TV Networks Refused to Show Angry, Booing Fans at NFL Games
By Jack Maxwell With the NFL season fast approaching, most American males are racking their brains trying to decide who they are going to take in the first round of their fantasy draft. I’m just looking forward to seeing the beautiful sights on the sidelines again. As we inch closer to kickoff, take a look at the Top 9 Cheerleaders Turned Celebrities. Apparently, the Office co-star once had what it took to be a St.
President George Bush also invited her to speak at the White House in But be honest, you know her from her work in FHM and Playboy.
The San Francisco 49ers cheerleader who was photographed taking a knee during the NFL’s Thursday Night Football pregame national anthem performance was identified on Saturday.
Bailey Davis , a cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints, was recently fired for posting a photo of herself in a revealing outfit on Instagram. Cheerleaders must avoid contact with all players, including in person and on social media. Cheerleaders cannot be in the same room as players. If a player enters while cheerleaders are dining, they must leave the restaurant. The Saints are defending the rules, however, saying they are in place to protect cheerleaders from harassment.
The antiquated stereotype of women needing to hide for their own protection is not permitted in America and certainly not in the workplace. Employment attorney Jon Hyman, of Ohio Employer Law Blog , says it all comes down to whether the cheerleaders and the players are similarly situated. If certain rules applied to female cheerleaders but not male ones, for example, then Davis would have a stronger case of sex discrimination. However, Hyman says that businesses should be wary of having rules that strictly apply to employees who happen to be one gender.
Employers should ask themselves: Is there a legitimate need for rules to only apply to this group?

Many years ago in Texas, there was a law on the books stating it was illegal to carry pliers in your glovebox. It was a holdover from cattle rustling days, but it stayed on the books for decades after that was no longer a problem. If a policeman murders someone, he should be punished. If a person regardless of color murders a policeman, he should get the same punishment.
The players aren’t the only ones who can be benched; an overweight cheerleader can be benched, incur penalties or, worse, let go. Other teams have “jiggle tests,” where the girls’ bodies are inspected for unpleasing jiggle while they perform jumping jacks.
This experience has changed me in a way I will never be able to explain. The bond that you create so quickly with 25 other women is something that I will hold close to my heart forever. I will say that I was a little bitter coming into the week as we had just lost to the Eagles horribly the day before my flight left, which knocked us out of the home hosted Super Bowl. My heart was so heavy. Throughout the week we had many planned and unplanned rehearsals to accommodate for our long halftime performance, appearances and the game, of course.
We performed choreography from Wildabeast for halftime along with Jordan Fisher. I will forever be grateful and humbled by this once in a lifetime experience — words could never do it justice. I am so thankful for all that I have been given in my 7 seasons with the MN Vikings. I could never have imagined this is where I would be standing today. The week was full of a lot of events that were family-fun and surrounded in Disney charm!
It truly made the week that much more magical. I thought was the perfect way to think about my life after the Pro Bowl, as well. I had an incredible time meeting and falling in love with my PBC teammates. That was something I will always remember and cherish.

Click to email this to a friend Opens in new window With the exception of roles in a few very forgettable movies, Brian Bosworth has not been seen or heard from much since his NFL career flamed out in the late-eighties. In yet another article from Yahoo! The relationship between Blake and Wichard has been under intense NCAA scrutiny, especially in light of a report from the same website that detailed a financial connection between the two long-time friends during his three years in Chapel Hill.
While Bosworth did not mention any financial incentive Blake may have had, he made it clear that Blake was very much the facilitator in the Sooner football program when it came to making introductions to Wichard. John made it clear that Gary was the only guy I needed to be with. Every meeting that I had with Gary was set up by John.
John would even pick me up and take me there, whether it was at a hotel or whatever. He was the fisherman and Gary was the cook. That is what it was. It was so blatant.
There isn’t “a” side; that is the only side. The only side that is honest, anyway. From all of the John Hughes-type movies where the captain of the football team dates the captain of the cheerleading squad, to the popularity of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders calendar, we all know sex and high profile sports are not two concepts that are foreign to each other. They are assumed to be one. I know of a prominent sports agency that holds business meetings with potential clients at the strip club that is walking distance from the office.
Agents at another company flat out told me they do not hire women they think are unattractive.

The Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee recommended raising the hotel tax in the Las Vegas area to help pay for a 65, seat domed venue that was promoted and would be partially financed by billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. Proponents still need to win over the governor, the Legislature and three-quarters of NFL owners to make the project a reality, but it’s a significant milestone for a city that’s never had a professional football team and has been hammering out the particulars of the Raiders deal for months.
We’re going to have people wearing Raiders jerseys and high-fiving each other That’s not something you can put a number on. Officials with the Las Vegas Sands, Adelson’s company, said they don’t want to return any profits to the public because they’d be making little or no money on the stadium. They’re also committing to fund construction cost overruns and infrastructure improvements at the yet-undetermined site. They’re also wary of the bonds used to finance the project, which could put taxpayers on the hook to cover stadium debt in a downturn.
Hill said the deal’s structure would shield taxpayers even in a recession as deep as the most recent one, when hotel tax revenues fell 33 percent. He also addressed arguments that tax hikes should prioritize Nevada’s bottom-ranking public school system. Public pressure mounted, too.
