Ray Rice knocking his wife out is bad. Adrian Peterson whipping his 4 year old son so bad bruising and cuts are still visible a week later is bad. The shortened life span of NFL players and new head injury findings makes the pink breast cancer awareness month a joke. Breast cancer awareness month is upon us. It's a killer. Just about everyone I know has a female family member (immediate or extended) who has either survived or died from breast cancer. Raising awareness of breast cancer is a joke, and a marketing gimmick. Everyone is aware of it. The NFL including a month of pink on the field is a joke (this is after the NFL celebrated Hispanic heritage in September). This is a sport that shortens men's life spans. I'm going to sum up the stupidity of this awareness raising in three sentences.
Over 80% of first time breast cancer diagnoses are in women over 50.
The average age of a former NFL player per a 1994 survey (pre-300 pound lineman expansion) is 55, 52 if you are a lineman.
By the time the average breast cancer diagnosis is made, an NFL lineman has already died.
