                                      Nico Rosberg was not expecting to be backed into rival cars by Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton at the championship-decider in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. Dale Hunter Jersey .In one last role of the dice, race leader Hamilton slowed his pace so that Rosberg would come under pressure from Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen in the final laps of the race. If Rosberg had dropped to fourth, a victory would have secured Hamilton the title, but ultimately the German held on to finish second 0.4s behind Hamilton and 0.4s ahead of Vettel.I wasnt expecting it, Rosberg said. Maybe I was a bit na?ve but I didnt expect it.Mercedes is yet to decide how to react to Hamiltons tactics after the defending champion disobeyed a series of radio calls from the pit wall telling him to up his pace. Even though Hamiltons driving could have cost Rosberg the title, the newly-crowned champion said he understands his teammates actions.It is not something we need to discuss because it is really easy to understand the teams side as we do something a certain way all year and we dont change it for one race. At the same time you can understand the side from Lewis because we are out their fighting as drivers and you can understand that he wants to try something. We will just leave it at that and dont need to discuss it.Rosberg could afford to lose one place to Vettel, which would have allowed the Ferrari to put pressure on Hamilton, but he said he did not want to give the position away for fear of Verstappen taking advantage.I had Sebastian Vettel behind so I wanted to try to hold on to second because once I drop one place to avoid a mess in front I knew Verstappen would be right behind so I didnt want that and him right behind him either.Rosberg also confirmed that there was no way to pass Hamilton, even when he was driving at a reduced pace.I couldnt, I was trying at times, but Lewis was driving really well. He pushed flatout from turn 21 all the way through the first sector and halfway through the second sector and that is where you overtake so I was never getting close enough.He has the same car as me so in fast corners there was no way for me to get past and then he backed off in the next part where you cant overtake. There was no way for me. Rod Langway Jersey . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Alex Chiasson Jersey . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. http:///...-john-carlson-jersey . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III will turn to his eight automatic qualifiers for advice on his wild cards as the United States seek to avoid an unprecedented fourth straight defeat at Hazeltine.Patrick Reeds victory in the first FedEx Cup playoff event on Sunday secured his place on the team alongside Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker and Zach Johnson.And those players will now have a major say in who joins them on the plane to Minnesota, mirroring the approach taken by the last victorious US Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger in 2008.Its time for these eight to take ownership of this team and help us pick four more, said 2012 skipper Love, who will name three wild cards on Sep. 12 and his final one after the Tour Championship in Atlanta, just five days before the 41st Ryder Cup starts.Weve talked a lot to the guys that played for Paul and in fact I was helping my son clean out his truck the other day and I found Paul Azingers book in his truck.Paul has been a great help. He was successful. Theres guys that played for him like Phil Mickelson that know what went on. In 2012 I went down the list with everybody that made it on points and said, What do you think? Who do you like? Who do you think you would pair well with?Golf is different than other sports. [The] mental side of it is huge. If they go in there believing in what we are telling them, that they have the best team, and that they are ready to go, then thhey are going to play well. Capitals Jerseys China. We dont want to start off with any question marks.Its their team. If Patrick Reed says I want you to pick this guy and we wont lose a match, were going to take that into account.Love, whose side led 10-4 before losing to a brilliant European fightback at Medinah in 2012, believes two or three of his wild cards are going to be easy, with the likes of Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk and Rickie Fowler firmly in contention, despite Fowler failing to convert a 54-hole lead for the fourth time on Sunday.But he admits the timing of the process will lead to an awkward period between those first selections and the final one, a change brought about after Billy Horschel won the final two playoff events and overall FedEx Cup title in 2014 -- but only after the team had been selected.The last guy is going to be hanging out there until the end and if you have it down to three guys going into the Tour Championship, what do you say to these players? Love added.Handling that last one is new territory for us. Its going to be an interesting week for sure. A lot of pressure on two guys, three guys, going into the Tour Championship. Not only are they playing for the FedEx Cup and for a lot of money, trying to win the last tournament of the year, but they have got this Ryder Cup thing hanging over them. So its going to be fun.
