Dolphins' Stills encouraged by Nike ad deal with Kaepernick

  • What did Jerry Jones say about Nike’s new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick? | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Nike has unveiled its first "Just Do It" ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick, a spot scheduled to air during the National Football League season opener Thursday night as well as during the U.S. Open tennis tournament and other major sporting events.

Nike's ad featuring Colin Kaepernick sparked opinions on social media nearly instantly.

"The 30-year Just Do It Nike campaign, it's just an honor to be in it".

Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, unveiled his first ad of the new campaign Monday. It will be us walking into stores, with the service guy coming up like, 'Hey buddy, can I help you with anything?'. The evening culminated in the reveal of the latest LeBron James Nike basketball shoe: a women's sneaker designed by three female African-American designers and inspired by strong African-American women.

The NFL said it "embraces the role and responsibility of everyone involved with this game to promote meaningful, positive change in our communities".

"I thought it was awesome", said McCourty.

The tweet inspired more players to kneel, which revived the issue between the players and their rights within the NFL.

He was the first to kneel during the national anthem to highlight racial and social injustice.

Just in case listeners didn't connect " Hard White " to the Cardi B altercation, Minaj added the hashtag #NYFW to her post. Opening her latest episode on Monday, she got straight down to business, recapping the incident from her perspective.

On Wednesday, Nike released an advert featuring Kaepernick which will be aired during Thursday's season-opening game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons. Become the greatest athlete ever.

But to one fellow member of the pro-quarterback fraternity, an athlete's sacrifice - even one that could mean no longer being a professional athlete - doesn't compare to some more real-world examples.

He also said, "As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way - I mean, I wouldn't have done it, in another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn't do, but I personally am on a different side of it".

Stephen Martin, the owner of Prime Time Sports, said he knows he is jeopardizing his business, as a large part of his inventory is Nike NFL jerseys, according to KRDO.

Kaepernick is suing the NFL, saying its owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests that spread to teams nationwide.

Stills, who talks often with Kaepernick, said he senses increasing support for the protesters as their cause is better understood.

Newton said Kaepernick has his respect. Pepsi ended up pulling a commercial that showed Kendall Jenner giving a Pepsi to a police officer; some said the ad trivialized the "Black Lives Matter" protests.

"Nike's campaign will generate both attention and discussion which is, arguably, one of its central aims", he said.
