Podskee Wee Wee, Episode 71

On this week’s show, Mike and I kick things off by talking about Jeffrey Orridge’s surprising removal as CFL commissioner. Then we move into Ticats news and discuss Terrell Sinkfield signing with the Minnesota Vikings (as a DB, no less), the Ticats’ decision to reveal who is on their neg list, Mathieu Girard’s retirement, the signing of four DBs and the revelation that Hamilton’s preseason tilt at Ottawa will be televised on TSN.

In league news, we delve deep into Ed Hervey’s shocking firing in Edmonton, the resurrgence of interest in the CFL’s US expansion era, the Argos re-signing of Brandon Whitaker (which we jokingly take credit for), the Argos cutting Ricky Foley and the Boatmen’s decision to replace their radio broadcast crew with a TV simulcast.

We take an episode off from doing our video game ratings for CFL players (we will be back with them next episode) and instead end the show with Mike handing out a rare offseason Bozo of the Week and by answering a pair of listener questions.

  1. Mike – I am not totally disagreeing with you about Odel Willis whom I don’t like to begin with but I am not sure that you touched on the heart of the story. I have often felt teams were classless by releasing players the day before they were due a roster bonus. Nate Coohorn was the reverse of that – he took a pay cut but was given a roster bonus – he took that money and then retired the next day. This may have been classless on Coohorn’s part but I don’t agree with calling him soft etc. Also, you guys maybe should find some different game highlights from last year for the opening credits since they all seem to involve Chad Owens who is no longer with the team. Anyways – love the show and your comments regardless although sometimes it seems like by the time you two are able to coordinate schedules to get together to record the podcast, some of the stuff seems like old news.

  2. Hard to believe that Orridge was chosen in the first place.
    Was never the right fit, from day one.
    Out of touch…totally.
    Never knew anything about the CFL.
    You have to wonder how he ever got chosen.
    Let’s hope the right person gets into the position…this time.
    The only good thing is that they are getting rid of the misfit…much sooner than later.

    Enjoyed this extended episode. I am a supporter of Jeffrey Orridge and am sorry to see him go. The CFL has developed a reputation of making the Commissioners role a short term career… as a result great candidates will be reluctant to pursue the role.

    Question… as we sit on the cusp of minicamp and the draft, do you think that the changes to the teams to date has tipped the balance a little between east and west teams? Overall I sense the East is stronger than last season…. but still not strong enough for eastern teams to win more games ( on average) over western teams.
