San Francisco - Bay area resident Alex Rogan has announced his intention to take his support of his English Premier League team, West Ham United FC, to the next level and at the same time restructure his long-term investment strategy. We met with Alex to discuss his intentions.
“I’ve been a huge West Ham fan for a number of years now ever since I saw that IT Crowd episode where Roy pretends to be a huge soccer fan. Hammers forever! Well I’ve decided that I need to step up my support for them as buying scarves and paying ridiculous shipping charges just isn’t going to do it anymore. I need to directly affect their bottom line and help to bring in the best talent possible. The way I see it is that the best way to do this is to support their sponsor, Betway.com.”
Betway.com is an online betting company that provides services to bet on sports and casino games and whose sponsorship deal was the biggest that West Ham has ever had in their history.
“If I want the Hammers to get more money and more talent I’m going to have to support Betway so they’ll stick around as sponsors. Therefore I have decided to go all in and put my money where my heart is. I cashed out my 401k and have been placing bets on all the West Ham games this year.”
West Ham have lost three out of their first four games this season.
“Some will say that I’m down $20,000 in savings, but I don’t really see it that way. I see it as I’m up £12,740 in support for my team. Everyone says that they live or die by their team but how many of them can say that they’ll retire or not retire by their team? That’s support. Hammers forever!”
We contacted the West Ham front office to get their take on this most recent development and the official response was “What a pillock.”
Nutmeg News will continue to report on any future developments.
