It's just a minor annoyance - that's all. Nobody is knocking the support of breast cancer. The hot pink on the cleats, the wristbands, the towels, the refs - it just gets to be a little - nothing compared to the inconvenience of having the cancer, that I understand. We are just expressing ourselves here.

Anytime someone does something for a charity and shows it off, it's not for good intentions. NFL is lacking in the female viewership. So why not have breast cancer awareness on something that doesn't get watched by a lot of women? FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!

Their marketing department is genious though. Should increase the ratings because a lot of women love pink and guys in uniforms.


But at a certain point people will become numb and forget about the pink. Then they might need to go back to regular uniforms and then we can call it Testicular Awareness.

I can't believe you guys are even having this conversation and myself, many women I know have been watching football for years before the pink routine.

Don't give Jerry Jones any ideas! He may have the Cowboys wear yet another alternate jersey.
