Prettier Than Losing

I've never understood the reasons behind teams like the Giants making it clear that cheerleaders are not a part of their football vision. When the game on the field gets ugly, those cheerleaders are sometimes the only vision worth seeing.
I don't think for one second that the absence of cheerleaders detracts from the game experience, but the teams that have them are providing a service for their fans. What's better than being at a football game, beer in hand watching hot women jumping around in little outfits? Cheerleaders have always gone hand in hand with football, from the young pee wee teams on up. Why mess with tradition?
In addition, from a business standpoint cheerleaders provide many opportunities for profit and community relations. Calendars, photo shoots, and paid appearances all bring in revenue for the team. Having beautiful women to offer for charity events and team promotional campaigns brings a better and more attractive visibility to the brand. Without cheerleaders a team has only their players to offer and let's face it, most of them are not nearly as good-looking.
And you can take the "it's degrading to women" and "it's inappropriate for children" arguments and shove it. Having your beauty admired by thousands can be an empowering experience. If my daughter wants to put on a skirt and cheer for her team one day, I have no problem with that. As long as she's not cheering for the Cowboys.
