Boycott?

After reading the following article (quoted in Christian Century magazine, but originally from the NY Times), I am seriously considering boycotting Nike products...

"STANDING BY THEIR MEN:  Nike, the sportswear giant, did not drop golfer Tiger Woods as an endorser of its products, despite Woods's widely publicized philandering.  More recently, Nike decided to maintain its relationship with Ben Roethlisberger, even though the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback had been charged with two counts of sexual assault in less than a year and given a six-day suspension by the National Football League.  But Nike did drop former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick after his dogfighting operation was exposed."
