We often read about the multi-million dollar contracts professional football players sign every year. The story goes that if a player has performed well or shows great potential, franchises will pay huge sums of money to sign that player. In fact, there is a salary cap in place to keep teams from paying players too much.
However, the same cannot be said for the women cheering on those players. In fact, according to a recent lawsuit filed by a group of former NFL cheerleaders, NFL teams allegedly engage in practices that suppress the earning potential for cheerleaders.
