NFL coaching legend Mike Ditka didn’t hold back when asked his opinion of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

[dcquiz] “I think it’s a problem, anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country they don’t like our flag get the hell out,” the former Bears coach said during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan’s show “Shan & RJ.” (RELATED: Millionaire NFL Quarterback Has Mind-Boggling Reason For Refusal To Stand For National Anthem)

He also added, “I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick. He probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is, I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.” (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: America Stood Up For Colin Kaepernick, He Should Stand For The Flag)


Criticism of Colin Kaepernick for refusing to stand during the national anthem and honor America continues to pile up from all corners of the sports world.

Ditka’s takes on just about everything are always gold and his comments on Kaepernick are certainly not an exception.
