but is his career in sports finished?

reply

His career ended a couple years ago after he got demoted to 2nd string because of a horrible QB rating. Once defenses figured him out his career crashed hard and fast.

reply

You only care about NFL B.S. because Trump tells you to, lemming.

reply

And what are you? A LIEberal lemming who believes whatever the slanderous DemonKKKrats & lamestream non-media tell you. You probably voted for HeyLIARy and NObama, huh?

reply

No, troll. Completely wrong in every possible way.

reply

I hope that was sarcasm.

reply

Nike loves you.

reply

So you think those “puns” are clever?

reply

No, that's the point. He was responding in kind.

reply

Ouch ! Your clever barbs are so hurtful ! You are showing how crazy intelligent you are with all this thoughtful and remarkable word play. Your junior high teachers must be proud.

reply

Yup, Trump phones me every morning and tells me what to post on MC. You're a fucking Genius, Froggy!

reply

Kaepernick jersey is among Nike's best sellers. He's more popular than most people think. The stock had a little consolidation along with the general markets on Tuesday. It may bounce off its 10 week moving average. Millieniums are buying the Nike stock. Nike has a ballsy image now. Courageous, strong, trendsetting, revolutionary, daring and on the right side of history.

reply

And one more Chinese slave just committed suicide. What is it with far leftists and worshiping consumerism and multinational corporations?

reply

"On Friday, President Obama chose Nike headquarters in Oregon to deliver a defense of his proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership.

It was an odd choice of venue.

Nike isn’t the solution to the problem of stagnant wages in America. Nike is the problem."

You got suckered by marketing. When they lie, they lie to you most.

reply

I'm definitely a supporter of Kaepernick and believe when history looks back they'll regret their injust treatment of this fine hero. Every single one of those players that have stood up deserve a hero's recognition. All losing sponsors, fame, and criticism. While some even losing their jobs and careers. Kaepernick deserves the leadership because he took the first step which was the hardest and through and through has stood firm while being heavily criticised. For people who value a stupid sport and corrupt business over values, rights, racism, and freedom have no dignity and are unworthy of being true Americans.

reply

This is a joke post right?

reply

This is an empty post, right?

reply

Libtards are not funny!

reply

Amen !

reply

That's what happens in nazi america where majority of the people are racist. Someone needs to purge half the population here

reply

The left said New Balance is racist for being made in America.

reply

Yea Nazi Hick America.
Strangely his parents are white.

reply

Nazi America... Are we really at this point of delusion?

reply

Yep. There are a lot of idiot liberals out there.

reply

"Someone needs to purge half the population here"

Did you go to university to get so stupid? That's why you people are known as "Liberal Fascists".

reply

"Go to university"? Odd word choice for someone so invested in American politics....almost foreign.


I think you finally slipped up.

reply

Oh no ! Nike stock has fallen ! The end is nigh !
People burning their sneakers ! Very telling and significant !
(Sarcasm alert)

reply

I also love their concept of "plunges."

Nike stock, even after the minor "plunge," was still higher yesterday than it was a mere month ago.

Just scroll down this list and see how irrelevant this "plunge" was.... Take your little dose of REALITY, you mindless lemming:

You really have no clue about the B.S. you're posting, you just post what Trump tells you to care about. Absolutely no standards or ideas of your own.

Mindless. Just mindless.

People who burn their Nike crap are only PRETENDING to care about veterans and should perhaps donate it instead of destroying:

Yes, PRETENDING to care about veterans. That's why they support a DRAFT-DODGING COWARD who insults veterans and who managed to get elected President even though he lost the vote by almost 3 million people.

reply

Trump doesn't insult "veterans". He insults John McCain, who colluded with Vietnam by the way. When normal people hear that Trump likes "people who didn't get captured", they don't think he's insulting veterans. They are happy someone is finally acknowledging them for their service, instead of victimizing wealthy politicians who failed to do what they did.

Nobody cares about veterans or black lives. You're the one pretending. You and Colin care about a giant corporation's bottom line. Hooray for slave labor! No that doesn't mean I care about slave labor. It means you do, about preserving it, so you can buy cheap shoes with some millionaire's name on them. Are you female in addition to being liberal? How can you fall for such absurd marketing?

reply

Update:

Nike sales increased by 31% this week. The stock temporarily went down, but has recovered 41% of its decline. It's not only above the 50 day moving average, but has gone up while the general markets have went down which shows strength for the Nike stock.

This is why I hate liberals. They cheerlead for child slavery labor and the TPP all because of a dumb marketing campaign. And yet you will continue to accuse America of being racist while there aren't any corporate ad campaigns directed at racists. It's an open secret in the ad industry that women are a much more lucrative target than men, and liberals much more than conservatives.

reply

"This is why I hate liberals."

Don't justify your bigotry! Unless you're walking around naked and you don't eat, I can assure you that clothes and other products you buy have been produced overseas under deplorable working conditions. The problem isn't limited to Nike.

My point was that Trumpanzees care more about wearing Nikes than their own rhetoric.

It's not an "open secret". Women ARE the main target because they do most of the shopping. There are exceptions like cars and beer. Advertisers prefer young targets because they haven't developed brand loyalty yet. I don't know what advertising has to do with working conditions in poor countries.

Instead of leaving wages up to the "good will" of individual corporations, it would make more sense to have Western governments decide on a much higher livable wage and better working conditions when a corporation hires outside of its own country similar to what's already been enacted within its own borders.

'Trumpanzees'

Speaking of bigotry...

reply

You mean the same Trump who embraces neo-Nazis and white supremacists and puts children in cages? Talk about comparing apples and oranges.

reply

"You mean the same Trump who embraces neo-Nazis and white supremacists and puts children in cages? Talk about comparing apples and oranges."

It's like reading any of his braindead Twitter repliers.

reply

No one cares what a well-known troll "thinks" (and yes I'm using that word very lightly)

reply

Anyone who defends Trump is loony tunes.
