College of the Ozarks Drops Nike from Uniforms

LeBron James

Stephen Martin, the owner of Prime Time Sports, said he knows he is jeopardizing his business, as a large part of his inventory is Nike NFL jerseys, according to KRDO.

The ad's most prominent detractor, President Donald Trump, tweeted on Wednesday that Nike was "getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts". I'm not gonna speak for them, but there was no one happy about it.

A college has announced that it will no longer partner with Nike on gear after the apparel giant's decision to feature Colin Kaepernick as the face of the 30th anniversary of the famous "Just Do It" slogan.

Denis Poroy/APNike's Colin Kaepernick-narrated ad has made headlines all week.

At the start of the ad, Kaepernick says: "If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good".

In a 2016 interview with NFL.com, Kaepernick explained why he chose to take a knee during the anthem. "Even if it means sacrificing everything". Some people even burned their sneakers to protest, so rightly or wrongly (wrongly is the correct answer), it was a controversial move.

The former quarterback was ousted from the NFL two years ago after he began kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and racism in the United States.

Meanwhile, Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging that teams colluded to keep him out of the league.

Hamilton said she did so to show support for Kaepernick and fellow Nike ambassador Serena Williams.

The campaign includes video ads and billboards, like one displayed atop a Nike store in downtown San Francisco on Wednesday.

The issue of players kneeling during the national anthem could once again take center stage as the NFL season kicks off on Thursday.

So, while the new ad appeals to some consumers and drives them to buy more Nike merchandise, others have expressed that they are put off by the message and have decried the brand on social media. And then there's President Donald Trump, who predictably tweeted his disapproval.

"So we've had guys "do it" through sports, but Kaepernick is a guy doing it right now, so I think it's a great pairing with Nike and him".
