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.

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...
When I heard how free agents would be risky picks for Ottawa, particularly if said players had no desire to leave current teams OR join an expansion team, I began viewing those teams with the most free agents this seasons as WONDERFULLY fortunate. It seemed like more protected players to me -- huge...
December 7 - In 1978 the City of Regina approves a $9 million upgrade to Taylor Field, including new turf, dressing rooms and 8000 new west side seats.
Thought it would be interesting to see how a cumulative video would turn out.
The guy was on absolute fire.
He knows he can do it now. Should be a big confidence boost.
Fred Rouse has been a five-star recruit, he's been a player people talked about as a future NFLer, he's also been in jail.
He knows what it feels like to be at the top, but is also pretty familiar with rock bottom.
This might be a dumb question but what if players retire so they are not able to be chosen in the expansion draft then come back to sign with the team they want to stay with?
Big rumor in the Winnipeg media is that Barron Miles is one of the front runners for DC in Winnipeg. Rider staff could look entirely different next season if KJ and BM go to Winnipeg and Cortez bolts to the Leos.
OTTAWA - More than half the season seats at the new stadium at Lansdowne Park for Ottawa REDBLACKS games will be available for $400 or less, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group announced today.
A range of season seat options...
Here is a great opportunity to remember the Riders GC101 championship.
Found the photographers website who took some fantastic aerial photos of Mosaic/Taylor Field.
I have already placed my order for #7, 14 & 15.
Mods can merge with greenmemers post. Just thought this would be a better title to allow for future searches. So if it is merged please consider changing the thread title.
Let Go!!!!!!!! Riders!!!!!!!!
The bet has been paid...
Banjo music on the Horsemen Radio podcast...
Year end wrap show...
So I'm driving away from the Rider Store after the Parade. Just as I am about to pull away, I spot a black pick up with the Cup in the front seat, Brendan and Jeremy are the Guardians. I put it in park and head for them, Brendan gets out as I approach and he says, " would you like to hold the...
Labatte, Picard, Getzlaf, Bagg
Are we protecting Picard and Bagg now?
Jim Toth tweeted a little while ago that his sources say that Khari Jones is enroute WestJet to Winnipeg. Not sure if this is for an interview or an announcement but Khari has already interviewed twice.
Were we over? How much?
(Explanation For those who don't do "twitter")
TiCats : We were the first team to make it to the Grey Cup without a single CFL All Star
Argos : LOL
TiCats : And we still ended your season
Argos : And then what happened (CC: Roughriders)
The discussion in the new Ottawa coach got me thinking ... what if the REDBLACKS nickname, as ridiculous as it is, was never intended to be the long-term nickname ...
This might be a bit of a reach, but I don't beleive this is any less stupid than actually going with REDBLACKS as the name.
Looks like this Aaron Wilson has a few problems spelling Saskatchewan :thumbsdown:
The Minnesota Vikings worked out Canadian Football League standout pass rusher Alex Hall, according to a league source.
@CTVReginaLive: A popular Saskatchewan Roughrider is in hot water this morning after responding to a not too positive tweet. Details at 6:35.
Are there any pictures of these two ?
If there was a prize for Rider Costumes of the week these two won it but there are no pictures anywhere .
Why were they not on TV . the Pope and Sister Mosaic in Rider Colors ... best costume ever .
Where do I find pics of these two .
Nice break on a news story on Grey Cup Sunday. A$$holes
No! Just kidding! I totally made that up.
However, on a more serious note, I think it's safe to say that people around here are opposed to the NFL being in Toronto and what it would it would do to the league.
However, being that the Riders are on such a high right now and are the "heartbeat...
Consensus seems to be that the Riders will be over the cap (but are champions no matter by how much), but who else?
Hamilton used a record number of players, and Calgary had some injuries. Anyone want to speculate?
And when do the SMS results usually get evaluated & reported?
I lost the wallpaper in the off season. anyone have a link to it. Thanks
After Grey Cup we stopped out for drinks and two of the guys I was with, laughed at the idea of DA coming back next year. "Stupid penalties" ....was what they gave me for a reason.
It got me wondering if I was so off on my assumption that he was ultra clutch for us this year, and that everyone...
