why most posters on here have an unwavering hatred for the dude.
In my opinion he has done nothing but good for the CFL game. He is in the Top 10...
Was just on The Fan960 in Calgary. Arash stated that the Riders made 2 offers to Ottawa on Saturday. The 2nd and final offer was a 1st round pick and an unnamed player on the roster for Henry. Its still on the table but the RedBlacks turned it down. Not sure if there will be a deal, suggested maybe...
..which is preferred ?. Riders cross over and play either Montreal or Toronto in the first round of playoff.
Personally I want to see them going East so I can attend the game in person :)
Probably better chance getting to the big dance without DD (or will we ?)
Not that I think Seth is a Durant clone, but moving in the pocket seems to be something that Sunseri is not apt to do well... where Doege seems to be more of the athletic of the two in that department...
If you can't throw, maybe you can at least run?
Maybe running makes you throw better?
nextyear and Mr. Pilsner received strikes last week, so we are restarting the week.
Make your picks!
If Calgary loses, and they currently are and not looking real good, we play them at home next week for FIRST!! Whats not to like about that seriously? No doubt, we sheet the bed last night, BUT there is a chance for redemption, and for first place as well! Go Lions go tonight!
Here are the games for this week in the CFL:
Fri Oct 03 Winnipeg vs Ottawa 5:00 pm
Fri Oct 03 Calgary vs Saskatchewan 8:00 pm
Sat Oct 04 Edmonton vs Toronto 2:00 pm

Enough is enough. Hard to watch the same thing over and over.
Sask. Roughriders @sskroughriders 6m
#Riders receiver Taj Smith has been added to the 6 game injured list after suffering a broken clavicle last Friday in Edmonton.
7-0 good guys :)
Sorry, don't see this posted yet...heard it on Tsn 1040.
Means he might play through instead of surgery.
Not sure when the trade deadline is, but could somebody please keep taman busy or drunk until then, so he doesn't have time to make a stupid trade of a 1st rd pick for a useless and fading head case qb.
Thanks in advance.
As per TSN radio a trade is in the works that would send Bagg to Edmonton for Matt Nichols
Ottawa's last 6 games:
A win against any of these teams really helps the Riders' cause in terms of a playoff berth.
After the debacle against the Schnmoes .... Is this even possible???
...Nah ... I gotta be dreaming
Burris coming in?
Replacing Kilgore in the middle?
In the end we are still a 9-4 football team with a realistic shot at second place and a home playoff game, and a team that controls their own destiny to win the division.
This team started the way the did for a reason, yes we are hurting and...
Just read in the Province, in a very small article in the bottom corner of the paper, that JC Sherritt actually broke the tackle record earlier than what was recorded.
Apparently there was an error and Calvin Tiggle only recorded 121 tackles and not the reported 129. Soooooo, Sherritt got hurt...
Not an excuse for the performance Saturday but an interesting stat that I think the CFL/TSN should look at when they are deciding the schedule.
Teams playing without a full week's practice (have to play within 5 calendar days) against a team that does have a full week of practice are 1-7 in...
Who should start against the Stampeders on Friday? Doege or Sunseri?
BC Lions running back Andrew Harris and receiver Bryan Burnham had been placed on the six-game injury list following B.C.'s 14-7 loss to Calgary at McMahon.
Tough lose for the Lions!
