Not every idea is fully thought out, in fact most aren't. This goes double for the Adirondack Flames not even former mascot.

Scorch didn't even make it to one game. Just one internet video, introducing him to the world, killed his entire career. That video is no longer available, and I totally get why. Scorch was living fire, and seemed to be the last remaining flame from a fire that blazed through a town. How strong was he? Strong enough to ...incapacitate a fire fighter.

Let's face it, none of that is kid friendly, and most sports want to draw in youths to make them life long fans. The Flames have apologized and are redesigning a more friendly mascot.
