Aug 4 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Krystle Campbell has been getting no support at all from her fellow squad members after she allegedly kept missing practices in order to spend time with her boyfriend, the slugger for the Phillies known as Ryan Howard.

The rules say that cheerleaders cannot miss practices unless they are sick or have a death in their family, since training is required to make the moves, and lifts correctly and not risk injury to other cheerleaders.

But ‘Philly.com’ says that even though Campbell didn’t let her coaches know why she wasn’t going to attend the practices, she is not facing punishment for her actions. This decision upset many of her team mates who have attended practices faithfully while she went out to “play”. When previous incidents occurred where cheerleaders missed practice, the offending girls were made to work games from the luxury seats of the stadium instead of being allowed to cheer.

In spite of the seemingly obvious favoritism, the Eagle’s cheerleading director, Barbara Zaun told ‘Philly.com’ that “All of our cheerleaders adhere to the same guidelines. No exceptions.”

Campbell was not available for comment. She has been dating Ryan for a year, and he is thrilled that she is a cheerleader for the Eagles, since he was the one who convinced her to try out.
