    Cheerleaders are cognizant of their role in what is generally a man's sport. If they don't like wearing sexy clothes and being drooled over by the majority of men there, then they can choose not to do it.

    So it goes.

      She is a very kind and beautiful woman and these people took advantage of her. The same thing happened to another dear friend (although she was not a cheerleader and instead had a horrible money situation). Women are taken advantage of by people all the time - occupations like cheerleading/dancing/etc.. are used to take advantage of such women. Sure, they get paid - but they get paid to do what?

      Show off their body in front of thousands of drooling, drunk men.

      It is entirely possible to appreciate a woman's beauty with her clothes on. She does not have to dress provocatively. That is the problem with generations these days - they do not appreciate beauty. Instead, they appreciate lust.

        Child please...

        If it was as bad as you are saying we would be seeing men jump the on the field and try to rape cheerleaders right on the field.

          I do recall something happening at the Eagles stadium ... it didn't involve fans. It involved someone else...

              Peeping Eagles

              Dozens of former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders have joined a lawsuit charging that visiting players spied on them as they showered and dressed in a Veterans Stadium locker room.

              In an expanded lawsuit filed Wednesday in state court in Philadelphia, 44 former cheerleaders seek damages from members of the 29 NFL teams that played at the stadium between 1983 and this year.

              The players spied on the women through holes in a door that separates the visitors' locker room from the cheerleaders' shower room, and through cracks in various walls and scratches in a painted window, the plaintiffs charge.

              "If you put your eye up to it [a peephole], you can see plenty," said plaintiffs lawyer Michael J. McKenna.

              McKenna said he has not gotten any responses to the private letters sent to the NFL commissioner's office or to the lawsuits sent to the defendant teams and their insurance companies.

              "I can't get 'boo' out of them, whether they'll conduct their own investigation, whether they'll deny it, anything," he said.

              "Particularly the silence from the commissioner's office is troubling," he said. "These are people who fine people for wearing do-rags and doing dances in the end zone, but this doesn't seem to trouble them."

              The NFL did not immediately return a telephone message left at its New York headquarters.

              The Eagles' organization has not issued a response but has provided access to the locker rooms, McKenna said.

              Eagles' spokesman Ron Howard said the team had no immediate comment.

              According to the suit, the "ability to peer into the cheerleaders' locker room, and to view them in [various] states of undress, was considered one of the special 'perks' of being a visiting team of the Eagles."

              "It was common knowledge among virtually the entire National Football League -- while at the same time a carefully guarded secret to be known only to the players and other team employees of the [visiting] teams -- that these conditions existed," the suit states.

              The Eagles organization is not listed as a defendant, in part because its players presumably did not use the visitors' locker room, McKenna said. He said the Eagles and perhaps the city, which owns the stadium, were careless, but he did not want to ask Philadelphia jurors to find fault with them.

              The plaintiffs, who claim invasion of privacy, trespassing and emotional distress, are seeking unspecified damages from the visiting players and teams.

              The two original plaintiffs, identified as Jane Does in the initial suit, were named along with the other plaintiffs in the suit filed Wednesday.

              Susette Walsh, a 34-year-old math teacher, said she quit the squad last year after learning about the alleged spying on TV, and later filed the initial suit.

              "You should feel 100 percent safe in your locker room, as you would in your house. That's your work place," said Walsh, a former captain, who said she was paid about $30 per game.

              News of the issue has been difficult for her stepchildren and embarrassing for her at the middle school where she teaches, she said.

              "It's just a total invasion of privacy. It makes you feel degraded, humiliated," Walsh said.

              According to McKenna, the door closest to the showers has been replaced, but he thinks at least one other set of doors remains a problem.

              The Jacksonville Jaguars is the only NFL team which did not play in Philadelphia during the period and is not named in the suit, he said.

                This begs a question, what goes on that we DON'T know about.
