And this is the original reason for the no-frat rule. Jerry wanted the DCC for him & his friends & Suzanne Mitchell said, "no way."

The no frat rule existed waaaay before Jerry bought the team in 1989.  Suzanne Mitchell left along with Tex Schramm so she was never director under the Jones family.  Kelli was the one who explained the DCC rules and history to Jerry so he didn't make them wear skimpier outfits and do beer commercials like he wanted them to.  The irony is that years later the rhythm & blue were created and sponsored by Miller Lite.

Those photos of Jerry are absolutely, utterly disgusting. Context doesn't matter, but I'd like to know anyway. Are these former cheerleaders or from somewhere else? I'd really, really like to know what the organization has to say about those. I'm appalled.

I"ve been a DCC fan for 42 years.  I don't recognize those women as DCCs.

By the way, those pics have been floating around for years.  I first saw them on a Cowboys message board a good 8 years or so ago.

But, lest we derail this thread, my big question is: why has the show still not been renewed? Usually we would have been at episode 5 by now!

I’m hoping it doesn’t get renewed. I realize my own hypocrisy here of being invested in a show that is so disparaging to women, but it’s time for this show to die.

Feel free to throw tomatoes at me. 😊

I don’t think VK will ever be point. Kelli knows on some level that her dancing is just not up to snuff and, if they put her there, it’ll highlight for everyone watching just how weak she is. 

I'm in agreement here.  I think she could possibly be in the diamond....or she will keep the space they put her in last season when she took over Gina's spot...but I don't ever see her as point...not even with Aunt Kelli's biased views...but I've often been wrong.  🙂

I’m sure that’s true for many, but for those who find her views repugnant, it undermines the integrity of the organization that they’d use her as an ambassador for the brand. 

I agree. I loved her and miss her!

When we were little, my mom said she wasn't going camping with us anymore because she was only there to cook, clean, etc. 😄

This sounds like something I would say. 😄 I've been on a real "no one appreciates what I do to keep this household running!" kick lately. I guess the toll of home isolation since early March, overseeing online learning for two kids, and working full time from home has taken its toll!

But there is something about alcohol in their contracts (I don't remember what it says, but I remember it's there because of the big discussion here about it being misspelled in the contract when Kelli pulled out the contract when cofronting Holly). 

Anyone remember what it said?

We never got a good shot of it, but from the little I can see, it looks like this clause is about drinking while on the job.

Not considering any of Lisa’s alleged personality characteristics that may be the cause for the blanket criticisms...

I don’t see anything wrong with her body. Definitely not a traditional dancer’s body type, but not a reason to sling her through the mud for her muscular physique (which doesn’t come easy AT ALL).

For me, Lisa's physique is just another way Kelli overlooks something she cuts someone else for ie: Lacey from St Louis, Viviane, even Kali who was not muscular but definitely bigger boned, Meghan (thut--- (for reference only---i loathe that term) Kelli has no problem talking so poorly about their bodies yet overlooks Lisa's very strong body? 

Absolutely agree. Good point.

Gal on here said she took class at Nicole B's studio.  Nicole said when she was a DCC, there was a lot required time wise and it seems to have gotten worse.  But I remember Milan saying on the podcast that they were upset with her for not being able to make an appearance.  If one gal can't make it, aren't there plenty of others who might be able to.

The problem is that Kelli has cut women with better bodies than Lisa because they didn't "look good in the uniform."  Her body is fine, but it's not a traditional DCC body by any stretch of the imagination.  I do think her short neck and short legs cause her to look bad in the uniform.

I always thought this was a prime example of Kellis petty and nastiness. The girl who got tackled didnt ask for it and it wasnt really her fault, it's hard to get out of the way when someone is suddenly charging full speed at you. But because it made national headlines it was all the girls fault rather than just a freak unfortunate accident

According to Kelli, IIRC, the issue wasn’t the tackling itself, it was because the cheerleader posted something on social media about the player not being as tough as she thought or something like that.

She has poor dance quality.  Stiffness, lack of extension and lack of flexibility .  She is late on counts and late many times. Her turns are flat and due to her short neck she dances with her shoulders up by her ears .  Then you compare her quality to Hannah for example and it is boggling that Hannah was cut for “Pom performance”

I agree.  Lisa’s dancing is very heavy and sharp; to me, she lacks fluidity and musicality.  I don’t know her background, but I’d bet it’s cheer or gymnastics.  
 

