This is the main discussion board. This forum is for dicussion about the CFL, and more specifically the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
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...
Event is all ages and free. I believe it runs 4 to 7. I hope to get there at 5ish unless Westjet lets me down :)
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.

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...

Green is the Colour!
I wonder why Tosten sat on the PR for 16 games this season while Charles and Ford were brought in and cut during the season.
Seems to be that they wasted around $35K or so of salary cap shuffling the running backs in and out of the lineup.
I wonder how much more money has been wasted this...
Wow....I don't think I've ever heard a colour guy so obviously crushing on a team like he is on the Stamps. BLM might need to get a restraining order.
As for his analysis, my 12 year old son was doing a better job pausing and breaking down the plays than Suitor. All he does is focus on one...
Start Joseph... when he tires out at the end of the half, stick in Sunseri, the second half hero.
Problem solved, grey cup in back pocket... Stampeder and Eskimo tears in their beers...

RB Keith Toston will make his CFL debut for the Riders Friday at Calgary
Talk about coaches getting exposed.
Defense, offense and special teams. Lost all 3 phases of the game.
Could be the worst coaching staff since 2011, and maybe even challenging 1999 for ineptitude.
Someone has to bring it up... I will take the heat, looks much better then Durant. Cortez is letting KJ throw, receivers looks good, minus getzlaf.
This 100% shows that Cortez and the receivers are not the issue...
Durant is alright, but he's not as good as you all seem to think.
I guess cutting Ford, Reily and the unknown QB didnt motivate the troops.
So who gets the motivational ax this week?
Doesnt look like there were much fire left in the 4th quarter.
If we are unable to win a game with KJ at the helm we might as well be playing Tino and Seth to see if one of them shows enough to get invited back to camp.
Joseph looks great. I'm a Durant fan but haven't seen him make throws like that all year! If Joseph can keep it up we'll be hard to beat in the playoffs!
I wouldnt give these guys a chance against Ottawa.
Worst offensive line in the league by the stat of 35 holding penalties.
The defensive backfield cant cover anyone. It looks like the opposing team knows exactly what the Riders D is going to do nearly every play and finds the seams.
We have a defensive line that can bring it but we are not drawing offensive holding calls . In contrast our most decorated offensive lineman is among the leagues most penalized.
I think mu daughter could kickoff farther than Milo! And punt better than Bartel!!
In the pregame ceremonies today, I noticed Ottawa had both teams on the same sideline. Hamilton is the same way. Was Frank Clair like that? I understood Ivor Wynn being that way with limited space but why put it in their new stadium?
With players, coaches, injured players, trainers etc etc...
Calgary manhandled the Riders as if some kid was playing Madden on his Playstation. Holy shite.
He may be an untouchable on the roster, but he has not helped this team at all lately.
Any unused challenge flags carry over to the next game, without a limit to accumulation.
Make that 2015.
Jon Cornish is out against #Riders. He's "sore." #CFL
Costly pass interference and holding penalties changed the game. On the other side of the ball , avoiding penalties and capitalizing on Rider miscues was key.
Does anyone anywhere call Saskatchewan this other than the nobs on TSN? Incredibly irritating. Right up there with Greenies, Roughies, and Green Riders. Aaargh
Special teams, fail.
Defense that used to win us games...
It could be worse, but I'm not sure how right now.
Does anyone else think that our Canadian talent has dropped slowly over the past few years. I know we still have some very skilled Canadians on this team but I don't think we are as strong in this department. Thoughts?
Why can't Hall's D stop anybody in the last minute of a game or a half?
