Discussion in 'RayGator's Swamp Gas' started by TheGator, Oct 4, 2013.
First up, 10 pages of 'discussion' on the merits or demerits(?) of supporting a charitable idea is, IMO, the most embarrassing issue here, not the 'wearing of pink'. Arguing the numbers, effectiveness of how it happened or, even more surprisingly, the team aesthetics seems pretty cold-hearted to me, but what do I know?
I lost my mother in law to breast cancer two years ago and our personal reminder is daily and it still hurts. My brother works for a leading charitable organisation and as he constantly tells me, the most effective way to keep donations coming is to keep in the spotlight. Fighting for charitable donations is obviously extremely tough right now, too.
I re-read most of the thread but couldn't see anything alluding to this so I hope you all picked it up in Muschamp's press conference: The players chose this. I support them 100% and applaud their convictions that they felt strongly enough to do it.
I'm currently raising money for Macmillan Cancer Care by going Sober for October. All donations are welcome...
Is this real life? People are actually online bitching about breast cancer awareness? If you are insecure enough to think that wearing pink is "atrocious" or "hideous" or any other negative adjective that you can think of, you might have an issue. How do football players wearing pink in support of breast cancer research/awareness have a negative impact on your life?
Get a grip and how about try entering reality? Can only imagine some douche bringing this up in a stadium or sports bar environment -- poor guy would get ragged on by everybody. But you go online and you find some strange birds that get their rocks off by criticizing anything and everything.
Pathetic? Is college and pro football supposed to be a "who can wear the most manliest uniform" competition or a football game? It's pathetic that you think such an issue can be pathetic.
I liked the uniforms. I hope we wear them at home for now on. It's great to be a Florida GATOR and I'm lovin it.
After watching the game, much ado about nothing.
It's pathetic, that's my opinion, I find yours pathetic too, slick
Will they wear pink again next week?
The contrast of 300lb manly dudes wearing pink is why it works. Kind of a weird thread.
Let the women's go topless for breast awareness in November
Uhh, well played, I guess.
Pink works for me, I think the Gators are undefeated wearing pink.:tongue:
We also had a thread arguing the inappropriateness of Chris DiMarco doing the Mr. Two Bits cheer. lain:
I started both threads.
I don't know, Sir! Is this a trick question, Sir!? Like Are we living in some sort of Matrix or a fish bowl on someone's desk kind of thing, Sir!?
Sir, Yes, Sir! Awaiting instructions on how best to proceed, Sir!
Is this intended as irony, Sir!?!
Again, Sir ... irony intended, Sir!?!
Funny. Made me laugh.
how about a blackout for uf at lsu! they will be wearing white.
Rant from Gator Country's Thor Kolnes
5. "I’VE HAD IT WITH PINK: This is just a general gripe, not directed at the Gators specifically but I am TIRED of seeing pink on football uniforms. I am aware of breast cancer. I make light of it in no way whatsoever. I appreciate that the NCAA and the NFL care enough about the problem to raise funds for a very worthy cause. But keep the freaking pink ribbons off the field. Burn the freaking pink socks and wristbands. Enough is enough. Cancer in general is a plague and there are innumerable varieties of it. If we had to dedicate a color and a month to each one this country would die of depression."
