Didn't the Riders employee a guy who tried to bang his babysitter while high on prescription drugs? As their GM??

Look at how quickly the Stamps completely distanced themselves from Reynolds
Ok but I think you are blurring the lines of what you are talking about.

You refer to the organization but then you also make reference to "fans" as if there is some universal collective of opinion.

The organization itself can be referred to as making decisions, the whole is represented by the individuals. When you refer to the most recent issues, yeah it makes sense, it was an organization issue and even if it is only a few members of the organization doing this, it is irrelevant because the entire organization is held responsible.

But then you started talking about the fanbase defending things. As frequently happens on CP, people get called out for referencing fanbases as having collective opinions, mainly because it makes no sense. There is no such thing as a collective opinion for a fanbase.

Since I didn't want to lump all Stamps fans together, I asked you how you feel about instances where the Stamps have signed less than desirable players. I certainly wouldn't expect you to speak for the entire fanbase, nor would it make any sense, since you can't.

im not going to address bizarre and offensive accusations that I support rapists or other players actions like violence against women or anyone else. (who were all cut or released but I'm sure that doesn't matter to anyone)

Nor do I think it is remotely appropriate to turn a sports rivalry into a truely sickening way to bash myself, an entire fan base and province by making disgusting accusations that cheering for a team means someone supports violence against women or sexual assault.

I'll leave you guys to it though if that's what is thread is gonna turn into. I want no part of that. You wanna get back to making jokes about cheating and tractors, you let me know.

In cecils defense, captain brought up the criminal stuff first and he just responded in kind. And now everyone seems to be acting like he brought it up to begin with.

You forgot about us also making observations about the Riders losing and idiots with carved out watermelons on their heads who can't handle their booze.

Saskatchewan is no good.

Remember when the Riders had a MLB who was going around town having unprotected sex while knowing he was HIV positive?

How does that make you feel?

This is not an accurate reflection of what happened and not fair to Tillman or his legacy. This was a one time ass pat in the midst of a prescription high that the girl involved did not think enough of at the time to even report let alone characterize as sexual assault. It wasn't until sometime later that she mentioned it to her mother who freaked out and the 'justice' machine rolled forward. This is a case where the punishment was incongruent with the crime. I'm not saying he's innocent, just trying to correct a misconception regarding what happened. There was no attempt to 'bang the babysitter'.

"Grope the babysitter" then. Fine.

He got high on prescription drugs and touched an underage person without permission in a sexual way.

Yep. Much better. I stand corrected.

Definitely not Riders material. The babysitter wasn't even related to him.

Except it wasn't an ass pat, go back and look at the records it was a full on grind.

That's right, it was more serious than an ass pat. That said, he was granted an absolute discharge.

I honestly can't think of another franchise that has as many morally bankrupt fans as the Roughriders.

Fans of this classless organization are now suggesting that they boycott games outside Regina to hurt the CFL pocketbook and other clubs.

So instead of following the rules the Riders should attempt to do financial harm on the CFL. Because... Riders?

Awesome. One good thing in a sad world where the CFL folds is the blades and pats can have foaming at the mouth fans and the rest of Canada can forget about the complete pigs for fans that exist in that crap hole province.
