I don't know what it was that Dan Raphael brought to the table, but he got the best out of the Chinese teams ... and now his mojo is showing success in the Czech Republic.

Without Raphael, the Chinese have floundered. Perhaps their best move woud be to grovel and beg him to come back.

Lots here I don't really understand:

Why would China want the coach to move to China? The teams will be living in Canada from September through January. Insisting that the coach relocate to China will limit the options significantly.

If they want off season training, they have lots of great athletic trainers. If they want somebody to build some depth at home, it should be a different job than the head coach.

Why leave Lorne Hamblin? Is Lorne not willing to totally commit his life to the job? That would be understandable if the farm is getting in the way.

So I am confused. Never mind me, I am often confused. I suspect that they will steal Derek Brown away from us in the USA, but that is just a guess.

If Canada isn't teaching other countries how to curl, how are we going to get better? Look at women's hockey - maybe that sport will be taken out of the Olympics because there's only 2 good countries. I want curling to remain in the Olympics.

OMG, I sincerely hope you're kidding. What a narrow minded view. Here's another narrow minded view. When another country wins gold, thank a Canadian.

I would actually enjoy a list of when other countries have won a World Championship with a Canadian Coach.

However, I disagree strongly with the sentiment that Canada should be credited when another country wins. Sharing knowledge doesn't mean we lose it. At worst, we are competing with equals in these situations. If we lose and they win, the other country's athletes deserve 100% of the credit, and we as Canadians should tip our caps in acknowledgement.

I also disagree strongly with the sentiment that we shouldn't share our knowledge, especially if only for fear of losing. The game must grow globally. This is the reason our sport is in the Olympics, after all. Again, if we're the best, our athletes should be able prove it year in and year out. Sometimes, we're not the best. In particular, it's been a long time since we've been the best at the Women's level, and I don't think this can be blamed at all on coaching.

Finally, Scotland, Sweden, and to a slightly lesser extent Norway have had significant successes at the World level over the history of the game. And I'm fairly certain that none of that had to do with Canadian coaching. So trust me - I don't think that Canadian coaches have any golden secrets that we're hiding away from the World. We've been beaten plenty of times, and it will happen again, as the world is full of great athletes!
