    NFL spokesman Michael Signora confirmed to NFL Media that the flags -- used to promote the NFL's breast cancer awareness initiative -- will no longer be used after Week 5.

    Other pink equipment will remain part of the NFL landscape through Week 7. That includes: cleats, wristbands, gloves, sideline hats, helmet decals, captains' patches, chin cups, shoe laces, skull caps, sideline towels, eye shield decals and quarterback towels.

    They take it to far. Putting a ribbon the field, and on the sideline apparel is plenty. Cleats,Gloves,Towels,Belts,Captain patch, chin straps, mouth pieces, wrist bands, etc is just too much. I like that they are supporting it, but I always thought it was bizarre that they don't do anything for Prostate or Testicular cancer. Unless i've just missed it. The NFL is doing wounded warrior gear this year btw. Hats with the bill in camo with a wounded warrior ribbon on the back.

    It just gives everybody another reason to not like Rodger Goodell. And I agree with every thing you said.

    That take it waaay too far. The NFL is super strict about everything else uniform related but somehow lets the players go wild with pink. Is it so wrong to stick to team colors? You can promote breast cancer awareness with a field logo, commercials, and using NFL talent to further the cause without going overboard on the field. Or just make it one game a year.

    I keep requesting for topless cheerleaders during the month of Oct. It just continues to fall on deaf ears. :)
