  1. oh jesus give us a break, NOT NEWS, where is NBC's story about all the kids that died in the Russian Mall fire?

  2. The suit should have been overlying wages as they get paid less than $11 per hour for keeping costumers. Imagine a game without them, no longer entertainment just sports.

  3. Rules in place to protect her from fratenization and unprofessional relationships. Take them away so she can sue for allegations of sexual misconduct instead. Makes sense.

  4. They are athletes, so does this make strippers athletes also. An in this #me to movement, isn't being a cheerleader exploiting the young lady. If you say I just watch it for the dancing, how about if they dress Amish, isn't it still the same. Ban cheerleading, it's exploiting women.
