  • Yeah every game I watched, the commentators were confused by the flag color.

    Some things you just shouldn't mess with. We're too used to yellow flags.

  • I wish they would do away with all the pink crap. Lots of other cancers just as important as breast cancer that could benefit from the awareness. Breast cancer is over killed. We get it.

    How about child cancer, prostrate cancer, etc? Or better yet stop using the NFL as an advertising machine for the Kommen machine.

    Don't get me wrong... Breast cancer awareness is important too. Just would like to see others in the spotlight.

    Breast cancer is not important to the NFL. Getting extra fans to dump money into their product is.

    I do agree that they should switch it up and bring awareness to some other types of cancer that are lesser-known. Is anyone really that unaware that they need to check for breast cancer every now and then?

  • The whole pink this should be limited to one week IMO. I respect the heck out of the cause but do we really need a whole month every year?

    I agree.

    Plus the flags should be brown to match the shotty calls.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I read earlier this morning that the NFL is actually not affiliated with Komen anymore, and is instead partnered with the American Cancer Society.

    Regardless of who they associate with to promote breast cancer awareness, they are simply involved to draw in new money from a largely untapped market (for them.)

  • I have offered women to check for breast cancer for years. Usually ends with a slap / beer in my face

    When the NFL does their part to send the same message then suddenly it is a great thing.......

    Maybe they should go with blue flags - goes nice with pink

  • Maybe they could have drawings.

    Ticket number 53423 come down to the mid-field for a twofer. 1) you get to walk on the field in halftime 2) prostate exam for all to see

    Or TO can come back to Dallas and get examined on the logo he spiked the ball on....

    I agree. It should be changed to Cancer Awareness Month. A single cancer should not be the focus of everyone's attention when there are so many more types out there.

    I agree with this. My grandparents died of cancer. I have lost neighbors and classmates to cancer. I've had friends battle it, including one who is terminal with pancreatic cancer and one just diagnosed with liver cancer.

    Cancer Awareness Month would be very useful.
