Warren Woods is the latest name in sports joining a star team of broadcasters -- not just on the Green Zone with Jamie Nye -- but also CJME’s morning show of Himpe, Don and Sam Maciag.
He becomes part of the CJME team July 2, when he will join John Himpe, Don Saxon and Sam Maciag in the mornings to deliver sports coverage 5:30-8:30 a.m.
Then, he will join co-host Jamie Nye on the Green Zone, which also features Darrell Davis. Catch him at 4-5 p.m. each weekday. For the rest of the show, Glen Suitor steps in to join Nye.
The Riders might have their first significant injury as offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld was seen Monday using crutches with a boot on his foot.
He's been out for a few days now with a calf injury.
The team didn't shed much light on the situation, though it's believed he has a broken fibula.
Import Jose Valdez has been working most of the snaps in his place, but head coach Corey Chamblin says they have options.
“There are a couple of other guys we’re going to rotate at that position... some non-import guys,” said Chamblin.
Saskatchewan Roughriders Kory Sheets had more to deal with this offseason than getting ready for season.
Sheets was charged with 'Battery Domestic Violence' in Florida. Police were called to a home in the Tampa area around 11 p.m. on Jan. 18. Sheets was charged later that night.
The charge came to the attention of News Talk Radio's Jamie Nye when his mugshot made its way on to Twitter late last week.
A lot is expected of the Saskatchewan Roughriders offense this season.
If the loss in the West semi-final against Calgary was any kind of indication, they may have found something that worked in that game. Add the CFL's all time leader in receiving yards, and one of the league's top offensive minds, all of a sudden the sky is the limit.
We're now one week into the Roughriders 2013 training camp.
In a lot of ways camp has been pretty uneventful so far, but that's to be expected without the same battle for starting jobs that we saw last year.
The off season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders was filled with change.
Just about every position has a number of new faces, that is except the offensive line. Basically the five players who finished last season as the starters, will be the starters this year when healthy.
"It's a big help," said Brendon LaBatte about having the same group back. "It's a lot of smoother when you know what the guy beside you, how he's going to fit it."
The 2013 Saskatchewan Roughriders certainly don't lack in big name talent.
We all know the names, but there are definitely some other names you should be keeping an eye on as we head towards the team's first pre-season game on June 14.
Three players who came into the camp under the radar, but have definitely been making an impact so far are receiver Kierrie Johnson, running back Stephfon Green and defensive back Ramzee Robinson.
For Johnson and Green, the formula for being noticed has been fairly simple so far. Speed, and lots of it.
Most fans of the Saskatchewan Roughriders would likely agree that Rider nation is something special, but now a study done by a student at the University of Regina shows that may be right, especially when looking at female Rider fans.
Katie Sveinson is a first-year Masters student in the Faculty of Kinesiology who was looking for a topic to study.
"When I decided to do my masters, I kind of decided I would like to research sports fans, being one myself," Sveinson said.
Defence wins championships, but the off-season acquisitions made by the Riders this winter has one Roughrider alum thinking the offence is the side to watch.
"Look at a player like (Kory) Sheets. If he can be what he was last year in this system that (George) Cortez runs, you're going to see him put up huge numbers," said former Rider wide-receiver and 2007 Grey Cup Champion Matt Dominguez.
So far a lot of attention has been paid to the Riders defensive line, and rightfully so.
There's been a lot of change there, and there's certainly a lot of pressure on that group to be better.
However, one of the most interesting developments at training camp so far this year has been the linebackers. There's been plenty of rotation in and out, not only of guys who normally play linebacker, but those who don't.
