I am shocked and dismayed that such things should happen to our players!
I don't do social media of any kind which has to be a good thing. Can not the originators of such messages be named and shamed and prevented from watching ice hockey games at IAW?
Officiating tonight certainly was'what it is'. It was a disgraceful display by Rose and Darnell. Frustration cost us. Even Lord will have trouble keeping a civil tongue as to how this game was conducted.
This will be a huge game! Bet they will use last season Challenge Cup Final tactics , namely crash bang wallop and in general try to intimidate us big time .
Lord always does his homework and will be wise to it.
(Those hungry for atmosphere will not be disappointed)
Surely atmosphere at the Arena is a two way thing. The fans feed off the player action and then the players feed off the fan reaction and encouragement.
Sometimes it just doesn't happen. So be it- that's sport.
Some of the other teams might be a bit miffed about some of this content - such as Fife, Belfast, Nottingham. Sheffield are having a downer this season but they will come back and be competitive. As you say CHL was fantastic. Keep it going I say.
Being arrogant is not a nice thing to be. Choose your words carefully and try not to offend. However the Welsh humour is terrific and some do not understand it.
The chanting etc at end of Fife game was great fun.
