How an Arizona Cheerleader Earned an Ejection

Casey Sapio | USA Today

Rivalries create tension that manifests in strange ways.  In the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry, it started a fight at a dialysis clinic.  In the Arizona-Arizona State rivalry, a cheerleader was forced to leave the arena.

On the road in Tempe, when ASU guard Remy Martin went to the free throw line, an official stopped the game to remove an Arizona cheerleader from the baseline.

What could he have possibly done to deserve an ejection?

“He was yelling, using the (megaphone) to call out people by name, which is not acceptable. And he was asked to please stop, and he chose not to,” the official said after the game.

The ejected cheerleader yelled into the megaphone, “Not today, Remy,” when Martin took the line.  It turns out, it’s actually against the rules to do that.  Cheerleaders are explicitly prohibited from calling out players by name.

I support this cheerleader’s move 100 percent.  It might not be seen as the classiest move, but if a Kentucky cheerleader did the same thing to get a win vs. Alabama, whatever it takes.  After all, it worked for Arizona.  The Wildcats defeated the Sun Devils 77-70.

    No Nick, that was bush league. Of course, also bush league when ASU taunted Steve Kerr after his father was killed in Beirut, and they chanted PLO PLO PLO.

      Come dude….you can’t even put those two things in the same universe, let alone the same sentence. That’s like saying someone who killed another person in self defense is on the same level as Stalin or Hitler.

    The most ridiculous part about this whole thing is that this guy’s parents name him Remy Martin. What a joke?

    Yeah, not the best take. Also, pretty dumb on the cheerleader’s part. I would bet money that the cheerleading team has been trained extensively on how to act during games.

    The best part of that game were the antics the ASU students put on behind the backboard when Arizona was shooting free throws. That was more entertaining than the game. Pretty funny stuff.

    Name calling isn’t acceptable Kentucky’s class, Nick, in this old guy’s opinion. Chear! Help your team!
