Tiger Woods: New Nike Kaepernick Commercial Is "Beautiful"

Colin Kaepernick

Nike aired its first "Just Do It" ad, narrated by Colin Kaepernick, during Thursday night's National Football League season opener between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. Kaepernick tweeted the video with the caption, "Believe in something".

"Two years ago, Colin Kaepernick sat on the bench during the national anthem for the first time before the San Francisco 49ers played the Green Bay Packers in a preseason game". If you were seeking anger over the union of the shoe giant and Colin Kaepernick, the Internet provided a seemingly inexhaustible buffet of offerings the past several days.

It should be noted the overall response to the new Kaepernick ad has been positive. I'm also thinking the irony is that while I am not privy to the numbers, it's likely he gained a lucrative Nike contract.

Nike has drawn national outrage after they named Kaepernick as the face of its "Just Do It" campaign.

At his Montana rally on Thursday night, Trump responded to Nike's new ad featuring Kaepernick. "Having a huge company back him. could be a controversial reason for this company, but they're not afraid. I'm only one person but it makes me feel good".

Brady, who always stays away from political issues, evaded the media's questions about the ad Friday during his press conference at Gillette Stadium. "It's OK to be different, it's what makes us the same - embrace it and remember that nobody's a flawless patriot, especially not me".

Frankly, while Jones seemed to be in all-world form, Ryan - a virtual non-participant in the exhibition games - looked rusty. Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson dialed up some razzle dazzle action with this Nelson Agholor pass to Nick Foles .

Nike's use of Kaepernick has led to calls for boycotts by some customers.

The school also made headlines previous year by declaring its teams would not play in any game in which a player knelt for the national anthem.

No Falcons players were absent from the sideline and none has protested in the recent past.

Edison Trends said it analyzed purchases from 3 million Americans' email receipts to amass the data in addition to reviewing the purchases of any Nike products from over 200 USA retail outlets over the three-day stretch.

Like Kaepernick, Boyer is who I turn to when I want opinions on the bigger issues in this country and how they relate to sports.
