Here’s what happened to Nike sales after their Kaepernick ad dropped

The fallout from Nike unveiling a "Just Do It" ad campaign featuring blackballed quarterback Colin Kaepernick is thus: a small but vocal segment of the population defaced or burned their already-purchased Nike merchandise.

But Woods, though he has been a Nike-sponsored athlete since turning professional in 1996, does not appear in the advert.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good". "It's a handsome spot and pretty powerful people (are) in the spot".

Colin Kaepernick's voice filled homes across America at the first break in the third quarter of the Falcons-Eagles NFL regular season-opener Thursday night.

MarketWatch reported on Friday that Nike's online sales jumped 31 percent in the wake of the ad's release and public reaction to the campaign.

Nike has always positioned itself as an edgy brand, willing to innovate - and that is perhaps why they have been the first to put a foot forward in this issue and support Kaepernick's crusade.

Which means Nike would have had to have doled out that much money to receive the same kind bang it received from the Kaepernick announcement.

We all hear on the video what the umpire said to Nick overpassing (overstepping) his functions. I wasn't really listening to him, but I knew it wasn't a good look. "I know this is not you".

Nike's emotional ad pays homage to those who "dream insane".

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins who has been a supporter of the National Football League protests said the Nike commercial is a game changer for Kaepernick.

The National Association of Police Organizations also called for a boycott of Nike over its support for the former Super Bowl participant, who has emphasized his opposition to police brutality, and the National Fraternal Order of Police condemned the campaign.

The private Christian college in Missouri announced Thursday that its athletic teams will no longer buy Nike uniforms and any it has now will be removed, the Kansas City Star reports.

"It's not about protesting the national anthem, and we're bringing light to that".

"And so, I'm proud of the things that people are doing". There's some people that say they want to talk about it and say they want to discuss it and debate it, but they don't.
