Ideally, you need a content management system (CMS) that is MySql & PHP driven.
There are loads of open source frameworks you could use for this. My first recommendation would be to look at WordPress Themes & Plugins for Sport Teams.
Thanks, I've already created the site using dreamweaver so I would prefer to continue working there since I know that. I never messed with wordpress. The site is complete. I have the "player profiles" already. I guess what I basicaly want to do is to change them from being static content to dynamic content and allow each player to "update" their own profile online which would update either a MySQL db or a XML file depending on which way I went. I've used dnamicaly loaded text from an XML file in flash, but thought that using MySQL might be more flexable going forward ??

Changing mid-stream from static HTML to dynamic PHP is no small matter. Among other things, you need:
- good PHP coding skills,
- familiarity with setting-up a MySql database,
- and a local testing server such as WAMP, XAMPP or MAMP to test your work locally.

Thanks. I installed WAMP last night , set dreamweaver and did a couple of the std tuts. I will eventualy go that route but it's going to take longer to get it like I want it than I have time right now. I need to get this online for now so I decided to collect/update data via online pdf, then manually update a XML file with the XML I get from the PDF's. create a template for the displayed player profiles and populate via the master XML dynamicaly in a pop-up, Ie click on a players image and see their profile. Once I get it up I can back track and figure out the PHP/MySQL offline. And the data I collect from the PDFs will still be useable.
