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...
Wally up to his usual post-season tricks. When asked if Mikey Sewer-Rat's job (aka BennyVDs) is safe - he trumped the questioner with a standard Wallyism - "I don't think anyone is safe!"
So say Pasquale - tell that to your accountant Mr. Buono. . . . I suspect your guaranteed long-term contract...
So, just curious, if the 26K at WSF is going to be the biggest in this years playoffs, then how much is it going to cost the league not having the Riders deeper in the playoffs? I would also suggest, as I swallow my stomach contents, that the absence of the Bummers is also hurting revenue. It is...
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.
You came here. Didn't lose us a game and tried really hard to run down Lawrence yesterday.
Thank you Tim Cronk.
In no particular order:
1. Korey Williams - Was getting open today, was our only real threat at receiver today. Also made a good tackle on one of KJ's interceptions.
2. John Chick - 2 sacks, was sniffing around the Eskimo's backfield all day.
3. Weldon Brown - Had the interception...
One of the smartest players in ROughrider history and deserves a coaching position. HIs decision making with the football tonight was bang on. I cant wait for him to teach ball security to our younger QB's next year.
Curious where Rider fans will be going to now. Have seen several thing in other threads, figured I'd throw up a poll....
There is still a tight race at the top with only a point separating Ike and Watermelon Man. GreenDiasporaDiva, 2AdePT & Bigmac1967 are still mathematically able to tie as well.
Here are the up-to-date standings:

Ike 60 83 72.29% 1...
The question about who will be the CEO has to be answered.
He is going to have to accept a GM who has 3 years left on a contract.
Whomever takes over does not have an easy task.
At least i dont have to spend a bunch of money following this team around now, thats a positive! Dissapointing finish, but inevitable. This season was camouflaged all year with a patch work lineup and trying to fix holes with left overs from other teams by Taman. Without the defence people, lets...
If we can keep our OL intact we are okay there. We definitey need improvement with receivers ,running backs and a backup QB. On defense I would be concerned about age with our DL. Finding a MLB is a must. Our special teams and kicking game needs improvement. We shouldn't panic. With DD we would...
We were stunned to see the Riders elect to punt because you risk the outcome we got: never touching the ball again.
Worst case scenario: Tino chucks a Hail Mary and they intercept, which is the same as a punt. Second scenario is we simply turn the ball over, get 2 and out, and Tino will have to...
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......
Over four decades of Rider football, and no doubt, I've been frustrated before.
But tonight I felt betrayed.
To keep Joseph in after the third interception was stunning, because there was nothing in between those interceptions that was much good either. Then the fourth. Then the fifth. ...
Might as well get the ball rolling.
Coaching except for Hall, needs to go. My many apologies to DD for being so hard on him in the past. Our coaching is now the prime suspect...and The Rock eyebrow at Taman for now.
What a mess of an offense and terrible preparation all year.
For background I'm 34. I've been watching since I was 4, but honestly can't say I was really understanding what was going on until I was older. For me this was probably the worst season I've seen in my entire life as a CFL fan. Brutal offences. Terrible reffing. Horrible new rule that makes us seem...
A Lament for 2014
To the tune of “Wasting Away Again in Margaritaville”
Credit Jimmy Buffett
Screaming “For F*** sake!” watching the Schmoes bake,
Our whole Offense as they struggle and toil,
Special Teams look like 6th string, our D can’t win the whole thing,
So mad that my blood is...
Wow, how terrible!
Where are the loyal fans?
Who do you want to see as offensive coordinator?
If the team is going to replace OC and special teams coach (I sure hope so) and possibly other coaches, how does this work practically within the organization? Does HC have the role of building his own coaching staff independent from GM? That is, if CC decides he wants new coordinators is it within...
We're all sad to see our Riders eliminated, but as a CFL fan I'm still looking forward to the rest of the playoffs. We've got the Battle of Alberta in the Western Final, with two very good teams going at it, and an Eastern Final in a city that's hungry for a champion pitting two very hot teams on a...
I will offer to change my avatar to your choice for 1 week, ending when the east kicks off next week.
Winner is the person who gets closest to the score of each team.
I will guess Riders 26, Eskimos 23
If I were to miss the SK score by 5 and the Edm score by 15, I would be 20 away.
With the Blue Jays schedule, Pan-Am games opening and closing ceremonies and 3, with a rumoured 4th concert heading to the Rogers Centre, where to do they fit in 9 home games?
I've done an analysis of available dates and there is really 3 major unknowns.
1. How long does...
Embarrassing loss !
