Tie an Ugly Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree...

Today, the Buffalo Bills tweeted out this photo of the special footballs to be used at the weekend's "Salute to Service" promotional events all around the NFL.

We also got a look at the special captains' patches that will be worn by many clubs, including the Bills.

Fortunately, we will be spared those, as the Packers do not wear captains' patches during the regular season.

We can, however, expect to see a special helmet decal featuring the GI Joe drag ribbon this weekend against the Cardinals and November 18th at Detroit (the week in between is the Packers' bye).

I just hope that this "support the troops" show is no more than half as scam-tastic as the NFL's pink-out. The troops deserve real support, not flashy marketing gimmicks.
