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...

Its getting to that time of year where my dreams turn to the locker room sale... Yes, that same locker room sale i never get to go to for some reason or another. This year, i want a game worn helmet for my bar, ideally a retro green one. I live in Saskatoon though, so getting there for the sale...
Just heard from Riderville
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired national receiver Cory Watson and a 3rd round pick (26th overall) in the 2015 Canadian Draft from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
In exchange the Riders have sent national receiver Kris Bastien, a 2nd round pick (15th overall)...
Here's the link to the announcement.
This thread is for the obvious updated news, construction photos, info, etc etc
Eh Ehm, Mr. Taman, you do know what happens when you wait until closing time to pick your date?
Although I was ticked to see Foley traded, we finally got a solid MLB. Over all the defense is looking pretty good again.
I'd like to see as much effort put into our offense for a change. If DD...
While on the SportsCage on Thursday, football writer Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun noted that the CFL is looking to move games to Thursdays (likely double-headers) in the 2015 season to brand Thursdays as "their night" along with Friday. I think it's an absolutely...
@CFL_News: #Esks announce the release of national OL Matt O’Donnell #CFL via @EdmontonEsks
I put it on here that Taman gave Getz more money than even Andy Fantuz. Now you'll all see just how much that contract was for, and it ain't pretty.
Herb's coming out with some real numbers now.
Josh Gordon facing 1-year ban
If Gordon is release by the Browns is he eligible to play in the CFL?
What have we heard from these tryouts? Apart from that "big story" about having seven people turn up has anyone, at any time, heard anything from the Riders or fans on the scene? You'd think we'd hear something. Even the all encompassing and politicly correct, "We're pleased with the results so...
This makes too much sense for it not to be true...increasing the value of the Argos and revitalizing the CFL brand in Toronto.
The guy rocks.
As per Arash Madani.
I was wondering if anyone has collected or is collecting CFL player cards?
Is there any value in them? Where is the best place to get them?
If you do collect them, what is the best/rarest/most valuable card(s) you have?
I noticed on the Facebook Rider Fan page that there is supposedly another deal (trade) in the works and possibly announced this upcoming week. It has been classified as "big".
I honestly don't know anything about this trade but the ones reporting it seem to have a track record of being...

Weston Dressler and #riders have agreed in principle on a deal. Dressler is in transit to Regina. Must pass physical. Could play Sunday #cfl
Just happened not that long ago

Now hearing #Als' presser is for re-signing of S.J. Green.
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.
Sad to see Foley go. A great player and by all accounts a great team-mate. I loved his attitude and his energy. Talented player that made a big impact here.
Good luck to you Ricky and I hope you have many more successful years in the CFL.

Wouldn't that be something if they lost Richardson, Green, AND Carter. Could be a tough offseason for The Als.
