I wrote to ESPN about getting rid of this fat old white man......Ugh.

Before Sundayís game, five St. Louis Rams players took the field in a ďhands up, donít shootĒ solidarity protest for Ferguson and Michael Brown.

Neither the NFL nor the Rams penalized the players for their actions. When asked if they should have, Mike Ditka said:

ďItís a shame this thing has come to this,Ē Ditka told the Chicago Sun-Times for his weekly feature column. ďThe shame of it is, Iím not sure they care about Michael Brown or anything else. This was a reason to protest and to go out and loot. Is this the way to celebrate the memory of Michael Brown? Is this an excuse to be lawless? Somebody has to tell me that. I donít understand it. I understand what the Ramsí take on this was. Iím embarrassed for the players more than anything. They want to take a political stand on this? Well, there are a lot of other things that have happened in our society that people have not stood up and disagreed about.

ďI wasnít in Ferguson. I donít know exactly what happened. But I know one thing: If we dismantle and limit the power of our policemen any more than we have already, then weíre going to have a lot of problems in this country.

ďWhat do you do if someone pulls a gun on you or is robbing a store and you stop them? I donít want to hear about this hands-up crap. Thatís not what happened. I donít know exactly what did happen, but I know thatís not what happened. This policemanís life is ruined. Why? Because we have to break somebody down. Because we have to even out the game. I donít know. I donít get it. Maybe Iím just old fashioned.Ē

2. Ditka said that he didn't know exactly what happened.

The stupid burns strong in him. It's best to keep your mouth shut when you are ignorant as to what occurred; otherwise, you prove your ignorance.

3. I hate Mike Ditka

Hes a good ol boy Republican. He shows his true colors saying shit like this. I used to have one of his businesses as an account when I lived in Chicago. Every person that worked there was an asshole AND incompetent.
