Today the Scotties starts.. I know it is early but who are your favorites for the Riderfans Hotties award?

I'm thinking there should be 2 classifications

1. Overall Hottie

2. The Cougar Hottie

Jennifer Jones is the standard by which all hotties are judged. She's not a junior anymore but she's also pretty smart, 4 time canadian champion.

Cheryl Bernardin of Alberta would have been on the all-cougar list but she got whipped in ALberta and couldn't attend the canadian scotties.

Jones third is only 22 so she'll appeal to all younger male no-minds.

Overall, the hottest curlers might be Emma Miskew of Ontario (3rd) but one of the prettiest women on the planet is the fifth player for Team PEI - her name is Trish "Stratus" Affleck and someone will no doubt post a great pic of her for all to see. She's spectacular!

Maybe once upon a time, but she's no longer even the hottest person on her team, far from the hottest Manitoban at the Scotties (Breanne Meakin) and not even in the top dozen at this event.

No, Breanne Meakin is the Fifth.

Yes, she is the fifth for this event but has been Cathy O's third for much of the season. She was not available for Manitoba playdowns b/c she was skipping a rink at junior nationals (finishing third after SK stole the win from her in the semifinal) so they picked up Fallis, who has not looked good at the Scotties from what I have seen (haven't checked the percentages to verify). If they want to take a shot at making the playoffs they might consider getting Breanne back in the lineup.

Didn't like the attitude before, but gassing CahtyO while they were still reigning as team Canada was pretty brutal. Jen was bad most of the last scotties and in the final, and wouldn't be wearing the red and white right now if it wasn't for Cathy.

I to hope she gasses it.

BC will be tough as they have something to prove after a very ugly start. But I see she also still has to play Nova Scotia's Heather Smith-Dacy, that will be another tough game. I can't see NWT, NB or NL beating Holland, she should go no worse than 9-2.

Everyone's bashing Jones left, right and centre. Geez...

The people listed above have a grand total of zero Scotties wins. Jones has won the last three Scotties, and she's a lifetime Manitoban. She has, INARGUABLY, been the best female curler in Canada for the past half decade. I don't care if Holland finishes with a great record in the round robin - that doesn't prove a whole lot. It's the play-offs that matter.

Jones has only ever finished the Scotties round robin in first place once, and that was in 2005. Every other time she's made a comeback to win it all in the playoffs. I see no reason to believe she won't do the same.

Jones is a great curler no doubt, just like the other Jones before her. However, like the other Jones, Jennifer does things to rub people the wrong way. For me personally, this is not just the Cathy O situation (I have no problem with making a change, however the way it was handled will open Jenn up to criticism).

I feel similar about the Lawton team and how they have treated some former members of their team.

I am fully aware of what the subject of the list was. I was not in any way/shape/form stating that Jones should have been among the names on the list (notice how I referred to her as a "lifetime Manitoban"?). My point was that people are bashing Jones despite the fact that's she's clearly the numero uno of women's curling in Canada - I backed this point with a strong fact: that none of the names on the list of curlers hailing from Saskatchewan have won a Scotties, yet Jones has won the last 3. You see, despite the fact that people are generally turned off by the fact that Jones kicked Cathy-O off her team, I don't see an issue with it. Was it a nice thing to do? No, it wasn't. But when you're the top dog, you're allowed to bend the rules of courtesy from time to time... Plus, the reason that she didn't want Cathy on her team wasn't because Cathy's playing was poor. The reason she let Cathy go was that Jenn wants to win an Olympic medal in 2014, and by that time Cathy will be 45. Jenn made the choice to begin training a younger player (ie. Lawes) in the hopes that she would develop into an excellent third over the next few years and be at the top of her game come 2014, not at the tail-end of it.

For someone who is quick to call out the abilities of other people when it comes to reading comprehension, you're not exactly a scholar yourself, "sport".

And as for my popularity on this forum, I really don't care who does/doesn't like my posts. It's a free forum for anyone to post what they wish, so I partake in it. Mind you, maybe I should stop. After all, this thread isn't exactly the epitome of class. "Scotties Little Hotties"? Boo.

Its professional women's curling, stuff happens that isn't pretty in all sports.

