Helmets Off


Apr 6, 2018

NFL cheerleaders make no sense.  They don't impact the outcome of the game, and the fans don't need them.

There's an ongoing dispute regarding cheerleader pay.  Many say they're suffering from pay discrimination.

Scott had a neighbor who's daughter was a cheerleader for Dallas Cowboys.  He was very proud, and it can be really big deal.

But cheerleaders have been subjected to some pretty cruel standards.  They're paid very poorly, have long, mandatory practice sessions, and have to keep a strict physical appearance.  They're also subjected to a lot of sexual harassment.

There was a place at the old Veterans Stadium and all the players knew about it.  At the very back corner of the player's locker room was a small hole that peered into the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader locker room.  It was the worse kept secret in the NFL.

Changing gears to baseball-

Most pitchers are not good hitters, and that's why they have the DH rule.  Designated hitter.

Shohei Ohtani is both a pitcher AND a designated hitter for the Anaheim Angels.

Ohtani is new to Major League Baseball, and if he does well this is going to throw baseball on its ears.  MLB teams are going to want pitchers who can also hit.
