    So sick of every October having to see these stupid pink accessories on the uniforms. It's pandering bullshit. One week would be fine but a whole month is over the line.

    There is even a term for it "Pink Fatigue" and some breast cancer advocates question if the stupid shit is even effective.

    i agree. Football is only on for a few months. a whole month of pink is a bit much. im ok with dedicating a week

    Baseball does it tactfully, on Mothers Day pink, Fathers Day Blue (for prostate cancer) I guess the NFL could give a fuck less about prostate cancer.

    No, it is just that the organizers of breast cancer work harder. They organize walks, push their agenda. I told another person who was upset that they didn't do enough for heart disease that he should donate time and money to the cause. You could always volunteer for prostate cancer's cause.

    I wish that they would take the money that they spend making all of this pink uniform crap funding some sort of legitimate cancer cause.

    Everyone who I know who did a Susan G. Komen walk doesn't even do it anymore because the funding is so screwed up.
