Baltimore Soccer Team’s Season Cancelled After Doing the Bernie (Video)

First off, let’s give the Perry Hall High School a round of applause. They scored a goal and did a team celebration. The celebration was the dance phenomenon called The Bernie. Their season has been cancelled from what we understand because the dance was sexually suggestive. Laugh. Secondly, watch Salisbury University lax rats doing The Bernie before the Championship game last year.

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A celebratory dance lands one high school soccer team in hot water and costs them the chance to play in the championship game.

Gigi Barnett explains parents are outraged.

It’s called “The Bernie”– an on-the-field victory dance after a game-changing sack, score or point.

So when the Perry Hall boys soccer team did it this week after kicking a winning goal against Dulaney High School, parents from the opposing team complained, calling the dance lewd, inappropriate and unsportsmanlike behavior.

Perry Hall’s principal George Roberts quickly suspended the varsity team, shutting down the season and blocking all chances for a trip to the championship.

“Two more games and they’re state finalists, two more games,” Roberts said.

Now Perry Hall parents and students are outraged. Students say they’ve done the dance before.

“We done it against Sherwood and it has not been a problem until now against Dulaney,” said Christopher Winter, a Perry Hall soccer player.

Roberts says “The Bernie” may be allowed on the NFL field, but it’s the wrong gesture for high schoolers.

“Engaging in those celebratory dances that they see Ravens players doing, professional soccer players doing, that’s just not something that we consider,” he said.

But Perry Hall parents hope an e-mail from Dulaney High’s coach could have changed the principal’s mind.

    You have to be kidding me….. there are more pressing issues today at our high schools than doing a victory dance. Be proud that hese young men choose to play high school sports in lue of doing something more dangerous or damaging.

    Dulaney Parents should be embarrassed for complaining about losing and Principal Roberts should be further embarrassed for supporting their complaints
