That starts July thirtieth as far as season. Games is going to be the black lives matter restart tournament. Basically, it's going to be on the court and they're allowing players to have a assane or phrase or a word about social justice, the back of their uniforms. And They gave the players A. List of twenty nine different slogan, some of our one, where some of them are a phrase that they can put on the back of their jerseys, instead of their last names, Lebron Lebron James, the most outspoken athlete. Along with Colin Kaepernick! An cabinet obviously didn't play right now, but.

Less less focus on this rob we we've talked about. Lebron. You know not having something on. What do you think about what Barkley said?

Police reform and all that that doesn't happen overnight coach Kaz. Some some incident happens where we know what's wrong. And then we changed the whole police structure. In three weeks hundred that that doesn't happen this legislation. It's all kinds of stuff retraining of officers. Do you know what I mean like? Getting rid of bad officers and bad cops, and what there's a whole thing and there's nothing. Get what he's saying. You don't WanNa make it aside show, but having. Something on the back of Your Jersey is not going to mean that you can't take care of the other things, because if that's the case, then we should just stop everything right. Charles shouldn't be doing basketball game then Charles shouldn't be doing inside the NBA. Right if that's going to take away from it, it can't be like that..
The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading
"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.

We're not going to just start getting scattered because President Trump was tweeting about kneeling football players and Colin Kaepernick. The best thing to do would be to ignore it, because, as we've said, Look, there's political stuff. And this is something that you can't win right and notice.

"Understand that persistence injustice go hand in hand, and so the more that these things are starting to happen I. Think the bigger pressure is building, and as you noted earlier. Where the owner of the current team owner Dan Snyder said he would. Never in all caps changed name, and here we are they. Now the of course has been sort of a front and center a lot of this. Since Colin Kaepernick began his campaign kneeling during the national anthem that was course created a national controversy and backlash and. To a lawsuit which he said he was blacklisted. It's fairly clear that he had been for his outspokenness. And now you've got years later. You've got Roger Goodell saying black lives matter on tape and then. And then announcing that the. Black, national anthem lift every voice and sing will be played before NFL game, and you had a great op. Ed basically a belt that about the sort of empty symbolism here. How did you? What was your reaction to Goodell 's announcement on that? Initial reaction was like. Who asked this? We? No one asks there things at the.

Excellence is steeped in the Harlem Renaissance, so just sat. That song was initially. came out. And it's like okay. You can't really use that to get invited to the cookout. That's not. GonNa Happen. There are other things you can do to get invited to cookout in the NFL has to reckon with its own policies and its own structure, organizational structure within the NFL ranks as far as the How little they have of African Americans in their executive positions head coaching positions, and so there is the pipeline for Young African. American coaches can get into that pipeline becoming office coordinator Defense Coordinator. Which is essentially the way that you become a head. Coach is through those positions so until that happens. You know we look at the NFL ass. And I honestly believe that they now I think they want the right thing. Since their players demanded a Chris, but we'll see how these things move forward in the players will continue to the man because I think they're starting now that I'm staying power they have. To that point I mean this is a strange time for a lot of reasons I'm. We're seeing this. Push for sports coming back amidst the pandemic, and you've got baseball and basketball and the bubble down in. Florida and there's talk about what the NFL season's GonNa. Look like I just wonder as a former player like how you would be thinking about the pressure to play under these conditions in your own, your own safety and amidst the pandemic. If you were if you were still playing. It's it's a little difficult to answer that question, but my general answer as If. I was younger player like some of these guys just got drafted out of college. Yes, I WANNA play. It's been my dream since I was child. If I'm older veteran guys got a family. Kids in you know a mother grandparents. You've already made your money. You're a little skeptical plane and putting yourself out there and. Personally I. Don't know if they'll finish a full NFL season I don't think we'll make it past week eight.

Which I believe FedEx was a part of which owns the naming rights right and they're worth hundreds of billions of dollars. They I guess they put the film on the shoulder and said You either do this because I think half of the ownership group what 40% of them also is part of this conglomerate. I mean, it's not just up to Snyder any anymore, and it wasn't like an activist group or I mean, the the times that we live in, definitely played into it.

Many players I think the estimate would be about seventy or eighty percent of the players across the league would shoes to wear them. To who will not. Lebron James. And, Anthony Davies. I guess somewhat surprising, given Lebron of taking very strong, very public stances, you know obviously not just in in in relation to racial justice and black lives, matter and You know he was really. You know a long time. You know how many years ago he was wearing. The I can't breathe. T shirt Eric Garner. All of these things are things that Lebron has been involved in his choosing not to wear. Any messaging on his back Anthony Davis isn't GONNA. do it either. how surprised I I guess. Should people be that? These guys are choosing not to participate in that particular expression. Well. I actually thought I wasn't surprised at all. Just because I know I went back to when the Colin Kaepernick I started kneeling, and I remember the question was will ball players, also neil and if Lebron Neil Guarantee, you allow basketball players would neil but. Most teams just kind held hands. In the national anthem I, I kinda dug in and know what what is that? What's The thinking on that? I think that was look kneeling was something that Colin Kaepernick found very meaningful and a lot of other NFL players found meaningful, but it it kind of Collins, thing and Lebron does his own thing. Lebron has his own ideas of how to protest on ideas of what is important in. Ask for him and. The guys literally doing more than a vote. That's a nationwide voter registration and voter group against voter suppression. That's a that's the kind of undertaking that takes months to put together, and you know I think if if the name on the back of his Jersey was something he found meaningful, and that it would be a big deal for him cool, but I think he's doing. He just does his own thing. Anthony Davis I suppose we I don't know him well enough to think his thought to explain his thought process, but generally this year has been taking a lot of his cues, Lebron rate they both got tattoos for Koby. They sort of operate. I think he listens to Lebrun a lot I think he's been. Mentor I. Guess at the right word by Lebron. So maybe that's his thinking on this, too, but just because everybody else is doing. It doesn't mean that you're rejecting it. It's you should feel like that's your thing. I mean. Did you kind of feel like that when? We were weeks ago when there was the the you're supposed to put a a black screen on your is the blackout day. I'M GONNA? Do it just because I thought about like well I'm just I feel like I'm following a trend as opposed to understanding why this is meaningful and. It's because it's performance. Are you telling? Are You doing that? I think most of the people doing that are doing it so. Maybe most is too strong. It's unfair to people whatever to map. People who do it do it, so they can be seen doing it. Not because you're like you say internalizing it or really understanding what's important for taking the time to think about things and it's like look. Here's a really simple. And, in some ways kind of meaningless, it costs me nothing as a person way to get out there and show that I'm down with the 'cause.

