The Philadelphia Flyers announced the arrival of a brand new mascot today. Gritty will be present at all home games and the general reaction was probably a little bit different to what the team had hoped. The orange and clad fans took to social media to voice their confusion, disagreement and even upset. But this is Philadelphia and after all this is a mascot designed to bring a fun element to games for the younger generation. With that in mind, we asked our loyal followers of @PhiladelphiaSN to give their reactions using only a gif. Below are some of the most iconic responses.





As we can see, there was a mixed reaction. Hopefully ‘Gritty’ will continue to make friends throughout the year and even after a hostile welcome, he’s wasted little time winning over the die-hards…
