You know, given the logic conservatives use, they should all be saying "you know what, Kaepernick is right, Nike is right."

Follow their logic:

Quote:
Trump is right because the stock market is doing well.
That's pretty much their fallback to any controversial thing Trump does. "Well, the economy is good, therefore the ends justify the means."

So, Nike stock is up something like 8% in a few days. "Well, Nike's stock is good. Therefore, Kaepernick is right and Nike is right. The ends justify the means!" Nevermind that this might be natural fluctuation in the price or that maybe it was undervalued before. None of that matters. It all comes down to the bottom line. If businesses are making money, they are in the right. Period. The end.

The "left" did the same thing with Obama. I would complain about how the wealth gap was continuing to grow to record proportions and the reply would be about how well the markets had rebounded.

That sound you hear is the deafening silence from those who predicted Nike's demise.

Not to wander off topic -- but you know I will....and it will trigger some of you -- lol....

But Yeti seems to be managing fine as well --- opening stores up in key markets.

Boycotts for Chick Fil A, Yeti, Nike and even the NFL don't do much to really hurt the bottom line...the profits of these companies but they give folks something to get excited about I guess.

(too lazy to do boycotts).

For a counterfactual, Papa John's is hurtin' for certain. But they *might* bounce back as soon as they put chronological and philosophical distance between themselves and founder John Schattner.

According to the articles, Nike has only grown 2% since the Kap ad. Good for them after dropping 3% in 24 hours after the ad released.

Short term effect where all Kap supporters ran out and buy Nike gear. Long term folks like me will simply never buy a Nike product ever again. Short term gain, long term pain.

Stop it. Youíre gonna keep buying Nikes forever.

You guys have already replaced the Nikes you tossed in anger with new pairs of Nikes.
