What he is implying to the masses is that he sacrificed his career to become the face of the SJW.

In reality, he sacrificed a job he was going to lose anyways.

Because his last two years sucked. What... 3-16, 1-11?

He had the nerve the other day to compare himself to Mohammad Ali.

He's a loser that is now making money from other losers.


Took the 9'ers from 1st to worst....
That was a feat in itself

Before he quit.
He is a quitter.
He made no "sacrifice".

Anyone that thinks Nike went into this ad strategy blind is stupid. Corporate giants have data gurus that figured this one out
to the last penny and apparently they figured right. Nike stock went up as well as sales.

Go burn your Nike sox and shoes....that'll showem.

Did the data gurus realize he quit on the 49ers?
Data guys usually aren't sports guys.
Kap opted out he sacrificed nothing.

This isn't about Kap, it's about profit and loss. Kap is just the figure head for a well thought out ad campaign, and it's working. They don't give a sh!t about kid games, this is business, capitalism and advertising.

Just so you acknowledge it's a lie and he sacrificed nothing.
We will see how nike sales do.
A week after the campaign starts is not enough time to judge success.

That's true but anyone with a little Madison Ave. experience knows that it's just short term anyway. The new campaign is already on the designers desk waiting for the next hot property. Multinational retail/mfg ops didn't get that way by not following trends. People on ATS are so naive.

nice chatting with you, I've got to get back to work...

Like Cory Booker, I am going to take risk the chance of getting banned by posting this.


"I don't think this Nike ad campaign is very effective."


*boom*

That's it. Call me Spartacus.

I'm still trying to figure out if Nike is crazy or crazy smart.

Analysts put the value of the exposure they have gotten at around $43 million. Most of it positive or nuetral.
Kaepernick Campaign Created $43 Million in Buzz for Nike

Sales increased 31% after the ad aired.
Despite Outrage, Nike Sales Increased 31% After Kaepernick Ad

As of the 4th, stock had dropped about 3%.
Nike slides after tapping Colin Kaepernick as the new face of its 'Just Do It' ads

Makes a lot of sense. Stock price drops because stocks are held mostly by Baby Boomers and older Gen X, and they in general do not agree with the NFL protests. Sales increase because dominant Nike buyers are Millenials and the beginning of Gen Z do not have the same view. I'm just curious if the older folks will push that stock back up when they see how sales are going.

Believe in Something. Even if you sacrifice hundreds of Vietnamese children who earn 20 cents an hour. Just make them DO IT.

Funny I see more people in nike gear who spend more time at McDonald's than at the gym. Sweatpants were named that for a reason. Not to wipe french fry grease on.

But as our buddy Collin here has clearly shown the term "athlete" can be in name only if you like. You can be a complete failure but still get million dollar contracts with shoe companies who will put your name on their flip flops because it doesn't belonge anywhere else.

it's a shame the mentality at ATS isn't up to your high standards. Perhaps you could find a more intellectual site to visit.
Hope you enjoy your new surroundings. Bye.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the idiocy from both sides on this topic.

Im more sure than ever that most dont create their own opinions, and instead just do what their media tells them to think.
