Premier League Commentary Widget

Can be viewed here.

This was an AS3 Flash build using PureMVC and Flash Player 10 3D transforms for rendering.

The chain of comments are fed by a server-side RESTful XML API written in Java (not mine) which is in turn fed by several syndicated Premier League feeds. This is polled every couple of seconds by the Flash application before updates are pulled through. Old games can be viewed using the same widget / service making a fun trip down memory lane for the truly hardcore footy fan.

The overall effect was to provide an almost teletext-style of feed for the user, but bringing it up to the modern day with interesting visuals and filters for the timeline
