Sydney are wary of the danger posed by a Port Adelaide side planning to throw plenty of tall-forward timber at the AFLs meanest defence.The Swans will look to consolidate a top-four spot in their SCG clash, while Port have only a mathematical hope of making the finals, being three wins off eighth spot with four rounds to go.Sydney have won their past four contests against Port.Both teams last week won by close to 100 points.They are a very dangerous side, Swans forward Gary Rohan told AAP.Kenny (Port coach Ken Hinkley) is going to have them all pumped up ready to go.We just beat them the last time so they will probably have that in the back of their mind.Port will have 202cm Charlie Dixon back to add height and menace to what is potentially an imposing forward line.He will line up with 197cm John Butcher and 199cm Justin Westhoff, who will play his 200th AFL game.Dixon, the third-highest Port goalkicker this year with 30, missed the past two games with an ankle injury, but was named in the side and travelled to Sydney and will play barring any late setback.Its nearly the first time for the year weve actually got a couple of fit tall forwards with Hof to be out there running around together, Hinkley said.Were interested to see what happens. Its probably been our desire to have more of that.We havent actually been able to do that as often as we would like either through form or through injury.Clearly up forward, its a much bigger assignment for the opposition backs when you have 197 and 202 and 200 (centimetre players) in your front half.Youve got to put people on them that can control them in the air and the good thing about our three talls is they are all quite agile at ground level, so it does cause them some structural issues, I imagine.He backed Jackson Trengrove to hold his own against Sydneys taller but inexperienced ruck duo of Sam Naismith and Toby Nankervis.Air Max 270 Hot Punch Black .

"I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement.IRVING, Texas -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell isnt saying whether hes optimistic that San Diego and Oakland can keep their teams, while Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay considers both franchises all but gone.Dean Spanos of the Chargers and the Raiders Mark Davis werent talking at the NFL owners meeting Wednesday in the Dallas area. And no new specifics were revealed by Goodell a day after city and county officials in Oakland agreed to open negotiations with an investment group on a $1.3 billion plan for a new stadium.As you know, these issues have been going on for an awful long time, Goodell said. The challenges of getting stadiums built is something that weve worked very hard on. We have not made great progress in Oakland and San Diego. There is not a stadium proposal on the table that we think addresses the long-term issues of the clubs and the communities.The Chargers face a Jan. 15 deadline to decide whether to join the Rams in Los Angeles, part of a deal struck almost a year ago when owners agreed to let the Rams leave St. Louis. A Chargers-written ballot measure asking for $1.15 billion in increased hotel taxes to help fund a new downtown stadium was soundly defeated last month.Earlier this year, Davis said he was committed to moving the Raiders to Las Vegas, where a $1.9 billion stadium project has been approved. He declined to comment Wednesday when asked by The Associated Press about the vote a day earlier in Oakland.The Raiders will have from the end of their season, which will likely include their first trip to the playoffs since 2002, until Feb. 15 to apply for relocation. Irsay didnt offer any encouraging words for San Diego or Oakland.I think that there is at this point really no reason for optimism in either market for the Chargers and Raiders right now, Irsay said. Well see what happens. Thats the way it appears to be going with the year ending here.Irsay said it would be fruitless to extend the deadline facing the Chargers on their Los Angeles decision. He suggested that Spanos and Rams owner Stan Kroenke would reach an agreement to share Kroenkes new stadium in Inglewood.You know this process has been going on for a very, very long time in San Diego, Irsay said. Deans going to need to make a decision on whats best for the CChargers and go forward.dddddddddddd I know as owners we all felt two teams could be supported in Los Angeles, unquestionably.Goodell said the NFL was still committed to keeping the teams in their respective cities, a point he said he reiterated with San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Tuesday.But ultimately its for the community to decide, Goodell said. We have worked to try to get the referendum passed. And well continue to work with the local officials. But ultimately, they have to determine what it is they want to do in the community, what it is that can work for the community and the team.Among other issues Goodell addressed:-The salary cap will increase at least another $10 million for the fourth year in a row, which Goodell said was a sign that the labor deal reached in 2011 was working. This is healthy for us, Goodell said. We should continue to find ways to continue to extend that and make sure that we address things that we think we could make better.When the NFL and the players union did a long-term deal with no opt-out clause, the idea was to help drive up revenues, which in turn makes the cap rise. The more the cap rises the more cash teams have to spend on players.Had there been an opt-out clause, as previous collective bargaining agreements had, a lockout or strike scenario would have been possible during the contract.Goodell mentioned the league is interested in an extension of the CBA. Its unlikely the union would favor anything short of negotiations on a new deal in which both sides could address any perceived shortcomings in the current agreement.-The NFL will experiment with the number of advertisements in TV breaks during Week 16 games as it continues to evaluate a decline in ratings this season. The changes are not expected to reduce the time for ads, but perhaps the number of ads in a break and how many breaks there are. Were evaluating every aspect of the game presentation on television, on media platforms and also in stadiums, Goodell said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler ' ' '
