Edmonton car dealer possibly purchasing Saskatoon Blades

For the first time since 1976, the Blades may be owned by someone other than a Brodsky and an Edmonton car dealer may be the top contender to buy the team.

After the Memorial Cup in May, the Blades sent out a release saying that the team's owners, the Brodsky family, were considering their options.

Blades co-owner, Jack Brodsky, confirmed the team is looking at offers and Mike Priestner, owner and CEO of Go Auto Edmonton is one of them.

Brendan Taman talks perfect start, free agents and expansion draft

The Roughriders may have the week off, but those behind the scenes are still working away this week.

That includes General Manager Brendan Taman who took some time out of his day to appear on the Green Zone on Wednesday.

Needless to say the Riders have a great start to the season so far, with a perfect 5-0 record, but with all of the moves the team made in the off season , and the overall plan this year...is it surprise to the boss?

"I can lie and say yes," joked Taman. "But the way we've played has been a nice thing to watch."

Regina Red Sox open playoffs in Melville

The Regina Red Sox begin their quest for a third straight WMBL title Wednesday night in Melville.

It's been an up and down year for the Sox who finished the year 22-24 record. It's also been a year of transition for the team with a new head coach, and a number of new players.

Saskatoon couple donates horse to South Dakota rodeo team

A rodeo team in South Dakota has a new four-legged team member. 

Jim Johnston and Katie Kehrig from Saskatoon donated a horse to the Black Hills State University (BHSU) rodeo team.

The horse was initially bought for Johnston's niece, who is in high school rodeo in Saskatoon, as a gift. They took her to see it but she decided she wanted to keep the horse she already had.

They were interested in the BHSU rodeo program and decided to donate the horse to the team. 

Roughriders special teams have it covered

As the Riders enjoy their bye week, the special teams unit has definitely earned their time off.

The Riders 5-0 start to the season is thanks to them dominating in all three aspects of the game so far. You could say though, overall, no unit has been more consistent for the Riders than their special teams unit.

Earlier in the year their punt return unit was getting some attention for the room they were creating for return man Jock Sanders, now it's the cover team that gaining attention by shutting down some of the league's best returners so far this season.

Short plays make the biggest difference in Riders win over Hamilton

Many of the Saskatchewan Roughriders are off this week and enjoying their perfect 5-0 to start the season.

One of the biggest reasons the Green and White are still undefeated is thanks to a series of events that no one outside of Alumni Stadium in Guelph saw live.

While the TSN feed was down, the Tiger-Cats got pretty good field position after the Riders were pinned deep, and punter Ricky Schmitt didn't have his best punt. Hamilton would drive the ball down the field all the way to the goal line, when safety Tyron Brackenridge made the stop.

UPDATED: Riders win fifth straight 32-20 over Tiger-Cats

Another week, another win for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, this time beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 32-20. 

The Riders moved to 5-0 on the season on the strength of Drew Willy's arm, Kory Sheets' legs and Geroy Simons hands.

Heading into the game it wasn't clear who the starting quarterback would be for the Riders, but it turned out to be backup quarterback Drew Willy, as Darian Durant's foot was deemed unfit to play on. It didn't end up hurting the Riders in the end, as Willy would throw for 269 yards and three touchdowns in the win. 

PREVIEW: Roughriders look to remain perfect in re-match with Tiger-Cats, Drew Willy starts

The Saskatchewan Roughriders will go for their fifth straight win to open the season as they're in Guelph taking on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Last week you may remember the Riders put a beat down on the Ti-Cats shutting them out 37-0 at Mosaic Stadium.

This game will be another test for the team to see how much they've grown and how much the veteran experience added to the team makes a difference. Last year in the Labour Day Classic they destroyed the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 52-0, and then followed that up with a squeaker against the Bombers in the Banjo Bowl.

Spencer Moore set to make CFL debut

As the will he or won't he continues for Darian Durant, we do know one player who will be in the lineup.

Hamilton's Spencer Moore will make his CFL and Roughrider debut Saturday in Guelph against the Tiger-Cats.

Your first professional game is always one to remember, but this one will be extra special for the fullback, being from Hamilton, playing CIS football at McMaster and even growing up a Ti-Cats fan.

"It's definitely something special, I grew up watching the Ti-Cats and going to Ti-Cats game," said Moore.
