Once you learn a skill or a trade, you have it for life. Number four, CTE does not mean no traditional college or advanced level of career. Your students education path doesn't end with certification and CTE program. Most trades are now looking for an advanced level of academic experience.

"The ongoing and really renewed respect for the skilled trades through the pandemic, we're seeing a lot more interest in pursuing those careers. I mean, when you think about it for all of us, if we have a task that we are asked to do and there is a viable valid reason, why it needs to be done that way, a certain way, and for on a certain timeline, we are all much more apt to say, oh, okay. I can do that. And that's what we find in this academic environment where we are teaching some very high level academic core content. But in a way that is practical and applicable in the students can understand the rationale behind it and oftentimes in the research shows it is learning that that will be sustained learning. It's not just for the test and then you don't remember it anymore. It's sustained learning and it's ingrained. Yes, sir, that mentality, if you teach someone to fish, they'll eat forever type of deal. You alluded to some of the benefits of participating in a boss or a CTE program. But can you expand on some of the benefits you see that students experience from participating? Sure. And from a parent perspective, I think it's important because at least parents who are of my generation may have grown up in with a mindset that they weren't equal pathways of a vocational track or a college bound track. And as I mentioned before, it's an either or you either do this or you do that. And what the takeaway I would like for parents to consider is if you were on a college check yourself and you went through a traditional four year university, you know, if you were blast to have had parents who saved and were able to pay for that, if you were fortunate enough to maybe get some scholarships and even some financial aid and had to take out.

"York, my centers are located in two counties. And we serve as 16 school districts. So our students are typically 11th and 12th graders, and they come to the regional technical centers for training in the skilled trades and health careers as part of their journey on to what's next, whether it's immediately into the workforce or if it's moving on to advanced training and post secondary. That's great. And now there are a lot of acronyms, right? And you said both of these stands for board of cooperative educational services. And that's exclusive to New York State states around the country have different ways in which they can regionalize services, but that's how it works in New York State. Yeah, wonderful. And actually, I know in our pre interview we talked about because I was unaware whether bosses or the CTE was a national or a regional program. And I actually did some did some searching myself and certainly it's a national program, has been in the U.S. department of education, the division of academic and technical education is responsible for helping students acquire the academic and technical and employability skills to help them succeed in post secondary education and in demand careers. And the U.S. department of Ed website directs you to the Perkins collaborative resource network, where listeners can find information about your states, CTE program, and I'll of course post the link in the show notes. So I shared with you. I think in our LinkedIn conversation, a newsweek article that talks about how CTE is growing in popularity and again, it provides students with those skills to and credentials to get them directly in the workforce or prepare them for higher education. Are you noticing any enrollment shifts and on your boss's campus at all? Oh, absolutely. You know, there has been an evolution to get to what we now call CTE or career in technical education back in the day, depending on what day you were in, back in the day, it was vocational education. And it was very scripted in that vote tech was world of work. I usually know post secondary training at all. It was an either or then we morphed into occupational education, which brought more of the employability skills, the scan skills as we used to call them, and now the 21st century skills or the soft skills. And then from that evolution, we came to career and technical education, which is where we are right now, we are in it is not an either or option. Most technical fields and training fields require some advanced level of education, not always, but oftentimes it's not an end stop. Now with a pandemic and the need for what we deemed essential as essential workers, we're seeing a search in a shift in those students who are aspiring to go into health careers into the transportation sector of the manufacturing and engineering sector and all of those components we're seeing a leveling of the playing field where it's not either.

"A nerve Justin Bannon got 16 years in prison anyway But his case represents a new kind of legal battle If former athletes or others have possible brain damage like CTE chronic traumatic encephalopathy which can cause mood swings acting out even violent behavior Is that a legitimate criminal defense Bannon isn't the only one who's tested the strategy in court The trend hasn't gotten much notice but individual cases have It started as a family cruise to Alaska and ended in death Kenneth manzanares of Utah pleaded guilty to murdering his wife on that cruise ship and his lawyer asked for a lighter sentence because she said he had possible CTE from high school sports In Pennsylvania judge Thomas placey resigned after facing misconduct charges for abusive tirades on the bench And his lawyer said CTE caused by college sports concussions may be affecting his quote impulsive behavioral control This CTE made me do it approach has been used in just a handful of cases But as CTE research evolves drexel university law professor Lisa Tucker expects it to become a more common legal strategy Any good defense attorney is going to be looking for any kind of credible way to defend her client and where there is great injury that absolutely should be considered a credible way She says in hindsight this defense could have been used by former New England patriot star Aaron Hernandez I'm not trying to say that mister Hernandez should have been acquitted altogether But she argues he should not have been convicted of first degree murder because after Hernandez killed himself in prison he was diagnosed with a severe case of CTE Now many people consider this legal defense a stretch Kristen DOM's O'Connor is among those doubtful about a direct link between criminal acts and CTE As a scientist I can say that that is a gross oversimplification of what we currently know That's where my skepticism comes in She directs the brain injury research center at Mount Sinai in New York and says it would be unfair for a court not to consider whether brain trauma affected a defendant's behavior But she points out some people have CTE like symptoms yet no trace of CTE in their brains And it takes an autopsy to diagnose CTE So if you're making the case that CTE is the reason a person is behaving a certain way that's very challenging to substantiate scientifically because we can't diagnose it during life This legal strategy is usually a version of an insanity defense It hasn't been tested on many juries yet But some lawyers say it's just a matter of time before it's widely accepted After all it took a while for battered woman defense and DNA evidence to become mainstream And I think the same thing is going to be happening with CTE San Diego defense attorney Mark Carlos represented former NFL player Kellen Winslow in his multiple rape case and asked a judge for leniency due to possible CTE When we're able to examine people while they're alive I think things are going to change and people are going to realize that this is something that's very real But some judges so far appear unmoved Carlos client Kellen Winslow still got 14 years in prison The man who killed his wife on the Alaska cruise got 30 years quadruple the sentence his lawyer had hoped for Here's his public defender Jamie mcgrady I think judges honestly are a harder sell because judges are always thinking long term about protection of the community So if they think a defendant may have incurable CTE they may air on the side of a tough sentence rather than risk more violence in victims In Justin Bannon's attempted murder case in Colorado the judge gave him the mandatory minimum sentence of 16 years even though prosecutors had asked for 26 So for now CTE is an experimental defense but expect to see more of this legal strategy as CTE science develops and NFL players get increasingly comfortable talking publicly about the lasting effects of head injuries Sasha Pfeiffer NPR news Amplifying Atlanta this is 90.1 W ABE good afternoon I'm Jim bres It's a pleasure to have you along for all things considered Right now taking a look at traffic.

That del require a four year college degree. We must respond boldly can. Here's how we do that. I we need to foster career dreaming beyond elementary school middle schoolers kids grades. Five through eight are career sponges. They are curious and eager to let their imaginations run wild and it is during middle school that we must get intentional to allow students to visualize their own career outcomes second we need to drive. Strong steam instruction that begins in kindergarten.

That don't require for your college degrees third. We should establish early. Mentorships with companies in advance fields oftentimes company leadership shy away from bringing young people onto their work sites for fear of liability. But we know that when great companies adopt students as young as middle schoolers they ignite in them drive and focus necessary to create successful career outcomes and fourth. We must build a big educational stakeholder table beyond school administrators that includes community college leadership. Union training academies workforce experts elected officials and members of advance industries such as a clean energy and resource sustainability with these constituencies engaging with one another at the stakeholder table. We can make sure that. Our newest workforce members master great core steam skill.

The children of skilled tradesmen sought white-collar careers requiring specialized degrees and when that happened the united states ditched manufacturing for a service economy and we can correct that and in doing so we can make ct cool relevant and the gateway to future work.

Football: Dementia Risk Greatest for Defenders
"Think of a future where football takes place without headers. And footballs are sold in shops with a warning about the risks of dementia. This is all about the link between heading the ball and dementia in later life. Now the anecdotal link has been established for some time, but we need more science. We're told in a new study, carried out by Glasgow University has come up with some pretty fine distinctions in terms of risk factors. Let's talk with the man behind it, Professor William Stewart. So, William before we imagine football without headers. What's new about the findings that you've come up with? Yeah, So, as you say, we have suspicions for quite a while that heading a bowl. Another head impacts in sport made lead to a risk of dementia. That's because of What we've done about boxing for for many years and more recently in sports, like American football, and also in football, a particular pathology, which which we used to call dementia pugilistic and there's no but this name chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Peters and that's uniquely linked to head injury and also a couple of years ago Exploring this, we looked at deaths among footballers and found that footballers were 3.5 times more likely to die over the gentle brain disease, which we think may be related to the CT than it would expect for the population. Right. What these studies don't do is tell us necessarily affects the act of football. Or is just being a football? This is something genetically. That makes you a good footballer picture at risk of developing dementia. So this this problem in all these things? Exactly So you can establish a correlation, But you can't establish a causation. How close are you getting to the causation in your latest study? Well, what we did was we looked at it's you know, taking this hypothesis. The head injury was important and of course, head injury and impact in football. At the risk of that video is depending what position you didn't goalkeepers, for instance, don't had the bowl and have fewer head injuries and the rest of the players. So so if our hypothesis is correct, then would expect dementia rates in goalkeepers to be very low are normal. And outfield players were behind unless exactly what we saw Goalkeepers had a risk, which was pretty much the same as we've seen the population. The outfield players had a four fold higher risk of dementia and actually defenders. The position where there's most heading and most high impact training had up to five fold higher risk of dementia than the population risk.

