    Seriously, I can't wait for these people to be eating their words once they figure out what cheerleading really is. I can only say that they are the epitome of stupid.

    It amazes me how little these people know yet they seem to think they are experts. All of them act like they did their research and know exactly what cheerleading is yet I would bet none of them have ever seen a competitive cheer team in their lives. They should all put their egos aside and try to actually write a somewhat accurate article.

    I read the first article and thought it was terrible...until I read the comments. Seriously? cheerleading prepares teenage girls to be paid less in the workplace? sure..

    Yeah, I commented on the first one. I put a link to whitney love tumbling and said when she could do that, she could talk.

    That was the most narrow minded article I have ever read in my entire life. You would think people would do their research before writing something like this. To me, it doesn't even seem like it's about the cheerleading more than it is her bitter and resentful childhood.

    PowerXbaby, would you like to explain how one of the UK teams "Pretty much did Top Gu's routine" please?. I can ensure that we all know in teh UK that Top Gun is a world loved cheer team, and yes some people may take IDEAS but i can tell you that they would not be so stupid to copy or copy sections of Top Guns routines. This would be highly stupid due to the fact that when competing judges would realise this and maybe some spectaters. So why the hell would a UK team copy a Top Gun routine?. Myabe they took inspiration but im sure they didnt copy it !.

    I'm not sure but isn't this the team Top Gun hosts before worlds? If so, that's probably why it looks similar to Top Gun. They might help them out or something. I doubt they purposely copied them though.

    Okay then, so they take things from more than just top gun's, that's cool too. I like the dismount from california allstars. I guess there's nothing wrong with using things people have already done (i mean we all stole kick doubles from top gun anyways). It's just like have deja vu watching some of the same things.

    Ok, i'm not saying that anyone copied anyone. But i did notice a few similarities between the video posted above, and Cali's and Top Gun's routines.

    Yes it is the team that trained with Top Gun before worlds, and powerXbaby would you care to tell me where they do a dismount from California Allstars? Because I don't see it.
