Canada Cup - Curling Canada

a statement from Curling Canada:



Statement on Canada Cup men’s final timing issue

After an internal review, it has been determined that during the fifth end of the men’s final of the Canada Cup on Sunday in Estevan, Sask., there was an officiating mistake that resulted in Kevin Koe’s team being told its final delivery was being pulled from play.

The communication to Team Koe took place while the stone was progressing down the sheet, potentially resulting in a communication lapse between vice-skip B.J. Neufeld and the sweepers. That communication to the team was the result of incorrect timing a few moments earlier. The team clearly called for its 30-second clock-stop with 11 seconds showing on the clock, but the clock was allowed to run down to two seconds before stopping, and was never reset to 11 seconds. The team should have had 41 seconds available in total (11 seconds on the clock plus the 30-second clock-stop) to deliver its final stone, and it took approximately 36 seconds, meaning the stone was delivered legally within the time that should have been allowed.

We want to give our athletes the best possible on-ice environment in which to show their talents, and we will continue to work with our on- and off-ice officials, and review all processes with regards to timing, to ensure this mistake isn’t repeated in the future.

The timing system used in the Canada Cup was a test, but the standard 38-minute full-game timing system will be used for all Canadian and world championship events.

Missing paragraph

Curling Canada left off the apology.

"Moreover, we apologize to all the players, officials, curling fans and of course our faithful viewers who watch the commercials and support the products of our patient sponsors, for putting up with this farce of a time test."

"We pledge to think things through much more carefully in the future, and foresee the problems that will arise from us trying to tinker with the sport to appease the broadcasters."

Signed,

I can't believe we ever thought timed ends would be better for ANYONE in the game, and thank you in advance for forgiveness.......until the next time.

you know what makes this timing rule even more ridiculous?. they introduced the 5 rock rule, which will make ends more complicated and therefor decisions harder to come by. then they introduce the timing rule which is intended to speed the game up.

make up your ****ing mind

you cant tell introduce a rule that makes ends more messy and complicated then tell them to hurry up. it'll lead to rushed decisions and more mistakes..but, like glenn said. maybe thats what they want

After 5 more attempts to login, I'd almost think "they're" "conspiracy theorist" are trying to to keep us from replying.

I've come to the conclusion that CC and whomever is giving them input and suggestions, are either plain stupid, or worse, being influenced by those that are beyond plain stupid.


Again, there may be another theory involved, money and broadcasters......discuss.

To shorten games I think they should all be 8 end games. We see lots of this game, is exciting and long enough. Timed ends pure crap.

I believe the per-end timing was due to also be tried at the Continental Cup, I wonder if that’s changed now in light of this.

Wonder about that, too. Hope so. Especially with the new Team Scrambles, another new thing for the curlers to try out.