Nike Pulls Gear for the Washington Redskins Amid Calls to Change Name
"Gear from their store. Because it's offensive, but over the weekend how many people are offended by what Colin Kaepernick said. Colin Kaepernick over the weekend said that fourth of July is a white supremacist holiday. Now. There is a difference between a lot of the athletes right now that are standing up and talking about racism and what needs to be done. And what Colin Kaepernick did. I think Colin Kaepernick is a capitalist. I think he's selfish. I think it wasn't so much that he protested by kneeling. It was wearing the pig socks with cops. Pigs dressed as police officers to practice And now all of a sudden, in years past go look at his Twitter account. Go look at what's on Twitter about Colin Kaepernick and years passed wishing people happy Fourth of July all of a sudden issue. He's had an epiphany. And so Nike isn't pulling anything by Colin Kaepernick down because it's defending someone like me by calling it a white supremacist holiday, But they pulled the Redskins gear so it's arbitrary over what's really offensive and what isn't These are the arguments that we get caught up in instead of the really conversations about howto fix re Elish use And it's sad. It's absolutely sad.

A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports
"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!
Los Angeles Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn On Colin Kaepernick: ‘It Would Be Crazy To Not Have Him On Your Workout List’
"Colin Kaepernick is set to get a shot of a return to football Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn telling reporters the former San Francisco forty Niners quarterback is on his team summer workout list Lynn praising Kaepernick skills and saying he fits the style the Chargers wanted the position this coming after league commissioner Roger Goodell encourage teams to sign Kaepernick this week the thirty two year old hasn't played since twenty sixteen after he knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice and police
Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's, Rooted in Racist Imagery, to Change
"It's a seismic shift for a more than century old brand with a controversial history today, the Pepsico unit that sells aunt Jemima products, says it's dropping the name and image that's long been used on its pancake mixes and syrups because of its origins in racist imagery of black people also today the Mars Company said it would change its uncle Ben's brand and Conagra said it's putting its Mrs Butterworth's brand under review. They're just some of the companies that are reexamining their histories, products and messaging amid nationwide calls for racial justice and Equality. Joining me now to discuss how big brands are responding or Wall Street Journal, business columnist John Stole and reporter Jennifer Maloney. So, let's start with the big decision today from Pepsico to retire. Aunt Jemima products. This is a huge change. The brand dates back to the late eighteen hundreds Jennifer. What's changed the company's opinion on using the imagery and the name here? What did you hear from Pepsi? They say that in the wake of the killing of George Floyd they recognize that and Jemima's origins are based on racial stereotype, and that while they have made changes over the years to update the brand in a manner that they said was intended to be appropriate and respectful that they now realizes that those changes aren't enough just to look back at the history of this brand. It dates back to eighteen eighty nine. It was inspired by popular song called Old Aunt. My that was typically performed in minstrel shows by a white man. Man in black face, and the creators of the pancake brand hired a former enslaved woman named Nancy Green to be the spokeswoman. She made her debut at a world's fair in Chicago in eighteen ninety three singing in telling stories and making pancakes outside booth, designed to look like giant flour barrel, and the packaging has featured an image of a black woman. Originally, she wore a head scarf the over the years. That image has evolved in thousand, nineteen, hundred nine. The company updated the imagery and replaced the headscarf with Pearl earrings analyst caller. And this isn't the only brand that's acted in recent years or even recent weeks at this point to remove offensive stereotypes, but this moment really feels like something of a sea change in the way, companies are thinking about an also responding more immediately to calls for Racial Justice John. Do you see an increase in responsiveness on the part of major companies in this particular moment? I think the era that we're in right now is kind of. Let's turn over the most obvious things that we can do it. My mind went to completely different. People grew, but you think about the Washington Redskins for instance I? I mean for years. There's been complaints about anti-obama for years. There's been complaints about the Washington redskins and it takes a moment like this for a company to say okay. We need to do the obvious thing that is right by our consumers and our employees. You know you have to remember like it's not just the the consumers and the shelves at stores that the PepsiCo executives or executives at other companies are worried about. They're worried about. Their employees are workforces their stockholders. There's a lot of constituents here that they have to think about before making a move in any other direction and I think. We learned a couple years ago when Nike took a proactive move and canceled a shoe that Colin Kaepernick said would potentially be offensive to the black community. It really was a line in the sand. Where I think the company said. Let's err on the side of caution. It is interesting to see. Not just PepsiCo, but other brands thinking about everything from the way that they advertise market to the way that they speak internally to employees to whether they're not. They're going to sell or buy facial recognition that could potentially be disadvantageous to certain racists. The Big Litmus test for me is whether or not or companies stopped doing stupid stuff. I mean it's amazing. How many companies just put their foot in it over and over again on issues that most most Americans would say that just was not a good. Add to even think about. Our ad got leaked. oops, you're like. Wait a minute. Greenlighted the idea in the first place, so you know I you've seen. Companies create chief diversity officers, the board of directors getting involved there will be an extra layer scrutiny for quite some time on every brand in existence, and then on top of that all of the initiatives going forward. Yeah and to that point, Jennifer. It seems that we are seeing an uptick in companies that are responding more immediately. We also heard from the company behind the Uncle Ben's brand today. Right Mars which makes uncle. Ben's Rice told The Wall Street Journal that it will change its ankle brand. It doesn't know exactly how or when, but they say that they're evaluating all possibilities, and they have committed to making a change. We also saw. Saw earlier this year that land lakes dropped the indigenous woman Mia. It had long featured on its packaging. The company said that that was meant to better reflect its culture. She had first appeared in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight, and kneeling in sort of stereotypical clothing and clutching Orlando Container, so we're seeing some of these iconic brands that sort of have drawn on racial stereotypes, really doing some soul-searching right now, I mean. When the NFL. Reverses Course on activities that for a long time it tried to stand at standard arm's length from like kneeling during the national anthem, and now has reversed course as aggressively as they have. It shows the force of the moment that we are in, and it also shows I think finally a level of recognition that a big part of the employee base in the NFL or a big part of the consumer base at Pepsi are not just black. They're also empathetic and agreeing with. The social progress that has kind of being signalled with the demonstrations with the constant drumbeat of black lives, matter or whatever other people group. Legitimately marginalized or offended by age old practices. And how big of a role is the public pressure playing here I mean not just demonstrators and. who are out in the streets, but also pressure for these companies from within from their own employees we've seen employees feel more empowered, and and far more bold to say what they feel. And to get the discussion from a discussion to actual action, I mean I think I've done interviews for twenty years about discussions. We've got to have a discussion. We've got a dialogue. We've got to get this out into the public. Square and I think people are saying. Hey, enough is enough. It's like we gotta do something. It's like when people complain. After a mass shooting about thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers are great, but they're not going to bring back my son or they're not gonna change this happening again. We need action and I think employees are starting to say. You can put the statement out. You can put the tweet out. You can change the your your your twitter profile whatever you WanNa do for a day or two, but what are going to be the steps to lasting and meaningful change. The employees are definitely starting to feel that way. Yeah, it also seems like there's a much bigger call to action. Now I mean I've spoken to co workers and friends about all the messages were getting via email from companies. You wouldn't think would normally weigh in on issues of racial justice, but. It seems like this is a time where people are saying. Need more than just words, so is what we're seeing from big brands enough. Well, this is what big companies across the United States and beyond are grappling with right now. Their own workforce's are demanding significant structural change. And so you see companies sort of racing, not just to put out statements to supporting black lives matter movement, but. To introduce new initiatives policies in terms of hiring in terms of charitable, giving in terms of you know trying to promote people of color up through the ranks of the organization diversify their boards, and I think we're going to see more as the days and weeks progress, but we already have seen a number of announcements from companies to pledging. Actions and and trying to put money where their mouth is.

