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.

Rider Pride is worldwide. Use this thread to post pictures of you in your Rider gear anywhere on earth.
Post the picture and let us know where and when it was.
Post nothing in here but actual transactions please. This is for those who don't have time to be here during the day and just want to see the actual moves.
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...
In past posts there have been posters that have e-mail addresses for CFL staff - commissioner, et al. I would like to procure a CD of the 2013 W semi final, W final and GC games. I asked TSN but the response provided pertains to proprietary rights which is the CFL - i.e. TSN has no rights to sell...
First off, I have no problem with him being declared a non-import, he properly fulfilled the requirements. My biggest beef is that he won specific CDN awards and holds numerous CDN records.
It's my understanding that he spent part of his high school playing days in Alberta, but he didn't have...
With the Argos rumoured to be moving to BMO would future Grey Cups in Toronto be played out in the elements or inside at Rogers Centre?
Looks like the old man is back.
Just heard from Riderville.
An not Troy Stoudermire.
So I effed up, don't hate.
Go this from a buddy in Winnipeg. Shouldn't cost the Bombers much in discounts.

Check out CFL.ca. They are doing a pretty good job these days of stuff like this.
And our local, Regina Ram, Kahlen Branning, was one of four from the Edmonton Regional Combine invited to the main combine.
Interesting, we are showing 54 players on the roster, we have room for another 31 players....Not sure I have seen such a low number at this time of year. Mind you, we do have a large number of camps coming up over the next month, so I am sure we will be up to scratch.
Phi Steward, linebacker and recent signee of the Roughriders, was scheduled to attend the NFL veteran's combine held this past weekend.
Former qb Keith Price was also to be in attendance. Does anyone know how they performed? I watched the NFL network broadcast, but neither of these players...
So was thinking about some of the off season moves made in general by the team and what were best / worst moves. Wondered how others see them. So lets see what everyone thinks, so here are mine (in no particular order):
Ritchie Hall moving on. Time for a change at DC and obviously not...
He gone as of Tuesday according to his twitter
Zack Moore in the one article refers to the CFL as a "great minor league" which is troubling but the rest of the article is good.
I was thinking that this year might be the year that a Canadian quarterback ends up again on a CFL Roster.
The strongest candidate would be Brandon Bridges. He's ranked as the no. 6 senior prospect for the 2015 NFL draft. I'm sure he will be drafted in the NFL and the CFL, and if doesn't make a...
Here's the Wpg Free Press writer's take on today's press conference. fwiw I thought Bryant came off as a season pro - not quite used to the klieg lights but ready to do battle! Impressed!
I am in the PVR season. Just finished game 8 vs BC, in which Durant was injured and Tino went in relief.
Glenn looked horrible, and Sinseri won, threw well, and but for brutal drops would have won the game handily. As it was, defence and the ground game put BC away, but if anyone wants to...
Does anyone know when they go on sale? Rider fans in exile want to know
Jim Hopson's time with the Saskatchewan Roughriders is officially coming to an end.
Craig Reynolds , the new president and C.E.O., took control of the organization on March 1. Hopson's contract...
So it will be 2 weeks after the NFL draft so any prospects who are going to get a NFL FA deal should have one by then.

I was a little surprised when Tristan Black and David Lee weren't retained considering the importance of non-import depth is for success in this league. Are there any non-import free-agents left worth pursuing?
