Hopefully they're just cards or something. I don't want to be looking at pink all game.

You know, I love boobs as much as the next guy, and I know it's for cancer (I know way more than I'd want to know about cancer), but really....the pink stuff is overboard.

Have everyone wear a ribbon on their jersey or helmet and paint the ribbon on the field.

Simple is better.

I like it. Great way to bring about awareness and support. Plus, I do like a little change up now and then.

all this pink breast cancer awareness is nothing but a sham.

A TOTAL CORPORATE SHAM SO YOU CAN BUY PINK NFL GEAR being masqueraded and packaged as some righteous moral health cause.

Not buying it.

There's a disconnect between Mr. Rogers and his offensive line? Oh my, so many of our guys are going to have fun with that.

Anytime large corporations do something for the public good it should be cause for celebration, not ridicule. A lot of companies do things in different ways to raise money for charities. For instance, at Memorial Hermann they sell “Jeans Day” passes whereby you can purchase passes to wear your blue jeans to work bypassing the normal dress code. The money goes to different charitable organizations, like the United Way and such. It’s a good thing.

That's why I was asking. I wasn't entirely sure if the proceits benefited breast cancer organizations. Since it does, I don't think it is a "sham" at all, like what DTE said.

Here's a link arguing DTE's case (http://theweek.com/article/index/234771/is-the-nfl-profiting-off-of-breast-cancer-awareness-month). The NFL is doing charitable work, for which they should be commended. The 5% donation seems a little small, but that's a matter up for debate.

And here's a link that says the opposite.

There's no way for anyone outside the NFL to truly know.

LOL. At least DTE can make reasonable arguments in complete sentences. We had a few months this past offseason where this board had an influx of new posters spelling like 5th graders.

I hate looking at the pink crap on the uniforms but at the same time I understand it's for a good cause so by no means am I saying they should stop doing it. I'd just like to point out that due to a number of poor Texans performances in October in years past I've got this irrational connection in my head. When they have the pink crap on they play terrible. I know it's just a coincidence and the pink has nothing to do with it.

Good post.

I lost an aunt, and nearly lost another because of it. Never will I complain about it. "Oh it's a good cause, but..." Sorry, can't do it.

Thank you. MSR.

I am not affected by Breast Cancer personally, but I understand the cause and love the work the NFL does for it. I don't care if you don't like the pink, at least respect it. Thanks again.

As someone with boobs, just STFU pink haters. It's for a good cause. People will find a reason to ***** about anything.

Oh get off your high horses people. I've lost MULTIPLE people to cancer. Just because I think it looks dumb and out of place in football doesn't mean anything.

Oh no, but I don't have boobs, so I can't comment and your comments mean more because you do. Do I have that right, Jen? Got it. Nevermind that guys can get breast cancer too. And nevermind that nobody is immune to any cancer in general.
