    To Suzanne and Curling Fan your both wrong. Brad's own team mates expressed shock at being let go and fat lot of good that did him huh. Making changes to make the team better hogwash. The new team sucked! That's why he got his old rink mates back. Jerome is right and many people feel the same way as he does.

    Jerome...Brad Gushue did nothing wrong in getting rid of a couple of his teammates. In professional sports the leaders of teams make changes to help improve the team to gain further success. I'm sick of people bashing Brad because he wanted his team to improve and reach higher goals. Every sports team does it!

    Derek...the schedule for the provincial tankard can be found at www.curlingnl.ca and then click on the Men's link under the Tournament section.

    Let's go Team Gushue...we need the best team at the Brier!

    Telegram please stop posting information on curling in the sports section. This is a game if you can be over weight and be the best in the world you cannot really call it a sport.

    I understand they have skill but so do half the b'ys down at doolies pub.

    The time, money and effort is just not worth it when you know the chances of beating a world class team like the Gushue rink is slim to none.

    Curling still remains strong recreationally and at the junior level though.

    There's no doubt about it, the Gushue Team are top-notched curlers;
    no denying that.
    However, I'm still having difficulty trying to re-gain respect for Brad
    after his greed for his own personal fame forced him to get rid of a couple of his team mates. Brad needs to come down off his self-inflicted high throne a little.

    Jerome do you believe everything that you read in the paper? Personal fame, greed what are you talking about?
    Brad and his other team mates made adjustments to their team based on the group's chemistry. He is not the only one who made those decisions it was a group decision. Money, fameor greed had nothing to do with it.

    Like any professional sport sometimes changes need to be made in order for the team as a whole to succeed. Why don't you complain about every trade decison and draft pick in the NHL while you are at it??

    I don't know Brad G personally but I'm sick of small minded people like you ASSUMING that you know what went on behind closed doors. Did you ever think that the players that were released were causing a problem because of their behavior and that Brad and co. had no choice but to make the tough decision to release them?
    They are professionals for god sakes!!
