The following changes have been made to CFLdb Statistics since the last report:

  • Data: Added/corrected jersey numbers and biographical information for 6 players. (Thanks Mark!).

  • Data: Updated game and individual biographical information (over 880 updates, additions and deletions this month).
  • Enhancement: Added tiebreaker results to main season standings pages (2000-forward).
  • Enhancement: Refactor schedule page; show separate schedule tabs for CFC (1956-1957) and CFL (1958-1960) until partially interlocking schedule in 1961 started schedule integration.
  • Enhancement: Added all honours in database to player detail pages.
  • Enhancement: Added Team Honours page, listing team members and honours received.
  • Enhancement: Completed refactoring standings pages to use tabs for displaying division and other standings listings.
  • Enhancement: Show player links for players participating in 1980 through 1987 seasons.
  • Bug: Fixed tiebreaker text when single division.
  • Bug: Show Top Performer rank on Week pages.
  • Bug: Don’t show coach record when no games for season on coach detail pages.
  • Bug: Fixed participation ranking for seasons and games to include CFL seasons and games only.
  • Bug: Fix team upcoming schedule on the team current season page.
  • Bug: Fixed page title and meta description on league season week pages.

Along with numerous other cosmetic, data, performance, administrative, or infrastructure related bug fixes and enhancements (34 commits this month).

Special acknowledgement to contributors Mark and Cathy this month.


The next priority is the continued refactoring of pages.

Known Issue

I have discovered an issue with the tiebreaker priority text. It appears to only affect the display, incorrectly showing the increment of the tie breaker priority after a team is eliminated from a tied group. I do not believe it is impacting the result of the tiebreaker. I plan on investigating the issue in July, and hope to have it corrected by the next update.

Missed You?

If I missed your contribution this or any other month, please send a gentle reminder so I may correct the record. And apologies for the unintended slight.
