Well, they were originally part of the marching bands of the teams. 26 of 32 teams have them and whilst you do think they are needed, they provide a great service to their communities helping with charity events and other gatherings. Many of them are in college while they cheer so even though they don't make much (federal minimum), they often only stay for 1 to 4 seasons. The cheerleaders also help to bring morale and support to soldiers overseas with different shows and stuff they do worldwide.
I do understand your point though.
