in thread Scraping AJAX?

Thats because you need to get() the JSON data which contains the actual table you want to scrape. The content you are getting is only the page that contains the JS functions and there should also be the ajax link in there you can use to get the actual data.

Once you get that link, get() it then parse the data from there.
