I think a huge problem in his last year was due Chip Kelly. I certainly believe he is better than 90% of the backups in the NFL.
    I'd love to have him as the Falcons back up though I am certain the Sark would make him look terrible anyway

    As expected - Nike stock is now at an all-time high:





    As I said in the OP: "Props to Nike - no matter how people feel about CK, this is a slick advertising move."

    TBH idk why the Bills wouldn't look at him. They shouldn't be throwing that rookie to the wolves the way they are IMO.

    Considering Nike was within roughly 1% of their ATH when the announcement was made it's not that surprising. Considering that the market in general is hovering around ATH it's pretty common for company's like Nike to be at ATHs also. The fiscal benefits or drawbacks from this campaign won't be known until at least 6 months down the road when Nike has their quarterly earning reports..

    Sure, but I posted this in response to the naysayers who claimed this would be a terrible move for the company, pointing to the short term losses from the investors who are scared of anything that rocks the boat.

    That said, I'll bet dollars to donuts that post Xmas, NKEs numbers will be astonishingly good.

    I'm sure it spiked up sales, the kids that agree with the ad would be running out buying stuff, I'll keep wearing what I have but for sure won't be buying anymore.

    Didnít see a thread about this situation. He was a good kid. Tragic situation. Loved this tweet about Botham Jean.

    its 0.0007% and 0.00078%! the point is exactly the same and you missed it entirely.

    Good news! I got two of my friends to join the boycott of the NFL. They actually kind of agree with BLM, but we are Lion's fans so...low hanging fruit and all.

    In the wake of the Kaepernick ad, Nike announced that it had crushed earnings expectations, leading to a market surge Friday that found Nike's stock as the sole gainer in the entire Dow.

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the NFL have reached an agreement to settle his allegations that league teams colluded to deny him a contract after his controversial protests in which he took a knee during the national anthem.

    The league has also reached a deal with Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid over similar collusion allegations.

    A lawyer for Kaepernick, Mark Geragos, tweeted that after discussions, the "parties have decided to resolve their pending grievances." The NFL issued an identical statement.

    Details of the agreement are not public. But, as The Associated Press notes, "Considering the lost salary both players claimed and legal costs, the settlement could have climbed into the tens of millions."
