The team at DFO is committed to brightening the world with insights, observations, and dick jokes. This mailbag feature is just one more way in which we extend our mission beyond football to the rest of life’s broad and multi-chromatic palette. Fantasy football questions still welcome but by no means required. If you
HAIL GAMBLOR! European footy is mostly all back this weekend.
Arsenal ride into West Ham to start festivities (7:30, NBCSN). The Gooners are feeling the hot breath of Man U(re) for 5th position, while the Hammers have worked their way up to the top half (10th). Could be fairly interesting.
With the NFL Playoffs drawing nigh, I wanted to take a real quick look at the Bears-Eagles playoff matchup to see how it shapes up. With the Bears coming off a 5-11 record the previous season, being a home favorite for this game is a great reward for a huge
I know that this column revolves around Canada and a whole variety of Canadian things, which for a number of you, might seem like excessive jingoism, and I understand that sentiment. Oddly enough, after experiencing my first-ever Grey Cup live in the flesh, I can now safely say that apparently
DIVISION FINAL RECAPS
East Division Final
Saskatchewan 21 vs. Toronto 25: Despite surrendering a first half 18-3 lead, Toronto is off to their first Grey Cup game since 2012, where they won Canada's top football prize playing at home at the Rogers Centre. It was a full-team effort on this one, though when
What's going on, everybody? Hope you all are fully recovered from your NYE hangover because we got some real meaningful football this weekend. That's right, it's the WILD CARD ROUND!!!
Unfortunately for all of us, the AFC quarterback situation is... horrific. We talk about it at length on this week's podcast,
Well, it finally happened. Forty years in the making, back in the same old stomping grounds as the last one. Both games with incredibly dramatic conclusions which will stick in the minds of fans watching for many years to come. It was a long, long time coming, and a ridiculously
This week is a very special edition of the CFL Beat, as I give a Boots On The Ground report of being in attendance live at the East Final, where were it not for the copious amount of clothing I was wearing, could very well have frozen my own balls
The playoffs press on - both games last weekend were absolute barn-burners, and even if you're only just starting to pay attention now to the CFL season (which, if that's the case, what the hell? Have I just been shouting into the abyss about this for six months now??), this
The playoffs are upon us! With three weekends left in the CFL calendar year, just five games remain to sort out the Grey Cup. With Ottawa and Calgary waiting in the wings to host their respective division finals next weekend, there's two semifinals taking place on Sunday with plenty of
Even though we are, as Commentist Don T said, looking for proof that “the offseason is not an eternal state”, we are being treated to some excellent end-of-season drives in other sports. It's not football, but it should keep the interest of most casual, or Boston, sports fans in the
A cynic (myself) might say that this game doesn't look very good but we're in "PLAYOFF MODE" now. LOSER GOES HOME...JUST LIKE THE WINNER! Okay, I'm sure you know what I mean because we all type English here. We've endured some weird crap over the course of the season and
