    As a fellow Arizonan, I couldn't agree more.

    I stopped buying Nike when the kneeling thing came up. I seem to be doing okay without Nike, and vise versa I am sure. I also stopped watching the NFL, and that also hasn't upset my apple cart.

    Nike, Colin K, and the soccer player gal (whatever her name is) can express themselves anyway they want as long as all they are hurting are my feelings (I'll be okay, thanks for thinking about me).

    I think Colin and that soccer chick are a phony as a three dollar bill. Such fake outrage and shaming. Besty Ross died 183 years ago. Shame on her for not jumping a plane and going to Washington DC to complain about slavery!!!! At least she could have tweeted outrage, that would have meant something.

    Play for the American soccer team, and sit for the anthem? You can't get more two faced than that.

    I'm not a CK fan, but I think he did Nike a favor on this one.

    RE: The National Anthem business with the Womens US Soccer Team, that nonsense really bothered me. You are on the world stage representing our country, it was not the time and place for this bullshit ****ery.

    I find it hilarious. She took something IMPORTANT to her as well as them and made it about something she despised. She can never have this back and she did to herself and her team. I find it rather selfish to say the least.

    she basically put her whole team in the spotlight in a very negative way, it was indeed selfish, but not surprising in the day and age of the "Oppression Olympics"....

    Which only further goes to substantiate my choice to support Trump. Most of the people against him are the ones I despise in the first place. Most of the ones that despise him do so with no reasoning other than they don't like him. I don't care if I like him or not if he gets the job done.

    Because it's not all about money all the time. Sometimes it's about doing what's right. I don't know why this is hard to understand. Frankly, people should understand why he did it in spite of the jobs that won't be coming, and applaud him for it.

    Are your morals for sale, no matter how little the cost?

    The CEO of Nike has spoken and what he says, goes.

    Exactly! Nike is not going to be offering high wage jobs. They are well known for their sweat shop wages. Those jobs would be filled by low income government dole sucklings.

    Devils Advocate:

    Nike knew the shoe was ugly and unlikly to sell. So they pulled it, blamed Kuckernap and are dancing around with all the hype and free publicity.


    Funny how the narrative could be "Wealthy Male Athlete bullies company to pull product paying tribute to one of the most influential woman founders of the United States. Patriarchy Wins Again"

    Az didn’t tell them they cant come. We just told them we aren’t going to subsidize there political bullshit if they do. Would AZ benefit from a Nike factory here? Yes. But we have so many people coming here from liberal cities and states because they have voted themselves into an impossible environment that Arizona can afford to not have them and morales mean more. I haven’t loved everything ducey has done as governor but this makes up for it. Seriously when can you say you’ve heard of a politician give up money for integrity? Makes me proud to be from and in AZ.
