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.
The Toronto Argonauts are Hosting your 101st Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders...
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...
Week 5 of the CFL season kicks off tonight with the latest instalment of the battle of Alberta. Both teams are undefeated and look to take a strangle hold of the CFL's top spot in the Western Division. Will the Stamps steal one on the road in the city of champions or will the Eskimoes reign supreme...
Im not sure how to start this or where it will end. The Riders used to be everyones second fav team. It wasnt just cause they werent winning. It was because of Rider Nation. My 16-2 Esks lost the Riders in the *89 playoffs ... the greatest team ( 16-2 Esks ) the Cfl has ever seen lost to a very...
I am usually just a reader of the forum, but I a have a question that is on my mind. I have never seen a team be flagged for not properly playing import/non import game correctly. I am sure there r times when the subs have not been correct. Plus it must be hard to police with the fast tempo of the...
Getz and picard still not practicing.
Kilgore holding a football in his right hand and throwing a bit, but catching with his left, looks like just trying to get mobility back.
R. Smith went to dressing room with what looked like finger, hand or wrist. Depalma in his place.
No point to this thread other than I like typing "Esks lose again." :)
It will never get old.
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 know he was in the 160s for consecutive games with a catch, and the Score app is showing 0 catches for Lewis. Is this accurate? If so, was a pretty good run for the guy.
Wish i could make it a poll but for discussion purposes.
First, let me rule out the non-starters:
1. Benevides - no chance; low level ncaa assistant
2. Hufnagel - had a nice go as an NFL assistant; too old plus the hearing problem
3. O'shea - if a canuck were ever to crack the NFL glass...
I wrote mark an email and told him about the relief concert I'm putting on . He purolatored us an autographed football for auction item. Classy thanks
I know this ranks up there with "Aaron Fairooz, where is he now?", but there is a history here as well.
Molsons and the Riders have been in bed together forever. George Reed worked for them back in the 60's. I thought I read somewhere that Molsons had ended their affiliation with the G&W and...
1. Will any Rider running back have 10 or more carries? (Yes, no)
2. Who will kickoff to start the 2nd half? (Riders, Argos)
3. Will Dwight Anderson take a penalty in the game (yes, no)
4. Will there be a punt single in the game (yes, no)
5. Will either coach throw a challenge...
Listen, this guy is a breath of fresh air and i think he's gonna have a storied career as a head coach but he goofed a bit after last week's beating at the hands of the esks.
He promised fans that the numerous mistakes his team made would all be corrected.
Nice to be positive but don't make a...
See him a couple times now part of a crew and not the head ref. Good move IMO.
Start making picks for week 5! Montreal has a bye, so you will not be able to pick Als players:

Teams with 1 strike:
Where did the esks get this guy from? I have noticed him ever game so far this year. I hate to say it but hes a stud on D. Hes been all making plays all first half this game
Weather doesn't look like the greatest for a summer evening but when all said and done it is.......
"Bring em' out,BRING EM' OUT!"
