Former NFL player and legendary coach of the Chicago Bears Mike Ditka said during the Monday Night Football pregame show that he does not support the NFL players who continue to protest America during the singing of the National Anthem.
He reminded the audience that everyone in this great country has a tremendous opportunity, regardless of religion or race. Ditka added, “There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people.”
Why is Ditka so mad? Because he thinks millionaire football players should get back to playing football and leave the politics alone. He added, “I don’t care who you are or how much money you make. If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you had to go to somewhere else and try to play this sport, you wouldn’t have a job.”
Here is the powerful clip. Well said, Coach Ditka!

Liberals immediately attacked the famous coach on Twitter:
Mike Ditka spent a lot of his life around Black men.
He’s proof you can be around Black people & still not know much about Them.Advertisement - story continues below...

But we know Coach Ditka is right, which is why the NFL Commissioner just announced that he believes all football players should stand during the National Anthem.
