Thousands of people took to a rally at Susan Park Playground to protest Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn’s decision to ban booster clubs from buying Nike apparel. In the crowd were a few guests in the form of Saints’ defensive end Cam Jordan and Saints tackle Terron Armstead. “Everything that Nike has done with this slogan is pushing forward. When it comes to something like this, and it’s affecting the community that we’re in now, how is this pushing forward?” Jordan said. “I was in disbelief initially,” Armstead said. “I don’t see how it’s lawful to have such a thing hovering over the community.” Zahn banned doing business with Nike following their decision to make former San Francisco 49ers QB the face of their 30th anniversary ‘Just Do It’ campaign. – TO
