Steve Brady: Hull FC memorabilia row 'could have been avoided with a bit of common sense’
CITY council leader Steve Brady says he would welcome talks with the Allam family over the KC Stadium and the SMC.
He said: "I think it has got to a silly situation which could have been avoided with a bit of common sense.
"I believe there should be common sense and reasonableness from all parties concerned in this and the sooner we all sit round the table to discuss things the better.
"What frustrates me is that we have not been able to meet as regularly as we probably should have done. As soon as we can get back to having regular meetings then I am sure we can find a way forward."

Cllr Brady admitted he had only had two meetings with the Allams since becoming council leader two years ago.
However, he said he believed the row over removal of Hull FC memorabilia from the KC Stadium could have been avoided.
"That could, and should, have been handled much better," said Cllr Brady. As it is, the council appears to be getting a kicking, which is unfair when it's really something between the SMC and Hull FC.
"The sooner the Allams and Adam Pearson sort this particular issue out, the better it will be for everyone."
In a statement, the council said it was in correspondence with the SMC to clarify issues raised by the company's statement on its financial problems released earlier this week.
It said: "The council refutes the extent to which the statement suggests it is in any way responsible for the overall financial position of the company."
