The liberal charades and the stupid anti-American stunts pulled by certain NFL players enraged the nation. Most of the people in the USA, black or white, can’t understand why some people who are supposed to fight against politics affecting our everyday life and entertainment, are the loudest propagandists in present time.
However, Mike Ditka is not shocked. He quickly came up with a solution to make the disrespectful NFL players respect the national anthem and the US people.
Iron Mike Ditka suffers no fools. He is the former hard nosed coach of the Chicago Bears, a two-time Super Bowl champion, and two-time NFL Coach of the Year.
He ran a tight ship and famously came back to work in a few weeks after a heart attack.
And this was years ago, without recent medical advancements.
He was being interviewed about the NFL and the topic, of course, came around to the scandalous behavior of the still unemployed Colin Kaepernick and the total malcontent Marshawn Lynch who have both gone out of their way to disgrace America.
Ditka has the right solution and every single coach in the NFL should listen and do exactly what he says.
If so we would stop this problem dead in its tracks.
Listen up guys because literally your careers hang in the balance.
“Well, here’s the thing. When we live in a society that pays attention to athletes, say, as greatly as they do to Kaepernick, then we’re foolish. I mean, athletes’ opinions are no different than anybody else’s, they’re no more significant than anybody else’s. They’re no more important than anybody else’s.
“Kaepernick would be an unknown, a complete unknown – nobody would know who he was – without the game of football, without the sport he’s playing. And not to respect that, you’ve got be a pretty unintelligent person, I would think.
“Because I don’t care what your preferences are, you can have anything you want to. But what he has was given to him by the game of football. I think it’s important to me that some of these young people playing the game start giving something back to the game. And respect the game the way it should be respected instead of acting like a bunch of fools out there.”
Radio Host: “No doubt about it. Hypothetically, Coach Ditka’s on the sidelines and one of his players takes a knee during the National Anthem, what happens to the player in that case?”
Ditka: “He doesn’t play for me ever again.”
What do you think about Mike Ditka’s idea? Sometimes, the big associations like the NFL are supposed to take care of these little ‘errors’ that make people angry. It is a multi-billion business and if not for love, they should do it for the money. Don’t you agree?