"And Fox sports radio producer. He will join us for that. If you missed the first hour of the show we did talk about. Athletes and their voices, and using their platform to voice things Brian. We know what's going on in Minneapolis, George Floyd the death. What a spark riots and And all of the. Stuff that we're dealing with currently and you know they've been stuff all over the country, different cities of broken out in riots and looting and fires and destroys destruction of police, property and cars. People frustrated mad about what's happened. and. I know a of people think. I don't want my athlete I. Just want him to play ball. I just wanted to hit home runs for me I. Want them to run the football. I just wanted to score twenty two points. And that's all I want for my athletes. I just don't think it's that simple. And I think when people say that. Even like the NFL. People say ell. It's only about four Paul early about football here. Brian No, can I remind you of a circumstance and I want you to tell me if it's Paul. or about social issues okay Okay Yep, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred eighty nfl took away the super bowl from the state of Arizona. Do you remember that Brian Yeah? And the reason they took away the super bowl and told Arizona that it wouldn't never get another super bowl. If they did not have the Martin. Luther King Holiday as a paid holiday. Do you remember that? Yeah, I do? Remember that was that football? Brian was `social. That was definitely not football it's. Wanting -ocial so the NFL win after even though the people of Arizona voted not for it to be. A paid holiday. Despite it being a national holiday, right? They decided that it wasn't. And the NFL when against the vote of the people of that state. And threatened them without a super bowl. Guess what happened, Brian No. Things Change Real quick! Wow, the next time. who was on the ballot I guess he got changed, and then they got the super bowl back. What a shocker! And my point bringing up that story is there is a moral obligation sometimes from people who have a platform who can help. Change. Wrong to right. Out of what the athletes go stumping for every. Politician and every Senate, race and every. The. Any any kind of a situation where where it's. Pitting candidates against each other. But in big moments where things can be changed, and you could have a positive impact on people. I salute those people. Yeah, that's that's why I have more respect. For Colin capper today than ever before four years ago. He was willing to give up his fame his fortune, his job and career, and the NFL to say what was going on was not right, and he could sit silent. Brian most people can't do that. Most people aren't leaders enough. Most people can't keep can't sacrifice especially for people that they have no connection to Colin Kaepernick did not those victims, those unarmed black men who were being killed by police? He did it because he thought it wasn't right. and. He wanted to bring attention to it in a peaceful way. All the people who condemned to were wrong. You know why. Four years later. We saw the death the murder of George Floyd. The same thing Colin Kaepernick was protesting about. Indeed athletes who have a platform. And can help cause change in a positive way. Should use that platform I. Hear you man and really think about it this way to. If you look at a guy like Joe. Borough number one overall pick in the NFL draft. If, he's speaking out and saying the black community needs us right now, right? I don't know how you don't have any opinion whatsoever as a prominent black athlete. When it comes to a situation like George Floyd being killed right like the way you set this up initially, if a media member sticks a mic in front of a player's face, and says hey, what do you think about? The the situation with George Floyd. If that person says you know what I just want to keep it about football, right like that's just never going to land well. You don't have to be an activist to the nth degree in. Ten lives is there's nothing but activism. It doesn't have to go to the nth degree like that, but if difficult, if there are white athletes like J. J. Watt Joe Bro Speaking Out I. Think is a prominent black athlete. He would least have to offer your two cents instead of saying hey too hot button. I can't touch that it goes way than just football and you know what you just said it like. Hot Pardon you just saw a guy murdered by the police or Armed. In handcuffs it comes pin. Yeah, what? What? What? What? What is controversial? What can't you speak on? Brian, tell me. You saw that in. Oh, I can't talk about that yet. But what? How could you not have an opinion on that? It was horrifying. Anybody who saw. How did you watch that? And not think it was horrifying. Yeah, and I think you can say that and have a reasonable stance and speak out against injustice and not tick off a ton of people right. If you say that was inhumane, it was incomprehensible what happened to George Floyd. That can't be the country that we live in. If that offends people I. Don't know what to tell you because that's the truth. You're offended by the truth at that stage. So if there's a prominent athlete that has a platform that says just that I don't know why you