Winnipeg Jordan ,

Sharp focus, broad scope

Things I love about this pod:

1) all things 🇨🇦🏈 - college, NFL, media, business, league as well as CFL games & players - anything with Canadian or CFL connection

2) disciplined episodes - they know what they’re gonna cover, they say their piece, they move on - bang bang bang! No beating topics to death, no messy transitions.

3) opinionated - they got strong ones, they clash, they got reasons - sparks fly!

4) knowledgeable - they have inside info, they have history, they have 🏈 smarts

5) fun & passionate - they deeply love the Canadian game, they keep it light and loose

Discovered the pod sometime during the 2023 season. Soon became my main CFL pod. Thank you for a great show!

Barbarian Burke ,

Great idea!

Your comment/idea to have current CFLers pumped up in and around those players hometowns or colleges is a great idea.

Keep up the good work fellas.
