This week’s edition of the Rouge, White & Blue CFL Podcast was recorded just a day after the news of the death of 23-year-old Calgary Stampeders DB Mylan Hicks. Apologies in advance for the more serious tone we take this week, though co-hosts Joe Pritchard and Os Davis’s comments on the actual incident are kept to a minimum. For Os’s slightly more coherent (hopefully) thoughts on the matter, you can read this article

Life and the game inevitably march on, though; Os and Joe talk about last week’s games and make predictions regarding this weekend’s slate. As the CFL playoff picture comes ever more sharply into focus, questions nevertheless remain. So the Rouge, White & Blue contemplates stuff like, “Are the Winnipeg Blue Bombers really better than the BC Lions, as the Grueling Truth power rankings claim?” Also examined: “Who’s in the driver’s seat for that sixth playoff spot, the Edmonton Eskimos or Toronto Argonauts?” “What has happened to the Ottawa RedBlacks?” And the ever-popular “What the hell is wrong with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats?”
