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.

For those in the area who haven't seen it, it well worth it. From what I understand this is the last time Colleen will be performing it in those cities
Rider Pride is worldwide. Use this thread to post pictures of you in your Rider gear anywhere on earth.
Post the picture and let us know where and when it was.

Crazy thought, why not dress Sims as 3rd string QB plus the change-up RB? This gets Allen and Messam in there as more of the pounders, and Sims as a change-up. The added touch is that the D would have to respect his arm and it might give him some more room on a sweep. If it showed promise it...
Easy to see why this guy has the respect of his players. The jury is out to see if he cut out for the "Top Job", but 9 games will tell that story. For now, I like the way he speaks.
Those two are so obvious...I wanna see some different ones by Rider fans.
I'll start with this classic...

First off, gotta say that I do like that rule change. It has added a much needed variable into what has been a mundane, automatic play for decades....
Having said that...I'm at a loss as to why CFL teams are not going for this more. Especially considering the fact that kickers are having...
... going to happen this year for the fist time.
Montreal or Ottawa to go West to play in the semi ? ;o) Either might be able to win that game.
What is there for solid GM candidates? Murphy? Any wildcard names?
This is a much more important position than HC IMO.
As I posted later, Lawless thinks ET will be the next GM of the Riders.
I see Winnipeg and B.C with only 3 wins, if we take both against Winnipeg are we actually still in the playoff picture?

Try this to settle your Rider nerves!!
A lot of people were upset with Taman for letting Cato get away, perhaps rightly so. However, after sustaining a hip injury and being replaced by Tanner Marsh in the Als recent win over the Ti-Cats, Cato has now left the team to attend to a family matter back in the States. Popp says he's not sure...
Unlike some people who are relishing the fact that Cory and BT got fired I am not. While I do think a change was needed, I can never and will never exalt over 2 men losing their jobs 2 years removed from winning The Grey Cup.
No fan knows how much time and energy is put into being a GM and a...
He made one mistake, paid his dues & loves Saskatchewan so much that he kept his family here. One look at the Ticats roster & I say give him another shot with two stipulations in his contract that state he can't trade the marquee QB or participate in social media.

@ArashMadani: BREAKING: Have learned both head coach Corey Chamblin and GM Brendan Taman have been fired in Sask. Decision just came down tonight. #CFL
WHo is all coming to Winnipeg for Banjo bowl now that it is on a Saturday?
And does anyone know if riderville or what ever it is called is doing anything before the game.
You brought us the greatest moment in Roughrider history - it will never be forgotten... Your tenure as GM of the Riders will be looked upon very favourably years from now... see you in the Plaza.
Does anyone HONESTLY expect that much to change?
In my mind, it will be status quo until O'Day is named perma GM and we have a new HC in place. Honestly, with Chamblin having his hand in everything I'm not really sure what will change without a new game plan, and that requires a new head coach....
Just curious where the popular vote is.
Noticed this beauty of a line in an article today http://www.leaderpost.com/touch/story.html?id=11333913
Dan Clark has been a rare bright spot this year. His run blocking and snaps have been on point. Pass protection a bit up and down but to say he hasn't come close to replacing Picard sounds...
