Coach Alan Richardson has named Jarryn Geary, David Armitage and Jack Steven as potential leadership replacements after St Kilda AFL legend Nick Riewoldts likely move to hand over the captaincy at the end of this season.The AFLs longest-serving skipper told the Nine Network this week he expected this season would be his last in charge of the Saints, even though it would leave him agonisingly short of a record.I think it is time, he said.I certainly hope between now and the rest of the year someone puts their hand up and takes the job next year.Riewoldt will edge ahead of the late Ted Whitten in third place on the list of all-time games played as an AFL captain when he leads St Kilda for the 213rd time against Essendon on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.He will be on 220 games if he plays every match for the rest of the season, six behind Carltons Steve Kernahan and four short of the Bombers Dick Reynolds.Richardson said Riewoldts decision was a sign of his incredible selflessness.He embraces the role and hes as impressive a leader as Ive ever worked with, he told reporters on Friday.The reality is that its probably getting to that time where we need someone else to come through.It would be great for that leader to have Nick at least for another year to work with him so I think something like that will happen.I think he would be disappointed if we hadnt identified someone for 2017 to be our skipper.Richardson said Geary, Armitage and Steven had each shown good leadership when filling in.He also admitted he was not sure when young forward Paddy McCartin would be medically cleared to play again, although it would be this year.Richardson pointed out the shaken Saint had passed the concussion test that would have allowed him to resume last weekend against Gold Coast.All the initial tests are positive. Some of the external tests with neurologists are ongoing, but hes heading in a positive direction, Richardson said.Well be a bit more cautious given its his third one (concussion).Im not sure when Paddy will be back. We think it will be much sooner rather than later and he will play significant footy for us this year. Cheap College Jerseys .

Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Authentic . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. The irony would be delicious if it werent so frustrating for those who had hoped to watch Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber slug it out for the prestigious year-end WTA No. 1 ranking at the WTA Finals Singapore, which starts Sunday.Since Williams is?out of the picture with a shoulder injury, the substitute down-to-the-wire battle is the one between Svetlana Kuznetsova and Johanna Konta?for the eighth and final place in the WTA Finals singles field.The draw for the round-robin portion already has been made, with either Kuznetsova or Konta destined to join the White Group. Kuznetsova must successfully defend her Kremlin Cup title -- she has reached Sundays final in Moscow -- in order to inch ahead of Konta as the No. 8 qualifier.However it turns out, the opportunity offered by the WTA Finals is very different for each woman involved. In fact, analyzing the field on the basis of whats at stake is always a nice alternative to traditional bracketology, so lets go ahead with it:Red GroupWTA No. 1 Angelique Kerber (59-15 in singles, three titles): Kerbers main task after she won the Australian Open in January and declared that shed fulfilled a lifelong dream at age 28 was to demonstrate that realizing her goal didnt leave her sated. She then went 1-1 in two more Grand Slam finals and is guaranteed the year-end No. 1 ranking. So the short and sweet answer to Whats at stake? for Kerber is: nothing much. Kerber has played a lot of tennis this year, and her group includes two rally-and-retrieve specialists. Singapore has been disappointing for her; she is 2-7 in three appearances and has never survived the round-robin portion. Add it up, and its easy to see why she might just mail it in and accept accolades for a great year.No. 4 Simona Halep (44-16, three titles): She won as many titles as Kerber in 2016, and two of them (Montreal and Madrid) were high-value tournaments. But the 25-year old Romanian has yet to win a major or establish herself as a true elite, which tells us much about Haleps ongoing struggle with confidence in big moments at big events. A French Open finalist in 2014, she hasnt done anything comparable since. In 2014 in Singapore, Halep crushed No. 1 Serena Williams 6-0, 6-2 in round-robin play but then lost to Williams by a nearly identical score in the final. A win in Singapore may not resonate as powerfully as a triumph at a Grand Slam event, but it would be a start.No. 7 Madison Keys (46-15, one title): Just 21, Keys is a debutante at the WTA Finals. A decent performance (reaching the knockout semifinals) in Singapore would cap a year of solid progress and set Keys up nicely for 2017. But with a win or a runner-up finish, she would be telling the world that shes ready to make a big push to occupy the vacuum that Serena Williams is bound to leave eventually. Its especially important for Keys American audience.No. 8 Dominika Cibulkova (50-19, three titles): Cibulkova lost the Australian Open final to Li Na in 2014. The 5-foot-3, 27-year-old dynamo from Bratislava, Slovakkia, tailed off after that high point, but she has rebounded beautifully in 2016.dddddddddddd Shes won as many titles in 2016 as anyone in the field, even though her year was interrupted in midsummer by the pleasant distraction of her wedding. A good showing in Singapore would leave Cibulkova in a position to earn a high seed and make another run at a major final in Melbourne.White GroupNo. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska (51-16, three titles): Shes the defending champion in Singapore, but shes also the first (and only) champion who hoisted the trophy despite having won just one round-robin match. Thats an asterisk Radwanska could wipe away if she has another great tournament, making it to the final or better. An excellent tournament also will make it easier for the former Wimbledon finalist to hang around near the top, awaiting her opportunity for another shot at Grand Slam glory -- especially if Serena Williams is out of the picture.No. 5 Karolina Pliskova (42-20, two titles): She knocked out Venus and Serena Williams en route to the US Open final, which made Pliskova the talk of the town even after she lost the championship match to Kerber. Pliskovas game suffered after those outstanding achievements. The 6-foot-1, 24-year-old Czech needs to show that she didnt just have a career fortnight with that big serve and first-strike forehand. Pliskova could be Madison Keys generational rival. A great way to move toward that would be for both women to make the semis.No. 6 Garbine Muguruza (34-18, one title): The fact that the only title Muguruza won this year was a Grand Slam (the French Open) tells you much about the 23-year-old Spanish pro. Despite her previous experience as a Grand Slam finalist (she lost the 2015 Wimbledon final to Serena Williams), she doesnt seem capable of focusing and playing calm, determined tennis on a day-to-day basis. She salvaged a poor fall last year by making the semis in Singapore and finds herself in the same position this year. Her reputation as a competitor would benefit from a strong showing.In contention for final spot in White GroupNo. 9 Svetlana Kuznetsova (*39-20, one title): The free-spirited, philosophical Russian has two Grand Slam titles. Her motivation and confidence have always fluctuated, but at 31 she seems to be in the midst of a late-career surge and enjoying every moment of it. The payoff for her would be vindication in what might be a farewell tour.* Kuznetsova stats dont include in-progress Kremlin Cup.No. 10 Johanna Konta (44-21, one title): Even if she is nudged out on the final day of the regular WTA Tour season by Kuznetsova, Konta has been a revelation. The aggressive 25-year-old newcomer to the WTA top 10 was ranked No. 150 at the end of 2014. Now shes the first female British player to make the top 10 in over 30 years. Shes living the dream, and the only thing at stake for her is validation of her new status.
