You know..I have heard more than once about other curlers not particularly liking the martin rink. It is well known that Nedohin and Ferbey dont like them and apparently Savill and Laing dont either . Koe overlooked Morris completely when selecting thirds in the all star skins game ..not sure if that was something personal or not

It just doesnt seem to me like they are very well liked..maybe I am just seeing things wrong

A berth into the trials finals has a funny way of making people suddenly like 3 other players

Totally agree. They forced other teams to be fully committed and you don't have to like them, just respect them. Being in AB... I've watched Randy take the game to a new level till 06... then Kevin took it even higher.

Actually, I think Kevin and the Howards took it to a new level... and then they boycotted. Then Nedohin took over the shot making.
The olympics, and the committment to get there,has made curling what it is today.

Morris play third for cotter? Shake your heads. Morris would skip that team and either Gunner or Griffiths would go bye-bye.

Imagination everywhere but O(N the Ice

and here I thought most curlers..
and in particular posters on this site were so enthrenched in their same old ideas that we would never see but 20 posts a day by nothing better to do Legend in his journalist Mind...

its like reading these posts is Travel Unlimited.. Mark Nichols uprooting his Life again to go to Alberta..not bl**dy likely..

John Morris wants ONE thing to SKIP..he tried for 7 years to make Martin agree with him and he's finally going to to try and form his own Team ( *snicker )

I just think its a bit funny that he believes because he was successful in Juniors that he can run in parallel with the best in the world.
Good Luck John...its all Pure Ego and you will probably even go back to breaking brooms..

Good Luck to Team Martin.. this sure was Loyalty in spades right on the brink of Trials..
I bet KMart gets his form back post surgery and post Mouth Mo.. to do better with a Third that knows /DOES his Job..

05 olympic trials:


Skip W L
Brad Gushue 8 1
Jeff Stoughton 7 2
John Morris 6 3
Glenn Howard 5 4
Pat Ryan 5 4
Kevin Martin 4 5
Randy Ferbey 4 5
Shawn Adams 3 6
Mark Dacey 3 6
Jay Peachey 0 9

No, John Morris hasn't had any success as a skip since juniors. I'm not even mentioning the Brier final.

This is crazy. You can not like him because he has a temper that he didn't control well when he was younger, but you have to acknowledge ability and accomplishment.

This post is so reminiscent of UpYurKIlt and several words capitalized for no apparent reason.

What do you mean go back to breaking brooms, did he ever stop? He threw a mic against the boards during the Brier. Brooms, mics, it's still temper tantrums. I think this move makes the Martin team better, altho not necessarily stronger because at the very least it takes the personality conflict away, for now.

I really hope the rumours of The hoice being Brad Gushue are just that..rumours. The guy finally has a team on his hands that could be really, really good if they were given time to grow. Leaving those young guys stranded at this point would also be a really horrible thing to do

lighten up on him ... i have seen all of the guys ready to spit nickels .. except ulsrud and a couple of others ... in a team sport if you miss there is huge pressure that you let the others down .. and it gets worse as you get closer to last rock ... in big games our lead would say " i did my part " and 4 rocks later id say the same .... we were mighty happen to be done and really glad not to be shooting the next 4 .. we had a great 3rd and skip and they usually came thru ... we werent upset if they missed cause its a team sport ..

as casey stengl said .. show me a good loser ...etc

gotta jet ... phone ringing , hopefully its kevin ....

Anyone who suggests Morris can't skip an elite team is certainly forgetting his past. Before he joined forces with Martin, there was a 3 year stretch where he was a Top 5 ranked team when he had Koe at 3rd and Kennedy and Paul Moffatt.

After learning for 7 years from Martin, Morris will be ready to skip his own team again, and any team he might take over leading to the Trials becomes that much stronger with him on board.

Good post by Gerry. We might never get the real inside story for Morris departing for years. Right now its a lot of sports clichés and political correctness.

Morris is a proven, capable skip. His pre-Martin record attests to that. If he is returning to the tee, he'll be one again. Yes, he has a fiery temperament that could stand some maturing. But keep in mind that successful skips need a little fire in their belly.

Martin and Glenn Howard are excellent examples of someone who is in control but burning to win inside. If Morris has learned this he'll be a major force. If not, only another talented player who wins some but never reaches full potential (think Paul Goswell here).

Only time will tell. But it will be interesting to watch.

So, it looks like interested people will have to wait for the personnel mysteries to sort themselves out. Oh well, plenty more time for speculation though!
