Stoughton and Martin are in the 11th end right now.

I like to see good curling and there has been plenty in this game.  Martin's team has made some errors and had a pick and now are in a bit of trouble.

By far the best winter sport.
Martin needs to get rid of Morris.

Martin just went 1-3  :o
Brad Jacobs (NO) just handed Martin his arse 8 to 1 and they shook hands after 7 ends.  Jacobs just keeps getting better and better every year. He curled 100% in that game.

Good to see some new blood on the way. By the looks of it Martin and team didn't bring it this year. Stoughton still looks sharp, hope he makes it to the Olympics this go around..

I think Kevin Koe or Howard would be our best reps. Homan on the women's side. (if they make it a habit to curl like they did in the scotties)

Martin's toast.  They got in a funk and couldn't get out of it, they've completely lost their game and their focus.  All of them.  I've never seen them curl so badly before, they can't get anything right.  It'll be interesting to see how this affects them going into the future and the coming offseason.

I think Howard with Middaugh is going to be REALLY tough to beat, but Stoughton, Gushue and Jacobs could all knock him off if the stars aligned.

It's been great curling so far, I'm really looking forward to the weekend games.

Was hopefull last night that Martin would get through but not so,, they actually got it together but a little to late. Got to throw my support behind Stoughton now,, liked his win over Howard today it was a good Finnish.

Jacobs is giving Howard a heck of a game,, looks like he may pull it off.

Jacob's rink definitely deserved it.  They had an awesome week and will represent Canada well.

Yes,, Jacobs played very well..

It is good to see some new talent coming up and not just winning because the old gaurd retires..

They played some risky shots and pulled them off,, very entertaining to watch..

It was a good Brier..

I thought the briar had alot of problems with rocks picking. It happened to all the teams so no one had an advantage unless you threw smoke all the time. When you see guys who are at the top of their game and they can't play well because of bad ice then they should be doing more to find what is causing the problem. When fans pay top dollar to go watch the games then they deserve better.

Well the team that won made the shots,, they all played on the same ice..
