The Rouge white & Blue is a (usually) weekly podcast devoted to the CFL produced by two Americans nutty for the Canadian game.
RWB podcast #170 – On the CFL/XFL talks (What else…?)
If you’re a CFL fan, you’re thinking and talking about one topic this week, i.e. the announcement from CFL officials that the league was in discussions with the XFL about some sort of expanded partnership, and speculation naturally quickly ran rampant online.
In this episode of the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast, co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis, like many, consider the possibilities: Is this much ado about very little or is a revamping of the financially reeling CFL from top to bottom in order? The RWB mulls over everything from the ratio and the schedule to rule changes and expanded TV coverage.
And no matter how you take our hot takes, remember: It beats guessing at how much more football that Covid-19’s gonna kill before it’s over.

RWB podcast #169 – The CFL is back! Maybe. Probably.
“The CFL is back,” they said with cautious optimism, “and so are we.” After a bye year for the Canadian Football League, the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast is getting back on the metaphorical field in advance of the prospective 2021 season.
RWB co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis work the podcast-muscle memory in discussing recent and ongoing events in the CFL, including the quarterback “swap” and other key personnel and player acquisitions by the Ottawa Redblacks and Toronto Argonauts, who suddenly frighten Os the Montreal Alouettes fan a bit.
And there’s talk of Edmonton, whose 2021 has already included the abrupt departure of one head coach and the hiring of a replacement – but no word on whether Edmontonians will be backing the “EE Football Team” in five months. Joe and Os debate the merits of 10 (nine, really) possible names which emerged from the team’s suggestion box.
Finally, the RWB gets an update from some of 2019-20’s most interesting (if not necessarily the speediest) CFL action – namely the tabletop game-based Cold Snap Dream Canadian Football League. Well Warren Moon and his 1981 EE Football Team (see, that’s not great…) continue to roll for the title?

RWB podcast #168 – On the CFL’s future and Birmingham football’s past
With no CFL season to be played in 2020, what can the Rouge White & Blue Podcast co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis find to talk about? How about professional football in Alabama, for starters?
Joining the RWB for this episode is sports journalist/columnist Scott Adamson to talk his new book, The Home Team: My Bromance with Off-Brand Football. Scott talks to us about the nine professional football teams that have (briefly) called Birmingham, Alabama, home, including the Birmingham Barracudas of the CFL USA and the Birmingham Stallions of the good old USFL.
No, the RWB cannot avoid the elephant in the room and so discuss the future of the CFL, Canadian football and other major sports from whom the end may be in sight…

RWB CFL Podcast #167 -- The Name Changes
RWB CFL podcast co-hosts Os Davis & Joe Pritchard discuss the name change of the CFL's Edmonton franchise, realistic and not-so-realistic possibilities for the new one, and discussing name changes with white folks. Plus, a bit on this bizarre "baseball" thing which just started...
RWB CFL Podcast #166 – What we talk about in June 2020 w/special guest Ryan Ballantine
Os & Joe welcome on 3 Down Nation's Ryan Ballantine to talk Christion Jones, the return(?) of sports, tabletop football and great CFL teams of the past...
RWB podcast #165 -- CFL present & future w/guest Josh Smith
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 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.
Plus and update on the going-on in the Cold Snap Dream Canadian Football League, a quite interesting substitute for real football.
