Before the run, fans became worried about the viability of these Red Rocks performances, given that the group had canceled a show at the Belly Up Aspen, announcing that the band was too sick to perform the lead-up mountain-town shows. However, clearly, the days of rest paid off, with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats playing standout shows in their hometown’s most beloved venue.While Rateliff opened Wednesday night’s show noting that “I’ve got to be honest with you: I’ve been sick. We had to cancel a show last night,” the opening remarks came after his declaration that “These two nights are the most important nights of our year.” With that, the group launched into a fiery performance, highlighting the group’s genre-blending talents. From soulful crooning to boot-stompin’ country to heartfelt folk melodies and beyond, Nathaniel Rateliff and company worked through classics of their songbook, including an end-of-set take on debatably their most famous tune, “S.O.B.”, evoking a huge breadth of emotions across the crowd.Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats – “S.O.B.” – Red Rocks Amphitheatre – 8/22/2018center_img Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Miles Robinson aims to return Syracuse men’s soccer to form after returning from US national team

first_img Published on October 12, 2016 at 8:48 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Missing from what was one of the nation’s steadiest defenses was its central defender. The player whose head rises above the others on header opportunities. The one who starts fast breaks by clearing balls out to midfielders as often as he stops opponents from doing so.The one who, even as a center back, scored four goals in Syracuse’s first nine games.The Orange, amid a four-game winless streak, has missed Miles Robinson since the 6-foot-2, 185-pound sophomore left. He has not played the last two games — both Syracuse losses — since being called to the United States Men’s Under-20 National Team.Lately, miscommunication and missed assignments have plagued the Syracuse defense. Without Robinson, SU’s unit wasn’t thin — Louis Cross, Kamal Miller and John-Austin Ricks are capable of holding down the line — but lacked the body that powered it to the No. 2 ranking. After a week with the national team, Robinson returns to the heart of No. 10 Syracuse’s (8-3-1, 2-2-1 Atlantic Coast) defense Friday night vs. No. 15 Virginia Tech.“I’ll try to make it easy for the boys,” Robinson said. “Just get everything back to normal.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTony D. Curtis | Staff PhotographerSyracuse has searched for the momentum it built in its start since its first loss on Sept. 23. The Orange has not won since Sept. 20, dropping to No. 10 from stints at No. 2 to No. 3 in the NSCAA poll. Syracuse looks lighter defensively and hasn’t had its primary threat on set pieces, where Robinson thrives.Three of his team-leading four goals have come on sets in which he headed the ball into the net. Opponents put their best bodies on Robinson but succumb to his athleticism. He routinely beats out his teammates in weight room and agility testing.“The ball’s in the air, out of nowhere you hear Miles Robinson,” freshman midfielder Mo Adams said. “All you hear is ‘Miles’s ball’ and that’s when you know to get out of the way for Miles to win the header.”“He’s miles ahead of everybody.”Robinson, who was offered the national team spot a few weeks ago, started two games last week in Manchester, England. He didn’t see the field in a game against Germany but started against Holland and England. One of only three collegiate players to have made the trip, Robinson could re-join the team in January.Tony D. Curtis | Staff PhotographerLast Friday at Louisville, Syracuse played a 4-4-2 formation instead of its standard 3-5-2. It commanded possession throughout the second half, outshot the Cardinals, 11-6, and allowed only two shots on goal. But an early defensive mistake let one of the nation’s best scorers find the back of the net for what proved to be the game-winner.Had Robinson been there, players said, the goal probably would not have been prevented. But it’s his mere presence they expect will buttress the Syracuse defense. With him, the defense can return to its standard set and try to give opposing playmakers headaches again.“He’s an absolute beast,” Adams said. “I’ve never seen anyone go past him. It’s amazing to have him behind me. I feel more confident when I have the ball. He’s always there to sweep up.”He started in all 25 games last year and all 10 games this year until the Albany game last week. He scored goals in two of his last three games before leaving for the national team. In a 3-2 overtime victory over St. John’s, he halved his 2015 scoring total with his two-goal and one-assist clinic. Against No. 2 Notre Dame, he scored SU’s lone goal on a header off a corner with less than 12 minutes in regulation. His goal tied the game and sent it to overtime.“He’s definitely the guy you want to look for on a corner kick,” said Callahan, who usually kicks corners. “In my opinion, he’s the best header on the ball in college soccer. Not having him is a bit of a loss.”The Syracuse offense has stalled since its 8-0 historic start. Its defense hasn’t been sharp. The Orange has played its worst soccer without its sophomore center back.Robinson could stabilize a wobbly Syracuse team. All he wants to do is lift a slipping unit back to normalcy.

Operators unite for inaugural Responsible Gambling Week Ireland

first_img The Irish gambling industry is coming together to support the launch of the first ever Responsible Gambling Week Ireland.It is the biggest social responsibility campaign that has been held in Ireland. The theme for the campaign is simply, “A great tip – know when to stop” with the aim of starting conversations about what it means to gamble responsibly. This national awareness campaign will run from 5-11 February 2018.Sharon Byrne, Chairperson for the Irish Bookmakers Association (IBA) spoke to SBC about the initiative and how positive it can be when it comes to encouraging responsible gambling in Ireland. SBC: Can you further explain the importance of initiatives like Ireland’s first Responsible Gambling Week?Sharon Byrne: Responsible gambling week is the first ever cross industry initiative of its kind in Ireland. It’s about getting the message out there that gambling is supposed to be fun, and there are some tools and tips for keeping it that way and identifying possible problems that may be developing. It is also about letting people know about the services that are available for people affected by problem gambling. SBC: Could reveal what it is that you hope to achieve in this week?SB: We hope to achieve a greater awareness about gambling and how it can affect a small number of people in a negative way. We also hope that it will let people know about the services available and how to access them.SBC: What methods can operators utilise to continue promoting safe gambling and build on this week?SB: Operators should continue to build upon the measures already introduced such as staff training, self-exclusion, time outs, deposit and/or staking limits, time limits, breaks, etc. By following international best practice, and continually improving current practices and safeguards, we can make gambling safer for those who may have an addictive personality. Increased public awareness about how to gamble safely and how to access support services is also needed, along with ensuring all operators in the gambling industry apply the same principles and practices.SBC: Whilst in England FOBTs are at the heart of problem gambling, can you outline some of the problem gambling issues that affect Irish bettors?SB In Ireland there are many ways to gamble, not just inside a betting shop or at an online betting site, such as race tracks, lottery, scratch cards, card clubs, tote, poker nights, arcades, machines in pubs and unfortunately via black market operators set up in pubs or internet cafes. It is important that the entire licensed gambling sector embrace this week and what it is trying to achieve. We are looking forward to the introduction of the Gambling Control bill as it will ensure all operators comply and contribute all year round.SBC: How important is it that Responsible Gambling week is extended to Live betting events as well as retail betting?SB: The Responsible gambling week message applies to all sectors of the gambling industry, not just retail betting or live betting. It is being promoted at the race tracks, dog tracks and coursing events taking place that week also.Sharon will be speaking on a panel at this year’s Betting on Football Conference (20-23 March). She will be discussing how operators can increase responsible gambling as part of The Customer Journey track which will be on based around building the perfect customer environment and striking a balance between a smooth and safe registration process.
