The Saskatchewan Roughriders nine-game injured list may have set a record on Tuesday.
Andy Fantuz and Barrin Simpson's names were added to the list which has now grown to 17 players.
The two players will now join quarterback Darian Durant on the sideline to watch the final two games of the regular season.
"The thing we need to do in order to get players on our practice roster is (have them) be on the nine-game. It gives us an opportunity to look at younger players," explains Head Coach Ken Miller.
Former CFL linebacker Reggie Hunt has signed a one-day contract with the green and white to retire a Roughrider.
In six seasons with the Riders (2002-07) Hunt had 452 defensive tackles, 27 quarterback sacks, 26 tackles for a loss, eight fumble returns, seven forced fumbles and five interceptions in 106 regular season games. Hunt was named a West Division All-Star in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, a CFL all-star in 2007 and was a member of the 2007 Grey Cup championship team.
"I have tremendous respect for Reggie," stated Roughriders Head Coach Ken Miller.
Saskatchewan Roughriders' Darian Durant will watch the rest of the team's season from the sidelines.
"I'm out," proclaimed the quarterback after Tuesday's practice.
"It gives Coach a chance to evaluate Cole (Bergquist) and Ryan (Dinwiddie). It gives other guys a chance to get in and show what they can do."
Durant admits he's suffering from other injuries that haven't been reported but would not divulge what those injuries were.
The 29 year old says he had a lengthy meeting with Miller about whether he should take any more snaps this season.
Premier Brad Wall and challenger Dwain Lingenfelter engaged in a political debate on Tuesday night at the CBC, which focused on issues like potash royalties, seniors' affordability of living, role of government in economic structuring, and post-secondary tuition costs.
Potash was, however, the most recurring and overarching topic.
Wall maintained that the five per cent Saskatchewan keeps in potash royalties from companies like PotashCorp and BHP Billiton, small in relation to other provinces, is worth it because it incentivizes corporations to invest.
The Saskatchewan Party's full election platform is now out, released to cheering supporters in Saskatoon. It is fully costed and the numbers are in stark contrast to the NDP. And that is the message Brad Wall is now taking to voters.
All the promises made by the Saskatchewan Party this election total $414million. Very low compared to the NDP's $3.1 billion. And Wall is stressing that is unaffordable.
“The biggest threat to where we are as a province is deficit,” said Wall.
The NDP's full platform is now released and fully costed, with promises and commitments made including offering affordable utilities and taxes totals about $2.7 billion.
But the NDP could face criticism that the increased spending is reliant on keeping more potash revenues and doesn't factor in the possibility of those same revenues drastically falling.
“This is well within the realm, it has third-party validation as being doable and so we’re comfortable that this is a platform we can implement,” said Lingenfelter Thursday morning.
The news of Gadhafi's death Thursday morning had one Libyan living in Regina ecstatic, but also in shock.
“It’s amazing news to hear, to wake up (to), I just want to be there now and celebrate – with all Libyans,” said Diya Ramadan.
Ramadan, who spent 16 years in Tripoli, said revolution in Libya is an example of why people need to get out and vote, even in our own provincial election.
A behind the scenes look at how campaign annoucnements go for both the Sask Party and the NDP.
The NDP’s latest campaign announcement involves a property tax rebate of up to a $1,000 promised for seniors not living in a government-run or -funded housing facility.
Party leader Dwain Lingenfelter says this announcement comes in conjunction with the NDP’s other policies on rent control.
“[Seniors] would benefit from both the rent control and also that portion of the rent that would be the property tax.” said Lingenfelter.
