    The anthem is played to honor what is being played in this great country, originally without interference from government and outside processes, often for sports that were created in this country, and for the freedom to do it.

    No one should give a crap what the players think during the anthem or any other time they play. They're paid workers. They should perform their duties as specified by the contracts they sign. Just like all the other workers out there.

    Would have been better off ignoring his protest it only blew up when he got shit on for it and that started feeding the old controversy tornado and then Trump weighed in (of course) and suddenly it became a protest against Trump too. It's just a stupid game I don't get why they need anthems before the game starts anyway do you forget what country you are in when you buy a ticket? Save the anthems for international events.

    It's a National pride thing. And to be thankful and respectful of how much [how many lives] we have sacrificed to build this country and gain our Freedom.

    Guess you guys don't have that up there?

    Please explain and/or give a source for right of free speech in the work place you speak of.

    I find the whole controversy stupid (and yet I'm weighing in).
    Why is the national anthem even played at a sporting event? If it was never shown on camera, and Trump wasn't poop-tweeting about it, no one would care.
    How is kneeling for the national anthem related to what he's even protesting? Before this controversy, most of the players kind of just stood there, rocking back and forth, psyching themselves up. Some would say the national anthem. Who knew what they were thinking? No one cared.
    Now....sheesh.

    Nike will NOT be on my buy list!
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    davida, your employee kneels to disrespect the flag in front of some of your patriotic customers? You are good with that?

    Nike will do just fine, I'm pretty sure that if all the Trumpster fans quit buying their sneakers sales might drop by less than 1%. On the other hand the antitrumpers will more than make up the difference.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    my employees don’t have a contract so complicated you need a team of lawyers to comprehend it

    I am glad the league changed the rules for this season to require standing for the anthem, but think they did the right thing letting last season play out

    Let's see...he knelt because blacks are supposed to be oppressed and suffer police brutality.
    The nfl is 68 percent black...the whites are being discriminated against ...where is affirmative action for whites....blacks are about 12 percent of the population ..so there should be about 12 percent of the players black....one in eight...but they are 2 out of three...so there is roughly...without doing the math...a 550 percent favouritism for the blacks.
    Where is the unfairness to blacks?
    If we give that same favouritism to whites..then about one in 65 players would be black.
    The police shooting that BLM was formed from turned out to be a good shooting...so colon is literally a piece of crap...So Nike is also supporting these falsehoods..They will fire you for anything that damages your Image..Nike hires this guy due to his pathetic image...wow...The guy is an absolute Racist all the way through.
    And Nike is hoping to up sales to more blacks...by using a racist...Nike is now about racism..
    Anyone who wears Nike needs to toss em in the trash now IMO.
