Allow Organization's players to display League stats

The players on the two organization sites I manage also play league games in various leagues that also use SportsEngine. The players have requested that their player profile show all their collective stats rather than just the stats on our sites. Right now, our organizations' pages can only connect the player to teams played within the organization.

If I register for SportsEngine and have a SportsEngine ID# (found on the My Pofile page), any site that I have registered with and collected stats should be connected to each other when a general visitor navigates to my page.

Example: John Smith plays for the Springfield Isotopes in the Nuclear League. Both Springfield and the Nuclear League are using SportsEngine. John would like to see all his stats for league and non-league games on the Isotopes page when you click his name. The Nuclear League page would only show league game but could optionally allow a visitor to click to a John Smith Player Profile page outside the League or Isotopes sites. If John also plays in a summer tournament that uses SportsEngine, his stats would also be displayed on his personal profile page but not on the League or Isotopes pages (unless those sites allow it).

I can understand if a league or organization wants to disable access to other sites but it should be an option.

Alternately, SportsEngine could maintain a "Player" site where the player can showcase the statistics across any team/league where the profile is associated.

The players use these stats for recruiting purposes.

    This is a tough one as each organization can (and does) collects different stats at different levels of granularity. Additionally, some stats can be calculated from others and some can be straight entered which would also be problematic if each league wasn't collecting the same information.

    Today, we have the idea of career stats which rolls up your stats. You can see an example of this on the Minnesota Hockey Hub.

    Outside of that we also do provide a way for someone to see organizations and teams that a player has played on outside of the current team. See the attached screenshot
