Banned Cheers

Some cheers have been banned over the past few years due to the unsportsmanlike connotation they may impose.
These cheers include:
Cookie Monster
The Cookie Monster says the “Bears” are the great big cookies at the top of the jar.
The Cookie Monster says the “Tigers” are the itty bitty crumbs at the bottom of the jar.
Cookies & Cream
Cookies, cookies, cookies and cream,
What’s the matter with the other team?
Nothin’, nothin’, nothin’ at all,
They just can’t play football.
California Oranges
California oranges, Texas cactus,
We think your team needs a little practice.
Put ‘em in a high chair, feed ‘em with a spoon,
We can beat your team any afternoon.
We’re #1, Can’t be #2, we’re gonna knock the whoopsies out of you.
1,2, 3, 4, what do you think these cleats are for?
To stomp the “Tigers”, stomp stop the “Tigers”!
HOWEVER: you could cheer like this:
1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 3, 4, what do you think these cleats are for?
To score, hey, hey, hey! To SCORE!
“We’ve got spirit” may only be directed to parents. This chant may NOT be directed at the opposing cheer squad
or the opposing stands.
Bang, Bang Choo Choo Train may be done only if “Bang, Bang” is changed to something else…. i.e. “Hey, Hey”, etc.
