Look What Just Happened to Legendary Coach Mike Ditka Right After Coming out Against Obama; and Here’s Who He Supports for POTUS

Mike Ditka, a former NFL player and coach of the Chicago Bears, is being replaced on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown supposedly for remarks he made on air recently about President Obama. It was reported by the Big Lead that he will be replaced by Matt Hasselbeck.

Ditka has worked for the network since 2004 after previously working for CBS and NBC. The former Super Bowl champion coach will have a new but unspecified emeritus-type role at the network in the future, says a source.


Matt Hasselbeck spent the previous three football seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. In 2005, he led the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl. Since 2008 he has worked as a studio analyst for the ESPN. He will also appear on Monday Night Countdown and is expected to contribute to other ESPN shows and platforms.

A few days ago, Ditka stated that he believes the president is a great guy to play golf with, but that, “He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front.” Furthermore, “We need somebody like Ronald Reagan. Everyone once in a while you’re gonna get punched in the chops but you keep going forward. There’s all there is to it.”

Ditka once described himself as ‘ultra-ultra conservative’ and admitted that he will most probably support Donald Trump in the next election. (Read more from “Look What Just Happened to Legendary Coach Mike Ditka Right After Coming out Against Obama” HERE)

    Does that surprise anyone? With the rotten left wing media we have in this country? This further confirms how much our media is left wing and in the tank for the filthy democrats.

    Ditka lied. Obama is not a great guy even if he plays golf with him

  • ivdad

    You actually believe the New Barak Channel would retaliate against a non Obama supporter?

    So much for diversity and inclusiveness. Ditka should run for office. Then he can say what he wants and Obama’s minions cannot stop him. And hey, Chicago. Obama doesn’t love you. He isn’t even considering moving there, ever. Hahahaha. He prefers California, where he can continue to play bad golf.
