As a long standing CO supporter - she landed in the cash pot yet again. Her chirping is intelligent and timely. Her smarts are second to none. And she generates chemistry. WTO CathyO - and Brad, EJ, n Lisa. Wonder if it goes to Chelsey's coffers. Probly. Happy days early in the season.
Dumb event though.
I agree - having the logos all in place right after the draft was daft. 1970's marketing style. #OldstersThink. #OuttaDate. Who's Kiddin Whom

I'm glad they got a good final game and you could sense the tension in the air. I'm sure the winner takes all format made it that way so for a new event, not a bad idea. Everest must have put up a lot to stage this. Commercial breaks were also short which was nice.

PVR'd it - really, really good game. Gushue off to an early lead and had to beg for the winning point on last rock. Kaitlyn schooled Cathy O at 3rd but Long John Epping no match for Gushue - Epping can't stand up to the top guys, never could.
Great chemistry between EJ Harnden & Brad. That I never saw coming.
Cathy O kept her temper in check despite having a sour game.
Lisa Weagle fit in quite nicely on Team Gushue.
What great crowd noise. They were hammered the entire game - super noisy with those firecracker sticks.

Once my Manitobans (Kaitlyn & Lainger) brought Epping back from the early 3-0 deficit - he had Gushue on the ropes a few times - each time letting him off the hook with a poorly executed and placed rock. (Of course, every team in the game now has mortal fear of Gushue because he has that aura of being able to make "anything". Laing knew Epping wasn't up to the task - but Kaitlyn, Laing & Brown fought very hard to the bitter end. They deserved more than zero dollars for their efforts.

I found it interesting that the draw was held Thursday night and they immediately had custom printed shirts and jackets with each players individual sponsors etc in the corresponding team colours. Pretty quick work by fusion. I'm guessing the selections were done a while ago and Thursday nights event was put on for show.

Printing spare jackets isn't all that expensive on a large event scale....the wholesale cost to make those is on the order of $20 each, so you're talking a layout of a couple grand tops to have them ready in each potential color for each of the curlers.

Plus, the Skip's colors were already known/assignable before the draft, so that reduces the number you have to produce by 25%...and if any of the players happen to share d sizes (quite likely, the game selects for a certain body type for the most part), the number comes down even further.

Applying a sponsor logo from known art on a known location on a known color jacket takes one minute (I know, I do sublimation printing as a home hobby). So it's not even all that hard to customize those logos "on the fly".

A very accomplishable expense and task. Easy? no. Easily managed with enough money? Yep.

I can't wait for you to yet again change your mind on Epping after watching one week of him curling brilliantly. I've honestly lost track f the number of times you have flip flopped on your opinion of several teams and individual players.

Were the players expenses paid? Do you think winners shared with their regular teammates? If their were no expenses that would have made some sense so that at least half the teams got something. Maybe $5000 to each regular teammate or something like that as they were responsible for getting the players chosen.

When I was golfing this morning I said the exact same thing to the others, they must have stayed up all night making the jackets up.

No , they had four jerseys made for each of the non skips, one for each colour of the four skips of the opposite sex. Simple.

Pin for 2

KInda like the pin cover for 2 points. Wonder if they'll continue this on an experimental basis for certain tournmanets - obviously won't apply to playdowns, Scotties, Brier, worlds, Olympics. If the team without last rock has the pin covered do they score 2 as well?
Also, perhaps they don't use the 2 pt cover in 8th end or 10th end (last end) situations. Too much flexibility for a team that's been trailing badly - almost a reward to a beaten team. Doesn't matter in extra ends but in 10th or 8th end regular rules should apply. No?
