Why are They Called “Cheer Leaders” When They Don’t Actually Lead Any Cheers?

Upon reading this post by DrewM at Ace of Spades HQ and seeing yet another of the hawt “cheer leader” pictures posted with the football threads, I was inspired to write the following…

I think we need a new name for so-called cheer leaders.

I mean, do they lead any cheers during games? No. Does anyone other than the people right in the section where they are standing actually look at the “cheer leaders” during the game? No, they’re watching the actual football game. And does anyone care what the “cheer leaders” are doing or saying, or are they just getting off (figuratively of course, hopefully no one is in the stands actually getting off) on looking at hot chicks in skimpy clothing? I’d say the latter.

All the “cheer leaders” do is wear skimpy clothing showing off their bodies and dance around in a sexually provocative manner. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I wouldn’t call that “cheer leading”)

In other words, they’re nothing more than exotic dancers who don’t take their clothes off. Of course, they don’t wear much to begin with, so it’s not that big of a deal.

So, I think the term “cheer leader” is outdated, since they obviously no longer lead any cheers. They are basically PG-13-rated exotic dancers.

Just look at the “cage dancers” at the new Texas Stadium. That’s all the “cheer leaders” are, except they’re on the field/sidelines.

So, any suggestions for a new name for “cheer leaders”?

Also… this goes goes for “cheer leaders” of any sport, not just the NFL.  NBA, college football, college basketball, whatever.

UPDATE 10/14/2009:  Heh, had this response to my post in the comments section over at Ace of Spades HQ.  Thought it was great:

True ’nuff, for sure — but somehow I don’t think “NFL Eye Candy Squads” would go over too well as a more accurate descriptive title. Apparently some of those women have, like, pride ‘n’ sh!t . . .

“NFL Eye Candy Squads”.  That’s a winner in my book.  Heh
