Former NFL coach and Hall of Fame member Mike Ditka had some thoughts on the real issue of the NFL protests and some people may not like them.
“I don’t know what social injustices [there] have been. Muhammad Ali rose to the top. Jesse Owens is one of the classiest individuals that ever lived. Are you talking everything based on color? I don’t see it that way. You have to be color blind in this country. You have to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for and how he produces – not by the color of his skin. That has never had anything to do with anything.
“But, all of a sudden, it has become a big deal now – about oppression. 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. I think the opportunity is there for everybody –
race, religion, creed, color, nationality. If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort in, you can accomplish anything. And we have watched that throughout our history of our country.
What Mr. Ditka has failed to take note of is we aren’t really equal and we haven’t been since the founding of our nation. Yes Muhammad Ali rose to the top but he had to earn it. He was stripped of his title for protesting the Vietnam war, and demeaned by racists all throughout his lifetime. Yes while it may be true that Jesse Owens is one of the classiest individuals that ever lived, saying that doesn’t make your point. So he’s classy? and? what does being a man of good character have to do with anything about police injustice toward people of color?
If you ask me Mr. Ditka has on some rose cullored glasses that are bought at the white privilege store.
Also, Mr. Ditka had this to say about those who protest: Ditka took it one step further and suggested that players who kneel should leave the country altogether.
“Yes, I don’t care who you are, 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 somewhere else and try to play the sport, you wouldn’t have a job. If you don’t respect this flag and this country, then you don’t know what this is all about. I would say, adios.

Ahh Futbol a game where people bring all types of stuff.
Someone at the England-Slovakia qualifying match for the World Cup threw an paper airplane and it went through the uprights.
A video taken during Thursday night’s soccer game at Wembley Stadium shows a paper airplane thrown from high in the stands slowly gliding down to the field, according to the UPI. The plane flutters toward the goal, eliciting excited shouts from the crowd, and crosses the goal line. Witnesses said the cheer when the plane went into the goal was the loudest of the evening. The filmer said the crowd had been bored due to the score being tied 0-0 at the time of the incident. England won 1-0.
Your team is winning the wild card game. You know when you win you’ll go to the playoffs. However, if your Gary Sanchez –
ketcher for the New York Yankees – you most likely won’t file this win into your memory banks.
Things were going good for the “bronks bombers” until: Twins second baseman Brian Dozier stepped up to the plate with the Yankees winning 7-4.
Mr. Dozier had a 2-1 count against Yankees pitcher David Robertson before hacking two foul balls off of knuckle curves, one of them tipped off of his bat during a big swing and drilled Sanchez between the legs. The pitcher knew where it hit him and screamed for his fellow teammate.
The UPI reports that Dozier took a walk on the play. Hope he checked on the ketcher rather than just leaving. Sanchez stayed in the game. Which is badass.
