Rauter, Moore and Turnbull at Vancouver 2010 (TSN photo) After a 25-year-career, Linda Moore has retired, effective immediately, from TSN curling broadcasts in Canada. The network made the announcement today, citing “a chronic health condition.” However, Linda wants the curling world to know... she's okay! “I have what's called benign fasciculation syndrome,” Moore told The Curling News from her home in Vancouver. “It's a neurological...

But a few weeks ago, he was wearing another curling hat: junior team coach and part of the organizing committee for the 14th Annual Prestige Hotels Rick Cotter Memorial Junior Classic in Vernon, B.C. We caught up with Cotter ...

CURL WITH MATH:
Giving Points Away: Part II
I never intended a part two to my original coverage of the Canadian Open, but one commentor suggested perhaps I was to lenient in my assesment of these decisions. ;nbsp;It is possible. ;nbsp;As a good Canadian I naturaly avoid confrontation and only bury critism underneath pleasantries like "perhaps they might have" or "possibly she could have considered" instead of just calling out skips for being dead wrong.Much of my strategy analysis is based in data, but I also believe what my childhood stats hero Bill James would protest, "there are so many things that none of us know, no matter how detailed the statistics".A skip is always making a strategy decision based on many factors, most of which cannot be analyzed with statistics. ;nbsp;Even stats which are available...

Studying why curlers curl
BY JOE PAVIA It's a leisure study that's serious. Kitchener-Waterloo resident Simon Barrick is an MA candidate in the University of Waterloo's Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies. He has been conducting research on curling's beginner leagues since September because he feels these leagues might just be a way to increase curling numbers, which have [...]

COACH BILL:
Rachel Was Right!
In yesterday's (12.14.14) final game of the Women's Canadian Open Grand Slam event in Yorkton, SK, in the last end, without last stone advantage, Rachel Homan, on her first shot, with no centre line guards but with two corner guards on each side of the sheet (albeit not great corner guards) decided to come around one of them as opposed of placing a centre line guard. Rachel played exactly the right shot, in my humble opinion, and here's why. And before I explain my position on this, club curlers take note, this is something as much for you as those elite teams!Let's face it, Team Homan was not in a good position to win the game! Make no mistake! What I'm about to share with you is not magic. It's simply a way to make the opposing skip's last shot as difficult...
BOB WEEKS ON CURLING:
Jones rink deserves team of the...
In the coming weeks, the Canadian Press will announce its sports award winners. There are winners announced for male, female and team of the year.Earlier this week, the Lou Marsh Award was handed out to bobsledder Kaillie Humphries. That drew some criticism from many who felt that hockey player Drew Doughty should have won. Don Cherry was one of the most vocal in that camp.But when the team of the year is announced, it's my belief that it should go to the Jennifer Jones team which won gold in Sochi. As those of us closely aligned to the roaring game, of course, this seems an obvious choice. Jones and the team of Dawn McEwen, Jill Officer and Kaitlyn Lawes ran through the field at the Winter Games, going undefeated to capture the gold. It was a truly magnificent performance.Others who will...
