Final 2014 ‘Rider Tracker- Season Recap

Insightrix Research Inc.’s ’Rider Tracker, a poll that asks a random selection of fans on the SaskWatch Research™ online panel their opinions of the ’Riders’ performance and predictions for the rest of the season, is now in its final week of 2014. Every week, 200 fans from across the province complete a survey shortly after each game is played. Watch for updates and post your thoughts and comments based on what fans are saying!

Last Game & Grey Cup Outlook.

The Green and White fought hard but it was not enough to overcome the Eskimos in the first round of the playoffs.  The ’Riders now have some time to get healthy and go back to the drawing board for next season.

However, the 102nd Grey Cup will continue on without the Green and White. As such, we asked fans who they are now cheering for and one quarter want the Hamilton Ti-Cats to take home the Cup. Another quarter of fans are not rooting for any of the teams left in the playoffs.  Despite who Saskatchewan fans are hoping to win the Cup, the majority (55%) believe that the Stampeders will take home the prize.

Next Season

Fans were also asked what they believe the Green and White need to focus on most to prepare for next season. Most commonly, 39% of fans say the ’Rider need to work on offence. In addition, fans have high hopes for next year as the preliminary Grey Cup
Confidence Index sits at +33, though 30% of fans say it is too soon to tell if the Roughriders will regain the Cup.

Talk to you next season!
