I can see Dinger being renamed as his name can be easily confused for a racial slur. I think the gender and race neutral name of Mascot should be utilized for every team, no names to get confused, nothing to offend anyone. Unless of course someone looks into the roots of the word being "Lucky Charm" which as we all know the cereal uses a rainbow in their advertising, so maybe this proposed name change would tick of the LGBTQ community.
Who knows, it's all pretty ridiculous to me overall. The news organizations reporting on this and Tony Clark should be sued for slander or libel depending on the medium utilized.
