Well this is about the part that John Lawlwss edited for the programme, when we played Sheffield Steelers !!! I do NOT agree that he should have cut the passage, I personally have had grief from the fans when we travelled to Sheffield earlier in the year, we even had grief from the staff serving behind the stalls selling the merchandise. They said they had a better arena, and then the sheffield steeler fan STUART MARKS left a message saying John Lawlwss was childish, for editing the passage, I would say that there was only one party here that is CHILDISH and it is certainly not MANCHESTER STORM. Whats up with these STEELERS are they jealous that we have the ARENA, We have the VIDEO WALL, and most of all we have the CROWDS. Look Jealousy gets you nowhere !! That is all I have to say on the matter. It is not like me to blast my mouth off like this, but it really had to be said!!!

Why does John Lawless keep on using Ruggles? He misses more than he scores and is just a burden to the rest of the squad. For instance everyone knew that Houghie was crap (well in comparison to say Gretsky) and so no-one relied on him BUT the players (especially Byram) expect Ruggles to at least try and score (or at least keep hold of the puck) but he doesn't. He's just crap. and he's paid too much. Get rid of him

So you beat the Panthers properly this time. Shame more of their supporters didn't make it - apparantly, it took them over an hour to get to the motorway, so they gave up and spent another hour and a half getting back into Nottingham! Shame they weren't as determined as the handful that made their own way there... Even the Hawks are doing better than them at the mo! TTFN

Luleň Bears won eh! 11-0, The reason why luleň won by so big numbers was becouse the Manchster Storms didn't play the ugly hockey that they played in Luleň, and that the referee was giving penalties the right way. But it is nice to see the Manchester storms players with their gloves on. instead of playing rugby.

And what's this about problems with your new sponsorship deal? I've been told that you have an amazing deal lined up with a dog food company but legally you can't use it. Apparently the Advertising Standards Authority have said it's misleading for Manchester Storm to put winalot on their shirts.
Is this true? If it is then let me know.

If swear words get a 10 min penalty, what do words that aren't swearwords but that you wouldn't drop in polite conversation get. Say, for instance, bum? Or Colonic irrigation?

Hi Storm fans - what's the weather like there? We've got a foot of snow. My team (Calgary Flames) is on a bad streak (won 1 tied 1 and lost 5) after a great start so I'm seeking consolation. Also our football team lost in the Grey Cup semis to arch-rivals Edmonton. Please tell me Manchester won. Guelph Storm in the OHL won yersterday and are 4th out of 49 in Major Junior League - the only bright spot in my day (well night as it's 2.00am here). Keep on supporting your TEAM (unlike fickle fans here) and all will be well.

What are the storm like at home this year - we keep collapsing, Basingstoke was pretty even but they got too many goals in the second period, although shots on goal was similar. Then cruising against the cobras at 4-1 collapse and in 10 minutes it's level at 4-4.

I can see why Lawless edited the Stormforce item, it wasn't offensive or over the top. It was just childish.The reason so many Steelers fans came to the Nynex last year was not as you suggest to watch your quality hockey team, but because so many of us enjoy our hockey regardless of who is playing, and the Nynex is a nice arena in which to watch it. How many Storm fans travel away to a game when the Storm aren't playing?Talking of quality, can anyone remind me how many points Storm have scored in the European Hockey League?

My feelings huh? Hmm.....well, let me see....OK.....what exactly is John Lawless playing at with the Smiths? First he breaks up a winning combination for no excuse whatsoever, and dumps Martin Smith onto the 3rd line. After which he has to eat his words, and reverse his decision! THEN......all of a sudden little Dave Smith finds himself without a line at all! All he gets to do is skate around for a bit chasing the puck whenever we're shorthanded. I mean, do you really put your fastest forward on a SH line? And do you really break up a 1st line winning combination for no reason?Your comments welcomed.......

Bran, why the animosity towards Steelers? When we started there were only 2 teams who were attracting over 2000 fans to games (Panthers and Devils).The Steelers have helped (if not been totally responsible) for lifting this wonderful game to a higher level and, dare I say it, probably been thesingle most important factor to get an ice plant and team in Nynex. Storm have learnt from our experiences - ask Dave Biggar at Nynex if you don't believe me !!!As for the Panthers and any admiration you may have for them then I would like to see if you'll feel the same in a couple of years time. Sure, Panthers have a good team. Their backroom set up is abysmal and they care for nothing but their own fans and team (very unlike Steelers, Storm, Cobras and Cardiff). The ever naughty and nasty Nottm Panthers would take great delight from the fact that only 50 visiting fans can get tickets for their rink - that is not conducive to helping the sport at national level. Come on Bran, Storm fans are morelike Steelers fans than any other club. It is Manchester and Sheffield that will move Ice Hockey to the next plateau in the UK. Let that be our objective, and, if you must slag off any team then it can only be Nottingham Panthers.

A comment about the editorial in the Storm v Steelers programme. John Lawless cutting it because it was to strong? More like because it was too childish. Leave that sort of thing to the Steelers eh? All this talk about best arena in Europe, maybe so, but our team has some catching up to do to get anywhere near Sheffields achievements. When our time comes, we'll have plenty of time to rub it in. As much as we all hate it they remain #1, until the end of the season at least. What a joy it was to see Nottingham beat them in the B & H cup, at least there wont be another Grand Slam this season.

