Well, for one thing, this line looks strange to me...

  $db = new dbstuff;

I don't think that's correct php syntax.

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

You didn't have to post all that code, all you had to do was say that I needed
a closing } for the if here:

if ( isset($_POST["gameid_1"]) ) {
  .
  .
  if ($db->num_rows($query) > 0) {
    list($gamenum1, $gamedate1, $visitteam1, $hometeam1, $field_name1)=$db->fetch_row($query);
  }
}

Sometimes it's easier to just post some more code instead of explaining where the closing }'s need to be added :)
