CFL Beat: Week 10

We're almost halfway through the CFL regular season, and based on what I've seen thus far in 2019, I can't think of a bigger letdown than the BC Lions. It's a shame, really. We've been accustomed to all five teams in the West Division being extremely competitive, and considering the

CFL Beat: Week 9

Finally home from an incredible week of vacation out East once again, and upon sitting down to write this week's CFL Beat... I just realized that I forgot to enter my picks into the pool last week. Fuck. Such is the price to pay for absolutely gorgeous weather for ten

CFL Beat: Week 8

My vacation continues out east! I am currently in Cape Breton with Lady Maestro and my in-laws, and let me tell you, folks - if you haven't been here yet, you need to go. Mountains, salt air, sea breezes, seafood, and beer. Hard to believe that with all my time

CFL Beat: Week 7

I'm off on vacation tomorrow, so next week's CFL Beat may prove to be a little bit shorter than some previous editions - not certain how much time I'll have to recap everything, but I'll do what I can! Pretty light on league news this week, but a few minor things

CFL Beat: Week 6

Lots of news around the league this week! Including the best kind of news... the juicy gossip! Crime, money, drama and intrigue! All the best kind of stuff to keep you entertained during these, the dog days of summer. Despite a much stronger start to their season than they've enjoyed

CFL Beat: Week 5

It's week 2 of summer vacation, and I'm already stressed that I'm not doing enough with my time off. Goddamnit. You working stiffs, of course, have zero pity for my plight, which is to be entirely expected. At least I'm not slacking on my beer-drinking responsbilities! In league news this week:

CFL Beat: Week 4

God, do I ever love this whole not working during the summertime deal. You really gotta try it. All you need to enjoy it is a career change into education, and a willingness to be patient with what is, at times, a soul-crushing and draconian system for both students and

CFL Beat: Week 3

School's out! We (Beerguyrob and myself, mostly) made it! Huzzah! Time to head up to the cottage and do nothing but drink 12 hours a day for this whole long weekend. Happy early birthday, Canada. A pretty quiet week this week in league news: After getting suspended two games for his

CFL Beat: Week 2

Hi again everyone. School's almost wrapped up in Ontario, and I luckily found time to sneak this into my busy schedule as I currently work through over 400 pages of student essays and exams that I have to mark this week. I hate my life. The good news is that

CFL Beat: Week 1

We've finally arrived at Week 1 of the regular season! Buckle up with a few Molsons and a bag of all-dressed chips and make yourself comfy for the summer of 2019, folks. In league news this week: The Montreal Alouettes remain a major point of concern for the CFL. The team

CFL Beat: West Division Preview

We're now just a week away from the kickoff to the 2019 CFL season! Last week, I previewed the four teams from the CFL's East Division - Hamilton, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto; this week I'll be bringing you a quick overview of each of the five West Division teams. Reminder

CFL Beat: East Division Preview

Another year, another set of team previews! As per usual, this week features the four East Division teams, while next week features the five teams of the West Division. If you'd like to study up before making your picks in this year's [DFO] CFL Pick 'Em Pool, I highly recommending
