Forgot this was happening today too with the Rider game going on. Should have had this game on Sunday afternoon.

14,500 at the game , sold out and the Rush organization had it Blacked out according to Sask Tel. What a joke. Riders also no TV.
If it was the Leafs it would have been on 12 channels.

Nice comments from the Classless people who hate anything Saskatoon does. Remember it is SASKATCHEWAN Roughriders not Regina Roughriders, same as it is Saskatchewan Rush not Saskatoon Rush.

Sounds like the SASKATOON rush choked coughing up the lead with 3 seconds left.

I guess we will see how the Riders do this year, they can't suck any worse than the last 5 years one would hope.
