  • Pay these women!!

    Guys c'mon sign this petition, this is just unfair, women are good enough to be a market to sell NFL products to, and the league can promote breast cancer awareness but ignore them when it comes to fair compensation.
    B.S. brothers these women bring in a lot of money to the teams that sell calenders and do appearances that bring in over a million dollars in revenue to an organization and get less than minimum wage!!??

    C'mon all you dad's of little girls out there. The hypocrisy here is really sad.

    Let's raise awareness for them. It only takes a few seconds.

      Ok, that's a fair opinion, but while they exist as a part of the entertainment dept or industry of the NFL and do bring in a large amount of revenue, shouldn't they be treated fairly?

        What about college cheerleaders? They aren't even on scholarship. Maybe they should consider unionizing.

        Edit: Was joking about a college cheerleader union, but it seems like a logical option for the "pros".

        Double edit: I think change.org petitions are the dumbest things ever and I hate them.

          The NFL deserves to lose this case and pay penalties. It's just a tremendously disgraceful set up from a billion dollar industry.

          I don't feel a whole lot of sympathy for the women who have chosen to do this, though. Anyone that looks at a contract that horrendous and still signs it deserves what they get.

            Just hope the replacement cheerleaders aren't half as bad as the replacement refs.

                What people don't seem to understand is that it doesn't matter how much money they generate, what matters is how easy it would be to replace them. Think there's not plenty of women good looking enough willing to do this for even less than they're making now.

                  You're right. I'm sure they can outsource this overseas too yes, and fly them in, but thats just it, we make this into a joke and it's just a microcosm of what's wrong here. Exploitation.

                    Yeah, and thats just it, cheerleaders are a part of sports, whether we care if they're there or not, I mean grade school teams have cheerleaders.
                    It's not going away. The professional teams cheerleaders should unionize.
                    And if they hire replacements, they should protest and shine a bigger light on the NFL's practices.

                      Might as well. Cowboys fans are the only ones who would even notice them missing. Several teams don't even have cheerleaders and their fans not only don't care, but they're some of the stronger fanbases you'll find.

                        The situation is already a joke. I don't take either side seriously. Obviously an employee should at least make minimum wage, but if the life of a cheerleader is so terrible, don't become one.

                        I'd be in favor of eliminating cheerleaders for professional teams.

                          Agreed. Sideline reporters are where it is at.

                            calling what they do in the nfl "cheerleading" is like going to a rec league softball game with a bunch of guys sitting around drinking beer in the dugout and calling it baseball. not that i care that much.

                              If they're going to have them, they should be paid fairly. Maybe 12 bucks an hour or something. Can't pay them too much, because let's be honest...it's not exactly a skilled position. I could drive to half a dozen shopping malls and build a decent cheerleading squad full of hot chicks working at department stores.

                              Really, they might as well get rid of them. It's been a lot of years since the Bears fired theirs and I haven't had a "we really, really need cheerleaders" moment since.

                              They're nice to have, but I don't think anyone would really give a damn if they just disappeared one day.
