    I believe the money from fines go to the NFL charity of some sort. And then OchoCinco matches that donation and donates to his own charity. So thats twenty thousand smackers donated for wearing the wrong shoes. That is more than I took home from my first full time job.

    Every player who wore pink gloves and pink shoes should get a $40k fine for defamating the masculinity of the league

    STRONGLY disagree. Promoting breast cancer awareness and early detection is something that should be applauded, not mocked because it's not "masculine".

    Hey they do that for a good cause, now I do not like how they do it for the whole month for a weekend i would be fine with the pink. In case you didn't know its just for breast cancer awareness, and the MLB does have their blue Prostate awareness month get up, but we don't play during that month. I, at least believe its fairer for the league to allow something like Breast cancer awareness support, than some attention whore who wants to make a fashion statement or a few bucks for himself in endorsements.

    MLB does pink bats for Mother's Day to promote breast cancer awareness as well.

    Only if that fine went to the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or similar. I personally applaud the league and players, all associated with the wave of pink.

    Wow. Just read the replies to my post. hahah... it's a joke. I'm pretty new to this forum, so I guess this is a heads up that I'm pretty sarcastic. I guess it didn't come through in the above post.

    Jokes about breast cancer arent that funny. Maybe you want to try alzheimers next time, only slightly less offensive.
