    I know this is politically incorrect, but...

    ...I HATE the stinking PINK!!!

    Someone--I believe it was TexasPat--took a beating for expressing a similar sentiment last year, but after further review, I agree with him 100%.

    I am ALL FOR the NFL stepping up to fight breast cancer...I just think there are other ways to do it.

    yeah there really is to much pink right now. It looks horrible on the hats too. There's got to be a better way to include it without it looking like a poodle throw up on the equipement after eating a mixture of pink cotton candy and pepto bismol

    F*ck political correctness. It's a cancer that's been ruining this country for a long time. A few people telling many people what to think & say. They can stick a fist up their as*hole. Then I'll kick them in the elbow.

    ROFL, I know your not calling me a pink hat Kansas but even you have to agree that it looks like they tried to stick pink into everything they could. I say they should just put 2-4 pink ribbons on the field. Pink ribbon patch on the jerseys then have a simply hand shake agreement where each player wears 1 pink thing (or more if they choose to), whether it be shoes or an arm band. But everywhere you look there it is. Arm bands, hats, shoes, chin straps, towels, jerseys, all of Mannings bedroom. Just to much pink it's overkill

    I admire the cause.  It's a good one.  But yeah, there is some oddity in seeing football players wearing pink.  It's almost like having our Green Berets wear pink.  It's also the only month that Sanchez can dust off his regular clothes and wear them to the game.

    It really doesn't bother me though that they do it.  They're helping a good cause, even if the choice of that particular cause is likely also business related (attracting female fans).

    It's a great cause and I walk for breast cancer every year but they can be more tactful about it. I liked it a couple years ago where during slow points in the games the announcers talked about it and brought up awareness. I think that does more good then over killing the pink. I'd much rather have the nfl give up those short 30s commercials between scoring and extra points and plug the cause and places you can donate. It feels like all the pink is less about awareness and more about trying to attract ladies to buy the newly pinked colored apparel

    now that would be great. I've had melanoma in the past and continued to get screened every year (I average a surgery every couple years most as a precaution. Most of the time it's negative but every so often I get a positive). It's one of the more deadly cancers out there and is hard to detect if you don't know what to look for yet most people don't even know what it is. It would be great if they could bring awareness to all cancers.

    Glad that you beat it and get screened every year! Bringing awareness to all of the different types of Cancer would be better than giving the majority of the attention to one specific Cancer.

    I got lucky. My doctor noticed that a mole looked a bit funny and sent me to a specialist. When they cut it out it was already a tumor that was growing. Luckily they caught it early enough that they just cut it out (literally a 1"x.5"x1.5" cube was cut out of my back). Melanoma is one of those cancers that if you catch it early you can just cut it out but if you don't it doesn't take long before they can't do anything except for radiation treatments and hope. I've heard though that they are very excited about a possible vaccination that's currently in trials. I'm very thankful I no longer qualify for the trials since my last positive was 2 years ago and my first 15 years ago.

    Melanoma is something that can grow/spread and you have no clue that you have it.  Most people who have moles ignore them, not knowing they could be cancerous.

    Does anybody besides me think the NFL would be better served to take the money it is spending on pink paraphernalia and simply donating it to oranizations that promote breast cancer awareness and prevention?

    not a jab at you, but when did we all decide to associate color to things, especially when you cant even describe a color because it has no definition? Example: Green; feces can be green, mucus is green, money is green. Are those things clean, no, but green is associated with being clean and environmentally safe. Can some explain to me how the color pink expresses breast cancer? Men also wear the color pink and can also develop forms of breast cancer, so its not a feminine thing. 

    How about not wasting money on making things pink and give all that money directly to multiple cancer(non-profit) research groups. But hey, I don't run the show, so they can do whatever they think is best.

    Re: I know this is politically incorrect, but...

    It's scary stuff Rocky and the majority of Doctors don't even know exactly what they are looking for unless it just plain looks weird. I get screened at MGH every year and even the best experts in the world look and miss it. My guy literally says I'm not sure if this is just a mole or if it could be something else. So what they do is called a topical biopsy where they cut the top of the mole off with a razor blade then check (it leaves a white circle with a pink ring as a scar and sometimes if it was a large mole the ring of the mole, it's really weird looking). If there is any doubt that it's not just a typical mole they go in and cut the mole out root and all (typically the scar left behind is about 3/4" by 1/4" with 3-5 stich marks surrounding the scar). If it doesn't look right again they go in and cut out up to 1/2" around the original location of the mole and about 1/2" deep (typically this leaves a huge scar. I have a couple and each are about 1.5" long and about 3/4" wide with about 7-10 stich tracks along the edges. Those parts never feel the same again). Unfortunately that's their only methods of good detection right now. It can be a bit weird and hard explaining a bunch of those types of scars on your back and chest to your girlfriend. I still won't take my shirt off at the beach because I have gotten looks from the scars before. Yet most people will never get screened for an odd looking mole because they don't want the scar or don't know it could be cancerous
