I've maintained for years that Eve Muirhead deploys a "Weak 3rd Model" of curling.

By that I mean Eve has immense confidence in her ability to bounce off opponent stones or make massive runbacks that she allows a weaker 3rd (in this case Anna Sloan) to litter the ice with rocks, whether missed or made they provide ammunition for Eve to rock off of later in the end.

She's changed the strategy somewhat as Sloan has improved slightly - now Vicky Adams can sandbag with the best of them.

Eve knows what she's doing. And her opponents are terrified - even if they have superior players at lead, 2nd, 3rd.

Should also make you appreciate how good Homan's team has been in numerous high end events before this one.

Enough of the team Canada post-mortem; its playoff time! Who does everyone like (both in chances and support)?

For the patriots, both GB and Japan have Canadian coaches. The PA countries have slight winning records among the remaining teams; the two European teams are 1-2.

I find it hard to cheer against Japan. They have impressive technique and seem both personable and likable. A win by a PA country would be great for the growth of the sport.

Agreed. Korea certainly justified their auto-berth better than Russia in 2014 and Italy in 2006.

i picked muirhead to win from the beginning but im thinking now it's gonna be hasselborg.

for the men ...i am gonna go with edin. it's hard. koe that's been here has not been convincing at all . if he picks up it and they play their best i can see them winning but my guy is just telling me to go with edin

as for who i want to win.. i want muirhead to win the women's event. she is my favorite team left of the 4. if not her fujisawa.

for the men i would love to see decruz win but i doubt he'll even get out of the tiebreaker . that would leave canada, US, sweden and great britain to choose from and to be honest i don't have a preference in that case

yeah, it's been good to see korea start wraking in the medals over the last couple days. because through the first 6 or 7 days they'd only won like 2 and it was depressing

Did you not know typing in capital letters is rude.

It does not get your point across any better than a normal person who types properly.

FCOL, what's the matter, Curler 1, hasn't anybody in Brandon ever watched Archer? Surely somebody there understands the reason for the "caps". Nothing, whatsoever to do with rudeness, actually it's quite clever. NRN

I could not tell you what other people do or watch in Brandon.

As for me, I have no idea what Archer is, as I suffer severe depression and anxiety. I don't watch much Tv and I don't get out to see what others like to watch.

Homan team will probably gold - not likely that the 100% curling that they have been battling will go on much longer

Take a breath old timer



Only Canadians are silly enough to believe that the Olympics are not war, the rest of the world certainly approaches it as war. Canadians are good losers.....because they have had so much practice at it! I can't wait to see the posts when Koe falls out of the metals. I hope there is a post mortem forum, I can't wait to read the excuses!

I believe you are correct, the Olympics are war.
Seems to me also that too many holier-than-thou Canadians are still unduly influenced by the 200 year old perception that curling is still a "Gentleman's Sport". Additionally, they have way too much of a deeply ingrained ethos of "good sportsmanship".
That's okay at the club level, even good, but at the professional level........

Awesome gold for Korea

Drawing the pot in ee

How great for the host country

4 girls who will never have to pay for a lunch the rest of their lives - heroes

ML , you and I have to lose 100 pounds for a run at gold in 2022

I bet there schedule was similar to kmarts before 2010 - 200 practise rocks a day - t line in their back pocket

And congrats to japan too - only lost by 6 inches in ee

Not Gold yet, that was the semi-final. They need to play Sweden for the gold.

Against Sweden in the SF'S, G.B. gave up 7 points in the last 5 ends alone but only 5 points in the entire game against Canada. Thanks a lot, M'H.
