The NFL should be ashamed of themselves after this one.
Every year the NFL allows players to wear pink in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Really cool thing to do.
According to reports, Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams requested permission to wear pink for the remainder of the season in order to honor his mother, who died from the disease last May, but was denied by the league.
This is just disgusting.
This isn't gang related or a wild color choice at all. I think if a player wants to wear pink to spread awareness on something of this magnitude the NFL should allow this to happen.
Cmon NFL, we have to do better.
