Hi All,
Firstly let me say I have no gripes about the team, how they act, or anything else. Secondly I am only an armchair fan - please correct me if I'm wrong.
But,
How do you give away 5 stones in end in the most important match of your lives?
As a fighter, that's like me being ahead on points and inviting my opponent for some free hits...

Surely if you have a 1 point lead, with 3 ends remaining, you are in control?
If you just keep clearing the opposition stones out, they can at most gain 1 stone. Even if they blank two ends and gain it in the 10th you would have the hammer in the extra end and should at least pick up 1 stone.
Am I missing something, or did they just make bad choices?
