Referees To Throw Pink Flags In Miami Dolphins – N.Y. Jets Game

For the fourth year in the a row, the National Football League has recognized October as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” by allowing it’s players, coaches, and referees to wear neon pink gear during games. Well for the first time in four years, the NFL will allow their referees to throw pink flags during an NFL game.

Referees will toss the pink flags during the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets game this Sunday from Metlife Stadium. The move to ditch the traditional yellow flags and go with the pink flags was the brainchild of a fifth-grader, Dante Cano,  who suggested the idea in a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The commissioner liked the idea so much, he implemented the fifth-grader’s request, and he has even invited Cano and his family to present the pink flags to referees before the start of Sunday’s game.

Here is the letter the fifth-grader wrote to the NFL. We are happy to see such a huge corporation listen to some of it’s youngest fans.
