    Icon14 Pink Bat Grips

    Has everyone seen Hayden, Symonds and Collingwood's bat grips? how ironic that such powerful strikers of the ball sport such a wimpy grip. However im all for the cause - A breast cancer charity. In fact me and 3 team mates just yesterday purchased a pink grip each! Are they the 'in' thing for 2007??

    Well, personally I think it's good that these top level athletes are supporting the fight against breast cancer. However, I can see them catching on a bit at junior levels without the person actually knowing too much about what they're for, but just wanting to be fasionable.

    I feel I fit into both those categories then. I am more than aware of what they represent, however i do want to be rather fashionable at the crease.

    Can only be a good thing.

    Though if Im being picky, I would have prefered if it was for Prostate cancer which kills as many men as breast cancer does women yet recieves a tiny fraction of the attention, charitable donations or research.

    Cricketers would be in a strong position to promote a pressing male medical issue that is so often neglected.

    So obviously a good thing but at the same time an opportunity missed.

    That's a very valid point Goughy, maybe if you keep suggesting it, something will happen! The only thing i can think of is that it may not be as well known because of area of the body of concerns. It may be seen as a bit taboo?

    I cant see a problem with pink, such a striking colour that it is, surely leads to more people taking note of the cause?

    Haha. You're just trying to make yourself feel more secure about wearing a pink grip, aren't you?
    I voted for the excellent option myself; raising money for breast cancer research (well, any charity really) is never a bad thing. You'll amost definitely cop a bit of sledging for it, but it's all for a good cause.

    Ye, i reckon the Wicket Keeper and 1st Slip will be having more than one quiet qords in my ear this season. I guess I'll shut them up with my batting performances then. I dont mind a bit of sledging though....all part of the game

    Yeah, that was my thought TBH. I'm no fan myself, but it's up to people to put whatever colours they want on their own stuff.

    Maybe black and white were too ordinary for Hayden?

    What would the Black & White grip represent? A racism charity possibly?