would. Say A little too hot I don't WanNa get near that. I just think that's wrong to do. So and Brian said this my whole life. The, only people worse. Than the people, committing crimes and hurting people and killing and maiming and Robin all that. All the good people who know right from wrong who turned the other way? And and don't do anything about. Yeah. Those, are the people who how can you do it? How can you allow yourself to turn a blind eye to it? Even if it's not happening to anybody, you know or your family Bryan that doesn't have to be your cousin or your uncle or your father there to have compassion for that man, does it? I wanted to pick your brain real. Quick Rob, because I think this is important. When you think about what happened to George, Floyd and for someone who isn't black to have an understanding of not only what that feels like, but also the aftermath we Ephraim from Salaam on the show, and he explained it. He's like I've got a couple of young boys I'm thinking. Could this be something that they encounter later in life right and he also brought up when you've got people with guns outside of. State buildings upset that they can't go out in public, but we don't have the same thing. After the George Floyd incident it sends the message that either people don't care enough or they flat out. Don't care at all, so. When it comes to those things as you receive it a member of your race, and it just seems like people either don't care or don't care enough. How does that make you feel and I think it's important for people that aren't black to understand what that feeling is like. No, no doubt about it This is just an important issue for a lot of people. And I I I think people have to I really. I don't understand. Bryan as as a black guy who's been stopped by the police. It's a terrifying experience because and I've told you this before Brian earlier in the show. I have cousins family member to New York City cops detectives law enforcement's in my family. My brother was in Atlanta Cop. He's an FBI agent. So this is not an anti cop. Thing, okay? 'cause I not a good cop state there in my family. But, there are bad cops to. And when you're on that, brody and there's nobody else there Bryan. And you get pulled over terrifying. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't. They don't have a masters degree from Columbia. They don't have a national radio show on Fox sports radio. They don't know pal was skipping. Shannon that fest one. A column for Deadspin..

"His name is e. from Salaam guests here. On the couple of course, a former NFL Bet Fox sports radio weekend. Hosts e from. From this earlier and was, we started the show I talked about Colin. Captured and I just talked about this is what he was talking about. This was the injustice that he had seen when he decided, he was going to put his football career in jeopardy. Do whatever he had to give up the money. Give up the fame up football. Whatever was to bring light to this here. It is forty years later. And the people who condemned him trying to tell them when you suppose the protests and how you supposed to protest. This was what he was talking about. It hasn't stopped. Where is the NFL now? We're both people. Who thought that Cowan Copper, Colin Kaepernick was being American. Yes, right I see. This is what I'm talking about. All the people who said he shouldn't project like that right? Why those? Nothing to do with the sports yeah. This is the reason. He's protesting on that stage because this has been an epidemic in this country for us. For. Decades upon decades, and that is the problem. If Colin Kaepernick doesn't sacrifice his career to bring awareness, it doesn't stink as much as it does today. Point Hoping. That's exactly the point, so I've always said look. You can't tell a person how to. Right right, you can't say Oh, do it a different way because protests is supposed to make you uncomfortable to sign a light on something that needs to be addressed, it's like. When you when you blocked the fall five. Were you get their attention? Will people figure out what's going on here? What's how? Oh yes. When you disrupt normal life in in the flow of mice with pain, and and and and protests, people have to pay attention right. The world has to pay attention. They arrested his man so fast. They understand it. It's already lit. The product is lit. Can't put out match. What are you going to do now? What are we doing now? Is this GONNA. Be another case where the officer. Feared for his life or whatever they want to spend and look I'm not anti police. I'm not anti police. I know you're not anti police rob. Your whole family is in law enforcement. Agent I know I know and and and when I'm speaking I don't want people to think of anti police because I believe we need relief. But. Police also need to be policed. Right, where are the people supposed to police them? Those are people who have been letting us down because hey, if you take five. You can pick them five random. Killings of unarmed African Americans over the past two years. If those penalties for those officers were headed down, and they were served Veer Yup. This would change the mentality. That's the problem. Hey, from one last question, I want to jump in here. What about God's we know?.