Vincent Jackson, Former NFL Wide Receiver, Found Dead in Hotel Room
"All know Vincent Jackson former Tampa Bay Buccaneer was found dead in his apartment earlier was it it was last week. I was it last week. Yeah. Yes, it was last week and you know his family members want answers and they've actually donated his brain for a CT now they are doing this because there were things off. His I don't know mannerisms his behavior that kind of led up to this very very tragic ending for him that have people kind of scratching their heads going. This isn't normal. This isn't right. So there's got to be something here. When it comes to CTE. Yeah. So if you don't know who it's in Jackson is he was a wide receiver for the Chargers and the Buccaneers and he was thirty-eight years old took out in his way too young what really sucks about like there were just starting to get details about how he was found and everything. So apparently housekeeping came into the room. He was in a hotel in Florida and they he was slouched over on the couch. So they thought he was sleeping so they left the room and then they you know, they called in a welfare to his family called off their check cuz they hadn't heard from him for like a month. Well, I thought it was only two or three days ago. There was like a stretch where they had he was just kind of doing his own thing and they were concerned because so initially the story was at home. It was a an extended period of time and then the two were two to three days thing that you're talking about is they had talked to him and they hadn't heard from him and they were like, yeah everything seems okay clearly. It wasn't so this ESPN app states that at first they entered the room they assumed he was sleeping so they left the room and then they entered the room again later on and he hadn't moved from his spot. And so that's when they called 911 right? There are no signs of trauma injury. I mean this guy had family and kids. Oh, yeah, and that's why people know why is he staying in an extended States? Very bizarre and that's just kind of the things with CTE is that it just completely disrupts your brain patterns and just any sort of your brains deformed at that point, you know, you're you're doing things you're maybe saying things you're acting certain ways where people are like, whoa, what is going on with you, you know, and it's tremendously sad and at what point what's the solution? I mean, you know the NFL Constantly working on ways to make the game safer and taking care of their players, whether it's you know through the helmets or even like the pads or whatever go down the list of things of the technology of what their actual shooting up in to help combat that but clearly it's not working.

"Who is leading researcher at the the CTE Center at Boston? University Robert Stern. They're both driving home. The same grim story about suffering football players nor increase the school's endowment and As Merril Hodge says in his book fears winning. And it's easy to see why the sensationalist media coverage that brainwashed half the country into believing the science behind. Cte a sound has parents feel like they're putting their children in danger because they want to let their sons play tackle football. Instead of sitting on the couch playing minecraft that has a real human cost because the segment of the population that seem the most precipitous. Drop off team sports from forty six point nine percent kids in two thousand twelve to just thirty four point. Six percent in two thousand sixteen is the segment where the household income is less than twenty five thousand dollars a year so basically the lower income children are not getting involved in sports because of fear of C. t. e. so that I think there's a bunch of reasons why C. T. E. is become the narrative with the NFL and head injuries and Cussin' are concussions. You want to read some fascinating stuff like Molly said the they they found that a lot about concussions and they're six different types and they've got treatments for each one of them and they're very good at treating them. We used to think you caution you go into a room a darkroom and you lay down. They found the worst possible thing. You can do in order to give concussion. Get Those Tau proteins out of your head for building up. You have to exercise the brain. You have to do things we have to actively use your brain and depending on what type of concussion you have. They'll describe certain therapies for you but they all involve using your brain and the There's a one involves the the stimulus system where you know controls your balance and all that good stuff and you would think if you get a concussion that affects that the best thing to do would be to just kind of chill out relax. You know what they get you to do is to try to balance yourself on one foot all this you to practice and practice and practice it is basically just like when you work out a muscle. You're getting the lactic acids out of your muscle. You're flushing the system out getting this proteins addict brain. It's basically physical therapy for your brains physical therapy for your brain. So you know they felt great job with implementing that concussion protocols into the system. But we're not hearing about the good stuff all we're here's the bad stuff in the bad stuff as bad science and being done because we'd love to be scared. We'd love to have savior complexes. It's what sells. It's what sells you get that collect with Clinton babies. We've got people that want to get rid of masculinity especially what they call toxic masculinity footballers right up there at the top of that list. And then we've got the whole big tobacco NFL similarities. You know people think they're doing a good thing but knock in the NFL down but you not so we thoroughly enjoyed brainwash the book by Merrill. Hajja M Peter Comey and south highly. Recommend highly recommend that you can get it on Amazon. Their problem with questioning the current narrative. A. C. T. E. Is that you will be accused of being a Denier C. t. e. denier science denier. And that's not the case we're not saying concussions. Don't cause problems we're not saying. Cte doesn't exist. We're not saying that head. Traumas good for you. We're not even saying that You know the new rules in the NFL. The trying to reduce head traumas are bad thing. But it's a serious issue that requires very thoughtful investigation and the fearmongering doesn't help. It should be baseless on science not emotion. Facts exact facts. So if you get a chance. Pick up brainwashed brainwashed brainwashed brainwashed brainwashed brainwashed or and you can read Dr Cummings Article On. Yahoo Seems Peter. Cummings you can google an article probably GonNa put a reference on the website buccaneers observer DOT COM listing a lot of the articles. We used in reference. Here I'll put the list of investigative journalists who I feel have done a very good job at breaking the stuff down. We'll put list to the some of the studies we used but the whole thing of it is it's a great thing that the NFL is doing what they're doing. I think they're doing a fantastic job. And it's great that is being brought to the forefront and there's people looking into it there are a lot of researchers that are investigating the whole issue. It's not just Boston. University their signs around the world investigating this problem Boston. University's control the narrative. Because that's where that's where media when they want to get a quote or get some information. They always go to Boston University so they get to control the narrative in they're getting all the grant knowledge to another interesting tidbit about them controlling the narrative. Is that in the Peer Review Process? It's very political and you can request that certain people peer review your research and so- Boston University is involved in the Peer Review Process. So a lot of people especially Boston. University scientists will have other Boston University. Scientists peer review their stuff and some people are worried about publishing research that contradicts the narrative. Because it could negatively impact them professionally. Science should not be that way politico. You should have as much as possible. You want as many different theories and research studies out there as you can get but we're not getting that well we're not getting the truth about it. I mean we're we're getting a lot of good medical work but it's not getting out to the public so the Cte scare. We hope you learn something from this as long podcast. We've been wanting to do it for a long time. We actually had a combined twelve pages of notes this has been. I've been researching this sense. I would say two thousand fourteen. I've been listening to it from Ralph since about two thousand fourteen. Well two thousand fourteen. When I found my first notes that I took on it but I think I I've been following for years. Two thousand fourteen. I went all right enough of this. I'm going to start finding out what I can find out about it. Stop depending on other people to tell me what to now. So you know the take everything with the greatest song especially if it comes from Btu Or be you from their department You know there is some good signs out there but there's also a lot of really bad signs of the seems like the bad scientists white being pushed Be careful with what you could. Soon bump the media as usual and that's pretty much going to wrap it up for us to follow us on twitter check us out at bucks underscore observer..

