I don’t think James Cybulski appreciated the comments by Booth.

Fly into a building? No. Protesting people getting shot in the back or harassed because of the color of their skin? Yeah.

David Booth is right.  If it is about police brutality then Nike should say something specific about Police brutality.  Instead they came up with some sort of cliché saying and Booth called them out on it.  Sacrifice everything?  Really?  Ok.

Kaepernick is no martyr and Nike made a calculated risk by stirring up the pot that had finally begun to settle.

Reason 1,814,217 why I’ve never joined any social media platforms. My pontificating is limited strictly to hockey.

Do yourselves a favor and delete your social media accounts…. wink

“Just Do It”? Really? Ok

Booth has an opinion, but he should be honest with himself and state his real reasons for it. Because…it’s not about ambiguity of language.

Geeeezzz it’s not that deep. Pretty sure the line is just referring to the fact that Kaepernick is out of a job because he stood up (or kneeled rather) for what he believed in.

Check out his Twitter - he expands on everything.

All in all, I don’t care.  I honestly don’t care.  Too many people care about too many things they can’t control, and they get WAY too worked up over it.  My freaking BIL thinks he is a soldier in an internet war, posting memes and trolling people.  It’s honestly changed him as a person and he can not have fun anymore. 

I was in the breakroom at work, someone had the news on and they were talking about how some show announced something (The Bachelor??) and it resulted in thousands/millions of people being angry on twitter.  Oh?  Really?  People were unhappy with something? 

No matter what, somewhere between 40-70% percent of people will disapprove of something.

Rant over, thanks all.

Just one more reason to like David Booth.

As for Nike, they wanted to “stir the pot” with their nonsensical ad, and now they’re finding out that a whole lot of people who liked their shoes don’t like their politics – and that’s going to cost them customers.

The guy is out of a job because he was a lousy quarterback. He was benched and headed out the door before he ever “took a knee.”

There’s a double standard here in that Booth is admired for “simply having an opinion” but Kapernick and Nike are targeted for it.

Honestly, what’s wrong with thinking that I disagree with CK, but good for him and his supporters for believing in what they believe in? It’d be easy to do that with Booth if he were being honest about it instead of stating it’s about language ambiguity.

Maybe Nike should have went with a slogan like “Honestly, don’t care. Too many people care.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, yeah it’s the fault of the ad campaign.

Just because you’re ignorant doesn’t mean the ad is nonsensical.

You’re both right, given the MAGAs, “fake news”, and requested Yeti returns featured on his feed. He’s obviously entitled to his opinion regardless of its unoriginality but one primary flaw of social media is the elevating of oft-regurgitated idealism like this to a status that belies its significance. That said, Mr.Cybulski is the poo-poo head here, moreso than either Kaepernick or Booth.

Once again proving you can’t argue a point without resorting to name-calling. At least you’re consistent.

People keep forgetting this.  If anything, I always thought him taking a knee was a “Hail Mary” to try to save his career (pun absolutely intended). 

The ironic thing to me is, I never liked Kapernick as a QB, and I have never liked Nike’s products (especially shoes).  They both are “brands” - not good products.  To me it’s a perfect marriage.

I try to live an advertisement free life as much as possible. The best running shoes I’ve used have been nike. That’s why I buy them. I think it’s the only thing I intentionally buy from the company. Definitely never because of paid athlete representation.
Except for KK, I’ve been off social media for going on seven months now, and my quality of life is better for it. I highly recommend it.

And here’s one more person who, as TK suggests, can’t discuss an issue. He can only resort to name-calling. It’s just intellectual laziness.

Ilovehomers is right, religion is the height of logical fallacy, so Booth really looks like a total moron for framing it the way he did. The cognitive dissonance is staggering.

As for separating the country, all we are separating is the racists from the non racists, which really is a service when you think about it. The people who object to what he is saying/doing don’t seem to think that “freedom” applies to everyone, just people they agree with. For the record, the idea of kneeling to protest came from a retired Green Beret, who told KC that there is nothing disrespectful about kneeling.  The people who find it offensive clearly are objecting to who is protesting, because they don’t believe that everyone deserves the same rights that they enjoy. It’s called hypocrisy.  Thank you Nike for providing us with a “Scarlett Letter” to easily identify the racists among us .
