Panthers to Bring NHL Cheerleading on Par with NFL and NBA

Looks like the Panthers plan to really step up the visibility of those Ice Kats, or whatever they're called now.

http://www.jockstrapsonline.com/pant...erleaders.html

And it sounds like Bettman is firmly behind the Panthers in their efforts to revolutionize cheer-leading on ice.
Quote:
In a move prompted by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, the Panthers are committed to bringing on-ice cheerleading up to par with cheerleaders in the NFL and NBA.

What a stupid freaking move. Sadly enough, people already make fun of us for not being the best hockey market and things like this surely aren't going to help our cause.

Yes all northerners are elitist ... we're all snobs ... we're truly horrible people who should all be taken out back and shot unless they are attractive women then they should be rescued to the south where they can shake their money makers

Here's to hoping for plenty of wardrobe malfunctions because given that they're going to be panther dancers, they probably won't be very good anyways so all the more likely!!!!!



Yea....I'm being very sarcastic in case anyone hasn't noticed in both posts.

I could see it pissing people off. I'll sit on fence and watch in this case.

Oh jeez, humor is misunderstood around here. I couldn't care less about the cheerleader/dancers (money makers comment was a joke) but I stand by my comment about arrogant Northern "elitists" who look down upon the Panthers with disdain. Sure there's exceptions but for the most part, Panthers = joke as far as most other fanbases are concerned and i'm a-ok with that. Go Panthers.

I think these ice dancers, and now cheerleaders, are ridiculous. I liked when they had girls that would shoot the shirts into the stands as they did get the crowd going by launching the shirts, but the cheerleaders are just obnoxious.

Yes when I referred to Northerners I meant every single person outside of the South Florida area, awesome job at catching on.

So to every single person north of Southern Florida, I am very very sorry.

Has anyone actually read the article?!?! Here's a "quote" from Bettman

Quote:
While some NHL teams have put some quality T&A on ice, it's clear we need to upgrade the product league-wide to compete with the more established NBA and NFL cheerleading squads.
Anyone still think it's legit?

You know what I love about this board, is that if someone disagrees with your opinion then they resort to backhanded attacks at your intelligence. So thanks for reminding me of why I stopped posting here.

We stopped taking our family to the Dolphins' games because of the obnoxious comments being made about the cheerleaders (from the fans around us)...if the Panthers' organization is trying to compete with the NFL on lewdness, we'll stop taking the family there as well.

I pay money to see a hockey game. Not T&A on Ice.

And people like YOU are the reason I stopped posting here. You're the one who took my original comment out of context and made it an "attack" on you.

Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess...

The article is fake, it's a "joke news" site.

I hope no one is taking that article seriously. A quick skim can reveal so many things:

Quote:
“Why we only thought of this now is a mystery, but then again, the NHL has never been at the forefront of marketing innovation,” said Bettman during a news conference where he made the announcement. “For years we tried increasing the level of graphic violence, from having goalies go without masks long after the technology was available to making sure every team had at least one thug capable of turning a ten foot radius of ice into a patch of freshly chilled blood.
Bettman's dumb, but he wouldn't say something like that. See if this was the Onion people would get it instantly, heh. They're just picking on the dumb Ice Kat Dancers we have, and frankly there's no reason not to. Even if they are attractive, they look stupid doing what they do. I mean at least learn to SKATE.

Oh well, at least it's not the monks...oh god I just brought that memory back.

I read it again, and feel like a moron. First time, I skimmed it, and didn't even catch the, "For years we tried increasing the level of graphic violence, from having goalies go without masks long after the technology was available to making sure every team had at least one thug capable of turning a ten foot radius of ice into a patch of freshly chilled blood," bit. And just to emphasize the fact that my once alert mind has turned to mush, I blame TV.

I saw the walrus, liked him. He symbolizes my shame.
