Try To Watch This Former Buffalo Bills Cheerleader Explain ‘The Jiggle Test’ Without Vomiting
Regardless of where you stand on the "sporthood" of cheerleading, you've got to admit the managerial practices of NFL cheerleading coaches are repugnant. Plantiff Alyssa U., who is suing the Buffalo Bills for, among other things, being humiliated, is shining a light on just how bad things get behind closed doors.
Oh, and they're basically working for free.
Here's just a sample of what the women on some NFL sidelines were forced to endure at their "dream jobs."
[Huff Po] "One week prior to the game, we were to dress in our uniforms and stand before our coach, who had a clipboard in her hand, and we had to face forward, turn around, face back to the front and do about 10 jumping jacks. And from there, she would write down on her notepad what parts of our bodies jiggled," she said.
It gets worse.
The "Jills," as they're called, were made to make appearances at liquor-fueled golf outings, where they were purchased by golfers, and forced to ride around with them in two-person golf carts. Not surprisingly, touching happens. Sounds like a pretty dehumanizing gig, even with prior knowledge that you'll be asked to wear next to nothing and dance in front of mostly male football fans.
