Around The Kingdom: Mike Moustakas, Replay, College Football, Westeros



Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.

Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowhead Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.

Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom.

On Kings of Kauffman, David Hill takes a look at Mike Moustakas’ new batting stance. David argues, rightfully so, that despite the poor early results, it is way too early for Mike Moustakas to scrap the stance.

However, despite the rough start to the season, this new approach may be working, at least to a degree. Over his eight at bats, Mike Moustakas has seen 36 pitches, or 4.5 per at bat. He has either fouled away or laid off pitches that he was missing last season. Despite not having a hit, Moustakas has been hitting the ball more to the opposite field and to center.

On Arrowhead Pride, Joel Thorman discusses how the Kansas City Chiefs’ off season is similar to that of the Green Bay Packers. Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey, of course, came to the Chiefs from the Packers.

Tyler Drenon of Royals Review is not a fan of instant replay. Enjoy his excellent tirade against replay, not only in baseball, but in the NFL as well. Tyler and KC Kingdom writer Craig Webb could be best friends.

The damage I’m referring to is the soap operatic pageantry that you see in the NFL. Where head coaches have become actors, but more importantly, they’ve become much more involved in the outcome of football games. Instead of teaching and drawing up strategies — which they still do, of course — their main focus during games has become the manipulation of it.

David Morrison of the Columbia Tribune investigates the feelings about college athletes unionizing. Ask college graduates how much money in student loans they owe; athletes are getting a free college education that many normal college students spend years, if not decades, paying off.

The Manhattan Mercury announces the beginning of spring football practices. It seems if the season just finished. You can never quit thinking about football, as a rule of thumb!

As we get closer to the the season premier of Game of Thrones this Sunday night, just check out this map of Westeros from FanSided.com, as your re-acquaint yourselves with the locales from the mega hit on HBO.
