It's causing a stink around town, just curious what others thought.

Here is a local guys rant about it on youtube (some language):

It doesn't offend me, but I'm not one who gets offended easily. I can see how some would be offended by it though.

Life is too short to worry about stuff like this imo. People have too much free time it seems.

I'm not offended but I didn't like what he said.
No offense to the team but I thought it was in poor taste.

I've grown to have his attitude unfortunately.

If it wasn't for the name of the team and the logo, nobody would've ever known they existed. It's marketing genius.

I think it's stupid, we're all being used for the sake of publicity. He knew from the get-go what he was doing and he's pleased about the publicity generated. The name's stupid, the idea's stupid, but it's just a name and an idea. Deliberately picking it to piss people off in the name of publicity is an asshole move.

Seriously, would anybody be Ok with the team name of "The Pickton Pig Farmers"? Have a mascott of evil looking pigs with fangs?

I don't really like the name myself, but I have better things to do with my time then complain about something so stupid. This town is already a joke worldwide, might as well add to the pile.

That started long before the baseball controversy:

And then there's our tourist-attraction downtown, where they hacked down the living trees and replaced them with gaudily painted metal ones.

Silly London. The trees were my favourite (stupid) thing until this Rippers nonsense.
