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
This was the headline in The Times, one of the biggest national newspapers

After the controversies surrounding some of the athletes competing for us in London, the media loved this, hockey got a headline for a good reason for once. Usually when hockey gets even just a few column inches it's because a linesman has been sent off, there was a bench clearance, or someone got cut open with a skate. And most recently a player throwing their stick at a ref.
