Kingsbury to Leave Homan Team

Just read this article from TSN's morning mail. Thought I'd share it.

Best news possible for team Homan. He wasn't really any good as a shrink to the team and his coaching was limited anyway. They need to bring back their most successful coach or hire his son.

She became too big and arrogant to respect Earle as a coach. They don’t deserve him.

I'm wondering if this is a personal thought or is this fact. Just a question.

The last game he coached her, she called a time out. While Earle was coming, she remarked to her team with a smirk on her face , "I really don’t need him, I just want to tell him what I’m doing". Being miked, everybody heard her.

Don't assume that this is due to disrespect. Sometimes a timeout is called because it is not clear what the shot should be. But other times, a timeout is called to give the sweepers a rest before a big shot if they are fatigued, or just to make sure 100% that everyone understands the shot, and where the OK miss can be and where the miss would need to be.

Rarely does a team call a timeout, have no idea on what to call, and need the coach to give an answer. The coach is really there to help be a neutral party on whether A or B is a better shot. I think a good coach asks why you like a call, to make you be able to justify why it is a good shot. If you cant justify, then you should not call the shot.

I played in a pretty competitive event with a coach, and in the last end we called a timeout. Coach walks out and asks why in the hell did you need me to come out, the shot is obvious. My response was ice has been super heavy the last couple ends, we sweepers are tired, and an extra 90 second break before we sweep end to end for a shot for the game would be a welcome break. He agreed, we bsed for a minute, then he went on his way.

Thanks for that explanation curlky. I'd rather think your way than believe that Team Homan was ever disrespectful to Earl

Prior to getting her comeuppance at the Olympics (failure to qualify, tons of missed and incomplete shots)
Miss Homan was getting really cocky - and it showed to most viewers. Kinda ho-hum, everything was going great and she was untouchable - UNTIL THE OLYMPICS where it unravelled rapidly.
Carried on for a couple months at the cash slams - where Rachel & Co. couldn't win for losing. Finally got the ship righted at the last slam.
Perhaps they'll grow with a coach who can provide tactical feedback vs. a psyche coach like Adam.

Whatever they do - they're still the most formidable team in the country.

Jennifer Jones is a gamer but she'll be 44 tomorrow and won't have her backbone Officer in the lineup. She'll have to get used to Joss Peterman's style - and Peterman will have to get used to JJ. Could be a bit rough off the hop.

The next big threats have disbanded or reformed - ie. Carey & Val Sweeting. Sweeting coming out of Manitoba as Keri Einarson's 3rd. Carey still trying to find her way.

Jones has a spot pre-booked at STOH. Rachel has to win Ontario (75 to 80% favoured to do that) or she'll no doubt have a shot in the Scotties play-in game (again 75 to 85% favorites)

Next big threat could actually be this year's STOH winning 3rd from Manitoba - and her fresh new team of skips. Who knows?

Ah, it's only July and the bashing begins with Ajay's and M.L.'s resentful musings.

Can the other Jones idolizers be far behind?

Why does anyone read this Manitoba Legend person? His idolizing/stalking of Jennifer Jones is just maximum creepy. The rest of the time he's a major windbag bragging about himself.

I think he's the reason why there are so few people posting here now.
