    Simplest solution.. Do away with the cheerleaders.

      Completely agree. Fail to see the relevance of cheerleaders at any level of sports.

    Big OL Pimp Daddy Goodell has raked in a cool half BILLION while he treated these girls like prostitutes & objects & let them get Sub Minimum Wage while doing so & turned a Blind Eye to the Groping over his Dozen year tenure as the NFLs leader. What a man of Integrity.

      I also hate Goodell, but to be fair, those cheerleader squads are operated by the individual teams.

    Please don’t let this news get out. People in Syria, China, Venezuela and virtually the rest of the entire world will laugh and cry at our “problems”.

      They aren’t laughing and crying at our cheerleader problems. They are laughing and crying (from laughing so hard) at our President.

        Trolls are people who have nothing to add to discussions, but who intervene for the sake of disruption to seek reactions, or personal attacks on those whose opinions contrast with their own.

    How can you really “make” someone pose topless? Really, girls? You could have walked off the squad.

      Perplexed, I believe these women feel an obligation and fear the consequences of not meeting it. It stems from those men in our society who behave like this:

      “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything.”

        Good point. Women in your view are too weak to stand up for themselves. And so to hold women accountable for their actions would be like asking children to behave.

        How very 19th Century of you, looking down your nose at women . . .

          How very Craig of you, take someone out of context in attempts to ridicule them. Thanks for trying out! Better luck next post.

            “those women feel an obligation and fear the consequences of not meeting it.”

            Right. out of context. That’s the reason they took their tops off.
            Because of the men. After all, they are just weak women, according to you . . .

            They took their tops off because of sexual harassment and assault. It’s 19th century to think of them as sex objects and homemakers.

            I disagree with you Cap. Women are awesome. They are beautiful.
            They should be admired not just for their brains and personality. If these cheer leaders don’t want to be looked at as sex object, they should try a different profession. Even if they did, they would still be awesome!

            Sorry, FFA, but the industry for topless women as sex objects is pornography and not cheer-leading. Ask our President…allegedly.

    Pretty easy to understand why the Bears don’t have cheer leaders. McCaskey just don’t want the head ach.
