suspension following a meltdown in Shanghai. A from daniao's blog

Cyril Riolis last-gasp goal lifted Hawthorn to a pulsating 11. Patrik Laine Jersey .9 (75) to 10.10 (70) win over Sydney to take the reigning triple premiers two games clear at the top of the AFL.Thursday nights top-of-the-table cracker went down to the wire at the SCG as two quality rivals picked and prodded each other until the final siren.The Swans led after the first and third quarters in front of 42,314 spectators - the venues biggest crowd since 1997 - and held a one-point lead with less than three minutes on the clock.But Riolis late heroics were the difference for the Hawks in the five-point win.It settled the score on Sydneys round-nine victory at the MCG and hands Alastair Clarksons men the mental edge heading into any potential finals meeting.For the Swans it was a second golden opportunity missed to go top, just a fortnight after the Western Bulldogs denied them the summit.It came despite Gary Rohans career-high four goals and an impressive performance from youngster Tom Papley, who booted two of his own.Rohan put Sydney on the board first with his 50th career goal as the Swans took the opening term by nine points and led the inside 50 and contested possession counts by eight.But the Hawks returned with a vengeance to keep their long-time rivals to zero goals and one point in a dominant second quarter.Small forwards Rioli (two goals, 17 possessions) and Paul Puopolo (one goal, 18 possessions) fired up to give some of the Swans younger backmen a schooling, as John Longmires league-best defence struggled to get out of their half despite Lance Franklins (two goals) best efforts.However the 11-point halftime lead didnt hold as Sydney rediscovered their efficiency.Papley booted the Swans first goal since the opening quarter before Rohan brought the scores level and then kicked Sydney clear with his third and fourth majors.With everything on the line in the fourth, Jonathon Ceglar put the Hawks in front by a point with less than nine minutes to run.But within the blink of an eye Papley struck again, out-foxing Luke Hodge to bomb a long-range beauty.When Shaun Burgoyne slotted his second to narrow Sydneys already-slim lead to a solitary point, the stage was set for Rioli to set sail his 55m winner.Hodge could attract the ire of the match review panel for a sling tackle on Callum Sinclair.The Swans will have some concerns over Zak Jones, who was carried from the field with a leg injury in the final term. Connor Hellebuyck Jets Jersey .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. Kyle Connor Jets Jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. http://www.jetsauthentic.com/authentic-blake-wheeler-jets-jersey/ .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Nick Kyrgios has reacted to his snubbing for the Newcombe Medal for Australias best tennis player with his trademark indifference.The world No.13 made his feelings known in a Twitter exchange with fellow Australian rising star Thanasi Kokkinakis.Surely Im nominated at the Newcombe Medal this year?!? Kokkinakis tweeted, tongue planted in cheek.Kyrgios replied with equal sarcasm: Kokky this applies to us both.The 21-year-olds failure to be nominated for the Tennis Australia awardd comes as little surprise after his season ended in an three-week suspension following a meltdown in Shanghai. Adam Lowry Jets Jersey. yrgios, who has long-held anti-authoritarian attitudes, left little doubt of his disdain for the national tennis body when he re-tweeted a follower who described the Newcombe Medal as slowly morphing into the teachers pet award.
