  •   Oppose So, the strings you've specified don't appear to merely specify a player -- it appears to specify a particular player in a particular season of a particular sport at a particular university. The org_id matches the "NCAA school code" property proposal I've recently made, and the game_sport_year_ctl_id would appear to uniquely identify a season of a sport. The part that actually identifies a player is the stats_player_seq; however, there's no apparent way to link directly to a player across their whole career. If we add the property as specified, it will result in many duplicates (one for each season a player has played in). –IagoQnsi (talk) 00:50, 1 November 2020 (UTC)
