"You know i i kept getting concussions. Never had one diagnosed me and as you mentioned kept going going and that's ruined my career and so now i've always thought it was crazy that we're f- completely fine with strapping helmet on an eight year old and tell him to whack his head but we don't educate as coach and we don't educate the kid and we don't educate the parents about concussions which are very easy to educate on also very severe injuries and what people don't understand is that you can really minimize the damage if you rest your concussions and so now the big push is happening legislatively. It's happening educationally through the c._d._c. Is that no youth. Coach should not be taking an educational program on concussions and the c._d._c. You actually have a coaching certification available a few months that we will be pushing like crazy to make mandatory for every youth coach that we don't waste these brain cells out appearance chris. You do have brains already that you've been doing research on. What are they finding through that research urge because i saw in the piece that they were doing sections of the brains and then they were analyzing it from that standpoint. What are they seeing all the the primary thing. We're looking inform on. Many of the things is the presence of a toxic protein called tau t._a. You if something that most researchers know well from alzheimer's disease these but we're finding also developed simply from trauma and so when you saw the pictures of the brains and you saw these dark brown specs all throughout the brain i mean that was a representation of this toxic protein that had killed those brain cells and so we're seeing that the disease actually selectively attacks ax areas of the brain that control emotional control attacks places of the brain that control memory and things like that and so <hes> we're we're seeing that whoa only unfortunate rushing pushing a snapshot of what the disease is done. We don't know when it started or how quickly progressed but we can see that. These men were walking around with profound brain disease at the n._f._l. Level you know as well as i do. It's kind of a conflict of interest situation. When it comes to the doctors. Their responsibility is not only to get the player healthy but to get them back on the field are are they in such a conflict. It's going to make it hard to deal with solving this problem well. It's it's it's become less hard because the n._f._l. Changed changed the rule and now if a player's diagnosed with concussion can't go back to play until they see an independent doctor because you're right that conflict of interest was simply simply so profound that doctors would be paying our hospitals would be paying teams have the right to be the team doctor. 'cause you get so much so many patients you reputation it'd be so big big and and so there are very clear situations including ted johnson story. Kyle turley has stores n._f._l. Players saying they don't felt they're given the best care the proper care because they new their doctor did not want to lose his job and would not fight for him and so they were mistreated and <hes> hopefully that will go away a little more now that not only do they have you see the doctors but also the athletes are much better educated and now understand why they shouldn't be going back and probably are going to be pushed around as easily chris. We've got about a minute before we have to break here but the the thing that struck me is that you had an interview that was done. I think in two thousand seven or part of that story that was done <hes> about the team physician representing the national football league and he just i could not believe him saying that they don't see any connection between a brain injury and some of the end result situations with players that there is is no information that connects the two together i mean it was just playing ignorance on the doctors part that represented the n._f._l. You know it wasn't planning. There's it's not like you hadn't seen the day of the doctor cast and there's actually now since step down as co chair of that committee but he he just he decided to create a absurdly high bar for what what he considered evidence and he probably wasn't going to be convinced until we had hundreds of cases of this and not just ten or fifteen that we have and so <hes> he was just the wrong man to be leading the n._f._l.'s.

