Assem Allam has put a tremendous amount of money into Hull City A.F.C. As manager Steve Bruce reminded everybody two weeks ago, the club may no longer exist if it wasn’t for their Egyptian owner, but with their chairman seeking a name chance with The FA — hoping to chance “Hull City” to “Hull Tigers” — supporters are left considering the cost of that investment. Is it worth finding a new, potentially club-saving owner if that means sacrificing your identity.
With Allam pushing forward with his quest to rebrand Hull City, NBC Sports analysts Robbie Earl and Kyle Martino consider the difference between right and right. Allam may have bought the privilege to do with Hull as he wishes, but that does that mean he’s correct to ignore history and force the club to adopt a new name?
