People voting for the National winner representing Canada are dreaming. CCA will not expose their Select Team to a sudden death game.

You can be a ton better team, but you will have the odd bad end, and thus, a bad result.

BUT, you have to prevent a series of bad results. Therefore, I strongly suggest we support a best of five Challenge. It is the only way we start to develop some competitive accountability.

We cannot argue with Canada's results of late, so Ottawa says "why change" , and they are right. UNLESS we have two or three Canadian teams that can win internationally....

GIVE US A SHOT, OTTAWA.....A best of five challenge cannot be so terrifying, can it?

I, for one, would suggest that the National Team be the team that wins the Nationals. Include the current National Team and if they win, I can live with that. However, should they lose, then those players that are currently on the National Team, will then have to go back to being a part of their Provincial playdowns, having to compete just like the rest of us. This would create an level playfield for everyone.

The first blogger has it right. Let's be realistic It is difficult to move Ottawa when a bunch of funding comes from winning.

Give their Select Team a challenge from the National winner in a series of even best of three....let the winner represent Canada the following year.

The National winner representing Canada is a dream....We do not have the depth to assure that a provincial team can be competitive on the international stage. Not even B.C. these days.

Have the national winner tackle Team Canada in a series.

I would bet the house on Team Canada.

Any takers?
