The Rouge white & Blue is a (usually) weekly podcast devoted to the CFL produced by two Americans nutty for the Canadian game.
RWB CFL podcast #215: O gods, here come the Ticats..
The CFL might have been slightly short on number of games in week 15, but three games gave us plenty to discuss on the Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast.
So RWB co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis mull over items like the Edmonton Elks’ late fourth-quarter win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and the Riders’ rapidly slipping grip – formerly a stranglehold – on a playoff spot via crossover.
Like just how seriously we should take the Hamilton Tiger-Cats after they ran up the score on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Like why the Calgary Stampeders keep taking these heartbreak losses. And like how good things might get if/when Vernon Adams really gets rolling with the BC Lions.
Plus, Joe’s got playoff scenarios mostly involving West teams but including , Os has some adventures in gambling, and both the RWBs’ve got picks for next week’s games.

RWB CFL podcast #214: On blowouts and scenarios
When is a blowout not a blowout? Trick question: A blowout is always a blowout, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun.
On this episode of the Rouge White & Blue CFL podcast talks about the four emphatic wins of CFL week 14 as co-host Os Davis is relieved former Montreal starting QBs Vernon Adams Jr. and Antonio Pipkin didn’t make his Alouettes look bad while co-host Joe Pritchard enjoyed his beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers taking yet another one from the increasingly discombobulated-looking Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The RWB also marvels at the incredible trolling of fantasy football players by the Calgary Stampders, who first gave Tommy Stevens 10 carries including four touchdowns in quite possibly the GOAT fantasy vulture performance, then finished with a garbage-time KaDeem Carey TD which flipped many a matchup -- including Os’s.
Then Joe brings us playoff scenarios – playoff scenario, really – and Os crunches the numbers (and schedule) to paint an ugly picture of a CFL with just two teams over .500 at season’s end. We’ve also got picks and predictions for CFL week 14; in short, a couple of these games could get ugly again.
The Rouge White & Blue podcast: What a blowout!
RWB CFL podcast #213: Labour Day hangover (still)
You want your CFL-flavored rants? Rouge White & Blue CFL podcast co-host Os Davis’s got your rants right here. Naturally, he’s got bones to pick with Trevor Harris and his Montreal Alouettes in general, another bad boy Saskatchewan Roughriders player, irrational Riders fans on Twitter and the excruciating inevitably of those Riders crossing over.
Luckily, RWB co-host Joe Pritchard keeps to his wits more solidly and is able to offer some more clearheaded analysis about week 13 in the Canadian Football League, and Os manages to get it together enough for picks and predictions for next week’s games…

RWB CFL podcast #12: “Things are becoming clearer”
“Things are becoming clearer,” says Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard, though co-host Os Davis isn’t so sure after a week 12 slate that surprised him – of course, that could be because he’s truly bloody awful at CFL Pick ‘em, CFL daily fantasy football and betting on CFL football…
In episode 212, the RWB reviews the week 12 games, with an accent on former Montreal Alouettes starting quarterbacks, and takes a look at next week’s games, staying remarkably on the rails the entire time. And Joe even feeds Os’s filthy gambling habit with some more admittedly good ideas for the Labour Day games…

RWB CFL podcast #211: Is it over…?
Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard is back – for good, this time – just in time to address the cliffhanging, door-slamming, corner-turning and straight-up eventful week 11 in Canadian football. RWB co-host Os Davis has got seemingly endless questions and debate points, all beginning with “Is it over…?” such as…
Is it over for Paul LaPolice as Ottawa Redblacks head coach?
Are the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ playoff hopes over, as at least one Regina sportswriter guesses?
Is it over for Bo Levi Mitchell, Cody Fajardo, Caleb Evans, Dane Evans, and CFL quarterbacks named Evans in general?
Are Montreal Alouettes fans over their fears of Trevor Harris? and
Is Joe over his love of Canadian fantasy football?
All this plus picks and predictions for CFL week 12 on the RWB.

RWB CFL podcast #210 Whatta week of CFL football!
The CFL took us back to the high-flying 1990s/2000s of CFL football this week and returned to the mantra “No Lead Is Safe” this week. The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast’s co-host Os Davis and substitute co-host Greg James take on the week that was by way of a lot of questions, such as…
Will the Winnipeg Blue Bombers ever break out the all-blue W uniforms again after getting their near-legendary winning streak snapped by the Montreal Alouettes? (And is the Bombers’ loss the *real* reason Joe sat out this week…?)
Have the Toronto Argonauts entered a graveyard spiral – and are they really as bad as Greg thinks?
Could the Edmonton Elks have won, were it not for exorbitant penalties?
Speaking of penalties, what was up with all the “pyramiding” calls and, tangentially, can we as a fan society admit that makeup calls exist?
Does it really matter what order the Bombers, Calgary Stampeders and BC Lions finish in? The two West playoff games determine everything, right?
All this plus picks and predictions for CFL week 11 on the RWB.
The Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast: Well, we think the Bombers’ all-blues look superdope…
Decent Show but Too Off Topic
This is a decent show and has good content, but they go on long non-cannon topics a lot. They make jokes say exaggerated things that make you want to yell at them to get on topic again.
Warning: Co-Host Oz Davis’ laugh is worst than a dentist drill! His laugh will make you cringe over and over.
Tips: stay on content and on topic! No more jokes!
