    For about a dozen games now, Toro quit doing the skits where he drop kicked or body slammed an unruly fan of the opposing team. I know Toro is for the kids, and I don't care much about it, but my wife really liked to see Toro doing these silly things. I wrote the fanfeedback email to complain but they said nothing really. WTF gives?

    I think we must have a new Toro - one that is certainly not comfortable being flamboyant. I miss the old Toro, myself :(

    The previous Toro(s) were much more fun.

    Hell yeah! I've noticed this myself.

    Last time he did something worth getting to the seats early for was during Liberty White Kickoff.

    He repelled from the roof during the Salute to the Military game. I thought that was pretty cool.

    I've been wondering the same thing. The skits were cool before games. Now all he does is ride out on his red ATV. Bring back the cool Toro!!!

    I was curious as well. When I saw him on the sidelines I asked a friend if she thought that was the same Toro. He looked a bit heavier.

    even if its a diff. toro in the costume, I doubt he has much say so in the pregame skits/routine

    Some numbnut probably got offended by the violence he was dishing out.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Probably someone complained their kid went home and drop kicked his sister after seeing Toro do it. Give me a break. Professional football is a violent sport, surely they can't be offended by these things, if so I think they should really reevaluate if football is what they want to take their kids to.
