Nike Sales Up 31 Percent Since Start of Kaepernick Campaign

Caner said the university, located in Cleveland, Ga., would reconsider a relationship with Nike if the company apologizes to the military and law enforcement. In an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres's daytime talk show, the Pro Football Hall of Famer cited his father's military service in claiming that the protests staged by Colin Kaepernick were not meant to be disrespectful of "anybody in the armed services".

The former athlete played from 1993 until retiring in 2007; he won the Super Bowl (XLII) with his team during the 2007 season.

"I've bought my last pair of Nike shoes", he said, explaining that he was done with Nike due to their endorsement of former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick, who started the national anthem protests by declaring that he is "not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

Though the GMA host agrees with the NFL protests, Strahan did offer one note of criticism: The players and the league owners need to work together.

The technology sector is among the biggest potential losers as tariffs would make imported computer parts more expensive. The auto had been set to replace the Focus in the US , with the Focus Active going on sale in the second half of 2019 .

Kaepernick was the first player to kneel in protest of police brutality and racial inequality.

"Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad a year ago comparison", Trump tweeted.

Michael Strahan has previously been outspoken regarding the controversial NFL protests during the national anthem, even defending Colin Kaepernick for starting the national movement. Strahan was asked Monday. "Some folks are tied into long-term contracts, so I don't think we've seen the end of this". "Adidas giving me a voice and Nike giving Colin voice on a big business level makes the world a more advanced place". "Based on that conversation with him, I'm pretty sure I would have".

"But I also would've been proactive in getting more organized because I do believe that there needs to be more organization between the players and the ownership", he added.
