Hi Randy,

It sounds like you want Safari to come to the front displaying the desired page, so the suggested HTTPPost wouldn't be a solution, and the IE object won't work on Mac.  Sounds like you need to build a URL to launch Safari with, that includes player particulars.  The question is, will the website look for those particulars.  Something like this -

  http://nahl.stats.pointstreak.com/playerpage.html?playerid=6272831&seasonid=9507

where the basic url      http://nahl.stats.pointstreak.com/playerpage.html

 has arguments appended     ?playerid=6272831&seasonid=9507

So if you can find a page that works that way, and you have the needed information to append as arguments, you could concatenate your URL and feed it to 

  Calculate script as con('Open Location "',url,'"',chr(13))
  Calculate #F as $runapplescript(script,result)
