-- escorted back in session on the docket today the controversy over a veteran cheerleader barred from the Super Bowl.
Perhaps in part because she wants gained a little weight.
23 year old Courtney Lance has -- -- -- Baltimore Ravens for how many years not the F five years five.
She -- -- which was eighteen now she's a ripe old 23.
But she wasn't invited to cheer squad this Sunday as the team makes its way to the big game it takes on the San Francisco forty -- in the Super Bowl.
The ravens said what do they had to choose 32 members of the sixty member cheer squad based on certain criteria criteria and -- did not make the cut.
And there's a big question about what the reason for that actually what's.
Turning now to -- its.
-- -- -- still -- a former prosecutor now defense attorney and mark -- that's also a former prosecutor now defense attorney.
All right so you tell me John -- YA she claims she's been -- so.
Current Courtney said that during the course of this season they have to get weighed all the time is not a consistent -- good.
She gained a little bit of weight during the season and a one game had to get -- how much weight did she I don't -- parents don't want to do I can say about it wants have seen in a million times -- -- batteries and why she's not.
Invited to cheer -- the biggest game of her like an earmark shame she's obese she came -- possibly put this woman out on a Super Bowl sideline and hold their heads up high those Baltimore raven I gonna do it and Newton.
Right -- up the sideline was that this is not about her weight that's what she's trying to do to gain public sympathy she chose to retire.
Early in the season.
All my goodness.
Her teams in the Super Bowl and now she's not being asked to join -- on the sidelines.
It's called life and it's calling this feeling of entitlement everybody these days thinks -- a winner they deserve to be part the group even though she did not.
Make the cut my kids get trophies for sub par performances these days you know what.
And let me just say this I might come across little -- little harsh I'm gonna fix this for her I'm gonna offer her subject to my -- approval if she'd like for this Super Bowl.
I would invite her.
And 27 of the other -- could make -- sad part -- in my house picked apart so yeah helpless.
You sixty -- I had and I love that about -- big screen TV it is quality its large.
It is not just -- it is not just her supporters who say she was this is bit because of her with her alleged weight gain of two -- According lets herself has talked about how hard she claims the ravens cheer squad leaders have bet on her listen here.
I just feel like it's just a slap in the face they required me to see nutritionists their -- media get counseling you know all out of pocket.
The last time -- hadn't had to come to the way they set I had had quote unquote a rough year they had to take disciplinary action and being I was bench for my weight.
John I mean listen if that is true is it this is it actionable I mean you know.
Aren't they -- aren't they allowed to pick the most embarrassed that you entered what.
I know there's say yes first the deck don't third of all let me get off -- you can't relate to mark where women okay we and two pounds from breathing I'm ready to -- and I had his share.
Just because it's Thursday it's true don't get confused by the difference in the number in the morning -- -- -- got -- -- and he had to pay you guys.
It's because -- -- -- pass on to that is ridiculous but whenever -- of all probably not actionable but I'm sure he signs -- light.
Away when she agrees to be cheerleader for the ravens and unfortunately I think I think guys Carlo -- -- -- the cheers corpus.
I like get a contract -- any break they got back and market probably.
I think John drank a big couple gullible this morning she's -- -- and I guess.
-- isn't -- you've got.
I'm not buying it they had a selection process and they consider three different categories.
And -- was not on their number one day it was seniority performance of -- n.'s personal conduct throughout the season glamour there you go good luck and good luck proving it was because overweight but here's the other thing.
Let's let's really talk here.
What is the purpose of a cheerleader at my daughters to cheerleaders I mean no disrespect even though they completely ignored -- in high school what's the purpose of a cheerleader okay.
If not for their beauty.
What for their cheers I have never chosen to go bananas solely because -- cheerleader encourage me to do so and you.
Think somebody not attracted mark come line.
I -- -- added that doing an editor who died two n.'s.
-- I mean you know like.
Give -- -- MV PN and -- this I mean why why why does -- have to be perfectly fit with zero fat in order to inspire people that they don't know -- hey thank you what do you think girls -- make the cut 28 she was one of the most senior everybody unless your idea is -- everybody in her category it would knowledge except -- -- -- through cell phone that's what you -- she knew she was like she was so sure she was -- she sent out a -- What -- what the ravens manic I can't wait to -- -- Orleans and so said it was so clear apparently did not just this woman and all the others on the team that she would be selected.
Then came the news she'd be like hey what -- marsh beautiful sunny look hey I'm not knowing exactly take a blatant dive bar there's sort this out young lady because.
And let me just say this when you're pointing your finger out words you got three pointing back at you.
And I'm just saying that this girl it's all based on attitude rove got the sense of entitlement is -- and you know what.
It does that make the cut how -- I -- I just say something on that and -- score at it's always confuse me speaking of your fingers point.
You know when you go out to dinner and it's like with twins my -- red clay is that my directly I in that kind of rhetoric that has water let us and then -- so my friend here earlier in this check.
