i completely 100% agree with comments 1 && 4. The superindendant dwas not even fully aware of what was going on. it was the athletic director (FULLER) who made the decision and Golde went along with it. The team offered to support themselves with no school support money and they still turned these young children down. How are you going to turn down a program becuase of budget cuts when they offered to pay.. and FULLER still said no. there is something very shady going on behind all this... and Comment number one has deffenetly hit it right on topic.

Honestly, I don't know which of these is a bigger soap opera: kiddie 'sports' or volunteer fire/EMS ?

All that intrigue & emotional hype in both, and none of it has anything to do with the original purpose.

Running a jack hammer is hard too, Not a sport. Climbing large trees with few branches, Very hard. Not a sport.Running a working farm by yourself, Very, very Hard. Not a sport. Also cheerleading wasn't cut was it? They will still have it at sporting events, just not the compitions right? Also choosing football players is a sorry excuse. Lets see these "Athletes" that competively cheerlead run a long cross-country practice or finish a grueling two hour wrestling practice. Then I will consider them athletes maybe (Or not)

Brian Fuller just wants his business to stay alive so he cut one of the biggest things in his way other than the other AMAZING cheer and dance organization in erie...well him, his wife, and palermo have no clue what is coming their way!!! Like if they thought this was gonna bring M-C-D more business they are highly mistaken it is for sure back firing on them

I have nothing against cheerleading, but I do get tired of parents comparing cheerleading with football. You state that the football players practiced with the cheerleaders and that they didn't last. I have an idea have the girls suit up and play football against another team. You really think the girls are as tough as the boys, apparently you have never been hit by a 200lb lineman. Quit the stupid comparison. One side note, last year the NCAA stated that cheerleading cannot be considered a sport and therefore are not entitled to the same through title IX.

Quit the "stupid" comparison?? Ha!!

Apparently, you're unaware that your big idea for making your own "stupid comparison" is already a reality!!

Unfortunately, the only "stupid comparison" is your own!!

Reality? So the Erie Illusion plays football against men. What planet are you on? They play against other women. I didn't say they couldn't play football but they certainly can't compete or play against men. Are you really kidding me? What a stupid statement you made. I was talking about cheerleaders being compared to football players. What a JOKE.

I agree with everyone--we can't compare YET all the practice those kids do along with showcasing the school spirit & pride--why not let them compete? All other sports do..at the tax payers expense--YET THEY DON'T! They pay for their own transportation, meals, competition fees, and hotels accomidations. So what's the problem?? oh I know..Michelle Fuller won't give it up..unless honey bunny hurts the kids who won't cheer for her crappy team.
oh and you've gotta love Millcreek--what other school district would keep a teacher who made terroristic threats towards kids b/c they made fun of her Ms. Temptation Award--whore.

SO if women cant comepete with men then they cant play a sport?

Not sure if there is one sport that women can compete with men and win in.

So what the hell are you talking about.

Erie Illusion average 40 fans a game which are friends and partners. A cheerleading competition only entertains parents and grandparents. A good old McDowell - Prep rivalry game brings in 6000 - 9000 people depending where it is played. Revenue people - revenue!!!!

Of course, they play against women. Duh!!

Why do they have to play against men for your "stupid comparison"??

For comparison sake, though, since you're still stuck on "stupid comparisons" what difference does it make whether they play against men or women?? There are plenty of 200 pound linebackers on the women's teams!!

The person that made a comment that the "girls" had the football team work out with them and they quit half way through. As if the girls were stronger and better that the guys. Why do some people always compare cheerleading or band competition with the football team. It's comparing apple to oranges. No matter if they have 200 pound women on that all womens so called football team they can't compete with the mens football team. Quit comparing girls cheerleading and the football players.

People, People, People, please read what danm wrote. She is the one that was comparing the cheerleading squad with the boys football team, not me. I love women's sports especially Lady Vols basketball, but I don't compare them to the men's team. I don't know how you read that I don't think girls can play sports. Cheerleading is not considered a sport. That doesn't mean that I don't consider it a sport. I think they work really hard, I just don't think you can compare cheerleading to full contact football. How danm thinks the the girls work harder because the boys football team didn't finish the work out with them. I don't know maybe I'm not getting my point across. Why is danm trying to compare girls cheerleadig to the boys football team?
