The college's president - Jerry Davis - spoke out against Nike and the company's decision to include Kaepernick in its advertising.

Rovell notes that Kaepernick originally signed with Nike in 2011 and he has remained on their roster since, despite being out of the National Football League and not appearing in any campaigns over the last two years.

Caner knows that the decision by Truett McConnell University, a university with an enrollment of about 2,600 students, probably won't matter at all to Nike.

"For Nike to then hire Colin Kaepernick", Caner said, "a person known for wearing pigs on his socks, mocking law enforcement, kneeling against our flag, and mocking our troops, is reprehensible to my family and to the Truett McConnell family".

"The Rev. Mack Morris took a hold of an old Nike headband and a wristband, held them both up before a packed church, and cut them", AL.com reports.

"If Nike chooses to apologize to our troops and to our law enforcement officers, then - and only then - will TMU reconsider their brand", President Caner said in a statment.

The campaign was launched over the Labour Day weekend in the US. They are the true heroes.

On Sept. 3, Nike unveiled its ad campaign featuring Kaepernick, who became the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

Edison said the performance from Sunday 2 September to 4 September - which included the Labor Day bank holiday Monday - was better than the same period a year ago when online sales grew 17%. The team will switch to Adidas uniforms.
