    $200k for Nike is nothing.... just a show off for marketing reasons. If they wanted to do something for real they would donate much more.

    Actually Nike has done a lot for the gay community. Much more than any other sporting company. They even had a national campaign to find the first open gay sport star.

    It's sad that they do something good and everyone rips them...icon_rolleyes.gif

    For any company that tries to do any ounce of good, there will ALWAYS be an opposition.

    Apparently It's either give us 10% plus of all your profits or don't bother at all.
