Ready for a bit of a long, strange nostalgia trip? With Os Davis playing hooky – that’s hooky, not hockey – this week, Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard has longtime sports journalist Shawn Heimberger on the show to talk about the American fan’s CFL experience from the 1980s onward. The result is a wonderfully stream-of-consci

2019 CFL free agency: Winners, losers, Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Friday, February 22, 2019 1:01 AM
Down here in the ’States, few things in sports are as abhorred as a game ending in a tie. We love our winners and losers in the US of A, and naturally upon the conclusion of any competitive event or fraction of the calendar year, Americans love to divvy up the players in those clear two sides. So now that the ultimate heights of Canada’s game, the

To no one’s surprise, the first two days of the 2019 CFL free agency were chockful of activity. To some surprise, the BC Lions and Edmonton Eskimos accounted for approximately all signings of key FAs not named Bo Levi Mitchell. Speaking of no one’s surprise, the move of Grey Cup-winning/longtime Eskimo QB Mike Reilly to BC was expected from before

In case you hadn’t heard, CFL Free Agency version 2019 has opened – and all BC Lions and the Edmonton Eskimos have done is essentially rework their entire rosters. Recorded just about 2½ days into this year’s madness – so don’t blame us for major omissions, please, really they weren’t our fault – was this week’s episode of the Rouge White & Blue C

It’s about time we should expect nothing short of craziness during Week 1 of the CFL season but if I told you that nothing surprised me this past weekend, I’d be lying. When will I learn? I didn’t expect the Argos to get crushed while ushering in a new era at BMO Field or for Trevor Harris to throw a 70+ yard touchdown on his first play with Ottaw

The 2016 CFL season: Official Fearless Predictions™
Thursday, June 23, 2016 12:35 AM
Almost a year ago to the day, I nervously sent in my picks ahead of the 2015 season and felt pretty good about what I predicted. I didn’t predict Montreal missing the playoffs for the first time since returning to the city, I didn’t predict Saskatchewan’s implosion or Ottawa’s *ex*plosion along with the now infamous “2nd and 25”. I was actually p

Time for just a bit more math before I make my official predictions for the 2016 CFL season.  This time, let's take a look at Pythagorean Expectation over the past 10 years, and how it can be used to aid in predictions for this season. Now, I've based a lot of my work at CFLpass on the fact that teams that underachieve their Pythagorean Expectati

I’m still stuck on how interesting the CFL standings have been over the years, but for once, I came up with an idea that didn’t involve hours of research and a lot of math. For this week’s deep dive into CFL history, let’s look at the crossover – or more specifically, the lack thereof – at points in history. I’m looking for times when the crossove

Football season is *finally* upon us. It has been a painful six months of arguing about new logos, jerseys, and compensation. With rookie camp already underway and main camp starting this Sunday, now we can focus on what’s happening on the field. It’s about time. •  Looks! Juwan Simpson is back in Calgary... As a guest coach. I still think Simpso
