Can anyone back me up here??? Keep in mind the club reflects the fans and the fans reflect the club.
I'd love to able to remember but I cant recall the game or even the year. I omit disgusting happenings from my indepth memory. That was grounds for fighting. Seriously. But we as we always will be were the bigger man and accepted it. Like in the case of the game where the lights went out at BC place just as the Riders were turning the momentum. Or the time you took a half hour break to honor good ol' Lui Passaglia, once again during a Rider rally and then rubbed salt on our wounds cheekily tossing Lui a TD pass.
I may as well mention a cplay that was within the rules that permanantly hurts to watch. Tyronne Williams catching that TD. See BC...you can have some fun while winning fairly!
Ya its gone. Buts its not forgotten and the day I pay a dollar to see a game in that cold eyesore of a building will be a cold day in hell. Cudos to the good BC people who dont show up and watch these displays of the poorest sportsmanship. And to the displaced Rider and other CFL team fans that have the pleasure of living in the greatest city in the world with the worst sports fans...
Do NOT be mistaken, I love Regina. Of course I love Vancouver.
But what happened to the days when men on both sides of the ball clashed together on the field and the best team won? My dad talks about living in Van. in 54' and being so proud at those early games.
There is a lesson in pride and sportsmanship every other weekend in Regina with an open invitation.
Lions Roar in 54'!!! Thats what we need not some fanatics who figure its cool to increase decibel levels through artificial means at the cost of losing to a BETTER team.
OK Rider fans...I appologise if Ive offended you but Im a little sour grapes when it comes to cheaters. Anyone happen to know which games these were?
