Controversy over Nike deal for Cornell athletics

Although Cornell is ending its deal with Nike to sell Cornell apparel, the athletic department will continue to have the Big Red athletes garbed in Nike apparel for at least another three years.

Why did athletics keep its relation with Nike, while the University broke the ties based on University policy? Was it because the athletic contract ran for 3 more years? Or was this another "wise" Andy Noel decision? Or was there another reason?

Daily Sun says it was the contract. Note the Sun is now doing coverage of major stories during the summer and exam periods.

And now in hindsight, it looks as if Cornell, in terminating the Nike contract last year, supports the (US) President and field-size flags over Colin Kaepernick?

Although see the white headgear on the 2018 team photo: a half-dozen Nike swooshes.

I always knew there were a few right-wingers at Cornell, but I didn't know that they had finally found a way to get to the future.

It's great news, since licensing that should allow them to have free tuition for all.

I thought of Bureau of Land Management, too.

I wonder what kind of dirty looks I'll get Saturday when I don't stand for the anthem.

Delaware is Pennsylvania without the sophistication.

I'm sure you'll be fine.

It's not about disrespecting the military. It's about brutality by Cornell police and (what is the correct term?) Cornell meter maids.

What will Delaware do: Bring out the smallest flag in fitting with the First State's geographic size, then there'll be a V-formation flyover by four bankruptcy lawyer Gulfstreams with an empty spot in the formation in honor of fallen GS hero Anthony Scaramucci. The band will play Minnie the Moocher.

See y'all there. And Homecoming for sure.

So you're saying "Red lives matter?" bolt

I got no comments or dirty looks at all. And that includes by the friend I went with who was a lifetime army guy (Cornell ROTC and 25 years in the reserves including some time in Desert Storm).

And when they do the "Let's honor an American hero" shtick, I usually sit on my hands for that, too. I'm not big on forced displays of patriotism. But the guy they honored yesterday (Bronze Star, wounded in Afghanistan, Purple Heart)...I stood for him.

I've actually thought about that, but decided sitting was the right choice. FTR, I couldn't take a knee. No space in the bleachers.

So please tell of a time when you witnessed police brutality by a member of the Cornell University Police department ? What a load of shit to be spouting off on that particular issue.

Cop at Lynah;

Speaking for myself, my stand (or sit, as it were) has nothing to do with Cornell or the CUPD. My stand is simply pro-BLM, pro-Kaepernick, and anti-Trump.

Knowing Bill and the often tongue-in-cheek tone on this Forum, I took his comments as a joke. And as is often the case here, I re-joked.

My comment was written with the Monotype Sarcasmus font. It doesn't show up on some PCs or phones. Campus police have a lot of sensitivities to deal with such as what do you do when a boisterous crowd in Statler doesn't like a speaker and wants to shout him/her off the stage. Or cops in the UCal system caught in the middle when Palestinian students march in hopes of defending Jewish organization because because being Jewish (I think I have this right) is a form of racism when there also Muslim students on campus. Or how about Smith College, where the police had to check out a report of a person tresspassing in a dorm and possibly being dangerous. How'd the caller know of the danger? Because the person lying a first floor couch late at night is black and there are no black women in that dorm.

Me, I have a lot of respect for police work. I am mystified when the most dangerous cities to be a municipal policeman pay the worst (Camden, Trenton, Newark in NJ) but in zero (violent) crime towns a patrolman might start at close to $90K. Plus OT. If you were on the Cornell PD in the 1970s when somebody took a nice crease out of another car's fender leaving Lynah and I called in the plate number because it was the right thing to do.

A. "That isn't funny."
