Costs are costs and expenses are expenses...reality=reality. This just proves my point that most curlers have no concept of the real costs of sport.

Awesome. Although I think all your ideas are wrong I completely support your right to push this agenda forward watcher2.

This is not sarcasm.

I suggest, first you need to get your idea out on social media. Start a Facebook group and twitter account...I'm guessing the decision makers you are targeting don't use Snap chat or Instagram much yet.
You will need to find some support here to get your idea off the ground. Target up and coming teams in Canada and see if they will publicly support your idea.

Next write a letter to Curling Canada or better yet tweet your idea to the CEO. She is easily found on Twitter I think. Then contact Sportsnet with your idea and see if they will get on board...perhaps the majority of us on the curling zone forum don't represent the majority of Canadians. Who knows, maybe Sportsnet would back you....Canadian teams might be better for ratings. Try have them do a study or better yet find the ratings for all grand slam games over the past five years and do the study yourself. Perhaps the mined data will support your view.

Also, come up with a catchy name for your movement. "Make Canadian Curling Great Again" is probably not the way to go but I leave that too you.

The great thing is that if you truly believe in an idea it is easy to find some people to help you in your quest. Posting an idea in a forum is a good start but you have to take the next step. Go for it! Be a change agent, a disruptor!
