The CFLdb family of sites are for the community, and I rely on the community being responsible for the information on the sites. Errors, which do occur due to the substantial amount of information on the site that is dynamic in nature (annual rule book changes, CBA changes, ad-hoc opaque league changes to regulations), should be reported so they may be corrected. As much as possible, links to original sources are provided. If information seems outdated or suspicious, original sources should be consulted for the source of truth. Then, with knowledge of the truth, those sources should be referenced rather than information written on these sites, and the errors on these sites noted at a bare minimum to quell debate if there is no desire to inform CFLdb site administrators of the issue.
Unfortunately, currently only proven contributors and trusted individuals are invited to assist with CFLdb. Many do not have interest in writing, and limit themselves to contributing information. This leaves updating content to a single person, and the workload fluctuates when new sources are released. Long term plans (3-5 years) for the site include a greater community involvement, but for now these limitations exist. I encourage a better community driven CFL information source; when one appears I will shut down CFLdb.
Send all contributions, corrections and suggestions to me via methods found on the Contact page. All contributions are credited, with more prominent credit for the largest statistics contributors on the CFLdb Statistics home page. The home page will, therefore, reflect the true owners of the site, those that research, compile and contribute data and corrections.
