Body Paint Photo Of Cheerleader Fired By Colts

Last Thursday former Indianapolis Colts cheerleader Malori Wampler filed a lawsuit against the team contesting her November 15, 2010, termination by club.

Wampler was fired after a Colts fan forwarded the club photos of her wearing only body paint at a 2010 Playboy Magazine promotional event.

According to the lawsuit, before Wampler took a job with the team she notified the Colts of her previous employment with Playboy - and the nature of that employment. The complaint also states that after Colts officials were informed of that fact, they determined that Wampler’s past employment by Playboy “was not an issue.

But rather than merely contest the veracity of the team’s decision to fire her over the photos because it allegedly violated club policy, in the U.S. District Court filing Wampler’s attorney Kimberly D. Jeselskis also claimed, “The Colts terminated Wampler because of her sex” and “the Colts terminated Wampler because of her race and national origin.

More from Wampler attorney Jeselskis in the U.S. District Court filing:

  • Wampler met the Colts legitimate performance expectations.
  • Wampler was treated differently than other “similarly situated” male and female employees.
  • As a result of the Colts discriminatory acts, Wampler has suffered and will continue to suffer monetary damages and damages for mental anguish and humiliation unless and until the Court grants relief.
  • The Colts acted with malice or reckless indifference to Wampler’s civil rights thereby entitling her to punitive damages. Wampler is entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in this action.

Wampler claimed sexual discrimination in the lawsuit primarily because Colts players were not dismissed from the club despite engaging in off-field behavior that was allegedly much worse than what the Colts cited in firing her.

Wampler claimed racial discrimination after citing in the lawsuit instances where caucasian cheerleaders were not fired despite, again, engaging in off-field behavior that was worse than why she was apparently let go by the team. (Wampler is Indonesian.)

So what exactly does Wampler want from the Colts? From her attorney’s court complaint: Read more…

6-Yr NFL Cheerleader Makes Nude Playboy Debut

Jaime Edmondson spent six years as a Dolphins cheerleader. She also appeared on the CBS reality show Amazing Race and is a former police officer. So how did she follow all that up? By sending nude photos of herself to Playboy, dummy. And now, at age 30, I’m honored to report Edmondson is Playboy’s Miss January centerfold.

The PALM BEACH POST has entensive look at her background today, which includes an anecdote about her police career that was the highlight of the piece.

Palm Beach Post: What is one of the craziest stories while working the night shift as a police officer?

Julie Edmondson

Jaime: It was 3 a.m. and I saw this truck driving 5 mph. Obviously, he was probably drunk. I pulled him over and it was one guy, who was looking around. I asked for license and registration, and he’s looking at me, looking around, looking over his should. I’m like, “I need your license and registration.”

He said, “Is this for my birthday?”

Rams Cheerleaders Are Gorgeous, Heavily Armed

If there’s a scarier notion than an NFL cheerleader with a loaded high-powered rifle, it can only be a St. Louis Rams cheerleader with a loaded high-powered rifle. The Rams cheerleaders visited Afghanistan in Sept. to cheer up the troops and take a few potshots at local insurgents (below). They also, according to the story I read, were allowed to hold mortar shells. Oh Christ.

I was aware that most NFL teams have sent their cheerleading squads to Middle East war zones to boost the moral of our soldiers … the Buffalo Bills girls even cavorted in one of Saddam Huessein’s palaces earlier this year. But I had no idea they were allowed to handle the weaponry.

Hey Kids! Get Your NFL Cheerleader Tradin’ Cards

If you’ve yet to open that new Topps Jumbo Pack of NFL trading cards you just purchased (OK, lets face it: Your parents purchased for you), you’ve got an extra surprise in store. No, the Ben Roethlisberger card does not come with a denial of wrongdoing. It’s something better.

There’s one NFL cheerleader card in every pack. Yeah, there’s such a thing as Topps NFL cheerleader cards. Thank you, Topps, for inventing this years too late. Of course, you’re going to have to forage like a crazed homeless person to collect all 15 cheerleaders — there are only one per pack. But thus is the genius of the plan, as far as Topps is concerned.

Week In Review: Pitino Pays $3,000 For Abortion

Rick Pitino’s reputation has taken a huge hit, as the Louisville b-ball coach impregnated the woman who’s been trying to extort him, then paid $3,000 for the abortion.

And now Karen Sypher says her marriage to Cardinals equipment manager Tim was all just a sneaky plot by Pitino to keep an eye on her. But hey, don’t blame Rick - blame 9/11!

• The release party for the new Miami Dolphins cheerleaders bikini calendar was quite the spectacle.

Jay Mariotti denies that he’s going to be writing for the Chicago Tribune. Can’t wait to see Jay’s debut column in the Trib on September 1st!

Manny Ramirez gets a memorable reception from San Francisco Giants fans - the same kind of reception that Barry Bonds used to get everywhere else except in the Bay Area.

• Engaged Malibu fashion designer Ali Kay may have encouraged Reggie Miller’s unwanted advances by sending the ex-NBA star photos of herself in bed & in a bikini. At least Ali’s still pretty good at making clothes.

Ex-Cheerleader Will Stream Your Video Content

Yes, Josan Crawford (on the right, below) is the owner and co-founder of an Internet startup that features sports videos. But that’s where the similarities to Bill Gates or Mark Cuban end. Although I should reserve judgment until I’ve seen either of those guys in a Vikings cheerleader outfit.

Crawford is a veteran of the cheerleader wars, having served honorably with the Arena Football League’s Minnesota Fighting Pike cheerleaders; professional roller hockey’s Minnesota Arctic Blast cheerleaders, the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx Stunt Team, and four seasons as a Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader.

Dolphins Swimsuit Calendar Arrives With A Bang

So we’re starting to get a taste of what the new Stephen Ross/Jimmy Buffett administration is going to look like with the Miami Dolphins, and I can’t say it looks bad. Except for T-Pain arriving in a red hearse, that is. And the choice of venue.

While the Bills and Titans were kicking off the season in the Hall of Fame Game, the Dolphins were taking care of really important business — throwing a party to introduce the new Dolphins Cheerleaders Calendar. That included rapper T-Pain, who arrived in a hearse and then proceeded to unveil a new mix version of the team fight song. Meanwhile, outside, cops got angry and began yelling at his entourage. It’s going to be a fun season!

Cheerleader Dodges Death, Makes Calendar Cover

Back-to-back titles — so rare in the NFL, except if you’re Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Adriene B. The Ravens don’t give out full names of their cheerleaders (although Adriene was a cheerleader at South Carroll High and the University of Maryland, so any of you Cavaliers or Terrapins who know her might want to check in). Anyway, she made back-to-back covers of the Ravens’ cheerleader calendar, a great accomplishment indeed.

Adriene B Ravens cheerleader

But professional cheerleading is also fraught with danger. Aside from the clumsy groping of drunken fans and of course Joe Flacco’s scattershot passing accuracy, there’s also the terror of wild deer! Leaving her home home town of Mt. Airy, MD, to catch a flight for the calendar shoot in the Dominican Republic last year, she hit a deer, which went through her windshield.

(More pics after the jump - of Adriene, not the deer.)