"You GOTTA learn how to lose a good winner it's just a NFL. God when you work out. Yeah so this. Cte scare is just going everywhere. That's being promulgated by the NF by the media now the NFL has done a tremendous job in the medical community itself has done a tremendous job with concussions absolutely tremendous. I didn't know all the research has been done with this all the work that the NFL's done when we all know about the the helmet rules we know about the rules on the field about it. You know hit players and had all that stuff but they've done all kinds of stuff you know. They got the medical doctors on the sidelines. They keep players off the field from concussions. Now when you get on which we didn't know before concussions you'd need to rehab from a concussion how this was a fascinating part that there are six different types of concussions and they all each require different treatment but again there is no evidence whatsoever none Zip Nada that football causes. Cte or even the concussions caused C. T. E. or that C. T. is a progressive degenerative brain disease as everybody likes to say this. There's no there's no science behind that is none so not only do we know that. Ct is not proven to be caused by. Concussions is definitely not the leading factor. I mean there's all kinds of things that contribute to Dow proteins in the brain such as opioid use Obesity stress drinking. All kinds of stuff is all kinds of stuff that causes some of the most damaging evidence to me that the C. t. e. stop is basically a scam is and this is. What kind of Gra freaked me out? When it first started happening. His looking most announcers. I mean Chris Collins Tony Romo Troy Aikman deigned fouts. There's a ton of X. NFL players that are on TV that are thriving thriving and they all play back before. Cte was a thing. Does it tell me Roma he wasn't in the League was much more physical back then in they? They're all fine and not only. Are they find? They're doing jobs. That the average person would find very very difficult to do. I mean sitting there and talking for three and a half hours. Four hours is really hard to do and keeping track of people's names and stuff. It's it's not. It's not an easy job but the fact that retired. Nfl players as a group are healthier and live longer than the general population to me is a damning indictment of the current theory on CD. Right I have a few stats to back that up. Let me just run them off. Quick there was one thousand nine hundred four study of three thousand four hundred thirty nine players. Who played between one thousand nine hundred fifty nine and nineteen eighty eight and the players that they looked at have played for at least five seasons so there was a good threshold there they the NFL players were forty two percent less likely to develop cancer twenty percent less likely to die respiratory disease had a forty six percent lower overall mortality rate than the general population. A two thousand nine study found former football players. Were no more likely to suffer from symptoms of depression than the general. Actually I thought it was the exact opposite. I thought they were happier study. Well maybe two thousand nine study also found twenty nine percent of retired. Nfl players over the age of fifty reported bouts of anger and losing control compared to forty seven percent of the male population so less. Yeah so less likely. That's almost half right. And they were less likely to be investigated for homicide than the general population. Seventy one okay. Yeah well you probably miss this too. And the it's kind of indicative of the conversation we should be having but were not There was a study that came out in two thousand eighteen. That looked at a hundred eighty-one orthopedic surgeons neurosurgeons. Who were also the chairs of their departments. So we're not talking about just -CCOMPLISH physicians. We're talking about seriously accomplished physicians and they looked at how many of them play contact sports in high school or College. Then they compared the rate of play with the General Population. They found that orthopedic and Neuro Surgery. Chairs were more likely than the general population to have played context boards in high school and a lot more likely then to had played in college and they were also more likely to have suffered at least one concussion in their lifetime. Their conclusion is directly straight. From the report quote the high prevalence of youth contact sports. Play and concussion. Among Surgical Specialty chairs affirms that individuals and careers requiring high motor and cognitive function frequently. Play contact sports in quote so it just doesn't make any sense the whole scare behind. Ct WHAT'S GOING ON WHY. The media keeps bashing cramming it down our throats What what's the reason for? Why is it happening? I mean there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that it causes depression that it causes suicide that it's Pepsi is caused by. Repeated blows to the head the matter of fact. Here's a strange thank. The human body is very weird. It's let's call it anti fragile. If you ever read any seem to let you know what I'm talking about. He gets stronger. The more you use it the more pressure you put on it the stronger it gets. It's not fragile. It's anti fragile. It doesn't break under pressure. It gets stronger under pressure. That's the way the human body is all the human body. Is that design that away our bones. We don't use gladness space when they come back. Their bones are almost osteoporosis. Because they can't use the bone space. There's no impact the more you use your bounce the stronger they get the more you use your muscles the stronger they get. That's the way our whole body is to. Why wouldn't our brain be the same way you know? The more impacts at takes the stronger gets against impacts for sure. We look if you've ever had the unfortunate experience to fight a amateur or professional boxer. You will know. It's like getting hit with a sledgehammer. Their arms are not getting more fragile. The more they punch their bones are getting more solid third. Their muscles are getting more strong and they become better boxers by hitting stuff know. Who's to say that the getting impacts to the head whether they be For Sub. Because it doesn't make you more resilient to getting impacts to the head we don't know we're just assuming that getting impacts of the head causes neurologically. Deandre of diseases. There's no evidence at all to show this matter of fact there's been all kinds of things where people have had pipe shot through their head. That do not had any problems. We don't know whole lot about the brain you know and like you said earlier. We're not. We're not calling for women's sports especially women's soccer to be looked at and regulated the same way we are the NFL. Why is that matter of fact we're holding? Nfl Soccer Women's in NFL soccer. We're holding women soccer up on a pedestal. You know they win the Olympics. Everybody is like the best thing in the world. You didn't hear a single article about Tim. Talking about how dangerous it is for these women to be playing soccer. You know how they're probably going to get seeds killing people. So why is that? What is the reason you gotta you gotTa theories ideal? I don't WANNA say them. You don't want to sound sound. Like a conspiracy theorist I think there's a number of different reasons. I'll tell you what you say. Some of your reason I would say the biggest thing is toxic masculinity so big one. I do believe that's a big one. There is a there has been movement for a long time to get rid of any type of masculine characteristics and ration. Yes in in Westerns society. Anyhow and I think the NFL being the leading sport contacts context board is a prime target for that mentality. You know they just think that violence I I actually know this. I have a relative who is like that and she firmly believes that violence and sports is a bad bad thing. She wants to get rid of all of it. Basically supports a journal. She thinks it's stupid so when they're coming after the NHL to not quite to the degree that they are then fell but got I remember when their radar when it came after the boxing. I think it was in the eighties. They just told him F off boxing. They didn't have no time for that message. Whatever shut up get out of our face. Think another problem is the people think the NFL is big tobacco you know. We'd love to have this. David and Goliath type thing and the Big Tobacco was proven to have done some pretty bad things. And so now everybody's looking for the next big tobacco and they see the NFL As Big Tobacco Corporate Boogeyman. Yes yes yes well. The media portrays corporations and Business America as boogeyman anyhow. You which is funny. Because the media's corporate I mean Gosh Yeah. Most of the newspapers are owned by these same five companies or mega rich people in. There's also the white savior complex. You know you've got the vast majority of the NFL. I'm not sure what the the numbers are. But I think it's around sixty seventy percent might even be a little bit higher of NFL. Players are African American. And so you got a lot of people feel like they have to constantly protect African American community. You know they got to not just protect them but you know be their saviors and so they feel like a part only is helping them out here. But you're what are you gonNA end up doing is taking all these thousands of fell players who have become multimillionaires to the NFL sports. It take that opportunity away fro which is usually what happens. When you have these white sites or complexes you end up hurting more than yet and helping but then there's also the money scam can't leave that out the NFL to fund Boston University Center. But they did pull their funding from there but sources like the National Institute for Health or pumping millions in grant money to Boston University so We know what that usually ends up. You know it's hard to to say there's not a problem if you're getting paid to say there's a problem the H. awarded thirty billion per year in grants to individuals at universities medical schools and other research institutions now. When of university gets a grant about sixty percent of that money goes to university development office? That's the school's fundraising arm. The leftovers go to research. So you're looking at about forty percent of grants go to research that makes a grant a huge cash cow for universities and one of the ways to get these grants to promote your facility in your facility is publishing research papers and getting in the news when they apply for grants that are more likely to get that money. Basically grants turned private in universities like Boston University into for profit machines which is not necessarily a bad thing but the incentives do get distorted. The more Boston University. Cte Center can keep its work in the news and paint..

"Yeah well you know when you're when you remain and you get and you can't do the stuff he used to be able to do. It's like a tiny get outta here And plus all your friends had done them a depressive disorders of the second leading cause of living with disability in the United States and Canada and this crazy disability depressive disorders is the second leading cause of living with disability in the United States and Canada from nineteen ninety nine to two thousand and sixteen suicides in the United States increased by nearly thirty percent. A large portion of those suicide was not due to mental illness. But because of abuse of drugs like opioids and it was mainly among the male population in two thousand sixteen. Nearly as many people died from opioid overdoses as from suicide. So there's a lot of opioids going on out there. Well in a lot of that could be felt medication. You might theory retired. Nfl players both retired. And active. Actually use prescription opioids for pain at three times the rate of the general population. They you know these guys down these things the crazy. Yeah imagine what kind of tolerance you build up when you take it during the season right and hope we would use his known to cause deposits Tau in the brain so There's a link there now. Do you think it's possible that some of the players have killed themselves over the years did so because of opioid abuse Nazi theme or that. Some of the guys found a half. Cte might have had town brain's not because of hits to the head but because they took to excessive quantities of oxycodone. I mean blamed football. Ct for impulsive violent or suicidal acts while tipping. It's not scientific at all. There's no link no link whatsoever to see to e to depression to suicide. Matter of fact grant Arvidsson doctor at a sports concussion program at Mass General Hospital for children. He wrote a paper published in two thousand sixteen that found. Nfl players were a lot at a lot lower risk than the general population. This blew me away. I knew this but I didn't know the numbers I mean. This is by a lot. He found that only twenty six suicides out of two thousand six hundred seventy two men who have played in the NFL. Since inception I think twenty six thousand with a two thousand twenty six suicides out of Twenty. Six thousand seven hundred and two fell players since its inception. Now that that number seems low to me. It might be a little higher because we know of. Yeah I mean I might have ballooned in. The last ten years. Surprised me and we're going to get to the reason why that might be the reason why that might be happening. I mean in that paper. He writes conceptualizing suicide as being the result of small focal epicenters. Dow Are Progressive. Degenerative Topography Towel. Poverty is currently scientifically premature overly simplistic and potentially fatalistic. Now let's touch on that. A little bit fatalistic wasn't me by that? Well like you said if you thank you got. Cte One okay. So if you're looking at a life of nerdy generative failure you know you not been able to eat and talk and remember stuff like why not offer yourself. We might be seen an increase the suicides because of fear of Cte as a matter of fact we know of a fact that one did happen. Todd Hewitt retired. Nfl Player who became convinced that his mood swings and suicidal thoughts were due to see T. He took his own life in two thousand fifteen killed themselves. I mean Diony of that is that on examination. It was found that he did not have a single telltale tau protein in his brain. He did not have CTE. Now Todd's widow wanted has brain tested to see if he had to eat when he died so she sent it to the Canadian? Sports Concussion project to a researcher there and this researcher was extremely thorough. She did not see the signs of C. T. E. in the brain so hurry. Common practice was to send samples to three other labs to independently. Confirm her findings. Which is what most scientists do exactly and there are so few research centers like that. So be you got a hold of one of them. So I don't if she's Senate to be you or the widow wasn't satisfied with the preliminary results and then went back to be you later at the time of publication of brainwashed. There was no input from B. U. On this case so Merle Hodge actually put something in the book that said. You should look it up to see if maybe has come out with their because he would bet that. Be You find that there was not easy so I did a quick Google Search and sure enough b. you had diagnosed him with C. T. E. What does that say a stage or did it to say Stage two stage to see. How in the world could he have stage to? Ct and nobody else picked up on that. Boston University is the only one that could pick up on that. Yeah okay. There's some say that his wife asked request Sibi and to look at the brain if you WANNA see. Tv diagnosis. Go to Boston University. Exactly but anyhow thought that he had CD and it just scared to mess out and so he killed himself. I mean that's irony right there that the only aspect of Cte known to cost suicide is the actual fear of it. Larry Johnson. That's running back in two time pro bowler for the Kansas City chiefs. He's been arrested six times five of them for assault charges against women. He was waived by the chiefs in two thousand nine after he was suspended for conduct detrimental to the club. Whatever that means Espn did an article on him with the title. Here's the title former. Nfl running back. Johnson believes living with. That's the title now. Remember folks. You can't diagnose while you're la the only way you can do that is when you dead. Fox News. Abc News Sports illustrated Washington Post. Cbs Sports Reuters USA. Today bleacher report just about every news organization and sports outlet has carried his story where he claims the troubles in his life are due to C. T. e. remember can be diagnosed after death. He's blaming everything on. Cte without any evidence whatsoever in the media is helping him carry that water wet like Kellen winslow when he into all his legal troubles. That's what everyone was blaming. He I don't know that he was but in a lot of comments on some of the bucks forums. That's immediately what people jump to your the thought of getting CD's scaring the mess out of players and it's also giving them a basically car blunk to act any way they want to act and blame it on. C. T. E. In October two thousand thirteen article and Deadspin Matthew McCarthy a physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital wrote about encountering a former NFL player in psychiatric ward of New York Hospital. Who told him that? He was paralyzed by the fear that he was quote walking around with a death sentence over his head because of CTE has bad media stuff is getting in players heads. Michigan's Jack Miller yukons Casey cocker an Eugene. Monroe of the Ravens. Chris Borland of the forty niners. They've all quit playing football for the specific reason a fear of Cte in a guardian article. When Rose said he plans to consult with a doctor about his health but admits he has concerns for its future. He says quote the last eighteen years have been full of traumatic injuries to both my head and my body. I'm not complaining stating affect. Has the damage to my brain already been done? Do I have C. T. E. I hope I don't but over ninety percent of the brains of former. Nfl players that have been examined show signs of the disease. I am terrified in quote. He's using that bad science about ninety percent of the brains of former NFL players at Ct. And it scared it's caused the gotta quit played football now. He's living in fear Ed Cunningham. Who served as a color analyst for ABC and Espn College Football for twenty years resigned in two thousand seventeen because he could no longer support a sport which causes Cte. It's craziness it's craziness. Matter of fact. The Guy Peter Cummings. Who Helped Merril Hodge right brainwashed? He was a believer. That was horrible for football players. He wouldn't let his kids play seat. Play football until he did the research and when he read up on it that's what he got kind of miffed he was like. Wow and he knows what he's looking at when he reads these studies and because he's a neuropathologist himself right and so we're scaring parents from enrolling their kids into football where scaring players were scaring every anybody everybody involved in the NFL is just you know it's fear central. Cte is going to make everybody walking zombies how they make it out to be not in the time period between two thousand eight to two thousand and thirteen. Nearly three million fewer children have played basketball soccer track and field baseball softball and football less than one in three children between ages. Six to twelve participated in a high calorie burning sport or fitness activity three times a week. This is according to sports and Fitness Industry Association. Let's think about that for a second. One in three children between the ages of six twelve participated less than one in three so less than thirty percent of kids out. There are getting any physical activity with sports childhood. Obesity is an epidemic in America. There's no doubt about that. Obesity in generals and evidently the last thing we need to do is scare kids away playing sports. That's for sure and obesity is more deadly than concussions. By far you know so we're scared people with the east of keeping them out playing sports and they're getting fat which is more deadly than getting concussions or C. T. I love what I'm Merle. Honda's anecdotes in the book was that he was coaching youth. Football and one of his players missed because he had fallen on the playground and broken wrist. And then someone else had fallen. You know doing something else playing tag I'll say. And so he was out for a few weeks it was like he joked to his players. Okay you guys. Don't go to recess anymore because I need you to play football with us how we feel about JP hate me. Basically putting bubble wrap off season going out there getting hurt but it's tips. It just goes to show. There's danger every major everywhere but we're living in this mentality in the Western civilization that we've gotta protect everybody from everything you know. Safety is more important anything and this is ridiculous. I mean I think. The vast majority of America's mental health problems and physical health problems. Obesity in particular is due to the lack of a vomit sports and activities landfill lately. The benefits sports are astronomical. I mean not only. Do you get the physical activity you get better men of acute mental acuity team building exercises. I mean it's great for learning how to work with people Moral character built. The alert had lose.

