    Goodbye Nike, hello Under Armour!

    Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    I wouldn't give Nike one penny for their boiler room slave labor shoes or any other item with that stupid logo on it.

    Under Armour is pretty good stuff.

    Pat Tillman gave up an NFL career to go fight in Afghanistan after 9/11. He was killed in action. That's a hero. A crappy QB refusing to stand during the national anthem? Yeah, not so much...
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    Isaiah 54

    Refusing to stand during the national anthem? Blah, whatever. Land of the free and all that. Not much point having freedom if you have to do it exactly the right way. Making a big song and dance about not standing though? Equally a big load of blah, whatever. Doesn't make you a hero.

    Exactly.

    The left think they are heros simple for shouting at the sky.

    That's fine. I have the freedom not to associate myself with the likes of him.

    As do we all. It's not like I needed a reason to not buy Nike's overpriced stuff but hey, chalk another one up. Maybe they are hoping the social justice warriors will buy enough Nike gear to offset the loss in sales from people who don't want every little thing they do to count as some kind of political point scoring exercise.

    Kaepernick manipulates the media into talking about him without any effort whatsoever. The guy sits on a bench and the whole country explodes. Nike knows this, and apparently their strategy was successful given every major news outlet felt the need to talk about an advertisement. I don't understand how people keep falling for this attention seeking ... to the point of setting their own shoes on fire. SMH

    I can’t speak for everyone, but I’m done with Nike and if this nonsense keeps up, the NFL altogether.

    Not me! When I was in High School from 1980-1984, the most expensive Nike’s only cost around $40.

    What nonsense? The manipulation?
