The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader’s reputation was compromised from the beginning due to their skimpy uniforms and proactive dance moves. When the cheerleaders first came out, many people found them as a sexy tease. As the cheerleaders gained popularity, they became flooded with publicity deals and contracts.
