    Or maybe, we could just play football...when did that stop being enough...I feel like a curmudgeon, but can't football just be football....I don't want an awareness, or a public service message, or a cause...at least not during the damn game...

    Cancer is a devastating disease, and I'm all for awareness, but a month is too long. It's almost a fourth of the season. Or is it a quinth? J/K.

    Pink may go well with some uniform colors, but some are downright hideous - like with the Browns uniform. And then they got the idea to make the yellow down line on TV pink??? That is just wrong. Why not paint the goal posts pink too? Heck, they can even use pink chalk for the yardmarkers and sidelines. Maybe we should go pink here at DaBears.com too. How does this look????

    Do pink for a week or maybe two and move on. Enough is enough.

    There's a ton more better ways to promote awareness than using players as billboards & then telling players they can't promote others. Sure, it's the owners game with rules that need to be followed but running a program disguised as caring when they just want to make the game more female friendly while ignoring other serious diseases is ridiculous.

    Marshall's just acting out a bit but the platform he's using is from the NFL's opening of Pandora's box for self serving reasons. Both need a boot in the ass IMO...

    My problem is that I have a difficult time understanding these players sometimes. It's just an alien world to me. I wear what my employer tells me to wear. I do what my employer tells me to do. From my time in the Marines to being a police officer for decades after that, I had to wear a uniform. I just accepted it. If I insisted on wearing green shoes "for a good cause" well......bad things would happen to me if I insisted on doing things MY way.

    Marshall makes millions of dollars a year. I'd think that would be enough pay to wear the shoes your employer asked you to wear. But that's just "me" and like I said, I have a tough time relating to these pampered millionaires. It must be one hellofa gig.

    Coaches now are basically baby sitters for a lot of egos & "head cases" that have never had a "real" job in their entire lives. The "rules" have never really applied to them. I think that's one reason why so many screw up their lives. They've never learned to live in a society with rules. The rules were always for other people (even during their college years they are treated like gods). It's also one reason, perhaps, why so many of them struggle when their careers end, and they are no longer "privileged" people. I "get it" that this is just the way it is.

    Just a sad sign of the times...

    The Entitlement Era where everyone is a person with rights anywhere & at anytime. BS...

    As I tell the guys at work 'This isn't a democracy, it's a benevolent dictatorship'. Sure the owners are greedy & in it for the money but if they sign the paychecks, you do what you agreed to do which is follow the rules. Of course, if you've got the talent, you keep making a fool of yourself cuz you have the safety net of another greedier owner who will take you aboard which just keeps the circle of stupidity going. That strategy works until your talent drops off & you're more a pain in the ass...hello, TO.

    Just a shame that a common sense issue is distorted nowadays.

    I'm thinking of telling MY boss that I'm coming to work tomorrow in my underwear (a clean pair), and drink beer all day at my desk. I don't think I'll shave either. Just sit around in my undies, fart a bit, and drink beer. It's for a "good cause" so surely he'll let me do this. Right?
