RWB CFL Podcast #167 -- The Name Changes

7/26/2020
Considering that no manner of professional football is happening on either side of the Canada/US border, this July has been historic. In the NFL, the professional team in Washington, D.C., will finally be ditching its racial slur of a name; meanwhile, the CFL’s Edmonton franchise will no longer be known as the “Eskimos.” Naturally, Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis are excited about these needed changes and kick around a few aspects of the move(s) forward,...

RWB CFL Podcast #166 – What we talk about in June 2020 w/special guest Ryan Ballantine

7/3/2020
What do CFL fans talk about when not talking about the CFL during a suspended season?

RWB podcast #165 -- CFL present & future w/guest Josh Smith

6/24/2020
We can assure you that this is the correct version of episode 164. The duplication of episode 163 was due only to technical difficulty and was not at all sloppiness on Os's part. Yeah, that's the ticket... CFL football season may be postponed, but the CFL podcasting game goes on! Rouge, white & Blue podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis are joined by he of Podskee Wee Wee, Josh Smith, to commiserate on strange times for football, sports and world. The RWB deep-dives into this week's...

CFL football season may be postponed, but the CFL podcasting game goes on!

The RWB deep-dives into this week's statement from CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie, the possibilities for the 2020 season and Josh happily talks Os out of his doomsday scenario for Canadian football.

RWB CFL podcast #164: Talking 1995 Baltimore Stallions w/head coach* Greg Smith

6/12/2020
Normally, the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast would be celebrating that the question “#IsItJuneYet?” is no longer relevant, but of course this is 2020. Thus the only CFL football happening right now is of the sim variety. For example, the Cold Snap Dream Canadian Football League, of which RWB co-host is commissioner. Joining Joe and co-host Os Davis for analysis of and discussion about the CSDCFL is Greg Smith. Greg is the head coach – but not the owner! – of the Cold Snap 1995 Baltimore...

Happy New Year! (Is it too late for that?) The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast returns for the 2020 season, and we're bringing screenwriter, actor and comedian Kenny Stevenson with us! Kenny's aboard the RWB to discuss how free agency has treated his BC Lions after a 2019 they'd certainly like to forget.

RWB CFL podcast #162 -- How about those Winnipeg Blue Bombers!

12/6/2019
Rouge, White & Blue CFL Podcast host Joe Pritchard would like to remind everyone that his beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers are the 2019 Grey Cup champions -- and does so on this episode of the RWB. In what is becoming something of a tradition at the RWB, Joe has returned from Calgary replete with a swell case of the Grey Cup Plague but nevertheless is ready to expound to RWB co-host Os Davis on one jealousy-inducing great time at Grey Cup week. And yeah, we chat a little about the CFL's...

RWB CFL Podcast #161 -- Grey Cup preview with Rod Villagomez

11/21/2019
What else would the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast be about this week other than the 10th Grey Cup? RWB's regular co-host Joe Pritchard was apparently so excited to experience a Grey Cup championship game involving his beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers that he practically sprinted to Calgary from Wisconsin, leaving podcasting in the dust for the week. So joining RWB co-host Os Davis is our compadre Rod Villagomez of the Wood Cookie Sawcast. Os and Rod talk ... well, what else but the Grey...

RWB Podcast #160: CFL playoffs round 2

11/14/2019
What else would the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast be focused on this week but round 2 of the CFL playoffs? (After co-host Os Davis put a capper on the vanquished 2019 Montreal Alouettes, that is.) Heck, we only gratuitously mention the so-called "coaching carousel" so as to destroy one specific listener's liver. As for those conference championship games, RWB co-host Joe Pritchard lays out the case for his Winnipeg Blue Bombers to upset the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina, and Os...

