Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella recently made headlines when he took to social media to address the issue of fan mail. In a video posted on Twitter, Tortorella expressed his frustration with receiving what he called "stupid" fan mail and asked fans to stop sending it.

Tortorella explained that he appreciates hearing from fans who have thoughtful and meaningful messages to share, but that he has been receiving an overwhelming number of letters regarding 'tanking'. He went on to say that the volume of fan mail he receives makes it difficult for him to focus on his job as a coach.
"You wouldn't believe the mail I get. Stop sending me mail about tanking. There's no such thing with professional athletes tanking. They would not be able to live with themselves if they went home & did something to try & disturb the outcome of a game. It is asinine."

While it may seem surprising that a coach would speak out against fan mail, it is important to remember that professional athletes and coaches are human beings with limited time and resources. With the advent of social media and email, it is easier than ever for fans to reach out to their favorite sports figures. However, this does not mean that they should inundate them with messages that are not relevant or meaningful.
