Riderville Roundup – April 28

It’s officially CFL Draft week and Training Camps begin in TWO WEEKS!! We did it, folks… the offseason is over!! 

Time for this week’s review of everything that happened with the green and white, it’s your Riderville Roundup!


Only a couple of official moves from the Saskatchewan Roughriders this week. They officially transferred O-Lineman Logan Bandy to the retired list and released D-Lineman Brayden Thomas and Linebacker Tommy Bringi. Though, Bringi wasn’t on the team’s roster anyway, but the move showed up on the CFL’s Transactions page. Weird. 


And that’s about it. The team is finalizing their preparations for Tuesday’s CFL Global and Canadian Drafts. What do the Riders need in the Canadian Draft? I took a look at the current Canadian contingent on the green and white and gave my thoughts on what positions the Riders should be looking at using their draft picks on



With the Draft coming up, I started thinking about some of the good picks that General Manager Jeremy O’Day has made during his time as GM of the Riders. I gave my Top 5 Draft Picks under JO and judging by how he’s done in the Draft over his tenure, we will definitely see at least one more star added in this year.


Finally, we have a contest running here at the Piffles Podcast! We are giving away this signed A.J. Ouellette Rider football to one lucky person! The contest is simple… go to our Facebook or X (Twitter) page, give us a FOLLOW and SHARE/REPOST the contest post! That’s it! We will do a live draw on Tuesday following the CFL Draft when we do our next show!
