100% yes it does fall within the rules.....alternating skips or 3rd or 2nd or lead or any combination above is within the rules. The 5th playa can be used at any time in the game or games as
substitution as needed, required, or wanted. Seeing as 99% of the time it makes it worse for team using the substitution, most teams stick to the original 4. In the case of this thread, Shannon has an ailing back and Heather will fill in for "some" of the games "if necessary". I don't see the big deal being made of it by one or two posters here. The other teams would welcome a switch at skip as it would disrupt any flow or momentum they have and it is waaaaayyyy harder to flip flop skips and gain any advantage than to keep the same skip. I can't be alone in this thinking.
And for FRESCA, cheating involves breaking rules. NO CURLING CANADA RULES ARE BROKEN SO WHAT IS YOUR POINT?
And yes this for whoever is arguing against the 5th player is a waste a database space....... IMO.
