For you saw and I think it's important for parents who played football. To let their kids know it's perfectly okay if you don't wanna play football now I I truly believe dynamo got a believes. In play in multiple sports brackets say this is a guy that has been an education. Garros so many financial reasons why you will continue to have football simply because if you don't have football at some high schools and certainly it's on universities. You won't have any sports because they can't fund themselves football funds you're athletic program. And when you wanna talk about money. That's the bottom line football funds the athletic program. It's. The NFL plans a three game is it could be as much as three games to be less three game suspension.

Are you not I was tell a Christian you're a guy I played obviously at the highest level as Super Bowl ring. You are going through kind of a concussion. Situation with the NFL and you know me to comment on that but you're also a dead. Who song played in our program. I'm now is it is an excellent receiver for cal. How will use a dead coming up and I don't think I've ever even acts Judas how were you was a dead common up. When Brandon first approached you about a dead not take I want to play football you know Connick bring us through that because we have dads out there.

Successful situations so. Calm that thing out there ought to work a ball and we just work the water and popped that the war. You're better and more importantly is being in the old ball cherry pop bowl. And we on the fact that the injury we can't control injury injury happened. I think around eight.

Oh it would enter followed me there they're basically Kia did very well that are and it would do government. The cuts and oracle but in the added meaning you'd. They co Q we teach never UG. Shoulder. First. Well more lenient apparent that that culture they pride and do it ain't the right way it was the object is. Hey you played with TO out there in San Cisco.

