[Tutor] Python List Help

Hi all, 


I am a PHP developer that just started learning Python for a specific
application and the transition has been pretty easily assisted by google,
but I just don’t see the issue with this one?


I’ve got a list that created and populate in a loop that shows the correct
info when I print it, but if I try to print array[0], it says the list index
is out of range.


Here is the code snippet. Basically, I have a link here that I am pulling
the href info from and splitting it up, only keeping the 5th value, which I
am then adding to the playerid array.


playerid = []

                for i in range(0, players):

                                player = playerlink[i]['href'] 

                                breakup = player.split('/')



                stats = test.findAll(text=True)

                print len(playerid) ß this shows the expected result

                print playerid[0] ßthis kills the script



   33         print len(playerid)

   34         print playerid[0]



playerid = []

<type 'exceptions.IndexError'>: list index out of range 
      args = ('list index out of range',) 
      message = 'list index out of range' 

If I change the print playerid[0] to print playerid[1], same error, but if I
change it to print playerid[2] or higher, it will show the same error, but
the playerid= [] will show the actual list values in the debug.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
