“Like many people — including the president — Ditka has conflated the vehicle for their protest with the subject of the protest. (Again, the players are not protesting the anthem or the flag, and their stated intention has nothing to do with disrespecting the armed forces. No player has criticized the troops.) But Ditka also took things to a new level of unreality.”

“There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of.”

— Mike Ditka, Hall of Fame football player and coach
