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.

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

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
