Today globesports.com published a story stating David Braley, owner of the B.C. Lions, contributed half of the $2 million purchase price for the Toronto Argonauts to new owners Howard Sokolowski and David Cynamon and continued to lend them money. Although all parties denied the existence of an ownership stake by Braley in the Argonauts, the CFL later acknowledged the loans in media statements, although they were not known to the league. To me, the story came off as shock journalism for sports. Sell some papers, create a stir, but don’t really address the issue and provide facts where they exist and questions where they don’t.

Now that the new site is up, there are some things I should raise as possible glitches.
If you find issues with these or any other areas on the site, please let me know.

A spring refresh is now complete on CFLdb, bringing a new backend and a lot of spring cleaning. Under the covers CFLdb is now powered by the Django framework. Migrating from the previous “temporary” WordPress setup has taken much of my time the past few months. I’ve worked on making sure as much as possible still works on the new code base and have added some tweaks and features as well. Delivery is a little late, with CFL training camps now in full swing and plenty of league and team news as the regular season approaches. I’ll highlight the new features of the site that I hope will be the start of new direction for CFLdb providing unique CFL information.
