The Morning Rant

"So the geniuses at Nike have trotted out a new ad campaign featuring an a unemployed quarterback that no NFL team would touch with the slogan, quote, Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything, unquote. Now this is a bit of ex post facto switcheroo because it is doubtful that Kaepernick thought he would be unemployed because of his virtue signaling, and maybe he wouldn't be if his stats weren't so mediocre, but my question to the Nike marketing execs is, not to put too fine a point on it, are you all high?? Did they not notice the NFL TV ratings going into the crapper when that flaming idiot Goodell started egging on all the kneeling BS? And did they not notice the ESPN ratings tanking hard when they decided to remake themselves into MSNBC with the occasional sports news thrown in? Nike has never heard 'get woke, go broke'? If they wanted to show heroic sacrifice from a sports star, why didn't they use someone like Pat Tillman? Or others who have raised millions of dollars for various charities? Oh no, not that. Better to build an entire ad campaign around a washed-up crybaby who has done nothing except make a scene during pre-game ceremonies and alienate half of your potential audience. But they did get an endorsement from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and *that's* something they can be proud of. Many years from now, marketing textbooks are going to have chapters devoted to how these companies bankrupted themselves with these idiotic suicide pacts just to please a tiny minority of screaming nimcompoops who don't use their products, anyway.
