Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Intended uses[change source]

This infobox template is intended to be used for current and former Canadian Football League (CFL) players, coaches and administrators.

This infobox template is not intended to be used for current and former National Football League (NFL) players, coaches and administrators, nor for players, coaches and administrators in the several NFL predecessor leagues, including the American Professional Football Association (APFA, 1920–1921), All-America Football Conference (AAFC, 1946–1949), American Football League (AFL, 1960–1969). This template is also not used for Arena Football League players, coaches and administrators. All of the foregoing use Template:Infobox NFL biography. This template may be more appropriate for a player, coach, or administrator who played in the NFL but is most notable for their CFL career.

This template is also not used for American college football players, which use Template:Infobox college football player, nor for American college football coaches, which use Template:Infobox college coach, the uniform template for college coaches in all American college sports.

Microformat[change source]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[change source]

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate

  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
