You’re right. I apologize.

I watched as much of the Einerson vs Hasselhead match as they showed on TV last night, which is to say we couldn’t see the lead’s shots.
And I will acknowledge that the main reason Einerson was able to score 3 to win was that Hasselhead missed 3 of their last 4 shots. And yet I can’t help but wonder if it would’ve even come to that if the leads could’ve played tick shots.

And this makes me realize what I really hate about this rule is how flipping unfair it is on the team without hammer. That team never gets a chance to play and score by this rule in regulation, because it’s only in effect in the final end. It’s unfair to the point where if I were in a team being affected by it, or coaching it or something, I’d walk off the ice in protest and not play that final end, and if I were on the advantaged side, I’d tell the opposing team to go ahead and ignore it as I won’t enforce it. I remember seeing a Continental Cup match years ago where a team was told a similarly ridiculous new rule, they said “that’s not curling,” and allowed the penalized team to get back to where they would’ve been without it without opposition before finishing the game, (I think it was Jennifer Jones, but I’m not sure now,). I’d applaud loudly if it happened at the Champions Cup somewhere too.

Benny always seems to think he knows best when it comes to judging the sweeping.

Yup, he does think that. He's very good at lead. I've been checking his %'s and he definitely belongs at lead. He really should allow the other sweeper to give some input.

Observer, I'm not sure I understand what you're saying when you state the new no tick shot rule is "unfair to the team without the hammer".

Because that team has an opportunity in the last and extra end to place a guard on the center line which cannot be removed until the 6th rock is delivered, does this not give them an advantage and doesn't this in effect actually handicap the hammer team?

I would suspect that if the hammer team previously had an advantage of winning in the 70% - 75% range, that advantage will now be reduced while the non - hammer team will have a slightly better chance of winning.

When I log into CurlingZone I'm now receiving a "Not Secure" warning signal on both my Desktop and iPad.

Is anybody else experiencing this?

This is related to the site still being in http vs https.

It's something we're going to change over the summer, but all it means is that they information being sent is not encoded.

Nothing has changed on our end, it's just notifying you that CurlingZone is still using the old standard.
