Here's hoping we hang 60 points on the Lions Friday. We have to think that will be enough points to not let anyone catch up.

Why don't the Riders grab T. Campbell off the Stampeders practice roster to return kicks?

Yikes, this is starting to remind me of 2008 when Riders had about 20 guys on the injured list9 not sure the amount but it was a lot)

We had all those injured players and still won!! And it was all Tillman and Austin leading the way. Oh the good ole days.

Sorry buddy kent bailed on us after 2007. Tillman was still here but traded mvp joseph for a bag of pucks then traded again to get bishop.... Oh the bad ol days.

Yup and Joseph never did a thing again after the one good year. Would have been great to sign him up for the money he was asking for and then having him turn into the dud he became. At least Tillman left Miller with a great nucleus that he handed to Taman. Go over budget and win a GC then follow up with disastrous year and then now try to find a way through this year.

In Hamilton Austin and Tillman took a sad sack organization and have it on the cusp of a GC, one they should have won last year and probably will this year…..oh the bad ol days. In a couple years or less we will be wishing for those days, now that this management crew try to build a winner with impact players they've brought in. As of the last couple years it mainly looks like the recycle depot as opposed to anything else.

Sorry buddy The Woz. Taman still here, he should have traded Durant immediately after 2013 GC for a bag of pucks sans Joseph. Oh these are going to bad days ahead for riderville.

And the Ds problem is coaching?

Lots of comments this year about too many flags. I understand that. But ... are all the reviews not as bad ... or even worse. Same deal as another flag but reviews are impacting EVERY important play.

I am finding the game has lost the spontaneous excitement that is so much a part of the entertainment for sports fans. We all know how our reaction is different to a great play/score etc when we see a flag. Dampens things ... no? So now every exciting turnover and score is dampened as we wait for a head office review. And then the worst ... the coaches challenge. Talk about a way to settle an otherwise heped-up crowd! Wait for the ref to talk to the coach then announce a challenge then wait and wait for head office to go over and over slow motion replays.

Yes we 'have the technology' to correct some mistakes. But ... imagine for a moment if we expanded that to every play ... just to make the point. We would correct even more mistakes I am sure. But how would we like our game then?

Sports is not scientific study or accounting ... it's entertainment! Don't lose the entertainment by trying to make it technically accurate.
