I imagine Raiders players will demand to be paid only after the season, in solidarity.
But as the Atlantic reports, the Raiders are not even the worst in the cheapskate department: the San Diego Chargers cheerleaders get $75 for each home game, along with two game tickets and one parking pass. The Baltimore Ravens cheerleaders make $100 for each of 10 (mandatory) performances at home games, which includes showing up five hours before the game starts, and practicing twice a week for three hours
We will not mention the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, legendary for their extreme audition process, but it is detailed here in the Dallas Morning News, beginning with the question: "How much would you give up for a part time job, one that’s only guaranteed for a year and pays as little as $150 a week? What if that job involved stars and white boots?" -- B.B.
