      [Sports News]


      The just released Nike sports apparel ad campaign, (a Just Do It tribute) which includes Colin Kaepernick, is just in time for the Football season! And boy does it have some people steamed. Mostly the fake patriots who love to claim the flag as an idol.

      With the pump being primed and the protesters of the protester, whom themselves should probably be protested, up in arms, I think it fitting for folks to be reminded just how we got here.

      Colin Kaepernick made a person decision, in a show of support for the BLM movement he decided to no longer participate in the ritualistic pregame national anthem ceremony. So while others stood with hands over their hearts and filled with song, he sat idly by the hydration station (Sports Drink cooler) in silence. A military Veteran took noticed of this and he didn't like it, and he let it be known. Colin and he had a talk, one thing lead to another. Ending with him telling Colin that if he wanted to protest in silence it would be better for him to at least kneel, out of respect to falling service men, during the singing of the anthem. So he did ...and word started to spread, and other players followed his lead, and all hell broke loose. The act of kneeling brought a lot more attention. Turns out the Veteran was wrong, people were more offended by the kneeling than his previous non-participation. If only he would have remained sitting by the hydration station, would we be here?

      If you didn't know. Now you know. This is how the kneeling got started.

          In the time since this topic was posted Nike has release the Just Do It --Dream Crazy-- ad. The voice over is done by Colin Kaepernik. But the ad isn't related to BLM at all, it is about determination, about being the best you you can be; no matter the barriers.

              I agree with what he's doing. I'll even defend his right to do so. I do NOT agree with those that say he is being black-balled. Back in 2016, John Elway and the Denver Broncos offered him a chance to join their team. Kaepernick turned them down.

              I like Jesse Ventura's take on the situation.

              And while I'm here, those idiots that are burning their NIKE apparel and shoes would do better to donate those items to a veteran's organization. IF they really do care about veterans.

              PEACE

                  This isn't about his football career, he has filed suit against the league regarding that, this is about his life being ruined. For the act of protesting, he has now been marked for life. Kinda like what happened to baseball player Curt Flood, the father of free agency among athletes, though he didn't win his free agent suit against MLB --it went to the Supreme Court-- the solidarity of players formed afterward did work to enriched all American sporting game athletes forever more as they did eventfully successfully attain free agent rights. Sadly Curt was never welcomed back into the league or into the hearts of the populace ...though his place in history is that of a game changer.
