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.

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...
Wow, would love to see that energy and ability at linebacker!
Was pretty confident after seeing him at practice that we would not miss a beat with smith going down.
Only one play, but he is already miles ahead of another former early favorite of mine, mr nunn!
Not hard to see his football savvy compared to eron.
Looks like he would make a good db...
Collaros is 6 gamed.
I'm curious whether the Labour Day Classic and the Banjo Bowl have lost their luster now that Winnipeg is back in the West? To me the Banjo Bowl is less significant of a game as it just another game against a Divisional rival, especially consider the Riders play Winnipeg in two weeks.
New directive in the CFL this year is that the 2 teams playing can't wear the same colour pants. So it made sense when the Riders wore their green pants/green jerseys against Ottawa (white pants) in the pre-season.
Also made sense in wearing their green pants with their white uniforms when they...
ESPN Double Double Commercial in honor of the CFL is very funny
What can I say, but, so far so good.
Helped set up the play action for the TD that Darian ran in. Runs with a lot of power for his size.
Seems to be able to block. Catches ok.

Does anyone know anything about this?
Are the riders staying down east after the Ottawa game , if so where do they practice and who gets the money for field rental etc. or do other teams host them and vice verse. I would think a university with dome facilities could make a few bucks on this kind of thing.
For those of you complaining about Josh Bartel and wishing we still had Schmitt, here's something for you: Josh Bartel has punted 31 times this season and has an average of 45.3 yards. Ricky Schmitt also has punted 31 times but only has an average of 42.9. Why are you whining about Bartel? He may...
I noticed he had a really nice block on Ford's 20 yard TD. Checked the roster on Riderville and couldn't find him
Start making picks for week 5! Montreal has a bye, so you will not be able to pick Als players:

Anybody else listen to the CKRM broadcast at the game? I love the sideline reports, injury reports etc.
The last few years I have been taking my iPod which only has FM radio (no AM) to the Rider games, as there was an FM frequency that I could pick it up while at Taylor Field. iPod is very...
Congratulations to dreegking and nate_1stdown for picking perfect weeks last week.

Is this guy now just a back-up on the Esks' D ? If so - would he be available in a trade deal?
Have to think he might be able to help several CFL defences - like the Bummers, Ottawa, Argos, Stamps, Ticats ... anybody else ? Any CFL teams on the phone to Mr. Ed to inquire about this? 2nd...
The new digital boards on the side lines are nice but I'd like to see more stats on them. For the most part they are all advertising. I noticed that they were closer to the bench area than they were last week. Really forcing the visiting team to stay in the area they are supposed to.
Per previous posts I think we're doing alright considering the amount of turn over we had in the off season.
New players will grow into thier roles and become more consistent as they become more familiar in the offensive/defensive playbooks.
Younger players will either play them selves on or...
In keeping with bomber policy of secrecy overlying stealth Bomber coach Mike O'Shea said bomber OL Chris Greaves (prolly bombers best overall o-lineman) will be out "weeks".
Of course, this differed from the post game comments where O'Shea said Greaves was a tough dude and might be out a game -...

#Raiders signed RB Kory Sheets.
Total blank here. Someone fill me in on this guy.
Have I got this right? Seems a bit light.
105 yards per game.
Doesn't seem to matter who plays, though I'd sure like to settle on someone.
Saw him get in as a fullback quite a bit early. I can't say how he did the whole game, but he completely eliminated Carter on that first run outside by Ford.
I figured that with Messam, Moore, and McHenry on the 46 one of them would sit, but it was very surprising when I heard it was McHenry.
Thought Hurl looked like a different player last night, involved, around the ball, I might have been sizing up the box a little early on this guy. Other than the one bad whiff I thought Peters played better as well.
