Ditka said if he were coaching now, he would require players to stand for the national anthem, or they wouldn't play.

Ditka sat down for an interview with Jim Gray of Westwood One prior to last night's Monday Night game between the Bears and Minnesota Vikings, and said players should respect the game by protesting when the game is over.

I think the opportunity is there for everybody; race, religion, creed, color, nationality. If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort in, I think you can accomplish anything.

You have a ballot box, you have an election.

"How (a) bout you and all the protesters go to city hall or the state capital to protest, not at a football game", tweeted Joseph Bailey.