"I mean. Sports writers sit around. They lament the poor players. Being used. By the rich owners you know media loves to portray the David Against Goliath. You know you've got movies like we mentioned before the Cut Concussion by starring Will Smith. That's about the doctor. Marlowe who first came up connected. Cte With football players. That was a movie that made him seem like an angel and the NFL was the big bad people trying to suppress his findings. That's not the case. It wasn't the case. Read up on him read up on him. It's fascinating I mean. The Guy has basically. He's out of the medical field completely. Now he's basically gone on this evangelical tour. You know. He's not practicing at all and he's been hammered by the medical community over his findings. They said the wrong he no. He's basically took advantage of stuff. No read up on. It's fascinating PBS. Frontline did a documentary called League of denial the NFL's concussion crisis which is was big news. Remember when it came out it was all over the place? You could go anywhere without hearing about how horrible the NFL was treating players There's Aaron Hernandez documentary just recently. Put out where they said that Aaron Hernandez had the worst case of ever basically try to say that he did all his he did his murders. Because of you because he played football is GonNa make you a murder. There's even speculation out now that OJ Simpson has cte. Oh for God says I know. But where's the counterargument? I mean this is all stuff presented by the media right. You got the Aaron Hernandez Documentary League. Denial documentary you got concussion the movie. Where's love aside? Okay if you are a shitty person and you want an excuse to do pants. Doing the shitty things that you do would be perfect. Yeah right exactly. We'll get to that in just a second when you're only one side of the story what you're hearing is a lie because it's always three sides to the story for dental her side and the truth exactly in but we're not getting that from the media. The president a select group of experts who benefit from their stores turned concern over into a booming industry which we talked about the beginning of this all causes become movements I'll movements become industries. Industries becomes scams. Look at remember. We had the Komen Breast Cancer Sees Susan G Komen. Breast cancer stopped for what almost thirty years in the NFL DOVEY? Twenty any army where it was like every year for a month. It was this stuff which is hammered in our face. What happens where to go. They sell breast cancer. Well besides besides the fact that we have breast cancer we found out that foundation was not on the up and up. They're spending all their money. They were spending hardly any of it on research. They were all into awareness. They were basically a marketing company. And the where there were basically a scheme so if you look at all the information skeptically as few journalists do the real equation becomes more like this head. Impact hit head impacts plus a lot of other variables plus time equals possible changes to the brain that might not ever affect a person's quality of life. I mean that's what it all boils down to because like you were saying oh beasley causes CD and look at things. Yeah and look at players. When they retire it happens all the time. They used to eating ten thousand calories a day because they are working out. They have a very vigorous. You know football playing football is hard on your body in that respect like you gotta do a lot to keep it up and then when a lot of guys retire. They still eat the same way but they're not working out the same way so wait can kind of explode. Yes and a lot of these guys. Even while they're playing or considered obese right looking at the Linemen. Yes lineman just the line and obesity contributes to Tau Proteins in the brain. Boom you know drug abuse drug use. Not even abused drug use Causes Tau Proteins. And we know opioids are prescribed very heavily. Yes I'M GONNA touch on that a little bit here in a moment so there's a lot of other variables besides head impacts that build up our proteins in the brain. We have absolutely no evidence at all that head impacts calls Dow proteins and brain none whatsoever. We have plenty of people who had thousands of hits to the head multiple cautions that have had no evidence of CT in their brain. And the we've had people that have never had any documented case of head injury then have been diagnosed with C. T. Of course this is all after death. It's only way you can diagnose. But even we compete estates on their very first line that chronic traumatic and settle supple happily. I knew I was GONNA get that wrong. Originally that C. T. is a neuro degenerative disease caused by repeated head injuries. That's the very first line. And that's the definition of C. T. e. At wikipedia. And that's not true. It's neither a nerd degenerative disease nor is it caused by repeated had injuries. There's no evidence for that at all. Now you know we like to bash media here on this podcast. We didn't. We got away from it during the season. But I think we're GONNA come strong this year for starting off good now but not all. Biya's bad Eric Attleson from Yahoo Daniel and birth slate Jeff. We'll ride at discover. Aj Russo. The Baltimore Sun. Lindsey Barton Strauss off of MOM's team dot com. They all have written really good investigative reporting on the issue. You ever get a chance. Check out some of those really good stuff. We should mention Peter. Cummings two he wrote a very high profile article on Yahoo. I forget what his title something like. I'm a green surging neurologist brain scientists and not letting my kid playful. Yeah so that's kind of what? Got Him and Merle Hodge hooked up and let's put Mahajan there too so there are good investigative journalists but they're very very very very small minority and they hardly ever get the platforms of all these sensationalist dern was give. I'd like to talk about two pretty high profile. Cte cases that were in the news that you touched on the first big one I can remember was junior sale Committed Suicide Kinda came out of nowhere. He was younger as a very sad case very popular. Nfl player to loved you. You're saying he was before my time but he seemed like a nice guy so he committed suicide they say was C. T. E. Of course what they don't say is that he was a heavy drinker. He had a gambling problem which causes stress which rain. Especially if you're losing money which are GONNA lose money if you can't. He took a lot of prescription drugs and he has some serious financial problems including that his restaurants closed two weeks before he killed himself. And that's that's absurd stress. Yeah that's a huge stretch sir. Yes so so he had you know he he. He drank which has been shown so has been shown to increase deposits in the brainiacs dress which has been shown to increase townhouses in the brains. He took a lot of prescription. Drugs was a definite shouted. Ain't I feel so yeah. There was a lot of other issues that could have possibly led to him having Tau deposits in his brains not playing football and that also have contributed to his suicide. Yes yeah let me drink. It heavily contributed Downer using your restaurant. Businesses having financial troubles is like one of the leading causes suicide. Absolutely but see. That's that's all that anyone ever talks about and then Aaron Hernandez which this one. I watch from the beginning. I remember when it happened. It was a crazy story now. I haven't watched the documentary watched too. I don't really want to give it the time of day because I think it's bullshit we we've already made a silvery judgment on it. We've never well from what I've heard from people who watched it and they've said Oh yeah he definitely had C. T. Let's talk about that for a minute. So the autopsy reports after he hanged himself in his jail cell said he had stage three and it was the most severe. Cte ever found in a person of his age and that was staged three Ct. Yes so nobody's ever had stage four now at age. Twenty seven or somebody. Who's young so if you grant that he had some severe neuro degenerative disease already if you grant them that was there any whether he was predisposed that genetically family history we don't know they just jumped to. C. T. Eve. We know that he was a heavy drug user. We know that he was young and young. People suicide is the second leading cause of death he had just had a baby and then loss of forty million dollar contract because he murdered somebody and was getting ready to spend the rest of his life in prison probably so his suicide. I think was. I won't say that C. T. E. was probably not the cause of his suicide. Okay if you fall that far. That's reason enough and that one study showed that a quarter of prisoners had had suicidal thoughts in the past year past year. Twenty five percent rank prisoners. Kill themselves right this year which I understand that I mean didn't lose a forty million dollar. Nfl contract and you know we're getting ready to miss out on their baby's life and you know so to say everything. Aaron Hernandez's dead was excusable are caused by C. T. I think is just irresponsible. There's absolutely zero evidence non Nada Zip vet. Cte Causes Depression. This is another one of those narratives that's created by the media that's not supported at all anyway by science it's not just a fabrication. It's dangerous to think that away because if someone had does have depression and they blame it on. Cte or they can blame it on C. than third removing their ability to correct it. You know and that's a problem. I think that we have a lot in. America may be worldwide as we are giving people external reasons for their their problems. Prov what we're making it so people are having all these issues and especially mental health. Now there's and we're we're not we're not giving them the ability and the power to correct it and once you take away hope and self control from people they die and this those studies are fascinating to you. WanNA RAISE FASCINATING. Studies read studies on. Ap Take Away. People's ability to have self could What's the word control? Say Self Agency. Yeah to be able to do things for themselves. They will die. They would just die. They've done with rats. You take rats the ability for them to control their environment in their movement and stuff that they will literally just die. Humans need to feel empowered nineties. Our they feel they have to feel like there's hope and you put cte in somebody's head either literally or figuratively. You take away. That hope changes are they're going to kill themselves Thirty point six percent of men will report an episode of depression their lifetimes hadman eighty five and older have the highest rate of suicide among all men.

