Okay gang. Here's the scoop. I'm a big time Rider fan (just like all the rest of you). I paint my face up, I wear the green, and I brave the hostile crowd at BC Place everytime the Riders come to town.
But, I'm always disappointed that us Rider Fans end up being scattered through the building. In a crowd of 38,000, the 5000 Rider fans get severly diluted.
THIS STOPS NOW!!!!
Here's the plan. We start a campaign to get Rider fans to band together. Literally. I'm calling on all Rider fans at every away game to buy tickets in one section only.
In section 23.
No matter what stadium we play in, we need to own Section 23. Call it the General's section. It's ours. We need to band together, and make ourselves a force to be reckoned with.
Everyone knows that we are the most vocal fans across the league. We show up in greater numbers than any other visiting team, but now it's time that we band together.
Don't get your tickets off of a website. Call the ticket office. Buy tickets in section 23. It's time that we make this happen.
It may take a while to catch on, but I believe that this is something that we can do that will sweep across the nation.
Riders fans will own section 23 in every stadium within 3 years. Let's make it happen.
The greatest team in the CFL.
The greatest fans in the CFL.
For the Greatest Rider of them all. #23.