Feared for his life or whatever they want to spend and look I'm not anti police. I'm not anti police. I know you're not anti police rob. Your whole family is in law enforcement. Agent I know I know and and and when I'm speaking I don't want people to think of anti police because I believe we need relief. But. Police also need to be policed. Right, where are the people supposed to police them? Those are people who have been letting us down because hey, if you take five. You can pick them five random. Killings of unarmed African Americans over the past two years. If those penalties for those officers were headed down, and they were served Veer Yup. This would change the mentality. That's the problem. Hey, from one last question, I want to jump in here. What about God's we know?.

"I'm just in charity. I'm Kate. Nab is welcome to control of channel thirty three net for a pipe past where we aquit upsets excites and divide. Ocular. Gawkers coming back from the dead sort of care plans to bring back a controversial website and these plans are questionable at best, but I, I'll. Apper Nick Knight. Definitely not our pension. We're going to talk about bonzes to the ad. We're going to talk about that. So we're going to figure out what it all. Nike recently made the civil rights activists and NFL player. I should say inactive NFL player Colin Kaepernick the face of it's just do it campaign just do it is the conic Nike tagline conic Nike campaign. And this year happens to be the thirtieth anniversary of just do it campaign. So the tagline for happenings, believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything at the tagline. An image ad in the video at the TV commercial that copper Nick stars in and a lot of people around up a lot of people who I mean, first of all, I should say the ad is encouraging to a lot of people who stand with cabinet in who stood with him throughout his police brutality protests, kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games. You know, it's, it's encouraged a lot of people. It's also irritated. A lot of people who wished that Colin Kaepernick would just shut up in play football or not even play football at this point needs in and you basically have a lot of conservatives across the country setting their Nike apparel on fire and. A guy who set his shoes on fire while marrying was not a good why he didn't just I should say shutout to that one guy who said his shoes on fire while wearing them and then did in fact share images of his feet at hospital skin peeled off in jarred. So that's where we're at right now. Makinen Colin Kaepernick and the protests and it's it's sort of getting out of control. Now the, there's a mayor in Louisiana who banned Nike heat Unilab read on this story a little bit. I know that he banned local facilities from buying Nike equipment because he was angry about the ad. Right? I do believe there is also a store in Denver that sort of decided to sell its Nike equipment at a discount because they were mad about that. There's been a lot of get on clearance sales. There's a lot of really weird protests of of the at. Right? And this is all because copper Nic, you know, is the figurehead for these the the protests that NFL games during the national anthem of players, kneeling as a statement about police brutality right says this, this iconic posts black lives matter form of. Tests. So why people are letting their shoes on fire. I don't really functionally have trouble understanding with this. I should say, sports fans have done this before, and then in more trivial contest. Remember they burn bronze, jersey NFL, like people accidentally set themselves on fire during that. But that was like a less political. I'm not gonna lie to you. I distinctly remember during like the bulls dynasty in the nineties. My mom got all these like Seattle SuperSonics apparel, and we stuff we like built an SuperSonics effigy and lit it on fire that had nothing to do with politics. We just hated the sandals. So why people have definitely been burning athletic equipment for dubious reasons for a long time, like I can personally attest to that. While burning it to oppose a protest. Movement against police brutality is certainly a height of burning athletic apparel Coulter. I think those people are gonna have to replace their Nike humanity. Yes, but it it, you know, coincidentally Nikki's online sales, at least sales in their web store up like thirty one percent since they unveiled the ad with cabernet, we'll unveiled the whole campaign happening, but meanwhile have is seemingly blacklisted by the NFL. That's sort of what makes this complicated to me rate is tapper. Nick is out of work basically. And so Nike has come along and said, well, you know, we gotta just do it campaign. We gotta run. You can be the star of that, and we're obviously going to pay pay millions of dollars to be the starring role in this. This advertisement campaign. And so in a way it's like tap has..

"Went to a mastermind meeting yesterday. Now, standard mastermind wasn't with a group of people that already knew. It was an invite only meet up with some handpicked people a made the cut. So I showed up. The topic was list building. We broke off into small groups, did more of a typical mastermind in those small groups met a lot of great people there. And something that I heard from more than a few of them was that they were worried about saying something bold. I think one of the reasons for that could have been just the age of this thing. A lot of people in their twenties in their thirties. I'm forty five years old. Second. Oldest person there. This was a younger crowd, but still even if you're in your forties and fifties and your sixty seventies, this is something that follows people around, and if you don't start getting used to it now where you are right now in your life is not likely to change, you have to make change the way that this presents itself is that you think something and your frayed you're going to get a reaction that's not going to be positive. So because of that, a lot of people put on the brakes to what they really want to say. Just this week as an example, an anonymous op Ed in the New York Times, it was bold, but it was an onerous that doesn't have the same weight is when you put your name behind something last episode of talked about Colin Kaepernick, Nike very bold ad featuring Colin Kaepernick. Their name was on it. His name was on it. Lot of backlash on Twitter, but results matter, and here's what the results are. This is an article from time despite the back. Clash in the wake of Nikes endorsement of Colin Kaepernick the sports where companies reported a thirty one percent increase in sales.

