Ditka to Kaepernick: If you disrespect our country then ‘get the hell out’ [AUDIO]


Mike Ditka is not a fan of Colin Kaepernick.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not been shy about voicing his opinion when it comes to perceived inequalities in America.

Kaepernick began the trend of kneeling during the National Anthem as a way to “protest” the state of affairs in the U.S.

Well, Ditka isn’t having any of it.

During a recent interview Friday on 103.5 The Fan, the former NFL coach didn’t hold back.

“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.

“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.

“I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunity – now if they don’t want to look for them – then you can find problems with anything, but this is the land of opportunity because you can be anything you want to be if you work. If you don’t work…that’s a different problem.”

Kaepernick has not responded to Ditka’s comments as of yet.

Ravens run out clock by holding every, single Bengals player [VIDEO]

ravens-holding-every-bengals-playerIt was pure genius.

The Baltimore Ravens were up six points against the Cincinnati Bengals with the clock winding down in the fourth quarter. Baltimore was on its own 23-yard-line and facing fourth down with 11 seconds left in the game.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh had a trick up his sleeve, though.

“Hold everyone and run the clock out.”

No, really, that was it. Harbaugh had all of his offensive linemen hold their opponents while punter Sam Koch danced around in the end zone until time ran out.

If you look closely, one Ravens player even seems to have a defender in a sleeper hold.

Why does this play work? Larry Brown Sports explains:

Straight from the NFL rulebook, there is no replayed, untimed down on an offensive foul on the final play of a half or game. The officials explained on the field after the play that there would be no replay of the down, thus counting the safety against Baltimore and ending the game.

If it looked a little familiar, it’s because the Ravens ran this same exact play during Super Bowl XLVII.


Colts punter Pat McAfee to Antonio Brown: ‘Don’t cleat me in the face’

antonio-brown-cleats-faceIt was a memorable moment in NFL history.

On September 7, 2014, Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers kicked Cleveland Browns ex-punter Spencer Lanning in the face with his cleats during a kick return.

Punters have been avoiding the Steelers wideout ever since.

On Tuesday, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted to Brown asking for mercy as the two teams square off on Thanksgiving day.

Hey @AntonioBrown.. it’s gonna be Thanksgiving.. my mom’s gonna be there.. once again, none of this.. please.. thanks in advance

Brown seemed to take it in stride, advising that McAfee should just kick the ball out of bounds.

Maybe McAfee should just sit this one out.
