Omaha, NE -- Are they too sexy for an event that attracts children or is it just clean family fun?
On April 6, Joanne Raymond and her family went to the Omaha Beef football game.
She said her three kids, all under the age of 12, were excited.
"We went there so excited and looking forward to it," said Raymond. "It just didn't go well."
Raymond said the audience was using cuss words, players were using inappropriate gestures, but the cheerleaders pushed it over the top.
"When the girls first came out, was when I was the most appalled," said Raymond. "They were wearing gold bra tops, scarcely more than underwear and high heeled go-go boots. The dancing they were doing was lewd, lascivious and dirty."
Raymond wanted to warn other families so she wrote an opinion letter in the Omaha World Herald.
Beef owner Rich Tokheim told Action 3 News the prime dancers are an asset.
"They're working very hard, and to get slammed in the paper wasn't fair to them," saud Tokheim. "I wanted them to know that the Beef organization really appreciates everything they do, respect what they do, and we're going to defend them for what they do."
Raymond and her husband originally bought season tickets, but they said they threw them away.
She said she wont be back to a game until there are changes.
