Kaepernick watches ad's TV debut at Nike HQ

Kaepernick watches ad's TV debut at Nike HQ

Responses to the ads sparked debate about whether Nike had bitten off more than it could chew when the company chose to make its relationship with Kaepernick public or had simply made a good business decision. The timing of the ad campaign, days before the first game of the National Football League season on Thursday, is likely to stoke the controversy over pre-game protests.

Falwell said they are exploring the situation and that if Nike believes law enforcement is unfair and biased, they will look around - but will honor any contract that is in tact.

While the motto of the ad is "Don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough" - many have honed into the one that tells Kaepernick's story: "Believe in something, even if it means losing everything". The NFL star sparked controversy when he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

But 14-time major champion Woods praised Nike for making Kaepernick as the face of its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign.

Kaepernick may not have had sacrificed anything, and we might not agree with this campaign, but we shouldn't resort to stupid antics associated with the left.

Nike could have chosen one of many other "iconic sports players who have done so much for their communities and military community" and who thus would have been better examples than Kaepernick, Merritt told American Military News.

At a rally in Montana last week, Trump said he didn't think Nike's endorsement deal with Kaepernick was appropriate.

Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the league and team owners accusing them of conspiring to keep him off any team's roster had a major victor: an arbitrator has allowed the challenge to go to trial. "Colin Kaepernick, he's not one of them". So far, it's been met with protests and discussions of issues dating back to the George W. Bush era. What's your take on this?

MORE: Good for business? It's a reminder that successful brands tend to appeal to specific people or groups, and not necessarily the entire population.

And people were outraged by Nike's decision, with some even burning their branded belongings. "They pay a lot of rent". Nike wants to be on the right side of history here.
