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.

Anyone else looking at making the trip? I've been looking for an excuse to get out to the capital region and tying it I. With a Riders / REDBLACKS game might be just the trick. The new stadium looks outstanding and Ottawa is one of the few CFL cities pain which I have never seen a game.
Jon is raising money for various charities.
The raiding of the Calgary coaching ranks continues.
Everyone in Wpg is raving about the new regime w/ Wadzilla, Walters, O'Shea, Goveia, McManus.
However, as is standard blue bomber practice the slate is not entirely clean.
Both Walters and his new head coaching hire spoke gushingly about "the great core of players currently with the...
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are pleased to announce that five players have been selected 2013 CFL All-Stars. Three players from the Green and White were selected to the offence while two were selected to the defence. The All-Stars were selected by Football Reporters of Canada (FRC)...

As per earlier Green Zone story: http://980.greenzonefootball.com/story/weston-dressler-receiving-interest-nfl/181495
Dress was hoping to hear something this past weekend.
I suppose it's early days yet.
With nine teams, how is he scheduling going to work next season? Also, is Winnipeg still going to be in the Eastern division?
I've been looking for any league news on this topic and can't find any. Maybe I missed it and someone knows. Thanks in advance.
I know that this is a CFL thread, but Peter King of SI and MMQB did a series of three stories spending a week with an NFL crew. Might be interesting as lots of discussion about officials and compares of CFL/NFL
Sheds some light on how officials work, including responsibilities and how they shift...
I am going with offering Heenan a 6 year contract, worth a lot. I'd make a very long term offer to Heenan. Whatever I could get. Def my number one priority. Same offer to Butler. Not sure Heenan would sign anything other than a moderate extension of a year or two. but I'd try. Butler would, and I'd...
Am I the only one who thinks this is a very risky strategy? I certainly understand the concept, but I think there are some fundamental flaws.
1. Ottawa would obviously have no guarantee that they would be able to sign the free agent they pick. That said, there will be no team in the entire...
Very interesting week in Bomberland. Possible SK ramifications....

The #RedBlacks will hold a press conference tomorrow in Ottawa to unveil Rick Campbell as the franchise's first ever head coach. #CFL
Any one know what number he's going to wear this season? I know he's had 7 on during camp and I would assume he'll keep it. I only ask this because a couple years ago Armstead was in camp with 84 and then started the season wearing 1. I know a few people got burned with jerseys that year.
December 9 - With 58 others, 4 Riders die in air crash returning from the 1956 All-Star game in BC - Mel Becket, Mario DeMarco, Gord Sturtridge and Ray Syrnyk.
It would be great to have Kory, however, if he goes, how much do you think we'd fall off with Garrett? While there is a difference in talent between the two, if we keep our O-line intact, will we have similar success on the ground?
"You don't understand what I been through".
Here is the list of who is in the CFL HOF.
I was very happy when Don Narcisse got in in 2010.
Interested in who you think should be in the CFL HOF but isn't.
And no you can't pick Jim Daley.
December 8 - The Sage of Turkeyneck Bend Kentucky, Eagle Keys, is born in Tompkinsville, Kentucky, in 1923.
I now have all three of certain said events which took place over the last 3 weekends ready to be burnt to DVD which I'm willing to mail out if anybody is interested.
Consider it appreciation for contributions to this outstanding board if it...
What FAs would you sign immediately.
I'd go with the following imports
OT Zebrie Sanders
LB/S Markeith Knowlton
TE Dominque Jones
WR Dale Moss
OL Rich Ranglin (would need to see if his AFL contract was up)
CFL on TSN @CFLonTSN
The #CFL announced today that Tom Higgins is leaving his role as Director of Officiating, effective immediately #TSN

The CFL office will miss Tom Higgins for many reasons incl. the fact that he was the only league employee who had worked for...
Sheets' turned out not too bad as well.
One thing to note is early in the BC game the screen pass that went for a million yards, watch Geroy turn on the jets to try and pick up a block. The guy is still pretty fast.
Anyone know when it's back online? Been down since Monday. Tough for us out of towners to get all our Xmas shopping done :(
