Kapernick is protesting a fake injustice and disrespecting the vast majority of Americans, especially those that served in the military. Nike is magnifying his idiocy by using him in its commercials. They are cynically targeting the "hate America" demographic that they believe buys their shoes. I want no part of that and refuse to buy their products, even if they are good quality/price. I stopped watching the NFL, even the Cowboys, who I like, because I don't want to support the League and their pathetic, disgusting, left wing leadership. I'll watch again when every player stands for the Anthem, every time, at every game. No loss to them, but I at least have control over my choices.
Glad you shared your opinion. Thanks. I have family and friends who are veterans and currently serve who aren’t disrespected and know many more who arent disrespected. So when you speak you don’t speak for all military personnel. Like you said that is your “opinion”and I respect that. We can disagree all day but respect should be given to all our opinions and one shouldn’t label some one as “anti” American because they don’t agree with our “perspective”. I respect your decision to not watch but one should not try and belittle or bring about negativity when they share a different opinion than theirs.
No problem. In this case Kap, Nike, and the NFL are wrong, and people on my side are right. :tiphat:

They can hold whatever opinion they wish, no matter how stupid. But they can’t change the facts. The facts are there is no widespread bias against biracial men of color by the cops and they are not getting away with killing them for no reason.

The NFL leadership and sports press IS filled with left wing, America hating, commies, anti gun authoritarians, etc. They prove it daily. ;-)

LDB415,

You posted: "Some people have stronger feelings and beliefs than others."

Certainly, you are right!

We passionate Conservatives recognize those who aren't, as they ultimately reveal their leftist bias while speciously pretending to argue as if they were Conservatives.

We don't give in to them though they try and try to pretend they're not leftists with arguments that sound neutral, but are really Trojan horses of discouragement so we won't oppose for our own interests, but with theirs...won't happen.

Some good games are on right now. I am cleaning my weapons and enjoying a few good games. Have a good Sunday. And since you don’t watch football any more just letting you know the cowboys still suck so you aren’t missing anything this year.

Nike shares at an all time high.. guess it didn’t go as planned for most of the “boycotters” who stated their stock will fall and they will loose money.

Stealth lefties do their best to discourage...but fail to convince.

lefties will never prevail here, but do ruin - see Venezuela or Cuba or Russia and so it goes...and want it for you...

I'm sorry to hear it. They don't deserve it. Time may eventually work against them. One can only hope.
It's fine if you disagree. I can't force you to be correct.

A lot of stocks are at all time highs.

Nike can actually thank Trump.

I suspected as much and now you’ve saved me the time of having to watch the ‘tards disrespecting the flag. Thanks. :biggrinjester:

Probably those watching the NFL while wearing their Nike's are also wearing and buying more Levi's too.

Sadly, you missed the point and the mark. Most of us "boycotters" never said they wanted to "hurt" the nfl or it's sponsor, only that WE WOULDN'T SUPPORT them any longer and didn't care if they went under. There is a HUGE difference between not caring or supporting something VS. actually wanting to cause it harm.
And since you don’t watch football any more just letting you know the cowboys still suck so you aren’t missing anything this year.
Way to keep it classy, San Diego. :roll:

True and a great story, but beating the kneeler ad isn't that tough to do... even the new pik-a-poo ad puts it to shame.

This sums it up.
Just a friendly heads up. I don't think your attachment meets the "G" rating of the forum rules.
