NFL fans have reacted to the news that male cheerleaders will perform at the Super Bowl for the first time, with some claiming their debut will be a serious reason to not watch.
Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will be cheering for the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday as they take on the New England Patriots at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The two cheerleaders will make history by becoming the first male dancers in the NFL history to appear at the championship game, performing the same routines alongside women.

“It’s been a crazy 10 months dancing hard and really engaging with our community and our team and supporting our players, so I can’t believe we made it to this point,” Jinnies said on Good Morning America on Thursday.
“So I’m pretty sure it’s showing off that we’ve been working pretty hard.”

The two California dancers also encouraged other men to try out for NFL cheerleading teams, including Jesse Hernandez, who made it on the New Orleans Saints’ team.
Just another reason for some fans to foo foo the game.