I really liked Hannah and don’t buy any dance-related reason for her cut.  She displayed a great balance between classical training and pom style.  I thought Meredith was a beautiful dancer but she never got strong enough in DCC style, so I’m not surprised she was cut.  I didn’t think either Brennan or Lily were the strongest dancers technically, but I thought they were solid and reliable blenders.  And please understand that unlike Kelli, I don’t use the term “blender” as a pejorative when it comes to a dance team. You NEED them.  I think Gina is probably the best dancer on the team right now and Holly Powell was the most talented in recent years, but I can’t imagine an entire team full of them.  

ETA: I didn’t mean to imply that I think Lisa’s a bad dancer or shouldn’t be on the team.  I think she’d be more enjoyable to watch with some ballet or even contemporary instruction to learn to be a bit lighter and more fluid in her movements to balance out her power.

I'm not afraid of insider information.  But what I find sad is the new rookie class seeing just how far certain rules can be stretched or ignored. We've already heard from insiders here about Marissa's "personality concerns". This kind of approach can't be good for the future of this team.

Yes, I understand that.  My point is the extreme to which things have been going and it's not setting a good example for the next DCC generation let alone leadership.  But hey - go ahead and dump some proven veterans while TPTB ignore other major rule breaks.  Great way to teach the new rookie class that never should have been during a pandemic year.

It's neither like nor dislike on my part (although I have the feeling we wouldn't be friends 😉) -- it's all the "I'm so fierce/I'm going to beat you up" facial expressions I can do without. Not a good look for one of "America's Sweethearts."

Seriously though. I went to the same college as Caroline and she was in the sorority stereotyped for partying and *ahem* being generous with the guys. Don't get me wrong she seems like a nice girl and can pull herself together and be mature when she needs to be, but the girl parties hard and gets ****faced like any other pretty 25 year old.

But like that's normal for girls around our age. Let them have fun. However, I agree they need to be extremely cautious if they choose to go out during a pandemic (not saying anyone of ANY age should be going out during a pandemic anyway). Not including the pandemic as a factor, if things were normal, I wouldn't judge any of the girls if they wanted to go out and have fun with their friends..

Interesting - on all of the versions of the episode I've watched, they blurred out the contract aside from the circled line about association with players. So I'd never seen those other rules. Also, I don't really believe that this is their contract. It's not nearly detailed enough, there would be several more rules associated with association, uniforms/gum/alcohol would be part of a "prohibited actions" section which would have way more than 4 rules, and I really doubt that there would be a "general" section with just two rules. And that the general section would be the very last in the contract. Thoughts?

I agree if there wasn't a pandemic then absolutely let the girls go out and have a good time. I think anyone should be careful about having too much to drink especially when out because bad stuff can happen. But seriously watching the podcasts and vet vlogs Caroline seems like somone who'd be great fun to party with tbh. Lets be honest with all the dcc weddings i'm sure once photos are taken and thunderstruck performed there would totally be a few that get more than a bit sloppy.

It totally is normal! Albeit, as you said, its not the smartest decision during a pandemic and being that they are semi public figures. Just found it funny that people were so shocked Caroline was out drinking in public, because I know her in passing.

Dance-wise, I'm only going to miss Bridget and Heather, although Taylor P looks great in her IG videos dancing! Bridget, I warmed to instantly, she just seems so genuine and warm. Also, her dancing is amazing! Heather has been a great ambassador for the team and should've been awarded more dance opportunities i.e. the triangle.

I've never been crazy about Amy, Alexis or Molly for some reason. They blend as dancers but I imagine they're better ambassadors than dancers. Alexis is one of the prettiest girls they've ever had though.

Although she's not a fave here, I warmed to Christina. Sure, she's not that great of a dancer but she did add a sense of maturity. However, it sounds from these boards that she can be a bit snotty on appearances. If so, good riddance!

I'll actually miss Miranda more than I thought I would originally. I never saw the appeal until last season. She's a blender in terms of dance but she would've made a great group leader this year and seems more mature than others. Seems to be a favourite on appearances too.
