Thunder the mascot has been fired!!!!

Via Golden State of Mind:
No, Thunder, you haven't been benched. It's much, much worse than that.

The Golden State Warriors much beloved mascot, Thunder, has been fired. Why? Because of us. Because of us and our having to have an extremely stupid nickname. Why not just name ourselves the lightning and avoid this altogether?

But no. We all had to follow the Daily Dissapointment's (AKA, the Oklahomans) stupid write in contest, where they predicted the names and we just followed along like mindless cattle. And so did the people who own the team.

I've heard from a few sources that the people who would normally approve the logo were left out of the process, and the management eschewed them in favour of taking "Thunder" and running with it.

Now, the least that they could do would be to re-hire Thunder. Thunder is a great mascot, and they don't need to repeat the debacle of the name and uniforms with a mascot debacle. Sure, Warrior fans will hate us even more, but it's better to start a good rivalry with another fan base rather than to have your own fan base hate you.

Start the movement now! The revive Thunder movement!

Bring the Noise!
