Obviously the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have much bigger problems to solve on the Football Ops side of the office. But has anyone noticed that some cracks are appearing at 500 Sherman Ave. N as well ??
Last week there was some dialogue on this Forum about how pathetic the CFL’s own website has become . . . fans cannot even trust the statistics that are published on the League’s own website.
But I am finding that the Ticats’ website has its own gremlins. I have checked this out with 2 different Browsers, to determine if that might be contributing, & it was not. Is anyone else observing this?
In the ribbon across the top of the HOME page, where each game on the 2023 schedule is shown, the scores for the completed games are not shown. That is the first thing. I am certain that scores were displayed in that ribbon in previous seasons. Instead of that, I have a link titled “Boxscore”, which leads to another page with 3 separate Tabs, “Scoring Summary”, “Play by Play” & “Head to Head”. For me, each one of these pages remain totally unpopulated - void of any content. Are others experiencing the same thing ?? We are 2 games into the Regular Season . . . what is happening at 500 Sherman ??
Below that “2023 Schedule” ribbon, there is another Task bar with links to different features on the website . . . “Listen”, “MyTixLogin”, etc. When I attempt to go to the “Schedule” page, once again I encounter the entire 2023 schedule, and yet again, none of the scores are posted. I suspect this page is linked to the ribbon that I mentioned in the previous bullet point (ie. same problem).
But this same page allows users to revisit scores & stats from previous seasons as well. And in this case, I am encountering a totally different glitch. If I access scores from a previous season (any season), the scores for that entire season will display for about 20s or less, before the screen bounces back to display the 2023 season with none of the scores entered. Trés strange.
Just wondering if others are encountering similar issues.
I am also wondering if the CFL’s league website, and each of the 9 team websites are managed by a common service provider . . . that might explain the consistent problems.
There are many things that say not much attention is paid to the club’s website. The roster is rarely up-to-date. The league standings appear at the bottom of the main page – the '22 standings! I could go on, and on …
Yeah, that was almost an “OK Boomer” comment.
Let’s just say that both Crash and I are somewhat familiar with team discussion boards (both original members of the team site/forums before they were all merged) and more than somewhat familiar with the advances of technology.
With the two agreements with both Genius Sports and some other company I can’t remember, we were promised accurate stats, reporting, odds (for those who partake), marketing, etc. So far, it’s been a complete failure.
