    Edmonton manages a couple of first downs to start. This is a telling sign at the state of the franchise though:

    Maybe the message was so Edmonton fans had an opportunity to disassociate themselves from the product on the field.

    They should've asked the Eskimo fans to wear green and it wouldn't look like a home game for the road team.

    Eskimos up 10-6 with the first TD of the game. Saskatchewan with absolutely blown coverage there.

    Interesting game in the works here.

    This has the makings of a game where the Esks just might upset...

    Classic "Suitorism" after the officials overturn the Edmonton Hugh Charles fumble, ruling him "down by contact before the ball came out: " well Edmonton fans will disagree with me, but I see the play differently" . Of course you do Glenn, of course you do. Geez Louise! Can't we get Suitor and Black off of Rider games - EVER?

    Funny thing is RiderFan.com has a petition to get Black off TSN as well - says he is too slanted AGAINST the Riders. Are you KIDDING ME?

    We're thinkin' the same, Doog.

    When I heard him say that, the thought that ran through my mind was: "I just call it as I see it: through green tinted glasses!" :D

    Get out of my Head Tundra! EXACTLY word for word what I was thinking!

    Lets go Esks! Man those words sound foreign to type after so many years of the epic Battle of Alberta's of the 70's - 2006 " approximately". My RiderNation fan hate runs much deeper than it ever did against Eskimo Fan.

    Well, you'll get an opportunity to put that proposition to the test in person soon enough, eh? ;)

    Where was the change? When did it happen that the Riders flipped into the most hated spot? Because it sure wasn't that deep back in the 80s and likely into the 90s. Anybody got a moment in time when it happened?

    When Hank moved to the Stampeders in April, 2005 and the green horde began piling on...

    Anybody else see the facial resemblance I do between Mike Reilly and Esks all-time middle linebacker Dan Kepley?

    For a QB, Reilly plays with the mentality of a linebacker, too! ;)

    Gutsy kid!

    Stamps may have their hands full with these Reilly led Eskimos. I liked him when he was a Lion. Another "QB apple" falling off of the Buono / Hufnagel QB tree. Are Edmonton improving that much or are the Riders just sliding that much on defence. 3 bad games for the Riders in a row! It ain't over yet though. Reilly needs better protection though. Saskatchewan desperately trying to knock him out of the box.

    This just in, Edmonton has a field goal kicker now?

    Apparently.

    "The Bearded One".

    I think he uses it to gauge wind speed and direction. :D

    Suitor and Black, just stfu, JUST STFU ALREADY. Geez Louise! Your contracts I'm sure say "colour commentary" and "Play by Play" not "Cheerleading Roughrider Fanboys" :(

    Why bring old man Joseph in on short yardage? Reilly can run that short Yardage game. He would have behind Lulay in YVR. Don't give up Reilly. Edmonton defence has to make a stand here. C'mon D, get the ball back for Reilly.

    Down by contact! Should be Eskimo ball. Rider refs ride to the rescue. He was flat on his back before the ball came out. FFS!
