I figured my post above would get some downvotes, as will this one. Which furthers my point a bit. People accuse those with low pulse ratings on here as being "coots" and often time that may be true, but really the voting system should be deemed a "I disagree with what you said" button.

For the record, I have never agreed with the way the players have protested. I think they would have much better ways of getting their stance out there. However, I think the outrage behind it has been a bit crazy. I don't like how they've done it, so I've largely ignored it. I don't get why so many act as if they have pushed a bunch of WW2 veterans with American flags wrapped around them out onto midfield before the start of each game, and lit them on fire or something.

Colin Kaepernick has done and said some stupid things, but have many of you actually seen some of the good he's done for the world? He has donated over a million dollars to feed starving people, and this is a man that although he's made a lot of money, has done much of this giving after having his career cut short. Yes, he probably would have been a backup, but that's still a ton of money he would've kept making.

So many people upset over the protesters are always asking what these players have done to improve things when the cameras aren't on, but they highly ignore things like this. You don't have to like anything I'm typing here, and many of you won't. I just don't see how as a society, we've completely lost the ability to agree to disagree. These days everything has to be blown up, and has to turn into a "I'm boycotting this company" and "never watching this thing again" over each and every thing.

Doing those things is certainly your right, but if you boycott every little thing that is attached to something you don't agree with then you're going to quickly be left without much to support. It's not just that, but people lose the ability to just decide to no longer give a company their business anymore. It's got to be things like this, where people ask for an entire university to pull its business, and try to get other people to do the same. Everything has to be such an outrage, and everything has to be "conservative vs. liberal" all the time.

What irks me are polls that come out like this that inherently assume that most people agree with the "it's disrespectful to the flag side". The reality is the people that are pro-Kap (or at least his message) AND the people that don't care either way, are a lot larger than the people are anti-Kap. It's just that the anti Kap side has more money, power, influence, and is a lot louder.

Clemson University has a rich background to answering the call to serve our nation. Dedicated to the men and women that have answered that call, Memorial Stadium has always had an American flag overlooking the field during games. Is it time we separate ourselves from a company that just took a stance in the opposite direction?



Contrary to popular belief, when folks sign up for service in this country, they do not swear and oath to protect the flag. They swear an oath to protect the Constitution. Lest we forget, here is what the first amendment says...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

I might not like what Colin Kaepernick has to say, but I'll defend his right to say it to the death.

The flag is not what makes our country great, it's the bill of rights.

As a conservative thinker and history instructor I must say Lonnie Utah got it right. Having taken both constitional history and con. law I believe in the Bill of Rights under our constitution. I personally do not agree with the NFL protest stance or Nike’s ad, but I would step forward to defend the right of protest and free speech under the constitution. Our nation’s citizens seemed to have lost a critical ability within our historical framework to civil debate in the context of “agreeing to disagree” without losing respect for the opportunity to hear another point of view.

Stop buying or wearing Nike if you find the marketing campaign distasteful. Write the AD and BOT and express your feelings freely. Trust me Nike is already getting push back.
Ask yourselves something fundamental. Given the time and place would I want my voice silenced simply because someone else disagrees with my right of expression of a different opinion? I think not.

Your comparison is stupid and doesn't work because the rebel flag for most blacks represents OPPRESSION. You invite a symbol of hatred in to that environment. Nothing Kaepernick is doing represents any sort of oppression or acts of racism or symbolization of the unequal treatment of white people, regardless of its "offense to the military" or other strawman arguments used to oppose his message.

Why do so few understand this?

Our troops represent the flag, not the other way around. The flag represents the ideals that our country was founded on and the laws of the land. Freedom of speech is arguably the most important law it represents.

Now the "anti snowflake" and older "mature" crowd is losing their mind over extremely peaceful protest. It has nothing to do with the military but they want to make it about the troops. They pulled out the strawman to avoid facing the real issue at hand.

By getting mad and causing a stir you're validating Kaepernick and giving him purpose. Feel free not to buy Nike yourself but keep the opinions about him to yourself. We live in a crappy time as far as this outrage stuff goes and its done b/c it sells.

If schools/teams start pulling support for Nike b/c of this ad campaign then you'll start seeing college sports fold up b/c lord knows there are a ton of liberal idiots in our college system that will start causing issues.I guess its inevitable but i just hate to see it go.

Also the vote of a bunch of tnetters should not, and will not, have any bearing on Clemson’s contract with Nike or any other organization.

