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.

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.
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...
Here's the link to the announcement.
This thread is for the obvious updated news, construction photos, info, etc etc
For some reason I can't post the link but check it out. The guy who posts CFL games goes by the name of Newton Minnow. Check out his YouTube collection.
I see GTF posted a few of these as I was doing some digging myself, so no intent to hijack what GTF already posted in another thread.
We've talked about the 2nd down call by the Stamps in regulation at the goal line and bringing Buckley in. Hypothetical situation. Let's say they go conventional on 2nd down and get to the 1. Now you are third and goal at the one, time for 1 play.
Do you kick the 3 and play for OT or do you go...

Notice(s) arrived today. I was confused at first because there were two, and they looked identical until I looked closer and saw that they separated the senior ticket from the others. Have they always done that?
Early bird deadline is December 21st in case people are still wondering.
During Chris Jones' year end interview, he mentioned that all of the guys that will not be in their plans for 2017, will be given their release early so they can find other opportunities. Murphy on Friday sort of gave us a hint saying going into the offseason, 35 or so players under 26 will be...
Not sure where to find the other CFL games ratings.

Rod Pedersen said that the Grey Cup Week in TO scored an 'F'. Venues weren't even half full, and prices were outside the range for most CFL fans.
Of particular note, Rod said that the organizers should not have treated it as "NFL-Lite". The CFL has its own identity, and the organizers were...

The outlook wasn't brilliant for the RedBlacks on that day;
The Stamps had won the West and then they’d blown BC away.
And when Burris, in his warm-up, hurt his knee and pulled up lame,

Thank you everyone that participated in the 2016 CFL Pickem pool. It takes a lot of dedication to try and remember to get your picks in every week.
After the Pickem season this year we ended up with a 3-way tie for first place. Spearchucker who led the way most of the year, but dropped off in...
“I was about to celebrate—thought the game was over,” said Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player, who was on the sidelines for the final play of regulation. “We had the ball on the one- or two-yard line. I don’t know, I thought it was gonna be in Messam’s and my...
The only game that even comes close to the RedBlacks upset victory would be the Ticats win in 1986 (my first Grey Cup trip)
Here it is on Periscope TV:
LOL, they were even cheering the politicians.
The winner of the Grey Cup edition of YNOT was danno! danno and ROFLMAO were the only two who thought Ottawa would win, but danno took the week by 1 point and jumped into 2nd place.
The full year YNOT champion (....drumroll....) is johndryden! Congrats!
Although the lead was pretty safe at...
Have a listen and enjoy! Just Alex, Steve, and Amy this week talking the Grey Cup game and more Riders news.
(Apologies if this should be posted in the MLS/CFL changes thread rather than in its own thread.)
TL;DR - The league should put its support behind Black Lives Matter, the military's involvement may be unsavoury to some potential fans and...
Grey Cup Edmonton - Riders vs Als
Sorry didn't know how to insert photo so you wouldn't need to click on it. Maybe mods can assist.
By the end of the day either Bo Levi or Henry will be hoisting the cup. Gross.
Another playoff choke by the stamps!
