    A giant orange mascot takes a running start and punches a kid at a meet and greet, yet there are no videos, pictures, or witnesses?

    Lol. **** outta here.

    If it's true, why didn't the father tear Gritty's head off and kick the shit out of the guy in the suit? What kind of father lets a goofy mascot beat up his kid in front of him?

    LOL. That picture is hilarious.

    "My name is Gritty, and I'm a violent offender."

    "Gritty, this is the All-Star Game, not Violence Anonymous."

    "Is it? Or is it that you other mascots can't admit that you have a problem?"

    Yeah who will defend the...defenseless...rich corporations...with teams of lawyers on retainer...?

    Individuals already gave an uphill battle when trying to sue a large company, doing what you said would swing the balance too far in the opposite direction and give too much legal protection for large corporations. Nobody would sue companies because of the downside if they lose. Both sides being responsible for legal fees also give incentive for both sides to settle and not clog up the legal system with civil complaints. And lastly, nothing is stopping the Flyers from countersuing if they find the complaint frivolous, but usually in these situations it's in their interest to let the story die rather than carry on a lawsuit where you probably won't get much money and it's a bad look to sue a season ticket holder.

    Let's not base our opinion of the whole system of legal liability on a lawsuit involving f***ing Gritty. We have nearly 250 years of precedent of why it's a good (or less bad) idea that each side pays their own legal fees (in most cases).

    The King Baby was actually the Pelicans thing, not a Baby Cakes thing. The Baby Cakes, to my knowledge, always used Boudreaux even after they changed from the Zephyrs to the Baby Cakes.

    It's right up there with the old version of Pierre. Whomever designs mascot costumes for the Pelicans needs to find a new line of work

    Because everybody knows, nothing says "Arizona hockey" like a Quebecois snowman with a black eye. :laugh:

    Let's be clear:

    This is definitely the kid's fault, no matter what happened.

    This makes me like Gritty even more than before, which I didn't know was possible.

    If I caught Gritty in bed with my wife, I'd knock her off the bed and stay with Gritty.
