11-year-old Boy Convinces NFL to Use Pink Penalty Flags
A NFL game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets this weekend could look a bit different thanks to a 11 year old boy named Dante Cano.
You’ve seen pink all over the NFL’s fields through October as part of the league’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign, Well Dante sent a hand-written letter to the commissionaire saying that the refs should use pink penalty flags at this weekends game for breast cancer awareness month!
The NFL agreed and invited Cano and his family to MetLife Stadium where they will be on the field and present the penalty flags to the officials before the game.
“Dante had a great idea and I am looking forward to meeting with him on Sunday to put it into action,” Goodell said. “Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the best. I applaud Dante for sending in his recommendation.”
