Referee shortage could cancel youth sports games

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A shortage of referees could lead to the cancellation of youth sports games this fall season.

“We are at that point where there are examples across the state where games are being canceled on a weekly basis because of the shortage of referees,” said Chad Collins, a State Referee Administrator for US Soccer in Kentucky and the General Counsel for the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

For soccer, they lose 50 percent of referees annually, and have had to go to extra lengths to make sure games are officiated.

Collins said high school football and basketball are impacted even more, and are down twenty referees statewide this year.

The shortage, which Collins explained is impacting all sports in the US is due to multiple factors, namely the increasing bad behavior by parents, coaches, and even some players.

“Attacks are very viscous in nature and it’s

NBA 2K23’s Jordan Challenge Looks So Good, I’m Now Annoyed With All Other Sports Games

When Visual Concepts used NBA 2K11 to celebrate the illustrious career of basketball’s greatest player, Michael Jordan, the end result was a fun side attraction from the main game. The Jordan Challenge allowed players to re-enact 10 of Jordan’s greatest career highlights in ways that might’ve felt nostalgic or educational, depending on the age and knowledge of any particular player. In NBA 2K23, the Jordan Challenge is returning, but it appears to be far from a rehash of highlights long-time players already experienced. Bigger than before and with incredible attention to detail, the NBA 2K23 Jordan Challenge looks so cool that it’s made me frustrated that no other sports sims are doing something similar.

This year’s Jordan Challenge is plainly bigger on a basic level, giving players 15 challenges based on Jordan’s most iconic moments. These include moments like The Shrug, The Flu Game, and even Jordan’s “last dance” game

There’s always various roads you can take when going into franchise mode, but rebuilds are usually the most popular way to play them — assuming you’re not using your favorite team. With Madden 23 franchise mode, we already put forth some teams in various stages of team building, but I really wanted to focus in on five teams that would be fun to rebuild in Madden 23 franchise mode.

The Washington Commanders are the highest-rated team on this list — a true middle-of-the-pack option — but there is still plenty of rebuilding that needs to be done. This starts at QB as the Commanders are certainly in the

Field of Dreams Game 2022: Minor-leaguers get their night on big stage

By Jake Mintz
FOX Sports MLB Writer

DYERSVILLE, Iowa — There’s a moment in every midsummer night minor-league ballgame, usually around the sixth inning or so, when the sun has already dipped beyond the horizon, yet the sky is still bright and blue enough for baseball.

It’s the golden hour, the precious minutes in which time freezes, and summer feels endless, and life itself becomes entirely weightless, at least for an inning or two.

But Tuesday night outside Dyersville, Iowa, that priceless moment yawned and stretched itself out across a full nine. Hidden deep within the state’s endless rolling hills, nestled among miles and miles of green-yellow cornstalk, the Field of Dreams Stadium played host to a minor-league matchup for the very first time.

In 2021, the makeshift ballpark, carved out of cornfields just yards away from the “Field of Dreams” movie site, opened with quite a bit of fanfare,

More Football Fans Than Ever Are Streaming Games and Here’s How to Reach Them

It’s a tradition for sports fans to gather around the television with friends and families to cheer (or jeer) their favorite football teams. While this is still true, how they’re watching is changing as more viewers make the switch from linear TV to streaming. According to eMarketer’s projection, one-third of the US population (118 million people) are predicted to stream live sports in 2025, a 71% increase compared to 2021.

2022 marks a new chapter for live sports viewing as Prime Video and Twitch are now the exclusive streaming home to Thursday Night Football (TNF). As Roger Goodell said earlier this year, “Amazon Prime is going to change the way people watch football.”

The historic, 11-year partnership between the NFL and Amazon gives advertisers the opportunity to reach passionate sports fans that, based on a recent studyare more tech-savvy, active and engaged than the NFL viewer on traditional linear

NFL schedule 2022: NFL to add Black Friday game as soon as 2023 season, per report

USA Today

The NFL has been busy tinkering with its schedule over the past couple of years. They took away one preseason game, added an extra regular season game and set up a Christmas triple header for 2022. The NFL is again expected to try something different in the future, in the form of adding a Black Friday game as soon as 2023, per Sports Business Journal.

The NFL is known for its Thanksgiving games, and adding a game on the day after Thanksgiving would just add to its dominance of the week/weekend. Just this past Thanksgiving, the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Dallas Cowboys delivered an estimated 38,531 million viewers, which made it the most-watched NFL regular season game on any network since 1990.

It would be Amazon that would reportedly stream this Black Friday game, however, as SBJ reported that the idea picked up steam while the company
