Lance Franklins leadership of Sydneys young and inexperienced AFL forward line is earning plenty of gratitude from his eager apprentices.At age 29 and with 241 games and 773 goals to his name Franklin is far and away the most senior and proven member of the second-placed Swans forward half.He has more games and goals combined than all of the other regular members of the Swans attack, most of whom are not specialist forwards.That list includes a trio of 20-year-olds in first-year seniors Tom Papley (14 games, 19 goals) and George Hewett (18, 13) and second-year star Isaac Heeney (32, 40).Xavier Richards, 23 (6, 9) has been another recent youthful addition to the attack end, with Gary Rohan 25, (73, 57) adding x factor impact to the forward line.All have benefited from the towering presence of Franklin, who is second in the Coleman Medal race on 70 goals, three behind West Coast spearhead Josh Kennedy.Hewett says Franklins influence extends well beyond hitting the scoreboard.Hes a very talented player, but I just think his leadership has been huge this year, especially because weve got such a young forward line, Hewett said.Hes been massive in that perspective and hes been really good this year.Franklin has volunteered advice as well as being asked for tips from his young accomplices.Hes been very good to us young boys and especially to me, Hewett said.Hes probably the best bloke to give you information because hes done it all, so hes been awesome.Hes given me more on-field support, which is keeping it simple and just be consistent.Hewett is still learning his craft as a forward having been recruited by Sydney as a midfielder.As a forward youve got to earn the footy a bit more. Youve got to do a lot more running for your touches, Hewett said.Another recent convert to the forward line is Richards, the younger brother of retiring fullback Ted Richards, who has kicked nine goals in four games this season, after playing primarily as a defender until mid-season.He (Xavier Richards) is quite fit and quick and he brings that element of surprise as well, Hewett said.Hewett is one of seven Swans debutants this season, but he pointed out some like defenders Zak Jones, Allir Allir and himself were all in their third year at the club.Weve all had to do a mini apprenticeship in the reserves, Hewett said.You have to work hard and earn your spot and once you do you feel confident playing senior footy.He is poised this weekend to play his first game in Tasmania against a North Melbourne side including Brent Harvey, who made his debut before Hewett turned one-year-old. Fake Yeezy . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Fake Shoes Outlet . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. https://www.fakeshoesonline.com/ . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Fake Shoes Discount . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. Fake Jordan Shoes . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. Nobody likes losing. Even the most gracious among us still burns a little inside when she comes up on the wrong side of a final score. But not all losses are the same. Letting your kid beat you in H-O-R-S-E every once in a while only mildly stings. A good, solid clobbering?when you were vastly outplayed can sometimes be easy to brush off. Heck, a moral victory against a heavy favorite might even send you out for some celebratory ice cream post-defeat.But there are some losses that leave a pit in your stomach for days. Losses that feel like theyll stick with you forever. Not your run-of-the-mill buzzer-beaters or the times you came up short on an opponents otherworldly play. Nah, these are the real dark and twisty losses -- not just that you lost, but the way you lost.Take, for instance, the San Francisco Giants loss on Saturday night. With the game tied 6-6 in the 10th inning, San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla tripped midpitch, stumbling down the front of the mound and giving the Padres a walk-off balk win. An extra-innings contest decided by a spike caught in the dirt? Just brutal. In fact, a walk-off balk is probably the worst possible way to lose a baseball game.Which got me thinking: What are the absolute worst ways to lose? And what are some of the most unfortunate losses weve seen in recent years?I think the most obvious of all crushing losses has to be the Chris Webber game. You all know how it went. With Michigan down 73-71 in the final seconds of the 1993 NCAA title game, Webber attempted to call timeout but his team had none remaining, and the ensuing technical foul clinched the win for UNC. The Tar Heels may have won anyway, but Webber will forever wonder.But lets get to something a little more recent. Just last week, in fact, when the USGA bungled the handling of a penalty in the U.S. Womens Open. Brittany Lang and Anna Nordqvist were tied on the second hole of a three-hole aggregate playoff when Nordqvist disrupted one or two tiny grains of sand, grounding her club in a fairway bunker. USGA officials didnt learn of the infraction until later during the hole -- and only due to super slo-mo, zoomed-in replays shown by high-definition television cameras. Nordqvist wasnt informed of the two-stroke penalty she received until after shed hit her third shot on the final hole, but Lang was told before she hit her third shot.The two were still tied when the penalty strokes were applied, so there are no guarantees that Nordqvist would have come back to win it if she had been alerted sooner. But she would have had the opportunity to play aggressively on the final hole, and Lang likely wouldnt have elected to hit a conservative shot with a sand wedge instead of going for birdie with the lob wedge she had initially grabbed. It was a terribly unfair way for Nordqvist to lose, and likely a somewhat unsatisfying victory for Lang (especially after USGA President Diana Murphy repeatedly called her Bethany, instead of Brittany, duuring the trophy presentation).ddddddddddddLosing because of a rules violation like that might be even worse than a walk-off balk. Ill never forget the story of high school pole vaulter Robin Laird. In 2010, her successful vault in the final event of the night won her team the league championship, but her score was disqualified and the title was lost because she was wearing a friendship bracelet. The opposing teams coach, Mike Knowles, pointed out the tiny string bracelet on Lairds wrist after the winning jump was made, ensuring that the meet would be decided not by merit, but by a technicality.Its unfortunate for the young lady, said Knowles, whose team won after he reported Lairds jewelry infraction. But youve got to teach the kids that rules are rules.Id argue teaching good sportsmanship is even more important.Teams have suffered heartbreaking losses because their fans prematurely celebrated, because a set of replacement refs fouled things up, and because no one really knows what the hell constitutes a catch in the NFL. Teams have ended up on the losing side of things because of a terribly ill-timed face-mask penalty, a lack of discipline, and celebrating before crossing the finish line.All terrible ways to lose a game, to be sure. And the worst part? Theyre all caught on tape, to be replayed over and over again. Most of those unfortunate athletes seemed to take their failures in stride. After all, were told that terrible losses can make for good character building -- you know, learning to lose gracefully and all that.Not all of us are cut out for that losing gracefully stuff, though. After more than 30 years on this earth, Ive sort of given up on it. Some of us are destined to throw bats at rec league softball games, yell at refs making eight bucks an hour, and agonize for years over a late interception that cost your team a playoff win in flag football.All Ill say is, thank goodness my losses never make the Not Top 10.***Ryen Russillo joins this weeks Thats What She Said podcast to talk about the radio balancing act of being interesting but also authentic, opinionated but genuine. I ask him what its like to run into athletes hes been critical of on the air and which pros hes got a beef with.
