"Welcome back everybody I'm Michael Finley this is consumer talk on KGO on live line we have Joshua Slocum he's are with the funeral consumers alliance which is kind of fascinating Hey Josh thanks a lot for joining us hi thanks very much I thought well basically your whole study is about pricing and funerals correct correct I thought the deal was they had to be up front in California and then tell you what the pricing was well behind us and that's what we refer to as the legal loophole California has a a law that no other state does it's a good progress that requires funeral home to do one of two things one if they have a website and they want to be in compliance with the law they have to put up with called their general price list on the website that's a price list that every funeral home in America must have according to the Federal Trade Commission so they either have to put a link to that price list right up on their homepage or if they don't want to reveal their prices in this is the legal loophole okay I don't even know okay so what we did was look at funeral homes we look to the right since I don't want I don't want to have to do I'm sorry I talked over you the child okay one of two things put your complete price list right up on your homepage or if you want to hide your prices and some of them do all you have to do is simply described the kinds of services you offer like cremation or embalming and then put a little sentence that says a price list is available on request so the first in the nation law unfortunately there's a piece of that law that undercuts itself and that's what we wanted to look at in the study god it okay so what you find I'm surprising to us we found that there was a pretty big price difference between funeral homes that prominently disclosed their prices to consumers online and those who don't so as an example we looked at three different key prices that you're going to find it any funeral home these are the basic services a funeral director and staff that's one next one's called direct cremation simple straightforward and third one's called immediate burial also simple no ceremony straight forward what we found was place Haider's the people who don't post their prices online charged thirty six percent more for that basic services a funeral director and staff the nose to disclose their prices and when you get down to specifics like a simple direct cremation we found that placed his closer's people who are up front the median price that they charge for that simple cremation was twelve hundred ninety five dollars but those who had their prices charged medium sixteen hundred our goal if you think that's bad you wait until you hear this okay a range of prices that we found in our study for exactly the same thing remember we're talking direct cremation here apples to apples comparison lowest price we found for that service was five hundred twenty five dollars highest price four thousand one hundred fifteen dollars wow this is I know it's shocking this is what consumers need to know though because if they encountered the kind of pricing variation that you find in funerals with anything else they'd be shocked it would be like going to the apple store and seeing the not the new iPhone for a thousand dollars and then going to a competing store in seeing that exact same model for six thousand dollars that's how crazy it is the problem here is that we're all so emotional when we're dealing with this and you know we really want to give our loved ones the very best and we sometimes confuse that with spending money all right yeah so that was a diplomatic way of putting it but that is the case and we're talking we're talking about funerals right this is what economists call of distress purchase it's pretty easy to see why nobody wants to buy a cremation of course but we have to and unfortunately because prices in the funeral industry have been hidden for so long despite federal regulations this is why we're pushing for a national standard now add to make these prices have to be posted online because people don't want to think about this until the end we end up walking in to a funeral home blind without experience of having done it before and usually without knowing that there is a range of prices in some are much more affordable than others is there a quick way I guess a quick way to tell is if they don't pose some prices online you know what's going on right pretty much you know I mean obviously there's they have an interest in not disclosing their prices because if they don't disclose them it's easier to sell somebody something that's more expensive if you know if they are not able to comparison shop ahead of time and funeral homes don't like to be questioned on their prices they're very very defensive about it but consumers have a right to put that pressure back on and to say listen you know I understand that you're in business you're providing this service and I need to pay for that but we have limits and you know budgetary limits ourselves as consumers and so I can I think that kind of the take home here for people is you as a as a family are going to have to make these decisions but you do have options and there are ways that you can protect yourself you know more easily than you think that's that's why organizations like ours exist if you just understand that you have some basic legal rights that shopping around ahead of time really does not a big savings you'll be in a much better and more confident position when you have to make this arrangement how do you even get people to donate to your organization I mean people just don't think about this I know I heard I heard when you opened your site and I heard that shock in your voice at the at the very name of our okay god bless you that that you're there please don't you know our movement really I mean the bay area is is kind of one of the founding places of a famous will labor lawyer named Bob true half did his famous British wife Jessica Mitford started investigating the high cost of funerals in the late fifties and early sixties and that led to a blockbuster book called the American way of death yeah I was super famous when I was a kid she asked and the bay area funeral society that they found that there was one of the founding members of of the organization federation that we are here so yep on people don't usually think about us until the last minute but you know hopefully they find is useful when they do need us so what what do you tell people about I mean first of all I've got to tell you honestly when I die I don't care what they do yeah I I mean at all because I understand that you know we're very move and it's funny not everybody in my family agrees with this that you know they they they want to be put somewhere and so that people can visit yeah in you know I I just think they're moving they're busy and and it's just not important so I I it see it also seems to be here help me with this it also seems very much like a whirl thing like they're still bearing people in rural America all right yeah well you to pick it depends nationally right now we're at fifty one percent cremation that means the creamy in America is now more popular than burial but of course it varies by region you guys on the west coast kind of pioneered this back in the sixties cremation rates are very high on the west coast somewhat lower in the northeast here in Vermont were edging up close to seventy percent but while hearts of New England and and the south you know will be more around twenty five to forty percent but there's no part of the country where cremation isn't growing cell funeral directors who think this is never going to hit them in Alabama I've got news for you it is yeah Josh Slocum everyone from funeral consumers alliance they're definitely worth checking out the work they've done Josh really thank you for doing this work thank you for your interest I appreciate it sure thank Michael any.

