Refs will wear pink

During October, NFL officials will wear a pink ribbon patch and a pink bracelet to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It’s the second consecutive year the NFL Referee Association has partnered with Dallas-based Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The partnership will be formally announced Sunday at Texas Stadium before the Cowboys’ game against Washington. NFLRA officials will present a check to Komen representatives.

That’s kinda nice.  They were wearing them for the Monday Night game (on September 29), so I wonder if that crew got the memo.

    YUCK…. I have had treatment for bc and I know that I am not alone when I say “I HATE PINK.”

    It has gotten out of hand. Breast cancer is a disease ladies and gentlemen, not a merchandising opportunity.

    Curious – where exactly does Komen spend the money?

  2. Goatwhacker says:

    I have had several uninsured patients who were able to get a mammogram at no cost through the Susan G Komen organization, so while I don’t know what they do with ALL the money they do seem to do some good things with it.

    Having said that, from a selfish standpoint I wish they’d stay away from the NFL. Ed Hochuli wearing a pink bracelet? Please God no.
