Football Pool

This plugin adds a fantasy sports pool to your blog. Play against other users, predict outcomes of matches and earn points.

Important: If you want to use a translated version of the pool, make sure you set the correct WPLANG. To use your own custom translation see the FAQ for more information on translating the plugin.