"colin kaepernick" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"I got all that. That's all happened and we completely. And I'm trying to just saying for him to give any quarter to Colin Kaepernick here shows that I think Colin is winning words or whatever, whatever. I'm just saying that we haven't ever gotten any kind of moderate statement like that from him whatsoever. Skew on this issue. Have we the mecha- question if I tell you I'm gonna do something for you, and I never do it. What? What? What? What? What? What good. On my words, why did the NFL issue that that's, that's that's shocking. I'm surprised by how fitting why pay to him in a very positive light when they haven't done that. Normally, when you hear Colin Kaepernick is about the protests about the anthem is about the military, nine ING. I will give you that Wallace winning, but here's the winning over Tom Brady. I don't know why would Tongo out of his way to like four things that are Nike connected. I don't know, maybe not. I mean, you're dug in on their side. I just don't. I just don't know how much to do from. Like I'm not political like you are. So I'm, I'm more I'm more from a distance about this and what hit me yesterday was g. this is kind of a moderate reaction as opposed to a visceral ugly anti rea- there is still that Al they're burning thing. Right, definitely. That's where I'm going there. Still some of that out there. They're still and you're going to get get. Everybody's gonna be happy, especially when you're fighting for something that you deem appropriate. They're always going to be pushed back because those that are impacted by this, what what's going on. Okay. Why would you wanna do that? And and so you're going to get the pushback from there. The surprising part for me of all this of the reaction is, like I said with what the NFL said, because we hadn't seen anything like different from them skip in this painting Colin Kaepernick and very. So I am. I'm happy that the league that I've represented fourteen years playing and not cover the league. Like to think I'm still a Representative of that league. I'm very proud because the collusion case hasn't even begun yet, really. That's why I'm even more surprised that they would even chime in on this maybe night. Maybe Nike being big sponsor of theirs get because look, the NFL has a lot of sponsors, but Nike is the only one that when you watch that team on the field, usually you see that logo? Yeah, Pizza Hut is official sponsor the NFL and people that logo on jersey, no decals on the helmet. So if this I mean how everybody's looking like, well, why would I do this? We gotta ten your deal. We know in Philly. What we know about the NFL's give ain't giving back no money, no, but it was also widely reported yesterday that Nike gave the NFL no heads up on any of this. So that was good news to me that, hey, they opt, they operated completely independently of the NFL and said, we are going to do this whether you like it or not. Because what would happen if. Didn't runabout NFL. What would have happened to you? Probably more times than not. They shot it now. Sure. But it shows you, they're not incoherence with the this isn't some clandestine partnership that they're trying to pull. We'll well, maybe this is why they did the deal in March and had this on this all along because I'm sure they've done run the marketing data. Okay. Started as you saying a mauling towards Colin Cami, because if you remember getting Nike will be one of the first official apparel outfitters the NFL. But what they were doing, they were doing independent deals, the NFL got upset when that was guess what they did, they gave the whole thing. Yeah. So the NFL doesn't take into you doing things without their permission, so, but they got ten years. 'cause you say this, this contract between Nike and the NFL run through twenty. Twenty eight? Yeah, they got another ten years. They good. So right away early yesterday morning, Nike stock to a hit and soda Dita's and soda, Puma. Although it was reported that they had gone to the bargaining table to try to sign calling also..

Actually, I'm wearing. You're wearing also wearing? No, that's a fake news. Actually. We live in a post Trump America where not everything is the way that it appears, and these are not actually easies with Swoosh on front of them because I don't want people think I'm super cool.