"Donate their family members brains to Boston University to be studying and a vast majority of those are collected from either college or professional players but that's not representative of the majority of football players.

There's no telling the differences in those brains but that's not being studying now be you. Has This brain bank and they are very possessive of their samples. I'll talk about that in a minute.

Unfortunately none of Boston University stuff is would you say transparent and all they don't share their data they're not transparent law in nobody can replicate their findings. But it's his damning. There is a study in twenty-six team by Canadian neuro pathology and they studied one hundred and eleven brains people ages six eighteen to six steve according to the B. U. Staging System Day found C. T. E. in only four and a half percent of the brains but when they expanded their criteria to include any signs of Towel. Because again there's no stage one. There's no floor. The number of ballooned to thirty five point. One percent of the brain's now in that study a major predictor of C. T. E. was head trauma and Substance Abuse Substance Abuse again. Only two of the brains that they found the C. T. E. N. Were in contact sport and one of the brands who the person played football in high school had no C team. Yes almost all research analysis done outside of Boston. University COMES TO THE CONCLUSION. That really is not that big thing or if it is it's not necessarily caused by hits to the head or you know it's not been established how you get C. T. now there was that big study you know. The sub concussive in packs remember okay. That's the one that started making. Everybody think offensive lineman and defensive Lineman were probably the worst with. Tt's right and then they said soccer players probably have C. t. e. because they had the ball. Yeah which I think is. Britain has totally banned youth. Soccer from doing headers now really reduce well when they came out without study again. There's no floor. We don't know how much force it takes. Two 'cause this sub concussive hits so Merle Hodge actually says in the book you can have a vigorous pillow fight and have some impact right now. White matter changes in these brains that supposedly had the sub concussive impacts were also found in people with learning disabilities who were obese. Who had diabetes had a low socioeconomic status adhd and also endurance athletes. There have been studies on this Upton cuss impacts and one study which looked at the other study of studies. You know how like the revenge found that studies on these up can custom impacts where Phyllis sources of biased including improper control of errors in inappropriate controls. And another two thousand. Eighteen paper found that the evidence was weak and there again as we mentioned was no way to determine the minimum threshold for what produces a sub king of impact a 2016 study from the UK studied thirty two young soccer professional soccer players but found no significant quote no significant neurological structural brain imaging or Nora's psychological change from heading the ball so despite that the UK has been heading so there are theories as to what could cause these town deposits on the brain and as Ralph has mentioned. There's a lot of other variables that can impact it. I love the inflammation theory is what makes so much sense us. Well back my science exactly so when you get a hit to the head you have an inflammatory response just like you would any other time. You know if you cut your finger or you get a bruise. Your Body Reacts Your Immune System to try to heal this injury so what happens to the brain. Is that your nerve cells release neurotransmitters and potassium and the take in calcium ions and they've reduced energy production. Which is which is interesting. Because there is a calcium theory for Alzheimer's now you are basically neurons. Are Council fine so that Kinda stuck out to me with that but your cells they start breaking down glucose to try to provide energy to the cell so it can start repairing itself if you get hit again in the head. Before you've had a chance to recover you can enter into chronic inflammation and that's where the problem is. Our diets can actually make us be in a constant state of inflammation so with a lot of sugar high processed foods. And there's even research that shows that an inflammatory immune response called. Immuno exit Ta City. I know I don't think I Senate race that might be the cause of degenerative neurological problems. So basically what happens is that you've got these toxins in your brain and they're emitted during this inflammation response and you need blood flow to your brain to one provide oxygen to your brain but also to carry those toxins out and if that's not happening then they're stuck in your brain in 'cause all these degenerative issues down. Deposits unchecked buildup in the brain can cause neurological malfunctions in town. Cumulation is part of what causes diseases like Alzheimer's with drug use anabolic steroid use obesity. Chronic inflammation chronic stress. They all build up talent. Deposits in the brain head traumas. Not The single factor. Stress was really an interesting one to me. Yes yes stress is very very bad for the body you want to read up some scary stuff news at look up. Uh Stress Research. Look Kill. You couldn't either. Yeah keeping your body because your body your whole body becomes inflamed basically now obesity is a big problem and chronic inflammation and UCLA. Some research they actually took 'em is of players that were experiencing mood and cognitive problems. Those with the most problems also had impaired blood flow to the brain they. Here's the control. The age and gender matched the players with healthy ones in the same age range. Gender said they had a comparison between the two so basically the whole group of these players had this impaired blood flow with the exception of a backup quarterback Ron Griffin Fan. Right eight eighteen out of one hundred had dementia in the age range of twenty five to eighty two. My guess would be. They were probably on the out of range of that. Yeah higher than the national average twenty eight per cent had clinical depression which is three times. The national average eighty one percent scored abnormally on a focus and attention tests and forty eight percent were obese which increases the risk of neurodegenerative diseases thirty percent of had sleep apnea which that can dove Asher in with obesity a lot of obese people have sleep apnea after an doubles your risk for Alzheimer's. I mean it makes sense. You're sleeping you don't get any oxygen to the rained. Need oxygen and blood flow to the brain to carry out this inflammation correct the same region researchers they compared that if players who were overweight or obese to those with the normal weight and compared their brain function again matching them by position in age and those that were overweight or obese based on their weight to height ratio apparently a better way to measure than BMI for guys outside had poor cerebral blood flow to the front and temporal lobes now these are areas where C. T. E. is commonly found in that funny swing that same. Ucla team in two thousand eleven study found a connection between BMI reduced blood flow to the brain and negative impact on behavior. Another study that they did. They've done some great studies here. Yeah found that players with the body. Mass in overweight category also had impaired blood flow to areas of the brain controlling attention reasoning and executive function and severe cognitive impairment. A two thousand sixteen study. I don't think from the same group but I could be wrong. Compared a group of overweight players to normal weight players and they found that the overweight players had reduced blood flow to thirty six regions of their brains. Thirty six regions. That's just crazy okay. So basically what we know is that is diagnosed after death by Tau Proteins in the brain clusters of these proteins brain as basically all we. Now that's basically all we know but if you want to read articles or listening to the media you would think they pretty much have this stuff nailed down I. I'm not sure if you've heard of the I think the county jail man in Asia fact that it goes something like this. This is Michael. Crichton came up with it. He said you open the newspaper to an article on some subject. You know well you read the article and you see. The journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. This happens to me all the time. You know being a computer programmer. I don't think I've ever read an article or a movie. That portrays a computer programmer. In any way shape or form has computer programs are made. It's why you can't just hack into a streetlight. No well I can't but I'm not GonNa say that out loud because I probably get no. I can't do that. Nobody can do that. Stupid on. Camera and seven eleven. Kamer anywhere. I Hank you you know you read the article and see. The journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues often articles so wrong in actually presents the story backward reversing causing effect in any case you read with exasperation or amusement multiple errors in a story that you're familiar with the subject matter and then you turn the page and read is is the rest of the newspaper somehow more accurate than the. Baloney you just read. Basically you turn the page and you forget what you know. That's the Dow Man Amnesia effect with a articles. Well I read about the CTO stuff all the time in the papers and it really really bothers me because they get it so wrong now there are only about three hundred documented cases of CTO in the entire world. That was at the time of publishing of brainwashed. I think in two thousand sixteen yes sixteen eighteen. I'm sure there's more now but there can't be that the point still the same. There is three hundred documented cases of Cte entire world. There are more New York Times story about. Cte than there are documented cases of CDs. And just in New York. Let's just the New York Times that just blows my mind right now. We know that there is zero evidence whatsoever. Nuns it not of the concussions. 'cause CTE no evidence none. There is no scientific evidence. No peer reviewed papers nothing. Nothing but it doesn't stop the media. It doesn't stop these people from constantly pounding away and our beloved sport and it seemed like all the media's against the NFL sports writers. I mean. Sports writers sit around. They lament the poor players. Being used. By the rich owners you know media loves to portray the David Against Goliath. You know you've got movies.

