    Nutt doesn't want to offend cancer survivors

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top><!-- begin leftcol --><!-- template inline -->FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said that players caught loafing will no longer wear pink jerseys during practices in an effort to avoid offending breast cancer survivors.



    Nutt received negative reaction from people when they saw the players in the pink jerseys. Breast cancer survivors and their supporters often wear pink ribbons, and the nationwide Race for the Cure, which raises funds for breast cancer research, uses the color pink as well.

    "That's the last think I want to do, is to offend a cancer victim, someone who I know how strong and brave they are," Nutt said. "That was the last thing on our mind, to discredit somebody who has shown a lot of toughness. I've had members of my family who had cancer."

    Nutt said the coaches are considering another color, possibly burnt orange, the color of Arkansas rival Texas.




    This is political correctness out of control. Since when do breast cancer survivors own the color pink?

    Does that mean teams can't wear yellow jerseys b/c that color stands for the troops?

    When will this madness stop.

    In no way does those players wearing a pink jersey have anything to do with breast cancer.

    Welcome to the United States of the Offended.



    Anybody who is offended by anything I say can feel free not to listen to what I have to say. Other than that, shut the fuck up.

    Then Lance Armstrong might get pissed off. When the equipment guy wanted to punish us they would give us one of the old 1970's kicker facemasks for practice. FYI never fuck with the equipment guy.

    This year, I'm going to have my players shave their legs and piss sitting down so that they don't offend the field hockey team.

    I think the dude's name might offend Lance Armstrong.

    Now if it were Houston Nutts... it probably wouldn't.

    No matter what you do these days, somebody will get pissed off. I sympathize with breast cancer victims, and know some women who've survived it, but why should this bother the Race for the Cure?

    But I can see Razorbacks not wanting to be designated for burnt orange jerseys. That should motivate players as well as the pink.

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas coach Houston Nutt has decided that his players who are caught loafing will no longer wear pink jerseys during practices in an effort to avoid offending breast cancer survivors.

    Nutt said Monday that he had received negative reaction from people when they saw the players in the pink jerseys. Breast cancer survivors and their supporters often wear pink ribbons and the nationwide Race for the Cure, which raises funds for breast cancer research, uses the color pink as well.

    "That's the last think I want to do, is to offend a cancer victim, someone who I know how strong and brave they are," Nutt said. "That was the last thing on our mind, to discredit somebody who has shown a lot of toughness. I've had members of my family who had cancer."
    Nutt said the coaches are considering another color, possibly burnt orange, the color of Arkansas rival Texas.

    So what, now Race for the Cure owns the rights to the color pink in all walks of life? I thought we were moving past this PC crap...
