One of the biggest busts in recent draft history is getting another shot. In Cleveland.
Wilkins added that the message she wants to send is that cheerleaders bring so much value to this organization and we deserve to be valued as individuals, and paid.
The issue isn’t whether they can pay us — of course they can . . . it’s that they should, she said. I’m proud to have been a DCC. I’m not trying to make them look bad. I’m presenting them with an opportunity to be the good guys here . . . for them to be trendsetters and to set the precedent for other NFL teams across the board.
A day before the 2018 NFL draft in April, a bombshell hit University of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, when racially offensive tweets sent from the white player’s account in 2012 and 2013 — when the now-22-year-old was in high school — surfaced in a Yahoo Sports story.
i dont think you [N-word] want a troubled son! one said. Allen had been projected as a possible first pick in the draft. But once the tweets hit, his future was in question.
That’s a bad sign for the franchise, especially considering that they’ve removed seats from FedEx Field and don’t even have as many season tickets to sell as they had in the past.
The team’s new chief operation officer, Brian Lafemina, said they are taking a fresh look at every area of the business. That should include team owner Dan Snyder looking in the mirror: He’s been running the show this whole time, while tens of thousands of fans have decided it’s a show they don’t want to watch.
We used to worry about people accidentally posting dick picks, a publicist for pro athletes told The Post. Now we’re in a new version of social-media danger. These kids [going into pro leagues] grew up on social media. There’s a longer trail [of potential landmines].
Call it tweet reflux: when old social-media posts — sometimes written during adolescence — come roaring back at the most inopportune time. It’s a syndrome very much on the mind of agents, players and teams as the NBA draft kicks off Thursday at the Barclays Center.
[Allen] was a wake-up call for me, said agent Daniel Poneman. My initial reaction was sympathy. Twitter came out when I was a senior in high school, and my first post was cringe-worthy. This could happen to anybody.
