Warren Hansen supports 8 ends

In the latest issue of the Curling News, Warren (former senior executive at Curling Canada) is now supportive of 8 ends in all curling championships. This is good news as 8 ends vs 10 ends is more practical for television broadcasters and more appealing to younger viewers. The main concern is that a team would have fewer ends to get back in the game after a bad start.

A solution could be a Modified Blank End Rule : You can only blank and retain last rock advantage when you are behind in the score

Another more effectice option is the team behind in the score maintaining last rock advantage until they tie the score or get a lead. This has worked very well in our club games where the level of ability between teams is great. The better teams still win but the scores are much closer.

i dont understand why people have a problem watching 3 hours of curling yet do not have that same problem watching a hockey game or a football game or possible a baseball game of even longer length..or at times soccer can really drag on.

Actually, one of the appeals of soccer is that you are in and out in 2 hours. 90 minutes of play with a running clock and an intermission. You can watch or even attend a game and not commit your entire day to the event.

A number of sports are looking to shortening their matches in order to increase engagement. Though controversial to the old guard, cricket is probably the best example of this.

Personally, I am partial to the current Blank End rules.

The modified blank end rule is the most ridiculous idea ever, it takes away part of the strategy of the game. It takes skill to blank an end and the idea of a team retaining last rock until they are tied or ahead turns curling into T-ball.

agreed 100%. Might as well just say the team that is winning is not allowed to hit rocks until the other team can catch up. Ridiculous.

And if 100,000 people can sit in the sun and watch nascar drivers make left turns all day I think they can watch 10 ends of curling.

There is very little difference in chances of coming back when giving up a first end 2 or 3 in 8 or 10 end games, so there really is no need to change the rules. The difference is in the 1-2% range.

Teams who get down early, if they play well it doesn't actually matter much if it's a 8 or 10 end game, they will come back.

Also agree 100% with this and above posters. Why should the losing team be awarded or rewarded for playing poorly? Warren should just fffffffade away.

Question what do curlers think?

Gerry is right..

I personally hope they make everything 8 ends..
More exciting to watch..
Forces more aggressive play

do NOT Fiddle with blank end rules..

Good curlers are really managing their own Blanks..thank you

okay, lets be honest here: how much is reducing the game to 8 ends really going to cut down playing time? by what..half an hour at the most?

if people have a problem sitting 3 hours to watch a 10 end game then how is cutting that by half an hour really going to help

and i dont buy the idea it'll cut down on blanks. you see a lot of blank ends in 8 end games too.

Not really. Peeling became so easy that new rules had to be implemented. 3 rock rule, 4 rock rule, 5 rock rule and where will it end?The idea of a team with a lead being allowed to blank is strange. In basquetball you can't hold on to the ball forever thanks to the shot clock. In football you have to move the ball 10 yards to keep it. In baseball you have to try to hit the ball or you will be struck out. A compromise is a modified blank end rule where teams behind in the score have the option of blanking. In all other cases, last rock advantage, use it or lose it.

Instead of the modified blank rule, how about just use the Slam 5 rock rule. I'm not huge on only having 8 end games as one will be toast in a hurry if they down by 3 or more before the 3rd end.

Getting new commercials instead of having the same annoying set of commercials would help to *not sorry to Pinty's*

i like that idea. the 5 rock rule does make it more complicated for teams with a lead in the last end.impliment that

im just not sold either that 8 ends will force teams to take risks. it might force teams behind to go for it but the teams who are ahead's philosophy wont change , they'll still try and run up and down. and i dont think it'll change the even ends are favorable for hammer theory because we still see teams blanking for hammer in even ends in 8 end games whether they are behind or not.

and another thing you spoke of.. we might see 3 or 4 end games if teams fall to far behind

Teams down a lot of points often quit because their opponent can blank them to death. A modified blank end rule would give them a chance. Blanking an end when you are up isn't really strategy it's just common sense. I understand why teams do it but it's not fair.

You Can't Be Serious

If they're down " a lot" of points they SHOULD quit. Shake hands and move on. If they're down a couple, just make some shots!! Put up "good guards" and try to get back in the game. Never ever penalize a team that's playing well just so the other team has an unfair advantage to get back in the game. You can't compare other sports with curling, it never works. They aren't the same in any way. Let's just applaud the team that's played well and put up a lead, rather than drag them back with stupid rule changes.

How about in hockey the team behind gets to have every face off in the other team's end.

Football the losing team starts at the 50 yard line every possession.

Baseball they get an extra out each inning.

Ridiculous.

Sometimes in life there are teams not as good as others..... and they lose.

