Don't say it's easy and you don't sweat unless you've been one. Id like to see you go to practices four days a week for 3 hours at a time and do full outs and conditioning for that one time when you out on the mat for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. You come and live the life of a cheerleader for a day, I'd like to see what you say after that.c95;

Since my adversary didn't provide any definitions I shall take the liberty of doing so.

Sport: 'an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment'

For winning this debate my adversary has to prove beyond all doubt that the activity of cheerleading is a sport.

And in response to the arguments presented in round 1 by PRO, none of them explain why cheerleading should be considered as a sport.

Hope to see more pertinent arguments from PRO's side.Iwish her good luck!

The purpose of cheerleading is to motivate a given team or group involved in a sport.I don't see how the activity of cheerleading itself could be considered a sport.Since PRO didn't provide any arguments I'm in a position wherien I can't offer any counter arguments.Thus I believe it makes me the winner of this debate by default since it was PRO's job to show that cheerleading is indeed a sport.

Vote CON!

Here some tips how you NOT get noob-sniped:
* find a good definition for sport
* source it
* evaluate IF cheerleading fulfills all parts of that definition and HOW
* bring these HOW examples for each part
* wrap it up with a conclusion.
* don't take it personal
* think about the difference between exercise and sport

Reasons for voting decision: Con obviously had better conduct because he actually posted arguments. I do believe that pro meant the argument to be about competitive cheerleading which would fit the definition of a sport. However, since pro gave no arguments for this, pro should win.
