So...it's Shuster and Roth

Shuster hangs on by a toenail, Roth didn't win by much more than that either...

So, Team USA is set.

I don't mind our chances.

Good finals but I think better team won the Olympic berth on both sides

I think the two US reps are the most consistent teams this year, with the runners up not far behind.

Sinclair results vs Roth were W-L-W-L-W-L. Obviously Roth results were L-W-L-W-L-W. Format needs to change

How would a format change help? These are two closely matched teams, both playing well. We can only send one team. One has to win no matter what the format. Either team would represent the USA well in the Olympics. Interestingly, winning teams had a slightly higher OOM ranking, for what it's worth.

Although the competition format used to select our US representatives has somewhat of a Groundhog day feel, it does have the advantage of having the top teams play each other multiple times to get a better statistical representation of relative team strength. The chances of a significantly weaker team emerging as the US representative is very unlikely in what was effectively a 6-game match. Unfortunately for Sinclair's team, the last three games were more important than first three. Perhaps better this than a Page Playoff or a single-elimination knockout playoff format, where a significantly weaker team has a much better chance of beating the odds.
