The spot aired during the first ad break in the third quarter of the Eagles-Falcons game on Thursday night.

Colin Kaepernick's polarizing Nike ad has gotten plenty of mixed opinions, once again re-igniting the flames of the discussion around NFL players' rights to kneel during the national anthem.

The news generated plenty of online buzz, with social engagement around Nike and Kaepernick rising sharply this week, according to 4C Insights, a marketing technology company.

Brady, who always stays away from political issues, evaded the media's questions about the ad Friday during his press conference at Gillette Stadium. "But if it's really how the leadership of the company feels and they're attacking law enforcement and military folks on goal and then why deal with them when there's plenty of others out there".

Kaepernick caused controversy in 2016 for kneeling during the American national anthem before matches. "It's not about protesting the national anthem, and we're bringing light to that".

"I can't say I'm not going to buy their stuff, but I think that's just a sales pitch too for the wrong cause too", said resident Lance Marshall. "I just feel in the grand scheme of things, there are far bigger issues in this country, in this world".
