Oh, those silly Raiders.
According to a lawsuit filed by one Oakland cheerleader the Raiders don't pay the Raiderettes minimum wage. "Lacy T" asserts that the girls are paid $1250 for an entire season worth of work including appearances. By Lacy's math it comes to under $5 per hour. California's minumum wage is $8.
Lacy also claims that the Raiderettes get fined for things like forgetting ther yoga mats.

Folks are down on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his surly demeanor and sloppy appearance during post game pressers. But lest we forget, Peyton Manning was young once, too - and not all that different than Kaep - as reflected in this picture from back in his Colts days.
"We have said goodbye to Mike Shanahan and to Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Josh McDaniels and Tim Tebow. We have said hello to Peyton Manning. We've been party to one of the most miserable losses in franchise history and now one of the most glorious wins."

Mayor Michael Handcock showed his true colors this morning by Tweeting "Broncos Nation". Everybody knows that we live in Broncos "Country" and that "Nation" is for the lowly Raiders. Handcock's error is a fine example of how disconnected politicians tend to become.
In the spirit of an Orange Sunday we will forgive Mayor Handcock. After all, we are sure that he supports Denver Players and that he hopes they get that ring. The championship kind, not the prostitution kind.
