Tiger Woods calls Nike Kaepernick ad a 'beautiful spot'

Tiger Woods calls Nike Kaepernick ad a 'beautiful spot'

Following the revelation Monday that Kaepernick, who reportedly has been under contract with Nike since 2011, would be involved in an ad campaign, the National Football League said in a statement that it "believes in dialogue, understanding and unity" and embraces "the role and responsibility of everyone involved with this game to promote meaningful, positive change in our communities". It can also be seen online.

Sources say Kaepernick watched the ad's premiere from Nike headquarters in Oregon. "Investors in OR, where Nike is headquartered, are buying the stock 850% more than they are selling".

Woods shot even-par 70 Friday in Round 2 of the BMW Championship and sits T-11 at 8 under par for the week.

The two minute-plus spot features dozens of athletes, including tennis champion Serena Williams, basketball's LeBron James and Kenya's Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge.

Which means Nike would have had to have doled out that much money to receive the same kind bang it received from the Kaepernick announcement.

"When corporate does things that are outside of golf and outside of my realm, that's what they do". "I don't think it's appropriate what they did", Trump said in an interview with Fox News before a rally in Montana thursday night.

Falwell then went on to recognize the possibility of Nike running the campaign as a "publicity stunt" saying, "But if it's just a publicity stunt to bring attention to Nike or whatever, that's different". But they're going to have to convince us that they're not proactively attacking law enforcement officers and our military. It's a handsome spot. "It's a lovely spot and pretty powerful people in the spot".

The commercial has polarized opinion, with Trump among those critical of Nike for giving Kaepernick a public platform.

"What was Nike thinking?".

Bob Dorfman, a sports marketing executive at Baker Street Advertising, told Bloomberg that Nike did not take any financial risk making Kaepernick the face of the campaign.
