Willster :
"It's in the centre of Canada ... the best part, you might say. On a US map, find Denver, then go straight north. Come visit us some time. Late June/early July is the best, weatherwise. Some say, Saskatchewan is North America's next |boom" place"."
carlos s :

will the roughraiders win it all this year?

john p :
"Have to see if they get a decent running back. They have the talent and now maybe the GM and coach"
Mountainman :
"I think it all depends on who the riders will sign in the off season"
Jamie :
"Every true Rider fan believes that they will!!!"
Gilp :
"Probably not. I think they have a bad defensive backfield. And say who is their QB?"
HONORARIUS :
"No, they won't..."
Spike D'oh! :
"It depends on the coach. Just kidding. I am actually an Eskimos fan. Well, some one has to be blamed so we might as well start now.( Go Eskies Go! Oh wait, we still Have Dany " not much of a coach -a" Macioca leading our team.) Good luck against B.C in the West, Riders!"
mAD~mOD :
"The Riders won't even make the play-offs"
iversonfan3rox :
"i knew theirt old coach danny barret i was friends with some of his children"
KT :
"i like them but no...."
tthoops1 :
"no"
big e :
"no ricky williams's team will"
DoubleJJ :
"yes they will but us 'rider fans think that every year"
carlos s :

will the roughradiers win it all this year??

Ambrose :
"Wow, that gonna be tough to do. they barely made the playoffs last year, and its going to be tough to this year as well. Its gonna be hard to win in the west when youve got calgary and BC in the way. theyre probably fighting for the last playoff spot with edmonton. however saskatchewn did have a great draft, probably the second best (2nd to hamilton). but you cant say thats gonna make it happen for them next year. Theyre defense is pretty good too. especially theyre rushing defense that only let by 82 yards per game last year. That might be the key to their sucess, along with Kerry Joseph leading the team at QB. but one major thing is that they lost kenton keith, thats 1000 yards rushing that they might not get back. i dont think they will win it all, at least not this year, but they will probably at least make the playoffs"
roadieboy :
"It is too early to tell. Kenton Kieth left a big hole. If they can replace his (potential) 1000 yards rushing and Joseph's knee is 100% they have a good chance. Joseph could have 1000 yards rushing if he is healthy and that would add a lot to the attack. However Austin was a drop back passer who stayed in the pocket as long as he could, he might have Joseph do the same."

With -50°C temperatures covering most of the Canadian Prairies in an Arctic deep-freeze, no one should be outside for too long. RCMP confirmed two baby girls were found dead in the snow on the Yellow Quill First Nation reserve Wednesday afternoon after their drunken father attempted to go to his sister's home with the girls Tuesday night.
