I give you: Project Science Cheerleader.. in which a former pro-sports cheerleader profiles amateur-sport and pro-sport current-and-former cheerleaders who happen to have the whole "personality and intelligence" thing going on.

And if you put her in hot pants and a halter top on an NFL sideline she'd induce vomiting.

If you want to have a dance you've got to pay the fiddlers. NFL cheerleaders are part of the pageantry of the game.
And the NFL isn't paying them for their time, claiming that some kind of "intangibles" should make up for it. It's crapola,
and like most people who righteously push crapola now even if they win in the courts they are going to pay more in legal fees than they would if they had up and paid the girls to begin with. And that's if they win.

Pretty sure Goodell has nothing to do with the cheerleaders. I think it's up to each team to run their own cheerleading squad.

Personally, I wouldn't put up with all the bullshiat they're complaining about for a poorly compensated part time job. It's almost like they're doing it for some reason other than money or benefits.

In any case, no one would care if cheerleaders disappeared from the NFL. It wouldn't be hard to find skimpily dressed women in other locations. So, to ensure these poor ladies no longer have to suffer the indignities of being cheerleaders, they should just disband all the cheerleading teams. The ladies should have no problem using the skills they acquired jumping around in a short skirt 3 hours a week to find other employment opportunities.

There's got to be a reason that hundreds of them try out for every team that has a cheerleading squad.  I'd love to see what would happen if NFL teams just said, "fark it, no more cheerleaders".

I'd bet the majority of the dissenting opinions against that decision would come from within that very group.

If you are a cheerleader what are you working yourself to? To me that is the top of the career chain for a stripper.
After that it is either marry a athlete who makes bank or end up in porn.

TFA: "Krystal alleges, while she and her 'Flight Crew' squad are paid $150 per game and $100 per special event, her salary drops to just $3.77 an hour because of all the additional 'off the clock' hours she and the squad are required to work. That total drops to $1.50 an hour counting the mandatory hair, makeup and transportation expenses the cheerleaders must spend, her suit claims."

Yeah, but it comes out to about $4,000 per touchdown.

I dated a Magic dancer and I find these lawsuits to be retarded. They are all either students, professionals or in some cases moms. For the most part, they enjoy this and find it as a way to stay in shape, socialize with other females in an environment that surprisingly is not super judgemental.

It's not like they promise them cars and high salary and then once they sign on they're told,"actually..you won't be paid!". I can understand maybe some of the lawsuits stating that they were obligated to do extracurricular shiat and appearances and may not have been compensated fairly but the overall attitude that they work hard so they deserve more is stupid.

This is one of the reasons I can't read TMQ anymore. Every time he goes on about "cheer babes" as he calls them, I'm like "dude, you're literally the only person who cares about this, just give it up already."

I mean, the thought of them getting minimum wage. How heinous of an idea.

I also find the contractor argument to be BS. These people are employees. They have no control over how they do their work, they have no authority to subcontract, they have no opportunity to share in profits or losses, etc.

If there is a loophole allowing them to be paid sub minimum wage, then that bloody well needs to be closed.

Shots of cheerleaders is preferable to 90% of the other stuff they show when they aren't actually showing action on the field. Let's get another shot of the officials discussing where to reset the game clock.

At least the officials discussing the clock is somewhat germane to the actual game....cheerleader shots aren't.

Iif there was, then the teams would have dumped them a while ago.

They are a marketing tool. Their primary roles is in off the field events, they just have to be at the games to support this.

I seriously doubt many teams would dump them if they suddenly had to pay, say, 5 times as much to operate a cheerleader team.

The Bears haven't had them since the 80's. They seem to do just fine. There are a few other teams that haven't had cheerleaders in a long time as well. Too lazzy to look them up.
 
2014-05-08 03:21:26 PM  
Away from the games there's a lot of schmoozing to do with clients, fans, etc. Players are often busy, banged-up, or not really the type of person you want to bring to that type of event - you play them to be nuts enough to play football; they don't all transition well to other situations.

No one really wants to meet the random front-office people - they're not a selling point. But attractive women are, and that's why cheerleaders exist. They are a big part of the face of the franchise on the 345+ days of the year that there isn't a football game going on.

And just because some teams do fine without them doesn't mean they wouldn't be better off with them.

Sure, yet most teams seem to think they are worth it.

They are a usefull marketing tool.

One thing I would note about the Bills is that it was the independent operator that shut down their cheerleaders. The Bills had no authority over them and did not provide any funding.

It looks much more like the operator trying to get out of a lawsuit than a concious decision by the club not to have cheerleaders.
