Bring back Claret & Amber

This petition had 6 supporters

As a life long Motherwell FC fan I find it unacceptable that our most loved and well known mascots have been replaced by a "steelman" that looks no more like a steelman but more of a comic book character.  Whilst I admire the creativity of the young people involved.  I cannot help but think that we are throwing two much loved and well known wee Bears (Claret and Amber) on the scraphead.  These mascots have come to represent the traditions that we have come to love and know so well at this family club.  Not only are the bears named after the clubs colours but they also represent the young girls and boys (one being male and the other female) and assist in providing a fun carnival experience for both young and old alike with their antics.  I think that the club are doing themselves a disservice in getting rid of the old mascots in favour of a new trendy comic book style character and I am sure you will agree with me in that both Claret and Amber should be re-instated as they are icons of the Motherwell FC history - more so than some of the players.
