    Not a good sign when your mom and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are calling you "dumb".

    Kappy was a washed-up QB who only became a "thing" when the media took a quiet pre-season sitdown and marketed it as Rosa Parks. Now he's the dope for his US hating Muslim girlfriend and George Soros.

    I stopped buying Nike junk in the 90s

    Nike sales in the U.S. will take a hit.

    Lots of meltdowns on Twitter this afternoon. I'm sure they will start here soon while I order a new pair of Nikes.

    I think Nike knows who their audience is. Old guys who throw fits about the anthem and can't see their shoes from under their guts weren't buying many Nikes to begin with.

    Short of the insults, you’re absolutely right. The younger the consumer, the more likely they are to support Kaep.

    The same Phil Kmight who has been personally bankrolling the Paterno family legal battles (including making publicthe names of the victims)? I'm guessing you support him on that front as well.

    Kaepernick seems to be scoring some victories as of late. First, his collusion grievance gets the green-light and now this. Good for him. The twitter meltdowns are hilarious.

    I don't own amy Nike products. I don't endorse them. I just think that participants in this thread mistake their rebuke of Kaepernick for brand awareness. A fitness apparel company that prints money is sure to have measured this decision with tools more sophisticated than knee jerks.

    How much longer before they start running just do it ads featuring Alexandria Ocasio Cortez?

    Just ridiculous!

    I won't buy or not buy Nike because of this. I just think it’s silly to choose him for your campaign with so many great athletes to choose from. He was a backup QB when this whole thing started. Since when do backups get commercials??

    Support for someone expressing their freedom of speech and a corporation making a financial decision isn't moderate? Are you a fascist communist?

    F Nike. As a lifestyle brand, they are in serious trouble. Adidas has a lot of entertainers in their pocket.

    Guys like you try to "insult" my nephew calling him Kapernick quite often.

    People are free to disagree with him, but when those that disagree make it about the military or anti-American, I am going to call it BS.

    Its also telling that NFL HQ pod people let the radicals run the asylum under "free speech" but the same phonies sit on Jerry Jones. The people with their consciences reversed always predictably align up the wrong way on issues.

    Now we see why he is always so unhinged. He’s using some obscure happening to a family member and painting the world with that brush. He’s very unintelligent. This is another example.

    This will be a disaster for Nike. Instead of sales increasing a full 9 percent year over year, they will only increase 8.99999999 percent year over year.....All because 7 dudes on this board and their kind on similar boards across the country will stop buying them. Lol

    I am glad he got the ad.

    Not generally a Nike buyer but I am sure I can make a purchase or 2.

    I doubt I am the demo they are looking for though.

    Good, go support him. Anti cop and anti America are so you. It’s not a surprise, I assure you.

    Seems like Nike (the NFL uniform and apparel supplier) is sending a big FU to them by putting Kaep on the cover. Using the funds from the NFL to pay Kaep #priceless

    Most Nike revenues (53%) come from international markets. You probably cant go too wrong promoting anti-Americans in global markets

    Yep that's why my prediction is for US sales to take a hit. Kapernick ads will be a huge hit in Euro Socialist markets, and Rusher probably.