I was home for the game against the Bisons and it was a sloppy game, I will not be home for Newcastle but hopefully we will cream them, I read the Lawless editoral and thought it was slightly over the top, however I think Lawless is doing a good job and we are only stil half way through the season there is a long way to go yet, we need to gel as a team and someone should shoot that lightning Jack and give 'Drum Tart' some clothes. The musics great the games are usually great the atmospheres terrific, well done keep it up - Heather block 119

Comments:
01. Tell us about yourself - We've been sad ever since Slough away (last season's play-offs) when we found out that our parents were unmarried.
02. What's the story about you becoming a Storm fan? - We're not. We're Sad B******s.
03. What's your favourite place to watch matches in the Nynex arena? - In OUR seats.
04. How do away rinks that you've been to compare to the Nynex? - Far better. More atmosphere, more cosy, more abusive, more interactive (you even get to bang on the plexi at some rinks)
05. Who was your favourite player from last season? - Nathan (liked his scoring prowess)
06. What do you think of Lightning Jack? - Do you mean Damian?
07. Jon Hammond? - Do you mean Noddy?
08. The video screens? - No good since the 'Sarah!' advert got removed. The new ref signs are crap (Ed's note - should have had Les 'on the information super' Heighway instead).
09. The cheerleaders? - Cheerleaders or Sad slappers?
10. The band? - Would prefer to see some clothing?
11. Drum Tart? - She must have hands like a navvy. She's got a gob like a fog horn. Yes, we can see the vein, and no, we don't want to do a wave.
12. The ice-cream sellers? - Good replica Esbjerg kit.
13. What was your favourite game that you've seen so far? - Slough away (last season's play-offs). Smith's fight was spectacular. The night the 'Sad B's' were conceived.
14. What was the worst? - Kingston away.
15. Have you held up a sign? If so, what was on it? - 'Noddy' and 'Ducks' - but not in the same blocks.
16. Would you like to drive a Zamboni? - Where would you like me to drive it?
17. Have you ever skated before? Are you any good? - Yes. About the level of the first line.
18. What's your favourite tune that gets played in the Nynex inbetween action? - Boom, boom, boom ! Let me hear you say FINNIE!
19. Do you have a favourite fight that happened in a match? - All of Stefan's, Lindsay & Ruby (last season in Nynex) Wee Davey at Slough
20. Anything else we should know? - We should know the way to away venues but we don't.

Great article about the Steelers game. Only one query, which class team were the Steelers fans watching in Manchester last year? I don't remember any class teams in Div 1. Do you mean in the play-offs? Also, are you trying to suggest at the end that the Storm are just creating a false sense of security by pretending to be crap? Does this mean you might start playing hockey soon? And to the guy who asked if Bison were good or Manchester bad, I'd say Manchester were bad (but that's because I don't want to give the bloody Bison any credit!). Probably worn out trying to break down my beloved Bees! I mean come on, how can you claim to be a class team when you can only put three past us. Even the smelly ones from Hampshire did better than that! Cheers, Alex.

John Lawless is a killjoy. Everyone loves having a dig at the Steelers and on this occasion it was done extremely well (til Lawless got his hands on it). Your video wall is excellent, the Storm fans are friendly and already know more about hockey than the Steelers, and they can take a joke. And my sister lives in Manchester.

Can't Wait for the John Lawless Cutting !!! Storm Fans think they've got problems with Storm not performing so how do you think we feel in Sheffield. After winning the last 5 domestic trophies we're now struggling to find any real form. I reckon we have one of the best squads in the Superleague but the committment and heart has gone from some of the players, that killer instinct is missing. At least in Manchester things are getting better, you have only been 'promoted' this year after all. One of the Storm Fans wanted a defenceman and mentioned Shannon Hope, sound choice. However, can I interest you in another option ? I suggest Storm need about 3 or 4 new defencemen to play alongside Cooper and Jago. At Sheffield we could let you have Wilson, Malo and Kelland. These 3 are past their best before dates but better than some of your existing guys. As you can guess, I along with other Steelers realise we also have to strengthen and get rid of some dead wood - it's hard, and sad, but got to be done !!! By the way were Bison really that good or Manchester that poor ?

Comments:
By studying a MA in Sheffield, I am even further away from the Manchester hockey scene than I was at Keele. I could try the scene here, but the House of Steel is so expensive, even for students and other concessions. Saying that, I have been to see a few matches (via free tickets from the Fresher's mart!). What have I noticed? Never have I seen so many (for want of a better expression) beer guts, on those so young. No, not the players, the 'cheerleaders'! Hold on, they don't cheer they just sort of dance about a bit. Now I know I have a genuine beer gut, but at least I have the decency NOT to show it off! New costumes to hide the bulges please. One more thing - if someone at Manchester does thinks about 'cheerleaders' for the Storm, can you PLEASE think again! There, said my peice!

Well we really got turned over tonight didn't we....The Bison's netminder definitely deserved his case of Boddies Gold.

Just to say I wish Storm all the luck on Sunday against Basingstoke (not that we need it). Pages on the internet are a great idea as the whole world can find out about the Manchester Storm and the best multi-purpose indoor arena in Europe (Staff are fabulous, especially the stewards). As for Sheffield revenge will be sweet on 31st January '97. See you all at the arena.
