It’s Clearly A B.C. Conspiracy

What other explanation could there for our Saskatchewan Roughriders’ loss to the previously 0-5 team? The B.C. Lions were using draconian standards at their stadium to suppress our spirit, such as banning watermelon helmets.

From CBC Saskatchewan:

“There’s been a directive. No watermelon helmets allowed at the game,” said Lacey, a former Regina resident. “We smashed them right in front of the security guard. They didn’t like that, but what could we do?”

Lacey said he’s been told officials were worried rowdy Rider fans might chuck their helmets, although he said that’s unlikely.

More likely, he said, is that Lions were trying to quiet down Riders’ supporters.

That is one-hundred percent, definitely it.

  1. The Riders lost because they suck.
    Regardless of this, the CFL is supposed to be a fun-loving league, so discouraging rival fans seems kind of anti-CFL to me.

  2. Ever since Port Moody’s Great Gallagher Disaster of 1987 there’s been a real chill around watermelons, or any gourd-like foodstuff, in public in the lower mainland.
