Roughriders win award for "brand achievement"

The Saskatchewan Roughriders' efforts to create an inescapable brand have been honoured by the marketing industry.

There are few things that can't be bought with the Saskatchewan Roughriders' logo: t-shirts, kitchen utensils, windshild wiper fluid, potato chips, even Lego men have all been rolled out as part of a huge marketing effort aimed at capitalizing on the team's popularity.

Malcolm Cameron key in Pats turnaround

Younger players like Connor Gay and Dryden Hunt have added some much needed secondary scoring. If you ask the players though, they've been quick to praise their Head Coach Malcolm Cameron.

Playoff bound Pats remain focused on higher goals

The Regina Pats are where few thought they would be when the season began in September: the playoffs.

The Queen City Kids officially punched their ticket to the second season on Saturday night with a 7-3 win over their Trans-Canada rivals the Moose Jaw Warriors. The win also capped a year in which the Pats did not lose once to the Warriors or the Saskatoon Blades, something that is worth celebration itself, but making the playoffs is much better.
