No, it does make some sense in the case where part of the dataset is going to be accessed by multiple independent applications, and I think the generic sports bits may actually fit that. It's cleaner from a design point of view, and it prevents accidentally deleting that data when the original application is taken out of production.

In my particular environment, we have quite a few of these generic databases; although from similar design ideology, they are also accessed only through their own REST interfaces, and not directly.
