During a recent interview, legendary NFL coach Mike Ditka ripped those who kneel for the National Anthem.
“If you can’t respect this country get the hell out of it,” he said.
The comments from Ditka came during an interview with Newsmax.
“Football’s football. It’s not a complicated thing,” he said. “You’re playing the game, you’re enjoying the game. You don’t like the game, get out of it. It’s not for protesting one way or the other. What color you are, what you think, this or that. You play football. That’s it. You’re privileged. You got a gift from God that you can play the game because you got a body you can do it with. I don’t really understand what you’re protesting. I played the game. I coached the game for a long time. It makes no sense to me.”
