If you are unlucky you would get the "first date" to be (one of) the
corrupted XML:s...

Could you do (while in the fetchedXMLs-directory)

grep -H "NOT AVAILABLE" all_players*.xml

Then you will get all the filenames (and rows) where NOT AVAILABLE occurs.

The best would be to avoid downloading XML:s with NOT AVAILABLE. We will
try to implement this (I think) quite soon. The problem now is how to find

You could try to change name of your Choices/Mattricks-directory to
Choices/Mattricks2 or something similar and make

./mattricks.py import *.xml

I do not know if it will work as expected and you probably would like to
move the "NOT AVAILABLE"-xml:s before doing that.
