    Hi,

    I am trying to help an online petition out as I and many of my friends want to see Ice Hockey back on Sky. We need about 5000 sigs, but have about 340 so far. Can you guys help by filling in your details please? Ice Hockey on Sky would be so great.

    The Petition is here


    Thanks in advance,

    Rob

    Im gathering by your location your a 'Panther'? ;)
    I'll sign it but i dont have sky so it wouldnt benefit me personally but it'll help push the sport forward in this country (i hope), which is the greater good.

    But the old Sky footage was rubbish anyway - I was a London Knights fan - haven't bothered to go and see the London Racers since the re-configuration of the leagues - London Arena was a lot easier to get to then Lee Valley

    Also watched Chelmsford and Romford quite a bit on Sundays but don't have the time these days...

    Also judging by attendances you'll do well to get that many signatures without some heavy canvassing...

    The fact that you only have 340 sigs and you are asking people on an av forum for help probably explains why it isn't on sky anymore. Are there no hockey forums in the uk? you might find more people who care enough to sign. I cant even remember it being on sky:confused:

    It was a once a week half hour show with generally fairly amateur footage.

    The best place obviously to get the petition signed is at the games themselves...

    I dropped it in here for 2 reasons. One its an online petition. Two I thought any people who are av fans and hockey fans might want to sign it (like Mendes and myself). I did also hope people who had no connection to the sport might help out as it takes literally less than a minute, but if not that's ok.

    I certainly am but love seeing a couple of other teams play in the EIHL too hence I would like to see it on Sky. Thanks for the support mate.
