And that is exactly what we want to talk to you about.Most notably, we want to tell you about 15 ridiculous rules you had no idea NFL cheerleaders have to follow.Tagged Abigail klein, Amy Lemon, bob lilly, Brooke Sorenson, Caila Michelle, charles haley, Cole Beasley, Dallas cowboys cheerleaders, Dan Bailey, Danny White, DCC, emmitt smith, fraternization, jenna lene, kelli finglass, Kristen Gauthier, melissa rycroft strickland, nate newton, Nicole Hamiliton, rayfield wright, Samantha, Tandra Cromer, Tex Schramm, Thomas Hollywood Henderson, TOBIE PERCIVAL, Tom Landry, Tony Romo, Trisha Trevino, Yvonne Silver How do the DCC go from having a rule against fraternizing with players to the above photo with quarterback Tony Romo that appeared in Maxim magazine in 2009?Well, the simple answer is probably Photoshop, but let’s dive into the history of the DCC’s fraternization rule.I guess being a Cowboys great who no longer plays makes “fraternization” OK.In any event, the DCC have done a pretty good job of selling the notion that their players and cheerleaders are strictly platonic. With all of the things that can go wrong between men and women (marital infidelity, unwanted pregnancies, domestic violence, rape/accusations, etc.), it’s probably best to keep the two groups separate to avoid PR nightmares.
Sure, it can be fun to watch the random performances of guys and mascots using trampolines to do acrobatic slam dunks during the intervals of basketball games.
When Tex Schramm decided to add the DCC to the Cowboys entertainment package, legendary head coach Tom Landry was none too pleased.
He said the ladies were not wholesome and he did not want them on the sidelines.
Of course there is the double standard aspect of the fraternization rule – cheerleaders who break the rule are immediately dismissed while the guilty player is not punished.
However, this has not stopped some of the cheerleaders.
