Although this repository has been named unofficial by its author, al101 has been the main developer supporting SportsDevil for over a year now, so this is pretty much as must-have if you want to actually be able to enjoy this add-on.  If you already have it installed, simply installing the repository will ensure that your addon itself remains up-to-date.
