^^^ they are current dead last in the standings, if they don't turn this around fast. They could be going home pretty quickly

Best possible record is 9-0

Of the Men's totally the opposite, Koe is 4-0

I don't know if its nerves or what, but Team Homan seems off. Not making the shots they would normally make and Rachel does not seem very confident right now it what decisions to make. Hopefully they can turn things around.

Depending on how they setup the playoffs
Either the top 8 teams go to the QF, or top 2 teams move straight to Semi's and next 4 go to Quarters. Since I'm not sure which is used in curling, safe bet is for Homan's team to make it into the top 6..... currently in 7th spot.

Not good at all, since it was not the Canadian who had South Korean disqualified. If you want to send death threats then at least send it to proper people involved.

^^^ round robin then straight to semifinals (bypassing QF), so Canada needs to move up in the standings.

After all the bans, disqualifications etc you would think that they would be extra vigilant in having clean athletes. If this turns out to be true then ban them for the next Olympics. They just don't get it.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

No quarter finals to bypass actually. Finish round robin in top 4 or go home. 3 and 3 this morning, tied for 4th with several. Need to avoid that kiss of death 4th loss. Fingers crossed.
