"I was most upset to learn that our victory was not deemed worthy of a single line in your paper"
-- Grugwyn Rufford (DP1)

A letter of complaint from Grugwyn Rufford to the Daily Prophet (DP1)

Mr Rufford, a member of the Welsh National Gobstones Team, was upset about the lack of coverage for their win against Hungary and the game of Gobstones in general. He feels too much coverage is given to Quidditch, including frivilous articles such as the one about Puddlemere United's flying bus. The editor replies that most wizards find Gobstones to be "deeply boring" (DP1).

Commentary

Notes

While the date printed on DP1 is 31 July 1998, the timeframe for these events is 1992-1993.
