Team statement on the Buffalo Jills

"Buffalo Bills fans have long appreciated the Buffalo Jills cheerleaders as a part of the game day entertainment. Additionally, our organization recognizes the significant contribution that members of the Buffalo Jills have played in supporting many charitable organizations in our community.

As part of running a professional football team, the Bills organization retains a number of third party vendors to provide ancillary services on game days. These services include, among others, parking services, concessionaire services and cheerleading services.

For decades the Buffalo Jills trademark has been licensed to independent third parties who have assumed the responsibility for the selection, management, training, scheduling and compensation of the cheerleaders.

We are aware of public statements and allegations that have surfaced since the start of the recent litigation which attempt to give the impression that our organization employs cheerleaders. Such statements are inaccurate and misleading. Today we responded to these allegations as part of the legal process and remain confident in our position in this matter."