RWB Podcast #159: CFL playoffs round 1

11/8/2019
Incredibly enough, the 2019 CFL playoffs are here already; it seems like just yesterday we were composing tweets ending in #IsItJuneYet and here we are, with three teams eliminated and two more joining them on Sunday. Rouge White & Blue co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard are on tenterhooks as they await playoff Sunday for their beloved Montreal Alouettes and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, respectively. But before diving into rants about point spreads (the Edmonton Eskimos are just 1½-point...

RWB CFL podcast #158: Andrew Harris denied

10/31/2019
O boy, does Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard have a beef. The team awards/nominations for league awards have been released by the league, and Joe, like several members of his beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers is quite steamed at the exclusion of Andrew Harris from said lists. And co-host Os Davis has a hot take on Joe’s hot take. However, before the RWB totally descends into Pardon the First High Horn-like exclamation and exhortation, Os and Joe manage to talk some Canadian...

RWB CFL podcast #157: Can you believe CFL season's almost over?

10/24/2019
Two weeks remain in the regular season and, though three playoff spots in the West have yet to be determined, but Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis can't help but look forward to the playoffs. And this despite their favourite teams -- the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes, respectively -- aren't exactly looking like worldbeaters going into the playoffs. Speaking of playoffs, we've got your playoff scenarios and pick 'em calls for week 20; Joe...

RWB CFL podcast #156: Toronto Argonauts blown up

10/10/2019
Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis are talking a lot of Toronto Argonauts this eek, namely in terms of the shakeups going down in that franchise's front office and on the field. The RWB discuss just what Pinball Clemons might bring to the Argos as a first-time general manager, and Joe gives a salient reason or two why Winnipeg Blue Bombers shouldn't be at all pleased with the acquisition of Zach Collaros from Toronto. Then it's on to playoff scenarios for...

RWB CFL podcast #155: Os and Joe are sad about their teams

10/3/2019
Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard truly enjoy recording episodes every week, but this time out they're a bit sad at the recent performance of and looming fates awaiting their favoured Montreal Alouettes and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, respectively. No matter -- the proverbial show must go on! This week, the RWB takes a deep dive into the latest odds on winning the Grey Cup with particular reference to the question, "How can the Hamilton Tiger-Cats be considered...

RWB CFL Podcast #154 w/guest Travis Currah: Talking competitive eating, Bombers choking (?)

9/26/2019
The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast is pleased as pizza pie to have Travis Currah of the 2 and Out podcast joining us this week – but would you believe he’s not here to talk about football? Instead, Travis tells us about an upcoming event in his second- (or maybe third-) favorite sport, competitive eating. For the second year running at the Grey Cup, Travis will be taking on Zach Evans in a live event as part of Grey Cup Week; the big boys will be risking their digestive systems for charity...

RWB CFL podcast #153: Very early playoff scenarios

9/19/2019
Sure, on this episode of the Rouge White & Blue podcast co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard talk last week's and the upcoming CFL games, but more interestingly, they're bringing the early (early!) playoff scenarios to be determined this weekend -- with six weeks left to go in the 2019 season, mind you. Crazy! Playoff implications are on the line for the Calgary Stampeders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and the BC Lions-Ottawa Redblacks could well be surprisingly...

RWB CFL podcast #152: Conquering hero returns (again)!

9/12/2019
On this episode of the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast, co-host Joe Pritchard tells us of his latest trip to Winnipeg, this time buoyed by his beloved Blue Bombers' domination of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in this year's Banjo Bowl. Co-host Os Davis, meanwhile, has a rant on some Facebook activity by members of a certain team's fanbase last week -- of course, that's what he gets for taking Facebook too seriously. Joe and Os also look forward to next week's games and the remaining games on...

RWB CFL podcast #151: The Stamps are back

9/5/2019
Rumour has it that a big professional football league in the home nation of Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis kicks off this week -- it's called the NFL or something -- but the RWB only (mostly) has eyes for the good ol' Canadian league, especially since the defending champion Calgary Stampeders flipped the switch to return to dominant form last weekend. Sdaly, Joe must lament last week's Winnipeg Blue Bombers loss and fears another this weekend as he gets...
