Nike removes all Washington gear from website

Getty Images

Nike has yet to issue the kind of statement that FedEx did regarding the name of the Washington team. The NFL’s official apparel provider has adopted a different approach.

At Nike.com, there’s no sign of any merchandise bearing the name or logo of the Washington franchise.

There’s more: The vertical drop-down menu on the left side of the site that comes up when searching for gear for any of the other NFL teams completely omits the Washington franchise.

Last year, Nike omitted the team name from its annual Salute to Service collection. The more recent action sends a much stronger message.

Still, Nike should eliminate any ambiguity and issue a statement on the issue, confirming that it has removed the gear, explaining the move, and joining FedEx in asking the team to change its name.

  1. You left wingers are nuts. If you don’t like something don’t support it. Simple as that. Just cuz a few are offended don’t make the rest of the world suffer

  2. So if 9 out of 10 native Americans don’t find the name offensive where is this coming from?

  3. Nike has every right to remove Redskins gear if they want, assuming they are not violating their contract with the NFL.

    It would be great Irony if the Redskins partnered with one of the reservations to produce Redskins’ products!

  4. June 26, 2020

    Nike is laying off staff and announces a $790 million loss in its latest quarterly earnings.

    Fall on that sword, Nike – many of us removed Nike from our lives YEARS ago.

  5. This kind of blatant tokenism by Nike should outrage the native american population and I’m hoping Dan Snyder stays strong in the face of it !

  6. Here to see all the comments saying “Native Americans aren’t even offended by the name.”

  7. Will be interesting to see how this one plays out. I’d suspect that the only thing to possibly influence Dan Snyder to do the right thing would be a threat to his money. It’s clear by now that he doesn’t care that much about morality. Or even winning football games for that matter.

  8. Nike got out in front with its support of Kaepernick starting with the 2018 ad. And it’s staying out in front with this move. Good for Nike.

  9. is Nike gonna stop using children in China sweat shops to stop making the Redskings gear? Just asking for a friend

  10. Does the website drop down menu list why they employ Asians in sweatshops making their LeBron sneakers they sell to people for $200 a pair? Phil Knight is scum

  11. Might as well remove all the “Patriots” gear as well, since all these babies are so anti-American.

  12. How many blacks work at Nike in a high capacity. Seems like whites are very upset with the term redskin.

    Few in this case is just a narrative change when you’re really speaking about the vast majority of people who are NOT being willfully racist on this topic.

    It wasn’t right when it first happened and it’s not right now.

  14. How many native Americanss work at Nike in a high capacity. Seems like whites are very upset with the term redskin.

  15. BOOOOOOOOOM goes the dynamite! I was totally wrong, my apologies snowflakes, about the whole “get woke go broke” idea, my bad. I guess you can also go broke too by being a bullheaded rich bigot who will “Never!!!” change his footbal team’s racist team name that calls the nations capital home. This is freakin’ hilarious, couldn’t happen to a better guy than Dan Snyder.

  16. Nike has a moral high ground?

    The “we use child labor” Nike? “All of our products are produced in third-world sweatshops by people who are paid pennies of what the products are worth” Nike?

    Get out of here.

    This is the free market bruh. If you dont like it you can move to cuba.

  18. The Native Americans probably hate the Redskins because they suck so bad. Otherwise, a lot of them probably think it’s cool to have a team with that name. If you’ve visited a few reservations lately, I bet you’ve seen many more pressing needs than to change the name of a football team.

  19. Tick…tick…tick. Name change and logo retirement will be announced prior to pre-season.

  20. You know, being offended by everything is not mentally healthy. It causes stress and emotional issues. Instead of trying to change everything why don’t these people seek therapy? They’ll find that life is more enjoyable when they learn not to let things like statues, team names, syrup brands, airport names, etc affect their lives. Trust me it works.

  21. That’s it. Once the boycott will clearly begin costing everyone money, the team name will change.

  22. I think we might as well just get rid of team names and mascots. Because it’s only a matter of time before the perpetually offended become offended by nut team name. With the “hate America” movement we are seeing, I feel like the Patriots are next. What is more offensive to liberalism than patriotism. I’m not even joking. Being against America is the most celebrated thing in America today. If you don’t agree with that you have your head buried somewhere

  23. Doesn’t matter to me. I quit buying Nike when they got into bed with that ingrate Kaepernick.

  24. LOL

    What a joke. The longer this virtue signaling goes on, the more I want the Redskins to keep the name.

