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...
Mileage, age ....maybe the RedBlacks might want to part with some picks for a future starter?
Found this idea on a napkin on the floor of the A and W on Albert Street.
Save Lapo... just say no to JC
The crossers to Dressler up the middle for 8-12 yards... Save Lapo...
BREAKING: Anthony Calvillo named Montreal Alouettes 'Offensive Coach'.
As if the off-season hasn't gone bad enough in blueville....
Wild, Sears and another old bomber Motown Hopkins are slated for NFL tryouts.

Wild is a bit too small to be an everyday MLB but he's tenacious and he's a superb baller....

Former Tiger-Cats WR/KR Chris Williams has been cut by the Chicago Bears. Is a return the #CFL in the offing?
I know we won the Cup last year, for which I will be forever grateful. I knew that there would come a time, since we had called the “Going All In” tune, that we would have to pay the piper. I am sure that there will be those who may not take kindly to what I have to say. I sure there will tears of...
The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that international defensive tackle Tearrius George has signed an extension to remain with the team. As per club policy financial details of the contract were not released.
George (6’4 – 277) will enter his fifth season with the Riders after...
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Chamblin says Hall will not be the defensive coordinator next year but has been offered a role. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/riders?src=hash">#riders</a></p>— The Green Zone (@HomeOfTheFans) <a...
Much as I have criticized him in the past, recent years have proven Riohie Hall knows his business. I think the way the Riders are treating him now is beneath them (they of the meat shield tradition).
Taman has learned well from Hoppy that you can't throw too many people under the bus to...
Some interesting stats that I'm sure some of you are not familiar with.
If DD stays healthy next year he will pass Austin in a number of categories.
Just wondering if Rey Williams has a future with the team, and whether it will be coaching, scouting, or management? Ran into him yesterday at a downtown coffee shop, and he certainly has the charisma to have a role somewhere in the Rider's hierarchy. He took the time to chat with everyone in a...
The CIS All Canadian team was announced yesterday. I assume all the 4th year players will be available for the draft. Looks like some good choices.

I caught a bit of the Sports Cage from San Diego today and Rod had Brett Swain on the program as a live guest. I didn't hear all of his segment, but I was impressed with what he contributed to the discussion and the way he articulated things.
He indicated that he really enjoyed his season as he...
For this week’s Throwback Thursday interview, I chatted with former Ottawa Renegade DB Korey Banks. Banks, an eight time CFL All Star, racked up 37 career interceptions, 22 sacks, 14 fumbles, 442 tackles, 7 touchdowns and two...

no, not George ... haha, Pete Costanza
Here's the link to the announcement.
This thread is for the obvious updated news, construction photos, info, etc etc
I agree with some of what this piece is saying. Building for today and not tomorrow seems to be the CFL's mantra.
Sorry if this has been posted already, I thought it may deserve its own thread. Merge if there is one on this already.
Dec. 10 and 11 CFL Management Council in Vegas will include a detailed discussion to move the 2016 season up 2 weeks and finish 2 weeks earlier. Its being spearheaded by...
Another tedious Bubba Brown column about Winnipeg needing to upgrade talent on its o-line. Lots of folks talking about it - nobody doing anything BUT TALKING!
Dave Ritchie once told me that he could take 5 average off. linemen and if well-coached, disciplined and coordinated would form up into a...

There appears to be less and less really effective coordinators and assistants available.
The gene pool is starting to wash thin.
Expansion opened up 10-12 new jobs in Ottawa with basically the same candidate pool.
Too many so-called 'quality' offensive and defensive coordinators charged...
According to the Scratching Post, the Lions requested to interview Steinauer and the TiCats refused. Apparently, Steinauer has a 'no movement' clause in his contract. Looks like the Lions may have to look elsewhere?
