Mike Ditka is now the owner and chairmen of 'X League' football, apparently. 

X-League is a women's tackle football league that was originally founded as the Lingerie Football League. In 2009 they rebranded to the Legends Football League, and 10 years after that decided to again rebrand, this time calling it X-League. Now Mike Ditka owns it. There's a video and everything, exclusively featuring footage and photos of his playing days (??): 

Ditka also provides a quote in the video, saying, "Now from an ownership and executive perspective, I want to provide women a high-profile platform to compete against the greatest female athletes in the world while creating a destination league for millions of girls to aspire to play in."

"It's time to give women, and girls, the same opportunity to play the game that the men play," he added.
