  1. Absolute savages, and why is a 34-year-old woman hanging about with these kids? They should be ashamed of themselves, but don’t know how to when they are allowed out to roam the street in packs.

  2. Sad thing is that there are dozens of genuine hockey players in Thanet that aren’t thugs. People that play the sport because they love it and nothing else!
