Duron Carter takes Riders fans to the movies in Toronto

Duron Carter organized a Riders movie get together in Toronto before the East Final.

Carter treated fans to ‘Justice League’ at 55 Bloor Street West, and picked up the tab.

“I might have to go take out a loan” Carter joked. “Hopefully it’s full, that’s what Rider Nation is supposed to be about.”

The Riders Most Outstanding Player just didn’t want to go alone.

“Nobody wants to go to a movie by themselves, that seems kind of lonely so I might as well have all the people that want to be with me in the movie with me,” Carter said.

He put out a poll to see what time would suit the green and white faithful best.

There is one rule to follow.

If he could choose one of the Justice League characters to be Carter went off the board.

“I would be the guy that you don’t see, I’m the guy on the intercom, the communications guy, safe in the ship, away from everybody just telling them where the enemies are, I’m not part of the fighting,” Carter explained.

“I want to stay safe and chill, I want to do the celebrating with the justice league, the justice league party I’m definitely there.”

  1. Wow.
    That is laser sharp focus on the eve of the biggest game of your life.

      I get the feeling that If you ever played sports in your life, you would have been one of those players so tightly wound up in big games, that you would choke when the play came your way. You have to know when to relax.

      • lovecanada // November 18, 2017 at 1:14 pm //

        There is a fine line between this and being lose. I agree players need a distraction the night before. A movie with a few teams mates would be an excellent idea. But this goes well beyond that IMO. This will zap too much focus from him

        • Lancaster/Reed // November 18, 2017 at 1:25 pm //

          I dont think you understand carter at all. The attention is what he thrives on. It motivates him.
          On another note, it took a few posts of yours to realize, but , donkey is back. Youve tried to tone it down a little, but first post, (and negative of course) on a rider article? Dead giveaway. The only surer sign of a donkey post is calling mcmahon “ historic” .

          • justforkicks // November 18, 2017 at 1:35 pm //

            Lancaster/Reed you must be typing on your phone again. Pretty sure you meant hysterical mcmahon. Easy mistake to make!

          • Awesome watching you get owned Lancaster you just can’t resist can you

          • Lancaster/Reed // November 19, 2017 at 12:35 am //

            So pointing out that a 5 time loser sneaks back onto 3down means im getting owned? Omg, youre a moron. Is donkey your dad or something? Your mom?

        • What the hell are you talking about?They did all they had to do to prepare and I am positive they are ready,do you honestly think Jones disagrees with this.Listen to the locker room speeches”Enjoy this win go out have some fun and come back and get to work the next day.”He encourages them to have fun.

    • LOL really? That’s your big critique?

      This reeks of somebody trying to find a flaw because they want it to be true rather than actually seeing a flaw and pointing it out.

      Grow up.

  2. We will see if he remembers to wipe the popcorn butter off of his fingers on Sunday

    This is actually pretty cool – it is pretty clear that Carter has embraced Rider Nation as his people.

    It is this level of fan interaction that makes the CFL the best football league on the planet. No level of hype and big-name-pop-stars running the side-show entertainment can match real players interacting with real fans.

    We need more of this. Kudos to Carter and the Riders for making this happen for their fans.

    • Lancaster/Reed // November 18, 2017 at 12:04 pm //

      I cant imagine something like this happening in any other professional league. The cfl, and their fans are pretty unique in some aspects.

  4. Kudos to Duron -just part of the community

  5. Great way to relax on a game day eve. He’s not out partying or drinking. Also note worthy he is going to a 4pm show. Lots of time for sleep

  6. RiderPrider77 // November 18, 2017 at 12:38 pm //

    Let’s make sure the players make curfew after the movie!

  7. lovecanada // November 18, 2017 at 1:17 pm //

    Please remember there will be many wide eyed children in the theater for this. Not to see Carter but the movie. Please don’t ruin it with “Lets go riders” chants…..seriously.

    • Lancaster/Reed // November 18, 2017 at 1:45 pm //

      That would at least make the kids wonder who a “ rider “ is, they would look it up on their phones, and eventually learn that there is a football league in canada, and that toronto actually has a team in the league. Sounds like a win to me.

    • Shut the feck up Donkey. You’re the biggest loser in Canada.

    • Your faux concern for the preservation of a good movie going experience for “wide-eyed” children is 100% transparent. What’s really going on is “how can I blatantly insult the Roughriders/Roughrider fans without it looking like that’s what I’m trying to do and instead look like a Considerate Person™ who is just trying to look out for others.”

      You’re blatantly obvious and not nearly as clever as you think you are. You should either:

      A) Up your trolling game because right now you’re a D- troll and at best and embarrass yourself with every attempt, or failing that:
      B) Grow the hell up.

