^ In all fairness, it is a multi provincial sub forum and if the BB and Jets are listed, hence the Riders should be represented here as well. I'm Bipartisan on thread creation. I just do it if I have a moment.

But yes, it wasn't necessary..

It's been a rough ride this season, for sure.

Only one more year at Taylor Field, then they move into the new Mosaic Stadium.

Pretty sure even people with season tickets for the Riders wouldn't own up to it on this forum.

Well I'm a season ticket holder, have been for almost 10 years. Also a shareholder.

Yep the Riders pooched it this year, so what. We just wanted to see what it's like from the Bombers point of view for a change....

Didn't someone say you live in Australia or something? How can you have season tickets if you live half way around the world?

Also a season ticket holder... since I was 7... and I own a share. No problem admitting that.


Plus... there is a giant Rider forum that a lot of people on here are also on, in addition to the non-architecture/city-planning minded Rider fans... and it has almost a million more posts in its main discussion section than the entire Canada section has on here I'm guessing that's partially why nothing Rider specific has ever really been started here before. Not a bad thing to have one here as well though.

The posters here do tend to be a bit more civilized and logical vs the nutbars over there.

I do live in Australia now, but I renew my tickets every year. Give them to my family to use, doesn't change a thing. i will keep renewing them as long as I can.

To really appreciate that you need to get Fire Joe Mack handling the selection of players for a few season.

You know, in spite of my dislike for the Roughriders I still wouldn't wish that upon them.

^I've lived through plenty of periods of atrocities with the Riders, including my entire high school and most of elementary school life in 1978-1987.

The Blue Bombers have never missed the playoffs for 10 straight years. They are at 4 right now, still a while to go to beat that.

I'm surprised anyone from my generation even watches the Riders at all.
