CFL fans waited so long for resumption of play after Covid-19 settled in worldwide, and now the “new” season of Canadian football is halfway over. And so this week on the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast, co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard take stock of whether the CFL playoff picture is essentially already set.

We’ve also got other questions to consider like, What to make of these Ottawa Redblacks? Are the Edmonton Elks done? Could the Calgary Stampeders actually cross over to the East bracket for the playoffs? And can Joe avoid discussing the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after a week in which they didn’t play?

These questions answered (mostly) plus a look at week 9 games plus week 10’s wacky Wednesday night game on this episode of the RWB.

    RWB CFL podcast #192: On momentum, placekickers, betting and, inevitably, can anyone beat the Bombers?

    35:56

    The Rouge White & Blue Podcast hopes all those who didn’t sufficiently enjoy the CFL regular season in 2021 were tuned in to last week’s playoffs, scintillating as both games were. For co-host Os Davis: the Montreal Alouettes-Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Calgary Stampeders-Saskatchewan Roughriders games boiled down to a single question each: “Does momentum actually exist?” and “Can a loss in football be blamed on one individual (particularly in a you-had-one-job scenario)?”, respectively. Naturally, RWB co-host Joe Pritchard deftly supplies answers. Then, as they say, it’s on to next week and the CFL conference championships: the publicly-perceived coin toss pitting the Ticats against the Toronto Argonauts and the potential blowout of Saskatchewan at those ridiculously good Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Are we destined for the chalk matchup of Argos-Bombers? Could we get the Angleo Mosca Memorial Bowl with the Ticats enacting revenge? And do the Riders have any chance? All this plus a brief look at the CFL’s year-end award nominees (mostly so Os can declare once again that Adam Bighill was robbed of the MOP) and Joe’s fantasy football progress in the DFS-format CFL podcaster league.

    RWB podcast #191: The 2021 CFL playoffs begin (also, about that USFL thing…)

    29:19

    For Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard, this part of the season is a bad news/good news situation. The bad news is that the 2021 season is almost over – and with four fewer weeks of games and no preseason, CFL 2021 literally feels like it has just begun. The good news is that it’s playoff time and the games are on Sunday, really the proper day for professional football. After crawling his way past the .500 mark and coming off a 4-1 week, Joe feels particularly qualified to pick the first round of CFL playoff games, namely Montreal Alouettes at Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Calgary Stampeders at Saskatchewan Roughriders. Os chips in a probably unpopular take on the West game that he’s likely to lose money betting on as well. Finally, considering that one RWB co-host has a twitter handle named for the original USFL, Joe and Os are briefly diverted by a little speculation on the upcoming USFL 2.0 on FOX launch. Happy Thanksgiving holidays, USA CFL fans! The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Who can prevent a Bombers-Argos Grey Cup…?

    RWB CFL podcast #190: The Alouettes win! The Alouettes win! (against the Winnipeg second team…)

    35:07

    If you’re still having trouble believing the 2021 CFL season is almost over, you’re not alone. Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and OS Davis might still be considered in denial, because they’re still talking fantasy football and playing CFL Pick ‘Em in week 15. Os also looks to Joe to justify the swaggering overconfidence on display in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers section of CFL Twitterand. How dare they suggest the Montreal Alouettes win in week 14 was meaningless – second-stringers or no! How dare they dismiss every East team as a threat to a repeat Grey Cup championship! (Come to think of it, maybe they have a point…) And then it’s onto the playoffs. The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Is it next June yet…?

    RWB CFL Podcast #189: Why can‘t Adam Bighill be MOP?

    41:24

    Full disclosure: Much of this episode of the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast is devoted to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers but, hey, somebody stop 'em and will change the subject. RWB co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard talk the (potentially first) win over the Montreal Alouettes, specifically whether William Stanback should've gotten the call on the last meaningful play of the game for the Als; the possibility of Adam Bighill for 2021 MOP; and which of the East contenders Joe wants his Bombers to play in the Grey Cup. We've also got picks and predictions for week 14 games, including (spoiler!) Os's insistence on laying money on the Montreal money line...

