This is a major improvement to the previous specification. A couple of points others have also made:

* I think the “sport” property is too specific, and a more generic “discipline” would be more generally applicable. Also, the range should be to an Intangible “Discipline”, which might take instances from DBpedia, or some could be defined within schema.org. As always, it’s acceptable to use plain text here as with other schema.org properties expecting an entity.

* I don’t think we’ve adequately looked at seasons; In my model, a Season is a subclass of event (probably CompetitionEvent or SportsEvent, which contains the individual competitions taking place during that season. It’s also useful for projecting player and coach references, which would be similar to those Roles having the same event start/end times, but better makes up a team roster for a given season. There are also other things that could be tagged to a Season, such as the name of the SportsTeam during this season, their venue and other things that may change over time.
