ECHL CHIEF SHOULD GO TO ICE CAPADES

Sports Editor:

It's time for Pat Kelly to get his head out of the ground (or wherever it may be) and leave our Monarchs alone. It seems the only games he attends are ones the Monarchs are playing. And it's because we're physical, I'm sure.But hockey is a physical game. A hard hitting contact sport. Fights are a part of the game. If he doesn't want to see any fights in the ECHL maybe he should be commissioner of the Ice Capades instead.

What about the refs at the Raleigh game? Greensboro played one- and two-men short all night long because of them. If the Monarchs just touched someone, a penalty was called. Each game Pat Kelly attends, the refs are intimidated. That stinks.

I'm a diehard hockey fan as a lot of people are in Greensboro and the ECHL in general. All hockey fans appreciate a good hard-hitting game. Greensboro packs 'em in because of that reason. We come to support our Monarchs, not the fights. But a little fight never hurts anybody (except our opponents).

The Monarchs are fighters in another sense. The fight and desire to be winners is all that matters. It will be a tough fight all year with Pat Kelly around, but in the end it will be a TKO and the Monarchs will be the ECHL champions once again. Play hockey Monarchs. \ Skip Parrish\ Greensboro
