The NFL has been using pink penalty flags this October in demonstration of their support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but apparently they're causing confusion. It seems football players may have been overeager in their adoption of the iconic paraphernalia: Between all the pink gloves, pink wrist bands, pink cleats, and pink towels on the field, no one can even see the pink flags. An NFL spokesman assured USA Today that while the league’s commitment to Pinktober hasn’t wavered, they will return to the traditional yellow flags this weekend. But, as Cut columnist Ann Friedman noted last week, breast cancer awareness seems unlikely to suffer much as a result.