And so anyways after one of the games, he did not get along with Marcus smart, and they didn't shake hands you shake hands with everybody at the game. And he went out of his way not to shake hands with the coach. And the coach goes he doesn't wanna shake my hand shake his hand either. He's not from flower Mound Road, always law that statement so much. It was amazing. But that being said, Marcus, smart was awesome. You could tell he was totally going to be in the NBA.

"How great he is going to be a problem. And that's the problem. I believe he's transcended. He's the greatest of the football that I've ever seen enough to quarterbacks, but his personality would rug me the wrong way in he and I would have huge problems. I've told you from the start you can't be transcendent. If you don't have some leadership intangibles, and he's got low to no leadership in town. Joel's he wants to lead Aaron into state farm commercial. That's how I know him. And I've said all these things from the start. And now, I read them was in this piece in the swarm Forbes. It was Forbes I read that your Michael Finley said he had a rocky relationship with Aaron Rodgers. And then I go over here. And I read that Kabeer Bajour be Mila says actually Brett farve was more humble because Aaron turned out to be more on the air against side says Bajour be milk. And then I'll get to Jeff Janice saying what I've talked to this man about from the start and this man caught a whole bunch of balls from Aaron Rodgers. So he knows what of he speaks. Jeff, Janice says the basically Aaron destroyed his confidence with his finger pointing in practice and sometimes in games to where he started doubting himself into where he was just a mess. Just said I could he said positive reinforcement woulda worked with me a lot better than negative. Right. We'll give you okay, heat complete path. And he's talking about. No. Okay. So I've always admired, Greg genie's. Because from the start on this show. Greg thin it can be tough. It can be a problem, but you rose above it because you are highly successful with him. But I'm sure there were days when you were saying pan this is wearing me out. Right. Right. So I don't know how much more this. I can take. But you were so talented that you just said, I'm better than rice. I can rise above this. And you the throw throws in the one Super Bowl eras played in that broke the game open with the big post route touchdown, right? So in the end, this is all that. I thought he was from the beginning. Again, you can throw it all you want is Aaron Rodgers immensely more talented and gifted than Tom Brady Suri is Tom Brady kipps keeps taking these spare parts and saying I love you, man. Let's throw in the offseason. Man. Let's get this. Right. And he takes little Julian Julian move to LA his rookie year, and in offseason and just hung out. Throwing Tomba there Rogers way more talented, Tom right now. But he's weighed less likable than Tom Brady. Okay. Because you know, what guys wanna play with Tom because you don't what he will accept responsibility. Will if I play bad, my my phone, not do that when the dirt my fault. Yeah. You should've shortened that route. No hold on. Wait a minute the round causing me to go to eighteen don't him out go to six yard when you threw the ball in the dirt except respond, right? Definitely skip. So I said this one of the greatest thing to happen to me is that I played with John in even if I ran the wrong route he never showed me up in public, and he will give me behind closed doors and say, this is what I needed to do in desire need you positively reinforced? He said, you can be great. Yes. Yes. And it was I knew their time that you know, he messed up. I would say my phone John new heat through through it over my hair or he's short Batumi my bra. The daily trust. I get nothing. A don't you ever? Don't you? I don't care doing show me up in public response. So here comes Matla Fluor having played quarterback at Saginaw valley. State two years of coordinator in the National Football League. One under Sean McVay that doesn't count show McVeigh's the western Michigan guy, west treatment guy. Right.

