    In 2010 the NFL had over 2 Billion dollars in merchandise sales.

    So to get an idea of what 8% is, lets do the math. 2,100,000,000/12=175,000,000*.08

    So the league hands over around $14million for breast cancer research. Not too shabby

    Hey, I did my bit for breast cancer month. Or at least tried. I offered to give free breast exams to all female employees under 35. As I read somewhere most women do not start checking early enough.

    I do my small part every time I go out for lunch. Everywhere around here asks for donations and I always give out $1.
