Old Frightful

There's a bit of a row brewing at the KC Stadium...

39 posts in this topic

The Allams have told Hull FC they will put the pictures back tomorrow and keep them in place for £500 per annum.

Well, that'll certainly help towards the £200k annual debt that the previously profitable SMC has mysteriously incurred since the Allams took over in 2010.

Time to look at the small print!

Is that for any amount of pics?

Maybe one 6ft x 4ft of JW would only be a tenner!

Value for money ?

Sadly i think this is more a personal vendetta against AP and from what i heard was very much to do with the rights of ownership of the lease for Hull FC to play at the KC which is why i suggested you Hull FC fans do a bit of digging.QQ When AP bought the club from KH any idea how much monies were involved and what he actually paid for:)CM

I know there was a seven-figure image rights bill from HMRC that shed not told him about!

To be fair it's not a secret! You me and everyone else knows about it, he'd have to have some pretty incompetent lawyers doing his due diligence for them not to have known about it

It's not my battle, but if I were a FC fan, I'd go to the next match with photos of Johnny Whiteley and some blutak (or superglue/sellotape) and stick them up in the JW room and anywhere else.

If the fans kept doing that for every match, I think the powers that be would give in after a while.

Well I was hoping the Hull Daily Mail would have a bit more balls about them and stick up for one of our city's sporting heroes a bit more than just running a story about it for one day. Quite frankly, it's outrageous that the SMC want to charge for this. It's the tip of the iceberg with regards to what the Allams are doing to try and get hold of the stadium.

Since the Hull Daily Mail won't sway, and Hull FC apparently can't say anything about the agreement (but apparently the SMC can, which basically means Hull City can but Hull FC can't... that's fair!), maybe our friendly rugby papers could do something? I reckon if League Express ran a story on it, and they offered a free Johnny Whiteley mask made of card in the paper, their sales intake in Hull would be huge for that week!

Just have a quick whip round, thats not a great amount to raise and anything over you can give to a charity of Johnny Whiteleys choice.

Allams have now said they're considering handing control of the SMC back to the Council.

Everytime they release a statement, it sounds like it's from a different party.

Turns out the HDM got that wrong (shock). £500 per picture per annum and only on match days.

Basically the SMC are trying to find new ways to plug the loss of income. Instead of trying to find new avenues to bring in money, they're trying to extort the current tenants. Since one of the tenants is owned by the same people as the SMC, that leaves us!

Whether it's 5 pence or 500 quid if our club have told them to ram it then I'm 100% behind them.
