    Hi

    I would like to congratulate the Gushue Rink on your showing at the Tim Horton's 2010 Brier.

    1. As a NL'er I am very proud of your team's accomplishments to date but there are certainly area's of growth required before you will be a serious contender.

    2. Right now I would rank you guys, Newfoundland and Labrado,r at best 4th-6th in men's curling.

    3. As skip Brad you yourself still needs to mature, maintain your composure and address the needs of the team behind close doors, not in front of a national audience with microphones and cameras everwhere.

    4. Korab, your junior years are behind you and now is the time for you to become a man. Give up your adolescent behavior : waving at the camera, licking out your tongue and your unique hair styles. This sort of behavior does absolutely nothing for your image

    To be the top's in the country and be the best in any sport is not easy guys. You guys are getting there and I am sure the best for this team is yet to come. I have been one of your mainstays along the way and I will be there with you once you get there.

    I hope Team Gushue you read this comment and take the positives from it.

    All the best

    With his last rock in the first end, Gushue demonstrated yet again that he cannot control what Russ Howard calls his inclination to play hero. It also demonstrated that he lacks the maturity and deciveness needed to beat even skips of his own age. Rather than freeze his last rock to Alberta's shot rock on the button, which would very possibly have given him a steal of one or at worst limit Alberta to one, Gushue went with the low percentage double take-out - taking out his second shot rock in the process. Admittedly it wasn't his first choice of shots but he was talked into it by Fry and the others. It hasn't got much better since then. Whether NL wins or loses today's match (now 4-1 in the 5th) will not silence the critics of this talented but undisciplined, poorly led, and relatively immature team. A gold medal to their credit notwithstanding, only time will tell whether their enormous investment of time and resources in the game will ultimately produce a consistent, solid performer the calibre of Martin, Ferby and the Howards. Their HEAD coach, Ken Bagnall, has his work cut out for him.
