I thought that, too.

Maybe forgetting they often get their but kicked in Slams, etc?

lets just relax.

i think that their chanting USA was nothing to be taken serious though i will say that those people who claim the US teams are to blame for all the losses north america has can no longer do that

It would be nice if someone could explain the real “USA” chant. Also, whomever is in charge of making up the teams next year, keep Ben Hebert with the men only

or going outside europe we have fujisawa, kim, gim, and yoshimura to name a ew

this is supposed to be team WORLD after all.last i checked europe was not representative of the term world

Sorry my last reply didn't post. Maybe a good thing. With regards to Hebert I've said for 15 years, greatest sweeper if you need to go 5-10 feet. Fantastic.

However, accuracy for weight not so much. Always pound the sweep, then ooooops too heavy, again. And the constant unnecessary chatter from the far end regarding strategy of those who can actually make the shot.....koe, Martin, that's right Kevin freaking Martin, Jonny mo, bj, kennedy etc etc etc.

As I was told as a youngster in the 70's, just a like a lead on a world class team who all he can do is sweep, speak when spoken to.

At least with ben and bj trying to get her to at least try to win the canadian team may have grabbed a few points that could have been useful on sunday night

Seems to be major class between tsn curl can usa and asians for 3 years

I knew a guy that spent a month in prince george one day - npbody wants the continental cup hosting it would sppear

Unless some radical strategic changes are made in selecting which curlers should represent Canada in future Continental Cups, Canada will have no chance whatsoever of winning for many, many years.

Inviting teams who won or were runners-up in previous events such as last year's Brier or Scotties makes no sense at all when you consider the wide variety of skillsets now required in the Continental Cup, i.e. Skins, Scrambles, Mixed, etc.

What Canada desperately required in this year's event was an All-Star team which could be competitive in All the formats. Take Mixed Doubles for example. Who in their right mind could expect MacCuish, Flasch, Moulding, Fleury, Camm etc. to be super competitive against the likes of Paetz, Michel, Edin, Errison, Hasselborg etc., all of whom have won major M.D. championships?

What I think should have been attempted this year is to build a Canadian team primarily around Gushue and Homan & Co. Why? Because besides being competitive on a traditional team basis, these two teams would provide the all important building blocks for mixed doubles events in which curlers such as Gushue, Nichols, Gallant, Homan, Courtney,and Weagle would help ensure Canada gets off to a reasonable good start for a change. In addition to including Team Fleury, I would also recruit Lawes to skip a team made up of Wilkes, Peterman and McEwen thereby providing three additional mixed specialists. On the men's side while continuing to include team Epping, I would have brought in Jacobs & Co. to replace team Koe who has been having a troublesome year, at best. Unfortunately his team no longer appears to provide the necessary skillset outside of the traditional team format and some members even appear to have a negative impact on others.

P.S. Our Canadian coaches together with our captain were badly out coached and out strategized . Their European counterparts made them look like amateurs.

Canada deserved better.

It's time for Stoughton and the Nedohins to go.

So Long, Farewell, Adios!

Great players do not necessarily make great coaches. This was obvious at this years CC.
And whats with letting all those coaches/captains standing behind the house/down the side etc?

i really dont think europe should be allowed to invite the same teams year, after year, after year. ofcoure they have better chemistry. they are there every dam year

building on what you said in a way i would like to see it be made a rule that mixed doubles specialists get an invite. instead o throwing curlerd together invite the great mixed double teams out there. like sahaidak/lott or walker/muyres. going international teams like aitken/andrews, turmann/lill or perret/rios.

if this is the grow the sport opportunity it claims to be the give the mixed doubles specialists some light

also. where in the **** is asia?. tjapanese women have 4 top 25 level teams, korea has 3 top 20 level teams. why are they being ignored

i eurpean teams dont want to work with them split this into a 3 way event between north america, asia and europe

Money, money, money, with a capital M. I realize sometimes they alternate with US and Asian teams, but it's not a set schedule. I would think big picture more money from Japan and their HUGE audiences than the 500 people who watch from Hop Suisse, Sweden, and in defense of Scotland lots of viewers, so long as tsn
Doesn't block the broadcast.
A 3rd or 4th ranked Japanese ladies team was playing in a local spiel in which the coach was streaming on his phone back to Japan at 8 am local time where 1000's were watching online. That's more than all of Europe watching continental cup.

Dollars makes sense.

But it wasn't supposed to be Team World this year. This year's event was Canada vs Europe. Hence no US or Asian teams. Other years it is NA vs World, in which case you see US teams and Asian teams - both Japanese teams and Chinese teams have been there in the past (Fujisawa participated in both 17 and 18).

it's more of a "who cares"event as it is a fun thing for the curlers. It's made for television, like the skins game, and in the long run means nothing.
