For those who may have missed it, season 2 episode 2 of The Rouge, White & Blue CFL podcast included the very special payoff on a bet made on the opening week Winnipeg Blue Bombers-Montreal Alouettes game. Due to the egregious loss suffered by his beloved Bombers, Joe Pritchard was thereby duty-bound to pay up. The price? The rewriting and recitat

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

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

We are six days away from having *new* CFL games to watch on TSN instead of repeats every single night. I’m actually watching the 2015 East Final right now as I roundup this week’s news in the CFL. Can I just fast forward to this part? What a moment. • CFL teams were to trim rosters to 65 players on Tuesday and most of the cuts weren’t surpris

As much as preseason football isn’t designed to entertain the fans, I must admit that my heart grew three sizes just seeing CFL Football on my TV Guide again. While winning is a nice result, that’s not necessarily the goal during the preseason. Veterans just want to shake off the rust while staying healthy and coaches want to evaluate the talent th

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

I have already established that it’s not easy to go from one extreme to the other in the CFL standings, first examining teams going from worst to first and then first to worst, but that just made me wonder how likely each finish was based off of where teams had placed the year before. Before I go too far into this, note this isn’t an exact science
And now, the history of going first to worst in the CFL

Last time, we took a look at CFL teams going from worst to first in their division (and there has been an addition to the article: The 1985-1986 Argos were not included in the initial draft. There is also an explanation of my methods in that piece as well), so this time, let’s take a look at teams going from first to worst in their division. The 1
