Will the Browns someday have a representative in a photo like the one above? According to Will Burge, who has started working with the fine people at Cleveland Scene magazine, it could happen.
As owner Jimmy Haslam and team president Alec Scheiner have previously said, the Browns will be wearing new uniforms, redesigned by Nike, in 2015.
And, according to a source in the organization, the team has also started moving toward adding cheerleaders for the 2015 season. The team has had meetings and started preparations to introduce a squad and is currently in the consultation phase of the process. Reached by Scene this week, the Browns declined to comment through a team spokesman.
Cheerleaders are a hot topic in the NFL right now as I pointed out last week. The league is under attack by some cheerleaders who claim that they haven’t been fairly compensated for their services. I was gloating a little bit that the Browns didn’t have to find themselves involved in one of the league’s scandals, albeit a smallish one.
So here’s hoping if the Browns do end up green lighting cheerleaders in Cleveland that they fairly compensate them for the work they do.
