Contributors

The Gridiron Uniform Database launched their CFL section this month with the 1945–1960 seasons and graciously contributed to CFLdb the game time data for all games in this period. They have indicated that as they add additional games, future contributions will be made. Check out their site as they continue to add CFL game uniform information periodically.

Roadmap

Experimentation has started to attempt to solve two of the biggest issues visitors find with the site: CFL history segregated by league, and site navigation or information find-ability. We hope the next update sees progress in this area.

Found an Issue?

Please report any issues you come across in the data on the site or in its display. If you have concerns over the absence of data or how it is displayed, please let CFLdb know. Thank you for taking the time to make the site better by adding information and sources, eliminating errors and correcting misleading information.

Missed You?

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

Contributions, Corrections and Suggestions

Send all contributions, corrections and suggestions to me via methods found on the Contact page. All contributions are credited, with more prominent credit for the largest statistics contributors on the CFLdb Statistics contributor page. The contributor list does, then, reflect the true owners of the site, those that research, compile and contribute data and corrections.
