The Miami Dolphins pronounced in a matter to a BBC News: “We are severely committed to providing a certain work sourroundings for everybody compared with a organisation.

“We reason each member of a organization to a same standards and do not distinguish as it relates to gender, competition and eremite beliefs.”

“Everyone who works in a NFL, including cheerleaders, has a right to work in a certain and deferential sourroundings that is giveaway from any and all forms of nuisance and taste and entirely complies with state and sovereign laws.”
