NEWS REAL

• The NFL said today (Nov. 13) that it would move the Monday night game on Nov. 19  (ESPN) between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams, originally scheduled for Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.

According to the NFL, “The decision is based on the determination — in consultation with the NFLPA and following a meeting and field inspection this afternoon by NFL and club field experts as well as local and independent outside experts — that the playing field at Estadio Azteca does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday.”

• CBS said that Tim Tebow would be the host for its in-production reality series, Million Dollar Mile, from LeBron James’ Springhill Entertainment, Warner Bros. and  Fly on the Wall Entertainment. Commentators will be Maria Taylor and Matt Smith. The premise: A team wins $1 million if they can survive an obstacle course being built on real city streets.

• ESPN Events is adding a bowl game to its roster beginning in 2020, the Myrtle Beach Bowl. The game will feature teams from three conference partners: Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt Conference. Each conference will participate up to four times between 2020 and 2025. The Myrtle Beach Bowl will be played in Brooks Stadium, located on the campus of Coastal Carolina, nationally televised on ESPN networks.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

Pro Bull Riders RidePass Channel: ‘Western Sports. Anywhere. Anytime. No Limits’

By Barry Janoff

January 5, 2018: Even as they take over New York to launch their 25th anniversary tour, Pro Bull Riders has bigger plans: Bringing their nitty, gritty, hard-riding competitions to the masses.

Pro Bull Riders has unveiled details for RidePass, a streaming and on-demand channel scheduled launch in February, described as “Western Sports. Anywhere. Anytime. No Limits.”

RidePass will stream exclusive live and on-demand action from the PBR 25th Anniversary Tour and the Real Time Pain Velocity Tours, and will also be loaded with content to include premier rodeos, original series, news, behind-the-scenes features and opinion available via computer, tablet or smart phone.

The channel comes as Pro Bull Riders said its coverage on CBS Sports would be expanding this year to 52 telecasts from the PBR 25th Anniversary Tour that will be aired on either CBS or CBS Sports Network.

The PBR 25th Anniversary Tour launched this weekend (Jan. 5-7) with the Monster Energy Buck Off at the Garden in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

”Complementing our great TV offering on CBS and CBS Sports Network, we are excited to announce that our new digital streaming service, RidePass, will launch in February 2018,” PBR CEO Sean Gleason said during a recent news event.
 
“We have been working diligently to create a robust digital platform that will provide fans with more live bull riding action, spanning multiple PBR tours, as well as original programming exclusive to RidePass.”

Not limited to PBR events, Gleason said that RidePass would also bring “other live western lifestyle sports and original content to members.“

Marketing partners and sponsors will be integrated in to RidePass programming and events.

National partners include Bass Pro Shops, Caterpillar,Cooper Tires, Ford, Jack Daniel’s. Kawasaki, Visit Las Vegas, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Monster Energy and Wranger.

A preview spot offers highlights of action interspersed with some details of what RidePass will offer:

• Stay on top of the latest news, insight, and opinion from the top PBR and Rodeo personalities from around the world.

• Catch live action you can't get anywhere else: PBR 25th Anniversary Tour, Global Cup and Velocity and international tours!

• Dive deeper into the world of rodeo and western sports with new scripted and original series, as well as documentaries on your favorite riders and bulls.

According to Gleason, “RidePass is just one of many ways we continue to invest to ensure that PBR — and now other complementary western lifestyle sports — are accessible to our fans.

“While the first few events of the year will not be broadcast digitally as we prepare for the February launch, I am confident that you will be pleased with RidePass as a comprehensive experience for the most passionate fans in sports,” said Gleason.

PBR did not yet indicate which events would be the first to air exclusively on RidePass.

The PBR 25th Anniversary Tour upcoming schedule includes the Chicago Invitational (Jan. 13-14), The Express Employment Pro Invitational (Oklahoma City, Jan. 20-21), Wrangler Long Live Cowboys Classic (Sacramento, Jan. 26-28), the Anaheim Invitational (Feb. 2-3), the Caterpillar Classic (Kansas, Mo., Feb. 9-11), the St. Louis Invitational (Feb. 17-18), the Winstar World Casino and Resort Iron Cowboy Powered by Kawasaki (Arlington, Texas, Feb. 24-25) and the Pro Bull Riders Batboy Lowdown (North Little Rock, Ark., March 2-3).
