Sixer's New Mascot

Oh joy what a selection! Whoever the marketing firm is...seriously? This is disgraceful IMO. Can't believe u get paid as much as you probably do for this extraoridnary out of the box thinking.

My eyes hurt

Now here's a great way to make money:

1. Start a marketing firm

2. Get the fans to vote on one of three mascot pictures you made on photoshop.

3. Get paid hundreds of thousands. Nice.

All of them are kinda dumb if you ask me.

I JJUST saw this on my

I JJUST saw this on my Facebook and was going to make a thread about this bro lol

No way I want a fat creepy looking (ProudGrandpa maybe) as our mascot so #1 is out of the option

#3 looks like the mentally challenged cousin of the Buck's mascot

#2 I guess is the best of the three but a dog doesn't rep our city like that.

I agree, the marketing on this one is atrocious lol. We need something whacy and awesome like the Philly Phanatic!

I honestly preferred Hiphop.

I honestly preferred Hiphop. But apparently he scared the kids. Hiphop was a G.

Ben Franklin reminds me of Jerry Sandusky

The Dog is probably my favorite but B. Franklin Dogg is a stupid name and I don't understand the relevance what so ever.

The Moose...im just completely lost.

So a rabbit with glasses

So a rabbit with glasses scares the kids but a 60-year old, pot-bellied mascot was a good idea...

and again, get rid of the dope rabbit....for a big ass moose, makes sense...

The Dogg wins, but just because the others eliminate themselves

They made such a great

They made such a great decision dumping those ugly black blue red and gold jerseys and back to the classic red white and blues. But wow these ideas are atrocious... a fat old man in a wig, mcgriff the crime dogs cool cousin and the big gay smiling moose.. smh

The moose in the robe was

The moose in the robe was awesome. Lol. This is terrible. HipHop did kind of look like the rabbit from Donnie darko. Honestly though, name something that makes sense for the sixers. It's not easy.

omg

I am calling my rep tomorrow and telling him to drop my season tickets lol. This is pathetic. I'd much rather just say forget the mascot and just roll with the Sixers Dancers. What little kid doesn't like hot chicks?

I could come up with plenty

I could come up with plenty of things for the Sixers...

Green Man

A patriot...not an old ass version of Ben Franklin

A cannon

Seriouslty a cheesesteak would have made more sense

A firework

Bill of Rights...a rolled up bill with a mean right hook

Dr. J

Just use The Philly Phanatic

Sixers' new mascot

All I have to say is Ben Franklin (I think it's him...) with the Sixers' jersey is pretty awesome!

I always thought Hip-Hop the bunny was the worst looking mascot ever since I saw him in my player in 2k12....

I don't know what is worse,

I don't know what is worse, the drawings of the mascots or the paragraphs written for a kindergartener under each one. Is this for real?

As a life long Philly

As a life long Philly resident and Sixers fan I am both appaud and angered at this. For one the description of Ben Frank basically says they dug him out of the grave to be in the voting for the next mascot which is beyond disrespectful to one of this countries founding fathers and the rest have nothing to do with Philly or the Sixers. They're better off going with a big a$$ liberty bell with arms and legs then this.

Hip Hop is the perfect mascot for this team and its not that he scares kids, if anybody saw the Eagles mascot Swoop now he scares kids, but its because they are tryna to put a different image then Hip Hop culture for the organization. But this is Philadelphia the new owners are gonna learn this the hard way when Mike Vick shows up to one of the games and gets all PTSD and kills the Ben Frank Dog.

Holy hell, I just laughed out

Holy hell, I just laughed out loud at my job over here. I'm sorry philly but i voted for Pedo Ben Franklin, being a fan of an opposing team i see this as a slight swing in our favor when we visit.