  25. I would think that’s a breach of contract of some kind. Not sure how kindly the NFL should respond to their exclusive jersey provider refusing to market a major product.

    I mean, it’s not like they had a different name when Nike recently took over. Was it not offensive then?

    Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

  26. Are any of you blowing your horns even friends with any Native American people– or do you just feel it’s silly for them to be offended? If you can’t see the difference between redskins and chiefs you need to challenge yourself— and for all those who claim they are done watching the NFL- yeah right. By very definition, if you are on this website you will never be done with the NFL.

    Yeah, a company that still maintains slave labor all over the globe …
    —————————————————————–
    Where does this tired old BS narrative come from? Nike makes things in the very same 3rd party factories that every other other athletic shoe company uses, including the brand you own.

  28. NEVER give in to the mob. When you kneel and apologize, they stomp your head into the ground. It only affirms their power over you. Ask Drew Brees, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Simmons, etc.

    The mob isn’t interested in dialogue or discussion, it wants to censor all opposing opinions. And Google, Twitter, and Facebook are doing it for them.

    I would fight for all of your rights to share your opinions, even if you disagree with me. But I think some of you need to ask yourselves if you really want to live in a world where those who disagree with you are silenced. It’s happening now, and it’s only getting worse.

  29. Money.

    The reason Washington’s name will change.

    The reason Kap didn’t get a job (backups aren’t worth 20mil)

  30. This self righteous mob has accomplished something previously utterly unthinkable — generate public sympathy for Danny Snyder. Don’t back down.

  31. I’m a left winger yet I think the name is iconic. C’mon man leave politics out of this.
    Washington Redskins is an iconic franchise

  32. They also did this when Kobe died to respect the situation and prevent buyers from stockpiling merchandise in order to gain profit.

  33. The history of these nouns may include definitions of perceived oppression/violence/discrimination.The following team names must be canceled as they may be offensive to some:
    Chiefs, Raiders, Buccaneers, Vikings, Patriots, Cowboys, Giants, Saints, Browns.

    Yea, I’m sure covid had nothing to do with that quarterly drop. I remember you, by the way. I remember your response to a comment that said their military family wasn’t offended by players kneeling and you went on to say that just because their military family wasn’t offended it didnt make kneeling ok because plenty of others were offended by it. I then asked how you felt about the washingtons name because it was the same type of circumstance. You then said some weak comment like “false comparison” or something like that.

  35. Most Nike products are manufactured by the lowest bidder by workers who toil long hours for an extremely low wage. I’m not surprised Nike has pulled this kind of stunt while treating their workers like garbage

  36. Hey Nike, why didn’t you do this a month ago, year ago 5 years ago? I thought your catch phrase was meant to lead and not follow. Just Blew It!!!

  37. I’m SICK of this story!!! It’s a non issue that people are making an issue. If this was SO bad why wasn’t the name changed BEFORE 3 Super Bowls were won?? Why does a team’s history need to be erased/forgotten?? Ask any child today who the Houston Oilers are….NONE of them will answer the Tennessee Titans, that’s why a name change shouldn’t occur!!! The name isn’t as bad as say, The Yankees (an insult to Northern people) or Rebels.

  38. Courageous decision by Nike to part with $28 in annual revenue that Redskin gear generated.

  39. If someone told me a Redskin was moving in next door, I’d be thinking I was getting a football player for a neighbor.

  40. Hey, Nike? Can we get some Uyghurs merchandise?
    Oh, that’s right. They’re all in concentration camps in China. But you don’t care about that, do you? Someone’s got an anachronistic nickname.

  41. Let’s keep this train rolling and cancel the Chiefs. Enough is enough!!
    #cancelthechiefs

  42. I’m not a lawyer bit Nike has a contract with the NFL. The Redskins should be able to sue for breach of contact by not giving them equal treatment with the other 31 teams.

