Former NFL Cheerleaders opening up on HBO about mistreatment

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders, then the Bengals, and Bills are facing backlash from their cheerleaders for unfair treatment.

We should hear more about cheerleaders who are now suing their former teams. Two former Buffalo Jills will appear on an HBO's Real Sports.documentary titled 'Hidden on the Sidelines'.

They are among five former cheerleaders who claim they were paid less than minimum wage and were subjected to sexual harassment.

Here's the release for tonight's show:

NFL cheerleaders are regarded by some as among the most glamorous women in sports. But outside the limelight are numerous allegations of financial exploitation and mistreatment. Five NFL teams – the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders – are all currently defendants in employment-law related lawsuits.

HBO Real Sports correspondent Andrea Kremer speaks with a host of ex-cheerleaders, including former Oakland Raiderette Lacy T., whose lawsuit against her employer spawned four additional Suits against four other teams, and former Buffalo Jills, who accuse that team of subjecting them to humiliating body examinations and personal hygiene rules.

The show is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. EST on HBO.
