Veterans defend Colin Kaepernick - Business Insider
At this point I doubt any truly patriotic veteran would want to wear the nike logo.

Some people are burning their Nike purchases in protest. I think it was a very carefully thought-out marketing strategy.
Burning Nike gear costs Nike nothing, and it gives them free advertising.
Coldnomore thinks they've claimed the moral high ground. So far, he seems to be in a minority.

Good for Nike. They are taking the long and high road while marketing to the diverse and quite a bit more open to different viewpoints of people 35 and under market.

No need to comment on ToTV.

Communicate with your purchasing dollars.

I wish I knew what the protest was about and what would make the kneelers happy. Maybe I could care.

Given that we live here in TV...no big surprise there.

Then again, I've never been one of those that just went along with a crowd...when it comes to my integrity and ethics.

Let's not forget (and I'm certainly not comparing myself to such a wonderful and admirable icon)...that Rosa Parks was also in the minority.

A good time for one of my favorite sayings....

Nike makes Kaepernick the face of '''Just Do It''' campaign

Actually they look like a good investment. For the long haul that is.
