Former Saskatchewan Roughriders President & CEO joined me on the phone late last week for half an hour. It wasn’t the first time I’ve chatted with him, but it was the hardest.


After 46 chemo treatments, Mr. Hopson is now going to focus on the quality of his time left with us.


In this interview, he gives a health update, shares some stories from his playing days and time as Rider President (including turning DOWN Mick Jagger’s post concert party!) and gives some thoughts on the 2024 version of his team, the Roughriders.


Thank you for everything, Mr. Hopson! See you at the home opener!
