I’ve been thinking a bit about 1979 when Ron Lancaster took over as head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The last weekend of CFL football has already kicked off, and already there is a plot line that may have implications on the dogfight that is expected to be the Western Conference.
So the first game of the pre-season is in the books with Edmonton pinning the Saskatchewan Roughrider third stringers to the floor by a 35-12 mark.
If CFL teams were looking to spark interest in the 2018 season, they certainly went about it the right way as training camps opened this past weekend.
A couple of years ago the Saskatchewan Roughriders signed receiver Mo Price as a free agent who then got a signing bonus and then promptly retired, providing the province of Manitoba with hours of chuckles.
The annual crapshoot called the CFL Draft has come and gone and teams did a combination of picking the best athlete and the best athlete not likely to have an NFL try-out.
