Oh yeah, and it also sounds like your average Boeing 777 on takeoff.

No trouble.

But yeah, i can understand cheerleading from a professional dancing standpoint, in that it's better to dance in front of people than an empty gym. The TV show about the Warriors cheerleaders last year affirmed that view.

There were cheerleaders when i first started going to the Warriors. Then they disappeared for a few years and they came back last year.

It actually does improve the pre-game experience. Instead of going through some silly competition and sitting and waiting for 10 minutes for the teams to come out there is constantly something happening.
Unless I'm grossly mistaken, I at least haven't seen cheerleaders in the international rugby fixtures - which is all I get to see nowadays. Obviously tournaments below that level are another story.

Now, I just think cheerleading is rubbish. It looks daft and appeals to the most base demographic. If you want to do professional dancing, go do something that can be taken seriously. Cheerleading's like coming to Melbourne University and taking the course entitled "Great Moments In Australian Sport". Come the fuck on.

Super 14. The Blues cheerleaders are used as a major advertising point. I agree that in terms of it being professional dancing, it is to be laughed at. Professional dancing = fine. Cheerleading as professional dancing = you're having a laugh.

I feel better about it knowing the Warriors don't rely on advertising cheerleaders to pull people to games.

Fuck that. I don't think i've ever seen the Warriors advertising.

I agree with you! I don't hate any U2 song, but there is some I like less. Why do so many people use the word hate, hate is such a strong word.

Bono's voice is bad?

He must read these threads.

Yeah, as I said, levels below international are another story. I wasn't sure if you just meant Super 14 or the NPC too. I haven't seen an NPC game in ... possibly seven or so years.

Are the Blues getting desperate or something?

I'm disappointed. No mention of the high C.

And 23-16 with less than a minute to go.

I guess my instinct of not betting was the right one.

If the Warriors had retained their form from late last year they would be outdrawing the Blues right now, mark my words.

So yeah, they're a bit desperate.

That's what you call a high scoring round.

My computer just beeped. There is nothing happening post-beep that makes me think there was any good reason for it.
