All this negative slant on the Rider season isn't right. I want to thank the Riders for an exciting season. We had many last quarter miracle come backs playing with young second string players. We saw two Saskatchewan born and bred running backs on the field at the same time and performing at a top level. We got another home playoff game when the critics had written us off at the beginning of the season because we lost Autsin and Joseph along with other starters in the off-season.
Thanks guys for the gutsy season and even though we didn't win on Saturday I'm proud of the effort and no-quit attitude you displayed this year. After seeing the performance of our young guns this year I'm positive we'll be enjoying another home playoff stint next season.
