You can thank the taxpayers for the rider dressing room. Where' s my stall?Bruce
Rod, where's your office? Please advise.Sam
Rod, This is an absolutely fantastic facility! Players will be lining up to come and play for the Riders just based on the new facility. I saw my very first game in 1963 - The Labour Day Classic and have been an incredibly passionate Rider fan ever since- just ask my family! While I will miss the memories of old Taylor Field ( still can't get used to Mosaic) I know that there will be many great memories created by the new facility!
Actually the tax payers don't pay a cent towards the Riders facilities. Nice try though. You are the type of person who would be happy if Regina stayed as Pile 'O Bones and we still drove around horse and buggy. Everyone remember, this isn't mandatory. You can stay home. There are lots of people willing to buy tickets.

His office is at CKRM.
Bruce, Check the mens room.
In the trainers room Bruce. Take some medicine to cure that bitterness.
To everyone who is wetting their panties and assuming that no other team has facilities like this, you need to get out more. All the new CFL stadiums have facilities that in fact look almost identical, other than the color scheme of course. They have theatres for watching film and unbelievable training rooms. And yes I have been in some of them.
Sorry Bruce! Unless you are a season ticket holder, you aren't paying for the football facilities at all. Now for those of us with season tickets, after seeing this, I am thinking my tickets are going to be going up substantially more than I anticipated. Ouch!!!
Man, it is so true. You just can't fix stupid.Lt Dan
Going to be a great facility and will impress players during recruiting. Rumored that the ticket prices for 2017 will be revealed in March 2016. I expect this will be the start of the seat relocation process. Once people get over the sticker shock and decide if they will pay the new pricing the process will begin. Having dealt with the Riders for years I expect to get screwed either on price or where my new seats will be assigned.
Mr. Sulu, warp speed ahead. The good ship riderville in the trusty hands of Captain Jones/Lieutenant Murphy and on their way to a new galaxy called winning! Minions (B of D, hang arounds) back of the bus as your Impeding progress and in the way as this new ship launches forward never to look back.
The excitement will subside when the season ticket allocation to the new stadium, along with the new pricing structure, starts
Excellent facility, very impressive.
I love when the haters are so wrong. Taxpayers didn't pay for this luxury dressing room, the team did. So suck a lemon sourpusses.
Best facility for the best team. Well deserved!
Tax payers on the hook for every cent on the dollar.
No... Not all CFL facilities are the same... Hamiltons "brand new" stadium is great. Played in it last year but it is not the same. The locker room most specifically. USask and U of R have 2 of the nicest facilities out there overall.
How will you be screwed by the Riders? If you don't like the price or the location then don't buy the tickets. Its not rocket science. Life is about choices. I think it is more about people of Saskatchewan generally being unhappy in life is what the complaining is about. It is a new stadium. You won't have the same seats as before. If that is the worse thing happening to you, man i want your life.
Wow.....looks awesome! We've come a long ways in the last 15 years. Very proud of how this team has grown up.
So many positive comments from outside of the province... rare from inside.Good job Steve, and other BC guy...Kel in Victoriaps. we could only wish to have a stadium like that here on the left coast - stop whining Regina!!!
Will the new media room be named after John Lynch - perhaps the 'Frenzy Quarter' or the "John Lynch Room"?
Riders typically don't show a lot of respect for fans, just buy overpriced merchandise,buy your lottery and plaza ticket and shut up. As a 30+ year season ticket holder with great seats I will be targeted for the largest increase in ticket prices. I do have a choice and will exercise it accordingly.
There are 200,000 people in this city, over a million in the province bud and only 33,000 will go to the games each week. If you don't like the seats, merchandise, plaza, lottery then don't buy! But also don't complain. I want a 2,000 sq. foot house in Lakeview but can't afford it. Do you see me bawling my eyes out on forums? Wake up call people. You do not own this team! For the first time the Riders appear to be a real pro sports team and are setting another standard in the CFL. It is time for people to "buy-in" or leave.
Uh actually, genius, the Riders' facilities are NOT being paid for by tax dollars and the funds are actually being raised by the Riders.Simpleton.
Hey BudWho owns the Riders? I thought it was a community owned team. You must work for the Riders and think its an employee owned team.I believe I'm entitled to my opinion, I support the team by buying my season tickets. I've made other choices, I do not buy merchandise at the Rider store, I do not support the Plaza (an old boys club).A new stadium and a few years of success and the Riders will be the Riders. Team was 2-24 my first 2 years as a season ticket holder, I have stuck with this team like many others. Hopefully the Riders don't forget this.
Why would they name a room after a wannabe loudmouth, a very big loud mouth who never played a down of school yard football.
Hear Hear !
Had to laugh at the pic of the roughriders operations area all those trophies all 4 of them in 100 years
