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...
So we had alot of success with Messam when he first signed him . What the hell happened . Did he even see the field today? George doesn't like him?

Changes starting for the BC Lions, Wally doesn't waste any time.
Very interesting article and the Lions treatment of Dante Marsh.
After the debacle in the Western Semi-Final the Riders' offense has justifiably come under fire and by extension, George Cortez. A lot of people want him gone and want the Riders to bring in a new OC. The other main thread in the discussion has been the absence of Darian Durant and how that ended...
Big ups to Reilly for sacking up and playing through the broken foot. The guy's nails. On par with Durant in terms of toughness.
Without Reilly coming in for Scrub Nichols, Edmonton would not have held on.
I have really lost a lot of respect for DD ..... he's supposed to be such a leader and he can't play because he isn't mentally ready ? What's up with that ? He's had half a season to get mentally ready.
Many people have stated that it is really a physical problem but if that was true wouldn't...
Haven't heard much of how the braver Muamba brother is doing with the Colts. Looked half decent in pre-season, even developed a nice intermediate drop.
However, if Indy isn't gonna play him might he be up for release?
And if released does anyone think the riders will compete with the bombers...
Based on a couple insider tweets and radio remarks by Gary "The King" Lawless. Its also spread to at least one of the bomber fan sites.
Struggle seems to be based on Wad Miller whispering in Mike O'Shea's ear that it would be an excellent idea to drive Gary Etcheverry to the edge of town (ie....
As this was a total down year for the quality of play through out the league due to numerous factors (qb play, over thrown flags) here is a couple of my suggestions for the league to consider.
1) Let teams have early training camps state side ---the more reps the coaches can get in better.
Add whoever you want, but put a reason. I'll start with an easy one:
Josh Bartel. The only skills he brings to the table are the kind anybody can learn.

just a theoretical question to you all, see what you think.
if Lancaster and Reed had played in Today's CFL..
A: would either of them stayed with the Riders their entire career?
B: would they have played longer due to better conditioning and training?
C: would Lancaster not have as many...
Man, does this guy need to go. A lot of excuse making on here about how our Cdn ST'ers have been hurt but it's a lot of nonsense. Our ST's have been bad from preseason onwards.
We're back to our ST's being like Jim Daley's. And that's saying a mouthful.
Without McDiarmid to help like he did...

...and a bunch of other random stuff.
Do we bring back any of our backup qb's to TC next year, or do we start again from scratch, or trade or sign for a FA?
Based on this season's performance, who would you want to bring back?
Do players actually get paid for playoff games and if so, does it come from the league or the team? I assume that there are no cap implications.
Look for some coaches to be part of the purge too.

Shoulda been knawing on a sandwich too. Thanks for that segment to remind me to change the station from my morning drive.
Here are the games for the Division Finals:
Sun Nov 23 Montreal 0 Hamilton 0 12:00 pm
Sun Nov 23 Edmonton 0 Calgary 0 3:30 pm
Good luck to the five that are still in the race.
Also if you'd like to privately post your picks to me so the other can't see your picks, you can...
Thinking of buying a ticket... what happens at the event show? Worth going to?
Thoughts? Do you think Jones told him to hide from the media?
Had a conversation after the game and part of it was the question of whether its better to get blown out or still be within one score right up until the final minutes.
But from the perspective of the fanbases, it's pretty obvious today was MUCH worse for Lions Fan.
There's nothing worse...
So unless I am missing something, the 4 QBs in this weekends games have a combined playoff game starting experience of 1 game...Crompton's start last weekend. It jumps to two if Edmonton changes their mind and starts Nichols.
I wonder if the league has ever seen this before. I can't think of a...
