Healthy competition is the name of the game at NCG, Inc. We’d be lying if we told you that we didn’t enjoy some smack talking or throwing down a good challenge here in Trumbull, CT. With many members of our team hailing from athletic backgrounds, it’s only natural for us! In fact, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Competition has been a big key to success in 2016.
We pulled aside one of our trainers, Tom Allen, a former Division 1 soccer player, to hear about his favorite and least teams.
Who is your all-time favorite championship team in any sport?
Hull City in the English premier league. This was the city where I was born and raised in England. Football (soccer) is a huge part of the English culture. When I first started following Hull they were a small club who grew rapidly. I enjoyed supporting them when they were a small club because the fan base felt family-oriented; however, the growth was also nice as I was able to see my team win championships.
What’s one NFL team you would get rid of right now?
I would remove the Cleveland Browns. Their performance has been terrible this year and last year, and I believe it would be time to start a team in London.
What’s one player you cannot stand in any sport?
I cannot stand any athlete who leaves a club for money purposes or cares more about themselves rather than the success of the team. In that case, I would say I cannot stand most NBA players, especially Lebron.
Do you have a favorite player?
David Beckham, he is a hero to all English people. He was a role model on and off the field and carried England to multiple World Cups.
What’s your favorite sports memory of all time?
When David Beckham scored a last-minute free kick against Greece to make the game 2-2 and made England qualify for the World Cup.
What is one sports venue you want to visit before you die?
I want to visit the Camp Nou in Barcelona
Commence response to smack-talking…!!! Do you love Lebron? Tell us!
