Two former NFL cheerleaders who filed discrimination claims against the league said yesterday that they will settle their case for $1 each and a meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell and other league officials, The Washington Post reports. The women’s attorney said the goal of the meeting would be to create “binding rules and regulations” for teams that employ cheerleaders. Currently cheerleaders are subject to intense restrictions, such as rules on what clothing to wear, social media rules, and being outlawed from having any association with players, including having to leave restaurants if a player enters.