"Which will get into in a minute is the big C? T. E. Program. That has really been at the forefront of this cause and in two thousand fifteen a panel of experts met to come up with diagnostic criteria for C. T. e. It was supposed to be preliminary and they looked at ten handpicked brains that they agreed where stage three and stage four. Ct again there was no stage. One or stage two brains. It was just these ten stage three or four so they develop a criteria based on these brains and that was it. That's all the top end. I've actually emailed Peter. Cummings who was the CO author of brainwashed with Merril Hodge? Yes if you want to read some good information on CD and the current concussion crisis going on in the NFL across the country not just with NFL. Boyd Youth football and all that good stuff read brainwashed by a Merril Hodge. If you don't know who Merril Hodge. Was it used to be running back for the Pittsburgh steelers? He had to leave football because of a concussion. Multiple cut cushions. He received a tells a great story. He's been through it. He's been there. He's done that and he's actually girl in the League now trying to deal with concussion protocol how they handle concussions within the League yes yes which. We'll get to that in a moment because I found that stuff fascinating. But it's a fantastic book it's brainwashed by Merrill hoj Hodge. I used to watch Merril Hodge. Roger Ski they were my favorite to watch on WANNA say? Espn is back way before the NFL network they used to do. They are the ones that actually got me into looking at game film. The only ones that let the game film they would demurrage always so serious but he had. He was so good at explaining things on screen with all twenty two which is fascinating. But he's he's the one that got me into that cash. How is the world did I become a buccaneers family? Merril Hodge Hardy Nickerson. Leo's Big Lynn. Swann fan growing up. I should have been Pittsburgh steelers. Ask to stay so they meet a these. Bu People meet they study brains from be used files they cherry. Pick THE BRAINS. And that's what they've used for this diagnostic criteria. They should have met. They were supposed to me again. This was a preliminary meeting and as I was saying before Ralph Free Leaner up to me with his tangent. I emailed the CO author. Peter Cummings who was also a neuropathologist at B. U. But he's not in the that program to see if they had met since the publishing of the book. Now I haven't heard back from him. I will let you know but from my search. I don't think that they have the ham and typically in this diagnostic criteria staging. They do it for a lot of different diseases. So what do you get the whole community to stab wish? What's going to be the diagnostic criteria? They have not done that with C. Ever ever so for comparison. They recently did this for Alzheimer's and they had multiple panels. They posted the results. Online of these panels is consensus was open transparent worldwide. I mean this was open to everybody across the world who had input on and they took feedback based on what people read online. They revised their criteria. And that's how they established the diagnostic criteria. That's never happened for C. Read Boston University has basically been control of the narrative. From the get-go. It's a problem because a lot of these symptoms with a cat overlap with other neurodegenerative diseases so there's no unique features separating. Cte from any other disorder. Another problem with the science is that the way that CT cases are reported. It makes it seem like when there are other neurodegenerative disease is present in a brain that show signs of Cte. The language in the report makes it sound as though the is causing other diseases says where this initial meeting and from Bu had said when other neuro degenerative diseases that are present. You're supposed to exclude Cte. But that's not actually what happens in these reports now. Everyone's heard the study one hundred and ten brains of a one hundred eleven that they studied found signs of Cte NFL players NFL players. Yeah this is the one that the media loves. They love this one ninety nine percent of brains everywhere. Did you know that they only studied the brains that were donated by family members? Where the deceased had move behavior or cognitive problems. There was no control group whatsoever sell. They didn't have a group of normal brains where there weren't any of these problems to see how they compared the authors of the study actually said in the paper that it was a bias study. They admitted it themselves is right there in Amtrak. It's like you walk into an Alzheimer's Brain Bank. Study those brains in say. One hundred percent of people have Alzheimer's ages doesn't make any sense without the control group to compare it to your results are really meaningless. In plus they use the low threshold of the stage one that they establish themselves which basically all you probably have listened to the podcast. You probably would be diagnosed with. Cte Stage one by Boston University right now because they would look in your head and find some of these proteins which everybody has almost everybody. In these hundred and ten brands fifteen had stage one or two and their average age at death was forty four. The other ninety five that showed signs of C. T. Were staged three or four. And their average age at death was seventy one now. It might be normal as we age towel proteins to develop so the fact that the average age of these older brains showed that backwards. The old arrange showed more severe. Ct It makes sense because as you age you may developed helper teens. Another glaring issue with the science is that they don't study women's brains which was discovered with pharmaceuticals that it's a problem. When pharmaceutical companies don't test on women as well as men because our physiology is different and pharmaceuticals can impact you differently. Yes they found that women recover from concussions differently than men. Do you just like children recover from concussions differently than adults? Do a two thousand seventeen study found that women soccer actually has the highest rate of concussion and traumatic brain in brain injury of any sport. But you don't hear that the news. It's all football. I don't hear anybody calling for women's soccer to be banned. Many of the study is rely on self reports or the reports of loved ones as to a patient's mood or conman of decline and a lot. These studies do show an increased risk of cognitive disorders as adults if the children start for ball earlier. That's the one where the earlier you start. Football the more likely. You are and have cognitive decline later. But when studies actually used a accepted test of your neurological function and they get a baseline of these kids and then they test them later to see how their baseline is impacted. There's no decline so when the relatives are reporting or they're reporting mood issues cognitive problems than they're saying. Oh that correlated to your participation in this contact sport but the actual scientific test don't show this other studies don't.

"Good service already. Now we're going to touch on some stuff little bit concerning the media but we want to talk about. Ct THE NEW CBA is coming out there. Wanting seventeen games a lot of people are saying. They don't want more football because they don't want players to get injured. Injury has been a huge issue over the past decade C. T. has been at the forefront of everybody's thoughts on this aspect. Well one start this off by saying that me and my we're not experts. Neither one of us are medical doctors. Neurosurgeon Path ALLERGIST FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST FORENSIC. There are none of that stuff. Were just regular people but we have been following this very closely since the inception. And we've got a lot to say. This is going to be quite a hefty podcast and we hope everyone will learn something today. Yeah if nothing else to lot whether you agree with us you know you're GonNa learn something from this. We were talking about the media and we're going to cover the media to a great extent here with the C. Two East but we there's a phrase that sticks with me is stuck with me and I kind of apply to most everything that I see pop up on the world stage. The original quote is by Eric. Hoffer book the temper of our time. He says every great 'cause begins as a movement becomes business and eventually degenerates into a rack. It the way it is causing become movements movements become industries industries becomes scams. That's how I say I look at things and I've always felt with. Ct that there was. It moved to fast for one The HOOPLA behind it and then also when I saw how he the media reacted to it. I knew there was something. Little little fishy there. So first let's break down. What exactly is c? T. E. A. Cat is chronic traumatic encephalopathy. It is a it's diagnosed as a disease but that's the bet. It was well but it can only be diagnosed after death as a stands right now. The only way a person can be diagnosed with having. Cte is through an autopsy autopsy performed on the brain and of course that can own have after death now. The Way C. T. is diagnosed when there's a protein called Tau which forms clumps in the folds of the brain. Now this is a very very very microscopic thing very small you could only see it with scope and its little clusters of proteins called Tau now. Cte became the football catchphrase. Went in two thousand and five Bennett. Oh Malu first reported. Finding a new tau protein in Pittsburgh steeler Mike Webster's autopsy after he'd had a heart attack at age fifty. Now Mike Webster had had Problems for a long time with this mental health. His physical health again all kinds of issues so when he died of a heart attack at fifty as family wanted Dr Bennett. Amal to look at it now takes credit for finding in naming the disease but it was originally named and studied in boxers in the nineteen twenties. It was called. Dementia Pugilist Ika. And the seminal work on the disease came from the British neurologist MacDonald critchley is a British name. I ever heard one he and I nine hundred forty nine wrote a paper entitled Punch Drunk Syndrome the chronic traumatic encephalopathy of boxers. Now if you want to read up on some serious drama and some I don't WanNa say scammy stuff. Let's say a sketch personalities read up on Dr Malu. The Guy who claims that he visited her that he found it he definitely is the one who gets credit for bringing it to the forefront of the NFL's issue we're dealing with nowadays. He's he's the first one to find it in an NFL player was put that away. He's also the one that will Smith played in the movie. Concussion which we'll talk about a little bit at Boston. University has a concussion. Research Center that deals with C. T. E. almost exclusively. Actually now. They've developed what they call his four stages of Cte this is something of their own making. It's not established to go out the medical community at all. I'm going to go into more depth on this in a minute. Yes. We're GONNA talk about Boston. University quite bit The four stages of Cte the first stage is if you even have one of these tau proteins in your brain. As a matter of fact they don't even have a floor for stage one huge problem. It's a huge problem Basically all have how proteins in our brain we all have these little clusters at least a few of them. I mean if you take our brains apart and you go through them with the microscope. You're gonNA find some of these dow clusters in there so when you hear statements such as player's brain showed signs A. T. Cte. That's basically what they're saying is that they found some of these tau clusters or not. You know they're not saying they're advanced that it was with all of their brain or did they had any issues whatsoever. They're just basically saying that they found some of these dow closes. Would you could find in almost every healthy brain when you hear say. They've showed signs of it or they had stage one. Ct which is what what they mean when they say showed signs of it if they if they have three or cd all they say that but they say they showed signs of it or they say they found signs of Ct. Dinette generally means it's stage one or stage two which is the same as healthy brain. But we'll get into that layer. So that's what is now. How did this become an issue? How did CTE become an issue with the NFL? Now we talked about Dr Malibu who found the first evidence of Cte in an NFL player with that was in two thousand and five basically. This all started because of a lawsuit by a bunch of lawyers in a class action suit against the NFL. Now there are many firms involved in this class action lawsuit but Seger wise law for has been designated as the Class Council which means they are the big daddy though. The one is giving all the money they've received one hundred ten million dollars from the settlement already In the original class action suit there were forty five hundred players or their estates involved now. This was a typical class action lawsuit. I don't know if you've ever gotten it in the mail where out of nowhere you'll get a letter saying. Hey look. We're a were doing class action lawsuits against Ibuprofen if you take an IB proof in the past twenty years. Signed this thing and you'll be part of the class action lawsuit and you'll receive part of the settlement has exactly what this was. They had forty five hundred players. Originally they ended up with twenty thousand five hundred fifty three basically every single player that played in the NFL since the inception of the NFL. Now if you want some drama go follow the case. It's really really fascinating The seger Wieslaw for a bridge just recently been appointed. I think within the past couple of years as the case council removing all the lawyers from the case and The main lawyer. I can't remember his name wise. I think it might be seger cigarettes. He blew through ninety percent of his fees in two years. He blew through over a hundred million dollars in two years. Now this was this was supposed to be a sixty five year settlement. His fee is supposed to handle the players for sixty five years. He's blown through ninety percent of it already extravagantly He's being charged right now for steering multiple ex players receiving settlement proceeds to a bank for interest charging advances on their settlement proceeds. Who He didn't tell them he just happened to be on the board of. There's all kinds of stuff that goes on with us. I mean it is crazy crazy crazy when you look into but the interesting thing of this says they put in a brief. They put it in this class. Action suit now when lawyers put in suits and briefs and all this good stuff it doesn't have to be truthful. Trials exactly the brief to the core. And you say this. These are arguments and then once it makes it to trial. That's where the judge or the jury can decide on the merits of the case. Right and it's up to the opposing side to dispute the facts in the the argument. Well the lawyers for the plaintiffs the the class action lawyers. They put forth this brief. And that's where all the media got. All their information from to start with this case never went to court. It was settled out of court after a number of years So the media is only had the players lawyers briefs in evidence which was never disputed in court and they've been using that as statement of fact they did from day one and up to now. They're still using that. The lawyers evidence as statement of fact when it has never gone to trial and almost all of it was bunk. Well I think a lot of people assume that when a party elects to settle a case that means that the case against them as true you would think but that's not true matter of fact it's not true in the vast majority of settlements especially insurance claims and stuff like that. It's just it's just not worth the trouble right. It's GONNA cost more to fight it than it would to just pay us not domenico bright in the NFL settled for seven hundred and fifty six million dollars and this is supposed to be sixty five years settlements of The the NFL. We don't know the reasons behind it. Are you know. I'm not trying to visit their intentions or anything but it was a lot of media pressure on them know against the NFL for this stuff and it mathematically make sense you know that seven hundred fifty six million dollars over sixty five years. That's a good deal for them. So that's brave. Putt for these arguments and the public and the media. They've been reporting on it originally now. Originally there wasn't a whole industry behind the CD. A totally new thing. It was only basically brought up in two thousand and five in the settlement happen. I mean the the suit happened. I think I'm not real sure. I should look this up but I wanNA say two thousand nine two thousand ten and that's win. This whole industry popped up. There was not a whole lot of information. Ct before then. I mean there have been studies on boxers and things of that nature but this was a whole totally new area but it became the new buzzword. Yes and you think of the think of are all these neurodegenerative diseases and basically men become vegetables because they've had too many hits to the heads. Alzheimer's Partisans Age mental illness depression suicidal thoughts. Here's what we know about C T E it's the accumulation of talent the brain that is that's what's been established by science right. That's that's not say anything else. Such as saying we that we can identify. Cte Is the accumulation of Tau in the brain boom. That's it that's it. We don't know what other factors have an impact on town. The brain leg drug use smoking. Obesity chronic inflammation. We don't know why. It accumulates on the brain. We do know that those things 'cause tell buildups in the brain. Obesity drug use which includes steroids opioids are very big and causing ct or this towel buildup in the brain. Obesity is a big one too. We don't know why. It accumulates on the brain some people are susceptible to at some people aren't so some people can get in the head one hundred times and not have any and some people can never sustain ahead to the head and they have it on the brain. That's right there's people with known severe and repeated head trauma that have absolutely no towel or C. T. and there's people with known head known head trauma ever that have been found to have Tau Anti AG- nosed. Cte Due to any of these number factors opioid abuse being one of the big ones and obesity. But inflammation on the brain. Which I'm GonNa talk about the inflammation theory in just a second. Ralph mentioned the staging issue so Boston University..

