I'm away for a couple of weeks holiday but if people post ideas on what the database structure should be. I.E what you would like to see on the site.

Is it going to be a TV scraper? Such as sports highlight shows?

Or any other comments, I will look at them when I am back.

HTPC - XBMC Gotham, OpenELEC, Harmony Smart Remote, Intel Haswell NUC, 40gb intel SSD, Core i3, 4gb RAM
Storage - 2 x qnap 8tb 419p+ NAS
Display LG 46" LCD + Casio Bulbless projector [PICS]

I think that it would be great to create the site orientated to be a TV scraper, in order to avoid creating the nfo's manually. Even I don't know if it will be possible to create a different section in XBMC exclusive for sports like videoclips.

The data structure could be like this: "Sport"+"League"+"Season"+"Week"+"Game". Here you can see an example with different kind of sports:

- Basketball
--- NBA (regular season)
----- 2013/14
--------- 2014.04.16 19:00h GMT Indiana vs Orlando
--------- 2014.04.16 19:30h GMT Chicago vs Charlotte
--- NBA (play-offs)
----- 2013/14
--------- 2014.04.19 19:00h GMT Brooklyn vs Toronto
--------- 2014.04.19 19:30h GMT Golden St. vs LA Lakers
--------- 2014.04.20 19:00h GMT Dallas vs San Antonio
- Football
--- Liga BBVA
----- 2013/14
------- Week 20
--------- 2014.01.17 17:00h GMT+1 Levante vs Barcelona
- Motor
--- Formula 1
----- 2014
------- Rolex Australian Grand Prix
--------- 2014.03.14 12:30h GMT Practice 1
--------- 2014.03.14 16:30h GMT Practice 2
--------- 2014.03.15 14:00h GMT Practice 3
--------- 2014.03.15 17:00h GMT Qualifying
--------- 2014.03.16 17:00h GMT Race
- Tennis
--- Australian Open Grand Slam
----- 2014
------- First Round (singles)
------- Segond Round (singles)
------- Third Round (singles)
------- Fourth Round (singles)
------- Quarterfinals (singles)
------- Single Semifinals
------- Single Finals


As you can see, the "week" is an important issue to be included as it could include lot of single games. Ones can be numbers (see Liga BBVA) and others can be text (see Formula 1 or Australian Open Grand Slam).

Hope it helps!

zag, I saw that you included a "Teams" section. Some basic data that you should be displayed there:
  • Team name
  • Sport
  • Country
  • City
  • Founded
  • Ground
  • Capacity
  • Current president
  • Current manager
  • League
  • Website

Also a logo of the team and some info about next match and recently played ones. Here you can see an example of what I mean:
