We need to kill off Rufus and get a new mascot asap.
Rufus is the worst. He is like a day glo, mildly racist Guy Fierri, who wears his sunglasses indoors, has a dog's name, and looks like a shitty 90's cliche. He is a mascot with a soulpatch for fucks sake.
We have done away with most of the orange from teams colors, and he is annoying reminder of our past. Now our new team and brand. He sucks and i hate him.
That is all.
Seconded. Always hated Rufus.
In Cho I Trust
other than changing his color i think we should keep rufus. He is really popular among as is among the younger fans.
Go Panthers, Go Bobcats, Go Hurricanes - War Damn Eagle
Personally I think he should be a fat cat ala Sir Purr but cooler than Sir Purr. And he should be grey.
I get it if he is popular eith the kids, but as you maybe can tell he just evokes a desire to trip him every time he runs his orange ass by me down the steps. Maybe just a different kind of glasses and different facial hair to go along with the color change. Maybe a goatee like kimbas?
I never really minded him. I don't know if they'll change his fur color, but gray would be kinda boring for a mascot. I think that's one area where they have liberty to be colorful. I never got all the hate for him. He's for the little kids, anyway. My little brother and sister both love him too.
PLUS! He consistently puts in work for me in NBA Jam. Lmao
Yes. I hate Rufus.
Rufus is maybe the worst mascot of any Pro Sports Team.
I would love to see something entirely different. There is nothing that I like about him.
Kids have like a 10 second memory. Change Rufus tell the kids the new Mascot is his cousin and the kids would love the new one.
For with both the primary and secondary logo switching, it makes sense to get rid of the Orange now.. ( and ditch the dumbass sunglasses)
Still prefer Hugo over anything else but, killing off Rufus and replacing him is better than status quo.
Eh I don't feel either way about Rufus. But I do know if they made him grey, he'd look MAAAAAAD ashy
It was actually pretty fun until EA Sports discontinued online play last year. Now I have no one to play with.
