NFL Cheerleaders , They Work Harder Than Some
Football Players by Vince Falcone
NFL cheerleaders have probably a harder job than even some of the
football players have. Now we know you will say how can that be. Well
have to practice, Learn new dance routines, as well as make community
appearances. This is all besides them having other regular jobs.
Some NFL teams don't have cheerleaders
What comes as a surprise is that not every NFL team has
cheerleaders. For instance the New York Jets and the
New York Giants don't have
cheerleaders. I often wondered why it was that the two teams in the
largest market would not have NFL cheerleaders.
One day we were at the Meadowlands watching a New York Giants-St
Louis Rams game when we were lucky enough to be sitting next to some
Ram cheerleaders that were in town for a photo shoot. I asked them why
the New York teams had no cheerleaders and they told us that there was
simply no room for them on the sidelines. I don't know if that's the
real reason but it sounded good to me.
Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders
We all know the history of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders so we
wont focus this article on that subject, but we do have to thank them
for taking NFL cheerleaders to the mainstream. In the 70's and 80's
they were so famous they even did television, remember they were even
on the Love Boat. It seemed like they were everywhere, but hey I am
not complaining and neither is any other man that is reading this.
I like some of the names that the NFL teams have for their
cheerleading squads. Some are quite cute.
- Buffalo Jills
- Carolina Top Cats
- Cincinnati Ben-Gals
- San Diego Charger Girls
- San Francisco 49 Gold Rush
- Washington Redskin Redskinettes
Atlanta Falcon Cheerleaders
My favorite team is the Atlanta Falcons so it comes as no surprise
that the Atlanta Falcons cheerleaders are my favorite. These ladies
really work hard for our enjoyment. I can only imagine how many hours
it takes to prepare for all the choreography to get that perfect.
Being a season ticket holder (shout out to section 123) and
watching the cheerleaders for some time I can tell you these ladies
must sleep good after a game. I get tired myself from watching them
The Falcons have a place outside the Georgia Dome called Falcon's
landing where the cheerleaders sign autographs and pose for pictures
with the fans (Thanks again!) for hours before the game.
Then they go inside and cheer as the team makes their way onto the
field before performing for another few hours while the game is going
on. These ladies don't stop when the players do for commercials
they are dancing with either the house band or the DJ.
Oh and I forgot they are
usually performing with the halftime show as well. Like I said it must
be exhausting as I am sure it is for all the NFL teams cheerleaders.
Add to that all the community service these ladies do during the week
and you have some tough job.
The Falcon cheerleaders also spend with
the junior Falcon cheerleaders. Being an NFL cheerleader is a
tough job but I am glad they have them. I myself would like
to thank you Falcon cheerleaders for all your tough work.
My favorite Falcon cheerleaders are Jennifer and Jamie the
Falcon cheerleader or a NFL cheerleader would like to add something to
