Living With a Football Father

Even at his old age, he still looks youthful and attractive to women younger than him. His family had a coal mining manufacturing company and they have been always successful with their business operations. He is the most successful member of his family and he was born to his mother Charlotte and his father, Mike Ditka Sr.

Mike Ditka born in Pennsylvania. He did some small bits as an actor but everyone knows him as a football coach.  He became a member for Sigma Chi Fraternity in 1958. He was a member of the organization for two years. He was a good athlete when it came to playing basketball and baseball when he was still in his college years. He started to get really good at football and was chosen to join the College Football All-America team. Getting on the team opened up the path to having a professional career as a football player. When he was in his senior year, he was a very good player and he helped his college reach to a winning position. He was destined to become a pro player.

Even though he has said some controversial statements, no one denies his passion and knowledge of football.


Outspoken Views of Megan’s Father

Mike Ditka got a lot of attention when he voiced his opinion on the Colin Kapernick protest situation with the NFL. Kapernick became famous when he decided to kneel during the national anthem at a football. He did the gesture to protest against the police and their violence against black citizens. The act received some criticism from conservative fans who felt that it was a sign of disrespect to the country.

There was a divide between the country because the people who supported Kapernick felt that he shouldn’t be punished because he was just doing a peaceful protest. Ditka got in trouble for saying that there hasn’t been any oppression in the country for over a century and people felt he implied that black people should get over any injustices because they weren’t being treated as bed as their ancestors.

In an interview with One Peter Five, Ditka was asked why young sports stars stop thanking Jesus after their games, “It might have been the sports news outfit that made him stop, and maybe he just felt other pressures. But it’s a damned shame.”

He was also asked if there was a connection between the reduction of religion in America and the NFL Protest against the national anthem, “Sure. Look, this is a kid’s game played for millions of dollars, and these guys feel they have to protest it. It’s bullshit, people taking a knee during our anthem. America is about the only country in the world where you can even play football for money, and these whiners feel the need to protest it. It makes no rational sense at all. Don’t even try to reason about it. There’s no rhyme or reason to their thinking. What they’re doing is a disgrace to the sport and to the country. And yes, I do believe that this is somehow related to the flight from religion, or what have you. If you can’t even put the country and what’s morally right above yourself, then you have some serious problems. It’s pathetic. We’ve got some really serious problems with people’s priorities right now. Definitely, I think the retreat from Christianity is related to all this. I can’t say exactly how, though. Something needs to be done. I don’t even know what they’re protesting – whether it’s President Trump or something – and frankly, I don’t think they do, either.”

Mike thinks that the country needs to return a traditional format where men are the leaders. In his view, men are the leaders and that’s just the way it is. Men take care of women, like Adam should have taken care of Eve. A man’s a man. He says he didn’t make the rules but he is just saying the obvious.
