Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell insinuated that the Saskatchewan Roughriders play fast and loose with CFL roster rules in a series of tweets Tuesday night. Mitchell started it with this Tweet linking to Saskatchewan’s bevy of roster moves earlier in the day…

Needless to say, this got the easily antagonized patrons of Rider Nation all riled up. A sampling…

But Mitchell stuck to his guns…

And he took some more crap from Rider fans…

And gave it right back…

This was a good one…

When you end a tweet with your jersey number, that is the hot fire emoji.

Mitchell seems to be insinuating that the Riders have players practicing with the club that aren’t on the roster. Teams are limited to a 46-man active roster and a ten player practice roster. Players on the one-game injured list can practice as well.

The Riders were also fined $15,000 for violating the CFL’s ratio rules during a July 16 game against the B.C. Lions. The league requires that teams play seven Canadians on offence or defence during the entire game.

In related news, the Riders host Calgary on Saturday…
