Team officials said Davis was in violation of the rules that "prohibit cheerleaders from appearing nude, semi nude or in lingerie", as per the New York Times.

A former cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints has filed a complaint after the football team gave her the boot over a rule-violating Instagram photo - a move she says proves the Saints are discriminating against women.

The Saints claim these rules are set in place to protect cheerleaders from players preying on them.

The complaint says that Saints cheerleaders received guidance verbally and via email that outlined the ways cheerleaders should avoid interacting with National Football League players.

"Very poor judgment to post a picture like that especially considering our recent conversations about the rumors going around about u", Saintsations senior director Ashley Deaton texted Davis (pictured below on the right) four days before she was sacked, referencing a rumor that the cheerleader had attended the same party as a player. The Saints say their conduct rules apply across the board and say Davis was not treated any differently on account of her sex.

"If a cheerleader is in a restaurant and a player arrives afterward, she must leave".

Weekend high temperatures will likely top out in the mid 50s both days, which is close to average for late March into early April. Highs will range from the mid 40s in North Jersey and along the Jersey Shore, to near 50 degrees for interior South Jersey.

Davis and her attorney claim that the policy is so strict that if a player enters a restaurant that a cheerleader is in, the cheerleader has to leave. Davis denied breaking that rule. "For now, it is sufficient to say that Ms. Davis was not subject to discrimination because of her gender".

"Honestly when I posted it, I was thinking more it was a strong picture, it showed my muscle tone", said Davis.

Davis also contends, "The antiquated stereotype of women needing to hide for their own protection is not permitted in America and certainly not in the workplace". She was allegedly called into a team meeting, where she denied attending the party and was told the Saints had no evidence to prove it. "This does not help your case".

The Saints responded to The Times with a statement that said, "At the appropriate time and in the appropriate forum, the Saints will defend the organization's policies and workplace rules". Always had to double check for Instagram posts, we were always checking on each other, you know, 'maybe don't post that. Buffalo Bills cheerleaders, before the squad disbanded in the face of a wage lawsuit, said they were told to do jumping jacks in tryouts to see if their flesh jiggled and had to attend a golf tournament for sponsors in which wealthy men paid cash to watch bikini-clad cheerleaders do back flips.

Well, not if you are a cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints.

Saints players, meanwhile, are allowed to follow any account they choose and do not have to make their profiles private. She was told it could attract attention from players.
