The winds of change are blowing in the Canadian Football League.
The young men push onward and those well loved, well travelled athletes take a moment or more to reflect on their past glories and take the next step.
This year the teams of the league are not wasting time on what is next, or who’s next. There is movement, signings and departures.
Saskatchewan, like most of the teams, have a healthy number of free-agency signings that can or will not take place. The changes come fast and furious at times – which would be with the signing of Zach Collaros, the release of Kevin Glenn and the retirement of Chris Getzlaf. What a roller coaster of emotions!
2018 is still so fresh, let’s see what else happens heading toward CFL Week in Winnipeg – many are probably already planning a road trip in March. The season changes give us more bye weeks, a Grey Cup that remains late in November and promise of fresh faces breaking into the line-ups right across the country.
The lore of Rider Nation continues. We will all have our fond recollections of passes, completions, dodged tackles, hurdling over linemen, dekes running up the field and “waggles”, interceptions and picks! Rider Nation is hard pressed to forget our players, coaches, wins or losses.
Comes a time. That time of a change for the Saskatchewan Roughrider guard is an evolving process that we are all front row for.
