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.

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.

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...
Our Dline will sack Borish 6 times and he will throw 2 picks.
Good news on Weston Dressler, folks. He received no signing bonus with the Chiefs. Confirmed. As we know, the size of the signing bonus is the best indicator of how the team views a player coming into camp. Now he could wow them. There aren't any guarantees. But Andy got only around $5K to sign...
I see Sprout is in. Anyone else going? Post your section and game day plans!
Not sure whether I'm going alone or with others, but I'll almost certainly be there.
Let us know!
Here are the games for Week 6:
Thu Jul 31 Winnipeg vs Hamilton 5:00 pm

Fri Aug 01 BC vs Calgary 8:00 pm
Sat Aug 02 Saskatchewan vs Ottawa 5:00 pm
First game is Thursday. Please get your picks in before kickoff at 5:00pm...
As per CFL Twitter Feed. Discuss
Yes I know, BAD.
So my question is actually, who will be the first Western team to lose at home to the East?
Fun Facts to consider when pondering this question:
1. Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg all have as many points individually, as the East has in total.
2. All four Eastern teams...
I was thinking, there's some interesting records. I know it was predominantly a run first game decades ago.
But might 37 points be a record for a 10 completion game. I don't recall a higher scoring 10 completion ish type game ever.
Where are you CRF?
Last night on Twitter AD went crazy, accusing David Braley of pocketing all the profits from his host Grey Cup teams and not putting back any money into operations. And then he talked about the Argos operating in "bankruptcy mode". Are the Argos that close to folding? I know attendance is down,...
Collaros is 6 gamed.
Wow, would love to see that energy and ability at linebacker!
Start making for week 6! Two things you need to read:
1. If you appear on the list of players with 5 strikes, you are eliminated and may not make a pick.
2. The Eskimos have their bye week, so you can't pick Eskimo players
Teams with 1 strike:
I'm curious whether the Labour Day Classic and the Banjo Bowl have lost their luster now that Winnipeg is back in the West? To me the Banjo Bowl is less significant of a game as it just another game against a Divisional rival, especially consider the Riders play Winnipeg in two weeks.
Just heard a tiny bit of Hussler/Lawless in Wpg and they were interviewing a hamilton football reporter. New stadium won't be ready for first game, maybe more. Working on verifying and getting an actual link.
New directive in the CFL this year is that the 2 teams playing can't wear the same colour pants. So it made sense when the Riders wore their green pants/green jerseys against Ottawa (white pants) in the pre-season.
Also made sense in wearing their green pants with their white uniforms when they...
Was pretty confident after seeing him at practice that we would not miss a beat with smith going down.
Only one play, but he is already miles ahead of another former early favorite of mine, mr nunn!
Not hard to see his football savvy compared to eron.
Looks like he would make a good db...
ESPN Double Double Commercial in honor of the CFL is very funny
What can I say, but, so far so good.
Helped set up the play action for the TD that Darian ran in. Runs with a lot of power for his size.
Seems to be able to block. Catches ok.
Way to Win the line of scrimmage guys!
Special shout out to george and especially chick. Chick is smart, tough, and football mean when he needs to be.
He just said he wants the CFL to get rid of divisions.
I don't want two a Western Teams playing in the Grey Cup, never.
It's a bad idea, that is how you alienate fans out East.
From CFL Transactions:
SSK add Imp Chancey Aghayere (DE) Louisiana State
Does anyone know anything about this?
Are the riders staying down east after the Ottawa game , if so where do they practice and who gets the money for field rental etc. or do other teams host them and vice verse. I would think a university with dome facilities could make a few bucks on this kind of thing.
For those of you complaining about Josh Bartel and wishing we still had Schmitt, here's something for you: Josh Bartel has punted 31 times this season and has an average of 45.3 yards. Ricky Schmitt also has punted 31 times but only has an average of 42.9. Why are you whining about Bartel? He may...
This thread is for people who have received 5 strikes and were eliminated from the main tournament. We will not be keeping score. This is just for fun, so go wild with your picks if you desire.
Also, we won't be making a new thread for this each week. We will just use this thread as I won't have...
So what the hell was that anyhow
they already closed several entrances on the east side
and they closed more yesterday
fans lined up all down the street
Nazi inspectors padding down every person -like they were expecting a terrorist attack
