Complete Data Retrieval, Metadata Retrieval

Using the parameters 'feedtype', 'feed' and 'layer' together will retrieve ESPN data that is '|' section delimited, '~' segment delimited and '*' element delimited.

'layer=meta' will retrieve the metadata about the ESPN feed. Information on how to find the available 'feedtype' and 'feed' values can be found here.

What that link returns will look like this if viewed in a browser:
