The idea of having a Pottermiss came from the idea of the 'original' Pottermiss!(who is longer available)
Also I would guess that all of you are too old to appreciate what an important part of a matchday for the young kids that the two Hippos are, thats all part of growing up............and honestly some of you WILL grow up!

as on the 'everything else' forum, you will see that, i have passed my refereeing course *claps* and im prety sure that linesman, o sorry assistant referees can not send players off, but then again, pottermuss isnt a player, and to be perfectly honest i havent got a clue what the dea is with masscots, we havent come accross that.
but netherless, you cant get confused between a hippo and a player can you, if you do you shouldnt be in the game, saying that a fair % of referees and referees assistnats arent fit to be in the game

Whatever happened to...Hippo?
AS MUCH of football mourns the passing of 'Gentle Giant' John Charles we at The Oatcake would like to commemorate the passing of one of our own great club institutions- The Hippo! After years of entertaining the fans at the Britannia Stadium we now have to concede that Hippo is dead (in the entertainment aspect of things) and should be laid to rest peacefully before he, and we, suffer any more. We can treasure the memories of his goal celebration with Graham Kavanagh, his constant run-ins with referees and linesmen, his hysterical baiting of opposing fans and his wonderful clashes with opposing mascots. All moments of pure comedy gold- especially the incident where he stole the Nuneaton Borough mascot's head and legged it around the running track with it in his hand while the headless Nuneaton dog chased after him. It all started to go wrong when the man inside the costume was tempted away by more money to Wolves and the final nail in the coffin was provided by the introduction of Hippopottermiss. Just like that brat Scrappy-Doo ruined the legendry Scooby-Doo, so a new character at the Britannia Stadium finally saw to the sad demise of our own little legend. Farewell Hippo, you will be missed.
Ah nooky bear, my nan had a puppet of him when i was very young.
Theres a bloke who always goes into Creation who is the stunt double of Bob Carolgees, in fact one nite while i was in the DJ dock the DJ spotted him and did the spit noise, the guy has clearly heard it before. He didn't look amused! I was ;D
