This sounds close - I think what I am looking for is the unique combination
of a team and a roster term and be able to assign that to a player.  I
don't want to create a unique roster term for each team for each season but
that is effectively what I'd do IF I go down the hierarchical CPT path.

I guess I essentially want to create a third taxonomy based on the Team
CPTs and the Roster terms.  Has anyone done something like this?  Seems a
little risky as terms and team names could change but it would definitely
let me define a unique connection between a player and a team's roster for
a particular season.