At the end of the day I most care about the quality of players that we recruit to this institution. The fact of the matter is, Nike is far and away the most popular brand amongst student athletes. There have been highly rated hs prospects who have chosen to not attend universities bc they were not Nike schools. Does anyone on this board want to alienate any potential student athletes that can help Clemson win games bc they don’t like Colin Kaepernick?

As much as I think Nike is pathetically misguided, the last thing Clemson needs to do is start making noise about pulling out their contract with them. If you don't think the "resistors"...err "reporters" in the media would not absolutely LOVE to take down a Southern school with claims of racial bias (with more than a little help from groups within Clemson itself) then you haven't been paying attention.

Let's see...who ELSE could have Nike chosen??? Hmm..anybody else in sports do an absolutely amazing job helping those less fortunate and fighting the good fight? Maybe some on the Texans (NO, not THAT Texan)? How about JJ Watt? That guy literally almost single-handily saved Houston from the terrible aftermath of a hurricane with like $60 million in donations. But instead, we get a whiney, faux social justice warrior who gets absolutely TONS of free sympathetic press and a paycheck from Nike and then pretends like he is some lonely man fighting the good fight all by himself. Pffft...give me a freakin' break. That guy is more coddled than Saban on ESECPN.

First of all, Watt has a deal with Reebok so it would be pretty hard for Nike to sign him to anything. Also, think what you want about Kaepernick, but you really should look up a lot of what he's done. He's donated over a million of his own money, and helped raise money to over 40 charities himself. Then, whether you agree with his stance or the way he went about it or not, at least he was really to take a stand(or knee in this case) for something he believed in. He's received a ton of backlash as a result, and had his NFL career cut short due to it. I'm not seeing how that is being coddled.

So let me get this straight:

People rioting in the street and causing problems = bad (I agree.)

Someone peacefully and silently protesting by kneeling during the national anthem and everyone is still losing their minds like that’s somehow worse...

I don’t agree with his view on this, I don’t think he’s a hero for what he did, but the people who are losing their minds over his difference of opinion and exercising his free speech don’t really seem to understand the values of the country you act so proud of.

Apparently we’ve become such a petty polarized nation that any show of disagreement and people want to destroy companies with boycotts and destroy people’s lives. If you don’t agree with him, ignore him. All this uproar is just giving him more attention.

No matter what side of the issue you are on regarding the NFL kneeling and the reasons behind it, here are the facts. Kaepernick is a has been (if you don't believe me Google his stats) who didn't develop "ideals" until after he was riding the pine. He has sacrificed absolutely nothing and gained everything in his bid to politicize himself for media attention and the quest for more money. Nike, a company that allegedly uses sweatshop labor to produce their goods, a stark human rights violation, has in an ironic twist jumped to champion Kaepernick's supposed cause which is tied to protesting for human rights. Nike has taken advantage of a politicized and divisive issue (that most Americans have already let be known they want left out of their sports) and made it worse all in an effort to sell more shoes. Do not believe for one moment this stunt represents anything more than an opportunity for profit to Nike. So once again regardless of the side you are on Nike does not actually care about anything other than money and has proven that they are willing to help to continue to devide Americans with media charged political savvy all to chase the almighty dollar. Should Clemson drop Nike? As soon as they can legally do so. Buy out the contract, have lawyers look for a loophole, whatever. But don't support the heartless corporation willing to use Americans by pretending to care in search of greater profits for one second more than you have to.


Nike isn't against the military

They are against racially-motivated police violence

Nike has the right of free speech but so do I. I will no longer purchase anything with the Nike name or swish on it. Many on Nike’s side will call this a hate boycott. But it is not. It is just my right to excercise my same rights.

There are so many other options available that nike is just an over priced product. So long nike at least at my house, my closet and my sports gear etc...

I plan to hit about $100 worth of nike golf balls in a very deep lake unless they can be recycled into a more useful product. Maybe they can be recycled into artificial limbs for our injured soldiers.

Most people do not know that during WW II the Germans drove GMC trucks to the beach to fight the allies, their communication equipment was supported by IBM associated with a company called Hollerithse. Other companies who did business with the Nazis were Coke and Kodak. Also, Bayer pharmaceuticals did great deal of business with th Germans as did Ford , Chase National Bank, BASF and ITT Inc.

All of these companies were willing to exchanged dollars for American, Canadian and British lives!

That being said - none of those companies currently support someone who blatantly disrespected our fallen HEROES, first responders, men in blue, and AMERICA basically.
