Trivia[edit | edit source]

In one of Chuck Downfield's remarks before the game he tries to remember when he played for either the Ravensdale Roughriders or The Ravensdale Rough Riders. A spoof of a time where the Canadian Football League had two teams with almost identical names: the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and the Ottawa Rough Riders.
