GO RIDERS [cheer]


Unfortunately it isn't going to happen because for some reason the CFL thinks hitting a defenseless QB in the head is okay so long as he's named Zach Collaros.

Fixed for accuracy.

I've never been one to take Hamilton's side on anything, but Lawrence was trying to avoid that hit, managing to make his helmet miss but connecting with the shoulder. Players know the risks of football well in advance.

Also....the Riders knowingly put a QB with previous concussion issues out on the front lines, knowing that one more hit might finish his career. This is also the same Roughriders team that 'believed' Collaros when he said after a big hit in last year's preseason that he 'didn't have a concussion' when he did, and was hiding the fact to keep playing.

Sorry, but the Riders have themselves to blame this time.

Of course only a Bombers fan would say that being on the receiving end of a cheap shot was the victims fault. :roll:

But please explain to me how it's the Riders fault again. Should they tell someone to stop playing because he had concussions in the past from cheap shots? Hell nobody in their right mind would think that this kind of crap would continue to keep happening to the same QB over and over again.



BTW do you remember a Winnipeg QB named Buck Pierce? You guys had no problem playing him with all the injuries and concussions he had. Hell you'd still be playing him if he hadn't retired himself. So stop the it's Saskatchewan's fault bullshit. I can name you dozens of teams in two leagues that have done worse.

And if you don't think it was a cheap shot maybe you should listen to the people who actually play and played the game because you're obviously at odds with them.

Take a look at the picture in the article and then take a look at the video footage because you obviously missed the hit because of your blue tinged glasses.


But not to worry it's all okay cause Simoni Lawrence is sorry and Winnipeg's chances to make the playoffs just got alot better.

I have no horse in this race, but it was a cheap shot... I might understand if Collaros was coming down head first, but he was giving himself up.

The only hope you guys have is if Kavis loses count of how many games there are in a season and leaves before it's over.

I only recognized one name on my BC lions roster from last year.

I recognized a lot of ex-BC players on other teams though.

And we lost our game. :(

Yes, many changes to the Lion's roster for sure.

Too bad to see many players gone.

You hit the mark with the Buck Pierce comment, Freakin'. I can remember being outraged that the Bombers would keep putting Buck back in when he so obviously was not in any shape to be on the field.
The hit on Zach was egregious and completely Lawrence's fault.
That said, after watching Cody's performance after taking over the role, I'm hoping that Dickenson will keep Zach on the injured list for awhile yet. Sorry Zach but this kid is showing us that the Riders finally have a guy that actually gets the job done and in great fashion. Now if the defence gets back to 2018 form, we will be contenders for the Cup. JMHO

Really happy to see the Als win their first game of the season and at home in front of their fans. William Stanback was phenomenal last night - what a great addition to the team.
