this code is for a mod_rewrite function that I have on my site. the only problem is that in the preg_match_all the programmer forgot to add in the ability to have numbers in the url.

Example:

the url for a team page works accoriding to the array: (example)

http://www.sportsrant.com/nfl/san-diego-chargers.html

and the teams with numbers in them do not: (example)

http://www.sportsrant.com/nfl/san-francisco-49ers.html

it redirects back to the home page!

Can someone please help me fix the preg_match_all

TIA,

Mike
