Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesn’t care for it and he suggests anyone who’s taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country.
But don’t listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ:
“If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old fashioned, so I’m only going to say what I feel. You don’t protest against the flag and you don’t protest against this country who’s given you the opportunities to make a living playing a sport that you never thought would happen… so, I don’t want to hear all the crap.”
Now here’s something funny about Mike Ditka, besides his left eye that now appears to be wondering wide left like the double doink that cost the Chicago Bears their season against the Eagles. He’s about to be the chairman of a women’s football league called the X League. They’re a tackle football league that’s starting up next April.
Of course, it’s women playing football, so literally no one will care about this league. However, anything is better than the WNBA, which is probably the worst sports league in the history of sports.
And to make matters worse for the WNBA, a league that’s used to playing in empty arenas, they just walked out on the national anthem too.
Say goodbye to that league. Hopefully it ends soon because the WNBA is just horrible.
I’m all for police reform and making sure our cops and community get along with each other, but this whole national anthem thing is stupid.
