    This has been assumed as obvious for a while, same thing with their promotion of the Army.

    What do you think they do with those fines they collect? I doubt even 8% goes towards "charity" or the vet pensions.

    Seriously, if they wanted to make a difference, they could go after their target audience and promote testicular or prostate cancer. You know, the things most of their audience have?

    They're deceiving people. No way around it. Pink is EVERYWHERE in October. Pink shoes, hats, gloves, flags. All to be auctioned off, which almost no one buys because it's done every year and the equipment holds no real value.

    The NFL could make a much bigger impact by just donating the money and we wouldn't have to deal with the facade of the NFL giving two shits about breast cancer.

    Anyone with a half a brain knows the NFL does this for recognition and to gain female fans.

    Why not a different awareness for every month? Because those other cancers don't pull at the heart strings like breast cancer does, which I've never understood.
