2 and Out CFL Podcast ep. 15: Green Zone’s Joel Gasson talks aftermath in Saskatchewan

Episode 15 of the 2 and Out CFL podcast, hosted by CFLpass lead writer Travis Currah and Saskatoon-based sports journo John Fraser is now available online.

If only something had happened in Canadian football over the past week, muse the lads of the 2 And Out at the top of the podcast. Of course, Currah and Fraser are all just “just joking!”, instead welcoming onto the show Joel Gasson of CJME’s The Green Zone.

Naturally, Gasson and the guys thoroughly examine the implications of the Corey Chamblin/Brendan Taman dismissals from Saskatchewan beginning with the question of “What happened to Corey Chamblin after the Grey Cup win?” You know, like, what was up with the favouritism given subsequently-released Tino Sunseri and other veterans? And what about the lack of viable Canadian players on the Riders the past season or two?

Also, listen in for Gasson’s musings on who might be coaching the Roughriders in 2016 plus Fraser’s argument as to why Chamblin, despite appearances to the contrary, was actually not pulling a Constanza during the RedBlacks game to get himself fired. (And decide for yourselves whether you buy it.)

Beyond the Riders chat, listeners of episode 15 also get discussion on:

• The possibility of would-be NFLers Brett Boyko and Brett Jones playing in the CFL before too long plus a scary vision of both of ‘em landing on the same Hamilton Tiger-Cats OL (And a name-drop for Os Davis on the ‘cast as well – thank you, gentlemen!);

• several great reasons to watch the Thursday night Labour Day weekend non-rivalry match pitting the Montreal Alouettes at BC Lions – nah, not really – but lots of good stuff on the more traditional games in addition to the perfectly rational suggestion that perhaps the annual Labour Day game should be Montreal vs. Ottawa;

• new names for sack-and-interception combos, sack-interception-fumble combos, sack-pick six-fumble return for TD combos … you get the idea; and

• the revelation of the statistically best and worst offensive lines in the league – no. 1 is probably not who you’d figure.
