This is not an offical rider radio site. This is just me talking rider football with people that I have known from my years volunteering with the team.

Randy"s Take so Far
Jerome Haywood is going from the “east” to the East. Haywood signed a 1 year contract, plus an option, with the Montreal Alouettes, the leagues most Eastern team. Haywood spent the last two years with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, even playing in the 2007 Grey Cup against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.This will be Haywood’s second stint with the Al’s, the first one being in 2006, when he appeared in 11 games.Haywood entered the CFL in 2002, with the now defunct Ottawa Renegades and has a career total of 223 tackles and 29 sacks in 107 games.The woeful Hamilton Tigercats have recently improved on their defence. The Ti-cats signed non-import linebacker Agustin Barrenechea.The six foot two, 235 pound Barrenechea returns to Hamilton, a city he played in for his first 3 and a half seasons. He was then traded to the Edmonton Eskimos on September 11th, 2007.Barrenechea has a total of 276 tackles (40 via special teams), three QB sacks and five picks in just 72 career CFL games.The Eskimos released him on Thursday, an odd move, seeing as “Augie” was the teams leading tackler
