    It looks bad and it's distracting as hell. I understand the NFL is promoting support for breast cancer, and that's well and good, but seriously…….

    Aaron Rogers is wearing a pink Green Bay Packers ball cap. It doesn't even have the bill rolled…….what the hell! :impatient:

    It is annoying as crap. Nothing more than NFL grandstanding to look like they are doing something, and to attract female viewers.

    Good with me. The females in my family have been decimated by breast cancer including my mother who is currently taking chemo. Bringing awareness and financially helping the cause has my full support.

    Breast cancer is already one of the most well-funded studies without this extra pink crap. It's just a feel-good thing for bored housewives.

    If the NFL just shows they care... More women will watch... Thus higher ratings = $$$$$$

    I think topless cheerleaders with pink body paint would work best. Pleases the guys and shows they support breast cancer research.

    Don't get me wrong, fellas. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, but there is a time and a place for everything.

    I've rarely ever seen such a blatant cash grab my ANY sport. Getting ratings up is one thing, but really…..can it get any more flagrant than this?

    The Texans cheerleaders looked good in their pink outfits though.

    Compare the stats between prostate cancer in men, and breast cancer for women. Seemed pretty comparable.
    It just seems overdone. Pink gloves, towels, shoes, ribbons, pom poms, hats etc. Plus it's the whole month. Give them a game, or throw a pink ball a few times a game and call it good.
    Anyone see the pink fire apparatus or pink turnout gear? Oh joyous....

    The typical American male these days is alot more, "Girly" than the men of say the World War two era.

    So, I think the pink is quiet fitting if you ask me. :whistling:

    My mother survived breast cancer so I'm cool with the NFL showing their support. It will all be over in a couple weeks anyways so it's not a big deal.

    yet breast cancer awareness month pink stuff has been going on for months now. They were wearing it in the opening day game.
    Breast cancer awareness month seems to be Jan - Dec these days

    I think the NFL is doing pink stuff the whole season, not just this one month.

    They are in their 4th year of doing this. If you didn't know, they always do it in October, which happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness month.

    I really don't see the problem. This effort not only raises money, but raises awareness. If you ever lose a family member to breast cancer like I have, you might have a hard time seeing the harm in raising any awareness.

    Logic has no place on this site anymore. It is full of people just looking for some emotional outrage of something they can criticize..

    Thankfully the advancements in detection, treatment and a rise in overall awareness over the years which have been spurred by funding has given my mom a chance to be a survivor. She is still battling it and isn't out of the woods but if it were 10 years ago it would have probably been missed until it was too late.

    I support the NFL for lending the clout of their brand to the cause.
