How CFL Information Can Make Even Rider Nation Fans Happier

There is nothing too thrilling in the nation of Rider on the surface. The team has a 0.83 blood alcohol level win percentage at the time of this arrest. Not much to work with, to be kind.

Riders Sign Three – Denicos Allen, Kip Edwards, David Hunter

The Saskatchewan Roughriders sign three international players on defence today. This move along with other made last week should fill the recently expanded practice roster to capacity.

Saskatchewan Roughriders Signings: Four New Faces

Today’s Saskatchewan Roughriders signings made a small splash: the Riders inked four new practice roster players who could be in gear almost immediately. Much has been said about the Riders scouting department – some positive but a lot of negative. You have to question management at times, but fans have been far too critical this year.

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?
