I own very little swoosh marked products anymore. That won't be changing anytime soon.

I just got rid of my old Nike shoes and gym shorts. I will never wear anything with their logo (now V for vile) on it again!

Freedom of speech is alive. You may not agree with his message, but you have to respect his right to express it.

I agree with the boycott and won’t be buying any Nike merchandise. He has a right to express his opinion and I will do it with my wallet

Good for Nike!


It's not easy in this day and age...to take a moral stand.

Just checked my closet. I hope Lands End doesn't hire Kaepernick. I'll have to walk around naked.

He can express it all he wants to on his front porch or by calling a press conference, but do not do it where I “PAY” to watch a specific event, such as football or any other entertainment venue. Now I cannot watch the National Anthem on TV before football games because it offends a very small quantity of NFL players. Freedom of speech is not a workplace right. Freedom to boycott business, entertainers, athletes or anyone that do not comprehend that, is everyone’s right. I guess Nike’s 3% stock drop (4.2 billion) today confirms that. Sales decline and more stock price issues to follow. My FREEDOM OF SPEECH STATEMENT: JUST DO IT DONE WITH NIKE.

Instead of throwing away your Nike stuff, how about donating it... to some veterans?

Nike’s moral stand just cost their investors 4.2 Billion, with a “B” today. They forced their moral values on unsuspecting stockholders. But that’s Nike’s platform: “Just Do It”

I don’t watch NFL anymore and I will no longer buy or wear a Nike product. I guess protests work.
