Did anyone notice that letter in the Manchester Evening News on Saturday. The letter went as follows;
What a relief it is that the vast majority of the people of Manchester have seen through the American nonsense that is foisted upon us in the form of ice hockey.
In spite of Manchester Storm's successful start to this season, the crowd for the game against Sheffield was massively down on that of previous seasns.
Shame on GMR, then, for wasting valuable resourses covering these fixtures.

I think this person is talking alot of rubbish, and not only is the letter insulting Manchester Storm, but ice hockey on a whole, and ice hockey fans, be they Manchester, Sheffield or Invicta Dynamoes, should reply to this letter through the following ways.
Letters should be addressed to, Postbag, Manchester Evening News, 164 Deansgate, Manchester M60 2RD. (All letters need full name and address, although a pen name can be used.)
Fax, 0161 839 0968
So come on ice hockey fans send your messages and tell "Real Sports For Real People" of Eccles where he's going wrong.
