I think its poor taste for Nike IMHO - but for some marketer at Nike it may be a good PR stunt - remember when he started fluffing feathers he was the most sold jersey at the time. This won't change my willingness to buy Nike - however I will still chose Adidas as brand of choice anyways.Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is appearing in Nike's "Just Do It" 30th anniversary campaign.
The money comes voluntarily from average americans. They are not being forced to pay into the nfl. I have only spent probably 200 dollars in my life on nfl stuff. But if I didn't have 200 dollars, I probably wouldn't have given them anything. They get most of their money from advertising anyways.I agree, anything is better than watching a group of under-educated overweight, out of shape men moving back and fourth on a field a few feet at a time that drags on for hours and hours only to witness them disrespecting the flag, slapping each others assess .... all while making millions of dollars from the pocket of the average American whom is struggling to make it in the world that are doing actual work.
There is always TV. I just use an antenna.Obviously, hard working American's that have been brainwashed their whole lives that spending their precious time and hard earned dollars on a team(s) and players that are meaningless to them is a sound way to drain their bank accounts. Remember all of this nations middle class money woes, retirement fiascos, and the issue of no savings - but its wise to dump what you don't have on a day at the stadium and apparel.
I'll bet there's and increase in their applications.https://kdvr.com/2018/09/07/missouri-college-plans-to-strip-athletes-of-nike-branding-over-kaepernick-controversy/
POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. — The College of the Ozarks, a private Christian school in Missouri that competes in sports at the NAIA level, said it will remove all uniforms purchased from Nike that contain the brand’s logo.
It is a truism in sales that people buy from people they like. Sales reps are professional friends. Its their job to be the friendly face of the company they represent. Colin, I said FRIENDLY. To be effective a sales rep must be respectful of all comers, even competitors, and obviously their customers and their country. Disrespectful people with offensive attitudes won't sell much.So, then don't buy the advertised products....just think, each Budweiser should point to an over-paid athelete someplace....