In your view I guess the Cleveland Indians should have quit when they where down 5-1 in game 7 of the World Series. They didn't because the Cubs couldn't prevent them from going to bat (blanking). The Cubs won in extra innings in an exciting game where both teams had an equal chance to score throughout the match.

Most people don't realise that the old rules didn't work because playing conditions and curlers have improoved dramatically making peeling easy. The free guard zone is a good example of a rule evolution that attemps to balance offence and defence. We haven't gotten there because we've gone from the 3 rock rule to the 4 and now the 5. What's next, the 6 or 7 rock rule? Blanking when teams are down in the score can help them get back in the game but blanking when the score is tied or worse when a team is leading is not what competition is all about.

In last Sunday's final between Edin and Jacobs the commentators talked about blanking all the time. Control of last rock seemed to be the primary concern. Not scoring 2 or more but blanking or forcing the other team to one point. Strange.Most sports focus on offence. I remember fans booing at the 1988-89-90 Briers because of all the blank ends. Curling has evolved, the free guard zone and a modified blank end rule limiting blanking to teams behind in the score is another evolution to balance offence and defence.

Using your example, my point would be not to have a rule in place to give Cleveland an unfair advantage to catch up, just for the sake of the losing team being behind. Do it the old fashioned way as they did during the game and "earn it".

First off, although I respect his past accomplishments, a lot of Hansen's comments since his departure from the CCA seem, we'll, kinda in the cheap shot vein. And this is coming from a guy who shakes his head at a lot of decisions coming out of Ottawa.

But before this thread descends, as others have, into Frankenstein style rants "Grrr, blank ends BAAADD!" let me ask you this:

Do any of you know what the average length of game even is? Not how many blanks/game. How long, on a percentage basis and numerical average, do games last?

Do 8 end games 90% of the time go 8? Or is it less? What's the average number of ends played look like? 5? 6? 7.3?

Then what do the same numbers look like in a 10 end scenario?

Then start looking at the number of blank ends in those scenarios? And if blanks are more prevalent given game length.

Soccer, baseball and other sports havent shortened the lengths of their games just to placate the Great Glass Teat. Why should we? Just to sell some more frozen chicken wings?

Soccer has changed rules about flopping and injuries as well as overtime rules to keep games shorter. Baseball has instituted rule about managers going to the mound and put in timers between pitches to speed up games. Basketball is in the midst or revamping intentional foul rules to speed up games. I can't think of a televised sport that has not made changes to be shorter and more interesting for a larger audience. As I mentioned before, look into how cricket has changed.

Those changes you mention have nothing to do with the actual length of the game. Baseball us still 9 innings, soccer 90 minutes, etc. etc. The only thing they've done is attempt to reduce the delays occurring within a game which curling has already done with the time clocks.

And, let's face it, the actual length of broadcast is still pretty much the same. Those changes really allow more commercials to be crammed in.

Please, if you're going to put forward a counterpoint at least make it apples to apples, not apples to zucchini.

I would argue that reducing delays shortens the length of the game, but I will put forth a third time the example of cricket.

Matches went from FIVE DAYS!!!, to single-day matches lasting 7-8 hours, to the now more popular T20 form that go 2-3 hours. But that is not enough. There are very popular tournaments being held around the world with 8 or even 6 to a side with matches lasting about an hour.

Like many of the commentators in this thread, traditionalists scoffed at each of these changes, but organizers of events are filling stadiums, and TV networks are not having any trouble finding advertisers.

By the way, the one professional league that has never cared about the lengths of their matches is the National Football League here in the US. The NFL can stretch eleven minutes of action into a three and a half hour telecast. Viewership is down 10% this year, which is a huge number of individuals. I imagine they will be looking into changes as well.

Are you suggesting that we go back to no free guard zone and that we allow the use of hair and synthetic brushes that control the direction of a stone? I don't think you do. The rules have changed to adapt to new playing conditions. The modified blank end rule is just another evolution that attempts to balance offence and defence. The better teams will continue winning as they should but the games will be closer and having last rock on the first end won't matter as much.

Please. Let's be realistic. Cricket is not a fair or reasonable comparison to 10 ends of curling. Or even the pre-1970's 12 end games

If anything, your repeated statements about Cricket only spotlight the one, pseudo popular sport that actually did need drastic changes.

But, once again, it was change made not really to better a sport. It was changed to appease TV so you'd be forced fed more advertisements.

Nobody here is suggesting to revert back to the rules of yesteryear. My concern is that you are saying that the team that is behind should be given an unfair advantage over the team that played well enough to be in the lead. Totally not fair to the team in the lead.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe any other sport changes the rules mid game to give one team an advantage over the other, just to make it easier for the team behind a better chance to catch up. And why would there be?
