Hull City/Tigers or whatever the chap wants to call 'em

This Allam chap seems destined to royally piss off the Hull fans, business credentials aside he strikes me as being a little bit mad in his reasons to change the name from Hull City to Hull Tigers.

He's suggesting that he wants to drop the City bit and I quote
Quote:
"As a businessman I am preparing the club to go globally selling merchandise. To do it you want a shorter name, and you drop the words which don't mean anything and are common. Leave it to me; I am the businessman running the club I cannot afford to run the club by fans' feeling."


Now correct me if I'm wrong but my counting suggests that Hull Tigers is longer than Hull City by 2 letters or is his ultimate wish to eventually drop the Hull bit and just be called Tigers.

He then suggests that if he was the Manchester City owner he would change the name to Manchester Hunters because it suggests power. I take it that his original idea of shorter names is now out of date and you must now have a powerful name and that was all in the time it takes for an interview. As I said, mad...

United is a bit wet anyway, and the mancs have sullied it.

How about Leeds Veloceraptors. Or simply Leeds Fab.

How did we end up with the RL team being called the 'Rhinos'?

There is no obvious connection between this large African ungulate and our fair city.

The re-branding thing hasn't done Cardiff any harm. This bloke at Hull don't seem too sure what he want's though.
