T. eighty of his brain degenerating disease and for our listening audience questions or comments please give us a call locally in Clark County area seven zero two two five seven five three nine six or toll free eight hundred four one four one zero five six you know you were takin RJ about that the NFL they have a concussion protocol tent now that they take a man as soon as they get hit in the ad and and evaluate him and take him out of the game and then I haven't watched the Pro Bowl in a long time this time when I was watching the polo ball I said my god they're not even tackle the numb and thrown into the ground there just if they grab a hold of them they blow the whistle on and the place that there because it's a non essential game they change all the rules and I think it's a great thing you know it's like you go to the Pro Bowl and you get hurt and and you get thrown to the ground a couple times are going to get hurt well there's a lot of there's a lot of sports that a contact sport you know the soccer these are all things that that can lead to traumatic brain injury so we have to pay attention and I think they are starting to step up and look at a quick buttons and how much safety things but not enough not enough in going back to donating your brain when you pass on how important that could be for future generations how would they again what chart with a look of project in list dot org and I wanna once again I can't emphasize the importance of the American Legion magazine and this article they did on the brain if you can read that it'll make a lot more sense to you what we're talking about because the little as I said the little things add up and this article explains how that happens and there's some examples in there too and matter of fact the person that's in charge of the of what I should say on the board of directors for the concussion legacy foundation was a farmer football player and had this disease but he also had a degree in science and that's what kept him going on in researching what was happening with his bright and he found out that you know he probably is thinking to himself I do a lot of stupid things when I was younger because I let myself get knocked around so much and is we look back in our own lives you know we've probably done a few of those things too I don't know how many motorcycle riders we got out there but I think almost everybody that prides motorcycles taken a fall at one time or another and that could be the one little thing or it might have been a major thing that adds up on this see E. T. E. type disease who knows we want done on time here are J. let's talk about a couple of events that we've got coming up ship J.
