It has been almost 30 years since the Green Bay Packers outfitted an official cheerleading squad in contemporary attire.

"I think our fans are unique in that they don't need a big circus atmosphere," said tight end Ryan Taylor. "Because they're football purists and enjoy the game as is."

There you go.

A couple of years ago one of the college girls was just a little plump. I had to smile. Only in GB could a girl who has probably been teased her whole life stand on one of the biggest stages of the NFL and cheer. Ok not on stage. they are only on the sidelines and an the back of the endzone.

Best Name of a Cheerleader Group: the Rams group was called the Embraceable Ewes.

I suppose we could call ours the Packers Porkers.

for some reason that just doesn't put the same pleasant image in my head as "Embraceable Ewes"


I've got a couple of Old Style beer posters from 1985 and 1986 of the Packers cheerleaders and while they certainly are not porkers they don't don't look much like the squads of today. Most of them look to be in their 30's and 40's and there is even one that looks to be at least 50.

Five NFL teams besides the Green Bay Packers have no official cheerleading squads.

CHICAGO, CLEVELAND, DETROIT, NEW YORK GIANTS, PITTSBURGH:


Is this more proof that the Vikings have to pay the ladies to stick around?

I read the article on CBS and left this reply ...

"Please leave it the way it is. The college cheerleaders are much more fitting for Green Bay. The teams like Cowboys, Raiders, Dolphins and Vikings need professional cheerleaders (dance troupe) to distract from the less than adequate product that they put on the field. As W. C. Fields said ... "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull." "

"The Packers are doing just fine."

So why did the cowboys have cheerleaders when they were winning super bowls? Same with the Dolphins, Raiders and vik... same with the Dolphins and Raiders.

It may be appropriate now but it has not always been the case. Except for the vikings, it has always been more pleasant to watch the vikings cheerleaders.

All those teams have either nice weather or indoor stadiums. GB does not.
