Surprise! Colin Kaepernick is the new face of Nike


#563

Let’s just hope, for Niki’s sake, that Kaepernck is better at selling shoes than he was at playing football. :wink:


#564

So, he will get Nike to the superbowl? I’m pretty sure they will be OK with that.


#565

I am sure that everyone keeps tabs on the stock market.

Good for you and I mean that. It’s a crazy world right now and if you can make some money off of it…kudos.


#567

New balance or Nike…those kicks should have been tossed years ago…


#568

Yeah … so about that. As of this morning Nike stock is trading right back at the price it was the day before they released the add. Took all of 6 days to get back the 4 billion in market cap hit due to knee jerk reaction and speculation. They will be just fine.


#569

Making money off faux patriots. when they were selling I was buying.

I almost feel bad about stealing money from them,almost…

If you wanna make money seems like all you have to do is follow around whatever those on the far right are claiming to boycott, then buy stock of that company.


#573

The alternate memes have brought them back.


#574

Hell of a commercial.


#575

I want a company that turns a “Cops are pigs” guy into a hero to fail, yes.

What’s too bad is that people either have forgotten or don’t care about that “cops are pigs” incident and just think of him as the guy who first knelt.

I don’t have a problem with the kneeling, but if you want to create better relations between police and the public, you don’t go around insulting them or encouraging your “community” to insult them.


#576

There can be more than just 1 type of hero


#577

Wait … I thought both Conner and the Kurgan both said there can be only one.


#578

The only thing it will take to get Nike to the Superbowl is money. The same goes for Kaepernick. He can buy a ticket just like anyone else. :slight_smile:


#579

yes, with that fat Nike endorsement, he can buy pretty much anything he wants.


#581

That’s the only thing that bothers me about this whole Kaepernick thing. Altruism is his banner, but clearly, the man is a cop hater and yet that aspect of his character and agenda has been ignored by his supporters.


#582

Nope. He only hates bad cops. What’s wrong with that?


#583

His cop-pig socks made no distinction between good and bad cops. He clearly hates cops in general.
