Would this method allow you to sort say by 'wins' and then by 'pf'? Not all the data in the arrays is direct from the mysql table. I had thought about doing the data manipulation and then sending it to a new table and then querying that using ORDER BY but thought it must be possible to do the sorting in php so I didn't have to query the database twice. Out of interest which method is more programmatically correct?
