Roadmap

All statistical pages for CFL league history now provide a historical/modern toggle, allowing viewing of official historical history (default) and modern history if desired. All future additions will include this feature from the start. Work will continue on adding and exposing additional data at the season level while continuing to explore ways the site can be more navigable.

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.
