Will Nike be adding THIS World Leader’s endorsement to their latest ad campaign?
Normally, when an athlete scores an endorsement deal it has something to do with his skill in his chosen sport.
But Nike’s latest endorsement hasn’t lived up to the athletic hype, and nobody is willing to sign him.
He’s blaming the baggage that comes with his politicizing the game — like his anti-police ‘pig socks’ — for being the real reason he isn’t playing.
Because it would hurt his ego to admit the truth. He just can’t cut it in the big leagues.
Think about it. Even Michael Vick managed a comeback. The difference was, he had the athleticism to back it up.
Elway offered him a job. But it wasn’t exactly what he wanted! So no boohoo’s for the cry baby please! We don’t always get exactly what we want in life. I’d love to see how much of this new Nike money he uses for his “cause” though. Time and money… protest away!

If anyone thought — for one minute — that Kaepernick could lead his team to a championship, he’d have been long since signed.
I'm developing an eye tick. Kaepernick sucked, that's why he's not on a roster. His wins versus loss record proves that. Numbers don't lie, only people do.

That’s ok… playing or not, Kaepernick still has his faithful fans. Not surprisingly, their attitude to the flag is pretty closely aligned to his own.
The first one is admittedly small potatoes by comparison. John O. Brennan, the CIA guy who violated the Constitution when he was busted by the Senate for breaking into confidential computer files relating to Senate Business.
Yet, not long ago, CNN was squealing like a stuck pig over John having his security credentials revoked.
Colin Kaepernick drew our collective attention to the problem of continued racial injustice in America. He did so not to disrespect our flag but to give meaning to the words of the preamble of our Constitution—“in order to form a more perfect union.” Well done, Colin, well done. https://t.co/4ALyUxLjM5

But the big fish in his fan base — one Nike might want to go to for endorsements in his part of the world — is Iran’s Own Tyrant-in-chief:

Yes. There’s a blue check-mark and everything.
He really is THAT Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Trying to join Colin in taking a swipe at the US flag.
What’s that expression about being ‘known by the company you keep’?
The athlete who decided that the time and place for a protest wasn’t on his day off, but while he was in uniform, and the anthem was playing won over the heart of Mr. ‘Death To America’ himself.
If Colin ever wants to see some REAL police brutality, he can just call up his Superfan and see some himself.
hi, free speech warrior.. how does Iran handle dissenters who protest its government

Glad you’re worried about what we have going on over here in our country while free speech and human rights doesn’t exist in yours. #Priorities

Oh you can dissent the government freely in Iran, 100%. No problem!
Then they kill you.

What’s next, Nike? An ambassador like this one?

Nah, that guy already died ‘doing what he loved’.
Kaepernick’s new ad campaign with Nike is talking about his sacrifice…
He made the decision to kneel and protest the anthem.
He made the decision not to sign with the Broncos when he had the chance.
And now, teams won’t touch him for fear of alienating the very patriotic fan base.
But in the booming Trump economy, even Kaepernick can’t stay jobless.
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
