Labour Day Weekend has come and gone and the home team fans of the three traditional classics left the park happy and some teams are making moves toward the playoffs.

Here's how they sit going into Week 11.

Time For A Rider Reality Check

The loss against the Edmonton Eskimos has tipped the scales of confidence in Rider Nation. All of a sudden the offensive playbook needs to be burned, the quarterback is no longer a hero and the special teams are dreadful.

The way I see it, only one of those things is true.

But to calm you, the fans, nerves let's take a trip back to memory lane.

Trust me, it won't hurt. Its only 365 days.

CFL Power Rankings After Week 8/9

Hope everybody had a great summer, well that is until that game on Saturday night! WOW, that better be the worst game the Roughriders play this season because if it isn't, I can't imagine watching anything much worse than that. Yes, the Riders got pummeled by the Stampeders a few weeks ago, but at least the Stampeders showed up to play. The Eskimos were their usual shoot themselves in the foot football team and the Riders found a way to be worse, which cost the Riders another spot.

The Canadian Football League is now officially a class system: Upper Class (Montreal, Calgary, Saskatchewan and Toronto), Middle Class (Hamilton and Winnipeg) and a Lower Class (Edmonton and B.C.).

I imagine grouping them together like that isn't a good enough power ranking is it?

Billboard Proves 13th Man Not Going Away

The Edmonton Eskimos have thrown gasoline on the rivalry between them and the Roughriders. They have placed a billboard outside Commonwealth Stadium promoting the August 28th matchup between the two Western Rivals.

What do you think Rider Nation? Is the too many men penalty just good fun or is this below the belt? Personally, I think the Riders had it coming with the billboards they've been putting up outside Commonwealth.

I wonder what the Roughrider players will think of this?

A long weekend during Roughrider season was nice, especially with the weather on Saturday and Sunday holding up in Regina. Riders win... do they move up from 2b last week?

Premier Brad Wall (10-6) - Montreal - Edmonton - Saskatchewan - Calgary

Drew Remenda (8-8) - Montreal - B.C. - Saskatchewan - Calgary

Last week's winner was Tom, who picked Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg correctly but 3/4 was enough to lead the pack.
