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...
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...
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...
Dressler's return led to a discussion over many rums about my personal favourite Riders of all time. Who are yours?

Hard to have 5 for me with guys like Lowe, Elgaard, Szarka, Ridgway. ...
As hard as it may be for some to admit, Taman has done nothing but good things since being the GM of this team.
Anyone he really wants to keep, he re-signs. The ones out of his control are out of his control (Fantuz, Butler).
He has brought some big time players in (LaBatte for one) and been...
All you folks with Dressler # 7 jerseys are in luck. Dressler listed as # 7 on Riderville, Doege listed as # 9.
1. Over under on Weston Dressler catches set at 3.5 if he doesn't play, under will be correct (over / under)
2. Will the team that scores first win the game (yes, no)
3. Who will kick the last FG of the game (Milo, Hajrillahu, no FGs)
4. Who will win the coin toss (Riders, Bombers)

Weston Dressler and #riders have agreed in principle on a deal. Dressler is in transit to Regina. Must pass physical. Could play Sunday #cfl
It's BC's guaranteed win night. Let's give them the taste of their own medicine!
Raise the jolly roger!
Start your selections for week 10! BC has a bye, so you may not pick BC players.
Teams with 3 strikes:
Bob Irving @BobIrvingCJOB ? 54m
Nick Moore leaves bomber practice for reasons unknown. Status for Sunday unknown(mind you there's a lot I don't know!!!!!!).
Bob Irving @BobIrvingCJOB 26s
Drew willy hurts his passing hand at the end of practice. Writhing in pain.
Curious. I was surprised it was only a 1 year deal.
1) No podcasts since Aug 18
2) Online coverage failed yesterday, which leads me to believe that the gameday coverage yesterday won't be podcast either.
I guess someone is on holidays, but Sam/Nevan usually do the podcasts PDQ.

i'm sure most of you already know so forgive me if this looks like a no-brainer to you.
for much of the season we have been lacking in a strong receiving/passing game.
why? well we were missing Getlzaf for a couple games. unfamiliar Receivers, no Dressler, and Smith was out for 1 game.
Labour Day Weekend is here. Here are the games for this week:
Fri Aug 29 Ottawa vs Montreal 5:30 pm
Sun Aug 31 Winnipeg vs Saskatchewan 2:00 pm
Mon Sep 01 Toronto vs Hamilton 11:00 am
Mon Sep 01 Edmonton vs Calgary 2:30 pm
All times posted are in Saskatchewan time.
Where do Rider fans in Calgary go to watch games?
I've heard of Pazzers Saskatchewan Pub on 16 Ave, but I went there once and it was small and dingy with a few small TVs and no Rider fans in sight.
Any other ideas?
Surprised that more RF posters aren't following the new Tino is God Facebook page.
What a joke it is trying to get into the stadium. The lines are backed up at least 100 people deep.
The express line (no bags) is a joke it is a non functioning line to say the least. Trying to get out after the game is no better. They funnel everybody out 1 exit. Do these people running the...
Willy was just reported injured. A later report says he is fine, which I'm glad to hear. According to the CFL site roster lists, the 2 Winnipeg back ups combined have thrown a grand total of 1 pass in CFL regular season action. Far be it from me to try to second guess Mike O'Shea, he is obviously...
In my mind dressler filled our biggest need.
Other than him I think we need some LB depth. We have a few hurt. Hurl and Brown back would solve it I guess.
i'm liking our lineup after that though. Lots of depth everywhere again. Might be running short on Canadians for special teams. Once again...
Just a thought I had. If you guys are like me (and I know a lot are), we have multiple versions of the Rider jersey. Would it be a good idea for the team to have a jersey schedule available so we can wear the same jersey as the team is for each specific game?
I was just thinking it might be a...
Yeehaw ... lez git it on Rida fanz!
*I wanted to make sure you understood this thread so I wrote it using the average Riderfan's grammar style ... ;)
7 straight years of wins in Retro uniforms on Labour Day Weekend. Gotta continue that winning & popular tradition & not use the signature look ones for this game.
Riders plan to use a re-vamped version of the 1960's Retros worn in 2009 this year. We wore the correct 1966 green ones in the 2009...
Just heard a tiny bit of Hussler/Lawless in Wpg and they were interviewing a hamilton football reporter. New stadium won't be ready for first game, maybe more. Working on verifying and getting an actual link.
NFL on ESPN @ESPNNFL 1m
From @MortReport: Suspended WR Josh Gordon is exploring the possibility of playing the rest of the year in the Canadian Football League.
Pretty sure he can't sign in the CFL due to being under contract and suspended in the NFL.
