1986: Age seven. Lived two houses away from Gerald Roper; pretended I was Roy Dewalt playing football in my front yard; beat my little brother 56-0.

1990: Got picked last for kickball; gave up championship dreams.

2002: Volunteered with B.C. Lions; had brief conversation with Damon Allen about new sport of Slamball; carved jack o' lantern in likeness of Carl Kidd.

2009: Cheer on Lions every week!

I've been a fanatic, win or lose Bomber fan since 1944 at the age of 5. At the start of the 2009 season, new head coach Mike Kelly vowed to all the Bomber fans that he would bring back the kickass, no survivor kind of football that the Bombers played in the late '50's and early '60's when they appeared in 6 Grey Cups and won 4. Kelly seemed to have the credentials to back up his assurances and it was an exhilarating way to start the season. Then came September and a devastating, incomprehensible, complete meltdown in all aspects of the team's performance which included off-the-field turmoil which culminated in the departure of several well-respected and quality-performing team members - it was utter chaos in Winnipeg. I joined the howling, raging throng of Bomber fans, screaming for Kelly's head, demanding immediate and drastic changes to save the franchise. 'Mike Kelly is an arrogant, unfeeling, stupid jerk!!' Kelly stood his ground. Now, it's two games until the playoffs. Carry on. Mr. Kelly - carry on.

Hey guys, I'm Rej. I've been here for a month now so I should probobly introduce myself eventually!

I am a University student over here... in fact I go to school 100 meters from the new stadium they are building in Moncton. I've been a CFL fan for a long time.... but now with the game planned here for 2010, I guess I am following it a little closer! I am one of those people over here who think that a CFL franchise could work in Halifax or Moncton. I'd love to see it happen one day. Other than that, I don't know what else to say.... I am glad I found this site! Gives me a chance to discuss the happenings of the CFL somewhere! I was looking for a place just like this for a while!!

I hope to meet some of you when the party comes to town next September!

anywho, gotta get back to the studying stuff. Cheers for now! :beer:

Hey all,

My name is Chris Real, and I frigging love this emoticon: :pass:

Anyway,

I am a die hard Rider fan, but possess very few of the negative personality traits other team's fans tend to (somewhat justifiably :cool:) dislike us for.

I don't possess anywhere near the dislike for The Eskimos, The Bombers, or the Lions as many of my contemporaries do - choosing instead to focus and concentrate all my CFL hatred on one very, very deserving "team", city, and fan base. :)

Looking forward to contributing to this site... I'm going to start by trying to find somewhere to use THIS smilie thingy:
:rammer:

Seriously, when would that ever come into play? AHAHAHAHA I will find a way.

Cheers all.

At some point I promise you:

Talk of expansion!
Talk of how Angelo Mosca is the greatest Canadian by choice

It's been a while since I've been here in any capacity or time.

I promise to annoy some

and amuse others

Hi all!

My name is Shane Hoopfer. I'm a Stamps fan living in Calgary. I also do blogging for www.prosportsblogging.com covering the Stamps, Flames, and Mariners, and am the director of CFL content on the site. Our CFL coverage is starting at the end of this week!

I'm looking forward to the start of the season! And hearing what people think about their teams and the CFL in general.

Saskfan4life here, born and raised in Saskatoon and currently living in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Of course I'm a diehard Rider fan. Years ago, I was a regular on Total-CFL, and I still contribute to the occasional discussion on the official CFL site. I played in one of the first Snow Bowls, in Winnipeg in '97. I played on the same high school football team as Warren Muzika, who went on to play in the CFL with Hamilton and Winnipeg, and my cousin, Gene Makowsky. I coach a pee wee football team, and referee bantam and high school games in the Prince Albert area. Outside of football, I enjoy acting in community theatre, and musically, I love '60's & '70's classic rock, especially KISS. For the past 7 seasons or so, almost every game I've gone to, I've combined my passions for KISS & the Riders & dress up as "Green Gene", a Rider-ized Gene Simmons costume with the black Pilsner Rider flag as my cape, and some green in the makeup and hair. I've made it on to the big screen at Mosaic stadium a few times, on the front page of the Regina Leader-Post's sports section once, and on the front page of the Calgary Sun after last year's Grey Cup, but I've never been on TSN... Yet...
