I think that part of the game of curling is the "hammer" stategy. "Do we take a point and lose hammer? Or do we blank and keep the hammer?"
Those statements would be pointless. Plus you would be forcing a team to take a point in the forth, for example, when they could have blanked, because the opposing team gets the hammer anyway in the fifth. The hammer is always given to the team that did not score. That just makes sense. Perhaps there was sarcasm in the previous post that I was unaware of, but the hammer is in place for a reason and serves a specific function. To shange would be changing a huge aspect of curling.
