Research Assignment: Rosters

Published on July 3, 2019 9:19 PM by dbo.

Contributions from Mark Estep have raised the following discrepancies. Anyone who can research and determine agreement on final roster state or jersey number will be appreciated. What seem like small corrections will help the CFLdb Statistics record be the most accurate it can be.

Jersey numbers are never absolute. One source (be a game program, season listing, or team photo) only indicates the jersey worn on one day (and perhaps not during a game), and multiple jerseys could be worn in a season. While this isn’t the norm, we have to be aware that players change jerseys during the season and between seasons, and don’t wear the same jersey for their whole career. So jersey numbers are presented as best effort based on some fact, but errors or omissions may occur. If you have corrections to any jersey numbers listed for players or jersey number additions for players listed without numbers, please send them along.

All discrepancies and information below is identified and reported by Mark Estep.
