Well, let’s jump right in with my evaluation of the Offence and Special Teams.

‘Rider 2005 Recap: Part 1

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005 by Jon

2005 was a pivotal year for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Five years into the Roy Shivers/Danny Barrett regime expectations were high. A strong finish to 2004 and a playoff run that was only one field goal away from a Grey Cup appearance setup 2005 as a break-out or break-up year. However off-season moves changed the complexion of the team in 2005 and it underwent its standard turmoil during the season. Despite a disappointing season on and off field, the ‘Rider executive maintained the status quo for football operations. It is still to be seen what player changes may happen for the upcoming training camp. Here is my evaluation of the team performance in 2005 starting with Part 1 – Season Review and Football Operations.

    Other Bomber Stadium Proposal Revealed → A half-a-billion dollar fully covered stadium/hotel/waterpark and retail space complex proposed by Canad Inns. Also calls for $80 million in government money for stadium and $29 million in tax abatement from the city. This proposal will obviously be a fan favourite due to the covered stadium and Bomber franchise remains community owned. However, I don’t know if the St. Boniface location is popular among fans. There is still one Bomber/unknown developer proposal to be revealed. #
