    Titans, T-Rac go unpunished
    Thursday, August 17, 2006
    By Jimmy Smith

    JACKSON, MISS. -- The NFL will take no disciplinary action against the Tennessee Titans or their raccoon-costumed mascot for a golf cart accident that injured Saints reserve quarterback Adrian McPherson at halftime of last week's exhibition game in Nashville.

    The cart, being driven by T-Rac, the Titans' mascot, slammed into McPherson just before the start of the second half as McPherson was attempting to field a punt during warmup drills.

    McPherson suffered a deep bruise on his right knee cap and has been unable to practice since.

    The league's football operations department investigated the mishap but deemed no punishment was necessary for either the team or the mascot.

    "Ray Anderson (the NFL's senior vice president of football operations) sent a memo to all the clubs this week reminding of the policy in place relating to mascots, that mascots must stay behind the six-foot white border (surrounding the football field) at all times," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Wednesday.

    "Also, that mascots are prohibited in engaging in taunting any players, coaches or game officials."

    Aiello said that this is the first time that any team's mascot had been involved in such an incident.

    "The clubs were reminded, and also put on notice, that the teams employing mascots that violate the rules are subject to fines going forward," Aiello said.

    Saints coach Sean Payton said Monday he felt there was a need to better define the field of play so that athletes remain safe.

    McPherson estimates he could be out for up to two weeks. He has done only conditioning work since returning to camp.

    It appears to me that McPherson has no choice but to take out a contract on the mascot.

    Saints | McPherson getting second opinion
    Fri, 18 Aug 2006 05:31:11 -0700

    Randy Rosetta, of the Advocate, reports New Orleans Saints QB Adrian McPherson (knee) spent Thursday, Aug. 17, in New Orleans getting a second opinion on his injured knee. The injury was diagnosed as a knee bruise, but McPherson hasn't been able to straighten his right leg since the incident. "He's having his second opinion done in New Orleans (Thursday)," head coach Sean Payton said. "Maybe he gets more information. Maybe we get more information."

    I agree that a mascot with a large headress should not be allowed to drive anything with a motor, or even ride a bicycle.

    But it was funny as he!!. [img width=32 height=20]http://img116.exs.cx/img116/1231/z7shysterical.gif[/img]

    I've heard that the contract is already out.

    Re: Mascot walks.

    If your team is called the Titans why do you have a racoon for a mascot??
    Wouldn't you have something more Titan like?
    ???

    Re: Mascot walks.

    How fast was T-Rac going in the golf cart, is what I want to know?
    Besides that mascot looks nothing like a raccoon, it looks more like an overgrown house cat.