So my point is that like you don't go where the shoes just burn them and buy them. All right. When we didn't start the fire. Okay, I'll explain this. So Colin Kaepernick is the football player that would kneel during the national anthem. Right, right. So a lot of people in the middle of the country vary offended about that. People who have families that are veterans or whatever very offended about as well. Right. Some people are not not. Everyone is thinks the same. But then Nike decided to sponsor him which just lit the firestorm of all over again. So everyone who I'm sorry. Sorry about that guys. That's my way of kneeling during the national anthem a- sneezing on the podcast. So everyone was upset about it and people forgot about it, and then Nike decided to sponsor him. So it just looked the whole firestorm up again. So people responded to it by lighting, all of their Nike gear on fire as a way of protesting company for sponsor here. I mean, I just want people to get more creative iron, how to destroy their stuff, you know, like, yeah, it's always a fire, isn't it? Yeah. When are we going to drown our Nike's? Exactly right, or throw them in one of those. Like, you know, there's a YouTube account where it's like, Kim, we shit, yes, smush it Bush or like put him in the washer and put them in the dryer. Yeah, put him in the dryer and then push the dryer down a cliff. I've been destroying my Nikes by just wearing them every day for the last year..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Did it took about two days and I was wrong on that one. Where Colin was. Right. Okay. Forget Colin Kaepernick gear. I'm gonna buy Malcolm Jenkins gear for the eagles. He's become my favorite player. I said last week, Malcolm Jenkins came out and said this whole thing in our locker room. This this like a banner on our locker room is stupid. We won the Super Bowl. We got win, and again this year, that doesn't mean anything. And I said, I love Malcolm Jenkins. That's how winners think winner celebrate rarely and grind daily and Malcolm Jenkins by coming out as a leader in saying, I hate this stupid banner. Doug Peterson, took it down. I am buying Malcolm Jenkins shoes if they're on the market. That's what leadership is leadership is not like. Due side, big pliant pod. Say leadership is a signed a big client, the accounting firm, everybody going to be here at five, forty five in the morning, ready to work tomorrow because that trophy is not doing your prep tomorrow morning. Malcolm Jenkins is a real leader. I liked him during the anthem protests. I didn't think he was divisive. I thought he was grown up and I love him calling out his organization and they're smart enough and build Elvia to go. You know what Malcolm jangled is right, where Colin was raw Odell Beckham junior, got a massive deal with the giants. I'm surprised a, he's a perimeter player. But here's what really surprises me. He's fragile physically, and sometimes he's fragile emotionally, and I've always struggled pan guys. If physically and emotionally, I'm not sure what I get, but Bucky Brooks guy respect told me last week on the show. He's were six points to me. Odal Beckham's were six Advil for all the headaches all have with him. But in the end, if he's worth six points than I admit, I was wrong. Odell Beckham is worth the dollars and the New York Giants. I thought they figure out a way not to Pam figured out a way to pay him where Colin was right finally said last week, once Sam darnold proves he's good enough to start. You gotta move teddy Bridgewater. There's the jets don't need the best backup quarterback in the league, what they need help in about a day later, the jets traded teddy Bridgewater is that once you could see that darnold was ready to play again, I'm not saying he's better than teddy Bridgewater today, but he's good enough to start in the NF. Fell. Sam darnold would start for about ten teams in the NFL including the jets. Okay. He's not starting for land is desktop for New Orleans. He's not start for Carolina, but he's got enough start for the jets. Then you've got to trade teddy Bridgewater. There's no value in saying, you know, we got the best quarterback threesome in the league. I mean, we got three guys who could win. Darnold can win without defense, Josh mccown, going with that defense, get a draft pick and start rebuilding that offensive line. We're calling was right. We're calling was wrong. And with that, I think actually Joel Klatten I have been defending Jim Harbaugh, but tough one today for me. Let's see how Joel Klatt response to that. Well, you said, are you doing. You said he has to beat Notre Dame? Yeah. Well, isn't Well isn't it. when you're in this business. Sometimes you're going to take some lumps and we're taking lumps today taking lumps. One hundred percent. I'm right there with you. It was ugly. It was ugly, and and the frustrating part for those of us who have been watching his teams for a long time is that they didn't have an identity on offense. Normally, that's one thing that you would hang your hat on is that they had an identity on offense. And generally it was surrounding quality, offensive line play, and maybe not even just quality, offensive line, but dominant offensive line play. In particular in the run game, you gave the stat a little bit earlier in your where you were wrong. One point, seven, six at one point, eight yards per carry. That's terrible. Terrible. In fact, only one other power, five school average less yards per carry last week. Oh my God. I know who it was, who Louisville against Alabama..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on Build A Big Podcast - Marketing Podcast For Podcasters
"Talk about this Nike ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick. It's a black and white close up of his face. The bottom of the ad says, believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything. Lots of talk online about this. Lots of talking newspapers, television, radio, mostly people taking one side of the argument or the other. I want to talk about how it relates to your podcast. We'll give you similarly the situation to bring you up to speed. The headline from article I just found on CNBC says, nyc shares fall as backlash erupts over new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick here the bullet points. Next shares fall Tuesday after company revealed in new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick the news of capper Nick becoming the face of Nike's marketing campaigns, sparks some backlash from consumers on social media. And the reason for that is in two thousand sixteen, he decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest. Racial injustice, hashtag Nike boycott is trended on Twitter with some people saying they were going to burn their Nike sneakers. Now, what does this have to do with podcasting? Let's look back to that. Initial protests. He decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice. That's my understanding of why he did that. That's what he has said. Yet. People wanna make it something different. It's about the flag. It's about disrespecting veterans. You've heard those arguments that's big lesson. Number one people are going to miss understand your message. You can be crystal clear about it. You can spell it out. You can put it in writing. You can say, this is what I'm trying to do. People are gonna put their own spin on it. Knowing this you've got three options. You can put the message out anyway, speak your truth. You can soften the message, try to make it a little bit more palatable, so it doesn't have that kind of backlash, three don't say anything. That's what most people do. Everybody's got an opinion. They lived a spouted on social media. They love to remain anonymous, talk about it in their homes. But when it comes to a podcast, how many people are actually saying anything, not many. Big, listen, number two do not. She's in that first option. Speak your truth. What's the point? What's the point? Let's say you've got a religious broadcast a Christian podcast. You're Christian, you believe