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...
It's been reported that during the Calgary game, the Rider's were penalized 8 times in the second half while Calgary had none. Is that realistic in football where there could virtually be a penalty flag on every play?
Late in the game I watched as a Calgary lineman literally tackled one of our...

First time poster, long time Riders fan.
11 or so months ago we were celebrating a GreyCup championship on our own turf. This after a very turbulant regular season that saw us get blown out in Winnipeg of all places. We had a 4 game losing streak, off field distractions, and many calls for...
Wow....I don't think I've ever heard a colour guy so obviously crushing on a team like he is on the Stamps. BLM might need to get a restraining order.
As for his analysis, my 12 year old son was doing a better job pausing and breaking down the plays than Suitor. All he does is focus on one...
Talk about coaches getting exposed.
Defense, offense and special teams. Lost all 3 phases of the game.
Could be the worst coaching staff since 2011, and maybe even challenging 1999 for ineptitude.
1. Glen Johnson promoted.
2. Ottawa expansion
3. Two words - Henry Burris
4. One word - Ochostinko
5. The 3 Green Amigos of Winnipeg

Remarkable now that its an owner criticizing. Will probably end up being fined - which you'll be paying for no doubt. :)
Anyone find it odd that it hasn't sold out yet? I know the game isn't until November but the last four Grey Cups AT LEAST have sold out by the end of June. Too quick in between Cups for Vancouver?
3 playoff wins in a row? There is no way DD can mask our holes and coaching deficiencies if he does return at 100%. Therefore, I am all in for cheering for ABC as my second team...Anyone But Calgary!
Who here likes our 'green kool-aid' chances?
I do believe in miracles, where anything can...
Here's the link to the announcement.

I was watching price is right this morning and saw a man in Weston Dressler Jersey pretty cool I thought it share that with you guys
Today's Doug Brown column in Wpg Free Press
Snagged this from the Free Press (not a pay-site) - as a comment done in response to a bomber article about what else - losing!
Thank you for validating what I said without putting me down. I too am a business owner and I see how things are run by "them" and it makes me angry. Sometimes...
Now that the regular season is almost over its fun to look back and dissect some of the new recruits we've brought in this year.
-Legree - 5INTs in his rookie season in limited time, has the makings of being the next a Lance Frazier.
-Walker - last offseason I was hoping we'd...
I realize there are only 9 teams, but still quite an accomplishment.
crossover is almost inevitable now, my picks for a hope the riders to make it through to the GC are hamilton and mtl just bc the 'rookie' QBs in playoffs
I was looking at what was out their for depth in my FFL and look at what i found. Check the 7th name down. No I didnt pick him up.
Looked online can women play in the cfl?? I can't seem to find anything

I know there was an old thread about this, if you would like to merge it with that one go ahead, I'm too drunk to go find it tonight.
Word is that MLSE wants to host a winter classic in TO, and that would be done by doing extensive upgrades to BMO field. Upgrades that could have it host Grey...
Not sure if this is just an Ottawa reporter trying to start something. I only had the in stadium angle and the limited replays they showed.
What does the resident video editor say? Certainly a game changer.

I wouldnt give these guys a chance against Ottawa.
Worst offensive line in the league by the stat of 35 holding penalties.
The defensive backfield cant cover anyone. It looks like the opposing team knows exactly what the Riders D is going to do nearly every play and finds the seams.
I'm trying to figure out where it all went wrong for the Riders in 2014. The easy answer is the Durant injury but it's way bigger than that. Durant doesn't play defense or special teams so how did those 2 facets of the game take a turn for the worse when he went down? Durant is the most talented QB...
