Players championship

I noticed Lisa was throwing second rocks and Joanne was throwing lead. Any reason?

I think they are trying out to see if their game is different.

However, Rachel was light on a draw that saw Roth steal 3 and the win. Apparently this was the first time they had curled together as a team since the Olympics.

1 Did New Team Crocker qualify on points, or not enough above her commit, or was she a sponsors pick?


2 Any streaming?

3 With the Lisa/Joanne switch, what better time than an end of season meaningless spiel to try something new?

Classy Laura Crocker cruising along with a 4-3 lead vs EJ Kim, then suddenly gets rocked by a 5-BOMB.....

Usually this would signal another fatal loss for Ms. Crocker.

BUT NOT THIS TIME!

Classy Crocker got up off the 5-bom and took back 3 in the 7th, then stole 3 in the 8th FOR THE WIN.

Thought only Jennifer Jones engineered these types of comebacks.

Is Kendra Lilly now part of the full-time Crocker entourage?

With all due respect a Grand Slam is never meaningless let alone the Players' Championship! Every player would tell you if you could only win one Grand Slam this is the one to win. Now, I know Homan can't win top money in the bonus cup race, but a team of each gender this week has a chance to pocket $100,000+

Somewhat meaningless in a sense with the big picture next 4 year plan, one spiel won't make a difference in their standings. With the next big Olympic test so far away, it's a good time to try some new things to see if it makes the team better.

Lovely Laura Crocker just dropped a 5-BOMB on The Not So Mean Girls, 3rd end, now lead 6-1.
Perhaps Rachel and her handlers decided to put Lise on trial - having her throw 2nd stone - and fail - cuz she's nowhere near the hitting machine of big girls like Officer, Courtney, Peterman, etc.
I suspect this might be used against Lisa if Rachel thinks she needs to rebuild her front end. Who they can acquire at this point, I don't know. Weagle seems so embedded with Team Homan it would be severely strange to see another face on that team this year (or next)

Meanwhile, Laura Crocker seems to have hit the magic jackpot with Kendra Lilly at 3rd - Kendra can be a magnificent player and Laura, while never living up to her potential (so far) could have taken the magic elixir to confront the mean teams on the circuit (ie. Jones, Homan, Carey, Einarson, Scheidegger, etc.)

During this afternoon's draw Rob Faulds was whining on behalf of Edin losing their funding after 10 years of a free all expense paid ride to curl. Thank you Mike and Joan for very quickly saying too bad, welcome to curling in Canada where you have to beg for sponsorship every year to "help" pay the way. There are a few full time curlers in Canada but almost none that make an exclusive living at it. Most all have other real jobs.

i'll admit i'm confused. success is supposed to get funding not get it taken away. makes no sense

on the other hand i have absolutely zero sympathy for them. now you have to do things the way everyone else does. oh well. now they might actually have to other jobs too. what a disaster..not

Team Homan has been getting the snot beat outta them so far (3 lopsided losses)

but this afternoon should be different as she plays Jennifer Jones - and one thing about Homan is she's had a hard-on for Jones since Raytch was 15 or 16 and first started taking on the big girls.

JJ's record vs Homan isn't very good. One of the few teams Jones actually adjusts her game because of the fear of nuclear shot-making by opposition skip & 3rd. That said, Jones prolly still makes playoffs - and Homan doesn't!

Agree no sympathy. As my mother used to tell us kids, if you're looking for sympathy you'll find it in the dictionary between sh@t and syphilis.

Jones was hard-pressed not to laugh during her post-game interview w/ Husky Harris.

Kinda like FREE MONEY cuz Jones is barely curling 70% and she's unbeaten.

Key now is to avoid the only team that could probably administrate a severe beating to Team Jones - and thats the CyBorg from Sweden.

Anna may be slightly burned out but she's going like the dickens regardless of burn-out - she's still throwing out extremely high percentages and Jones won't be able to hold her down if they both advance to the final.

Jones will still get the biggest portion of the grub steak - she's tremendous in that regard!

I'm no sport psychologist, but it seems that Team Homan's pendulum has swung. The devastation at the Olys may have raked them in more ways than we know. What do they want? Do they feel drive to win, to achieve? Have they stopped "caring". Some immeasurable factor has dissipated from the ties that bind this team. They need a break. And maybe it will never come back. I haven't watched - but it has never seemed that they "loved" the game. They liked the win, the glory, and the fear they put in others. With that gone.. meh.

They loved instilling fear in other teams - even super teams like Jones, Middaugh, Lawton, Sweeting, McCarville, Fleury, Carey, Einarson, etc.

Now, they appear beset by the same fate that overcame Rowdy Ronda Rousey - in mixed martial arts; once unbeaten, feared and monsterous - but then thrashed severely in 2 consecutive big money matchups (once by Hollywood Holly Holm who nearly kicked Ronda's head off and then by a pudgy brazilian who beat Ronda senseless in under 45 sec. before the ref stopped the fight and possible death of Rousey)....

Rachel needs a re-set - but those are hard to come by in curling. Sponsorship committments will force them to show up for final tourney of the season - then next season they have to put some effort into winning their own Ontario provincial championships as they WERE NOT PROVIDED an exemption.

Can u spell LONG ROW TO HOE!

I've tried but it doesn't work. Very frustrating. I get 10 sports channels with TSN and sportsnet but no sportsnet now. Why not just give a link to watch instead of losing 99% of your viewers?

I am subscribed to all Sportsnet channels through Bell/MTS and could never get signed in, so I just messaged them....here is their live chat answer:

The event is on an overflow channel. Please be advised that content on overflow channels is only available to online subscribers and you would not have access if going through a TV provider

PURE BS

Ive tried but can't . I'm a full cable subscriber and can't watch. Why not put a link on curling zone under watch online so we can watch. Surely sportsnet wants more than 50 viewers!!

Here's a suggestion, if Sportsnet can't have curling on one of their 6 channels, let someone else broadcast.....even World Curling TV channel on youtube

and after I ranted on them and said all they were was a bunch of money grabbing scammers - they disconnected my chat.

So, I ranted back again - disconnected again.

so, everyone, do a live chat with them.

Last rant.....for today

For the love of God if you're going to buy the Slams so you get to broadcast them, then BROADCAST THEM. This BS of trying to get the online version which is IMPOSSIBLE to get sucks, just let someone else do it. Do you need Leafs or Tampa on all 6 or 7 channels? Just stream it if you can't or won't broadcast it live.
