    That's pretty classy of anyone in the NFL to do. I've recently lost 2 grandparents to cancer. So it's a cool thing to see these "tough guys" do this.

    the auctions for those items should raise some good money for the cause too. Very nice of them.

    I lost my mom to breast cancer two months before my wedding, and my aunt (her sister) last year, so I say this is awesome.

    On a related note, one of my favorite Pats mini-helmets in my collection is the pink one. You might remember those from a few years ago, a percentage of the price went to breast cancer research. ;)

    I'd say that Terdell Smith is most at risk for breast cancer. Interestingly, it's possible yet rare in males.

    There was a male TV anchor within the last 5yr or so to beat breast cancer... So yeah, it is possible but rare in males.

    It's good that they are doing this and I hope it raises $ for breast cancer research.

    I hope that they don't overdo it like baseball did.

    That is what I meant about baseball. You can bring attention to something without making it look silly. I hope that you are wrong.

    Ok so I googled it after blabbing what I heard.

    The padding on the goal posts will be pink and the ball will have a pink ribbon insigna on it.

    It's for a great cause and I don't mind it one bit just found it weird when I heard the goal posts would be pink. It's the padding not the whole posts.

    Last time I trust a radio guy.

    PROPAGANDA... some day they will find a cure for cancer, find Osama Bin Laden, AND the magic bullet that killed JFK.

    :p

    I thought the thread was going to show hot chicks or something.

    Do you guys have these in the US? They're all over the place here. I gotta admit, I concur.

    It's a great cause, but it's hard not to wonder how so much money is leading to so little progress.

    Boy, I tell ya whoever organizes the fund raising for breast cancer is a genius. Other cancer organizations are jealous - and I mean that literally. Advocates for other types of cancer feel they miss out on funding and donations since so much goes to breast cancer.

    Still, it is a very noble endeavor and it is nice to see the players bringing awareness.

    Just another point for Moss. I really wonder when the jerks in the media like Felger and Callahan are going to give Moss his due.

    Ochocinco said on PTI he plans to get fined for wearing too much pink, "probably done in by the chinstrap," and will match the fine and donate it to charity.

    lol

    Short answer: Do you see healthy people in hospitals?

    The answer lies within the question.

    Their marketing plan is interesting fwiw... but big pharma is a racket.

    Yup, I hope we beat cancer like a rented mule. I really hope cancer has feelings so it hurts when we kill it.

    Yeah, big pharma is a "racket". They could cure it but they don't. Any evidence of that? Why don't you cure it if it's so easy?

    I think it's a little stupid. I mean sure, everyone WANTS there to be a cure for something like breast cancer. What about strokes, diabetes, PROSTATE cancer (why do you never hear about the death due to that? Is it because men aren't PC), etc. etc. etc.

    Why are there so many diseases which are at the back of the bus when it comes to publicity or funding? While the glamorous ones, breast cancer and AIDS, are at the front?

    If October is breast cancer awareness, can November be "high blood pressure" awareness? See how stupid this gets? As for Moss getting points for being a great guy...for what? Wearing pink gloves? That took a lot of effort for him to do that, I bet.
