As a guy who plays in the league and I'm sure you're aware junior obvious in what he meant -- -- what's what's the reaction of someone who who plays in the National Football League to a day like yesterday. Tremendous. Complete shock. We know Lou Lou you know -- name. You know it and he had been removed from the game at all. And you know anytime you lose a member of the ball which aren't you remember about football community. -- always slow ignore your critic. Google -- who could deal with. This with you know some of the speculation that's out there about you know some of the possible pixel. Noting it -- player in the General Electric assist complete speculation -- Albert -- the -- Yeah and there are and there are no bid to scorpio Marmol -- You know that's how many of our Gaza where. And you know to see I would like tragically ended in the hours just get something you didn't -- in -- completely kick the ball go. George -- -- -- portion resolve and our afternoon guys yesterday talking about the dangers in the game and you're right when it comes to say are right now it is complete speculation as to what happened here. But you know there have been documented stories of players with head injuries that have had depression and issues and and a whole bunch of problems and they've ended up taking their lives. How I mean do you guys think. Not bad at all when you play football. Arkin are continue. On Pryor who is no because since until it's safe to become an you know comfortable -- -- You know of of leads Donna I don't think double release -- the dust out of but now all day at the researches has you know there's been some research. And that -- lot of has been published are provided to the to the players. In Arctic narrow you see more guys -- more -- -- of the harm to this subject in sales to -- an entire career. You know and then now you know you have more best -- -- -- more long term and one to beat Iran not to be you'll be able to make sure they're there MacBooks be around -- be able to enjoy this spam so. Elvis' death opened it it is a continuance -- -- grabbed attention a lot of our players. Have you ever had a day. A moment be an injury or anything where you thought maybe I shouldn't do this anymore. If not I've been blessed you know not to have those moments. -- -- anything coastal. But I -- know one thing they say you know when there's scandal a 100% injury risk and even though you may not feel book fixed right now lunch you'd you know a lot of guys. That have been ahead as soon after the in the gang they may not experienced and while playing but you know as you continue to do that as you're saying you're older. And you figured you'd rather go door -- things you've done your entire life. That's when some of these physical possibly creep me and so. The longer the so called sport of bad because you're not -- symptoms right now doesn't mean that you're completely in the clear. Well you know on that Georgia wearing Kirk was on with the guys -- -- he said basically you know football players know. Their life expectancy is gonna be shorter because of what they both reliving. Apps absolutely and that's something that -- definitely know. Dead. I understand. And -- most who look at defamation objectively should understand -- -- you know play this game. The milk comes with you know. Tray -- you know you have to give up open get open and unfortunately. You know it it's it's such. Well I was gonna ask you if you think it's worth that obviously you do you're still playing so why do you think it's worth it. You know like that this is something that we've done nine trial this is something and it. You know -- -- -- -- bloodstream I mean this is something that we -- to do we loved the competition load their aggression -- The camaraderie because we're playing the game and it is definitely doesn't. Make make the person but it definitely helps to you know. Be a part of the person and just being a part of the game is this is your in the -- tremendous foreign born out there competing. And -- face different challenges are different things present in order a Burger -- guy. Leo or improper or -- you know unfortunately with with a lot is what makes this commit now a I think if you ask. Would -- -- out loud their sons to play this getting. Are -- though you know that's when I think you'll start here maybe a few different answers and maybe you order -- three years ago. Yeah I think Georgia brought up the point about you know it's I love you see -- talk about it's in your bloodstream at the competition the camaraderie the aggression and I wonder. We're talking earlier maybe the league should do more studies with veteran with guys after they retire because I think. That life after football when it's all gone and you can't play anymore again we're speculating on junior but. I would think that's really hard and maybe that causes depression maybe that's what's difficult for guys to handle you're done it 3035. In the game you love and have lived for. Is gone completely. Yeah I think that definitely a transition out of the game. Regardless of have a plan or not. I think that you know every gas bills pay as you know experience at some level of in noble -- like let's say -- Bill Clinton's game your entire life analogy comes a point where. Either physically unable to do -- or you know you based could be intelligence services are no longer needed. Until that that pretty typical for somebody who's best to win. You know you've always been able to -- so the challenge you but it would have to India everything that they've become Kuwait. And you know some -- and to the better than others. Some could have -- and helpful Kook. To get through some -- -- support group maybe a -- in secret is -- it and -- somebody about it you know also a medical professional and talk about these staying put. You know we're we just so accustomed to being very masculine have been able to handle what ever comes -- way. That you know we're expected to be able -- two. Absolutely get through but unfortunately we're we're still a human would steal Meehan and we were still you know have our. Our failure will rule we're still -- exposed and and we still need -- -- it you know it just sort fortunate bit. You know we have experienced tragedy like this group who are you know continue to move to bring attention to that it. Last thing for -- George. It in terms of the safety of the game it's a violent game you can't take hitting out I I keep saying. What else can you do it is only so much you can do they're gonna be collisions on every play. Can you make the game safer or is it. Are they doing the best they can right now. If god I definitely I think that the league. And a competition committee has. Good job over the last couple of years and tried to make became safer. You know you see good good good good good good -- Chengdu and kick -- coverage. You see out there they're really. No he -- that he is no. Catapulted himself into not only. You know anything goes above the shoulders it is deemed illegal and that the honorable and -- you know -- to -- which is critical this sport. You know you can only do so much and you know -- without in a change and there are a waiting game is being played and so. There are prepared as we continue to move forward -- continue to load. Out of make the game as they could they possibly can't -- you know at the end of the day. You know just a and it civil -- have to continue to deal with and just be more market below -- deal with. Are trying a little when you do have an experience of of one of these he would -- more or injuries. George you know you're really busy and we do really appreciate taken time out for a few minutes on your way into work this morning thank you very much. Great thank you -- go to rested it.
