The Great NFL Sideline Rebellion of 2014 strikes again..
A former professional cheerleader for the New York Jets filed a wage-theft lawsuit against the team Tuesday, making the Jets the fourth NFL team this year to be sued by cheerleaders for allegedly violating state labor laws.

The cheerleaders need the NFL more than the NFL needs the cheerleaders. They willingly took these jobs. They knew what kind of outfit they had to wear. I think many of this women have a pole in their future, as opposed to what..rocket science?
Revolting cheerleaders, I haven’t done that in years.
“The cheerleaders need the NFL more than the NFL needs the cheerleaders.”
Speak for yourself buddy.
Its all mere entertainment.
And of course these people are corrupt and do not honor their contractual obligations. Do these women not pay attention to how many of these athletes are serious drug addicts off the field? Did they think that stops when they move up to the coaching staff?
Absolutely the management of major sports will pull any crap you don't have the money to cause the courts to correct. Good behavior went out in the early seventies when they abandoned even a vague pretense of what used to be called “sportsmanship. “

For what it's worth, the players are paid by the game, too. If they are suspended for a game, they lose 1/16th of that year's salary. So they are not paid for practices, either. The players do get separate bonuses for post season games, but I think that is paid by the league.
They don’t add much to the game.
The only thing more useless than cheerleaders are those people who “look” at your receipt when you leave Costco.
Your daughter is obviously a lovely young lady.
From time to time, I sit close enough to see the cheerleaders up close and personal. It’s not a pretty sight. Hard boned, excessive make up and silicone enhancements are on parade. Their routines are uninspiring and set piece. I do not like them, Sam I am.
They have decent bodies, but they wear about a quarter inch of makeup. Thank God I am the living embodiment of Adonis...
I have had a few conversations with a man who makes his living as an NFL mascot . Like the cheerleaders he doesn’t make that much for his in game performances(He is known for his death defying stunts), but they clean up doing personal appearances
It’s the finest of editting.
The cheerleaders should just all quit; that would really show the NFL. Then they could go back to their normal jobs as doctors and nuclear engineers.
Not connected? You’re much too modest FRiend. You’re posting in one of the finest and most hallowed traditions of Free Republic and that is any story talking about babes must have photos of babes in it. Such are the RULES!
There are options to make everyone happy...:)
Teams don’t need cheerleaders
They accepted those terms when they signed up didn’t they?
They deserve whatever they agreed to take when they signed up
When the Cardinals first came to Arizona, I went to one of their games. I hadn't been to a professional football game in decades, and a Cardinals game was the closest thing to a professional football game for miles. I was amazed to see men staring at the cheerleaders on the jumbotron through binoculars. Those must be some very lonely guys.
RE: “Thank God I am the living embodiment of Adonis...”
I thank God my wife has bad eyesight.
If they will come and cheer the efforts of my software implementation team, we will try to show them respect and good fellowship.
Nope. Not goin' there.
Uh, neither is this guy: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3153037/posts
“It is not as though anyone needs any of them, players, coaches, referees, cheerleaders.
Its all mere entertainment.”
It isn’t even that! (the football that is)! The last time I went to an NFL game, the play was so poor that only watching the cheerleaders saved the evening for me. Just glad I don’t live in “some big $hit hole city” that’s taxing me so they can provide a cheap place for these a$$holes to play in while the owners and a flock of brainless Holder’s persons get rich.
Did you know that there is a Costco receipt checker that has a facebook fan page with over 5000 likes?
The J-E-T-S did not even have cheerleaders until a few years ago and as a J-E-T-S fan I did not mind that one bit. I thought it fit the image of NY as a serious professional town. The football Giants are still one of the hold outs that do not have a cheer squad. I hope the J-E-T-S respond to this suit like I believe the Bungles did and get rid of the cheerleaders.
The only thing more useless than cheerleaders are those people who look at your receipt when you leave Costco.
They also make it easy for me to have a hotdog after checking out, without worrying that someone is putting my stuff into their cart.
Costco has the data to know they’re getting their money’s worth from the receipt checkers.
The cheerleaders should just all quit; that would really show the NFL.
Where the most important stat in the league is number of wardrobe malfunctions.