      • lovecanada // November 18, 2017 at 5:47 pm //

        Wrong. My concern is generally for the young boys and girls who want to watch their super heros with their Mom’s and Dad’s with a bunch of people around them with a reputation of doing exactly this!

        • LMAO. Really, Rider fans are known for starting “let’s go Riders” chants in a movie theater in the middle of a movie??

          You’re an idiot. And a liar. And a joke. And a D- troll.

          NO, this is zero about a realistic concern for the movie going experience of young boys and girls and 100% a pathetic attempt at finding some way of dumping on Rider fans while not looking like that’s what you’re doing.

          Which you fail at, because you suck at trolling and obviously aren’t very intelligent.

        • Lancaster/Reed // November 18, 2017 at 7:03 pm //

          Donkey, you are back from , what?, youre 4th? 5th time being kicked off 3down? According to studies, a major trait among internet trolls is narcissism. Well ,check that box with a big YES.

        • Ridersnhabs // November 18, 2017 at 10:25 pm //

          Aren’t you banned 100 feet or less from school yards etc?

    • stroker2007 // November 19, 2017 at 1:33 am //

      love canada your a moron,just sayin after reading your posts

  8. Donkey will never understand. What a waste of life this guy is. Another deadbeat Albertan. Go find a job or a woman, although both those prospects likely very challenging for you.

    • Come on Jesse dont group Stampy with Alberta i grew up in Sask and live in Alberta both great provinces he is an ignorant ass wouldnt matter where he lives

  9. I really hope he stays a Rider after this season and doesn’t try the NFL again. He’s been a great breath of fresh air as far as I’m concerned!

  10. Rick cowan // November 18, 2017 at 3:09 pm //

    Donkey you would never find Bovine doing something like this

    • lovecanada // November 18, 2017 at 3:28 pm //

      You’re right Rick cowan
      Bo will probably choose to spend this evening at his house he bought in Calgary and spend it with his family, who also live permanently in Calgary. Bo does much charity all year round with the bulk of it during the off season (did I mention he lives here year round?) One thing coming up soon: He and his wife take single underprivileged Mother’s who have escaped abusive situations, out Christmas shopping so their children can have a Merry Christmas.
      So please find it in your heart not to judge Bo for not taking a bunch of fans, with the means to travel to Toronto to watch their team , out to a movie.

      • I never heard of Bo Levi doing that charity work. Story likely gets out in Calgary. They need to share that nationally. That’s awsome Bo and his family do this and not surprising.
        Hey I don’t have the means to travel to Toronto but it’s nice to see people that can, are and supporting the CFL. Carter does his fair share if charity work as well.

      • Thanks Bo to you and your family for doing this !

  11. What a guy DC is! A proud member of Rider Nation. He loves the CFL fans and is giving back. Stories like this get out and it promotes the league even more.

  12. Notice the only one bitter about this fun story is the Gelding. Don’t choke on your bitterness.

  13. donkeyisanidiot // November 18, 2017 at 4:01 pm //

    And Donkey continues to run the Riders down, even when one does something good!

  14. Must be sad to live a life based on hate.

  15. lovecanada // November 18, 2017 at 5:12 pm //

    I think it’s great Carter did this. If he can do this without affecting his play than fine. I’m not running him down at all.
    Did any other teammates join him?

  16. Fun dude. Well done Duron.

  17. Boy you Stamp fans are truly a sad lot. Get over yourselves.

  18. Billinburlington // November 18, 2017 at 7:47 pm //

    This ranks up there with Duron personally autographing a “worst Teamate Ever” poster some fan had at a stadium following that controversy. Both were class acts from a complex player.

  19. Rider Prider // November 18, 2017 at 8:12 pm //

    Donkey, honest question. How often does your mother spank you?? I am thinking it is not enough.

  20. Complex is s very apt term for Duron Carter. Goooooo Riders!

  21. You rider fans really are something else. There is something wrong with you, no doubt about it. Don’t know if it’s the water out there or that stuff you keep sticking up your nose. A sickening combination of arrogance, ignorance and self importance. What a band of fools.

    • Translation: “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH”

    • stroker2007 // November 19, 2017 at 1:42 am //

      you dumb ass who do you think supports most of this league,oh yeah RIDER NATION has to spread their profits around the league.Toronto has the population base at least 4 times that of Sask and they still get 13,000 to a game.Time to fold toronto.

  22. Way to go Duron great to give back to your fans, fans of the Riders and the Cfl.

  23. Anthony Kaduck // November 18, 2017 at 11:08 pm //

    Let the haters hate. This was a nice gift to the Riders supporters. It’s actually typical of the way Carter goes out of his way to meet the fans, sign autographs and talk football.

  24. BigRedMachine // November 19, 2017 at 10:49 am //

    Can’t say I’m a big DC fan but this was one heck of a great thing he did. Love the gesture…
