Features: Share P-F-R Stats

Pro-Football-Reference.com makes it easy to share the data on the site. Via the SHARE link above every table you can now slice and dice any data table on the site and re-use it elsewhere (we just ask you keep the citation to where you got the data). Here's what you do:

  • Find the data you want to share.
  • Click on the SHARE link just above the stats next to the header (javascript required).
  • A sharing toolbox appears and buttons to delete columns and rows appear allowing you to pare the data down to just want you want.
  • Please note that any sorting should occur before you delete rows or columns.
  • Next select the output option from html, to iframes, to pre-formatted (good for most internet forums) and more. (We've created a Demo Page for all of the options.)

You are free to use this data anywhere, we would just ask that you include the citation at the bottom of the table as a courtesy to us for providing this service.

Why We Oppose #SOPA

Posted by admin on January 18, 2012

Baseball-Reference.com is blacking out our logo today to make you aware of a law that will soon be before Congress that could dramatically affect innovation and freedom on the internet. SOPA and PIPA will soon be before Congress and these laws will dramatically alter the current balance of power between copyright holders and the rights of users and website creators.

Sports Reference believes that intellectual property should be protected (our livelihoods depend on it), but these proposed laws go way, way, way too far in trying to stop piracy. A sane, reasoned approach to piracy is what is needed, and these laws proposed by the Movie and Recording Industry would reduce innovation on the internet. They want to return to the 1980's. Do you want sports statistics information to return to the 1980's?

How could SOPA and PIPA hurt Sports Reference LLC?

SOPA and PIPA are a threat to Sports Reference in many ways. For example, in its current form, SOPA would require Sports Reference to actively monitor every site we link to, to ensure it doesn't host infringing content. Even a link to an infringing site could put us in jeopardy of being forced offline.

Links to more information and steps you can take to oppose these laws from Google and Wikipedia.

Super Bowl Squares App Available!

Posted by Neil on January 16, 2012

With the big game quickly approaching, our Super Bowl Squares mobile app is now available at the iTunes store and the Android Marketplace.

If you're at a Super Bowl party in three weeks and there's a game of squares set up, this app will tell you which squares have the best chance of winning based on game data from 1994-2010. Also, if you're new to the game, there's a page devoted to basic rules that will help you navigate your first SB squares experience. The app costs $0.99, but will pay for itself many times over if you win the pool.

For more information about its features, as well as links to posts about Super Bowl squares theory, click here.
