Lol^^^^ that's what I take it as. Innovation is nothing they care for.
Painting a helmet pink because of the influence of the mob is exactly like Galileo-so innovative.
It's not about painting the helmet pink, it is about the constant change of uniforms.
I would argue that we've reached, and passed, the point of diminishing returns. At this point its no longer about raising any sort of awareness because everyone's aware. They can't be unaware whatsoever thanks to the over-the-top, constant media blitz. Now its just constant fundraising, and that's a completely different animal.
People are simply saying, "Enough. We get it. Give it a rest. Yes yes...I will sign up for my free t-shirt when Race for the Cure rolls around."
That's a unique take on it.
Personally, I am infatuated with female breasts (some would call it an infantile infatuation) so encouraging women to take better care of them is all right by me.
The woman who's football loving husband just convinced her to get screened disagrees. That's the point.
There are millions that are aware and don't act. But every day the constant awareness pushes more people to act early.
Prevention and early diagnosis are our only cures right now.

I just don't think that's actually happening.
I don't care what Oregon wears and I certainly have no problem with breast cancer awareness. However, it would be nice if equal time/publicity was given to prostate cancer, which I seem to remember reading kills more people than breast cancer (could be wrong but whether right or wrong, prostate cancer is a serious problem for men).
Of course it happens. To what degree I have no idea.
I actually asked my wife when her next visit was just last week after all the uproar about our guys wearing pink. (she keeps a close eye due to her grandmother being a survivor.)
I'm sure there are guys who ask the same question and their wives say: "Its been a while, maybe I should go ahead and see my doctor." MILLIONS and MILLIONS watch these games. Odds are several people get early diagnosis from it.
I always tell my kids to look both ways when riding their bikes. They are aware of the danger....they roll their eyes every time. But guess what they sometimes do? They sometimes forget to look both ways. So by constantly telling them to do it, they are much more likely to.
Do I over saturate them with the reminder to look both ways? You bet I do. Do they get sick of the same repetitive message? You bet they do. So, Why do I do it?
Today may finally be the time that I tell them just before the pedal out of the diveway, and it may be the time that the teenager down the street comes flying around the corner in his 1997 RX7, and it might be the time that saves their life.
NO problem with those unis at all, whatever the reason they want to wear them. They look better than those unis the "Heels" wore last night agatinst FSU.
Have to disagree. NC unis looked great last night.
I think a lot of it Is showing respect to whoever has battled breast cancer and like you said remind people to get regular check ups.
Kids love this kind of stuff. Things are just different these days.
But a women is much more important to keep cancer free than a man. Therefore....
That reminds me ... Tilly, don't forget to get your check up ...:grin:
My mother died of breast cancer and most of the people I love have 2 of them so I'm all for it. I feel no pain at all if an athlete wears pink so I'm not about to suggest that my tastes are what matters most (I don't like the pink).
