Have CFL fans just been through the least enjoyable week in CFL history? Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard contends so in this episode.
Joe’s specifically talking about the hit on QB Jeremiah Masoli by DL Garrett Marino of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the (let’s face it) pretty freakin’ weak four-game suspension given Marino, the league’s ham-handed handling of the subsequent criticism and yet another blow to what seemingly long ago was a promising-looking 2022 Ottawa Redblacks season.
But there’s even more to be bummed out about regarding week 5 of this CFL season. Up-and-coming Canadian quarterback Tre Ford was also knocked out of his game along with any traces of optimism in Edmonton Elks land, the Montreal Alouettes predictably cleaned house among the coaching staff, the gap between East and West grew to historical disproportions, and even an easy Calgary-Edmonton pick turned into a Gambling (Mis)Adventure for RWB co-host Os Davis.
Ah, well. We have fun nevertheless.
