Is this a page that any of you find useful? Keeping in mind that the league will likely never post specific contract data (eg. salary and bonus amounts), is there other information that this page could provide that would be useful to the public or media?
It’s a new format, right? I really like how it’s sortable and the format is better. I’m a fan. It would be nice to add back in the table that told you what the terminology means (ex. remove unsigned free agent).
I contact it on a daily basis and I do appreciate it. Maybe not with the new format,since it’s posted regularly, but in the past I would contact CFL staff if there were no transactions posted for many days,particularly when I knew that teams had made moves.
I didn’t think so either…though many leagues do have one there
What would be awesome is if the CFL provided a more user friendly stats tool. I love the pdf…i tinker with it a lot. Unfortunately, it is formatted horribly. I don’t know if that is a poor source or part an issue with the conversion to pdf …but exporting it to excel is ugly and not uniform at all. It makes tinkering with stats a pain
Try using the various drop-down fields up top, and clicking the Add Filter button - you can see more than just one year’s data, filter to specific criteria, and view data per-game instead of per-season. And each time you do a new search, the URL is updated so you can share it. Here’s a list of all passing performances since 2004 in the playoffs where the QB threw for more than 400 yards:
Right now we’re working on the team equivalent of that page. Once that’s done, we’ll focus on importing old data so we have player and team stats going back to 1958. It’s a job that takes time but I won’t be happy with CFL.ca until it gets there.
I generally use the “Team Stats” during the regular season. I will use it weekly to see where teams are at in comparison to other teams, improvement or not during the past week, etc. I occasionally look at individual stats, but that might be two or three times during a season.
We’ll have a brand new Team Stats page for you in a month or two, I think - with lots of ability to sort, filter and look for specific things. We’ll still also link to the PDF if you prefer to get your information that way, though.
