This weekend's Super Bowl clash between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers will be the first in the game's 45 year history sans cheerleaders.

The Packers and the Steelers are two of the six NFL teams that do not have pom-pom squads, and they haven’t had them in years. The Packers did away with their cheerleaders in 1988 after market research indicated fans didn’t really care, and in 1970 it was an “organizational decision” to dissolve the Steelerettes.

What are the people at the game going to do in the 15 minutes or so between plays? Fan of football here, but HATE the Super Bowl. It is not a game, it is an exhibition in slow motion. I recognize that I am in the minority, but until they return the game to the same rules of football, like 1 minute time outs, 15 minute halftime. Play the game in the time allotted PLEASE!!!!

Agreed. I haven’t watched a Super Bowl since the second Cincinnati-San Francisco matchup.

So you are either a Browns or a Lions fan and never had a chance to see your team in one.
