Abstract
As the importance and prevalence of sports analytics grows, so does the inequality in sports data. In this paper we examine two main sources of such disparity - the perceived hierarchy of sports and privatization of data. We argue that such inequality hurts the sports analytics community in the short and long terms, and suggest ways for the deep-learning, AI, and sports analytics communities to help mitigate the issue. Keywords: Sports Analytics; AI; Team Sports; Diversity
