NFL and the color pink.


I'm all for breast cancer awareness. Everyone is, and I can see wearing it for a week or two but come on. A whole month?

Jeez

I seem to remember last year that only in one week were guys required to wear it, but still, it was pretty damn old by the end of October. I just wanna drain some cold ones on Sunday and forget about life, not think about disease.

I support one week of the pink, not a whole month. I am a big fan of titties also.

Farrah Fawcett died from anal cancer. Why aren't they commemorating that?

There are certainly more appropriate illnesses the NFL can be mouthpieces for. The league can't exactly tell its fans, by nature of being mostly male, to go get mammograms. Would make a lot more sense to pick something they can influence.

PR stuntish/pandering for the female support to make it a whole month.

Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on pink shoes, ref whistles, towels, etc. why not donate that funding to breast cancer research?

I can see a week of really showing it but after that a patch on the jersey or a wristband and sticker on the helmet should suffice.

Guys aren't required to wear it. They do by choice. Supersticious guys still wear their regular stuff.

NFL isn't requiring anyone to wear pink.

The Susan B. Kohlman people spend millions of dollars defending their pink ribbons from being used by other cancer charities. They should use that money for research too.

Wearing the color pink will not cure cancer.

It's the truth.

It's also a Roger initiative, which is obvious.

Snyders wife started it and Tagliabue endorsed, but its Goodell's fault? If the owners didn't want it it wouldn't happen. You going to blame Goodell for the Hindenburg WW 2 and the Taliban also?

It's not Roger doing it, it is the owners. He works for them. He takes all the heat from people that don't get this.

When media turned on owners for ref lockout instead of blaming Roger, what happened?
