The CFLdb Statistics design refresh is almost complete. Following this will be some backend upgrades, and then a continuing to improvements and additions to the data available built on the foundation and patterns being established.

ORFU Rosters

Mark Estep’s contribution of ORFU rosters continues. Mark is extremely generous in providing the data that undoubtedly took many days, weeks and months to source, compile and validate. His contributions for the remaining ORFU seasons have been received and will be processed in October. Following that, work to make the ORFU roster data on equal feature footing with the CFL roster data will begin.