"Bengals. Those have given their players especially players that they want to rely upon for big roles starting roles making the team whatever <hes> they have really given the white glove left treatment to injure guys or guys that could be at risk for injury <hes> all of that so. I think this is going to be a game where you're not going to see a lot of players <unk> but you are going to see guys that i mean even guys that you think are at the back end of depth charts. I don't think you're gonna see a lot of the rodney andersons. I don't think you're gonna see you know. Some of these tight ends or you know. I think some of those guys are just gonna say. You know what you're on the team. You made it. Don't worry about playing this is more about you. Know this group of guys is that we need to figure out who may sneak onto the roster who's going to land on the practice squad and who is going to be out of here <hes> <hes> but for me i think the interior of the offensive line is going to be interesting to watch <hes> i think the linebacker group is going to be interesting to watch and i think it's going to be a a game where a lot of the weak areas will be spotlighted and that's where you can really pinpoint and say that's where they're going. Come waiver wire time <hes> whether that's the offensive line whether that's linebacker <hes> you know who knows it may be an additional defensive lineman but i think for now you really like you mentioned johnny really kinda wanna keep an eye on linebackers and offensive line <hes> right now in this game because is those two positions. I think the bengals will scour the waiver wire to get some bodies there. If if the bengals go that route do you. I mean are you. What's your confidence level in the team being able to find players. Potentially that can have a bigger impact. Maybe some of the guys that we've seen in week four of the preseason. I have more confidence and then finding out a rostrum lamp becker roster lonzo line offers. That's lamas. No no team has a surplus of often limited. Unfortunately guys we're getting are basically the same however that the cutting for ingles. Maybe there's a linebacker to give give them some some special teams value. Maybe play pension coverage whatnot got patriots at a loss of name but probably the deepest atlantic all right now and i believe guy of thinking of lead the n._f._l.'s teams tackles twenty seventeen. I ran that he was tested on the bubble. So maybe that's god looked forward with me but yeah. I think i think there if it keeps six linebackers i think the six is going to be somebody on the team right now. I'm not too confident <unk> entree partner with anybody even though i think they have a handful of beds to have somewhat of a value but yeah i would say more violent beker in if it keeps six exciting right now how how much of an impact if at all do you think this this week four game has on her confidence level preparation anything for the week one opener. Does it mean anything or is it simply trotting out guys to see to sift through kinda. Hey back into the roster practice guys guys that are in that's it. It never means anything for anybody that matters but just for the guys for still fighting harley. I like this is like the scouts time really just focusing on on bishops every game because these guys have the guy's not happy jordan. The guys that are playing are going to get cut and have to look for work at someplace else basically auditioning for another team so it's very important for those guys. It's not going to be pretty impressionable <unk> none of the stars playing for the entire game so there's gonna be guys like like we said the deep positions that unfortunately not take air but they can find someplace else in our own well <hes> the bengals take on.

I'm just not sure on what kind of the right answer is here because a one-sided i'm jay z went into. Take this whole social activism thing to the next level in that some kind of change but then you calling company saying hey. How can you say hey that team now. That isn't jay z's probably level of influence. That's why cops out any kind of sway to get the team <unk> owner to higher quality team and also as a team owner. I'm not sure i feel as if this i'm not sure how it would go.

You're representing a minority people who also incredibly vocal or who feel very unjustly represented or unjustly treated right for areas happen so far. It's probably recipe disaster. It is almost so west and if you buy in general we're going in the right direction. I think i'd like to see company back in the team again. I think that would maybe close chapter but i'm also a bit a bit missed about how he never regarded settlement which he probably isn't required to but if you're gonna do this stuff publicly protesting in such a public one big platform you other people some kind of patient about what you did so much now. What does that mean entailed hammers. You receive it meant. You had to have a guy go. I mean you couldn't say anything about what he's doing. Does it mean he couldn't play another team.

"I will tell you this in that regard which not going to do anybody a bunch of papers this week but <hes> if you go back it's it's not like <hes> the fountain of information but sometimes keep it simple stupid. If you go back and look at the scores in week one last year there were a couple of games that were low scoring. Most of these games were high scoring circus acts and then we too if flipped the other way where the majority of the games were lower scoring and it makes utter and complete sense that no these guys were playing sixty minutes football so if guys are getting tired appeared in the late in the game because they're playing a sixty minute game for the first time in over a year the offense at the advantage. They know where they're going. Tackling could be suspect so i would just say as a general rule of thumb look for overs as a starting point in week one then they get a full sixty minute game under their belt what they do wrong. They make adjustments in the defense has come to life and week to and it's it's a simple thing but i think it's a pretty sound starting point. Yeah you know i. I'm glad you remember that. 'cause i completely forgot about it. I feel like maybe maybe a week one last year. The over was twelve and four or thirteen and three some absurd number and a lot of those didn't even fall close to the total so i don't remember because i don't know they flew over well and then i remember us talking on the show about you know in in any league whether it's the n._b._a. Football whatever the biggest adjustments come from the first week to the second week or the second week of the third week. I remember we're talking about that here. On the show of you know what do the oddsmakers do with these totals now for week two then furthermore even into week three so yeah we'll see i do you wonder if it follows that mold and i also wonder if the and i probably shouldn't wonder this but i wonder if this works remember that and we'll bump these totals was up a little bit or be more aggressive with their line moves in week one well. I think what happens and you know. The odds makers are trying to generate array to act and we'll sit there with this cautionary tale then we'll say till you're blue in the face. Don't overreact to what you last witness <hes> in recent years i we'll say this <hes> you were seeing wine moves in n._f._l. Games but you're seeing on a week to week basis adjustments that you're like wow in the n._f._l. This could be week seven to week eight based on what was last seen and i think that's the oddsmakers just the you know the public's going to do and i think what will happen is if i think the other thing even though that was the case last year here if you have high scoring games in week one gonna shake totals up in week two <hes> because that's what people saw and so on top of the games likely will be lower scoring but the total is may actually be higher..

