    FANS will notice a changing of the guard among match officials in the early months of the new Premier League season. Experienced quartet Mike Dean, Martin Atkinson, Jon Moss and Kevin Friend will no longer be on the pitch while Tom Bramall is the sole new referee in the Prem. 1Ex-referee says it's sink or swim for new Premier League officialsCredit: PA And with the imminent departure of refs' boss Mike Riley, a shake-up will continue to take place ahead of Howard Webb's expected arrival in the winter. Promoted Bramall is young at 32 but is viewed as a promising prospect following his rapid rise through the leagues. My own refereeing journey was similar to Sheffield-based Bramall's pathway as we both spent two seasons in the National League before moving up to the Football League. After four seasons in the EFL where I've heard Championship managers rated him highly, Bramall is in the big time as the fifth ref to be promoted by the PGMOL in the last year.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has spent more than 20 years being as vague as possible before the NFL draft. He’s never met a question he didn’t like to redirect or missed an opportunity to speak in broad generalities when asked about specifics. His final time through the league’s April showcase is no different. For the first time in nearly two decades, the Steelers head to the draft in need of a quarterback following Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement and the death of Dwyane Haskins earlier this month. There will likely be a handful of prospects available when Pittsburgh goes on the clock with the 20th overall pick in the first round. Just don’t expect Colbert have commissioner Roger Goodell sprint to the podium with a selection. To the end, Colbert remains as deliberate — and as noncommittal — as ever. “Quarterback is obviously a huge position in any given season, especially this year with our Hall of Fame quarterback calling it a career,” Colbert said in March. “So, is it different this year? Yes. But...
    Joe Burrow’s resilience leads the Bengals to the Super Bowl, and perhaps loftier heights, Jimmy Garoppolo’s trade market, and much more  This past weekend, in more ways than one, we all witnessed a changing of the guard in the NFL. “I’ll tell you this,” a Super Bowl-winning NFL personnel executive tells FanSided. “At his age, Joe Burrow is better than Tom Brady because of his foot quickness and athleticism. He’s a better athlete today than Tom Brady ever was.” While that might sound like a stretch, at age 25 for Burrow to already be better than the greatest quarterback to play the game, his ceiling just might be approaching the summit Brady reached in his career that came to an end with his retirement announcement Tuesday. From Brady to Burrow, from New England and Tampa Bay to Cincinnati, Ohio, of all places, as Burrow’s Bengals dispelled Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs to clinch the franchise’s second Super Bowl berth, Brady was readying his retirement announcement in the NFL. Sunday afternoon, Burrow walked into the visiting locker room inside Arrowhead Stadium...

Jason Sudeikis Kate Winslet Olivia Colman and Jean Smart at Emmy Awards Interestingly enough, the Primetime Emmys’ “changing of the guard” from the cable era to the streaming era has unfolded over the course of the run of Netflix’s The Crown, the first season of which was Emmy-eligible in 2017 and the fourth and most recent season of which was Emmy-eligible this year. In 2017, Hulu became the first streaming service to claim one of the big three series Emmys — drama, comedy or limited/anthology — when The Handmaid’s Tale was named best drama. Amazon carried forward the torch with its best comedy wins for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Fleabag in 2018 and 2019, respectively. And on Sunday night, both Apple TV+, which launched less than two years ago, and Netflix, the most prominent streamer, joined the club as Apple’s Ted Lasso won best comedy and Netflix’s The...

    THE changing of the guard replacing Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as football’s biggest hitters could move a step closer this week as Juventus and Barcelona fight for their Champions League lives. Ronaldo and Messi have dominated Europe’s top competition to such an extent it is 16 years since at least one of their clubs failed to make the quarter-finals. 3The changing of the guard is under way as veteran stars like Cristiano Ronaldo face Champions League exitsCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Lionel Messi and Ronaldo are on the verge of leaving at the last-16 stageCredit: Icon Sport - Getty Both superstars have led from the front with so much impact that one of the pair has won nine of the tournaments since that run began in the 2004-05 season. But their powers are on the wane as emerging forces like Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland establish themselves as the new forces in world football. And unless they can roll back the clock this week, both could find themselves looking on from the outside when the Champions League gets to...
    FOR the better part of 20 years the question has been: Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? But now it's fair to say people should be asking: Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland? 5Haaland and Mbappe are already well on their way to taking over from Ronaldo and Messi as football's kings 5Mbappe scored a hat-trick as PSG stunned Barcelona 4-1 at the Nou Camp on TuesdayCredit: Getty Images - Getty Ronaldo, 36, and Messi, 33, have thrilled - and utterly divided - fans in their battle for the 'GOAT' crown since their rivalry began in the early-mid 00s. They've won a combined 11 Ballons d'Or and more Big Five league titles and Champions League medals than you can shake a stick at. However, if recent months are anything to go by, there's something of a changing of the guard. Fortunately for football fans, it appears we're just getting started with a brand-new rivalry between two young, superstar strikers. This week alone, Mbappe scored a hat-trick at the Nou Camp to inspire Paris Saint-Germain to a 4-1 win over Barcelona in their...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Russell Westbrook is headed to the Washington Wizards and John Wall is moving to the Houston Rockets in a significant swap of point guards — one an MVP, the other a No. 1 overall draft pick — just weeks before the season starts. The Wizards shipped a future lottery-protected first round pick to the Rockets on Wednesday night. “Having the opportunity to acquire a player of Russell’s caliber and character was something that we could not pass up when looking at both the immediate and long-term future of our team,” Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said in a release. “With that said, the decision to part ways with John, one of the greatest players in franchise history, was extremely difficult. What he has meant to our organization and our community is immeasurable and will not be forgotten.” While Wall has played his entire professional career in the nation’s capital, the move ends Westbrook’s tenure in Houston after just one disappointing season. He arrived from Oklahoma City in July 2019 for Chris Paul and draft picks. The Rockets...

In a corresponding move, the team has claimed Shaq Calhoun off waivers from the Dolphins, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. © Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Redmond has started 17 games for the Bengals. Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Redmond worked his way onto the Bengals’ roster and eventually earned a starting spot along the team’s offensive front. In 2018, Redmond started 15 games for Cincinnati, though he was not particularly effective. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season for violating the league’s PED policy, and he ultimately appeared in just three games (two starts) last season due to the suspension and injury. In Calhoun, the Bengals are getting a slightly younger player to provide O-line depth....
