David Murdoch has been doing far too much rectal spelunking. He made the claim in the Eye Opener newspaper, the free publication handed out to fans at the world men’s curling championship, ” that the worlds field was tougher than last month’s Brier field. Does Murdoch actually believe what he said or did he make the statement after spending too much time in the patch.
Of all the teams at the 2009 words, Murdoch’s squad is one of the few that would have a chance to win a province – one of the weaker provinces. Let’s face it, he couldn’t win Alberta, Manitoba or Ontario. There are three teams in Edmonton better than him and he’d need to be playing out of his mind to finish fourth in Alberta assuming he would even get out of Northern Alberta playdowns.
Kevin Martin was very diplomatic when asked his opinion on Murdoch’s statement. His reply along with the full story “Martin prefers winning over debating” is available on Canada.com.
