Rulebook Updated to 2016 Version

Published on July 10, 2016 5:52 PM by dbo.

I am happy to announce that the Official Playing Rules for the Canadian Football League 2016 is now available in searchable permalink web format on CFLdb, With the number of significant rule changes made this year, this is a welcome addition early in the season.

Incorporation of the 2016 Rule Changes were made, including a complete rewrite of the Instant Replay section and advancement of it to Rule 10. Review revealed a number of additional changes missed from unavailable rulebook years, which were corrected in the 2015 and 2016 online versions. In addition, a number of minor corrections were made to the 2016 CFL Rulebook text to correct link references and spelling errors. It is possible that there are changes still missing from the current version. If you find such an issue by comparing the PDF version with the online version, please report the mistake so it may be corrected.

One page in need of review is the Rule 10 – Approved Rulings which I did not review for changes. Anyone who wants to compare versus the official PDF and report to me any changes, additions or deletions to the page will be most appreciated and credited.

For those not interested in the online linkable version, please see the official PDF version of the 2016 CFL Rulebook at