As for yor suggestion, no offense but that is silly. To force a team to keep a player they no longer want makes no sense. that would be like saying any team (pick a sport) that wins the big one, has to keep it all its players next season. Teams evolve and grow through changing players and thats what Jenny and TC wanted to do.

It's tougher for the ladies to have a dynasty, as they quite often choose to settle down and have a family. However, it would have been interesting to see how dominant Sandra and co could have been without the cancer, and if they had put curling ahead of their families. Don't get me wrong, I truly admire when athletes put family first, but they would have been ridiculously dominant, imho.

Cathy lost everything when she got dropped from the team. She had to put together a new team, find sponsorship, and qualify to be Team Manitoba. No small feat for a short period of time and a new team. I read a very good interview with her (on TSN maybe) where she said it was a very hard pill to swallow because she felt that she had earned the right to be at the Scotties through her accomplishments as a member of TC and to have to re-qualify was tough to take. I don't know any of the back-story but I have followed curling for years and I always felt like Cathy was the "shot maker" on the team. It always seemed (to me, anyway) that when Jenn was having a tough game Cathy was always very consistent. I was shocked when Cathy was dumped; although not nearly as shocked as Cathy herself, I'm sure. I always liked Cathy. While her team is struggling this year, I am happy to see her at the Scotties because she HAS earned the right to be there with the rest of the best in the country. I wish her all the luck for next year.

If the team earns the special funding by winning the tournament than it only makes sense that they should be obligated to keep the team together and return as Team Canada with the same members. It's pretty low that they would kick someone off the team when that person would lose their funding for the year.

I don't know the entire story, but if it wasn't mutual or forced by an injury or retirement, the entire team should lose the funding as well.

If Jones didn't want it to happen it wouldn't have. The idea to dump Overton came from somewhere despite you pretending the other 3 members of the team came to this conclusion independently and spontaneously.

Take it as a slight or not (I did), but in the Heart Chart (the daily newspaper for the Scotties) there is a Get to Know the Teams section (Feb. 22 edition online at curling.ca). They ask each player the same questions. One of the questions that was asked was "What are your pet peeves?"
Cathy O's response: People that lie, disloyalty.

Glad to see Cathy O curl the lights out tonight. I also think that Jennifer plays horribly when the crowd is overwhelmingly against her (both PEI and the Manitoba games as examples).

No truer words were ever spoken, chief!

Schmirler won several Scotties, a couple worlds and Olympic Gold....

Coco Jones (Colleen) won six Scotties but only two worlds, never got to an Olympics.

Jenn Jones (JJ) has four Scotties (last three in a row), 1 worlds and has not played well in the last two olympic trials.

schmirler is the best shot-maker of the three, Coco Jones played the most defensive and Jenn Jones is the most exciting - playing like JoJo Dumps one game and all-world the next four....

Schmirler had the best third, ever in Jan Betker. Overton-Clapham wasn't far behind but croaked badly at the world championships. Kim Kelly was a steady, sometimes spectacular third for Colleen Jones.

All these teams had fabulous front ends. Gudereit and McCusker were very under-rated. Officer and Askin are physical beasts. Mary Waye and Nancy Delahunt were also under-rated but effective.

Great teams - great curling memories!

What was clear to me is that Cathy O's team is a long way away from being elite as there is almost no discussion between them - what Cathy says is done without question.

Last night it seemed she and her third hardly even like each other, though I'd have been snappy too. Cathy was able to make the incredible shots she did because her third was way off her game. Bring in the cute fifth again, please!

Either way, I was thrilled to see the golden girl Jones have one handed to her, regardless of how the commentators fawn over her every move. On the plus side, Jones has clearly managed to keep her appetite through the stress of the split.

Team Sask has to play a lot better to win and is certainly capable of doing that. It should improve their confidence knowing that even while not playing particularly well, they took Team Canada to an extra end.

If they can get by the winner of NS/Ont, taking the long route is probably a lot better than sitting out until the Sunday evening final.

Holla Holland had Jones by the uknowwhats after five ends and almost had Jenn down for the count. But JJ withstood the massive green assault, hung in there like a champion and took the game in 9 (with that beauty three, almost four)

ANd Jones did it without the services of Officer Jill, her loyal companion who barfed up one of her worst games in Scott history.

