Mascot fired over lingerie calendar shoot

June 9, 2011 at 1:17 PM   |   Comments

DONCASTER, England, June 9 (UPI) -- The woman who portrays the mascot for Britain's Doncaster Rovers soccer team said she was angry to be fired after posing in lingerie for a charity calendar.

Tracy Chandler, 40, said she was fired via e-mail from portraying Donnie Dog at Rovers games by officials who said the pictures reflected poorly on the organization, The Daily Mirror reported Thursday.

"I'm gutted and so angry. I have given so much to them over the past four years and this is how they repay me, fired by e-mail," Chandler said.

She said the decision was hypocritical after players posed for a charity calendar last year wearing nothing but conveniently placed soccer balls.

Rovers officials declined to comment.
