Cheerleaders bringing in cash for NFL teams
By Darren Rovell

This yearís Super Bowl features the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But there will be no cheerleaders. The Packers and the Steelers are just two of six teams (along with the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears) that donít field a pom-pom waving squad.

Although their seasons are over, cheerleaders are an important part of the NFL off-season for the 26 teams that do have them. Why? Because, when executed well, they provide endless clicks for Web surfing fans and additional revenue in appearances (teams usually charge between $100 and $500 per hour per cheerleader) and swimsuit calendar revenue.

In fact, with plenty of women to audition and money to be had (most cheerleaders make less than $100 a game), the number of cheerleaders has increased exponentially in recent years.

In 2010, 15 teams each dressed more than 30 cheerleaders for games and have found ways, especially online, to generate revenue from their top squads. However, as valuations go, NFL teams are hesitant to put a dollar figure on their cheerleading squads, but the use of these cheerleaders as a vehicle for marketing is certainly in the public eye.

You probably expected to find the Dallas Cowboys on the top of this list, but no team has a more extensive of a library of cheerleader photos than the Indianapolis Colts. You can sort through over 2,000 shots that not only can be looked at, but also ordered. No other team in the league allows fans to do that.

The Colts are also the only team in the league to post a photo gallery of some of the favorites to join the squad next season. Fans can look at 65 candidates for the team and vote for who they think should join the team next.

Here is the ranking of the top teams that take the most monetary advantage of their cheerleaders.

The top five:

1. Indianapolis Colts
2. Houston Texans
3. Dallas Cowboys
4. Miami Dolphins
5. Philadelphia Eagles

It shouldn't be any suprise to anyone that Bob get every penny he can from every part of his franchise including the cheerleaders. What a businessman!

I've always thought he was a good owner of a football team, but since we still have silky smooth, I'm begining to wonder if he's just another businessman who happens to own a football team.

It seems to me that winning football would only be better for business.

It's a "what price victory" scenario. If Bob can field a winning team with the money he's chosen to spend, then he'd be all for winning. And that's what he wants to do. It's why he invokes the Steelers name whenever asked. He wants to pay as little to possible to players and still win. Conversely, losing is bad for business, so he's not going to fully cheap out, like some owners. He's just trying to get the most bang for the buck, and his baseline for determining how successful he is at doing so is the bottom line - money. Winning ties into customer satisfaction, but if the fans ***** and still pay .... well, they're still paying, so it's all good. He'll strive to win, but not at all costs.

JMO, of course.

Could you send that in a memo to Bob? That would be great.

This isn't really indicative of anything about the FO or the owner. It really is the offseason, huh?
