That could potentially be very, very useful. The formula would need to be enhanced for usability, but something like that would have utility from fans to broadcasters to journalists. Not just connections to Mike Sillinger obviously, but a resource to see who has played with who in an instant.

I don't have that level of technical knowhow. If I did, I would have given it a shot.
