Here is a thread from the B.C. Lions fan-site "Lionbackers" which explains how to access detailed CFL stats (thank you to the posters for their contribution!):
The CFL this year has bolstered the stats in its weekly stats package. You have to download the weekly PDF from the stats page at cfl.ca to get them.
More information is contained in the Game Notes published by the league and posted the day before each game at bclions.com (under the Game Day tab).
For in-game stats and play-by-play I use CFL Live Play (liveplay.cflcentral.com).
The stats page at CFLdb (stats.cfldb.ca) is also useful, especially for historical stats.
My favourite source is still the weekly Game Analysis reports published by the league at cflmedia.ca. You need a password to get into the stats pages. Most but not all of these stats are summarized in the weekly Game Notes.
I don't know if this is the same set of stats packages you're referring to, but at the bottom of every page on cfl.ca there's a collection of links grouped into four categories: "Our League", "Our Teams", "Affiliate Sites", "Media".
The last link in the "Media" group is for the "CFL media portal" which if you go there has tons of statistics and game reports, all in PDF form, no password req'd, just click on the "CFL documents" link and navigate from there.
Also regarding liveplay.cflcentral.com, there are no posted links for the full database on that site that I've found, but if you're clever enough with how to manually edit the URLs for each individual game, it goes all the way back to 2008 although some games here and there appear to be missing and/or have incomplete stats/reports.
For example, here's the fully intact stat report from our first game in 2008, a 28-18 loss to Cgy:
[url=http://liveplay.cflcentral.com/LPFiles/10_2008_cfllive_scoreboard.html]http://liveplay.cflcentral.com/LPFiles/ ... board.html[/url]
And here's the fully intact play-by-play description of the same game:
[url=http://liveplay.cflcentral.com/LPFiles/10_2008_cfllive_playbyplay.html]http://liveplay.cflcentral.com/LPFiles/ ... yplay.html[/url]
Each of these two pages contains a link back to the other.
These URLs are all the same for every game back through 2008 in the database except for the 10_2008 part; the part before the underscore is the game number where it falls chronologically on the schedule for the year indicated after the underscore. The game numbers range 1 through 9 for the preseason part of the schedule (or 1 through 8 in the 8-team format), then 10 through 90 for the regular season (9 through 80, 8 teams) and finally 91 through 95 (81 through 85, 8 teams) for the five postseason games, with the Grey Cup being game #95 (or 85 for 8 teams). Only tricky part is these pages never give the date of the game so if you want to figure that out, you have to cross-reference with the league schedule from some other source, which could be laborious.
