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...
You have all been served
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...
Now that the Esks have released their new t-shirt/jersey, it's time for us to rank them all... but let's do separate rankings for the jerseys and the helmets...
As if anyone needed another example of why Durant is an elite franchise QB. Playing through an injured throwing hand - - just as he played through a broken rib last year - - and comes through in the clutch.
Just does whatever it takes to win - - whether it's a beautiful TD bomb to Taj or a...
Bomber fans have to be the absolute worst for blaming officials for their losses.
Yes there were missed holds and offside calls against the Riders, but there also missed holds and illegal blocks on returns against the Bombers.
They complain about missed penalties leading to points for us...
Who ya got???
Ottawa signed Joey Elliott to their practice roster yesterday, along with their 2nd round pick from 2013, Kalonji Kashama, who was recently cut by the Detroit Lions.
I also see on the REDBLACKS website that they are hosting open tryouts in October!
And in other news, the Eskimos acquired...
Checking out reviews of those who were at the opening game today on the Ti-Cats forum, looks like the new stadium exceeded expectations for most.
Many of the posters commented on how loud it was, & it was only 3/4 full with 18k there...
The stank east made it a little tougher this week by actually winning some games (they're playing themselves).
Riders playoff magic number is 5 (for a cross over).
Western magic number is 6.
This assumes Montreal is the 3rd place team in the east.
Well... that's something.
Personal use amount of cocaine and some items from a Best Buy and a Walmart in Arizona.
Here are the games for this week:
Fri Sept 05 BC vs Ottawa 5:30 pm
Sat Sept 06 Calgary vs Edmonton 5:00 pm
Sun Sept 07 Hamilton vs Montreal 11:00 am
Sun Sept 07 Saskatchewan vs Winnipeg 2:00 pm
First game is Friday. All times posted are in Saskatchewan time.
Please have your...
I really hate to say it. But its true. Look at the YAC yards, the holes cornhole gets to run through, the steamboats bovine mitchell gets to pass the ball, and the wide receivers's blocking. Impressive.
as per my riders app
Who ya got???
Zach is back but is that enough to put the Ticats over the top to beat the Argos....sure, why not.
Finally people are beginning to realize what a fraud this guy really is.
It's laughable to think back to the apologists who insisted Braley was the saviour who was going to transform the Argos into a model franchise. Instead, the only thing he did was waddle up to the trough and slurp up as...
For the Green Bastages :) coming down to The Peg here's a list of events so far.
Fan Appreciation Day at IGF on Saturday starts at 10am. There's a walk through practice then an autograph session and fan activities in tailgating area outside the stadium at Chancellor Matheson and University...
Whenever Peg has a good team the tides always seem to turn. And as much as they aren't great. They are indeed good. What are the odds folks? I'm saying 2:1 in favour of Peg. It's just the way it goes it seems.
Who would you want as the Riders QB if you could pick one right now?
According to TSN via the NFL Network.
For the 7th straight week dreegking has picked a perfect week. Did you find a Delorean or something?
Others that picked perfect weeks are Watermelon Man, goriders99, Ike, Stan Peters, nachocheese, TheBulldog14, riderfaninbc, Rammer81, stanthefan, Blueandgold, TomKat, & Gnome...
From Riderville site after Sunday's game:
•Weston Dressler saw considerable action in his first game back with the team since returning from the NFL. He caught three passes and returned two punts.
•The Riders went into the game leading the CFL is rushing yards per game with just...
Yes I know this is an old subject for our old jersey. But come on...after last weekend's beautful sighting, why can't we use Reebok's new designs a couple games a year instead and use our retros as regulars? Front office and Reebok will still get their cash cow and at the same time pleasing old...
Looking at the league schedule, the last six weeks are going to be interesting. Tons of west against west games. If all 5 teams remain this close together it's gonna be a dogfight to the end.
BC - Ham, Ott, bye, Wpg, Edm, Cal.
Edm - Tor, Wpg, Sask, bye, BC, Sask.
Cal - Sask, bye, Wpg,...
Our D played pretty darn well, and I haven't been able to watch many games this year, but it seemed like our LB's are not of the impact variety. I had read much about Kilgore, but he seemed pretty invisible and Peters (although a ST Demon) appears to routinely miss open field tackles. Macho was...
This guy gets a lot of hate from many fans around the league. I've noticed it over the last few weeks through Twitter links and article/blog comments, and I don't even read that many. Everything from "he looks like a thug", to "he blongs in jail", to "he talks like an idiot", even something like...
I've been mocked here when I said this a while back. So here you go from someone who knows much better than you and I. Adjustments occur continually through the game if needed.
"Besides, halftime provides barely enough time for players to get to and from the locker-room, use the bathroom, suck...
1) No podcasts since Aug 18
2) Online coverage failed yesterday, which leads me to believe that the gameday coverage yesterday won't be podcast either.
I guess someone is on holidays, but Sam/Nevan usually do the podcasts PDQ.
