Geelong star and overwhelming Brownlow Medal favourite Patrick Dangerfield has dominated voting for the AFL Players Association most valuable player award. Authentic Peter Kalambayi Jersey .Dangerfield won his first Leigh Matthews Trophy with a whopping 1369 votes.His former Adelaide teammate Rory Sloane was well off the pace in second place with 443 votes, while Richmond midfielder Dustin Martin was third with 297.Current players vote on the award.The margin is similar to last year, when Fremantles Nat Fyfe won with 1455 and went on to take out the Brownlow.Last year, North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein was runner-up on 578 and Dangerfield (364) was third.Dangerfield took his game to a new level after making the high-profile move late last year from the Crows to the Cats.He is hotly-favoured to become only the ninth player to win the most valuable player award and the Brownlow in the same season.Apart from Fyfe last year, among current players to achieve the feat, Gold Coast captain Gary Ablett did it in 2009 and 2013.Also on Tuesday night, Sydneys Luke Parker won the Robert Rose award as the leagues most courageous player for the second-straight season.Sydneys Rising Star winner Callum Mills took out the associations best first-year player award, while Adelaides Taylor Walker was named best captain.Western Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli was named captain of the associations under-22 team for the season and Essendon onballer Zach Merrett is the vice-captain.Last Friday nights epic qualifying final win over Hawthorn means Dangerfield and his teammates have the week off.They will face the winner of Saturdays SCG semi-final between Sydney and the Crows in a preliminary final, with the winner going into the grand final.Dangerfield said it was a privilege to win the MVP award.Looking up at the past players and champions who have played our game, to sit alongside (them) and have my name on the trophy is a pretty special moment, he said.Asked if his first year at Geelong could have gone any better, Dangerfield replied: I will let you know in a couple of weeks time.Yet he admitted it had been a seamless transition. Ive been very lucky to come to a wonderful football club, he said.Dangerfield said he would not barrack for either side in the SCG semi-final, despite his strong Crows history.I have friends at Adelaide obviously who Id love to see do well, he said.But this time of the year, you have to remove emotion because its about us and us winning.For us and me, its business - were here to win and whoever wins (on Saturday), thats the challenge for us. Authentic Duke Ejiofor Jersey . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. Authentic Jermaine Kelly Jersey . The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. http://www.cheaptexansjerseysauthentic.com/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Matching London 2012s Super Saturday four years on and in a different country was always going to be a tough task, but no hyperbole was required to call Britains blockbusting Brazilian sequel brilliant.It was Team GBs most successful day at these Games with three golds, four silvers and a bronze, and it saw the nation sitting firmly in third place in the rankings with a tally of 30 medals -- only 18 short of achieving the overall target with a week to go.Mo Farah took a dramatic gold again, too, defending his 10,000 metres title despite being tripped and falling in the 10th lap. He just didnt have anyone on the track and field team to share the top-step-on-the-podium experience this time, and that made this Super Saturday slimmed down for some.Jess Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford both struck gold in London and, with Farah, all three did so in the space of 44 wonderful minutes.This time around Ennis-Hill had to make do with silver, having missed out to a relatively new kid on the heptathlon block, Belgiums Nafissatou Thiam, and Rutherfords long jump medal was bronze.Im pretty emotional but these are happy tears, said deposed champion Ennis-Hill, who couldnt quite beat her rival by enough of a time margin in the final event, the 800m, to take the title. These two days have been really tough but Im really proud.I have to make a decision as to whether this is my last heptathlon or not but Im so proud of what I have achieved over the last few years.Rutherford was less pleased with his performance, a poor no-jump call partly being blamed. Ultimately I didnt jump long enough today, which is very difficult for me to take, he said after his longest effort of 8.29m was 11 centimetres short of American Jeff Hendersons winning mark.Ive just got to make do and move on from that, but Im pretty gutted.Ive won a lot [before] and today I havent won. Thats something Im not used to and something I have to deal with and figure out. Its not good enough in my eyes.When track and field -- the marquee sport -- hasnt shone the brightest of the bunch, the day was bound to take on a different hue. Authentic Jordan Thomas Jersey. And the disappointment of Katarina Johnson-Thompsons rivalry with Ennis-Hill fizzling out when she scored poorly in the javelin, ultimately slipping from third to sixth, didnt help matters.But that shouldnt detract from some other fabulous achievements in an Olympics that is rapidly becoming one of the finest for British firsts.On Saturday, cyclist Laura Trott became the first British female to win three titles at the Games after a world-record team pursuit victory; Farah took his tally to three Olympic track and field golds, which has never been done by a Briton before; the womens rowing eight silver was the nations first medal in the discipline.They were following in the footsteps of other athletes earlier in the week, such as Katherine Grainger and Sir Bradley Wiggins, whose medal collections are now unmatched by those representing the nation at the Olympics. Diving, trampolining and gymnastics have also recorded firsts.Saturday was super for other reasons, too: the rowing mens eight ended a 16-year wait for the title; Becky James keirin silver gave Team GB its fourth success from five track cycling events as the squads domination in the Velodrome continued; the mens 4x100m medley relay silver in the pool made these Games Britains most successful in swimming pool for more than a century.On top of that, Andy Murray made it through to the final of the mens singles tennis and Justin Rose -- who has already recorded a hole-in-one first for the Games -- led the golf.On pure medal comparisons, this probably wasnt Super Saturday II. In 2012, Team GB won six golds and a silver. Thats one fewer in total than this time round but with a lot more bling.Sequels have seldom been as good as the originals, but that doesnt mean they havent been worth watching. ' ' '
