Tonight the action is sure to be fierce
As Mike Reilly has proven to be no Buck Pierce

Its going to take many wins to get that cross-over
Riders cannot rely on Mr. O'Sullivan's four leaf clover

Jason Moss wants to prove he is the CFL's top field boss
While Chris Jones can ill afford another loss

Odell Willis and John Chick doth present a challenge so thick
But Big Blue's offensive line will not be licked

I just hope the riders treat this like a playoff game because we never win at commonfilth stadium. . Like ever . Gawd I hate the Eskimos and they're entitled fans

Big deal if Edmonton has a too big stadium, it sits half empty for games except when the Riders come to town.

the riders are doing great. one comment. is kevin glen color blind. i dont have enough fingers on my hands to count how many times rob bagg has been open. no one around him and many times more than 10 yards out. one play bagg was open and glen chose to throw to roosevelt with 3 edmonton players on him and almost intercepted. wake up glen. there is more than one receiver on this team.....

Hey Rod. you were wondering when the Riders last won in Edmonton? Answer is August 24th 2013.

Nearly 4 years to the day!

I doubt you'll read this but are u serious man? There's no way to tell this from TV coverage I've watched so your obviously going to games home and away and watching number 6 exclusively. . The game of football is fast and bagg had 4 clutch catches this game so I'm guessing the only one who's color blind is yourself .
