Not sure how to assess this new McEwen team. That said, not sure how to rank the 2022/23 Ontario-based teams.

Any thoughts??

Think it will probably start quite well. All excellent curlers and thinkers but none will be improving. Fry seems best when with new teams but seems to lose enthusiasm after a while. I would be surprised in they win worlds'.

Eve Muirhead has retired. Sad day but what a career she had.

A shame but hopefully Scotland has some more talent. I thought she’d do one more year. Wonder what prompted this?

Eve has posted an article for The Courier where she gives the reasons for her retirement in more detail. I'll sum up the main points here:

- after she and Bobbie Lammie won the World Mixed Doubles last season, she wanted the chance to devote herself entirely to mixed doubles from now on. The program did not give her that option when she asked. "That was when the big lightbulb came on."

- before that there had been a smaller lightbulb, when after they had their really bad World Championships in the Calgary bubble, everyone went completely silent on her apart from family and close friends and a few others who helped her pull things back together. She says that was a pretty brutal experience.

- even though she's playing as well as ever and her body isn't telling her to stop, she doesn't want to go on to just tick a box, and with three other important people from her gold medal team having already left, (Wright, Smith, and their coach Kristian Lindstrom), she saw she'd be starting from near the bottom of the mountain again and didn't think she could muster the motivation to continue climbing that for what would be her fifth four-year Olympic cycle.

- she has put herself down for a duathlon and will be entering the London Marathon at some point, and "who knows what else."

I will admit. It was a shocker, but the quotes really do shed some light on the system the Scots use. She is pretty young and has received accolades that will carry her forward post-career. When I read about the duathalon and marathon goals I thought of Ms Courtney, of course. So, they are both moving forward and away. Ah, to have that youth and optimism. Curling can stink sometimes. Best wishes to a great future Eve. Join us in watching the current quadrennial from a distance. Never a dull moment... except maybe mid July.

Figures. Knowing the Scottish system which is old school dictatorship model where the players are controlled by the suits I figured there had to be some politics invloved. When the most accomplished curler your country has ever had asks to do something reasonable like asking to focus on MD you don't say no but apparently they did.
Always thought Eve's job was curling, suprised she didn't stick around for another quad to cash in on sponsorships and the like but maybe she's set for life already or maybe she's just tired of it all.
Going out on top that's for sure.

Some thinly veiled shots at the Scottish system in that article. I figure maybe Bobby Lammie didn’t want to go full time MD (why would he when his Mouat team are going to own the men’s game for the next decade?) and the idea kinda fell apart after that.

IMO nothing sums up Muirhead’s career better than her two titles in 2022. When she was on great form (like in the world mixed doubles) she could absolutely cruise through a field. Muirhead and Lammie never looked like losing a game that week and were absolutely deserving champions.

Then you’ve got the Muirhead from the Olympics in Beijing. Eve and her team weren’t always on great form that week, but they still managed to find a way to sneak through the RR, and then they raised their game in the playoffs to win gold.


What an unbelievable career. Eve is not only the best curler Scotland has ever produced, but she has a very strong argument to be the best ever female athlete from Scotland period. I’ll raise a glass to Eve tonight.

Where do we go from here? I’d imagine Jen Dodds will form a team with the remaining members of Team Muirhead (Hailey Duff and Beth Farmer) plus a new player. They will compete with Rebecca Morrison’s team to represent Scotland/GB women over the next quadrennial. But I think it’ll be a transitional period where we struggle to medal on the world stage.

As good as Muirhead was in mixed, I still expect Scotland to be big time players on the world stage. Mouat and Dodds are a world class team and surely Lammie will find a new job partner too.

Jamie Sinclair will be a super spare for Chelsea Carey’s team this season.

This is the direction the Americans are going.
Dictating who, when and where the curlers play. For example: The best American womens curler wasn’t placed on a team. And many times the national champion team gets kicked to the curb and a chosen team is sent.
I guess most countries have their quirks. Most Asian teams are picked by their organizations. Canada’s only true national championship only happens every 4 years.
Switzerland might be the only country that’s doing it right.

Sara McManus from team Hasselborg is pregnant. How will it affect them? Maybe alternate Johanna Hedlin will jump in
