A native of Gatineau, Matthieu Proulx played his university football from 2001 to 2004 at the University of Laval, where he won the Vanier Cup twice. In 2005, the Montreal Alouettes made Matthieu their first-round draft pick. The Alouettes safety won the Grey Cup with the team in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, at the age of 29, he hung his cleats. Since 2011, he has been a CFL and NFL analyst for RDS.
Pierre Vercheval was born in Belgium and grew up in Quebec City. He is the first Quebecker in history to have played in 200 regular season games in the Canadian Football League and the first Quebecker to have participated in a National Football League training camp (1988, with the New England Patriots). In 1987, he was drafted by the Edmonton Eskimos and was selected as a division All-Star seven times and a CFL All-Star six times. His four Grey Cup appearances, his two Grey Cup victories with the Toronto Argonauts, and his time as a premier lineman with the Alouettes led to him becoming the first francophone to be inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. In 2002, Pierre joined RDS as a CFL and NFL analyst. Pierre is also a member of the Quebec Sports Hall of Fame.

Bruno Heppell was drafted in the third round (21st overall) by the Montreal Alouettes during the 1997 CFL draft. Heppell played for the Alouettes for eight seasons (1997 to 2004). He played an active role in the team’s success, opening gaps for Mike Pringle and protecting star quarterback Anthony Calvillo. Named to the Eastern All-Star Team by his peers in 2001 and 2002, he was an important cog in the Alouettes’ Grey Cup victory in 2002. Officially retired from the CFL in 2005, he has been working in the media as a football analyst for nearly 10 years.
