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...
Looked online can women play in the cfl?? I can't seem to find anything

I know there was an old thread about this, if you would like to merge it with that one go ahead, I'm too drunk to go find it tonight.
Word is that MLSE wants to host a winter classic in TO, and that would be done by doing extensive upgrades to BMO field. Upgrades that could have it host Grey...
Not sure if this is just an Ottawa reporter trying to start something. I only had the in stadium angle and the limited replays they showed.
What does the resident video editor say? Certainly a game changer.

I wouldnt give these guys a chance against Ottawa.
Worst offensive line in the league by the stat of 35 holding penalties.
The defensive backfield cant cover anyone. It looks like the opposing team knows exactly what the Riders D is going to do nearly every play and finds the seams.
I'm trying to figure out where it all went wrong for the Riders in 2014. The easy answer is the Durant injury but it's way bigger than that. Durant doesn't play defense or special teams so how did those 2 facets of the game take a turn for the worse when he went down? Durant is the most talented QB...
I keep reading post after post condemning the riders recruiting and poster often holding Hamilton up as an example of good recruiting.
Riders/Hamilton both in the Grey Cup and having their struggles, but it looks like Hamilton may not even make the play-offs...what am I missing?
Anybody catch the line by Forde in yesterday's Tor/Ham game?:
"Got any more facts about the pealess whistle?"
You could tell Forde was going ready to cuff him on the back of the head talking for 5 minutes about Ron Foxcroft, inventor of the pealess whistle.

I fully espect Lyin' Guys team to thrash the under-powered bombers within an inch of their lives.
Given that, wouldn't be surprised if the bombers somehow manage to hang an L on the Lions....
Looks like the bombers managed to sell 3oo or 400 fresh tickets for this...
Right now the 3 worst teams in the league and hence the ones who shouldn't make the playoffs are Winnipeg, Ottawa and Sask.
Obviously Wpg's football program has been casketed, Ottawa shows some promise to go from a 2 win team this year to a 4 to 6 win team next season - if and only if they can...
Any unused challenge flags carry over to the next game, without a limit to accumulation.
Make that 2015.
Jon Cornish is out against #Riders. He's "sore." #CFL
IF THE PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY ....
BC would play Edmonton for the right to play Calgary in the Western Final ... Saskatchewan would play in Toronto for the right to face Montreal in the Eastern Final ... Hamilton, Winnipeg and Ottawa would all miss the playoffs.
If we are unable to win a game with KJ at the helm we might as well be playing Tino and Seth to see if one of them shows enough to get invited back to camp.
He's locked up in the tower of Doom and Gloom until playoffs and I have the only key.
So who officially was our middle linebackers last night.
There was a huge stretch in the game where I was trying to figure that out. I almost though they switched to a 5-2-5 defense at one point.
Thought it was Hurl, but never saw him.
Also thought it may have been Boudreaux. Although it...
Granted, nobody liked the ending last nite in Cowtown - but there were moments that we looked not too bad. Yes there are issues but my question to the forum is;
Do we have a playoff run in this team - no matter if it is east or west????
Most teams in the CFL this year can be beat on any given...
Whats with this guy lately? Takes 3 big pass interference penalties and has looked bad the last half of the season. Almost looks like hes pouting. Pretty sad for a guy who almost made the nfl!

RB Keith Toston will make his CFL debut for the Riders Friday at Calgary
OTT/MTL game was first pro even in OTT (in CDA?) since the shootings.
Lead story on Sportsnet this morning ? World Series , which ,surprise, they have the rights to then Oct. hockey highlights, Chara injury update...
then, oh yeah, there was a game in OTT last night where the PM was too.
I think the Riders beat the Bye Week 35-0.
The Riders should be able to move the ball against the Bye both on the ground and through the air.
Defensively if they execute properly and utilize sound schemes they should shut out the Bye week offence.
This is the kind of moral victory that...
There is a famous quote attributed to Vladimir Lenin: “cui prodest?” in Latin. “Who stands to gain”? Or as this quote is often paraphrased, “Who benefits?” Now I am in no way promoting Marxism or Socialism, but this is an intriguing way of evaluating any question.
An example from the past,...
2 games now we take the lead into the third quarter and now into the fourth.
The team looked good, then collapses.
Kj looks like rr dropping the ball into getzlaf, then comes unglued.
Are we a game away from kj getting into 60 minute shape, or does this team have a fragility that is...
I know the season isn't done yet...
But there's something that I think is a valid discussion
Can and should we trade one of our D-Lineman next year to improve our team?
After we cross over to the east and win twice, its off to the grey cup to play the stumps. Book it!
