Cheerleading is not a sport

Although not for the reasons I would urge. The Second Circuit held that Quinnipiac University violated Title IX by eliminating the women's volleyball team and that it could not compensate for the shortfall in sports opportunities for women with a competitive cheer team, because the latter was not a sport. This conclusion is obvious under my as-refined definition. The court considered a number of much different factors, although one included the lack of uniform competitive rules (competition being one of my preferred elements).