"They're doing what they're doing on Tuesday. It's not as if they have some extra leverage over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, I do believe whatever they were going to decide to do in hate to tell you Jenna Jenna, keep asking me. What's he gonna do? Chris. You're going to see Jimmy. I really don't know. I don't don't believe the concussion will affect what they decide to do next. I think he's going to report before Tuesday. And now Pittsburgh Steelers. They have a mini by Thursday night. Lot of guys get banged up. But you do have the extra time to build a recap. We'll see if this is in fact in custody as it's been reported by how he recovers from it how he proceeds through the protocol. You know, what it might affect how warmly quickly he's received by his teammates. He being lady on bell. Because all of a sudden you go from lady on bell. How much do we really need him to? Oh, we're on a roll while huge part of that has been a very effective running game. We might actually need him. Now. I know we don't expect lady on to step in and make an incident back the level James CONNER has. But the the Connor injury was the only negative from this entire game for Pittsburgh. Like this was a critical game for them because yes, they had been going. Well, but this was the best team. They had played in. This stretch over the over this month, the football, and they and this game could have gone the other way I drive of the game. Carolina was very I marched just marched right down the field. They couldn't figure out who was getting a carry camera was McCaffrey we when Cam kept the ball their receivers open like it looked and immediately juju has the huge play. And then they call what I thought was a great blitz. That force canned where am I going? I can't take a safety. I throw it away and they make a play there. And all of a sudden that snowballs rolling downhill is my Tom talk about how much they need James Connor to go back to that. For a second. Big Ben head completions two nine different guys last night's those able to spread the offense and get a lot of people involved. So perhaps another reason why they're rushing back that quickly coming up, zinc. You'll earlier right? Is sunday. A must win for the Dallas Cowboys. He thinks that's next first things first. Checkout. They fight. It's the latest film in the sports documentary series entitled magnify executive produced by drew Brees. Tony Parker, Michael Finley and Derrick Brooks.

So unlike some of the other magnify movies that FOX's come out with I haven't seen. We haven't seen this the previewing this yet. But this is I think arguably the best thing we do is network gave Spitzer and his team this new documentary series eighties in line with any of the best sports doc series. You've seen this one. I've heard great things about I set your DVR. If you're watching football make just set your DVR watch it when you can it's going to be great. I haven't seen this one. But it looks awesome. Yeah. A lot like Jenna. I'm a huge fan of boxing technique, the overall would it takes to be boxers. You see where they were underwater? He was training them how to their breath. The guy was still working on his jabs. It's we're into it. And all of these stories have a very human side. It's a sports story with a very human side.

"Real trauma and again it's it's their choice to play sports and naked saying this was my choice i wish i was more informed i wish i could do it differently but i'm not blaming the league what i'm saying is don't ignore it don't act like it's not happening maybe someone else can be spared what i'm going through if we meet these problems had on and certainly that applies to the nfl it applies to soccer it applies to boxing it applies to any sport in which there's contact any sport in which the head suffers repeated contacted repeated hits hope the nfl reads this and is listening and i hope that you'll check it out as well but be prepared it's it's maximum in the face it reminded me and we'll take a break here then reminded me of the conversation i had with your michael finley former packers tight end who had his career prematurely ended by nasty hit in a football game on the field he was knocked out and he sat down with me on radio row at super bowl week in february and he told his story and he talked about the dark days when he just wanted to give up now he's gotten help he's getting treatment specific to brain injuries but some of the things that he says are very similar to what nick outlines in his column the depression the mood swings the anger the panic attacks the anxiety coincidence and so i read tweeted that that link that youtube linked to the conversation with your michael in case you wanted to hear someone say it instead of reading.

