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.

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.
