    This was a beauty of an AFL grand final, punctuated by constant high drama and a succession of highlights. Nike Shox Mens Clearance .But in the end, the Western Bulldogs drought-breaking premiership win came down to something much more matter-of-fact.The Bulldogs had more players contributing than Sydney did.It was, put simply, a better team effort.An AFL maxim holds that the top six players in a team dont win the flag - the bottom six do.Asked what went wrong, Swans coach John Longmire zeroed in on it.We think we probably needed to work a little bit harder, a little more consistently over the four quarters, Longmire said.We werent quite up to the workrate we normally get from our group and probably the Bulldogs consistency over their 22 versus ours - we probably didnt have as many contributors on the day.Minutes later, Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge was also asked how they had prevailed in such a tight contest.In the end we again had the even contribution of the 22 and in big games like this, you have to have that, he said.Bulldogs players such as Caleb Daniel and Jake Stringer had quiet days, but they contributed.Daniel finished strongly after not managing an effective kick or handball in the first term. Stringer kicked a crucial last-quarter goal.Key defender Joel Hamling played the game of his life, winning some massive one-on-one duels with Swans star Lance Franklin.At the other end of the ground, high-profile recruit Tom Boyd picked the perfect day to show exactly why the Bulldogs spent so much money to bring him to Whitten Oval.He took six contested marks and kicked three goals in a command performance.Today, when we needed our players to find their very-best performance, he found his in a grand final, Beveridge said.Beveridge also heaped praise on his assistant coaches, particularly former Geelong stars Joel Corey and Steven King.They were in charge of the midfield and at halftime, they had to come up with something.Swans star Josh Kennedy was clearly best afield at that stage with 22 possessions.Beveridge said the tinkering that Corey and King did with their midfielders made a huge difference.Kennedy was still Sydneys best at the end, but his influence on the game notably lessened in the third term especially as the Bulldogs steadily took control.Of course, another key factor was the free-kick count - a whopping 20-8 in the Bulldogs favour.It left the Swans seething and Longmire could only laugh ruefully when asked about it post-match.But ultimately, the game was still there for Sydney to win. Not enough of their players seized the moment. Nike Shox Cheap . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. Nike Shox Clearance . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . .

Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout.MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United manager David Moyes says Wayne Rooney injured his hamstring before the clubs preseason tour to Asia and Australia and dismissed suggestions the striker is set to leave the club. Rooney returned home after only one day in Thailand and is expected to be out of action for a month, placing him in doubt for Uniteds first match of the Premier League season against Swansea on Aug. 17. "The day we left (Manchester for the tour) he just felt his hamstring tighten up right at the end of training and we thought there would be no problem," Moyes said. "But after the long flight we decided wed get him tested and scanned and have a look at things, and there is just a small grade one injury there. "We wont take any chances -- there is no point in taking him any further round the world, so weve sent him back and hell get treatment. Nike Shox Nz. " Rooney wrote on his Facebook page: "Gutted to have picked up a niggling injury especially as training was going so well, heading back to Manchester to have it assessed fully but early indications are nothing to worry about." The early return provoked further speculation about Rooneys future. Previous United manager Alex Ferguson revealed Rooney asked to leave the club at the end of last season, while Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that the 27-year-old England international is a player he admires. "People are entitled to talk about good players," Moyes said. "I am being asked plenty about Wayne, so I am sure Jose will be getting asked about lots of players as well. "It is hard to keep repeating myself but I will do. Wayne is a Manchester United player and will remain that." Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Camo China NFL Jerseys Black China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys WholesaleNFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
