  1. BTW - I have nothing but a hunch to go on, but my guess is that the ceremony will be on 9/30, the week 4 game against Jacksonville. Its a Thursday Night, and therefore the earliest "national" game, which the Stripes could leverage off of to help garner HOF support for whomever (cough..Ken Anderson Ken Riley... cough) gets honored. Heck, the whole broadcast could feature Bengal historical greats during the cutaways to commercial breaks if the league got behind it. The only other logical choices would be opening week (but we play the Vikings, nobody will be watching) or the Browns
  2. To further infuriate folks, here's my personal list: Class of 2021: QB Ken Anderson + CB/S Ken Riley (alphabetically, not gonna rank them against each other) From the other fifteen: 1 - WR Isaac Curtis 2 - OL Willie Anderson 3 - DL/LB Tim Krumrie 4 - OL Max Montoya 5 - QB Boomer Esiason 6 - RB Corey Dillon 7a/b - WR Chad Johnson + WR Cris Collinsworth (I keep flip-flopping on these two, so I'd put them in together) 9 - CB/S Lemar Parrish 10 - PK Jim Breech 11a/b/c - RB James Brooks, CB/S David Fulcher, DL/LB Reggie Williams (
  3. Can we at least start by ranking ballot players from the same position? If there's a "best" player at that position, the "next best" player shouldn't be considered until the "best" player is. Here are the position with multiple nominees, and I've listed them in the order I would take them in: QB: Ken Anderson, Boomer Esiason RB: Corey Dillon, James Brooks WR: Isaac Curtis, Chad Johnson, Cris Collinsworth OL: Willie Anderson, Max Montoya, Dave Lapham DL/LB: Tim Krumrie, Reggie Williams CB/S: Ken Riley, Lemar Parrish, David Fulcher The pos
  4. Nah... go back and watch the Soldja in his video. Saphead was translating.

  8. After his entire career in Cincinnati It's going to be weird seeing him on another team's injury report.
  9. How are you getting C$303. When I try to build that jersey (retro, full-stitched, patch, name+number) I get C$262. Does your quote include shipping, or have you put on weight and are using more fabric? Are we starting with the same jersey? https://www.theriderstore.ca/collections/10-jerseys/products/mens-new-era-retro-jersey?variant=19666450972768 (PS the jersey shown HAS a retro patch on both sleeves already)
  10. BTW.... If LT or me or anyone else jumps on the ownership bandwagon, you will want to hold off before stocking up on merch from their online proshop. Owners get a 15% merch discount, but you have to register with the shop and you need info from your shareholder welcome packet before doing that. Stuff is a bit pricey, but remember that things are shown in C$, which are about US$0.80 each. With the additional 15% it brings prices down to US$0.68 per C$1.00, which will help offset shipping. So... be patient, grasshopper. Are you a new Rider Shareholder or past Rider Sha

  12. Meanwhile... let's all experience Regina: I'm making this my ring tone.
  13. The issue is that the CFL's bottom line is driven much more so by ticket sales than most other leagues of their stature. While the Bengals can play to 10K and still turn a profit, teams in the Great White North depend on attendance to boost their bottom line.... and teams in the most expensive markets (Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton, Ottawa, Vancouver) have not been doing that well. Throw in the cancellation of the 2020 season, and their rejected appeal to the government for a $30M bailout/loan/donation.... they're hurting. They really need the 2021 season to come off without a hitch, but the
  14. Naah, just yankin' your chain, man. SSK-WPG is right up there at the top of CFL rivalries... probably in 2nd behind EGM-CGY. And for the record, I don't know how to play banjo either.
  15. Lol - I know all about the Banjo Bowl. Others should Google that, the backstory is pretty hilarious. And you being a Bomber fan.... that's terrific. You can go ahead and hate the Riders, that's cool. We don't return the hate - the Bombers aren't that important to us.
  16. Yeah. The Roughriders play in Regina. Your Mom's Regina. Grow up. Lol.
  17. Are you guys done? Because if so, I just confirmation that I am the newest owner of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. I spoke with a very kind woman in Regina who confirmed my order, spelling of my name for the stock certificate, and mailing address. I'll have it in a couple of weeks. And, I guess, this means that as a proto-Canadian I need to start apologizing for everything. As a fan of the XFL's St Louis BattleHawks (KaKaw!) I am very interested in the ongoing talks between the XFL and CFL. Perhaps we might see the two leagues join forces - a Grey Cup Victory Parad
  18. Everybody knows that Green Bay is the only team in the four major North American leagues that is publicly-owned. The Packers even, from time to time, offer shares for sale when they need to raise cash to do some upgrades to the stadium or other nonesense. Shares are largely symbolic - you can't trade or sell them, they get you a "vote" for the annual slate of Board of Directors, and I think there's a discount in the Pro Shop. It's more a vanity thing than having any sort of controlling interest in the team, but that doesn't stop folks from snapping them up. I even bought one for myself and
