Gainer the Gopher isn’t up to date on being politically correct.

Gainer dragged, kicked, threw and hit the stuffed lion between the legs while the Riders were beating B.C. in Week 6. Some fans were less than pleased with Gainer’s antics and because of it the team issued a statement.
“We agree that Gainer took it too far during Saturday’s game against B.C. Lions. We’ve talked to Gainer about it and taken away his stuffed lion.”
