  • For All Free Speech Advocates...

    I don't care much for Colin Kaepernick, but this development will really **** off Trump. He would have been much better off just keeping his mouth shut.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    Lots of people buying shoes instead of investing in their future.

      Dumb, Nike is losing millions from their stupid add from an NFL punk.
      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        Nope-their profits are rising because of it.

          Good.
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            I heard they have already lost two million.

              I think it is too soon to tell what the financial impact will be but one poll has shown that nike's favorability rating has dropped in all subgroups of the poll. Including black males. If true that does not bode well for nike.

                Their stock dropped $3 a share initially, and it's still down 0.90.

                Apparently the goober getting his bench-riding butt kicked out of the NFL wasn't lesson enough.

                  revealed that Nike's online sales surged 31% from Sunday through Tuesday.

                        A punk is a punk.

                        A punk with a shoe deal is still a punk.

                          Agree completely.

                            Yes, he is. And if Trump would have left the issue alone, it would have died a natural death. Of course, Trump can't do that-he has to run his big mouth.

                              I agree here. Kaepernick and his ilk provided the fuel, Trump provided the spark, and the NFL fanned the flames.
