Eskimo Empire episode 50: Questions and a fan from Lethbridge

Thursday, June 30, 2016 1:35 AM

For the first time in quite a while, the Eskimo Empire boys get together to talk about a loss by the Eskimos.

In episode 50 of the Eskimo Empire podcast, Andrew and Uncle Tim are joined by Joel, an Esks fan from Lethbridge, that came up to see the Esks home opener and stayed to be a featured fan. His connection to football started at 10, and he has played and watched since then.

A great fan question this week: Will Ed and Jason stay patient with this new secondary or is there a trade in the works? All three guys weigh in and, of course, the possible (probable?) trade of Andrew's fave James Franklin comes up.

A full breakdown of the good and bad from the Esks home opener against Ottawa shows that, as it was a year ago, Trevor Harris lights up the Esks D in game one. There were bright spots on each side of the ball. A new feature this week has each guy chose his offensive, defensive and special teams players of the game.

Finally, a breakdown of the other CFL games and this week's PickEms. After going 0-4 in week one, will Andrew succumb to picking "stupid Montreal"? Someone does. You can join our CFL PickEm pool right here.

Lots of great fans and guests to come and alumni joining in soon. Our Periscopefrom last week is right here