I welcome back to sports talk Alvin Gentry head coach of the New Orleans pelicans draft night in the NBA coach. I'm an eight on a first round draft pick but still pretty exciting night. Well there's nothing you can excited and all the time. You never know what can happen. Over including. But it verbal commitment to a than. You know an outrage we have to prepare like we're going to be. I have a personal pick goes to you that you never know what's gonna happen forestry card. So are you tell me that maybe guys are trying to get back in the first round here nobody is listen it's okay to tell me coach. I that don't is that there's a lot of girls that ignorant that. I got I got to unity got a new contract exits I'm sure that's. That's got to be early for you know yes and we'll securities to see after the success you guys had this year. Well it is that I. Like in here and you know element. Go to. The confidence that. There are should be one of the potato that's really exciting and it topic we're headed in the right direction so I'm looking forward to Republican port through. Are getting back on the porch on all over there. If you don't. Give back in the first round tonight in the sec on how do you evaluate that second round pick when he what's the approach from the organization there. Well I think that like anything out there everybody would where available. But you know we're looking at about. Verbal that that might enter into it also but the beauty you know I think got guys do a great job out there are great job look at it apart. A group of people at that particular. Position. That fit into what we're trying to reduce system why and so. You know pick it could become. Very are important to. Pick someone that's first of accustomed to plant where you. How does coach Alvin Gentry here on sports talking. Coach and bear with me on this have been maybe I guess and a wish list of mind but say LeBron James says he don't want he wants to get out of Cleveland. How much you think you guys who would we go after. Well I can't comment on that for the simple fact that it's on the album all fired irons were beta stage now and I'll I'll I'll I'll go to our everything that you adult. But you know my bag to it is not known. The talk about so. It only Elkins. Duca can be the designated. Bill is not that I don't want answers. I have felt all prime adjustable these. Again I get it now have have even a tenth of that so I caricatured so I apologize but all of auto let me let me ask you this though so. If you close as an organization and you feel like it regardless of in free agency are trade to what patty. How willing are the pelicans to go over the luxury tax if it means adding players that are gonna get you guys maybe over the competent and into the Western Conference finals are are to win a championship. I think that is being committed trying to win a championship and you know it is something that's significant. Yeah topic that would happen. Either bring the number one priority is. You know she's in this metropolis a championship without doing. Big user of the truck or a championship when Mandela and it and the coaches and so. Well I think we would would go to opted to put up with significant. A significant to our. I I think that mrs. beer party would try to do. How is Louis cousins come along his rehab. Are indeed making progress. Where a couple Andrew but I consider these these people working his butt off he carries. I mean he's you know pretty much we have about 68 out every day so. Do you not think he could very much. And to try to get himself back in and get into the form but he lost her. What do you think. We think about it once he gets back to it to be no play basketball again. Is there is there concern at all that there in my in my take a little while in order to get back to being that we cousins he was a feat he sees no ability that pretty quickly. Well that that's one of the things that no one knows real you. There's nobody working extremely hard and trying to get back at that level. And you know respect courses not going to be the answer to exactly coal. Coach a lot of success last year. Will MBE and I you've had time to maybe think about your season. Who was or stretch our our moment there was where he looked back on cement that was some of the fun assigned I had that next year. All up in the last five gains you know that reclusive. But we believe the designated I'll play off. And we we're in a position where rip away all of we can't wait for. But that would reform Denver on European network via. And so. I've got that the department so that approach to regain. The last pocket of these. Every every query you know awful things about that you know this is the several day you know we happen that Tuesday that. And you know they did a great job and you know when chemicals on the load. You know one of those pairings have been planned seven polio at all. You know obviously all of the cave you gonna look up of a doubt been a great job of this you know coming together and and plan that would change. Coach Alvin Gentry are the pelicans on sports talk wind Allen and coach he did just enough parity is in the NBA. I think that's why you not think everybody talks about. You know Golden State and and there are great to be very very very cute and probably war. You know. You know there was parity anomalies that put Chicago bull. You know you do. You know they they want you know we're. Critics. We felt like you know we have a great chance to America BA championship we could never do only poll I think that make. Great basketball you know you you wanna try and it took me out thing. There are more Leo Houston has has the right approach. Say you've got to build everything and everything going to be very spot on the beat Golden State you know about what you got to try to do because they're the champs. And if you wanna beat cancer got a on the way that the heat content. Coach headed into this coming basketball season. How important will be at a recognize what you accomplish last year but a lot like the saints do where they they almost say look that was last year we we just our new. Well what you want to do you wanna try to appeal all the years that we had last year he would model the war. Prepared. It has no bearing on the next season the next season becomes a completely. Separate entity. So we will happen to well. It go out there. Prada. When apple level that we do last year which will you do a change up it's going to be better and we're live here. How to take coach Alvin Gentry hey thanks a bunch for the for the time and you you pretty busy right now with the draft gone. Good luck to pelicans are. Our Rapid City got a problem. Are you bet most subway comeback for John uptown you to a 50426018. Semi tech's eight sept. The sports talk here on W growing up in the dot com. I look back sports talk here right back to the phones John uptown what's going on John you're on WW well. Right now condiments of some phone call. They are both criminal or or yet when that. Was being used football tackle football for. You are important. Don't know I don't think it was important for lord that it stood at cheap looking at them. And now are you get looking out there but it is. I. Understand that there's been an. Animal. When it goes well we'll follow. But it poured into caught in its entry that relate to. But it sort. Completely by each plate. Q what is being just prove critical this button. Twenty years. Therefore. Carol. You know scheme gutsy idea. What. And normally what they're. Gabby yeah it is and it does come off as a bit hypocritical but here's the thing. I I I really believe John thanks to the phone call I really believe it is up to those families just like. He sees some parts of these country this country stuck to legislate it you know and and I think you get in some really really murky waters. At that point coach to simply because and there's they're they're good they're legislating education these. Days we talked about that name another profession. That has people outside of that profession controlling it I mean it would we talked about it would be like guy acts on shall come to me insane. Hey coach we know that you don't know anything about deep water drilling but could you tell us should we drill here right commonly viewed. You know our General Motors off but I would say in and Christa we know you are radio personality could you decide the next caught that we wanna mass produced. But in education and they gladly stop once on those terrible chip hobby but in education that's exactly what happens we have people sitting on administrative boards educational wards. Towards of elementary and secondary school education for states. Who have no education background whatsoever talent. Educators. This is the way it needs to be done. The approach should be okay as parents and I give it some there are some. That are on under clue really is underprivileged are they might be an end in the impoverished communities that can't. Get the education about. About the concussion concerns etc. but I think. Alma that I totally believe that simply because kids' educations everywhere look we're talking about a right now on the radio in their radios free and I don't satellite so the point being is that. I think it should be up to you know. Up to the parents to decide with their kids as to ultimately pay should you continue to play this sport or should you. Wind should you play this for us had this conversation with Deuce McAllister OK some I mean you know hating each. And that's incredible career in the pros. He's he's a legend at Ole miss great college football player. And he has he made a decision on his own his his sons and I don't play until certain age you from exactly what he told me and I think that's wise I think that's the way it should be handled and others are missing one what about the parents that wanna live vicariously through their kids and force in the play at a certain major force in the play when they don't. They don't wanna play again that's not my problem though I I don't wanna see that that's not my problem. And I tell you read some of these texts are. The naysayers to doomsayers about what football's gonna be nonexistent in 101520 years. It and we won't have any sports at high school content college levels because I'm Italian. The only sport that makes money. Is football is unknown have you may have a feud at break even right they may breakeven. But when you're talking about funding. Massive high school and college athletic programs. You better have the in Kabul football that's all I'm saying. The dance team to cheer camps they'll draw them off the football but absolutely I mean there's you know our I'll speak about on bill because I'm at home. On Friday nights from we have home football game you've been there it's it's sold out and we packet every Friday night. Walk the dogs Hillary's that benefit from that oral OTC. Everybody gets a jambalaya sell for a football game. Program adds. Our gates are the gate for Hondo doesn't go to Hondo football woodgate goes into a general fund and a general fund is distributed through the rest of the athletic program. I mean you can't imagine the cost of running a sports program just if you eliminate. Anything. Think about travel how much travel. Costs schools and school systems how much officials cost schools and school systems how much security. Cost schools and school systems. And when you go to certain venues. Those stands are very crowded those sports now have to go out and fond memories and you can only go to so many people and sell so many cards are so many bars and candy so many car wore shoes. So football. Which usually has large crowds especially I know Hondo we have tremendous crowds. That's why we have great football. I mean great great and a great athletic facility grabbed the top of the line equipment in every single sport and we get a because we have a great school system who supports. Athletics. They support academics they support the arts we have a great school system we also have huge crowds on Friday night. That help our school to fund our athletic programs and just look at the big time college. The soccer teams that cheerleaders and dance team and those that baseball programs. If they would be they would be. It is there and if if if if you cut out for pilot what Ella she wrote a ten million dollar check to the university this year out of its football captain which goes to show how powerful us.
