As a University of Illinois alumna, I can say from experience that no fan base is as paranoid about the officials as Illini fans are.

The one exception being, oh, every other zealous sports fan base on the planet. Remember “fan” is short for “fanatic,” and one thing that every member of all zealous fan bases has in common is a serious belief that the refs are all out to get their team. Which makes RefRatings, a new app that just launched in 2019 and is available for free in the App Store, timeless.

How Roger Federer is Doing Better than Most Against Father Time

2018 will mark the second year in which a period of three weeks runs in between the end of the French Open and the start of Wimbledon. The slight extension of off time between tennis grand slam events may seem like a minor detail, thing but in the extremely structured, overly-micromanaged big money global sporting universe, this is a big deal.

With every event and tournament, there is an extensive amount of energy put into making sure optimum exposure, on multiple levels, is achieved. You have to make considerations for sponsorships, facility needs, venue concerns, athletes, the athletes supports staff and so much more. With so many different competing interests, you better believe that it takes years of behind the scenes maneuvering by the game’s powers-that-be to make this one shift come to fruition.