However, when Officer plays poorly, JJ is usually at her best.

I don't expect Officer to improve much in Sunday's final. She may have been the all-star second but right now she's the all-star weakness.

Jones needs Saturday off to re-charge her batteries for the gold medal game vs. either Ontario, Nova Scotia or Sask'n.

Poor Cathy O. - they interiewed her on TSN and she was almost in tears (for not being on the ice with Jones)

Both Team Canada (Officer) and Sask seconds (Tammy Schneider) are strong hitters, but, like many seconds (even at the national level of play) seem not as good on draws and other in between weight shots. Definitely advantageous if you can get either of those players having to play somewhat difficult come around shots where a foot or two of weight is important. Sask second and third were frustratingly off weight on several draws which helped set up Jones big ends. Also, Sask seemed to mis-sweep a couple of key shots of Ambers. The difference in the degree of fine tuning of Team Canada and Sask was noticeable. Good that Sask earned a second chance by finishing first.

Great comments MM - however, Officer was not only having trouble with some of her draws (as expected) she was also nosing hits (unexpected). As Russ Howard points out Jill was either over-throwing her big weight (under pressure) or her mechanics were off slightly. The big question in Sask'n is that while Amber Holland is a top notch skip, she seems a bit short-changed by her team. (first trip to playoffs). However, if the first 5 ends of last nights 1-2 game are any indication that team can be very good. Don't seem rattled by the klieg lights, TV, etc.

We used to refer to players who throw the rock like Jill Officer as "pushers" -- now they call it an "arm extension". Not really the greatest of mechanics IMO although through practice, timing, and innate ability some good players like Jill get away with it. Most of the really good big weight hitters (e.g., Martin) get their weight up with body speed coming out of the hack on hits. Young Ontario team all have text book deliveries and seem to do that as well and they seem like the only Scotties team that can reliably throw good weight at all four positions.

I agree that Amber is definitely a top level skip. The rest of the team have to turn it up a notch or two, however.

The entire team seemed to play much better tonight. Kim Schneider struggled early in the game but really played well later on. (She seemed like the tense looking player to me). SK's overall judgement of weight, line, and sweeping seemed better today as well. Although a very sound skip, Amber makes the odd puzzling strategic decision (e.g., not throwing the first guard through the house on the last end despite 3-point lead) which can get the team into a bind. They will have to be firing on all cylinders in the final against Team JJ.

How great was semi-final Saturday? I am sure you all loved it just as much as I did. It was a bit easier on the nerves today as I could tell the girls were totally in the zone by the 5th end break. They played like true Champions today and if they do that again tomorrow I believe Saskatchewan will have another Canadian Championship Team.

It was a sunny day here in Charlottetown, but really quite cold. Amber, Heather and I walked to Cora's this morning for breaky. It was a hit once again! Anyone who has never been to Cora's really needs to find one, I think there is one in Calgary now, otherwise they are mostly out East.

After breaky I think we all went back to sleep, well I know I did. I crashed pretty hard until it was time to get up for lunch. Seems like all we have done for the past 10 days is sleep, eat, curl, eat, sleep, eat, etc. We are all tired of eating good stuff, haha. I think there will be 4 rounds of fish and chips at our table on Monday!

After lunch Kim and I stopped at Cow's. We both bought a few cute things and I did get a small ice cream cone - I looked a bit crazy walking around with it on such a cold day, but it was worth it. We picked Heather up some chocolate covered potatoe chips ... she might end up on TLC's "My strange additiction" over these things. The sidewalks here are a bit dangerous with all of the rain and snow that has been going on. I almost slipped and fell several times, but was careful to to grab Kim and take her with me ... I can just see the headline now - Pregnant fifth squashes tiny third, but manages to save ice cream cone.

I went to the mall with my mom this afternoon, all I bought was a sweater for my husband. Speaking of Greg, he was supposed to get out this morning so was at the airport at 5:00 am. His flight was delayed until 9:45 am. That took him to Montreal and he had to wait there until 8:00 pm to fly to Winnipeg. I am still waiting to hear from him when he arrives in Winnipeg. He said he really needs some sleep and a shower before he heads home tomorrow morning. Hopefully the rest of us have better luck getting home.