"Is it outside the realm of possibility the c aaron rodgers playing until he's thirty eight thirty nine i don't think so i don't think it's that strange either obviously a very tough day for air and he put something on instagram about seeing jordy nelson being cut basically saying hard to find the right words today to express what eighty seven means to me no team it exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him from living in green bay fulltime is incredible contributions to the city state and region to is consistent reliable play on the field so obviously there was a rhythm that jordy nelson and aaron rodgers had that you want from your receiver and your quarterback you want that homerun threat that sort of that situation like they knew what they were going to do before the play actually happened and that's going to be difficult but they say about ten million dollars in cap space by cutting jordy nelson and they bring in jimmy graham which by the way the packers offense the way it's been run the titan has never really been featured in that offense under this current regime here so you wonder if that's changing a little bit by trying to bring in jimmy graham because always felt like it was the receivers and then oh by the way will throw it to a tight end when we need to clearly if they're getting rid of jordy and the bringing in jimmy graham they wanna make the tight end position more of an emphasis on the green bay office i think they want the tight end to be a position of emphasis but they really haven't had a guy that's been a difference maker at that position since what maybe you're michael finley somewhere so when you start talking about how they want to run that system i think that they do wanna tight in they just haven't been able to secure that player but you have to think the.

"A selim it citi field all right thank you greg we appreciate you covent out as always see boys you okay well jump right into the six pack now you guys know how this works i put the call out on twitter for questions you guys to ask i picked six i answer if i answer yours you get that answer right here on the podcast plus you get a twitter shout out and we are going to start with michael finley that's at pauk oh poor allow shop that pock oh poor lousada he added he asks who will the cost cardinals starting quarterback be on the first sunday of the two thousand and eighteen season i did the cardinals would very much look at the idea of drafting a quarterback high in the first earned the first round the problem that they have is that they pick 15th and i think there's a good chance that the four quarterbacks that we've all been talking about josh alan josh rosen sam darn old and baker mayfield will all be gone by then and so then you're looking at the idea of having to stopgap the position that will put them in the market for a free agent quarterback they're not flush with cap room the same way the jets are the same way the vikings are and so they're a little limited in what they can do and that's why i like what the boss peter king said on monday in that in in predicting that that ag mccarron will be good fit there i could certainly see the the cardinals finding a stopgap of that nature finding a guy who might be a little expensive but it is a little bit more of a year to year proposition like in aj mccarron let him come and try to prove these worth being a franchise quarterback and keep your options open your flexibility open the position that's the way i see it anyway question number two.

"Who i won't cow rudolf if if his eighty is exactly the same altaeh coach rudolf okay martellus bennett and jacked oil round out our top twelve easily take hunter henry over martellus bennett there you go we all have martellus bennett ten twelve and thirteen i think we've talked quite a bit about the fact it it has aaron rogers hasn't produced a top 10 in very often now it has happened and i think martellus been it is super talented but he's not going to be as reliable as you'd hope from the tide imposition you're going to have weeks where i i dunno martell has been a might have a touchdown weak this year yes certainly but just like last year in new england there were weak so you can count on in the there were weeks where he disappeared he had weeks last year in the 40s many of them in the thirty so the had weeks at number three number one against cleveland in baltimore so i don't think that change is very much in green bay where aaron rodgers spreads the ball around and you're not going to be locked in our martellus bennett at the tide imposition yeah on a per game basis back in the day when he had dra michael finley dra michael finley usually was finishing a round the six tight end which is which is very good so the question is was it that he doesn't throw to the tight end that much aaron rodgers or was it he didn't have talented tight ends after dramatically finley left and we're gonna find that out this year but we do know that martellus bennett will catch enough touchdowns to be relevant but i don't know if will have enough receptions to be banked on as a starter on a weekly basis you know my worry with martellus bennett is not so much what does he do but what does he do to the davante adams and possibly jordy nelson drew a jordy nelson 's if.
