Dear sports editor Marc Nesseler,
Did you know that you have Iowa State fans that pay money to subscribe to your newspaper? I thought the small article in the Tuesday paper about the ISU-Kansas game on Monday night was a disgrace to the fans of ISU.
The last paragraph about the "handful" of students was degrading. We have gone to many games at Hilton and enjoy watching their enthusiasm and their good, clean fun. The ESPN announcers said there is one word to describe the fans at Iowa State — NICE.
Maybe you should read the Des Moines Register to get the real story of what happened at the game. It could be that the small number of students were throwing the small, plastic megaphones at the two referees that have been relieved of their duties for the Big 12, because of the game. If this had been the University of Iowa, your paper would have never-ending reports of how they were cheated out of a win. I don't expect equal time, but it would be nice to have equal truth of the topic.