in Jesus. Are you going to say you believe in Jesus? Are you gonna talk about a higher power, soften that message, make it a little bit more palatable. Bring people in who may be are offended by Jesus. What are you going to do? Higher power is not going to connect Christians and if you're Christian, that's not your belief anyway. Now I could give you a million examples of this, but I'm not here to give you examples. I'm here to have you think about your message. What is your message? I'm here to let you know that it is okay for you to repel people. That's big lesson number three here just as many people love Nike today as eight them maybe more. When some people saw that ad. This man, Nike gets me, Nike gets what this guy's trying to do. He gets how I feel and they love Nike even more. Was it risky? Hell? Yeah, it was risky. Anything worth doing is risky. You're gonna put your voice to a podcast, put it out into the world. Once it's out, it's out. You don't know who's going to hear it. Maybe some people going to hear it that you don't want to hear. That's a risk. Some people are going to disagree with you. Some people are going to leave you bad reviews. Some people are going to send you a non emails. It happens even at a small level, your podcast go into podcasting, Facebook group, people get into arguments over the dumbest things. Now that Mike sucks. Don't use that. Mike. It sucks. Who cares? The right? Mike is the one that you got in front of you the right Mike is the one that enables you get your podcast out, who cares about microphones you people get into arguments about them. So imagine when he gets into something important, something that really matters, big social issue, something like injustice, police brutality, health care war people are opinionated about those things. And if you talk about any of those things, you're going to get backlash that Christian podcast that I mentioned. I see this happen all the time with Christian authors. They are in a hard place. You think you got a bad magin being a Christian author get Christians on top of Christians. Now it's not Jesus enough. He didn't praise God in the way I wanna praise God. You got the eighth yeast in there. This is to Christian too much Jesus. You can't please anybody. You got to please yourself. You fly your flag. That's what Nike's doing. We'll pay off. We'll see too early to tell today, their stock dropped a little bit, but now he's been around for a long time. Thirty years of the just do a campaign that's his call and cabinet campaign is about. He's not the only athlete involved in this new campaign. Just the guy getting the most press right now from a business standpoint, I think it was brilliant. What did indeed is due today? It's too late for them to make a bold move like this. They look like followers same thing for your podcast or you're going to lead or are you going to follow? We all want listeners. We all want the people to love what we have to say before people want to lead do you. You need to act like it. That means taking. Stand. Are you gonna repel some people? Yes. Hell, yes, you're going to repel some people, but some people are going to love you even more the Nike Swoosh it means something different today. And while there are few people that are burning their Nike stuff, making a big deal about it. There are other people that are going out to the mall to stores like Amazon by Nike stuff, and they're going to wear it in a totally different way. This is a long game just like your long game. We're not going to be thinking about the stock dropping for a couple of days if you years from. Now, we're going to be thinking about who took a stand on this issue and maybe they lost money, but it's a big company they can afford to lose money. You can afford to lose a few listeners by speaking your truth and keeping the listeners that are really into you and making them true fans speak your truth and focus on those people.
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"There is a little bit of butterfly effect here to Colin Kaepernick. He his girlfriend who. Was in northern California if he takes the job with the Denver Broncos and he wins the job as their starting quarterback and whatever you think of Denver and legalization in Colorado of marijuana and what an inverse different than suburban Denver's very conservative in John Elway is super-conservative. I believe he wrote support for for the president on Denver, Broncos stationery, right. So there's probably a little bit of hint of that, but but my thing with the butterfly effect is you do wonder if capper Nick would have taken. The stance would have been power to take the stance if they would have shut it down, they would talk with him early or even he would have been as politically active if he was out of northern California and playing for the Denver Broncos fighting for a starting job. Right? You have no idea. And if that he had not taken any reporter hadn't asked him a question about taking any, where would it be? There's a certain interest in like the whole butterfly effect to it is fascinating to me. Totally. I mean, who am I to say this? But I feel like he is found. This other calling in his life. I mean, I'm sure he wants to be back playing NFL. There's no doubt about that, but he's the voice of so many. He's standing up for so many people right now and. Actually that's more doesn't. Actually. He doesn't actually say I'm not disputing the level of importance that somebody in have he's found another calling in his life. Maybe it wasn't always to be an NFL player, but it's supposed to be, you know, a social Justice warrior, whatever you wanna call it. Right. I just I do think that one thing that that that Elway touches on but doesn't go all in on his. There's more than just the protests people forget that one of the reasons he lost his job when he's with the Niners was he had the headphones on, and he was not seen to be a leader that guys liked there was the struggles in evolving as a quarterback. There was the fact that he knew he was going to get cut by the Niners because salary and he was offered a parachute, albeit with less money with the Denver Broncos there are there are other things can ask you one thing, though, horse. Do you think that if the kneeling didn't happen, the protests didn't happen that he would still not be laying in the NFL. Because I think that well, well, hold on. There's the assumption. We talked about this little yesterday where people think that backup quarterbacks are simply he's better than backup quarterbacks. And that's why he should be playing STAN. Actually, the way it works. A backup quarterback. One usually usually is a lesser version, like a pocket version of the starting quarterback. Right. So you don't wanna have to dramatically change the system. He's not like most guys. On the other hand, you could see him replacing Shawn Watson numbers as his backup other athletic quarterbacks, but but he's never. His mindset has never been to accept where how the market sees him. He doesn't see himself as a backup. The Seattle Seahawks brought him in last year. Instead, he sees himself as a starter and we see him as the starter to. We just don't need a starting quarterback. Like I don't think his mindset matches the salary matches what the job actually entails. If you're a sales manager, like I'm a salesman like now this is for a salesman job. It's. It's different. He gotta get out there and get the connection. So I don't think people forget his. The peak of of cabinet was two thousand thirteen. He's had multiple surgeries. He's not the same player. This is part of it. I'm not disputing that. This is part of why he's not in league, but there are other factors could have done himself some favors by maybe not fighting for that starting role. Which one with Seattle Seahawks or with Denver, he's not going to beat you're coming into Seattle. You're not going to be starting corporate that Russell Wilson's want to start with. He's a starter period stop. So I would guess that in the conversation that he had, he didn't get off the plane.
