9ers fans in Raider territory.

My cousins got displaced by the flooding here in California and are staying at my house for a few days. They are diehard 49ers fans so all my Oakland Raiders memorabilia really gets under their skin, especially since they are staying in my office where most of it resides. I personally love every minute of it! Go Raiders in 2006!

Ready? Ok! Go Raiders! Get busy!

I have a question. What is up with the Oakland Raiders cheerleaders, the Raiderettes? In fact the question applies to all the pro team cheerleaders. Do they get paid to dance at games or are they volunteers? I know they do community service and promotional stuff like appearances and calendars, but it can’t be a full time job. Does anyone have the skinny on the whole world of professional cheering?
