4. Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-1)

Last week: 4

Last game: 45-27 loss to Winnipeg
Next game: At Calgary, Sat. June 24

Worth noting: As CJME’s and CFL.ca’s Jamie Nye pointed out in the wake of Friday’s game, he was surprised by the good vibes that emanated from the Rider fan base over their 18-point loss to the Bombers. Some reasons for that optimism: 437 net yards of green team offence; a respectable three sacks allowed against a great Bombers’ defence and a three-touchdown performance from Trevor Harris, complete with a Sam Emilus receiving TD hat trick.

5. Calgary Stampeders (1-1)

Last week: 6

Last game: 26-15 win over Ottawa
Next game: Vs. Saskatchewan, Sat. June 24

Worth noting: The Stamps bounced back in Ottawa, with Jake Maier playing better (22-33 passing, 270 yards) and his receivers responding in kind, with Reggie Begelton and Malik Henry combining for 15 catches and 190 yards. The absence of Ka’Deem Carey was mitigated by Dedrick Mills‘ 19-carry, 99-yard, one-TD effort. The Stamps celebrated five turnovers from the REDBLACKS and had a cookie cutting celebration in the TD Place end zone, which was an all-timer, depending on who you ask.

4) Saskatchewan Roughriders (5)

The Riders couldn’t have asked for more from veteran quarterback Trevor Harris against Winnipeg, as he threw for 413 yards and three touchdowns while battling a hip injury that put his status in question for most of the week. It still wasn’t enough for a win but that level of offensive output against the league’s top team has fans feeling optimistic for once.

5) Calgary Stampeders (6)

Jake Maier and company bounced back from a bad opening week to down Ottawa by double digits, even without the services of star running back Ka’Deem Carey. Backup Dedrick Mills crossed the hundred-yard mark and Maier threw for 332 through the air, though two-thirds of that came courtesy of his receivers after the catch.

this should be an interesting game. i feel like riders are a stronger team but they have injuries.


Dave 6 - Craig 1 Do not ever think that doesn’t matter…

That’s a position the Riders cant afford more injuries. Dalke is out this week and if Lokombo goes down…


Does anything ‘matter’ now that our teams have hit new lows Squishy? Oh woe is us.

(By the way… am I overdoing this sad sack routine just a wee bit? I don’t wanna be a pain)


Hakunavanu always sounds like a Swedish Hockey player… In my head I substitute Hakuna Matada…

Actually, Fridays game made me feel better. The fact the Elks held BC to one TD…on the road…


Everyone wants a Hakunavanu Chainsaw. Those things will cut through anything.


Shoulda caught that one


But what does it matter in the overall scheme of things? Some things are beyond our reach.

Oops, it’s been ruled Calgary ball. Never mind.

We can learn much from chickens. What came first, the hand or the knee?


No, I hate the ass fumble rule. That “last to touch the ball” rule.


Monster punt and a flag. Big field position change
