It ruins my day to read something like this.

Don't let it.

The market will respond accordingly.

On a separate note, wouldn't it be REALLY REALLY COOL to give out Rifleman patches that look like that for next year's Patriot Day event?

I would have bought a pair! They look really cool.

Won't be buying anything NIKE any time soon.

I've never worn the swooshstika.
One more reason to avoid it.

I haven't bought a pair of Nike anything since Kap's antics.  That wasn't easy for me, because I've been a huge Nike fan since I was a kid.  I always had at least a couple pairs, plus running/workout clothes. 

They might've been able to win me back, but that seals it.

On the bright side, Brooks makes better running shoes, and they're not afraid to honor Old Glory.

And I'd LOVE a patch like you're describing.

Friends,

Discussion about potential new patches is fine, unfortunately this thread contains modern politics (icebergs) and violations of Intellectual Property.

If you want to mock up a design of something and send it to one of the AOC members, we’re happy to look at it. However, we must protect our trademarked items.

Please please... I don't want to lock someone's thead.

Thanks for the caution Maximum...  I knew this was close to the line when I posted it.

It just hits so close to home.  It really took my breath away to read that. 

I take the blame for this thread coming so close to the line of politics... if not crossing it...
