Riders’ Twitter to Bombers fan: ‘How’s your QB situation going?’

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have rubbed a little salt on Matt Nichols’ knee.

The Riders fired off a cheeky tweet Thursday night in response to a Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan who had the audacity to chirp the team’s quarterbacks. The target: the injury to the Bombers starting quarterback and resulting chaos.

Predictably, Rider fans enjoyed the response from their team and have showered the Tweet with likes and gifs of appreciation. A sampling…

Alright, you get the picture.

While one can certainly question the wisdom of a Bomber fan chirping a Riders squad with not one but two quarterbacks with CFL experience while debating the relative merits of Chris¬†Streveler and Alex Ross, using an injury to clap back against said fan seems a little uncouth… like taking a $70,000 signing bonus then retiring.