Tonight we had the Kruger Gala. We all got fancied up for the dinner and awards. Amber, Kim and Tammy all made the second All Star team. Cathy O was the winner of the Marj Mitchell award and was treated to a standing ovation. After dinner Jully Black took the stage and she was amazing! I had the chance to shake my baby bump on the D-floor and even got in a slow jam with Bryan Mudryk ... who is almost as handsome as my hubby ; )

Now, it is time to catch some zzz's. We know team Canada is going to come out strong tomorrow, but that doesn't really matter. All we can do is be ready, enjoy the moment and leave it all on the ice. I know the gals are ready for tomorrow and you will all be in for another great game.

A special thanks to my family and friends that have been messaging me this week ... this 5th player stuff is hard on the nerves and your support and humor is keeping me and baby energized.

Don't forget to send your positive thoughts our way in email or just in spirit : )

I think the thing that gets me is that the way the Jones team cut her.

From what I understand, most other teams in curling will get together AS A TEAM and say, things aren't working, blah, blah, blah, what are we going to do? Isn't that what Cheryl Bernard's team just did.

The Jones team meanwhile, had the other three members get together and then blindsided Cathy O. No warning, nothing.

Sask. Scotties performance impresses former curling champ Joan McCusker (http://www.newstalk980.com/story/20110227/47642)


McCusker thinks Saskatchewan has good chance to win Sunday's final.

Joan McCusker knows all about the nerves and anticipation leading up to the big game, having won three national titles with Sandra Schmirler in the 1990s.

"That's when your mind wanders and goes through all the scenarios of 'what if'," McCusker told News Talk Radio in a telephone interview Sunday morning. "What if you win? What if you lose? What if you play badly? What if you start off on the wrong foot?

"You think to yourself, 'How many times am I going to have this opportunity to be this close to finishing it off?' "

Holland's rink faces a stiff challenge from Jones, the three-time defending champion. But McCusker suggested Saskatchewan has a very good chance.

"They're actually in a pretty positive state of mind," McCusker said of Holland's crew. "People often talk about that: having that momentum of the win of the semifinal."

Even though Holland will carry the hopes of a curling-mad province on her shoulders, McCusker thinks there's even more pressure on Jones as she goes for a record-tying fourth consecutive Canadian women's championship.

"You know that the fans and yourself [Jones] expect big things of you, and that is really hard. It's a big distraction."

Despite her wealth of experience, McCusker said she doesn't need to give any advice because Holland's team has already shown they're world-class players. And win or lose, McCusker added, Saskatchewan will welcome the Holland team home as heroes.

“We weren’t quite good enough,”said Homan. “They were the better team. They deserved it. “Now we get to play for ugly gold rings (the prize for winning today’s bronze medal rematch with Nova Scotia at 2:30 p.m.).

Wonder how the sponsors felt when she referred to the rings as "ugly"? Sounds like this girl needs to grow up a bit. She is a good curler but needs to be humbled a bit. Hopefully, losing to Nova Scotia and walking away with nothing will make her appreciate things a bit more in the future.

Sask front end with a bad weight judgement there, they have done that a couple times, can't make mistakes like that and expect to win a national final.

It's womens curling...both teams will make a ton of mistakes before this one is done.

Gave up three in the first, partly because her brushers swept her rock a bit too much. I hardly think she's given up the game yet though.

Yah meant *if that did. Getting the deuce back was clutch and even bigger to hold them to 1.

I was looking forward to the game but when its over in the first end not good. But no big surprise to many mistakes and usually it hasnt been the thrower that been making the mistakes skipping decsions brushing error etc. We always play just good enough to lose.

6-6 tie now.
Too bad they lost the game in the first end.
Man, support our girls, don't give up on them - worse than the Rider bandwagon jumpers.

That was an unbelievably ballsy move by holland to make that tap for 3 to tie the game, you tick the guard and game over.....awesome shot, we got a game now

Then turns around and throws a poor shot letting Canada off the hook in the next end. Bizarre how good and bad things are in the same game.
