NFL denies DeAngelo Williams' request to raise breast cancer awareness all season

DeAngelo Williams lost his mom last year to breast cancer. He said he has also lost 4 aunts to breast cancer and acknowledges the role it plays in his family. This is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so he is allowed to wear pink gear like wrist bands and shoes while playing, but the NFL said he couldn't wear pink the rest of the year to continue to raise awareness for breast cancer. What the hell? He should just wear pink shoes anyway, and tell those creeps to go mind their own business.

Nothing wrong with pink anyway.

Good job, NFL. Way to show you really do care for women.....

You do know that they get fined for wearing the wrong socks, right?

Well, he doesn't have to wear pink socks, but it would look better....

Why can't he wear pink shoes? Or have pink accessories like wristbands or gloves? None of those things are necessarily part of the "uniform" doled out by the team. He wouldn't be wearing a pink grill on his helmet (whatever those things are called), or a pink helmet even. Again, it would probably look better if he did!

Oh my god I would push the rules anywhere I could if those guys told me I couldn't do something positive like that. There is a picture of his hair, and he has pink in it, stuff like that.