"What what are the real issues in your life. Let's talk about those trump has done that more successfully than bernie sanders. I say this someone who is not pro trump but he has done it more successfully accessibly because bernie has given in too much to the other distracting authoritarian agendas but there is a there was i shouldn't say there is there was a commonality between these two men which was how can we go above this bad politics which has taken the western world by grip and talk to ordinary people about what's concerning them and their everyday lives both of those had that instinct i think bernie has jettison instinct and has gone too far down the crew so i think you're apps. If you people want to take kind of calmer retribution in the fact that he's going to be destroyed. I think that's fine find because he made bad choices. It's just crappy. It's yes it just is but okay so let's link back to to the populism that you're talking about so i understand that and then what what is either the connection or disconnection between that and then nationalism then veers into what we should all be worried about which is actually ethno-nationalism yes so i think national populism is a pretty good thing because i think the only way democracy can work in a real way like i mean meaningful democracy where everyone regardless of best station in society regardless of how much money have regardless of how much education they you have. Everyone has the right to an equal say in how society's organized. I think that's an incredibly important political value. I think in many ways is the key article value. The only way that value can be upheld is if you have a coherent nation a nation which is not interfered with too much by outside forces which is not bossed around by a foreign oligarchy like the european union which by the way can write laws the us british people must live by even though we have no direct mechanism for pushing aside the people who write those laws to its fundamental outsource all your freedom people in brussels amazing right so we don't want to outsource all freedom. We want to outsource all democratic decision making processes but that's what has happened so i see national populism as an attempt attempt to recover the ideal of democracy and and borders are actually central to the idea of democracy because if a nation doesn't in control its own borders than it really isn't a nation a tool and if it isn't a nation a tool than it cannot have democracy which can only really in any meaningful sense. Take take place within a nation humanity has not thought of any other way that democracy can work although the intonation so when somehow people sort of think that borders are are somehow against freedom but actually the only thing that ensure free absolutely and i think the riot nation to police borders into control his board. What is this is essential now as it happens. I'm very liberal on the question of immigration. I would like a liberal policy on immigration in the u._k. N._f._l.'s but i think the onus is on me to argue for that in the democratic sphere rather than having a situation where in europe for example the european union determines how how many migrants country should take less implicitly anti-democratic over here in the u._s. You have a situation where you have these supposedly radical eccentric democrats who just think everyone should be able to come to the us regardless of whether they come through the legal port of entry regardless of whether they tried that's through in the in the reasonable way they think that people should be able to swim into the country and do as they please what these things having common is an hostility towards the idea of borders but it's an haas hostility towards the idea of borders. That's not based on freedom but is is based on the idea that the nation is is a bad thing and that democracy is a bad thing and we should just throw everything open and allow other people to decide the fate of the country ah democratic..

We're planning freshman quarterback light. I think you had to establish that last year a little bit of identity and then also as you talked about defense defensively i think in college football you need to make some stops stops or critical than college football this about scorn the ball and how can you limit possessions while you limited by controlling the clock in not allowing fourteen to fifteen divisions.

"It's he's bender camp that he's picked up on some traits or some ability to play wide receiver more than he had lose georgia. So i decided to give is on. I i want to see if his speed is really close. This tie retail level where it doesn't matter if he's not particularly good at getting off the line of scrimmage if he's not particularly good at setting defensive backs suppler getting vertical. How good is that speed when he's out there. Where's he lining up. Does he have to be off line of scrimmage. Does he need a free release the effective or can he he beat somebody scrimmage from time to time now the preseason kinda tailor made for somebody like goldman though he's playing against guys most most of the time he's going to be playing against quarterbacks backs that are fighting for depositions or to barely break starting lineup. When you have a guy that has superior speed. He should shine in this situation. I doubt comical. Hartman gets only first team reps. He's going to be playing with second team quarterback against second team corners. He should really shy when that happens. He should be a guy making place he. You should look really good if he's not letting it starters so that's kind of what i'm hoping to see from him. I'm excited to finally get is on because you guys have seen him a little bit. I haven't got to yet so i'm ready for it. I know i'm kind of coal hartman hater because i question how he's gonna be this year but i'm excited to see what he can do. Maybe i've underplayed in my mind how valuable valuable his particular speed is going to be. I just need to see it right now against n._f._l. Players d's that's absolutely the case. I wanna see his releases. I wanna see his routes. It's a want to see his brakes. I wanna see how much he's grown. Because what i saw at camp was a functional wide receiver.
