Just unbelievable. The memories of him In a bomber uniform are so recent. Way way too young.

RIP, and thank you for your time.

Wow, cancer sucks. 

I remember he and his wife embracing being in Winnipeg, if I recall correctly, they had a large number of kids.

Probably played his best ball here, culminating in a GC in 2019. 

33 is far too young, he should still be playing.
Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

Wow, just wow.  Roh was a much-loved player, and was one of our first really good DL players when our DL was struggling.  He was always upbeat and good in the pressers, and always had the right attitude in games.  My heart goes out to the family.
Never go full Rider!

That's right... I was confusing him with John Chick... don't know why...

I thought you guys/gals might like this I found the other day on the PVR.  (I keep good snippets all the time.)

Funny Roh moment video

It's from the "2018 CFL Games of the Year" TSN special 2018-11-24

(Almost as good as the Jim Barker and his "someone's gonna win and someone's gonna lose" from early 2023.)

Reread my other post on Roh, I wasn't lying.  He was always like this.  I'm sure he was well-loved in that locker room.  I was sad when we didn't re-up him that year, but I think he went over our budget and/or age range.  Funny that, seeing how much we spend on DEs the last 4-5 seasons!!

RIP Craig.
