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.

Rider Pride is worldwide. Use this thread to post pictures of you in your Rider gear anywhere on earth.
Post the picture and let us know where and when it was.
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...
Tonight from glorious IG Field in Winnipeg. Pesky winds blowing in town right now but temps expected in the mid 20s by game-time.
Lets get the first couple inter-galactic trolls out of the way and then we can start talking Gameday Football....
Anonymous general manager/coach remark. Can't say I disagree with him.

Sorry, cottage reception is crappy so I may have missed this. Thoughts about these two signings?
Riderfans.com - my first stop on the web. Thanks CRF :)
DD's detractors expected great stats and dominance while routinely winning. Now we have great stats and no Glenn detractors. Something to be said for the Durant effect ?
Someone needs to have a talk with this guy. Horrible this year
The Argo Twitter guy is pretty active. Last week, they had something going with the Lions. This week, they have people posting things that were popular the last time the Ticats won the Grey Cup.
As bad as things are going right now, this beauty popped up in the midst of that:
Time to make your picks for week 6! bpatch remains the last player with no strikes and we no longer have any players with one strike.
Please not that you may not make a pick if you are on the 5 strike list as you are elminated.
Players with 0 strikes:
Just noticed that Hall's Defence in Wpg has given up almost as many as our own
factor in OT and our D may be slightly better
so at least we don't have to deal with Hall leaving and completely out performing us
OL Shawn Lemon was released by the Steelers.
now that it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that this season is a waste, with both QB's on the 6g.
and all the other injuries and Chamblin not admitting he doesn't know what to do here.
let's just move on to 2016.
what will the Riders do about 2016?
Brett Smith to start vs Esks. CC to provide update on Kevin Glenn after Riders' closed practice today.
T George to end, Hall backing him up, Walker to George's spot full time.
George has played end before, and well, plus harder to push around than Hall. Walker making plays inside and deserves more time.
I have never seen a more foaming at the mouth Calgary Stampeders fan who specifically hates the Riders with every ounce of his dark, petrified little soul... He's all over the TSN site like it was his 6 figure a year job to omnipresently rip everything riders at every opportunity.
So far there has been no public statement from Gainer after a fan called in to a radio talk show to remark that Gainer was "lazy ". Does Gainer need to up his game to avoid being booed during home games? Did he miss some hijinx opportunities during the Hamilton game ?
Here are the games for Week 6:
Thu Jul 30 BC vs Winnipeg 6:30 pm
Fri Jul 31 Saskatchewan vs Edmonton 7:00 pm
Sat Aug 01 Montreal vs Calgary 5:00 pm
Mon Aug 03 Toronto vs Hamilton 5:00 pm
Times posted are in Sask. time. First game is on Thursday.
Please have your...

Of the remaining players not on the injured list, I'd keep Demski, Dressler, Messam and RSmith on offense, and for defense, I'd keep Knox Jr., Hollins, Webster and Maze.
From the injured list, I'd let a few stick around to try out again: Durant, Brown, Jackson, and maybe Kankolongo.
There has to be an old vet out there that would be a more suitable option than the three young bucks we have now.

Surgery today to repair his achilles (the surgeon messed it up the first time)
Regardless of whether this results in a return to a playing career in the NFL/CFL or more specifically with the Riders, best of luck to you today Kory and may you have a speedy recovery (pun intended).
going to start two threads one for Taman one for CC
I think in order for Taman to keep his job he needs to make a bold move and choose to fire the coach
it has to be Taman's decision and not the board dictating to him
thoughts? ie replacement coach speculation?

This will not be a close game. What is your Perdiction?
Pederson must have his shorts on to tight today going bannanas on the air. Must be the new rider spokesman trying to make every thing look rosy. Must get some cash on the side from the riders to try and keep a lid on everything during bad times. Getting kind of sickening hopefully he has a guest or...
