Davis has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency that oversees workplace discrimination, noting that the social media policy she was fired over does not apply to the Saints’s male players.

Funny how the message is always “temptresses, cover yourselves (just not in sweatpants)! In 2014, the Raiderettes—the cheerleaders for the Oakland Raiders—sued the team for paying them less than minimum wage and won $1.25 million in back pay. But handbooks like that of the 49ers still note, in the benefits section, that cheerleaders will get few to none.

She was subsequently fired by the football team for violating its rules of conduct for cheerleaders.

These rules seem to assume that the same NFL players that the cheerleaders energetically support all season, are dangerous predators that must be avoided at all costs off the field.

These rules seem to assume that the same NFL players that the cheerleaders energetically support all season, are dangerous predators that must be avoided at all costs off the field.

So, are cheerleaders and football players similarly situated? The better comparison would be if the rules that allegedly apply to female cheerleaders did not apply to male cheerleaders.reviewed the handbooks for seven different NFL team's cheerleaders and found they included things like hygiene, weight (Cincinnati Ben-Gals have to be within 3 pounds of ideal weight), what they have to do when a player from their team comes into the same restaurant (leave), and no sweatpants in public.All this for a job that pays very little and requires (in some cases) the cheerleaders to buy their own expensive uniforms.” and not “men, don’t stalk and assault women.”“The club’s intention is to completely control the behavior of the women, even when they are not actually at their workplace,” Leslie Levy, who has represented cheerleaders in lawsuits against the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, told . On top of questions about fair pay, there are teams that also place financial penalties on the little cheerleaders make. If they forgot all or part of their uniform on game day, they could be docked an entire day’s pay.” To be clear: This is a team that’s part of the same larger organization that dragged its feet to punish a player who was caught on video punching his fiancée in the face.

The cites a list of fines Raiderettes may incur: “ if they bring the wrong pom-poms to practice, or their boots are not polished on game day . Which is to say: None of the latest wave of revelations are a good look for the NFL and its notorious “women problem”—namely its creation of a culture where there have been multiple instances of domestic abuse and sexual harassment allegations (and where, to boot, women coaches and officials are practically nonexistent)—especially as the NFL has touted that 45 percent of its mighty fandom are women. Those women want more than pink baby tees with your team name on it.

Cheerleaders cannot go to restaurants where players are dining.
