My info comes from people directly involved with the squad.

but is it because they were not invited...
were invited and had financing but chose not to go...
were invited and didn't have financing so they decided not to go....
or some other reason?


It matters to me because this is clearly a missed opportunity

If it's money at issue, I'm astounded that the sponsors marketing this as an authentic American experience in Australia wouldn't spend a few thousand more to bring the cheerleaders. It's maybe a dozen more seats with plain checked baggage on a flight that they're already putting over 100 people on (not to mention all the pads that have to be shipped). On the scale of things, this is a low-cost, high-impact expense to spare.

It's been clear for some time that Rice, the institution, doesn't care about these things. So, it's left to a relatively few athletic supporters to discuss among themselves on the Parliament.
