Interesting thing to say because it has been stated by players, management types and media that Edm, Wpg and B.C all have facilities that are stated to rival a lot of NFL teams, you guys have a new nice stadium and good for the league but it isn't going to be a deciding factor in players going there. And 33 k at moment, but history shows in Sask that ineptness and losing has fans staying away in droves..recall 2 telethons and selling fake stocks worth squat to prop your butts up before

The Riders would like everyone to believe they are some kind of financial juggernaut that is immune to having a crappy team.

Here are the facts:
2016 profit $33,983
2015 LOSS $4,267,935
Merch sales in 2016 down 1 million dollars from 2015 for a loss of 20% merch revenue
40 million dollar loan to service immediately and a further 25 million to service in the near future to be paid over 30 years.

Much like the new stadium saved our attendance numbers a few years ago their new stadium will artificially prop theres up this year. Next year the shine is off the diamond.