  43. Place UPS logo on helmets. Places ADIDAS logo on other side of helmet. Boycotting is fruitless with so many billions of dollars in advertising out there. They are just covering their own butt. Nothing else. Cowards.

  44. The California gold rush miners of 1849 the 49ers forcibly removed, raped and murdered 100,000 Native Americans and non-white people to stake their claims. Why do they continue to get a pass?

  45. Snyder should call out Phil Knight. If Knight agrees to move all his sweatshops from China and relocate production to urban communities in the USA, Snyder will change the name to the Knights immediately. LeBron shoes could be made in Akron, is that not a win-win? Balls in your court Phil-

  46. Mr. Snyder should sue Nike for discriminatory selling practices. Open up your wallets Nike.

  47. So now Nike is the voice of social justice? This company has an awful lot of audacity to even utter the words fair treatment. They have sweatshops filled with child labor at about .14$ usd/day…and they give millions to already wealthy athletes to speak out.
    I’m all for LeBron, Malcolm, kaep, whoever speaking their minds..but Nike needs to clean up it’s act (that they’ve been guilty of for 40ish years) before they run their mouths. Just my humble opinion

  48. I’m a fan of this team since I was 3. Now 38, and a long time defender of the name I recognize it’s time for the name to change. Yes, there are much larger racial issues facing this nation but words do matter and so do actions great and small when a change in culture must occur. Let’s move forward. I will remain a fan of this team no matter what.

  49. Nike can remove any product they own just like Daniel Snyder can refuse to change the team name…. eventually someone will be victorious

  50. I’m just going to work Sunday’s instead of watching the NFL. It was good while it lasted

  51. Of course Nike should pay its workers fair wages, but these same people complaining about it in defense of the Washington franchise would be the first ones complaining when the price of a jersey goes up 15% (50% if you want them made in the USA).

  52. You know you can both demand Nike pay its workers fairly AND demand Washington stop using a racial slur for its team name. Its not an either/or choice.

  53. Yeah, the slave shop kids are happy they have one less team to slave and make clothes for. Thanks Nike.

  54. So tired of this … If Native Americans are offended by the team name change it, if not keep it and move on. No one elses opinion matters.

  55. Nike does business with communist China who is ethnically cleansing a race, is clamping down on freedom in Hong Kong, harvests prisoners organs and hair, ranks you as a citizen and obviously uses a labor but let’s care about an “offensive” name

  56. Let’s see… Vikings is Scandinavian. Packers is slang for butchers, Chiefs is slang for Indians, Raiders is slang for looters of the sea, Patriots… Liberals Hate Patriots, Giants is making fun of big people, Cowboys is slang for ranchers. Screw it, let’s get rid of all the team names… Let’s just call them out by state or city. Everyone wears blue because no one has blue skin except smirfs.

  57. To the guys that give up on the NFL for the Redskins name change, black lives matter and kneeling during the anthem. I hope that years down the road you can forgive yourselves.
    For now it’s best you go and move on. You give the sport and the fans a bad name. There’s no place for racism in America.

  58. Touché.
    Mullins of Americans, Canadians, andceuropeans have removed Nike from their preferred products list.
    I just bought a pair of Sketchers a few hours ago.
    I did not see one single item of Nike gear in the store.
    Not one.

    Good job, Kap!
    What else could it be? Nike lost close to $1b last year. They’re laying off employees. They never learn.
    Get woke, go broke.

    Just to be clear I’m not defending the team name. Nike has zero self awareness if they feel they are entitled to speak out on injustice and fair treatment.
    You also have no idea what people think or would buy. That 150$ jersey was made for about 6$.

  60. Would you rather have Snyder gone (as owner) or the team name changed?

    Why can’t I have cake and eat it too?

    ________
    They may well be able to sue. But then they are just fanning the flames when it’s there own barn that is on fire. The law is one thing, but sentiment of the times often carries more weight.

