The NFL released a statement Tuesday on Nike, one of its major sponsors, naming unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the face of its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign.

They said on Fox Business that Nike stock was down 3% today and in my opinion I hope it keeps going down. It serves them right for getting involved in something so controversial.

Never could wear a Nike anyhow. Too dang narrow.
I wonder when some of the folks making these decisions are going to look at the evidence? Your stock dropped 3%. NFL viewership has been down since these antics began. The information is there. There are folks who think he is a saint....and maybe more who dont.

My wife had plenty of Nikes..until this. She purged the closet, I bet 20 pairs in total. Gonna cost a fortune to replace in another brand. I do not understand why Nike did it, I guess they see a strategy in it.

Nike's stock has fully recovered and gained since the ad campaign came out.

It will turn out to be a clever marketing strategy in the long run.

The New Balance hiking boots are a very nice all around boot/shoe. I wear them everywhere. They keep your feet dry even if you step in a puddle and are light weight. They also come in narrow sizes which is what I need.

I ain’t buying em neither. For more reasons than one. I operate on both ends of the spectrum. Either crocs or boots here.
