Colin Kaepernick Nike Deal

Colin Kaepernick Nike Deal

Hillsborough police are asking people to eschew a "national trend of destroying perfectly good Nike shoes", according to the department's Facebook page.

"I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent", Trump told Daily Caller.

Previously, Trump has been quite clear that he does not believe the NFL's ability to make business decisions he disagrees with "is what this country is all about".

Rich tweeted on Monday night that a member of his crew cut the trademark swoosh off his socks and that he was also planning to burn them. A similar grievance is still pending by unsigned safety Eric Reid, who played with Kaepernick in San Francisco and joined in the protests.

Kaepernick made headlines worldwide in 2016 when he chose to kneel for the USA national anthem as a protest against police brutality and racial inequality.

Kaepernick and another former 49ers player, Eric Reid, have not been signed by any of the NFL's 32 teams since their protests spread around the league.

The users burned the products in protest of Nike's decision - and of Kaepernick's, to kneel during the playing of the national anthem at NFL games in a statement against the treatment of black people in the United States.

He also acknowledged that the choice to use Kaepernick was Nike's to make. "Even if it means sacrificing everything".

Now Nike has added him to a line-up of athletes to feature in a new ad campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It' slogan".

Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the National Football League alleging team owners colluded to stop him securing a contract after he became a free agent. "But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a bad message and a message that shouldn't be sent".

Colin dominated global Twitter trends list and dinner table discussions on Tuesday when Nike revealed that the sports star is the face of its 30th anniversary campaigns.

With that, Bryant acknowledged he too would've received and accepted the criticism that's been heaped on other athletes who have aligned themselves with Kaepernick's message. Nike did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
