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 know he had the drop, but he could become a good one.
Cats have their hands full as they play the best all-around team in the league.
Through the first 9 games of the 2015/2016 seasons the Riders are 1-17. Ouch.
I believe this is the worst start in Rider history. Even worse than 1979/80 seasons.
Only 1 player was eliminated last week, so we have 11 players remaining! Argos on the bye.

Sask #Riders have agreed to a deal with Canadian edge-rusher Justin Capicciotti, per source. Massive day for them.
As per their Twitter account
Larry Taylor would help out here in the return game and may be worth a look to help shift the fuel position
Montreal draft pick
Another quality D guy and a Jones guy to boot. I would expect the Eskies to have a great shot at him if he doesn't get another look in the NFL. Was listed as the #2 Will on the Redskins chart, didn't play much in preseason game 2.
What do you guys think?
This season seems to be a dumpster fire but it is also the last season before the move to the new stadium. What do you guys figure attendance will be for the final game? A lot of memories were made at Taylor Field/Mosaic.
I'm sure there will be a lot of mixed...

We really need to find one especially for when it starts to get cold out.
Im also surprised with our make shift o line we have not been running more as run blocking is much easier than pass blocking also does not allow the d to pin their ears back and come.
IMO Steele is not very good, never...
Had an interesting debate at a pre-BC Lions game a week ago with some orange and black diehards. All good men and women, no dbags here. Once the beers started, the challenge came up as to why the Riders have been so mediocre over history. Some good points they raised, including only four Cup...
Bombers looking like all-stars early.
Of course good old know it all Jason has removed his offending post.
Forget about the current problems with the Riders as it looks like they are running our Grey Cup wins all day.
It's game day, futhermuckers.
Marty on Line 1
Wants Jonestown gassed. Pay them off bring in new guys.
When pressed, His replacement is Richie Hall.
"Kevin Glenn the well travelled quartberack... Has been there, has done that, has won that... except a Grey Cup"
PI is only when the ball is in the air.
Illegal contact is when it's not in the air.
Two very different penalties.
Thank you. Carry on.
Just a bad team. Knew there would be growing pains but this is going to take even longer than most thought. Didn't have high expectations going into the season, so I'm not devastated by the 1-4 start, but at least compete, show some imagination on Offence and try running the damn ball to keep the D...
It just seems predicting wins and losses for the Riders this year and last is too easy. Maybe it's more realistic and telling to predict the score again. Like past days/years.
Riders lost a couple of close ones early in the season. So this will more accurately reveal what people think of this...
I haven't seen anything to explain why Chris Schultz is absent on the TSN panel. Any answers?
Food for thought. Chris Berman is not being renewed for next year for NFL coverage. I have no doubt that Berman would have no issues getting pretty much any job to his liking for a couple years, but would you approach him for doing something with the CFL, if only one time per week? The man...
