Repercussions for Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Randy Richards

After a clothesline hit on Calgary Stampeder Tim Brown, Saskatchewan Roughrider Randy Richards faced repercussions. And there were many. Right before half time in Saturday’s football game between division rivals the Calgary Stampeders and Saskatchewan Roughriders, Stamps returner Tim Brown was clotheslined by Richards. Brown was temporarily down on the field, but luckily returned to the game unharmed. But Richards was ejected…

Breaking Down the CFL West Division

In the past few years, the CFL’s West Division has been the dominant one. The Western teams were the ones to beat. 2015 has definitely taken a turn as CFL fans have watched the East Division power houses win game after game. So, you start wondering, what’s with the West?

CFL Riders No Hope

Hope for the Riders?

The 0-5 Saskatchewan Roughriders travel to Edmonton this week to face the 3-1 Eskimos. Many CFL analysts and fans share an opinion that there is not a hope in hell for the Riders this week and this season. I, like many among the Rider faithful, disagree.

Riders Announce Some Very Timely Transactions

On what is a beautiful day in the Queen City, the winless Saskatchewan Roughriders announce a few very timely transactions. The signing of international DB Alex Suber is a band-aid solution on a Riders defence with a plethora of backfield injuries. I hesitate to call Suber leftovers, but he was unsigned through four weeks of the season. We’ll see if…

Where Do The Riders Go From Here?

July 7, 2015

The Tuesday morning after the Saskatchewan Roughriders got off to their worst start in a number of years, is a bright blue one with no smoke. Perhaps it’s a sign that the not recent feeling of being 0-2 will all blow over soon. So where do the Riders go from here? Offence The Riders were clicking at times and the…

CFL Riders Practice 2

New Normal For Roughriders

The new normal for the Saskatchewan Roughriders club, the Saskatchewan media, and the fans is the expectation, every year, that the team will be a contender for the Grey Cup. Nothing’s changed: that is absolutely true of the team in 2015. After racing out to an 8-2 start in 2014, the Riders had a very tumultuous last eight games that only…
