CFL Games in PINK !

After much discussion, fines & vocal comments from fans & players last year, the league finally instated a week where players will be able to wear pink to show their support to find a cure for Cancer.

The info is here: - (CFL PINK? are games the weekend of October 21-22)

But at my great disappointment, the ALOUETTES are NOWHERE to be found on that page ?

Why ? Please don't tell me the Alouettes don't want to participate in this AWARENESS !

Given the cancer history in the Calvillo family, I was sure the Alouettes would be the 1st team to say : yeah WE'RE IN ! (and other players & members of Als organisation probably had a relative or friend who had to battle with that disease !)

Now looks like we won't even participate in this awareness/"fundraising" event....


Look at any NFL game today - all in pink!

oh cool, we're playing winnipeg that day. i'd think the fans will be seeing red. :twisted:

That day I'll be at the carabins-concordia game out west then listen to the als on the radio on my way east to anjou for another ALS fundraiser dinner. Glad the CFL has the cancer covered.

FINALLY ! Alouettes sent their info to the league,


Cedars Cancer Institute

"Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Cedars Cancer Institute is a hospital-based charity whose mission is to provide comprehensive cancer-care and funding to patients and health care professionals at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)."

Way to go Als, still at last minute but better late than never I guess !

If you can send a few bucks, I'm sure they will appreciate. I know I will !
