Look at the Brit media coverage because of a W in OLY pre qualy's

Do Nottingham, Sheffield, Belfast fill the rink to see locals? Do Dundee/Fife derby games fill their rinks to see locals it's a bonus....BUT they take money outta their wallets to see the home team win,
Every sports fan no matter which sport only wanna see one thing, The home town team win
