Leaked "rules" for Raider cheerleaders

Tuesdays are known as "2 Piece Tuesdays." You must wear a 2 piece outfit consisting of a sports bra-type top and shorts. The top must fit like a sports bra to reveal the body from under the bust line and form-fitting shorts (not jazz pants rolled up, basketball shorts, cutoff sweats or colored tights under the shorts) worn to reveal your belly button. Failure to do so results in a $10 fine.


Crazy read for something that exists nowadays

Remember, as important as you are to our organization, football is the name of the game. Fans would come to see the games whether or not we had cheerleaders. There are some great teams who do not have cheerleaders, such as the 2010 Champion Green Bay Packers. They are sold out every Sunday. Some teams who previously had cheerleaders do not now have them (Chicago Bears). Because of morality problems with their squads they decided cheerleaders were too much trouble to deal with. Cheerleaders enhance the game but the important thing is that people come to see football and will still come whether or not we have cheerleaders.

Make a point to find out if a player is married. In most cases, he won't tell you! You can call the Raider office with questions as to marital status and I encourage you to do so. Again, he will not tell you he's married!

Kinda gives you an idea of how much they're being paid.
I don't have a problem with a lot of this

These women are entertainers. How they dress and how they act in public is part of their job.

My big issue is that they deserve a fair wage. The NFL rakes in over nine billion dollars a year. I'm pretty sure they could find some spare change for cheerleader pay somewhere in their couch cushions.

It's is disgraceful how little these women get paid both in the NFL and NBA. But, they also make a decent amount of money in appearances. For those, I'm not sure if the teams sign off on everything, but the payments are coming from the customers, not the team.

I assume the dress code for Tuesday has something to do with either a practice or appearance or both.

that rules for cheerleaders who wear next to nothing could be sexist.

I am shocked, I tell you.

as a banker - I hired the Arizona Cardinals cheerleaders to appear at a large meeting. It was a lot of fun, they worked a total of maybe an hour, and they were paid pretty well. I can't remember the exact amount, but it wasn't cheap.

That's not to say that they couldn't/shouldn't be paid more, but to remind everyone that they still have opportunities to make pretty good money.

There's a reason that so many girls show up for the auditions every year.

There is a line a thousand women long wanting this job. They clearly find the job, including its pay and benefits, desirable. We don't need a cheerleader minimum wage.

Just curious, did you book them through the team, an agency, etc.? I wonder how much of the fee goes to them directly and also, while you payed a decent sum, it is split among all of them.

I don't think that is a fair assessment. First of all, I think a lot of the women who line up to audition are unaware of the pay and benefits, or lack thereof. In the interviews I have seen with NBA cheerleaders, they were mostly surprised by the pay once hired. They also are not considered full time employees, and a lot of the practice time is unpaid, but not exactly voluntary. They are interested in the job for a variety of reasons, though.

Actually my administrative assistant did the booking for me - sorry I wasn't clearer on that. I remember her talking to someone at the team offices about it, but can't remember the particulars. I didn't handle the payment either - they sent my office the bill which was expensed. I would have signed the expense report but I can't remember the exact amount. Gun to my head I would have it around $3000 for around 10 girls, something like that. I realize that's not a ton of money - but considering the work (all they did was come out on stage and waive their pom-poms as winners came forward to accept awards/honors) it wasn't bad either. I presume they get different engagements like this around the year, so the money ought to add up a bit although it is clearly part-time work.
