There after I -- what got you would we put that on FaceBook and it's overwhelmingly. To tie between two Shaq and George amorous. Our George Harrison. Told him Jack hold on what you expect from George mirrors and go into them what did you really was so bad -- could. -- he also said. They are right there -- -- -- line in the war Arnold. Sometimes you don't need an important. That's parent China should do playoffs with the. -- I don't. News now but not one thing you know their service since I was at UCLA here that I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell year old man who -- -- in Europe and on the court got forty minutes. That was great night and got the votes for a Brett Favre in something about well hello Mary was OK. But he was playing -- yeah. I wasn't playing really a character or whatever and that's right there. He knows the truth you. Points -- for a. All right Deion Sanders recently said that the NFL doesn't have a concussion problem -- that these former players are only out for the money. Is Deion Sanders playing the shill for the NFL or is he on to something. In the game is the -- gave equipment is better. Don't buy out these guys coming back released because I am not bad happening desert makes the money up to deal that's real talk this really -- I would -- the odd isn't it true. Because it's keeping kids away from my game. 01 SAL oh now it -- -- tournament. He's not -- -- he's been a show for the NFL. But the -- represents. Some of those guys and it's amazing that he represented them because he that he never did anything I'd ever Jack Kennedy did it but I think there are a lot of people. Who feel like Deion Sanders does. That always football eagle out there and -- dinged up and get -- -- -- all the cliches were concussions and they don't wanna hear -- they're -- And we would be IE okay. Let's go here I think when we would be very naive to think everybody who is doing the NFL. As. CT. Or everybody who was doing that Al NFL NFL has problems because it's keeping kids away from my game now. Keeping kids away from the game by hiding. The concussion problem I mean we all know the concussion problem -- it's not like there's some question right now as to whether this is real issue when. And so yeah you're right Deion Sanders if we were to close horizon wind on this subject. But your kids would never know about it parents of kids would never know about it. And there would be more kids playing the game but it's an issue with a serious issue and you're right Michael all the guys are probably. Not necessarily have major problems and -- life. And some of them might be cashing in try to get a few bucks but I -- Dion Sanders was was so -- in a way he dealt with a. And yeah it leads me to be very suspicious. This is trying to make money on it struck sucked up to the commissioner that that you know he's on the NFL network he is playing their company grow accessible from the capsule or how -- because I think it could be running out but but because he's gonna he's gonna get better positions. With the league and in the network he wants them like you know it's all about relationships let's assume that NFL network in all. That's what it's about it's about every relationships normally they want people in the that are -- Don't present the sport properly. Here's where I would be pissed off players association should be furious at the -- all these ex players who got picked crap beat out a month for -- so we could. Play in the second around -- watch anybody. Sure it -- on our entire apartment were. Brought up is because I clapped yeah. Coming from -- I -- right because it's keeping it away from GameStop it. -- I don't find it I'm amazed me how short is that we're scared straight for these clubs are you Johnson to argue that I don't know acknowledged -- -- -- -- in policeman or. Today is national signing day for college football. Questions. What is the highlight of -- High school athletic career -- thought it was the push jobs -- yesterday. It's the right now was on the.
