FOOTBALL: NFL Ditching Pink Penalty Flags
After numerous complaints that the flags were hard to differentiate from parts of the players' uniforms -- which are also pink for the next couple of weeks -- the league has announced that it is going back to regular yellow flags. But other pink equipment -- including sideline hats, the padding around the goalposts and even the coin for the coin flip -- will remain pink through week seven's games.
The pink flags were first used in one game last season when the New York Jets visited the Dolphins in Miami.
