The behaviour of some rowdy fans at Sunday’s Rider game has at least one Regina football fan wondering what exactly it takes to get tossed from Mosaic Stadium.
Once again this season, a Saskatchewan Roughrider has been named a CFL Player of the Week.
Feelings towards the Roughriders new pivot Tino Sunseri are likely improving after his performance in Sunday's win over the Ottawa RedBlacks at Mosaic Stadium.
Sunseri rebounded from his poor showing in his first ever CFL start the week prior when he passed for only 88 yards and an interception against Hamilton. Sunseri managed 260 yards and two touchdowns against the RedBlacks.
If the CFL has been lacking in the entertainment department, then the Sasktachewan Roughriders win over the Ottawa RedBlacks might have made up for the entire season.
The Riders mounted a second half comeback in a 35-32 double overtime win Sunday.
The Riders will get their shot to get back in the win column Sunday afternoon at Mosaic Stadium against the Ottawa RedBlacks.
The Green and White suffered their first loss in seven games last week in Hamilton and will try to get back into the win column against the worst team in the standings. Ottawa comes into the game in Regina with just one win on the season.
News that was apparently surprising to the Riders head coach.
The Riders will try to get back to their winning ways against the Ottawa RedBlacks at Mosaic Stadium.

After Tino Sunseri and the offence the biggest concern in Riderville is the special teams units, specifically the cover units.
Over the last five games, the teams have given up four touchdowns - one off of a missed field goal and three against the punt-cover unit.
"We get an opportunity to make a tackle, we have to make a tackle, it's just that simple," said special teams coordinator Bob Dyce.
That's the concern heading into this week; the key to success for special teams is players staying in their lines and sticking to their assignments.
Tino Sunseri's performance in Hamilton remains a hot topic for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Sunseri struggled in that game with nine completed passes for 88 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. However, football is the ultimate team sport and it's not really fair to pin everything on the 25-year-old pivot.
Sunseri's struggles weren't the only ones on the field Sunday; receivers often struggled to get open, defence played well but most would likely admit they could have been better and the special teams unit gave up another touchdown.
Regina’s new Mosaic Stadium is starting to take shape and it won’t be long before the public will be able to see a structure.
Right now it’s hard to see much of anything besides construction crews and materials. One thing that might catch your eye are a pair of gold tower cranes in the northeast and southeast corners of the site, standing 215 feet and 200 feet respectively. Two more cranes will be added next month; all four will remain at the site until October 2015.
Sunday's Roughrider loss to Hamilton hasn't humbled now-starting quarterback Tino Sunseri.
"My confidence is through the roof, you can tell, I've always been a confident individual when I step on the field," he told reporters after the riders took to the practice field Wednesday. It was the first practice since losing 28-3 to the Tiger-Cats, a game that was also Sunseri's first-ever professional start.
