I don't see why we wouldn't have this identifier when we have the ESPN.com NFL one. Bender235 (talk) 17:30, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

@DannyS712, ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2, Сидик из ПТУ, Gabbg82: fun fact that I just noticed: ESPN's college football player ID is identical to the NFL player ID (once a player makes it to the NFL, I assume). See Saquon Barkley: what used to be his ESPN.com college football player ID (https://www.espn.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=3929630) is now his NFL player ID (https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/3929630). Should we merge these to identifiers now? --Bender235 (talk) 14:33, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Yes, we should.Сидик из ПТУ (talk) 14:35, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
