So much as I admire Steve Cram ( canny geordie lad)

Should he be doing the commentary for the curling again, after being so rude about our brillient silver medel winning men's curling team,

I come from Newcastle so I can say I wish Newcastle united was as good as our men's curling team.

sorry if people not from the UK dont know what Im talking about.

I just saw something I didn't like in the fifth end of DEN versus CAN.

Canada was trailing and making several misses.

One of the Danes burnt a rock just a tiny bit. Rachel Homan removed it from play to the visible disappointment of the Danish skip. I am not a curling expert but the Canadian commentators cautiously disagreed with Homan's decision. I thought she took advantage of an honest and immaterial mistake while frustrated with poor performance.

It was Homan's right and the traditionalist in Canadian curling don't like Homan to begin with. If Homan does poorly and does not medal the blame will be solely at the feet of Curling Canada by not allowing the teams to bring their own coach and their own 5th.

Her right? Yes. Should she have done it? Probably not.

I'm supporting (Eve) Muirhead in Women's tournament now!

Hogline Controversy

In Draw 7's game between GB and Sweden on Sunday, Muirhead was caught on a hogline violation. The stones have a sensor that will light green for clean throws, and red if the stone is touched over the hogline. This happened in the critical 11th end which Sweden went on to when.

In video replay, it appear Muirhead's hand was not close to the stone at the hogline. However, video replay is not used. The official tested the stone afterwards and it appeared to be working.
