The NFL season has reached the beginning of the second season, the playoffs.  But are sideline cheerleaders a distraction?  Out of the 32 teams in the NFL,  six of them do not have "cheerleaders"  per say.  Now there may be unofficial squads which cheer, root and scream at every game and for good cause.

Some owners (many form the old guard) feel that there is just not a place for cheerleaders at the game.  It s a football game after all.

With the big game still on the horizon in early February, here is something to think about if you can take your mind off the sidelines for a moment or two.   Four of the last seven Super Bowls have been won by teams that did not have cheerleaders.

Distraction?  Maybe.  You be the judge.
