How much of the profits go to breast cancer prevention programs? Otherwise, this is all a big sham to sell more apparel. I would like to see the NFL do PSAs about the importance of getting checked...

The pink color on apparel and uniforms look ****ing retarded. Cancer ****ing sucks, better to take your $$$$ and just donate it than buy this pink ****.

To all of you that think this is a "sham" to sell apparel. You may notice that about 90% of the items in this group . . .
"A portion of the proceeds from this (hoodie) funds breast cancer research, making you an essential part in the fight against this disease."
So, i don't see how this isn't a win-win situation?
Money for cancer research.
Good-looking Broncos clothing.
Spreading the word about breast cancer screenings.
Maybe I'm dense.

You appeared to be a spammer or even spam-bot, until this. Its frowned upon here to have your first post be advertising, even if it is directly for the Broncos store... hell we're dealing with thousand plus post members who get criticized for writing books about Floyd Little or boot camp and mentioning them on this site. You're clearly not interested in the actual contribution and growth of this site, only putting $ back into the Broncos organization, so you need to have a backbone when people here attack you.

Also, I give you another hour before the mods move/delete this thread. Its still spam... even if well intentioned spam that some might have interest in.

Herp derp, this month is totally geared toward attracting females to the NFL who dont care in general. Along with that, it gets donations from those who 9 times out of 10 wouldn't donate period.

You have breast gland tissue. It carries the potential to develop cancer.

I'd agree it's a spam thread but a strange one. The guy apparently has no personal interest he's trying to promote. Maybe he's a Broncos shop worker trying to advertise? Weird thread.

Yep. Marketing scheme, plain and simple.

An organization that's 100% male that until recently ONLY did breast cancer awareness. No testicular, colon, etc... just breast cancer. The pink stuff is popular and it has a market that the NFL would love to be able to tap. Slap some pink on football gear and the sales take off. They could care as much about breast cancer, in reality, as every NFL player does for the token charity cause he takes up when he becomes a millionaire.

Isn't it more fatal in men? Due to lateness of detection...etc?

Exactly! I dont think it is being politically incorrect but what straight guy that loves the manly sport of football would ever wear Broncos gear with pink in it? If you want to be lambasted, here is your chance. When is the NFL going to realize that their fanbase is big with, get this, MEN! Yes, men and football are probably the biggest percentage. When do we see Prostate Cancer Awareness month? Many men will die from this cancer and it is almost 100% chance of dying from this sick cancer disease. Wake up NFL and start looking at ways to stop cancer that hits men.

BTW, I have said before and I will say it again, women wearing pink jerseys is a show of "Look at me and my tight pinkk jersey and not my absolute disregard for any deep knowledge of my team!"

I believe they did prostate or colon cancer last year but as was already said, it's not their goal. They're already popular with men so they don't need to go out of their way to woo them. Also, breast cancer awareness is infinitely more mainstream, marketable, positively looked up, etc, so they're just jumping on the bandwagon.