"The data states Six hundred ninety three adults across the country were polled but it didn't state if they were. Nfl fans are not so me. Being the person I am and knowing from anecdotal evidence every single person. I know that watches. Nfl IS ECSTATIC About having another game. All I haven't met a single person. That's not even did that. Same Beverly Notable of course. So you know I'm like this can't be right. There's gotta be something wrong here so I emailed the university. I E mailed Marty Appel for clarification and I asked him. I said of all the people. Y'All polled did y'all specifically ask them if they were NFL fans or if they didn't have anything to do with sports and do you have any data on that. Well they were very kind and gracious and they sent me back a bunch of data and replied stating that fifty one percent of the respondents about three hundred forty. Six of the people polled said. They follow sports closely or very closely. No mention of the NFL or football specifically so that means forty nine percent of them didn't follow sports at all fifty one percent of them followed sports but not necessarily the NFL he has they had no data whatsoever on how many of these people polled are NFL fans but the title of the Article Is University poll shows only thirty one percent of NFL fans in favor of seventeen game season. I am shocked that the media would mislead housing like this. It is it is totally mind blowing. I don't know if this ever happened before. And that's been syndicated so most most people that have read this or listen to this podcast. It probably seen this article somewhere because it was syndicated nationwide. So why would the media do that? Profootballtalk they posted a twitter poll asking about the seventeen game season and it generated more than fifty six thousand votes actually fifty six thousand three hundred sixteen if they said with more than sixty two percent of those who responded saying they don't want a seventeen game season. I found it funny. They said sixty two percent because the actual figure is sixty two point one percent but they said more than sixty two percent technically true. That's then just take them out of there and that's a ridiculous to say more than sixty two percent yes it was sixty two point one percent and then they go on to say that left fewer than thirty eight percent which it was actually thirty seven point nine percent. That's just that's just tricky stuff. That's playing with numbers. I hate that crap. They said that left fewer than thirty eight percent in favor of the expansion of the season from sixteen games to seventeen now one. This is a twitter poll. There is absolutely no way to stop anybody from voting multiple times to. We have no idea that these people are NFL fans three. I read the comments on this poll when they put it up and almost everybody comments was like Why are we even asking? This is a stupid question. Of course we want more football. You know people were like I'd have football every week. I'd have to get into your for good very few comments. And who said that? They didn't agree with having more sixteen games when they did. It was because of injuries. You know they were like. I'm worried about injuries to the players so I'd rather just keep it at sixteen. They said thanks such as if it's not broke. Don't fix it but the vast majority of people that commented were like this is a silly poll. Everybody wants seventeen games. They want more football. So this has been touted throughout the media's well matter of fact. Here's here's a quote from an article it's actually from the NBC sports article IT'S A. It's a somewhat surprising outcome especially given the gradual sense of inevitability that has emerged in recent months regarding the move to seventeen. But here's what also shouldn't be surprising the NFL won't care about this or any other poll. The League has decided to find another place in the pizza to cram cheese the league will be putting it on the menu and we will be eating it eventually. Seventeen will become eighteen again. It feels inevitable and ongoing expansion of legalized gambling. Makes it even more likely? Now here's the part that I found very telling he says there's too much money to be made by having another two weekends of games on which to wager regardless of concerns about player safety or in opposition or anything else other than the basic exercise of capitalism in quip folks. The media is being manipulative with this crap. We're going to get into some serious issues here in a second about the media but with this issue in particular there skewing stuff. They're wanting people to think that player that fans don't want seventeen games which is malarkey every fan. I know once more football the media loves doing this. They love doing this. They loved playing. The David Goliath the speaking truth to power the oppressor oppress thing. They feel like the NFL's trying to cram down everybody's throat this is how they're portraying it. They're trying to cram it down. Everybody's throats greed greed capital gambling and Thir- giving a platform to the players who are against the CBA. They're not giving a platform to the players.

It's like the Thomas Question it's like. Do you like chocolate like chocolate off the chocolate chocolate three times a week if you can eat chocolate five times a week without Dana White would you? Yeah that's why don't you eat more chocolate? Well because it makes me gain weight you know. Why don't you watch more football well because there isn't any more football? Would you like to have more football? Yeah it's ridiculous is media doing this. What's going on what is going on well before we get into that. Let's pay some bills real quick.

