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...
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...
Has anyone gotten an update on Scott McHenry yet? I heard late last nite it might be more serious than it even looked.
Looking for an update... Thanks.
east 6 wins 23 losses
west 27 wins (1 more team) 10 losses
Montreal has 4 games left against eastern opponents that aren't Toronto
Assuming they always lose to the west and Toronto(not fair I know but they are pretty terrible) and they split with each other, you have a...
As we all know that Grey Cup never gets old.....does anyone know if the Rider organization is doing anything to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the greatest Grey Cup of all time???? I thought i remember seeing a discussion last year that the Riders where coming out with an 89' style retro...

Full turn and extension to get that ball. Incredible hands to go up and get that ball too. That's a tough catch for a receiver, let alone a lineman.
Nice throw by Sunseri too to drop it in there.
This will be more of an account of my experience as a fan, I'll leave the player critiques to other more capable folks
Decided to use public transit system to get there. Its a pretty good system and I noticed a large group of Lions and Rider fans used it as well. The 4pm start time is...

TRANSACTION: #Riders send international DB Dwight Anderson to #Argos in exchange for conditional 2015 draft pic.
Way to go Milo! 4/4 with one going through off the upright! The football gods were smiling on Milo tonight with that one.

Stolen from the Bombers forum....
We had 2 days of rest on them and we punched them out and beat them down as a result! Do i feel sorry for BC? Not a chance! We are one tough football team cant wait for labor day baby!!
Getz and Taj miss time for various reason and do not put up big numbers
Offense struggles to point up points 3 games in a row
Uncertainty at running back the first month due to fumbles
Bad run D early in the season
Dwight Anderson wigs out forcing us to trade him
Shaky special teams including...
is an awesome guy.
Just wanted to put that out there.
First I have to congratulate dreegking who has picked another perfect week for the 6th week in a row.
Other than dreegking there were 26 perfect weeks last week. Congratulations to goriders99, Jolo, Duressler47, Ike, Bleed_Green, BPK, MeanGreen, Rated_R_Superstar, tommytango, 1millionstrong,...
Just wondering if we have a 4th qb that's "been hanging around town" just in case DD cant go on Sunday?
I was at the Rider win In Ottawa on Aug 2. I stayed with a wonderful bed and breakfast host who is now a friend. She came to the game with us, but was unsuccessful in getting a ticket to the last game. So ... we need this franchise to succeed and to encourage them where the Riders are not affected....
Any news? Hope it's not too bad.
if the Lions lose, fans get free tickets to another Lions game...
TEAM Radio @TEAM1040 1m
.@Bclions president Dennis Skulsky says it's "guaranteed win night" Sunday v Saskatchewan. If not, fans get free tix to another Lions game
Why was everyone holding their breaths? A) he didn't have a challenge B) In the second half every review under 3 minutes needs to come from upstairs
I wonder how often the booth will review a pass interference on a hail mary like that.
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...
All I can say is that he is a target when the D plays poorly but we seldom hear the praises for him when the D is awesome. Sensational coaching in moving Chick around and shutting down the run tonight. Safe to say we have the best coaching staff in the league. Way to go Richie!!
If the Lions wanted to lose as little money as possible for this "Guaranteed win night". They should have tried it vs a team that would have brought in less fans.
The Riders bring in more of their own fans than any other team and that means more free tickets. Winnipeg or Calgary would have...
Probably having a well deserved nice fat cheesy pie right now.
