Mike Ditka: “kneeling athletes should 'get the hell out of the country'”

Pro Football Player Hall of Fame Sports commentator made a statement on how he feels kneeling players should be handled.

According to CNN.com “"If it was up to me, I'd say no," Ditka responded when asked about kneeling. "If you can't respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That's the way I feel. Of course, I'm old- fashioned. So, I'm only going to say what I feel."

Dikta is the chairman of the X League. As of right now, the X League hasn’t made a statement on this matter.
