    I don't have enough high-fives for this thread. It's a total sham and it's unfortunate that more people don't see it.

    I'm still waiting on the blue flags and a full month dedicated to ball cancer. I don't see women getting their vaginas kicked in their stomach on a consistent basis. They don't even need tits, balls are 100% necessary.

    Now, you tell me, why do they get a full month and the real travesty gets nothing?

    because balls are either offensive or used for comic relief. buys right into the disposable male stereotype.

    You have to be careful with MRA's. They have a stigma for just bashing feminism and not focusing on actual issues. Such as alimony, child support/custody, and the legal system treating female offenders much lighter.

    I agree, it's a great cause, lost a friend to Breast Cancer, but it's overdone.
    The flags are too much, what's next pink footballs? pink pucks? and the pink shoes are way too much, CJ is already dancing around he doesn't need pink shoes to add to it!

    Why only focus on breast cancer and not cancer in general? - That's racism!

    Seriously, just because breasts are sexy, they're running with all the attention. My testies are jealous and wants some love. It's a failed attempt of political correctness, just because it's a guys sport.

    Yea its like I said, all about gaining female viewers.

    Im also sure they somehow come out on top with tax breaks.

    The league doesnt do this to be nice, theyre making money off this stuff.

    It makes me sick when I think about where this league is headed. Everything has to be politically correct, no one can hit anyone anymore without getting a personal foul and fines be everywhere. I miss watching football 10 years ago, that was good football! We were also a great team but that is besides the point. This cancer awareness is over the top as stated before in this thread. Like someone said, if they cared then they should mention that they donate money. Maybe they could donate all the money from fines to this cause.
