Scott McDonald to Brier

So team Scott McDonald runs the table at the Ontario Tankard and knocks off Epping easily in the final. They will represent Ontario at their first visit to the Brier. Good luck and "Go Ontario".

Team Epping apparently still has a chance to qualify if the stars are aligned and some other teams help them out.

Maybe MacDonald's win is the start of a "new" Ontario dynasty. Glenn needs to pack it in. Scott Howard will never be a winning skip and Epping just can't seem to hold on to the brass ring.
MacDonald has been around for years back to junior days. His mother and brother would have been very proud!

Glenn has no reason to retire; he might not win every event but he still has the drive and has picked up more event wins than the younger Gushue has. He also has a tweaked lineup.

Not sure w/ Epping, still breaking in the new team is possible.

Yes it’s great to see a new team represent Ontario. It shows the depth of curling and also shows that when given the opportunity there are more “elite” teams than what we see on the slam series.

Wonder if Lainger or Benny get to the Brier as McDonald's "5th"?
I suspect they'll still be their as Vice-Chairmen of Standing Around.

Why would Benny be McDonald's 5th if his team could rep Alberta/Wildcard?

Sorry - my mistake. Benny is still in play. Just has to have Koe sneak past the new King of Alberta - Brendan Bottcher.

Lainger or Saville might be choices for McDonald - taking a ton of experience to the Brier.

ML. too far over his skis again.

According to the Canadian Press, Epping still has a Wild Card chance to make it to the Brier. If successful neither Laing or Savill would be eligible as a 5th for anybody.

And should Epping not be successful, would it not be more prudent for McDonald to select a curler who could Skip if necessary?* While both are world class in their current positions, they would be the first to admit Skipping is not for them.

As for "Benny", another senior moment perhaps, he's not eligible for a 5th yet simply because the Alberta Provincials don''t begin until the 6th. And if Koe were to lose, I question why any Alberta curler would be eligible as a 5th for an Ontario team.

* Jacobs has selected Horgan for his 5th.

Bottoms Up!!!

I think Epping is basically guaranteed a wild card either 1 or 2. Only Koe and Jacobs are ahead of him in the current CRTS. So if Bottcher goes through for Alberta it would be Koe 1 and Epping 2. If Koe takes Alberta it will be Epping 1 and Bottcher 2. If I am reading the CRTS correctly that is.

Scotty McDonald has gone from hinterland nobody to proteus rising - the next big threat to the Brier Monsters Club.

ie. Koe, Gushue, Jacobs, McEwen, Dunstone, Bottcher, Cotter, etc.

The top guns will be very wary of McDonald - mainly because he's already laid waste to fellow monsters Howard & Epping.

Wonder if John Morris still has an Ontario passport? Could serve as McDonald's 5th/consultant. Johnny Mo can also play most positions so if Laing, Epping, Camm, etc. aren't available - why not Morris?

McDonald has been knocking on the door of the Ontario Provincials since 2010. This season his team was invited to three Slam events, none of which proved to be noteworthy. So despite winning the Provincials he is unlikely to be invited to run with the big dogs in either the Players' or the Champions Cup both of which will be jam-packed with talent not only from Canada but from around the world.

Apparently there was a bullying incident at the Provincials. No sure who was involved or what the incident was but shameful.

Scott McDonald sits 12th overall on the Order of Merit YTD, which is how invites for the Players' Championship are handed out. They also won the Gatineau spiel which had a 5.76 SFM. There is a good chance that is strong enough to qualify them for Champions Cup.

McDonald was not handed any special invites. They qualified for the Grand Slams and are in good position to qualify for the last 2.

Qualifying cut-off for the Players' Championship is the Brier. McDonald will have to have a strong showing at the Brier to hold onto that 12th spot with a tight race of other teams close to them.

Here is a link to CBC report https://www.cbc.ca/sports/olympics/...cials-1.5007289

Let's face it, we all know that Homan is not an Ontario resident anymore and has been playing the system for 3 years now.

Hmmm, of course this would rear its head sooner or later. Curling Canada should have resolved this sooner.

EXACTLY

Curling Canada should have sorted this out. I'm not sure about bullying but just asking "Where do you LIVE"

I've asked this the last 2-3 years. Courtney "MOVED" to Ontario when you were not "supposed" to have out of province players. Same as Morris in BC, and many ,many others that CC turned the blind eye.

Homan lives in AB. Courtney lives in AB. You can't blame the outburst in the crowd that suggested the same. Living "on paper" vs where you sleep at night are totally different.

I've said this at least 5 times the last 2 years.... COME CLEAN.

Again, really like team Homan, however, there are rules. Supposedly for EVERYONE

I'm just here for the free trips!

Wow. Tell us your opinion on Olympic athletes and their "free trips" around the world. You seem to have some issue with funding athletes for competitions.

Reminder: As far as I can figure, you need the athletes in order for there to be a competition, right?

According to the CBC article the exemption is for full time students. So the two questions to be answered are, what is classified as a full time student and does Homan meet that definition? Apparently (right or wrong) Curling Canada says Homan is a full time student so therefore she is eligible to represent Ontario. Does yelling “Alberta” from a fan constitute bullying? That seems a bit of a stretch. It does show what Homan’s competitors (and Homan herself )think of her sportsmanship when neither parties think she should win the award , but, did it to prove a point.

Doesn't Gushue have more than one out of province player? Not saying anyone should be harassed for anything, but seems to be a double standard in this case. Personally I think the concept is dated and other avenues should be explored.
