Packers Won’t Bring Cheerleaders To Super Bowl

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers won’t be bringing cheerleaders or other home-game promotional groups to the Super Bowl in Texas.

The St. Norbert College and University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s cheerleading squads serve as the Packers’ cheerleaders at home games.

Team spokesman Aaron Popkey says the cheerleaders, the Tundra Line, DJ Malcolm and the Ambassador Line are unique to Lambeau Field and are not involved in road games.

The cheer squads have performed since the team disbanded its squad in the 1980s.

Ann Rodrian, UW-Green Bay cheer coach, tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette the cheer teams were invited to the two Packers Super Bowls in the 1990s, but that they had to raise most of their own funding.

Rodrian says the Packers told her the role of squads had changed since then.

      Agreed…seems odd to me that they would leave a critical component of their team out….

    Slow news day.

    What a great way to show America what the Packer’s are. They are a community team. Their Cheerleaders work really hard being Cheerleaders they lead cheers, stunt and dance.

    Holy Smokes! If this is what cheerleaders look like in Green Bay I might have to do the unthinkable, become a packer fan and hit up a game sitting on the sideline!

  5. GIRLS says:

    I’m with GOMER! If any of the GB cheerleaders need someone to keep them warm for the game…..I would be HAPPY to help!

  6. JMH says:

    They are not PACKER cheerleaders they are University cheerleaders that are allowed to cheer at home games. The Packers don’t have cheerleaders — publicly funded teams pay for football players not cheerleaders.

  7. Gary says:

    If the Packers are ashamed of their cheerleaders, they shouldm’t be expected to show them to the world.
