Motivation edit

The Athletic is a news outlet owned by The New York Times covering a wide range of sports. They have team pages on their site, which includes statistical information about the team as well as the latest articles they've written about them.

Note that there are multiple formatter URLs for this property -- the URL includes "football", "nfl", "mlb", etc depending on which sport the team plays. However, if you link to the wrong sport, the site will automatically redirect to the correct URL, so it won't cause issues for us (try out examples 1, 3, and 5 above; the URL will automatically change from "football" to the correct sport).

Discussion edit

  • The property passes the bar on notability. It seems a bit weird to me that there is no ' team ID' property for American football. I would think that is a better source than a newspaper who in all likelihood gets their information from some place like that. Infrastruktur (talk) 13:06, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
