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.

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...
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...
The story that just won't go away .....
I'm beginning to think this story might have some validity.
Toronto simply has no interest in the CFL and considers the league minor, and one that lowers their own perception as Toronto as world class city. Arash Madani said despite the 16K announced...
Stamps was taken to hospital after Thursday's game. Any news?
He took a wicked hit & was down for a while but came back into the game.
Interesting that an average of only 8 points was scored by losing teams in week four of the 2014 season.
New quarterbacks getting accustomed to their teams combined with some good defense I suppose.
Suffice to say I'm very nervous.
1. The Als aren't as bad as we've been led to believe.
2. Conversely, the Bombers despite liberal doses of O'Shea Cream aren't as good as we've been led.
Willy has been carrying bombers on his back for the better part of two games. Now,...
This is a pretty cool set of wheels with custom Rider touches: http://www.mystarcollectorcar.com/2-features/editorials/2364-showcasing-a-provinces-community-spirit-with-a-charity-shelby-mustang-tribute.html
Start making your picks for week 4! This week is special, because the Roughriders have their bye week, so you will not be able to pick Rider players this time.
Teams with 0 strikes:
Near perfect weather, 30,000+ stark ravin' mad fans, homefield advantage.
Is that enough for O'Sheas wild bunch? Or will Jones' nutbars prevail.
All signs point to a tighty nighty but I say no.
Bombers will come out of the chute like a house on fire, perhaps assembling an early 9 to 12...
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...
Since no one has set one up I will
Go cats! Masoli, go steal a win like it is a Oregon students lap top!
Looking forward to seeing this new stadium and how the RB play at home.
Love to see them win, I just don't see it. Argos 33 - 27.
Green is the colour has been around for a while. It's time for a change, don'tcha think? How about this:
See him a couple times now part of a crew and not the head ref. Good move IMO.

Big game in the West on Thursday. 3-0 Bombers at home to the 3-0 Eskimos. I realize this is a nightmare for some of you. But... unless they tie. Somebody is losing this game. I was at the game last yr in wpg. Esks went down 20-0 early. Only to win the game in OT. So a tie is not out of the...
Anyone know the exemption rules for the 6 game injury list? I ask, cuz I'm wondering about Kilgore. I have no idea how bad the injury is or how his progress is going. But with a buy week and with the linebackers sucking, and his very likely rookie salary - any chance anyone know if he comes back...
...should have thought about that before he fumbled.
#Riders release running back Hugh Charles, along with linebacker Adrian Moten and defensive lineman Richard Sumlin #CFL
In order I believe
- Charles drops a sure TD grab
- Charles fumbles the ball before half time (with what the coaches are expecting out of that position currently, I have no problems with him riding the pine after this)
- Brackenridge unsportsmanlike (sounds like it may have been Macho, but...
Week 3 was won by Drog2000 with a score of 29! As a result Drog2000 jumps from 34th to 3rd.
Rider_Prider and Giventofly now sit 1-2 in the standings.
As usual, if you notice anything scored wrong or have any questions / concerns fire me a PM. Cheers!
1) Will Hugh Charles get...
Have listened to CC a number of times lately and the "the team has to find out who they are" comments have been coming up. I would think with a GM , coach , assistant coaches , the organization in general all on the same page , would not the players brought in be of the type and have the vision...
is this happening? Does anyone know? There is a poll of who should start at RB next weekend with Ford in the mix. Odd? Is this of certainty that he is signing? He was a stud on Winnipeg. Will be interesting to see what he can do here.....would have been equally cool to see what Tosten could...
I would think that the coaches and scouting staff have been busy, but when do the player's practice?
Looking forward to some Rider news, it has been very quiet this week.
Here are the games for Week 4 in the CFL.
Thu Jul 17 Edmonton vs Winnipeg 6:30 pm
Fri Jul 18 Toronto vs Ottawa 5:00 pm
Fri Jul 18 Hamilton vs Calgary 8:00 pm
Sat Jul 19 Montreal vs BC 5:00 pm
First game kickoff is @ 6:30 on Thursday.
Please have your picks in...
We could have a 3 or even 4 way tie for first place in the East....with 1 win each. Unlikely with Hamilton and Montreal having to play in Calgary and BC, but the possibility as actually there.
Feel free to comment why. I've been waiting to see regular season Toston ever since he ran over that Ottawa safety, so he's got my vote.
