||Strengths: Full Schedules, easy to admin and use
Weaknesses: Duplicate Code, Schedule Changes, and New Season
Details: This will be my third years using this application. Yes Aplication it's more than a script. The ability to make schedule changes when the NFL moves the Game time would be a welcomed feature. Unfortunately I have yet to find a source online each year to get the schedule for import so it takes about a day to scrape the schedule and get it in the database.
I'v made several modifications:
**Move several common items into separate include files. **Working on moving this to ASP.NET. **Users required Email address. **Added point spreads, can me left at 0 if you don't want to use them. **Added the ability to have some people play for money an others not to. The admin marks the players as paid. **Made several additional options to the Summary pages, also made the table sortable.

||Strengths: Ease of use, complete component
Weaknesses: CSS Formatting!! User Registration
Details: This is a great program! It's really easy to use, and has everything you'll need to run a pool. My biggest problem is the CSS formatting that is used. It doesn't display correctly w/Netscape, and it makes the program hard to integrate with your site's theme. They should probably just do away with the CSS altogether. The other deficiency that I noticed is that you must use the "pot" feature. Perhaps it could be set up to where if you make the entry fee "0", then it will automatically turn off the money feature? Overall a great program with room to improve!
