After Nike Says Kaepernick ‘Sacrificed Everything,’ Chris Kyle’s Widow Sends CLEAR Message

Published

on

Nike’s latest ad blunder involving former NFL quarterback turned social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick has caused quite the uproar on social media, with a large number of people expressing their distaste for the move. Some people have gone so far as to burn their Nike apparel, an act only defined as someone seeking social media ‘likes’ as those items could’ve been donated to the needy, poor, and impoverished veterans and children. Either way, people don’t like it. People are tired of politics ruining sports.

Nike’s stock dropped a bit from this, causing them to lose quite a sum of money. Oh well, that’s what happens when a major company sides with a character in sports that a majority of the fans seem to hate. It doesn’t make sense why Nike would commit brand suicide like this, but nevertheless, it’s done and they’re seeing the bad end of the stick from it.

What happened was that they picked a terrible slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

That triggered people big time because Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract, which wasn’t much of a sacrifice other than it was him being entitled. Now he can’t find a job on the field because no one wants his political nonsense sideshow, even if he is better than most second or third string QB’s on paper, but it would be a long shot for him to get back into it two years out of the game. Let’s be honest, he’s no Michael Vick. He didn’t have prison workouts to keep him in shape.

Factor that in with him signing a book deal reportedly worth $1 million and he hasn’t exactly sacrificed anything, he just keeps getting richer.

So basically, a guy who made millions playing football turned into a social justice warrior, divided the country with his disrespectful abuse of his platform and dissing the National Anthem and the American flag. The guy can’t find a team anymore after he bailed on his contract, no one really likes him enough to pay him millions and he turned the stadium upside down.

Now we’re here, he’s still getting money, and two years after he’s been out of the league Nike shows up with his big goofy face as the poster boy for their 30th-anniversary ad of “Just Do It” – how about no thanks.

Not everyone is thrilled. Even though burning clothes is a dumb idea (because homeless vets are in need), I get the resentment towards the fellow, but let’s make this even worse.

Let’s throw fire on the flames.

Let’s remind everyone that Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was murdered by someone suffering from PTSD.

Guess who sacrificed everything? Chris Kyle and the man who shot him both gave everything thanks to serving in the military. Chris passed when another veteran couldn’t take it anymore and Chris had no chance because he didn’t see it coming. It’s a sad and horrible story all around for both families.

Guess who sacrificed nothing? Colin Kaepernick.

Chris Kyle’s wife reminded him of that.

She reminded everyone.

“Nike, I love your gear, but you exhaust my spirit on this one. Your new ad with Colin Kaepernick, I get the message, but that sacrificing everything thing,” wrote Taya Kyle. “It just doesn’t play out here. Sacrificing what exactly? A career? I’ve done that both times I chose to stay home and be with my kids instead of continuing my business climb … and it wasn’t sacrificing everything. It was sacrificing one career and some money and it was because of what I believe in and more importantly, who I believe in.”

“You want to talk about someone in the NFL sacrificing everything? Pat Tillman. NFL STARTING, not benched, player who left to join the Army and died for it. THAT is sacrificing everything for something you believe in,” wrote Taya Kyle.

“How about other warriors? Warriors who will not be on magazine covers, who will not get lucrative contracts and millions of followers from their actions and who have truly sacrificed everything. They did it because they believed in something. Take it from me, when I say they sacrificed everything, they also sacrificed the lives of their loved ones who will never be the same. THAT is sacrificing everything for something they believe in.”

“All I know is, I was actually in the market for some new kicks and at least for now, I’ve never been more grateful for Under Armour.”

Gillette Just Rolled Unbelievable Ad That Puts Nike To Total Shame – Spread This EVERYWHERE

Published

Nike thought the knew exactly what they were doing with putting the controversial face of divisiveness and hate at the center of their new ad campaign. Colin Kaepernick and the sports brand sure got a lot of attention for this bold, which wasn’t well received by patriotic people in this country.

While boycotts and bans of the brand still continue on into this week, another big product name has blown them out of the water and put them to total shame. Shaving blade maker, Gillette, has just debuted their new ad which features a certain, still employed, football player with an incredible message.

This is positive public relations work and a commercial that conservatives can and will get behind. Americans want companies who show respect for our nation, appreciation for people, and doesn’t get political with an aim do divide. Gillette just did that in an incredible way that everyone must see.

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by trustworthy news outlet, Western Journal:

While Nike was drawing massive attention for its Kaepernick ad, another major company released an ad talking about the adversity another NFL player really has overcome, and sends a much more positive message than disrespecting law enforcement.

Gillette, which makes shaving blades, released an ad touting the amazing story of one-handed Seattle Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin. The ad shows a one-handed Griffin — who got a mention in the Kaepernick ad that lasted barely three seconds — growing up and trying to keep pace with his older brother Shaquill (who also plays for the Seahawks.)

“Your best never comes easy,” the ad reads. The ad shows Shaquem never making an excuses or whining about the disadvantage of playing without a hand. Gillette also released a follow-up video showcasing the family affair that Shaquem’s career turned out to be.

Now, Griffin may not have had to sacrifice anything per se, but the ad is a heck of a lot more uplifting and powerful than Nike’s with Kaepernick.

Good for Gillette. This ad deserved to get much more coverage than it did.

It isn’t focusing on nonsensical culture wars. It isn’t giving tacit approval to disparaging police officers or the country. It focuses on family, incredible work ethic and never making excuses.

And we all could use more of that.

Nike made all sorts of headlines in recent weeks when it chose to use the controversial Colin Kaepernick as the face of its 30th anniversary ads.

