NFL to use pink penalty flags in Dolphins-Jets game

Dante Cano wrote a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and asked whether the league would consider using pink penalty flags as part of their commemoration. He asked if Goodell would “please write back” but Goodell did the young man one better and implemented his plan.

“Dante had a great idea and I am looking forward to meeting with him on Sunday to put it into action,” Goodell said in a statement from the league. “Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the best. I applaud Dante for sending in his recommendation.”

1. Aren't the players using pink towels to dry their hands?

2. There is entirely too much pink on the field now

The shoes, the gloves, the towels, the arm bands . . . ENOUGH!

3. One more weekend.

I think it's for the month of October only. I know it's for a good cause, but I'm sick of it, too.

4. I'm waiting for pink fields in October

Make us all wistful for Boise State's "Smurf turf"

I agree, this is way overdone. Fighting breast cancer is important but I'm highly skeptical that this cultish display makes a lick of real difference.

5. Jets-Dolphins?

Does that game even count?

6. Why wouldn't it?

Dolphins are playing well for a new coach and a rookie QB.
