    1. RJM says:

      Well, apparently you cared enough to read the article and comment!

    2. Aunya says:

      I can honestly say I do! The best part of the game is watching the little hotties!

  2. George Bush says:

    I wonder if they are accepting men.

    Kooky Purple – I love how people who obviously have no clue about professional sports come out of the wood work to comment when a team has one down year. I bet you were right in front of your TV screaming during that Saints/Vikings NFC Championship game? Or what about the other 2 NFC Championship games they have played in since 1999? A lot of NFL franchises and fans would kill for that excitement. True they can’t win the big one, but at least they entertain us most years. Going into last year, the Vikings won more NFC North titles than the Bears and Packers combined! GET A CLUE HOMEBOY!!

    They had guys in 1987 and 1988…great addition to the game, in my opinion.

  6. Johnson says:

    Isn’t Fantasy Football all about the bush league on the sidelines?

  7. Kathy Haack says:

    Too big of a Packer fan to even give trying out a thought! 🙂

    1. YA Tittle says:

      Kathy – When you say “too big”, I think we all know what you mean. We’ve seen Packer fans on TV….

  8. James says:

    Men in tights and Women shaking those pom poms, not that anybody can hear or even see them in most seats. Back to the men in tights… HA!
