Cheerleader distraction

Postby zirco33 » Mon Sep 24, 2007 9:19 pm

CBS NFL analyst Charlie Casserly reported on today's pregame show that the NFL sent a memo to all 32 teams last week informing them that home teams are not permitted to tell their cheerleaders to warm up, stretch, or otherwise do anything in front of the visiting team's bench that might distract the players before the game.

Apparently there were concerns around the league that some teams had specifically told their cheerleading units to warm up prior to the game right in front of the visiting team, in hopes that the visiting team's players would be too distracted checking out the cheerleaders to pay attention to their coaches' pregame instructions.

No word on whether it's legal to videotape the opposing team's cheerleaders.

You'd swear this a story from 'The Onion', but no...this is really a league action.

This time the Commish's office is being absurd.

This action is discriminatory to teams like the Bears who don't have cheerleaders. Goodell needs to write a memo to Virginia McCaskey that she needs to re-instate the Honey Bears, right NOW.

;-D

The Pats could steal "plays" by videotaping the cheerleaders' "cover two" :-b

Then the league would not be that bright, because not all 32 teams have cheerleaders

Perhaps it would be easier just to put those players that are so easily distracted on Ritalin! ;-) ;-7 :-b

What is it that tightbutt Goodell is trying to say?
Does he seriously think that some hot cheerleader is going to distract an NFL player right before the game? If that is so, what does that say about Goodell's mindset? This guy looks more and more like a Puritanical kook. If there wasn't any money in it, he would probably get rid of all those cheerleading temptresses immediately before the players succumb to their sinful desires.
Seriously, what is he thinking?

He's thinking, "I need to make a really silly ruling that will get the attention off the fact that I handed the Patriots a get out of jail free card by destroying the evidence that would've justified more action against them."

It's better to look like a kook than a conspirator ...

I think Goodell just wants to look at cheerleaders. He's probably going to ask each team with cheerleaders for all their video next.

probably because stuff like this happens.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
