Curling on TV During This Hiatus

With there being no live curling for what looks like the remainder of the season, the Canadian sports networks have begun to televise past curling events. But they are televising Grand Slam and Brier/Scotties games from a few months/weeks ago, World Championships from last year, etc...
This is not good. These things are still quite fresh in everyone's memory, as they are so recent. This is not interesting!

It would be so much better if they televised games from 10, 15, even 30 years ago or more. Then we could see players we haven't seen in a long time. For those of us who have followed curling for some years, it would bring back a flood of nice memories to see The Wrench, to hear Russ out-yelling everyone within 4 city blocks... to see Coleen do something other than the weather, and it would warm the heart to see Schmirler the Curler again...

And for those new to curling, it would be a wonderful history lesson to see Hackner and Lang and Ryan and Folk and Lukowich... to see Hemmings ham it up at the Brier... to see Laliberte and Houston, and Marilyn before she was Bodogh...

These sports networks are doing the same boring thing of replaying recent games/matches/tournaments from other sports, as well - tennis, golf, auto racing, hockey, baseball soon, as well, no doubt...
What a complete lack of imagination! Surely they can obtain the rights to air old stuff - the networks likely even hold some of the rights themselves already.
What's happening because of the virus is obviously very unfortunate. It's also unfortunate that while we can't watch any live sports, the sports networks are not taking advantage of the circumstance to do something more creative than to air last month's events.
They have gold to give - but they offer only copper.

Have to completely agree with you, furthermore, having to watch Carey and her team over and over during this period is actually cruel and unsual punishment. At least pick a repeat where we (Canada) has a competitive chance.

I like the idea of using existing footage and starting with 1927 show hi-lites of the Briers until 1954 where more film is available.

Complete games are prolly not available until around 1966 if memory serves.

But showing Brier hi-lites from 1927 to 1954 might only take an hour or two (2 to 6 minutes of hi-lites seem to exist for the older Briers)

What does exist are Brier films. Not just game hi-lites (there aren't many) but the pomp and circumstance of the Briers. Those too should be aired.

Once 1966 hits we could probably see more partial games, starting in 1973 we could even see complete games.

Also - local and regional CBC TV outlets prolly have a stash of old provincial playdown tapes. Love to see Richardsons vs. Pickering/Keyes/Campbells, etc.
Northcott vs. Gervais
Duguid vs. Taylor (MB)
Hunter vs. Fry (MB)
Bruce Hudson Vs. Garry Ross (MB)
Lerner vs. Picken (MB)
Burtnyk vs. Nye (MB)

Lots of great Ontario provincial films, also exist I assume but have rarely been seen by the public.

Lets see 'em now. Nothin' else on TV other than two guys talking over each other about how the virus is affecting sports. Both guys trying to salvage their jobs.

Some other provincial finals I'd love to see:

Rachel Homan being toppled by Jenn Hanna (ON)

Jennifer Jones vs. Chels Carey

Laliberte vs. Pidzarko

Early Joyce McKee (SK)

Early Matt Baldwin (AB)

Early Bob Pickering (SK)

Early Richardsons (SK)

Frenchy D'Amour (BC)

Rick Folk (SK)

Heather Houston vs. Connie Laliberte

Jennifer Jones vs. Jenn Hanna

JJ vs. Amber Hollan

JJ vs. Shannon Kleibrink

JJ vs. Heather Nedohin

Almost all JJ Jones Olympic games are worth a re-watch. She was truly incredible during that event. Her finest hours.

I think the Olympics own the rights to these and all games in all sports, so not likely to be shown in full. Usually just still pictures

You want nostalgia?
Go to YouTube and search out SCTV Monday Night Curling.

Dinorock & danno from riderfans.ca will enjoy this:

Perhaps old CBC Sask'n footage of any SK finals featuring Merv Mann getting wiped by - well, anyone! Mann was a tryer but like Gary Ross of Manitoba, never could get over the hump. Won a ton of cash though!

Personally, I'd like to re-watch the 1974 Manitoba final featuring the Belmont Farmers skipped by Don Barr vs. 6 time Manitoba runner-up Gary Ross.

Won't be a spoiler but this game went down to last brick - and it was very exciting. Was one of a few thousand in the old Winnipeg Arena to witness the game live.

I've watched a few of these games now from last year's women's world's and you can just feel the demise of Team Carey then, let alone after this season. Lots of discussion about strategy, with many under the breath disagreements. All team members struggled with the ice, especially weight, regardless of what the over inflated % says. Their whole 2 years together can be summed up by the Canada US game. In control and up 6-3 only to start questioning everything from ice to weight to calls and lose 13-6. There was a huge wall at far end, and the writing was all over it.

Too bad really. They were a good team.

The only curling philanthropy I did was buying sweater sets at Athletes Wear, buying curling slacks & gloves, odd broom at Moosie Turnbull's little shop of curling horrors on Notre Dame St., manned by Moosie's buddy, a rounder named Snapper Stay.

Also bought my share of curling supplies from Consols finalist lead Kenny Hall's Highlander shop on Ellice (gloves, sliders, etc.)

I'm so old I've never bought a curling item from Astronaut Arnold Asham or Goldline stores!

Back to Jones donation.
Amber Holland fell behind early to Jones superior forces, only Jones forgot to make a few kill shots to end Holland.

Holland was like Rachel Homan's furious end at this year's STOH. She snaked her way thru anything and everything, besting Jones at rock positioning over and over. . . . her last rock was a beauty, only leaving JJ a short double angle raise. As per usual Jones & Lawes flubbed the line call and when the smoke cleared, Holland was Canadian champion.

Jones received a nice tax deduction for her efforts!

That is great news about TSN and showing older classic games! Would be nice if Sportsnet could do the same with the Slams.

^ Looking forward to that.
Much better than repeating games from the past couple of years.

I'm not sure about Canada, but here from USA I can watch all 2014 Olympic curling games for free. No commentary, though.

https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/v...i-2014-replays/

Here's a quick bite to give you the flavor: this is the Olympic record 7-ender that Muirhead (GBR) set vs Brown (USA).

Games from 2013 is a start, I suppose... but I'd rather see teams that no longer exist, as those teams and games are far less fresh in our memories.
They need to go back at least another 8 or 10 years (or more) from 2013.

It's interesting watching these games from 2013 (on TSN 1 now)... 2013 is not very long ago, but the difference between then and now is significant - because of the sweeping.

We see hair brooms, different colour pads on brooms...
We hear the call "Needs to curl" as the rock is travelling, and see the sweepers completely lay off and hope it curls enough. Today, they'd try to carve the hell out of it.
Similarly, there is no switching of sweepers in terms of who takes the rock... You don't see just one sweeper sweeping - it's either both or none...

Players are swapping brooms - something not allowed today...
Hell, the broom handles are not even all colour co-ordinated to team/provincial colours.

Lastly, they all seemed to have noticeably more hair - and not only on their brooms!
