Darren Cameron saying home opener tickets are selling well. Looks like a ton left on ticketmaster when i checked a few minutes ago. Like some sections still only half sold. Ill be nationally embarrassed if its a shitty sparse crowd.

Is there a difference between nationally embarrassed and just normal embarrassed?

Big time. Last thing i want is those melonheads thinking they are better than us and trashing our fanbase. Sure, their banjo playing, watermelon defiling, and cousin seducing is top notch, no one does it better. Ill give them that, buts thats it!

I wouldn't expect a sell out. We only sell 25k to that stadium at the best of times. Add on the fact that people are hesitant of crowds now, plus the league has been out of the national spotlight for over a year now. I think crowds are going to trickle, rather than roar back, and I won't be surprised if it happens league wide.

We also have a policy of only allowing those fully vaccinated with proof, while I believe Saskie is wide open to anybody regardless of vax status. I wonder how many people that would normally attend won't because they aren't vaccinated. Would also be interesting to know how many in Sask won't attend because they are totally open to non-vaxxers.

I don't really have much interest in someone that's been cast off at this point in camp....... our own recruits likely a better option. As Mike said, if two years of recruiting can't uncover something better than other teams castoffs, then we're likely hooped anyhow...

I think we really deep at wr if every one else stays healthy. Filling one spot with grant meredith and Nelson doesn't worry me in the short term.

I'd be surprised if Meredith wasnt given a long look too. Him and Darvin have the same body type/size for what its worth.

If Meredith is practicing I'll agree to that but it's already 10 days since he last practiced.

Some anti vaxer & his followers are planning on blocking the streets leading to IG Field before the game on August 5th. If they are allowed to do that (as in the cops do nothing to prevent it), I think they'll find out pretty fast that it was a very bad idea. 

Let’s not go inciting riots, Speed.

If you're blocking a public roadway , the cops have every reason to remove the obstruction...IF they don't there would have to be some serious repercussions following...For everyone's sake let's just hope this is just so much hot air emanating from some anti-vaxer's orifice

Stuff like this makes me more angry than I could ever properly express.

The cops are out at the intersections 2 hours before game time. And Pembina is a major provincial land line. I don't see any chance of them just doing nothing.
