Penny-Pinching Nuggets Cut Back on Cheerleading Costs

The Denver Nuggets are trying to come up with all kinds of creative ways to save money: “Kroenke Sports Enterprises last week announced layoffs. Also affected has been the Denver Nuggets Cheerleading team, whose performances have been scaled back from all home games to only weekend games…So how money would be saved by benching the cheerleaders for seven games this season? It would seem to be less than $17,000.”

    The real question is why in the h3ll do they need cheerleaders in addition to the dancers they already got? Still a funny story

    This Makes A Little Sense. The Cheerleading Squad Has Like 45 People. The Nuggets Dancers Aren’t Being Cut Back Though.

    They should keep the dancers, cut the shooting guard position and play four on five. Same difference.
