Rulebook Updated to 2017 Version

Published on July 23, 2017 8:42 PM by dbo.

I am happy to announce that the Official Playing Rules for the Canadian Football League 2017 is now available in searchable permalink web format on CFLdb. The major area of change this year is the rewrite of the Statistical Scoring Rules section, so if that is your area of interest, give it a read to increase your familiarity.

Keen observers recognized that the updated rulebook was soft-launched yesterday, and have been reviewing the changes since.

Keeping all material, sources and links current and accurate on CFLdb takes a lot of effort, and the rulebook is no exception. A time-consuming process, it is easy for changes to slip though unnoticed, especially with missed rulebooks and undocumented changes. I welcome independent audits and comparisons to identify errors or missed changes. Anyone who compares CFLdb’s online version versus the official PDF version for differences and reports them to me will be greatly appreciated. All reports will be reviewed and corrected immediately and contributions credited as desired.

For those not interested in the online linkable version, please see the official PDF version of the 2017 CFL Rulebook at