Kaepernick critics were not thrilled for a multitude of reasons. After all, Kaepernick was the man who sparked the NFL’s current tumult of national anthem protests, an act that many Americans find disrespectful to the men and women who protect and serve this country.

There’s also the little fact that Kaepernick has previously worn socks that depicted police officers as pigs. He also wore a shirt glorifying former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Not exactly an uplifting message.

Then Nike gives America an ad that looks like this:

“Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything,” the ad reads.

A television ad also debuted during the NFL’s opening weekend.

“So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if your dreams are crazy enough,” Kaepernick says in the television ad.

Unsurprisingly, the ad campaign was hotly divisive. Kaepernick fans were obviously thrilled that he was being thrust back into the national limelight.

But perhaps most importantly of all, Kaepernick supporters, and even some neutral observers, have been forced to answer the question of what exactly Kaepernick has sacrificed.

His NFL career? People seem quick to forget that Kaepernick willingly opted out of his San Francisco 49ers contract after the 2016 NFL season — when he’d lost his starting QB job anyway. He was also offered at least one contract, by the Denver Broncos, which he also declined, according to USA Today. It’s not exactly a sacrifice if Kaepernick is willingly staying away from the NFL.

His money? Nope. Nike’s new deal with Kaepernick is reportedly worth millions. That’s not bad for an athlete who hasn’t actually played meaningful competitive football is over a year.

Fame? Again, say what you will about Kaepernick, but he’s undoubtedly a much more visible and public figure since beginning his social activism campaign. He’s also not exactly fading into the sunset.

So again, what exactly is Kaepernick sacrificing other than some time to shoot those Nike ads? The clear answer seems to be “not much.”

MASSIVE Sign Went Up Outside Major NFL Stadium That Has All Disrespectful Players Panicking

Published

...

* By

The new season for the National Football League has just begun and one major stadium is already preparing. Although the league has announced that this coming season will be much different than the disastrous last one after imposing a new rule about kneeling, fans feel that it’s too late and are taking matters into their own hands to send a bold message.

If the unprecedented NFL boycott last season didn’t send disrespectful players a big enough message, then this warning sign that just went up probably will.  Fans in Green Bay, Wisconsin are passionate about their Packers and the sport but many gave up their support after kneeling took over the game and went unpunished by top NFL executives. They’re hoping for something different this season, but aren’t taking any chances.

An impressive banner was created to get the blunt message out early and has just gone up right across the street from Lambeau Field in Green Bay along a home’s private fence that faces the stadium.

The warning is clear and simple and well-played with the play on how “pack” was used for Packers. The proud American(s) who put this up love their country more than their team and will pick respecting the flag over players any day. The message is also a reference to President Trump’s suggestion about kicking players out of America for disrespecting the country on the field.

Packers fans have a team they can be proud of which starts with their incredible coach who ensured his players aren’t like others in the league. They hope it stays that way, which is why the warning sign went up, considering that there will be some new players on the team this coming season. However, Coach Mike McCarthy isn’t going to let it slide any more than Packers fans.

Green Bay Packers and Coach Mike McCarthy has a much different approach to these disgusting protests than others in the league.

McCarthy doesn’t seem to agree with the Commissioner’s original apologetic approach and has something else planned for these anti-American stars who think they are going to get away with protesting on his field. They are paid millions to play a game – not make negative political statements.

Madison.com reports:

Mike McCarthy doesn’t know if anyone on his sideline will join the ranks of NFL players using the national anthem as an opportunity to protest.

But if they do, the Green Bay Packers coach can say this for certain: They will do so with a knowledge of the history of the anthem and an understanding of how important he believes it is.

Last season, the coach was asked what he expects from his team when the anthem is played before each game. Rather than giving a politically correct answer of everyone having a right to free speech and to express how they somehow feel oppressed while making millions playing a game, he explained that he expects patriotism and good sportsmanship.

More importantly, McCarthy has taken it upon himself to educate his players on why we stand for the anthem since ignorance is why most of the idiotic athletes are sitting or kneeling on the sidelines. He’s putting knowledge of the real history of this nation on the field to stop players from making fools of themselves with protests.

When entitled, disrespectful players from other teams show up to his field, they are going to see what real men who respect this nation look like. In turn, those sitting out will look stupid in the shadows of the heroes standing for the anthem.

McCarthy said he addresses the anthem and his expectation of proper decorum during it with the players via a preseason presentation. 

“It’s something that I’ve done each and every year here since I’ve been the head coach,” McCarthy said. “We have a PowerPoint presentation that you update (each year), and you always try to deliver the message clearly to the team.

“Our approach has always been to give the history and the understanding of what the national anthem means, and why it’s played before any National Football League game, particularly how (the tradition) started after World War II. I go through the whole history and the importance of what it means to you personally.”

This is the exact stance that every coach of every team should take since the NFL Commissioner refused to prioritize patriotism over the sport.

The Dallas Cowboys head coach, Jason Garrett, recently came out with the same stance as McCarthy, saying that the National Anthem is “sacred” and he expects his team to stand.

The Packers coach recognizes that the problem most of the players have is that they don’t understand what they think they are protesting by sitting out the anthem. That not only makes the player look stupid but is an embarrassment to the entire team and the NFL.

It’s nice to see two teams with their priorities straight and it’s a shame that so many other coaches and players in the NFL have tainted the reputation of the sport, leading to many spectators boycotting the season. Other teams should take note and run their operation like McCarthy and Garrett – with respect and honor for our flag and freedom and the real heroes who gave their life defending both.