  62. Hope the activists then come after Nike for the sweatshops & child labor they got going in China or do the offended only care about American minority groups ?? Prove all lives matter

  63. Keep that same energy with Florida State Seminoles who use a live mascot dressed like a Native American with a flaming arrowhead spear they bury into the ground. Not offense enough ? Add in the the teams Chant …. But somehow they get a pass ? Braves use the chant and arrowhead axe in logo, KC Chiefs got arrowhead with feathers, chant and stadium named Arrowhead…. Where is the line drawn ? FightingIrish at Notre Dame , Chicago Blackhawks in hockey ,AZ Cardinals & NO Saints offensive to the church ? Cleveland Browns get a pass yet bet if it was Cleveland Blacks stadium would be torched to the ground

  64. Earnings reports for Q4 will begin to tell us if this ‘all in’ SJW grift from Nike and others pans out. Either way it’s just free marketing, but I will bet it blows up in their faces.

  65. So many people post here who don’t live anywhere near an NFL city…. yet full of opinions. Our teams aren’t for you.

  66. If you are a fan and you want Redskins’ gear you don’t go the the Nike website, you go to the NFL Shops website. And guess what, go to the NFL Shop Redskins’s website and the first thing you see is a link to “New Nike” merc LOL. I mean come on, they make eveything for the NFL, they can’t just stop making stuff for one team.

  67. Really nice of nike to not allow the 90% of Native Americans that do like the logo to be deprived of it by nike??? Isn’t that called discrimination?!

  68. Ok. Potential solution:

    1. The crux of this is whether the majority of native Americans find this offensive

    2. The US is so fragmented at the moment that I find it hard to believe the veracity in polls coming from any media source

    3. One thing that Covid has shown us is that there are a lot more things we can do remotely. We still think in 20th Century ways of having to go to an office to work, or having to queue to vote. So…

    How about allowing all native American people a day to vote remotely as to whether they want the name changed? If they majority vote yes, then change it. If they vote no, then let the debate die for 10 years or so. If the vote is close then the Redskins will probably need to do a bit more talking to find a solution.

    Although maybe don’t use the same app that was used in Iowa

  69. He should make these people’s heads spin by changing the colors to blue and gold and calling them the Washington Cavalry.

  70. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say Nike or anyone else has the right not to be offended.

  71. Gotta love when white people decide what is and isn’t racist towards other people, there’s the problem

  72. Well done Nike. Well done. Use sweatshop labor to make your product. Earn massive profits for it. Let Kaepernick tell you to cancel the Betsy Ross flag shoes. Did he tell you to do this as well? What other team names are you scared of? Certainly the Chiefs are next, right?

  73. The Packers got their name from the i n d i a n packing company. where’s the outrage?

    Wait….what?

    Btw lol at the racists crying foul about something they don’t even care about. Like the Confederate statues…don’t even know they are gone.

    No suffering here. I don’t let words or statues offend me.

  77. If you go to Nike’s top executive bios on their website, not one person of color. But yes, please lecture us about diversity and equality.

  78. It doesn’t matter what they call that team, they will always be losers as long as Snyder owns them.

  79. Great …NOW NIKE can create a horrible new logo and uniform for Washington. Their designers are working with their 64 count crayons as we speak.

  80. Nike has no business preaching anything. They use sweat shops to make there products. Liberals preach equality than use Nike as there brand. Let’s go see the working conditions of nikes factories.

  81. Lets boycott Nike, they need to just make there crap and stay out of everything else.

  82. The NFL should do their home work on a movement before showing their support. Because it has come to light that Black Lives Matter gets its funding from Thousand Currents and one of the biggest sponsor is Susan Rosenberg a known terrorist.

  83. Keep that same energy with Florida State Seminoles who use a live mascot dressed like a Native American with a flaming arrowhead spear they bury into the ground. Not offense enough ? Add in the the teams Chant …. But somehow they get a pass ?
    _______________________________________

    Yes, because the real Seminole nation endorses the mascot and traditions of FSU.

  84. Can you hear that? It’s the giant sigh of relief from the child laborers in Nike factories throughout Asia who will no longer have to manufacture these hateful garments.

  85. Remove all names that reference native Americans and tribes from all sports, professional and collegiate.

    It’ll be a critical step to removing any reminder that they were ever here. It is what they want, no?

  86. I’m amazed at all the hyper-sensitive snowflakes getting so upset over efforts to remove racism and racist symbols in this country. It’s as if every such effort forces them to look in the mirror and they’re too afraid to face who they are.

