No Jills cheerleaders this season



Buffalo Bills cheerleaders halt season after suit

1 hour ago AP - Sports

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills cheerleaders will be making no appearances this year, a decision that comes days after a lawsuit over pay and working conditions.

Stephanie Mateczun is the manager of the Buffalo Jills and president of Stejon Productions Corp.

She wouldn't explain the suspension, but two days earlier five former cheerleaders sued the company and NFL team.

The cheerleaders say they had to work hundreds of hours for free at games and were subjected to groping and sexual comments at mandatory public appearances. One cheerleader said they had to take a ''jiggle test'' so their boss could assess their physiques.

The cheerleaders seek unspecified back pay and legal fees.

When they say "no appearances this year", does that mean no appearances PERIOD, or no appearances off the field?

If its the former, not sure what to think about this -- I know its not an absolute necessity for the game, still nice to have, though. It just seems a shame that the Bills organization, which has a sterling reputation throughout the league, can't seem to resolve what should be a simple matter.

Oh well -- for 2014 I guess its up to us fans to take up the slack. GO BILLS!!!
