Pat Tillman's wife has asked that her husband not be dragged into this. She also said that Tillman would have supported Kaepernick's protest

The point is being missed. It's really not about Pat Tillman. It's about sacrifice. Ok, take Pat Tillman's name out and let's say (fill in the name of any fallen soldier here) gave the ultimate sacrifice. What has Kaepernick ever sacrificed? The NFL contract the he opted out of? Was that his sacrifice? To say he sacrificed everything is an insult to those who truly have.

I think David's right. However one views Kaepernick, the ad campaign is very overstated. Had it said, he stood up for what he believed in, fine -- he did.

For what it's worth, Nike stock hit its all-time high yesterday. I didn't see what it did today.

No one said it did. Nice deflection though. The ad says he sacrificed everything. Everything? I'm not asking for everything, I just want to know one thing. What has Kaepernick ever sacrificed?

Hmmm.
https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/09/...ographer-says/

“Pat would have found Kaepernick an extremely admirable person for what he believed in,” [Tillman biographer] Krakauer told The Washington Post. “I have no doubt if he was in the NFL today, he would be the first to kneel. So there is irony about what is going on.”

Millions of dollars donated to charitable causes and in lost wages plus a career he's been working towards since Pee Wee football. What have you done to fight racism and police brutality?
