SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: In Ft. Lauderdale, Craig Davis notes the Panthers yesterday announced via Twitter that the Lady Panthers, the team's cheerleading and ice dancing squad, have "been disbanded." A team spokesperson "declined comment about why the squad was being dropped from the Panthers’ game presentation" after nine years. It was "not revealed whether the Rat Pack energy team will be retained." The Panthers declined to comment on whether the move "was influenced by several lawsuits filed this year by NFL cheerleaders." The team has "made a number of organizational changes in the past year since an ownership change" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 7/24).