    RWB CFL podcast #188: Playoff picture much clearer

    34:34

    The Rouge White & Blue Podcast sees the end of the 2021 CFL season in sight (sadly) as week 13 goes into the books as a relatively unenlightening slate of games if taken individually but drastically clearing up the playoff picture. No, RWB co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis can’t stop talking about the glory of Plaay tabletop gaming, but they manage to keep it to a minimum in assessing the postseason chances of teams like the Calgary Stampeders (looking good) and the Montreal Alouettes (of which the same cannot be said). The RWB then takes a look ahead to week 14, with Joe offering up a very salient tip for would-be CFL bettors about seemingly disrespectful point spreads…. The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Bombers -10½? Dude.

    RWB CFL podcast #187: Bombers vs GOATs

    48:11

    Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Os Davis avoids labeling contemporary players, teams and seasons with the increasingly thrown-around sobriquet of “Greatest Of All-Time,” but after their 45-0 demolition of BC Lions last weekend, the 2021 Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ possible historical significance is impossible for even curmudgeons like Os to ignore. And so Os with RWB co-host Joe Pritchard discuss the similarities and differences between the ’21 Bombers and a handful of some great teams of the CFL’s past 40 years. But wait, as they say, there’s more! We’ve got a wrap of week 12 games, a theory that CFL teams may as well just forget about ever playing for a field goal when inside the opponent’s 10-yard-line, playoff scenarios and who to choose and/or pick in week 13 of CFL Pick ‘Em… The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Slightly hysterical – I mean, *historical* – about the Blue Bombers…

    RWB CFL podcast #186: Moving on from Rod Black – or are we?

    47:56

    The 2021 CFL season gets ever knottier, but the Rouge White & Blue Podcast has even more on the agenda than playoff scenarios – though the RWB’s got those, too. RWB co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard touch on any number of topics this week, including the resignation of the incomparable Rod Black from TSN and thus CFL game broadcasts, and the continued building up of Joe’s den at home, which is slowly resembling an informal Winnipeg Blue Bombers Hall of Fame. Also on tap is a wrap of week 11, followed by forecasts for week 12 and a few playoff scenarios, including one in which five teams end up at 7-7 – well possible with five weeks to go in the season. O, and Joe’s totally stoked on Winnipeg’s acquisition of Sergio Castillo, too… The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Did know you that Rod Black’s son plays in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system…?

    RWB podcast #185: One playoff scenario for week 11

    51:29

    Earlier than usual does the Rouge White & Blue podcast get to delve into CFL playoff scenarios, and this week co-host Joe Pritchard presents us with such scenarios. Well, scenario (singular), really… Beyond this, Joe and RWB co-host Os Davis have much to discuss with regard to CFL week 10, the upcoming week 11 and what went down in Edmonton Elks land in-between. The RWB talks the statement(s) delivered by the Toronto Argonauts, the old-school domination of the Elks by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the degenerating Saskatchewan Roughriders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the resurgent Calgary Stampeders, the suddenly tragic Montreal Alouettes and the incredibly shortsighted, ham-handed firing of Edmonton radio analyst Eddie Steele . All this and Joe’s forecast for the three week 11 games, which are guaranteed to be predictions or your money back… The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: We just trying to win a game here!

    RWB podcast #184: On recreating 1980s CFL and debating 2020s CFL

    49:32

    On this episode of the Rouge White & Blue podcast, things begin with a diversion into CFL past, specifically co-host Joe Prtichard’s current task in recreating the 1982 and ’86 CFL seasons for the Plaay.com tabletop format. Fellow tabletop enthusiast, sports history junkie and RWB co-host geeks out with Joe on the intricacies of sports board gaming before snapping back to the realities of the 2021 CFL season… …namely, the same old/same old focus of ’21, those evermore unstoppable-seeming Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Also: Is the CFL experiencing a crisis of offensive line talent? Finally, because the RWB can’t go to the well of masochism that is playing CFL Pick ‘Em often enough, Joe and Os attempt to choose winners in the five(!) week 10 games… The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Just shut up and pick the Bombers…
