This is the main discussion board. This forum is for dicussion about the CFL, and more specifically the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Wanted to get this up tonight in case I don't get a chance tomorrow morning. Keep this thread for official signings only. Plenty of other threads that can be used to discuss rumours, tweets that are just speculation, interviews after the fact etc.
Let's try and keep this thread clean as much as...
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.
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.

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...
I'm surprised Riders didn't bid but I guess it's too close to the last one?

I don't think Durant handled this interview particularly well: http://www.cfl.ca/2017/03/21/saying-goodbye-durant-packing-moving-riderville/. For me, he came across as whiny with a self-inflated view of his impact on the community and team during his time with the Riders. He noted how he...

Glad to hear he's back with the organization in a scouting capacity. At his best in the mid 2000s he was a lock down corner for us. Probably my favorite guy on D in that era. It was disappointing when that Plazoo thing didn't happen a few years ago, but glad he's part of things again

#BCLions in trade talks with at least 1 East team on OT Jovan Olafioye. BC needs to shed salary after free agent spending.
Well figured we should bring this up again. Who's going? I'll actually be in Regina for work on the 20th to 22nd. I hope to check it out. The Mark's website does a terrible job of laying out the schedule so I don't really know what's going on.
What should be done about Video Review. Most believe that is it not working at all in any satisfactory way, and something needs to be done.
As currently operated it slows down the game, creates uncertainty rather than certainty and seems to get things wrong as often as right.
Many passes have...
In case you missed it, Piffles Podcast interviewed several players and fans during CFL Week. The entire playlist is below.
Thanks for listening, and let us know what you think.
2017 CFL Draft Prospects in this weekends Mitchell and Uteck Bowls
Cuz they did such a bang up job last year, let's give them more responsibility!
Here's the link to the announcement.
This thread is for the obvious updated news, construction photos, info, etc etc
It sure would be nice if someone from the Riders could comment on the level of talent that shows at these open tryouts. The Riders have held many of these all over the US during this offseason, but there is little, if any, public information pertaining to them. With this being over a full year...
In light of the Riders freeing up some cap space after trading Doubles, we should be big players in free agency. Here's my wish list:
#1. Derek Dennis. The top lineman in the country last season tops my wish list. Would fill a massive hole at Left Tackle.
#2. Shakir Bell. Would make a...

I have to admit, I hated the guy, but that's just a testament to how great a player he was for the rival Eskimos. If I were a fan of that other team, I'd be pretty sad today, and of course no-one is happy to see a solid competitor and great CFL player pass on.
My condolences to his family and...
Who do you think will be inducted into the CHLHOF for 2017 which will be announced next week during CFL Week? Here's a list of the eligible candidates.
Just thrilled for him. A great guy.
