Hall of Famer and Former Bears coach Mike Ditka just destroyed 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his disrespect of the National Anthem.

Ditka was asked by Dallas’s 105.3 The Fan about Colin Kaepernick and he responded with this:

“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. That’s what I think.”

Ditka added that he has “no respect” for Kaepernick and didn’t care if the 49ers quarterback had any respect for him.

“So if you’re asking me, I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick. He probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is that 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. Now, If you don’t work, that’s a different problem.”
