Cheerleading! Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down? (pg.6)

Cheerleading! Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down? (pg.6) - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Kidzworld recently did some trash talking about cheerleading. We called cheerleaders stupid and snobby. But a lot of peeps say cheerleading is the bomb and think cheerleaders get a bad rap. - Page 6

1 I think cheerleaders totaly suck! I mean if you think that cheering is actually a sport you must be on something because a monkey could stand there and wave around those pom-poms and call itself a cheerleader!

1 I'll have you know first of all that I am a cheerleader and I happen to have over a 4.0 GPA with honors. Cheerleaders are by no means stupid and are among the most well-behaved and smart girls in the class. It is very hard to make the squad, and I would like to see you attempt a round-off back handspring back tuck, or even a simple toe-touch or pike jump. Cheerleading is not all fun and games children and it's time you learned that.

1 I don't know why people don't think cheerleading is a sport. I mean how should they know how much work we have to do anyways unless they were a cheerleader? I don't even know why people dislike cheerleaders so much anyways, it's like we never did anything to anybody? And people need to get things right because I'm obviously not dumb because I have been on the A HONOR ROLL now for years! We are never snobby - I just think people are jealous.

1 Cheerleaders have to practice year round to be ready for a comp. I don't think that you should be dissin' cheerleaders. You say that cheerleaders are snobs? Who are you to talk when you sit there and make fun of them? You bust your butt off for hours trying to do what we do and we'll see if you last. My squad practices for 5 hours on saturday, four on sunday and two hours every single weekday. Cheerleaders need to be dedicated and my whole cheerleading squad are nowhere near being snobby.

1 I am a mascot at a junior high in texas. Our cheerleaders kick butt and I think your article is hanus, racist and very sexist. We would very much appreciate this article being removed. They give scholarships for cheerleading so I think it is considered a sport and something that most people find very hard. Thank you for putting down alot of cheerleaders.

1 I LOVE cheerleading. We are not elite and it is sooo fun because everyone can do the moves! Cheerleaders are not snobby at all. One girl couldn't do it though cause she didn't fit into the clothes we needed for our uniforms (She was way too heavy.) We have fun

Cheerleading - Is it Really a Sport?

  • Yes, cheerleaders are better athletes than most football players.
  • No, it's just a pastime for brain-dead, snobby girls.
  • Of course it is
  • Who cares...

CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
