Again Denying Any QPR Name Change Plan

The Independent
"...Ecclestone tries to calm QPR fans' fears
Supporters of Queen's Park Rangers football club say they see a lot of Flavio Briatore around the club's West London home, but very little of his co-owners, Lakshmi Mittal and Bernie Ecclestone.
Maybe so, but that doesn't mean the Formula One tycoon isn't tetchy about reports which claim that he and his business partners are planning to change the side's name to Queen's Park City.
"No, No. Don't believe everything you read in the papers," he told me at the recent launch of Form menswear at Harrods. "Who's saying that anyway? It can't be true."
His comments might keep his club's patrons happy for now, but he'll need to reach into his famously deep pockets to keep the wolves from the door. They're also moaning about the recent hike in season ticket prices." Independent
