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.

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...
BC Lions have re-signed 3 Canadians, including DL Jabar Westerman and receiver Kito Poblah.
Guess he's "done", huh?

#Argos announce QB Ricky Ray had surgery this morning to repair torn labrum and small rotator cuff tear in throwing shoulder. #CFL
just a theoretical question to you all, see what you think.
if Lancaster and Reed had played in Today's CFL..
A: would either of them stayed with the Riders their entire career?
B: would they have played longer due to better conditioning and training?
C: would Lancaster not have as many...
Excellent Riderville Luncheon today at the Westin, Rod Pederson did a good job hosting, and Steve Patterson was hilarious. Also kicked off the 'Celebration In Ridernation' Grey Cup 2013 theme and logo at the convention centre. TO is doing a great job with this years festival.
Riderville is gonna...
No point to this thread other than I like typing "Esks lose again." :)
It will never get old.
If Reilly was 100% this game would be a coin flip. Stamps by 10.
I heard there was a, for lack of a better term "Anti Rider song" on the Edmonton site. I can't seem to find it. If anyone can post the text or a link, it would be much appreciated. I may have a response, if they lose to Calgary.
Wonder if Mark Cohon is point man for a possible takeover of the Toronto Argonauts?
Don't know if Cohon would put any of his own (or family) money into the team. He's been around long enough to know that Toronto repudiates a CFL franchise on their land.
However, if MLSE bites the hook for at...
Anybody know why they stopped doing these? A gentleman at the rider store told me they stopped making them for sale to the public after the 89 grey cup? I've managed to find one and purchased it of the 2013 team and it's an amazing photo. They would make a killing if they sold these.
Time to go

I still love yah KJ.... everyone has bad days, and considering you were on the couch a month ago, I appreciate that you gave us some renewed hope at the end of the season.
Best Memory - 2007 Grey Cup, I think you were looking for your mom at the end of the game and thanking god for the win......
Damn I hate being out in the first round.
Nobody really to cheer for I guess all I can ask for now is that the games are good to watch.
A rarity in the CFL this year.
Haven't heard much of how the braver Muamba brother is doing with the Colts. Looked half decent in pre-season, even developed a nice intermediate drop.
However, if Indy isn't gonna play him might he be up for release?
And if released does anyone think the riders will compete with the bombers...
So we had alot of success with Messam when he first signed him . What the hell happened . Did he even see the field today? George doesn't like him?
There was a ton of stuff on the CFL division alignment and playoff implications thought out this year.
Now there is an issue in the NFL and articles are being written about realignment.
As this was a total down year for the quality of play through out the league due to numerous factors (qb play, over thrown flags) here is a couple of my suggestions for the league to consider.
1) Let teams have early training camps state side ---the more reps the coaches can get in better.
Here are the games for the Division Finals:
Sun Nov 23 Montreal 0 Hamilton 0 12:00 pm
Sun Nov 23 Edmonton 0 Calgary 0 3:30 pm
Good luck to the five that are still in the race.

Its getting to that time of year where my dreams turn to the locker room sale... Yes, that same locker room sale i never get to go to for some reason or another. This year, i want a game worn helmet for my bar, ideally a retro green one. I live in Saskatoon though, so getting there for the sale...
Add whoever you want, but put a reason. I'll start with an easy one:
Josh Bartel. The only skills he brings to the table are the kind anybody can learn.
Man, does this guy need to go. A lot of excuse making on here about how our Cdn ST'ers have been hurt but it's a lot of nonsense. Our ST's have been bad from preseason onwards.
We're back to our ST's being like Jim Daley's. And that's saying a mouthful.
Without McDiarmid to help like he did...
I have really lost a lot of respect for DD ..... he's supposed to be such a leader and he can't play because he isn't mentally ready ? What's up with that ? He's had half a season to get mentally ready.
Many people have stated that it is really a physical problem but if that was true wouldn't...
