    NFL has been a washout with me for quite a while. Playoffs and the stuper bowl arevall i watch and maybe not then. Wife still has those damn season tickets for a perpetual loser team that she can't sell. Waste of money.
    You went to a NY Giants game to see your Dallas Cowboys loose??

    Watching Foot Ball is a lazy mans sport, I get more out of it at the 10: O'clock news just all the high-lights on all the teams, No commercials. I would like to see One Game Played with NO Commercial from start to finish. 1.5Hr Play time.

    So called athletes are mental midgets for the most part and are the worst kind of model for children to look up to. I have had some as neighbors and believe me you do not want that experience.
    Most but not all People of color live beyond there means. {It's called Working the System} They prefer to buy SWAG/stolen product's, they sell there food stamp card for cash & shop at their local food pantry(FREE FOOD) And Foot Ball Players most can't read above an (8)grade level, NO skills on handling money(Ama going to buy me a house for my momma) and buy me a Land Rover $72K.& rings and things.

    99Ex, Are you a spokesman for Nike? Remember when Tiger Woods driving DUI Nike dropped him like a hot rock!! I think you need to re-evaluate your thinking on guess work about Nike!

    Never have owned anything Nike. However, there is an interesting story about how the young girl made the Nike logo. I believe in early ads they told the story. Sad thing is she never was paid even a tiny fraction of what the logo value turned out to be.

    It's easy to give up watching a sport you have little or no interest in.
    It would be like me giving up hockey because I didn't like one of their advertisers.
    I read recently that the average NFL game has about eleven minutes of actual playing time , and 100 commercials. I use the DVR feature on my TV and skip right through the commercials. I could not name one advertiser if my life depended on it.

    I have a friend who had two season tickets to the NY Giants' games many years ago when they never had a winning season.
    I went to many games with him just to be able to watch the visiting teams, esp. the Dallas Cowboys.

    I beg to differ.
    Truth be told, Nike makes a great shoe (sneaker) called the "Air Monarch."
    I own two pair and it's like walking on a cloud.
    At $60 a pair, they are a blessing for those of us with sore feet.
    Give the devil his due.

    Their thinking is that just because we are poor doesn't mean we shouldn't have nice things:-))

    BHR - My point is that I don't think they are taking sides in a racial issue, but taking a business risk to promote sales. It will probably cost them as many sales s they gain. A wash.

    Speaking of mental midgets; they are the ones being led by the nose by other mental midgets, which then becomes a circle going nowhere and needed knowledge is never forthcoming !

    It is well known that Nike is not a political organization 99, but they have entered a political and race motivated situation and are thus subject to any and all consequences deserved !!

    I am indifferent to the outcome of this ad campaign. Nike makes a good product, and they have to take calculated risks in their advertising.
    They are running a business and not a political organization.

    I know that much of what I am about to say will not be taken well by a segment of this society, but I will adopt the words of Nike and “just do it” ! Many of the problems that blacks claim to be their reason for certain actions and beliefs are of their own making. Many have no intention of assimilating into the American culture, its laws, values or even a need for education. It is easier to blame “whitie” for their plight, lack of jobs and thru crime, their actions against police which they then claim to be police brutality ! Obama played a big role in this current issue when he took the side of blacks during the Ferguson, Mo. riots matter, claiming the entire fault was that of police and their brutality. The blacks jumped on that bit of BS and have ran with it ever since. There is much more racism on the black side than on the white side, and if there are those who disagree, maybe they can explain how a black man was elected to two terms as president of a country that is almost 80% white !! I well realise this topic is about Nike, but it is also regarding a black cause which my concerns also involve. If we are going to consider Nike, Kaepernick and what is all involved in this movement, then all must be stated, as much of Kaepernick’s philosophy is suspect to say the least ! There are many non-blacks in this country who also are subject to many of the same problems claimed by the black community, but we do not see riots from them, or find causes in their defense. I guess that rightiousness is reserved for only those who display the most disrespect to society ! I do not like to turn this situation into a race topic, but that is exactly what Nike has done with their involvement and the right to answer has to be respected !
    I recently read an article about the absence of big chain supermarkets in black communities, calling them food deserts.
    No explanations were offered, except to note that the big chain supermarkets operated on very small profit margin, which ruled out price reductions to increase sales.
    I did a google search for the answer, and found comments suggesting that the prevalence of shoplifting was a big concern. One comment was that the black community has very little money, so they don't spend - they steal.
    Another comment was that in times of civil unrest, the black communities tend to riot and burn down their supermarkets and other stores after looting them. Their insurance rates must be astronomical.
    Just my two cents.
