Mike Ditka is never one to mince words, and he didn't when asked Wednesday about the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger situation by Dan Le Batard on ESPN Radio in Miami.

Ditka said he has "no sympathy" for Sterger and questions the timing of the racy text messages and photos that were released on the website

"I'm not going to be as sympathetic to the woman as a lot of people are," Ditka said. "It's two years after the fact. Cut it out, you know- If you had a problem, you could have said it back then."

It should be noted that Deadspin has always claimed they did not receive the messages from Sterger, but instead from a third party.

"You don't have to pull it up when when you're going to have a spread in Playboy or you're going to have a Monday night game coming up," he said.

"I'm old-fashioned."

Sterger posed in Playboy in 2006 while she attended Florida State University.

Le Batard continued with Ditka: "So, no sympathy- "

"None. Zero. Absolutely zero," Ditka responded. "Now, you'll get some calls about that, but frankly I could care less."

Le Batard: "But it is sexual harassment, Mike."

"I don't know about that," Ditka said. "If it's sexual harassment, if it's not reported until two years after the fact. I really don't, I'll be honest with you."

After ending the interview, Le Batard said: "I think Mike Ditka just got himself in trouble."
