Work continues on Individual Game records. The likely order in priority of additions are:

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

In its current early release form, we would appreciate any feedback on the display, value and any lacking component to the initial presentation.
