CFL Pass

Rouge, White & Blue episode 12 features BC Lions Den master

It’ll be nice when the CFL free agency market officially opens on Tuesday; after that, the Rouge, White & Blue podcast will finally feature a little chat about some, you know, actual CFL news. With little going on in Canada and the NFL on its insipid pre-Super Bowl bye week, Joe Pritchard and yours truly nevertheless manage to fill 45 minutes or so in episode 12 – thanks mainly to our guest Brian Wawryshyn of BC Lions Den.

After a bit about Dan LeFevour venturing into this new, would-be upstart professional association known as “Major League Football” (and woof, are those some terrible team names), Brian joins us to talk lotsa Lions, including their needs in free agency, Wally Buono’s return as head coach, and the challenges of drawing proper crowds to home games in Vancouver.

As one of the first voices in the CFL podcasting game, Brian also offers some insight into producing his BC Lions Pawdcast and tells us a bit about what went down at 3 Down Nation last week.
