Nice cold snowy days are common for Packer home games and they fill their stadium regardless. So lets see Rider Nation show that they are not fair weather fans.

Also today may well see future Rider Plaza inductee James Franklin play for the first time in our new stadium.

I am hoping rider fans shock me and show up today. As long as we have had tickets it's been sad crowds whoever the weather cools off... including not selling out playoff games. Put on a jacket people!send someone else to the game if you must. Don't leave the place empty.

Rider fans love to support their team... As long as it is warm and sunny.

Anony #1 - LOL you have a player that has never and probably will never play for the Riders going into the Plaza. Interesting thought process there!

The roads are really bad so I would expect that a lot of out of town fans will be choosing to stay safe and not venture out today. But, for those that do show up, good on you! You are brave (and maybe a bit crazy) fans.

Don't paint us all with the same brush, we are Rider fans but just have not been able to get to too many games. We'll be listening to the game and hopefully cheering loud because they stomp on the Eskimos. Go Riders!

Also a preview of what will be the great Saskatchewan Wimp Out where thousands of riders fans stay home because they think they’ll freeze their toes off

How did the stomping go...glad you met the healthy Eskimos team unlike last time with injuries. Don't take the East lightly because you will be out before you started then...you can say it's the easy way but not one west team has made the Grey Cup crossing over.

Playoffs upon us. Time for the big dogs to eat. Quit yapping. Just win or step aside. Don't whine.
