Athletes and cheerleaders are a match made in heaven, but for some, they’re not about to let they’re husbands fall prey to a cheerleader. Russian ice hockey club AK Bars is feeling the heat after getting rid of its cheerleading team to promote a more ‘family-friendly’ atmosphere at games.

Explaining the decision to Russian channel Match TV, the team’s press service said they held pre-season events without the cheerleaders.

Recently MMA legend Khabib dismissed “Cheerleaders, aka Ring Girls” but club denied that Dagestani fighter Khabib’s comments were anything to do with its move to ditch their cheerleaders, stating it had “made the decision earlier” and was taking a more friendly-oriented direction.

“When we told them about the decision, of course, the girls were upset. But we’ll meet with them again and present them with some valuable gifts,” an official was quoted as saying.

There was also some rumblings of jealous wives, which was another reason they dumped their cheerleaders. According to Barieva, team officials were worried about jealous wives angry at their husbands.

“The arguments were that supposedly other people’s wives don’t react very well to beautiful girls. Therefore, the club decided to abandon the services of the support group altogether,” Barieva said of the new dancer-free set-up.

Cheerleaders are an essential  part of the entertainment sports provides. Not sure why they don’t get the credit they so rightfully deserve.

Hopefully they can reinstate the cheerleaders, they need work too.
