  • Parents and fans are too out of control.
  • The games are just too intense.
  • The coaches take the games too seriously.

Cheerleaders don't lift weights, We lift people.. We don't get tackled but we get punched and kicked by our teammates. We don't have an hour long game to prove our skills, we have minutes. When we get hurt we can't be taken out, we keep going.. Does this still seem not a sport?
