Saskatchewan Roughriders

"Fantuz"tic Afternoon For Riders In Steeltown

The Riders have hit the 10 win plateau. They go into Hamilton and beat the Ti-Cats 40-23 for their 3rd straight win. The story of the game was 2nd year receiver Andy Fantuz. He had the biggest afternoon of any CFL receiver this year catching 7 passes for 240 yards and three touchdowns.

Flick Will Play

Just received the official word from Hamilton. DJ Flick will be in uniform for Sunday's game. Flick missed virtually all of practice leading up to this week's game after flying home to be with his wife who gave birth to premature twins.

W2W4-What To Watch For

First off, watch a playoff team. Yes, the BC win over Edmonton clinches a playoff spot for the Riders. ( I know, I know, you would much rather have had Edmonton win and really why didn't Stefan Lefors run it in instead of trying to throw it in at the end.....I digress)Remember that a Winnipeg win and a Rider win means the home playoff game will be a reality. That being said, here's what I'll watch for tomorrow

Minor Roster Change

Just one change to the Riders 46-man roster for tomorrow's game. The potential absence of D.J. Flick has forced the Roughriders to push offensive lineman Chris Best off the roster to make room for receiver Kahlil Hill.

Future Rider QB on Display Today

The University of Missouri Tigers are the #11 ranked team in US College Football and they are led by a quarterback named Chase Daniel. Daniel is on the Saskatchewan Roughriders negotiation list and there are some NFL scouts who believe Daniel's best route as a pro is through the CFL because of his size. (ie: Another Drew Tate). Daniel and the Tigers are on "The Score" this afternoon meeting the #6 ranked University of Oklahoma. Kickoff is 430. I won't be able to see it but if you do and want to post a review after, go for it.

Damaging But Not Devastating

I can't say I'm surprised at the announcement that Matt Dominguez is done for the season. I have had the feeling that we had seen the last of number 88 when he crumpled to the Canad Inns Stadium turf. Having to go the rest of the way without Dominguez is indeed a tough pill to swallow for the Riders but its something that while tough can be digested and more importantly recover from.

Report : Dominguez Done for Season

It appears Matt Dominguez' season is over. The Regina Leader Post is reporting the Saskatchewan Roughrider star receiver will be placed on the 9-game injury list on Saturday, effectively ending his season. Dominguez status has been in doubt since he injured the ACL in his left knee during a game in Winnipeg back in September.

Flick Leaves for another Emergency!

D.J. Flick's relief from his last family emergency was short lived. The Saskatchewan Roughrider receiver has rushed back home to Pennsylvania to deal with another situation, but this one is not connected to the last emergency which kept D.J. out of practice last week. "It's his wife but I don't want to go into too much more detail than that" coach Kent Austin said following today's indoor practice. Austin described D.J.'s chances of playing in Hamilton Sunday as 'remote' at best. If Flick cannot go, Michael Palmer is likely to take his starting spot.

I'm Guessing The Blackout Will be Lifted

You haven't seen releases like this cross the desk over the  past few years....
