Cz first slam 7200 hits

Brier, worlds generate 35,000 hits

Brier generates 700,000 viewers this yr down from 1 mil
- numeris
A little strange in that there is little else that a sane person would watch on tv

Expect hard core viewers like my wife would keep viewership up around 400,000

Anyone know where to look ?

numeris top 60 ??

When Rachel Homan is on her game she is the supreme queen of women's curling - no doubt!

Proved it by hammering Einarson - who thought she had control of the game.

2 unusual things in this game - Homan, who's so perfectly defensive gave up an early deuce when Einarson's team was firing on all cylinders. Raytch, humiliated by the deuce-strike against her came right back and peeled out a 3-banger which is something Einarson has become very good at defending.

Rest of game was Einarson trying to craft up a deuce but Homan shrinking the scoring zone, forcing Kerri to bail end after end until Kerr's legs finally gave out for trying.

Unusual in that the world's best 2nd, shannon birchard had her worst game of the tourney.

The obvious plan by Team Homan was to focus on the perceived weakest link on Team Einarson, that being Val Sweeting. . . . and the plan will work when Emma comes up large, which she did.

Hasselborg & Muirhead not making the playoff round was somewhat surprising but given their levels of inactivity, not so much.

Too bad about Fleury. She could have had a hefty pay cheque, even getting creamed by Homan in the final but succumbed to SilPatzi in the semi.

Statistics of Note:

All Team Homan members defeated their Team Einarson opponents by 5 pts or more.

Closest battle was unexpectedly at 3rd where Val Sweeting succumbed to Emma by 5 pts.

Courtney absolutely devastated Meilleur. Wilkes only curled 75% but she muzzled Birchard by 9 pts.

Finally, Rachel took out Kerri 83 to 77.

Team wise, The Homans went 83, Einarsons 75.

Not any interest in stats -

Last shot of last end

Mouat chips in a dog 10 feet out at boards into 2 gushue rocks on pot

1 shot won game - 25 - 50% chance if played by 10 ONLY skips

Edin missed 2 in a row like that earlier

Is that shot a 5 of 5 or 25 of 5

Kind of spoils game for me btw

Gushue deserved the win

Great games ocurr when last rock draws the 4 ft for win

The teams work too hard to decide game by plinko

Watch the price is right if you like that .. morons win $10,000 at plinko

All 4 teams that started the semifinal game with hammer in first end lost. That's the craziest stat for me.

You must be getting up there in age. Brain not working quite right. Every top team makes shots like that. Gushue included. Maybe Gushue should have removed that rock and rolled towards Center . You obviously don’t appreciate the skill level of these players.

Anybody can make shots like that

Thats what we practised for hours on saturdays - made 50,000 fluke shots like that

And you dont need sweeping

Edin throws 30,000 rocks a year and prob cant save $10,000 a year the last 15 years - can make 2000 of those

You probably made a few - maybe not

The tv idiots have screwed up a great game over the last 50 years to have 14 rocks in play to appeal to about 500,000 65 plus viewers that never threw 1 rock

Would it kill them to have regular curling the last 2 ends so the best team wins

Dont spoil my day with nonsense - waiting for the dumb cop that is on trial for wasting the druggie to be found not guilty - hopefully they shoot about 200,rioters tonight

Hope bb draws the pot on last rock

It seems you liked the Pat Ryan days. Hit on the nose in the tenth for a 1-0 victory?

Your posts are getting all over the place. Maybe up the meds , or slow down on the alcohol.

So if you call a tough shot and then make it it's still a fluke? It was not some 1 in a 100 shot, Mouat makes it 1 out of 3.
I'll get off your lawn now.

A one in 3 = 33%

Most players abt nine of 10 = 90%

End was played to get 2 or 3 but there was no shot for 1 or 2

Stats say wrong team won

Two months ago i bough erk .b at $220 , now $267 - thats investing

I also bot 50,000 trillion energy a 6 cents same time - it went to 60 cents in a mnth - thts gambling like a 10 ft aise hail mary


Btw i sold at 11 cents

Anyone know how Mouat managed to score 5 in the last end with Bottcher in the first game of the Players Championship.
