    Do NFL cheerleaders receive a salary?

    I found an interesting story on Yahoo answers concerning (oddly enough lol) NFL cheerleaders.

    Here is an excerpt from the article:


    1. Cheerleaders are paid $50.00 per home game.
    2. There is no pay schedule for rehearsals.
    3. Opportunities for paid appearances and shows are available!

    So for the privilege of being one of the lucky 30 or 40 who make the final cut, the Cowgirls stand to earn approximately $500 ($50 x 10 home games).

    But don't weep for these women. If you refer back to point #3 in the Cowboys pay package, you'll see that income can extend beyond the bounds of the gridiron. Cheerleaders are in demand to appear at various functions, model for calendars, and perform shows outside of the stadium to help extend the NFL brand. For an idea of what it can cost to have cheerleaders appear at your special event, we found this page on the Buffalo Jills site detailing their pricing structure. In exchange for low wages, these aspiring women make money on these side gigs while receiving valuable exposure.

    I'm thinking it's an exposure thing. Chance to be noticed.

    They're cheerleaders......what else are they going to do? They've only got a few short prime years to find an older rich man to get hooked up with. They've got to have their alimony in place before their assets go downhill.

    Just a little tongue-in-cheek persiflage, Utter. No harm intended, mi amiga.
