It's finally October and with the color of pink being worn around the country, the NFL took a new approach to supporting breast cancer. The NFL had decided to equip the refs with pink NFL whistles, armbands, hats, and now penalty flags. You more than likely saw these flags being used during this weeks NFL games. While it was a cool idea, I found it hard to keep track of the penalty flag as sometimes it was a players towel and not a flag. Due to issues like that, the NFL has decided to abandon the pink flag and go back to the yellow flag starting week 6. Good move, and less confusion. Plenty of pink will still be supported and if you still want a pink penalty flag, I would assume the NFL will be auctioning off the items after October like they always do.
