Besides.....is Kanye West an athlete?

I notice Nike sells Yeezys.

A Kap shoe would do numbers. I wouldnt buy it....but I dont buy anyones shoes anyway.

It also should be mentioned that NIKE is an international company selling shoes worldwide. The small minority of people in the US who may take offense to the use of Kaepernick is insignificant to their total customer base.

Yea most of Nikes sales arent in North America. And not that many americans care anyway. A lot more are gonna bullshit about being upset on twitter than people who would buy sneakers...choosing not to. Its no different from the clowns claiming they would drop netflix for hulu over Obama...when Hulu is owned by NBC and Disney...who they also apparently hate.

Protesting products is generally pretty lame. Its mostly people who wouldnt buy it anyway getting mad.

You know that was a joke, right? I donít actually think Nike would make a Colin Kaepernick signature fishing shoe.

Right wingers love exploiting this particular veterans death, and they don’t even know the circumstances surrounding his death. So rich.

Pat Tillman was also a liberal and an atheist. Find another mascot, buddy

when will you self proclaimed patriots actually allow people to peacefully protest for their rights without marginalizing the message? you wont, because you want to marginalize minorities.

I assumed you were referencing the fact that he wasnt a current athlete....as in...going fishing.

The ad itself is click bait bullshit.

Kap isn't signed because he's not good enough.

There isn't some grand conspiracy amongst all of the owners to keep him out of the league.

If any of them thought the amount of improvement he would bring the roster would outweigh the cost of the circus bullshit surrounding him, he'd be playing.

But his talent doesn't outweigh that, because he's not that good. He's not worth it.

This is a dead issue. Suck my dick, ******s.

Hes perhaps not good enough....to offset the circus that comes with him. It clearly isnt an issue of not good enough at football period. Anyone to take a team to the superbowl is good enough to be in the nfl.
