Woah Brutal lay off.

My point was how far are some people gonna take this? In fact you sorta made my point for me.

What the hell does it have to do with the Miami Hurricanes? Nothing.

What the hell does a dance number have to do with a tragic event? Nothing.

It's not the dance. The song is in poor taste.

Let's go play Outkast's "Bombs over Baghdad" for people in Baghdad. As long as we have a dance to go with it, it shouldn't offend anyone...even though 134 died the other day from bombings in Baghdad.

Again, this was a routine played at ALL TB home games not just the NO game and as mentioned by myself and metroid, routines are not easily changed

To be perfectly honest, I think anyone in this cafe in their right mind could make an argument for BOTH sides. Do I think if I were in the shoes of this fan I would've reacted similarly? No, but I'm in Cincinnati, where the word Hurricane is just a word to me. But, I can see how it would be overlooked by the Bucs AND how this fan could become offended. The only solution I can see is that the Bucs apologize and that be the end of it. It really is a case of one party not really using its head to prepare and the other party not being reasonable enough to know that it wasn't meant to be a personal attack on the citizens of NO.

I agree the song was in poor taste, but its just a crappy song. Relax.

If your trying to find someone to argue political correctness with your barking at the wrong dude.

I wonder if the same guy got pissed off when the halftime show consisted of little kids running across the field putting on pieces of uniform until they got to the other side and was declared a winner.

"Winner? They're a winner? Well you know who's a loser? People who were affected by the hurricane! I know there are kids who have no extra clothes! They coulda used that jersey or those football cleats in that halftime show! This is disgusting!"

So this guy is saying that hot cheerleaders dancing to a song(that happens to have the word hurricane) was inappropriate.


The Bucs cheerleaders are probably the best ;-D

No, the Lions win it! Oh, wait, damn Fords! If we can't watch a real football team, at least give us some entertainment :-[ I'm done venting ;-)
