The Damo Bit - 27th January 2010
Posted by southstander on January 27 2010 - 22:08:50


After easing his way into his brand new column over the first couple of week, Damo cuts loose with his thoughts on the Rhinos pre and intra match entertainment and how they might branch out in support of the club.

This one is right out of the left-field, an interesting and revealing glimpse into the mind of the one and only DAMO!

Dare you look?

With pole dancing becoming acceptable in some schools across the country I think that the Radio Aire Dance Team should jump on the bandwagon. For years, pole dancing has held a negative stereotype, of a women ripping their clothes off and gyrating on a circular metal thing erected mid stage. These days its all the rave with respectable clubs like Wildcats, and 'Red Leopard' sharing the same street as the Leeds Town Hall.

Wildcats offer a quality experience, an atmosphere that is unique, is seriously seductive and is visually stunning to watch, very much like a Headingley Carnegie match day experience with the Radio Aire Dance Team at the start, and the rugby league after that. Both the Wildcats, and the Rhinos, are open minded. They fight against the stereotype that dancing is just for middle aged blokes who have an unhealthy interest in young 'legal aged' people wearing very little and getting sweaty. The only difference between the two is that the Wildcats don't have the Rugby League, and Rhinos poles likewise.

Now I’m not suggesting for one minute that Wildcats should start a male rugby league team, but I wouldn’t mind them jumping on the all-female Lingerie League bandwagon in America and doing it over here with their girls. What I am suggesting is that the radio Aire dance team should find themselves a nice venue in the city centre to strut they stuff alongside the teaching, and match day fuss.

They could do 'private dances' for £30 with £10 going towards the dance, and £20 towards a match day ticket to bolster our attendances. This Radio Aire Dance Club would even attract better players to the club because no other rugby league club I know has though up this idea. Just like Rhinos on the rugby pitch we could even mix local dancing talent with international dancing talent like Charmyne Palavi.

Young lads of the city will grow up wanting to be a rugby player, and young girls of the city will grow up wanting to be a radio Aire dancer.

Fingers crossed Gary Heatherington will read this and give it a go.
