Rider games are like going fishing. You hope for the best every time out, but ultimately it's all pond scum and youget skunked.

Wonder if Chap has a plan for Ottawa Blitz's? He better have. Didn't the RB's sack poor old Tina like 10 times? We all know their previous strategy. Load up the box so Messam couldn't run and force the QB to throw. Maybe that won't work this time as Glenn is a much better QB than Tino. Still would be nice to see Messam break some runs especially as the D gets tired in the 2nd half.
Go Riders

7 pm and sunny, not anymore - but perfect weather for a football game.
Go Riders. Boo to the Redblacks.

Just seems like no buzz around town for this game. Not surprised but what do expect when 1-10.

Of course there's no buzz with the team 1-10!!One of the worst seasons in team history who is going to spend hard earned money watching that garbage!!So many things need to be fixed or this is just the beginning.

"Who is going to spend hard earned money watching that garbage"

over 30,000 fans by the sounds of it.

Let me guess, you were a big fan in 2013 but not really since.

Did you all hear the big flush on the Ti-Cats quest for the 2015 Grey Cup! Another one bites the dust. How different the 2015 season would be had each team had their starters playing in each game.

So I don’t hear Arash Madani crying how unfair the expansion draft was this year!
