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.

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...

Chamblin tells me he is not expecting a change, with Bob Dyce as Special Teams Coordinator. They may add an assistant. #Riders

Just parted ways with the Tampa Bay.
Had a heart procedure done prior to the NFL season. Is healthy now.
Looking for another opportunity.

OK available QB coaches
Khari Jones - who has a good rapport with Durant
Marcus Crandel who has a good rapport with Durant
Kerry Joseph who has a good rapport with Durant
Jarious Jackson - no rapport with Durant
The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that national defensive end Ricky Foley has signed an extension to remain with the team. As per club policy financial details of the contract were not released.*
Foley*(6’3 – 245) will enter his...
Can't fault the guy for taking a shot at the NFL - - especially if he can get a decent signing bonus. With the expanded off season rosters, he should at least get an offer.
But this is going to create a huge issue for the Riders. Losing Butler last year was bad enough, but losing Heenan would...
Came across this gem this week. Feb. 14 marks the 69th anniversary of the Coffee and Tea Bowls held during WWII in London. Canada defeated the US in the first game and the US won the second. (Time for a rematch maybe?)
Bit of a read, but well worth it. I never knew about this unique series...
Now that Chapdelaine is now our new OC could we see another announcement that Lapolice will be the new Assistant HC and Special Teams? Chamblain then could take over the DC responsibilites.

I am hearing they will be announcing this prior to Christmas perhaps even in the next week
but have not heard any speculation as to who replaces Hopson
...is doing the bomber game.....guess that means we get cuthbert and suitor? Nice...
Interesting read - Lawless strings together portions of O'Stoic's presser yesterday (firing Etch) and puts his 2 candidates on the examination table:
Carousing the Blue Bombers forum & found this
Seems to be more than rumour at this point. Looks like white road jerseys will return as well.
Fans spoke with their wallets & the club listened. I wonder...
Hustle - Loyalty - Disrespect
Well, someone had to do it first, here is my shot at the first two rounds of the 2015 CFL draft.
I assume that Brett Boyko and Tyler Varga get drafted late in the NFL draft.
1. Ottawa - Alex Mateas, OL , UCONN - Ottawa drafts an Ottawa native who could possibly start this year.
Mileage, age ....maybe the RedBlacks might want to part with some picks for a future starter?
Found this idea on a napkin on the floor of the A and W on Albert Street.
Save Lapo... just say no to JC
The crossers to Dressler up the middle for 8-12 yards... Save Lapo...
BREAKING: Anthony Calvillo named Montreal Alouettes 'Offensive Coach'.
As if the off-season hasn't gone bad enough in blueville....
Wild, Sears and another old bomber Motown Hopkins are slated for NFL tryouts.
source: tweets on bomber fan site (yeah, where I'm banned)
Wild is a bit too small to be an everyday MLB but he's tenacious and he's a superb baller....

Former Tiger-Cats WR/KR Chris Williams has been cut by the Chicago Bears. Is a return the #CFL in the offing?
I know we won the Cup last year, for which I will be forever grateful. I knew that there would come a time, since we had called the “Going All In” tune, that we would have to pay the piper. I am sure that there will be those who may not take kindly to what I have to say. I sure there will tears of...
