With the addition of basic Individual Game records for three categories, attention will be spent on expanding this area. The likely order in priority of additions are:

  • Adding Playoff and Grey Cup Individual Game records (data is in place, add display only).
  • Adding values and ranking to Player pages.
  • Adding season high values to League Season sections.
  • Adding Team record lists to Team sections.
  • Adding additional record types (such as play records, i.e. longest play) for Passing, Rushing and Receiving
  • Adding other statistical categories.

The sort term focus will be on getting the data currently available on display, followed by longer term goals of adding more data. In its current early release form, we would appreciate any feedback on the display, value and any lacking component to the initial design.
