Coverage on Sportsnet only seems to be on for Saturday's Semfinals unless my PVR (I use Bell; channel 410) hasn't updated yet. Bummer if so, was hoping to see the Round Robin games.

In the past, there were frequent posts taking issue with Manitoba Legend's posts. Interesting, I see he has not posted on this thread AND NOR has anybody else.

I have been watching scotus hearings but now that its - men - canadians - koe v carruthers i will watch

Be interesting if fbi figures out who is lying this week

Problem with curling is too many flukes , teams are made up of same 20 people - just shuffled ..

Less silly beards this year - just reid and a couple of others need to clean up

Posting is now really hardcore loners and nutbars now ..

Zerohedge was taken over by hillbillies

Cbc doesnt allow posting on many stories

Wpg free press has about 30 basement dwellers that complain - many stories dont allow posting about aboriginals and touchy subjects

Man I was rooting hard for Koe there -- so close. Best of luck to him in the QF.

Weird question/observation maybe but does it look like Koe's lost weight/leaned out more or is it just his team's new tour gear? Not that I thought he was a big fella in the first place.

Did they not explain that the rule was written in an ambiguous manner and would be rewritten to clarify that it was not the fifth rock but after the fifth rock. This was to mean the equivalent of the five rock rule but was not called the five rock rule.

Y

Yes, and good for her. The rule was not written clearly. It has been revised and written as it should be and will help the other teams to understand too.

(I think when they revise a rule - good for her)

Appears Raytch has the tougher road to hoe into the Elite championship.

She lost hard down the stretch in the qualifying games. And she's got Scheidegger in the QF, if she wins she'll face the obliterating force of Ms. Hasselborg.

Scheidegger will be her #1 nemesis on the road to canadian & world championships. However, when Raytch is on her game - I don't think Schiedegger can quite stand up to the Homan side. The one who can - Hasselborg. Anna & Rachel are the best shot-pelters in the women's game. Percentages & wins prove it.

On the other side - Jones waits in the bushes to ambush the winner of Laura Walker & Tirinzoni. Silvana is bolstered this season by having the mercurial Alina Paetz fire last rocks. Walker (formerly Crocker) is the young skip thrust into skipping a group of grizzled and gnarled veterans with average age around 46/47.
Laura is one of my favorite curlers, her on and off-ice demeanor is outstanding but her bugaboo is simply shot-making. She doesn't make enough!

Jones will be pleased to face either Tirinzoni or Walker in the semi - not so pleased to be confronted by either one of the shot-pelters; she'll be better served by Scheidegger although nothing is guaranteed at this point with JJ.

Overall - impressed with JJ's "new" team, Joss is delivering shots & percentages better than Jilly. Didn't expect that this soon - as Jones usually needs more time to adapt to new players & styles.
Jones is no longer able to sustain high percentages - but in this format she can win or steal games with the right shots at the right times, so 65 to 75 games can be winning games - especially in the hands of a devious, intelligent skipper.

Hopefully, it was just a senior moment.

Can't imagine any Skip, let alone any player for that matter participating in the Elite 10 not fully understanding the five - rock FGZ rule by this time.

Ironically, in February 2018, it was Jones herself who was among the first Canadian curlers to enthusiastically endorse the WCF and CC announcement that this rule would be implemented at the beginning of the 2018 - 2019 season.

You do know they rewrote the rule after Jones questioned it? To "after" the 5th rock was thrown. As the announcers said, she is a lawyer and you would bet she read every word of the rules before hand. They also admitted it was written wrong in the first place - but as long has it has to do with Jones - the complaining will take place.

Also keep in in mind , the reason there were separate rules laid out was because they were not playing the conventional game and there were variations from the regular game.

Yes, I am well aware she graduated in 1999 and subsequently articled for several years as a non-practicing lawyer with a Winnipeg - based financial services firm.

But no, I certainly do not recall that Jones ever "questioned" the WCF and CC five-rock FGZ rule. On what date did she did this? At the same time, could you advise what this rule stated before she 'questioned " it, and how it read after it was amended.

Nobody, I'm sure, is "complaining" that she appeared to be confused last week during the Elite 10. Just seems curious, at best, that she, of all curlers, didn't understand the existing rules for that particular event.

to be honest, I cannot remember the exact wording, before they Jones called for a rule confirmation. But after they had their chat, the rule was changed to say 'AFTER' the 5th rock has been thrown.

Maybe you can find a replay on Sportsnet or the Grand Slam site.

And really, not one person on her team, the other team or the commentators questioned her why she asked for clarification. They were all happy with the outcome.

Deliverer,

This happened during their match against Laura Walker’s team, early in the match...2nd or 3rd end.

The confusion was whether or not the special no-ticks-on-rocks-on-the-center-line rule applied up to rock 5 or after rock 5. The rule as written was apparently ambiguous on this point, and the commentators agreed that it was. They summoned the man whose rule this was (his first name was Pierre) and asked him to clarify. He told them it was supposed to be after rock 5, and as a result. Jones took her offending rock out of play and Walker put hers back where it belonged. The officials then went around and clarified it to all the other teams and they made the written wording more clear.

I guess my observation was based on the 5 rock rule as part of the slams a few years now that she would be familiar with it. 5 rocks has always been after 5 rocks. Regardless of the new tick rule. Sounds like a combination of miscommunication and misinterpretation of the rules.

Apparently this center-line-no-ticks rule was in its own separate portion apart from the usual free guard zone rule, and something about it made it unclear if it was supposed to be like the usual 5-rock zone rule or not.

After they replaced the rocks, Jones told Walker she was sorry, and then Walker agreed aloud that “it is confusing.”

Also, and I’m a little hazy on this part, I believe the offending tick shot was actually a mistake. They’d been trying to curl around the center line guard and wound up ticking it instead when the throw came up light.

I miss the McEwen team. Even though they were a great team they always seemed like underdogs.
