Did the NFL follow through with Breast Cancer Awareness?

October 25, 2007

UPDATE:  Since the initial posting over at Ladies… yesterday, and subsequent coverage by other blogs, the NFL has updated its site, now offering several more items for purchase to benefit the cause.  Great work TSW and LDDD.  Go by and let them know it!) 

The Ladies… have pointed out that the NFL recently came off an expansive Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, promising, among other things, autographed items to be sold with the money raised going to support the cause.  Apparently, it sold 2.  Two. 

TheStarterWife’s thoughts:

So what happened? Where are the rest of the items? Isn’t fundraising just as important – if not more so – than making sure all the refs are wearing pink wristbands? I took that screenshot on Monday and yesterday the pink ribbon was taken down. So was it really all a bunch of hype for very little?

TSW has put together a list of what the league did (or didn’t do) as well as each of the individual teams.  Did your team do enough?  Check out the rundown.
