Rouge, White and Blue: CFL Week 7, raves and rants
(written by Os Davis)
So let’s see … the league’s worst two teams both won, once in a 38-point demolition of last week’s big winner; the leading candidate for this year’s Most Outstanding Player award led a fourth-quarter comeback and overtime victory against what was the top team; and last year’s East division champs lost by a field goal for the second consecutive week.
So … just another week in the CFL, 2016 edition.
On the week 7 edition of The Rouge, White & Blue CFL podcast, we’re summarizing the wacky week that was and look ahead to next week. Co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard aren’t exactly sure you should take our picks too seriously, as we managed a combined 1-7 last week. (Hey, who had both the Bombers *and* the Alouettes?)
Raves for the Montreal Alouettes (though Os the cynic reckons trouble lies ahead), Matt Nicholas and his Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampeders, among others fill the episode, along with a bit of a rant. Ottawa Boo Birds, I think it’s safe to say you’re on our s*** list. It takes quite a bit to turn Joe the optimist to the dark side, but the “What have you done for me lately” attitude exhibited by a few short-sighted attendees in Ottawa did so this week.
Thanks for listening, and enjoy the games!
