Cruel and Cold (But Still Damn Funny!!)

Thanks to Scott for e-mailing this to me. Get your kleenex ready!!!!!


Just So You Know

The CFL has fined Eskimos Sean Fleming, Mike Maurer and William Loftus an unspecified amount of money for comments "disparaging" to the league. This stems from the controversy surrounding the holding call on Maurer which negated a game winning last second kick from Fleming against the Riders Friday.

Happy Hallowe'en To The Rider Nation

May the treat you desire come at the end of November and not the end of October

A Vanishing Breed

You know something has happened over the past few weeks. Something that has left me smiling. Its that the Kerry Joseph bashers have finally shut up--although I'm sure there are many of them hoping to get one or two more digs in before the season is over because hey thats the way Rider "fans" are right??

Joseph Gets West Nomination

A former Rider quarterback or the current Rider quarterback will be the 2007 CFL MVP. The player of the year finalists are Kerry Joseph and Kevin Glenn. Joseph preventing a sweep by the BC Lions in the West as members of the first place Lions took the other nominations. For a complete list, go to the CFL's website at


That Didn't Take Long

To no one's surprise, the Western semi-final is sold out. The last remaining tickets were snapped up within the first hour of the ticket office being opened Monday morning.

Lining Up

After watching the Red Sox sweep the Rockies, I had to drive by Taylor Field to get home and by the looks of it, a lineup has started to form outside the ticket office. You gotta think the remaining tickets for the November 11th game against Calgary that weren't swallowed up by season ticket holders will be gone by the end of the day.

Blown Call Is Not What Gave The Riders The Win

All the talk on Fridays win in Edmonton surrounds the last play field goal by Sean Fleming that was waved off because of the "questionable" holding call on Mike Maurer. One that is being debated across the country by CFL fans today including on this fine forum. However, that call is not why the Eskimos lost. Lets recap.

--Edmonton could not beat a Rider team that was playing many backups.

--Edmonton lost a 13 point lead in the 1st half and a 15 point lead in the 2nd half

--They turned the ball over on a goal-line stand and again at the end

Andre Proulx Strikes Again

Another black mark for CFL officials courtesy of Andre Proulx. The TSN crew maybe summed it up the best when Jock Climie said "I'm afraid the league will fine me if I say what I want to". It was another purely laughable call by Proulx and his mates as they stole a win away from the Eskimos. However, one must look at the tremendous amount of positives put up by this Rider football team. Where do I start...
