Get rid of these bozos already. How stupid do you have to be to be entertained by fat guys dancing?

These clowns are good for a laugh - once.
But I guess its a great scam to see a free game now & then.

Better these guys than Cathy Core and the girls strutting around acting like they are somebody. Love the girls (LB's), however she has a major attitude and thinks she is somebody. This puts her "performance" into perspective. Just another side show, baybay. Ditto Greg Schwartz and the HBD's total farce.

This is the low point of every game, not funny, not entertaining...at the time obesity is #1 problem for American kids.

What a society we live in that finds this entertaining. I could see if the guys had a goal of losing weight and the crowd could see them progress to a healthier lifestyle. But to condone this as entertainment and to write about it as such is sad indeed.

Yo Reinsdorf! Are you reading this. You're insulting your fans with these lardos. Everyone else on the court is fit, why do you insist on grossing us out like we're rubes at the county fair. I get it: They're fat and dancing sarcastically like they're sexy. The break-a-bulls are way more entertaining.

Give these guys a break at least their getting up off their butts having fun. There is alot that goes into these dances excercising, practices etc. Much more than than the comments coming from pencil pushers sitting on their butts reading the tribune comments while at work. Get back to work and get a life. This is all in fun. Taking something like this so serious results in needing a life. So get one.

I think it sends a good message. When I'm at the game and I see these pigs dancing, it makes me think that I shouldn't be eatting hotdogs, ice cream and cotton candy. So, I skip dinner and drink another 12 beers.
Kudos To These Men

I think these guys are great. I am suprised to hear the comments people are saying here. I have been to games and these men are socialable, funny, and just out their having fun, I have gotten pictures with them and they are very crown friendly. So to all of you, eat a cheeseburger and stop commenting about someones weight. Not everyone is so PERFECT in this world.

That is just rude. So hateful. Take some anger management courses.

My oh my what nasty comments on here. I am a Bulls fan which means I love every aspect of the games. The entertainment is exactly what the word means "entertainment" so lighten up, sit back, and just enjoy the show. They are out there feeling good about themselves.

Well, you must be a pencil pusher as well, cause you read this and made a comment. This is gross,it is not funny or even entertainment. You want to see fatties strutt go to the mall and people watch the ladies squeeze into outfits 3 sizes to small and think they look good.

On behalf of the Chicago Bulls Matadors, I'd like to thank all of you who cheer us on when we perform, who stop us to take pictures with us and ask for our autographs, to see the smiles it puts on your faces make our night even better before we perform.

And to have haters like the ones above post messages like that, it must mean we are doing our job. Again God bless and thank you.

Big fat out of shape pigs. Imagine their egos! Imagine what their egos would be like if they were good looking and in shape! Great entertainment choice!

To all of you who are posting negative comments about the Matadors, you need to do one thing: GET A LIFE!!

Me and my son love the Matadors and they regularly take time out to sign autographs and take pictures with us, they are an entertainment group. I suppose if you had your way you would send basketball back to the time when there was no entertainment right?

I have seen these guys perform on "Americas Got Talent" and if you did not know Disney is making a movie about them. They have been on TV, on major Talk shows and these are the same "fat slobs" who got a standing ovation performing overseas in Cyprus and Greece (I was there).

You people have nothing better to do than to ridicule anyone about their weight, who died and made you God? At least when me and my son and the 23,000 2ho pack the U.C. see them perform, they cheer and to be honest, we almost blow the roof off of the United Center. If you don't like it, don't watch it. But don't be pompus asses making statements aabout people who are there at the games to entertain.
