She can come watch it at my place.

She quit, but it's not fair they didn't think she was still coming to work and replaced her?
 
2013-01-30 11:30:30 AM
Debbie Kammerer, 52, of Pasadena, Md. created an online petition that has already has surpassed 1,200 signatures. She is so angry, she says she is considering not attending the game herself.

"We're just angry," Kammerer said. "She was 57th among the hottest NFL cheerleaders this season. People want to burn their jerseys and don't want to support the Ravens anymore. My heart isn't even wanting to go. I could save $3,500. This is totally wrong."


i umm... what the fark is going on even. I'm gonna say this one time. If you want to burn your jersey because your team has treated one of their cheerleaders poorly, then just leave the sporting culture forever and ever amen.

Look, if you quit your job before the project is done don't expect to be let back on at the last minute when it's doing really well. She could have announced her retirement, but kept cheering though the playoffs and there wouldn't be an issue.

I was thinking that, but I think Baltimore was on the road throughout the playoffs. I don't think NFL cheerleaders do away games (except the SB, of course).

She's still a moron.

Well, of course. She's too skinny and was caught using performance enhancing drugs. Apparently she borrowed Ray Lewis' "bag of antlers" spray.

She was 57th among the hottest NFL cheerleaders this season.

There's an NFL cheerleader hotness list? Why does a 52-year-old woman know this and I don't? Did anyone else know there was a list?
 
2013-01-30 02:05:15 PM
It's going to be tough with only 3 recievers then.
 
2013-01-30 02:05:55 PM
She accuses the Ravens of not allowing her to cheer in retaliation for quitting.

That's dividing by zero.
 
2013-01-30 02:08:50 PM
The team has 60 members. They are only allowed to bring 32 to the game. Nearly half the team has to stay home.

I'm trying really hard, but I just can't seem to muster a fark to give over this.

This. And that's not including the fact that it's just a cheerleader. It's not like any of them have any influence on the game itself.

Yeah, and the petition would basically make one of the already selected cheerleaders not be able to go, which is not fair to them. Sometimes you just have to say them' the breaks and get over it

My aunt was a cheerleader for the Broncos during the Elway era. The Superbowl is a big event for the cheerleaders too, who also get Superbowl rings if their team wins.

FYI -- The ring is different from the one the players have though, because a players ring would not fit on a woman's hand.

I've only ever been to one Cardinals game, and I'll never go again. For a franchise that has accomplished so little, their fans are truly obnoxious. I've been to stadiums all over the country, and Cardinals fans were so astonishingly rude that I vowed never to go back to U of Phx stadium.

Sorry, man. As a Cards fan who only went to a game because I got free tickets from one of the local casinos, I'll just say that I don't plan on going to a game again. The stadium PA sounded terrible. I can't handle being around that many drunk people for that long. And don't get me started on the restrooms.

This is why you never announce your future intentions with your employer. They always expect two weeks when you want to quit, but most of the time you don't get jack squat when you're fired.

Silly cheerleader learned a valuable lesson--never "retire" from a fun job until you're sure the season is over.

/I'm lucky, though. People made redundant, as the British say, from where I work get 1-week's pay for every year you've been here. I've been here 17 years.

Sooo....that's pretty much every stadium in the NFL. It amuses me when the NFL worries about why attendance is going down. "Dealing with drunk assholes" doesn't even cross their radar. If they limited beer sales to the 1st quarter only, and enforced a no drunkenness policy, then I think you would see true fans who enjoy the game buy tickets again.
 
2013-01-30 02:58:26 PM
One of my biggest pet peeves are people who think that they are entitled to things. She had a job cheering for the team, she did it for 5 years, she quit, and now she feels that she's entitled to go to the Superbowl. Why didn't she wait until after the playoffs to quit? I'll tell you why-- because there was virtually no chance that the Ravens would host a playoff game and she didn't think they'd make it to the Superbowl. That means no more cheering. And I really don't get how she feels it is a slight to her. She quit. It's like if I quit my job a month ago and then got upset when I wasn't considered for a promotion today.

Altitude5280: Her team is going to lose anyway.


Nah. Ravens will win it. Broncos had a better defense than the 49ers and the Ravens beat them, and the Patriots had a better offense than the 49ers and the Ravens shut them down. Don't get me wrong, it will be close and can go either way. But people are talking as if the Ravens have no shot.
 
2013-01-30 03:12:45 PM
You don't announce your retirement from cheerleading; you just quit. There's no need for an announcement. Nobody gives a shiat.
 
2013-01-30 03:14:24 PM
Count me in as those amongst the "who gives a shiat?" crowd. This biatch just wanted a free pass to an event she'll never otherwise be able to afford to attend.

"I'm retiring. Waitaminnit, we're going to the freaking SUPERB OWL? Can I UNretire and bring along a half dozen or so of my free loading friends?"

"No"

cry me a river. Media outlets will run with any story with the words "Superb Owl" in it in the two weeks prior to the game.

So, I'm a little closer to this article than most due to the fact that I know a few of the male and female cheerleaders on the team.

The woman signed a contract stating that there were certain goals which she would need to fulfill, and she didn't do it. Go read the Facebook page, she openly admits to gaining weight and not attending all events. Her primary complaint is that she has a full time job, but so do many of the other cheerleaders who are able to make it. Sorry, keep crying.

As a female sports fan, I usually don't get harrassed at games, regardless of which team I'm supporting. I'm not obnoxious in my cheering and don't think you should be assaulted just because you have the audacity to like the other team.

I do agree with you regarding the alcohol sales and having a policy against drunkenness. The thing that really keeps true fans from games, however, is cost. I only went to that Cardinals game because my employer gave me tickets. It's just too expensive to go to games, at least if you want to sit close enough to see anything.

I know a devout Redskins fan who will say things like "I can't wait go go to the game. I am going to get drunk, go there, find some kid wearing [the opposing team's jersey] and farking yell at him until he cries."

From my experience, the drunken assholes ruin the experience. Considering cost/value, the prospect of dealing with fools is not a good value. I would pay some good money to see Seattle come to Washington, but only if I were assured that the fans wouldn't harass, cajole, threaten, and so on. There's no assurance there, so no $$$ for Snyder.

I live about 5 miles away from The Iron Pigs, the Phillies affiliate team. It's a great time and they allow you to bring your dogs during certain events. Wonder why they don't have cat night? Wait, I know, it's because they don't f'n listen and would run away forever.

Well, since it was a Cardinals game in December, the outcome of the football game was irrelevant and the home team was likely getting curb-stomped. Why not watch the cheerleaders?

I meant hot dogs, but we do have nights where you can bring Fido to the park.

It's interesting that you mention the Iron Pigs.

I moved here from Allentown (actually New Tripoli) a few years before the Iron Pigs existed. When I left PA, the Phillies Triple A team was the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons. The last time I was home for vacation, I went to visit one of my A-Town friends (actually Emmaus), and she took me to an Iron Pigs game. It was great fun.

I've also seen the R-Phils play at First Energy. At that time, you could pay $25 and get pool tickets that included all you can eat food. I think they've changed the name to the Fighting Phillies or something.

Good times.

Won't work. At least half the crowd is getting drunk before the game at the tailgate parties and such.

This.

I imagine that there's some sort of policy/understanding that when you retire from the squad you get to work up until the last home game. And the Super Bowl isn't a home game so what did she expect? It's like if I quit a couple weeks before my annual bonus is to be paid, would I *really* expect my former employer would pay it? Heck no.
