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.

You can substitute a player at any time for any reason. Injury, performance, just because you feel like it. All five players on a team have equal standing. It's hard to think of a team sport that *doesn't* have substitution. The best teams plan well for it. It most certainly isn't cheating.

I agree with Fresca. There are several rules that have changed the game for the worse.
1. 5th player
2. Allowing the delivery of the stone after the T-line.
Putting a limit to how far you can slide before releasing the rock.
3. Should not be able to use any broom other than corn.
4. 5th end break.
6. should have stayed with 12 ends.
All of these changes have wrecked the game.

The game went downhill once curlers stopped having to bring their own rocks to the rink.

Agreed.
Also, the no smoking on the ice rule. Nothing like seeing the classic Orest Meleschuk delivering a rock with a cig hanging out of his mouth and ashes flying off of it.

Talking

Should never have moved the game indoors. Or maybe the game got worse a few minutes after the Scots invented it.