  90. Nike has a lot of nerve…pot/kettle glass house/Stone. Now The Redskins should not have to represent the Nike Brand. Cover the Nike sign on the jerseys, hats (with a BLM Patch), and shoes (with tape) like Jordan did in the Olympics when he used the flag to cover up Reebok logo.

  91. So if 9 out of 10 native Americans don’t find the name offensive where is this coming from?

    White Progressive Liberals. Its where all of this comes from

  92. Say what you want about Redskins.

    But Nike is no social justice champion. They operate sweatshops in southeast Asia to fuel their profits made from charging Americans (including African-Americans) hundreds of dollars for shoes that cost $20 to make (yes, that is really true cost).

    Don’t fall for these companies that claim to support social justice.

    Sure as long as the offensive Yankees, Panthers, Seminoles, Chiefs, Blackhawks, Warriors and others change their names!!!!!

  97. I grew up in an era that taught us to be quite a bit tougher than people today. We were taught things like “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. What the hell happened to the toughest country on the planet, when did we all get so soft minded? I guess it all started with “Participant Ribbons”!

  98. 9 out of 10 Americans don’t find the N word offensive so this s coming from people who actually have a brain!!

    Disagree with the comparison…..if the name was THAT bad then this issue would’ve been addressed in the early 80w

    You think tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson is going to bring you racial justice? You think the Redskins changing their name is going to make the country less racist?

    You are focusing on the wrong things, dude! All these things you are demanding change on are superficial. The elites are more than happy to give in to that. But the deeper things, you are not even touching.

  100. The guy who owns FedEx is one of the guys who owns the Redskins. Why would FedEx ask the Redskins to change the name instead of Fred Smith just bringing it up in an ownership meeting?

    Nike is laying off staff and announces a $790 million loss in its latest quarterly earnings.

    Fall on that sword, Nike – many of us removed Nike from our lives YEARS ago

    Yea, I’m sure covid had nothing to do with that quarterly drop. I remember you, by the way. I remember your response to a comment that said their military family wasn’t offended by players kneeling and you went on to say that just because their military family wasn’t offended it didnt make kneeling ok because plenty of others were offended by it.

    ————–
    Your memory is sketchy at best …

    a) posting about the quarterly loss was just that and nothing more – assuming intent is pure conjecture on your part
    b) your memory on the military comment is very, very poor … I stated that just because one military person approved of the kneeling was not a generalization that it was endorsed by all those in the military and that there are many in the military who are offended by the kneeling
    c) it’s called “false equivalence” … make note of that and learn to understand what it means.

    ————————————————
    Fake news. Do some research. All athletic shoe companies contract with the same factories as every other brand, including the new Sketchers the guy in this thread is proud of.

    These ecompanies all pay the going wage rate in that particular country, they don’t employ children. You are repeating the same made-up, nonsense narrative.

  106. I’m a Seahawk fan and I just went and bought Redskin merchandise from NFL.com just to show support for the brand. The world is losing its mind.

  107. I smell a breach of contract lawsuit coming. To not equally endorse the redskins in Nike’s site as they are part of the 32 nfl teams is not fair. Washington has already won their trademark in court and Nike still signed on as the exclusive merch for the nfl. Can’t wait to see how this plays out. Snyder is going to own Nike lol.

  108. This isn’t a political issue, but folks insist on making it one. Is it racist or not — let the native americans decide. I find it clearly offensive, but my opinion and the opinions of 99% of those above don’t matter. And I’m a republican by the way.

  109. I’m sure they’re relocating all of their factories to high cost of living countries as well as to stop exploiting the oppressed populaces and supporting the openly racist communist regimes.

  110. > Where does this tired old BS narrative come from? Nike makes things
    > in the very same 3rd party factories that every other other athletic
    > shoe company uses, including the brand you own.

    While that may be the case, Nike’s competition aren’t acting like virtue-signalling hypocrites.

    FTR: I didn’t stop buying Nike because of the Kap fiasco, I stopped buying Nike because the quality of their products is utterly abysmal and they have no sense of customer service whatsoever. Their competition simply makes better products.

  111. Great now that is one less company to deal with. Nike has nothing for anyone in this household to buy from now on. Lets watch their stock drop.
