Fremantle goalsneak Hayden Ballantyne says his rumoured rift with teammate Nat Fyfe was nothing but wrong speculation, while he also denied he asked for a trade away from the Dockers.Rumours surfaced last season that a host of Dockers players were unhappy with Fyfes leadership style, with Ballantyne apparently part of the clan.But Ballantyne flatly denied those claims on Wednesday.Theres a lot of speculation in Perth with footy players, and thats exactly what it was. There were no issues to resolve, Ballantyne said.It also emerged last year that Ballantyne had sought a trade to West Coast after failing to land a multi-year contract extension at the Dockers.But Ballantyne says he never wanted to leave the Dockers, claiming his manager was merely sussing out all available options.I didnt ask for that, no, Ballantyne said of the talk he wanted to head to arch rivals West Coast.(I was) open to look at all the possibilities for my football career.My manager does a great job, and he dealt with all the rubbish outside.For me, it didnt faze me in the slightest.Im happy here. Once all the dust settled, and Im staying as a Fremantle player, I was stoked.Its always been my mission to stay a Fremantle player for my whole career. Im as happy as hell.Ballantyne said he had a refreshing chat with coach Ross Lyon after the trade period.Once the dust settled, we laid everything out, Ballantyne said.I said, What do you need from me for 2017? And he was stoked with that.He said get your head down, bum up, and into pre-season.Ballantyne was an All-Australian in 2014, but he has struggled to recapture his best form since.The 29-year-old booted just 26 goals from 20 games last season, and just 15 goals the year before.It was a far cry from his 2014 campaign that yielded 49 goals.Ballantyne says Dockers players have been given the green light to play more instinctively in 2017.The club is hopeful the new style of play will help the team rebound from their horror 2016 campaign that yielded just four wins.Ballantyne suffered a fractured cheekbone last season, and he also broke his jaw in 2014.But the pocket rocket says hes not about to change his frenetic attack on the man and the ball any time soon.If I think about trying to protect myself in a game, opportunities are missed to lay a tackle or things like that, Ballantyne said.Theres a fair bit of metal in there now, so hopefully that helps.Luckily enough there hasnt been concussions or damage to my brain. Its just been bone damage, which heals quick enough. I wont be changing too much. Caleb Joseph Diamondbacks Jersey .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Andrew Chafin Jersey . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. http://www.diamondbackssale.com/diamondbacks-eduardo-escobar-jersey/ . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Zack Greinke Jersey . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. Jarrod Dyson Diamondbacks Jersey . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants big-bucks, revamped defense found a way to hold off the Dallas Cowboys in the Ben McAdoos debut as coach. Facing the New Orleans Saints on Sunday will show whether spending more than $100 million to help Steve Spagnuolos unit was cost effective.The Giants (1-0) arent going to be facing Dak Prescott, a rookie making his first NFL start.Its Drew Brees this week. The 37-year-old leads the league in passing and comes into the season with 10 consecutive years of passing for more than 4,000 yards, with no less than 4,870 in the last five, which includes three 5,000-yard campaigns.If those numbers dont impress the Giants, all they have to do is recall last year: Brees passed for 511 yards and tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in a 52-49 win.I dont even remember that, Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie quipped.He does, though.When you are playing a guy like that who has been doing it for a long time, you know he has a good arm and has some good receivers who can definitely take the top off a defenses, and you have guys who understand football, and the way he throws and gets it out quick, Rogers-Cromartie said. Man, its going to be tough.Its also going to be tougher for Brees. He will be seeing a lot of new faces.Defensive tackle Damon Harrison and end Olivier Vernon are new, and end Jason Pierre-Paul did not play last year because of his fireworks accident.Middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard is new, as are cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple, safeties Darian Thompson and Nat Berhe, who was on injured reserve last year.I would say while its the same scheme for the most part, Steve Spagnuolo, theres a lot of good players over there that seem to be playing really well, Brees said. I dont really look at last year as any type of indication as to how this is going to go. I think theyre much improved. Theyre playing really well right now. I have a lot of respect for coach Spagnuolo and his scheme. Im sure theyre going to be ready for us. We need to make sure were ready for them.New Orleans put up 34 points last week as Brees passed for 423 yards and four touchdowns. The Giants edged Dallas 20-19.SECONDARY CONCERNS: With Delvin Breaux going out for six to eight weeks with a broken leg, the Saints are relying on a trio of cornerbacks with only one regular-season game to their name: starter P.J. Williams and reseerves DeVante Harris and Ken Crawley.dddddddddddd However, a pair of recently acquired veterans could suit up in New York -- Sterling Moore and B.W. Webb, who both practiced this week. Moore knows the Giants well from playing three seasons in the NFC East with the Cowboys (2012-2014). He also played against the Giants last season with Tampa Bay.GIANTS DEFENSIVE BACKS: The Giants limited Prescott to 227 yards passing and no touchdowns. His longest pass was 21 yards.I feel like we have guys that can match up, said Janoris Jenkins, who held Dez Bryant to one catch for 8 yards. We have Eli Apple and DRC. We can match up all the way around the board with anybody as long as we play within the system and play within the scheme.Jenkins said Brees is a `blast from the past, noting he throws deep and works the hash marks most of the time.POUND IT: Running backs Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen combined for 113 yards on 24 carries in the opener for New York. Expect them to get the ball more after seeing the Saints give up 167 yards on 26 carries in the loss to the Raiders.MORE BREES: Brees looks as good at 37 as he did at 27, if not better. Hes coming off his 14th career 400-yard game, which tied him for first for such single-game production with Peyton Manning in NFL history. His touchdowns included a thread-the-needle throw over the middle to Brandin Cooks, and a Saints-record 98-yarder to Cooks with a pass down the left sideline. That one was so well-timed the speedy receiver never seemed to break stride. With 36 yards passing, Brees will move into third in that category, eclipsing Dan Marinos 61,361 yards.BACK TO NORMAL: Giants receiver Victor Cruz returned in style from a series of injuries, scoring the winning touchdown in his first game since October 2014. This will be his first home game since that season.The only thing that is indicative of things being back to normal is you guys not asking me about my body anymore, Cruz said, and asking me about how I am feeling. But yeah, for the most part it just feels like business as usual, getting out there, playing football again and worrying about our next opponent.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in New Orleans contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
