After years of development, we're thrilled to announce that Stathead FBref is here! If you're a Stathead subscriber who loves football (or an American Stathead subscriber who loves soccer), you know just how much of a game changer this is. If you've never heard of Stathead, read on to discover how this is going to change everything for stat-savvy football fans.
Hockey-Reference has recently joined many of our other Sports-Reference sites in featuring nicknames for players on the site. Nicknames for over 2,300 players have been added to the site. These range from legends like Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr and Toe Blake to stars like Rod Brind'Amour and brawlers like Dave Schultz. We would like to thank our 2023 summer intern Brendan Avey for his thorough research in finding these nicknames and readying them for insertion into our dB. We would also like to thank Doug Reynolds of The Hockey Databank for allowing us to use the hundreds of nicknames already in his database. We hope you enjoy this new feature and please let us know if there are any others we're missing that you think are worthy of inclusion.
Basketball Reference has added assistant coaches to our WNBA team pages and also created pages for these assistant coaches and added assistant coaching stints to pages for head coaches. We would like to thank one of our 2023 summer interns, Alison Gilmore, for her exhaustive research in tracking these down. This information was difficult to find in many cases, but she was able to add over 1,000 datapoints. If you notice that we're missing any of these coaching stints, please let us know.