"cte" Discussed on Buccaneers Observer
"Phillips Today Is March Ninth Twenty Twenty one hundred eight days until buccaneers kickoff. Yeah it's better than it was yesterday. Eighty nine now. We always do the countdown to the kickoffs think last year we did the countdown to the NFL. Kickoff this year at the kickoff. Because it's only kickoff and care about the holy kickoff matters is the buccaneers podcast. It's been a while we've taken a little break but we are back on track this intense podcast they've got a little bit of Buccaneers News Warwick cover and some other stuff league-wide and then some other stuff that probably GonNa make some people upset first off when it gets into some follow ups in fact checks follow up who is the player representative for the new. Cba vote we asked and the answer is Allie. Pet CO alternative. Number one is Lavar. Hey David Cole. Alternative number two is Bo Allen and never went against any of those you know I knew it was Alamar pet but I didn't know I didn't know well enough to recall it Sherry remember hearing it likely story follow up. Monte Kiffin is currently player personnel analyst. At Ole Miss for his son Lane. Kiffin semi-retired probably. Yeah but he's not coaching at. He's a player personnel analysts. Whenever that means scout he analyzes player personnel. Got a little bit books news going on according to Greg off of the Athletic Dot Com. The bucks are not going to tender offensive line Michael Key. I didn't even know that he was maybe possibly going to be tendered. I forgot he was even on the team. If he's been there for quite a while played last year he got hurt. I know he played like Like six or seven games year before if I recall correctly which follow up if I'm having to recall things that's probably not. But yeah he's going to be an unrestricted free agent now so we need to get some more depth Our Line we'll probably end up signing later in the offseason interesting little tidbit at the combine. There is a women of the NFL combine event that happens every year. The buccaneers found out about it. It wasn't a part of their program or anything and the they quietly showed up and picked up the entire bar tab for all the women. They cited wanting to support women in American football at every level. Possible as the reason now. The buccaneers are very active with women in football causes. Thanks to Darcy Darcy. Who The glaser are. You might be people listening. Don't know who Dr Seuss is okay. Tampa was supposed to be both to hold the NFL consumer product. Some this week. It was supposed to happen for Monday to Wednesday in Tampa but then fell postponed Basically due to the corona virus interesting yeah so Tampa missed out on that. Don't know if it's GONNA be rescheduled or if they're just not going to do it this year. I am guessing that does not going to do it this year. But that's a big event for all the vendors and a lot of businesses in areas. Well some and hurts a quarterback's hurt and a lot of stuff. Which brings me to an interesting question if this continues on is the NFL. Going to be playing an empty stadiums because it's happening around the world where teams are playing an empty stadiums. Because no one wants to go out though. Because I won't let people come to the game out of quarantine all the cortines. Yeah so if this if this carries on into September October we might see televised games with no fans in the stadiums. How weird would that be? I remember when they did. They had no announcers. There was no color commentary. Anything they just had background noise and all that that was a real shock to the system. It was weird. Why didn't have any there? Were just testing it out to sea ACAS. A lot of people were complaining. Me being one of them about half in the list I turn the sound down off. You know because. I don't like listening to the announcers but this would really be a shower. Could you imagine that seem an NFL? Football team play in a totally empty stadium. Jacksonville Jaguars same thing shots. Florida team will enter for Molly. I didn't say the bucks so they probably say the same thing about us. I've got some news as far as the NFL Players Association. They are electing a new president tomorrow. Tuesday march tenth. The current president is Eric Winston of the Cincinnati Bangles now to be an NFL player association. President you have to be in the NFL. You have to be an active player. Well they've got four nominees that have been announced. Previously there was only one nominee that was announced that was Russell. Oh Kong now. We know of all four of them one is Michael Thomas. Not Michael Thomas New Orleans saints but the giants I think. He said he was the safety. Jc shredder Russell Kong. And our very own. Sam Acho linebacker for the Tampa Bay buccaneers. He might be the president for the NFL Players Association. How awesome would that be? That would be cool. I kind of thrilling lobbying for the new. Cba that's right. He's the only one of the four that come out in favor of the new. Cba DEAL Russillo Kong. Michael Thomas voted. No not sure what. Jaycee tried voted. Oh wait a minute. Yeah I did because I read his summary on twitter and you could tell by his summary that he is not a big fan of CBS. Which brings us to the GET SEGUE IF. You're not familiar. The collective bargaining agreement off of also known as the CBA is negotiated between NFL Players Association. And the owners of the NFL is to decide how to divvy up. Compensation how many games are going to be played basically all the rules it administration aspects of the NFL this year. There's a lot of big changes coming. One of them is. The owners are wanting seventeen games. Now there's been a lot of Mumbling amongst the players as to whether they want to do this or not. Some are in favor of some of them aren't in favor. The ones that aren't in favor I think are being a lot louder than the ones that are are in favor. But Bruce Areas brought up a good point in his press conference at Combine. He said he doesn't care. He said he'd look. He's he's labor. He just does what they tell him but his big question is who's going to get two extra home game which is a really good that I had seen brought up before I had not thought about that. And you know a seventeen games is an odd number. So somebody's going to get half. The team is going to plays half. The teams are going to get an extra home game. And how are they going to figure that out? Or are they gonNA play on neutral territory will go to a opposing field opposing teams field targets right now. Talking about maybe. Afc gets extra one one year and the next year tate on and even years. I'll tell you I think it's a seventeen games ain't gonNA work and that leads us into the next segue some. Nfl owners of hope that this CBA does not pass because they want eighteen games not seventeen games and that would solve the odd hung. Were solved them now. Only seventy five percent of the owners were needed to vote yes in order for the CBA to be approved before the vote is passed to the players. Like I said not. All owners voted yes and has reported that some of them did not vote. Yes because they want eighteen games now. The players have until Saturday that was extended. Today it was GONNA be Thursday but it's extended the Saturday march fourteenth. This is what the fourth extension they've done with this thing now and there's about nine thousand nine hundred members in the players union and they just need a simple majority so eight hundred one or not even math. That was bad math. Nine hundred fifty one here we go. I didn't even have to use a calculator so they just have to have a simple majority now. Some of the owners do not want this. Cba to be passed so that they can go back to the negotiating table and put eighteen games back on this list. At Seventeen Games is not going to do the trick. Why would I think I think at this point players whenever meltdown if you tried to give them eighteen games but in this new CBA? I thought that they were gonNA throw in an extra by week. But they didn't that's for the eighteen game measure so anyhow but we don't know anything until this gets approved and if it does get approved go back to the bargaining table and it's not going to be the same. Cba again coming out. One of the things they did do in this new. Cba They remove suspensions for testing positive for marijuana and instead replaced them with fines The first time you get busted popped marijuana. I think it's a half a game check. And then the second time you get popped. It's a full game check and then the third time to get popped. It's a two game checks. It's it's out there somewhere. So as Josh Gordon GonNa be reinstated. Josh Gordon's happy about this. But he ended up playing for free all year because he would he would every single game check because it keeps going up until I think it's around the seventh offense than they suspend you so you got up to seven point and he would have to forego long enough to get a paycheck so that he can buy more weed issue. Which I think almost everybody agrees with this. I even test for it seriously. Did it has for alcohol if you are in the Substance Abuse Program. Yes if you're in phase two then they test for alcohol but alcohol is stays in the system for twenty four hours waiting to see if you can positive for another or if you put yourself into the Substance Abuse Program. So why do they have? The marijuana is probably because some of the owners or somebody connected with the. Nfl makes a lot of money off of these tests. Because why even having why even have marijuana I think it's a relic of half time. I mean that's all I read in the last five years that marijuana has become kind of mainstream and attitudes about it and have changed true now back in my day we call it the wacky weed reefer madness and their parents know allowed propaganda movie. I showed reefer. Man This to my kid go okay and a lot of the players. They're asking the same question. Why is marijuana even being tested? So you know the kind of happy with the new thing that you're not going to be suspended for it but they're not happy with the seventeen games now that some of the players we don't know how many players here's an interesting thing. The media is twisting Opole by Seton University about the extension of NFL Games. What they did is Seton. University pulled a bunch of people and they found out that only thirty one percent of the people polled agreed with extending the season to seventeen games people. They just wanted to comment perception. How people found out about a seventeen game season. Not If read the media articles K Jesse Reid of sports not dot com wrote an article which has been syndicated across the country with the title the Title University poll shows only thirty one percent of NFL fans in favor of seventeen game season now..
Football: Should We Cancel It?
"It's September and for the US that means back to school shopping pumpkin spice Latte as complaining about Pumpkin Spice Latte as and of course football playing patty cake or on the field at Dartmouth McCauley's in New Hampshire where tame is gearing up for the start of the season so great that's Isaiah is. Am Swan He's twenty with this big warm smile and had pasta shoulders and he has loved football the basically his whole life. I pretty sure my first memory is of football. I remember sitting on the ground in my living room watching TV and my dad's on the couch to the right of me. That's that's literally my first memory it just ever since says in every Sunday I've watched every football game and you just you just grow to love it. Isaiah loves everything about this game the tackling tactics tactics and he wants to make football his career and Isaiah is good his coach reckons. He's got a real chance of playing for the NFL. I talked to our producer produce out rise. Remler about it. I WANNA be on TV. I want to be in the NFL. I love to do so. It makes you smile really brought yes it does. I'm just thinking about if all of that happens. Vince how great my life would be there are thousands of college kids like Isaiah playing that off in the fields hoping that one day they might claim the NFL but from what we've been hearing in the news that dream might end up ruining their life does tremendous damage wjr done to your brain while playing the game football of course is a violent sport and there's mounting evidence. It's putting players at risk of brain damage. We've heard that a debilitating brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or Cte is destroying the lives of players it manifest fest in multiple ways dementia aggression difficulty thinking even suicidal thought there is no cure and all of this has some people saying that we need to end it football as we know it people like Malcolm glad well. We told a room full of students that they should protest football at this school. I think all of you us to consider boycotting football games at Penn.. I think you have to convince your friends to boycott football games at Penn and I think you have to pick it outside football games at Penn mm-hmm Back Dartmouth Isaiah remembers the first time he heard about this disease. It was around seven years ago. Linebacker Junior. CEO who played played for the San Diego charges was a football hero a father of four but then he shot himself in the chest and was later diagnosed with CTA. A is am said hearing about this. It really rattled him. That was the first one that I remember just that connection like I could be Mike. CT could drive me to do that to myself is like it's like. WHOA my mom. She knows that the danger is there because does she says she prays before every game to praise for every game that I don't get hurt up on today's show of the stories we've been told about. CTE Right. How dangerous is this brain disease really and what's the chance that a kid like Isaiah. We'll get it when it comes to football. There's a lot of its but then there's
Brain scans detect abnormal proteins in NFL players with CTE, study finds
"Huge breakthrough. When it comes to see T diagnosis. It could be what we found her. What what researchers have found is that positron emission tomography or PET scans did show elevated amounts of this abnormally protein that can be associated with C. T scans are done on people who are alive because right now C T is only been detected on donated brains. Of course, get donate your brain unless you're dead. So they've been able to use a lot of NFL players brains to determine the location where these proteins found now with these PET scans. They've run some studies. A couple dozen other NFL players come forward. And they've run these scans while they're alive and they've discovered this abnormality abnormally protein that is usually detected with CTE's potential there that early detection on things like C T, obviously there's no resolution to that yet. But early detection always good news because then you can kind of figure out how you're gonna. Move forward. So I so understand this protein is called tau ta you and the tau deposits were actually seen in the same specific areas. So they were all grouping in the same specific areas of the brain showing of the people who had these patterns of CT exactly, but researchers being very careful to say that we don't necessarily know that this protein is directly linked to see T. We don't exactly know four foreshore that we have been able to detect what has been causing all these problems among NFL players hockey players you name it. So they're being cautiously optimistic that being said, this could be huge and the research will continue to save. They improve the technology better understand CD at understandings proteins, and they can eventually come to some kind of conclusion as to whether or not this can be detected while football players are in their prime or even maybe before. And I'm intrigued by the actual group of athletes who were looked at in this study who took part in this were they. People who came forward and said, I have had the h-have Urals symptoms like, depression or mood swings or memory loss or something like that. And wanted to know if they had CTE or wanted to be part of the process, all we know is that there were a couple of dozen former NFL players that get this scanned did this study, and then they had a control group. And in this study in the scan of these former football players, this was detected this protein was detected whereas in the control group, it was not that we didn't ease regions of the brain. So you know, that's indication that they might be onto something. But still a lot of research to go.
Study finds at least 10% of NFL players could develop CTE
"Players individuals who played football as their primary exposure to head impacts. Had signs of CTE. Now, we looked at football players from all levels from pre highschool to professional NFL players. The majority of the young players had mild CT, whereas the majority of the college and professional players had severe C at the time of death. There's no more debate about whether or not this is a problem in football. It is a problem, and we need to come together and find solutions for this problem. So Don three developments, I'll get your rapid fire for you and get your response. Number one. They've done a study of this study that's the one hundred ten out of one hundred eleven brain studied had CTE. But they're saying there's a selection bias there because these were families where the players were symptomatic. So they've extrapolated this out to the total number of NFL players that have played and they believe now that somewhere around ten percent of retired players are going to develop severe CTE. And so you've got ninety percent that may not. And they think that there is. A genetic variation that explains different levels, how some people have had head trauma, and they don't get while some people have had trauma, and they get severe CT. So the fact when you hear one hundred ten out of one hundred eleven that does not mean that ninety nine percent of all people that play football gets. Well, I'm always interested in funds the funds these I'm always interested to because this is such a small sample. There's always samples. Yeah. There's always buys when it comes to science. And this is a brand new science, right? I think what we need to do is figure out a way, and you would agree with this wrong. We have to figure out a way. And I know there's there on this track. Figure out a way to see if somebody
