Are you listening on the free Odyssey app? Good. Great. Congratulations. You are absolutely, you're just the best.
Okay. Are you listening on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate? You are equally amazing. Are you listening on Sirius XM Channel 158? Terrific and much love to people listening on a smart speaker.
If you called me so far though, you got on the air, you going to work, you're leaving, it don't matter what you're doing. The Odyssey app is how you can hit rewind and pause and then you can also share the show. If you called me and you want to hear what you sounded like on the radio, the Odyssey app. You going to work and you need to get out the car? The Odyssey app. You going from the car to the house?
The Odyssey app. Come on. Simple. It's 2022.
Get with the times. So far in the show, we talked about the Dallas Cowboys and their injuries. It looks like they're going to have another season of being just okay. And okay is not good enough for the Dallas Cowboys, but I mean, that's, that's what they're going to have to settle for. We talked about Aaron Donald.
I would say let's put him in anger management, but then we wouldn't get those highlights of him just beating up two and three defenders. On Thursday, as the Los Angeles Rams get ready to play their final preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, there was a little scuffle. Things got scuffly in the words of head coach Zach Taylor and the baddest man in the NFL decided to swing not one, but two helmets at the opposition. Yeah, Aaron Donald was, was he going for blood or was he going for concussions? And what does he, what is the NFL going to do?
Find him? Well, they ain't got nothing to do with the damn practice. And you think the Rams are going to find him? No, nothing's going to happen, but it's dangerous. Dangerous as hell. Out there swinging helmets. Miles Garrett is just like, well, I swung a helmet and y'all made me disappear and find me. Aaron Donald swinging helmets and practice and he can get away with it?
Yeah, the answer is yes. It's just worst case scenario. You don't want to see somebody just, that's just awful. I don't want to see anybody get cracked in the skull with a helmet, please.
It's terrible. As we continue on with the show, let's stick with the LA team. Since we're talking about the Rams, I do want to get into the Lakers. I do want to talk to you about Chet Holmgrum.
There's so much that we need to do as we continue on with the show. 855-212-4CBS is how you reach me. 855-212-4CBS. Matt is calling from North Carolina. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Matt? Hey, good evening, Jer.
To you as well. With this Aaron Donald thing, if this had happened outside of a football field, you're swinging a football helmet at somebody, you know, you'd probably be arrested for possibly assault with a deadly weapon. I mean, I know, you know, things happen on the football field that aren't in real life, but and if this has been anybody but him, you know, or at least the second or third string guy, they probably wouldn't be on the team.
I mean, they'd be gone. And then these coaches are just, oh, it's nothing. You know, I mean, fights happen in practice. Yeah, that happens. Guys don't lose it completely and start swinging a helmet at somebody. Especially, I mean, you're talking about, you know, a guy that's supposed to be one of the leaders on the team and he's doing that. I think the Rams, they probably won't, but they should, or they have to, you know, something to, you know, find the guy. I mean, they probably wouldn't spend them, but at least find him or something to say that that's kind of thing, even in practice, even in a fight in practice, that kind of thing isn't acceptable.
Sure. No, and I agree with you. I think at minimum and thank you, Matt, for calling from North Carolina at minimum, at minimum Aaron Donald will get a talking to. I'm sure Sean McVeigh will tell him, man, you, you just, you got to keep it calm. You, you putting us in a bad position and he may not even put it in those words. And maybe they have such a relationship where nothing will have to be said, but it is dangerous.
You, you cannot do that. And it's true. If this was any other player not named Aaron Donald, that guy would have been suspended. If you're another player, come on, we're in cut down mode right now in NFL training camp. If you're another player, you getting cut.
I mean, who, how many, let's think about this. How many players in the NFL can legitimately walk around and say, oh, I'm not playing. Can legitimately walk around and say, oh, we fighting. Let me swing a helmet. Most guys know, Hey, if I swing a helmet, I'm done.
They're sending me home. Most guys know if they swing a helmet, I'm being suspended. Most guys know if they swing a helmet, their career might be over. I don't give a damn if it's in the regular season or preseason game, or if it's in practice like Aaron Donald did today, Aaron Donald is waltzing right into the hall of fame. They probably building his bust right now, figuring out where they want to position it. He ain't worried about a damn thing.
And neither are the Rams. It just, it sucks because yes, it is dangerous. And we can look at equipment in sports and go, oh my God, every now and then, uh, there'll be someone who gets cut with a skate on the ice. And you got to pray to God that they don't get cut in a spot where they will just, just bleed out. Man, we've seen some terrible falls in the NBA, NFL, come on with neck injuries.
Nobody needs to see anybody swinging a damn helmet. Come on. Kerry's calling from Baltimore.
You're on the JR sport reshow. What's up, Kerry? Yes, sir. Can you hear me loud and clear?
Kerry you're live on the radio. Okay. Yes, sir. Um, I just wanted to know, um, what was your take on the, me and my son are sitting here listening to the show and you said a couple of things and I'm not refuting what you're saying, but in terms of it's, uh, I'm using the helmet as a weapon. You can kill someone.
And the first thing I'm sitting here thinking is the NFL is going to have a and the first thing I'm sitting here thinking is the NFL, the game of football and the NFL particularly is already violent. Um, what do you say about that for the people to say, you have a lot of hit on hit contacts every year, they seem to can't get it right. And, um, you can certainly kill somebody that way.
I'm thinking more so than swinging a helmet. What is your take on that? Uh, Oh my God. Uh, you know what, Kerry, I'm, Oh, that is, I gotta be honest with you. I'm shocked. My son is listening, but anyway, that was my question.
Go ahead. Say what you're asking me. No, I'm, I'm, I'm shocked. They're asking me that. I mean, we here on the show and much love to your son. We here on the show have talked a few weeks ago and I don't know how often you listen. We had the conversation about head trauma. We had the conversation about CTE. We had a full conversation about as to whether or not you would allow your son, your child, your daughter, anybody to play contact football. Brett Favre is an advocate that you shouldn't play tackle football until you're 14. And so we've had that conversation. I don't know if you've heard it, but the fact is, okay, well, I'm sorry.
We had it. Uh, Hey, you can go ahead and hit rewind on the Odyssey app. You can also get the podcast and just search JR sport brief football inherently is a dangerous game. You sign up, you play, you know, you are at risk of injury to your joints, to your muscles. And as we know now, to your brain and to your head, it is a very different thing when you're participating in the game of football, which has rules and has continued to advance rules, which will protect someone's brain. And it's not foolproof, but there's a big difference between playing the game of football, knowing that you could be hurt.
And so we're going to be playing the game of football, knowing that you could be hurt and someone taking a position of, I am going to hurt you. Does that make sense? Yeah. Yeah.
It does. I don't, I don't watch. Well, Carrie, I'm, I'm just, I'm listening. You're, you're, you're someone with a child. You have a son, a son, right?
Who happened to loves football. Absolutely. Do you, let's are you familiar with NFL blitz? The, um, yeah. Oh, do you mean the game or the video game from the video game from 20 years ago?
Yes. No, I remember it, but he doesn't, he's a Madden fan. He's only 10. Oh, well, that's, that's my point. That's why I said, I'm sure you remember the video game. There is a difference.
Let's put it this way. Your son can play Madden. You can play Madden. There's a very big difference from me going back to 1999 and picking up NFL blitz. And there was an issue with NFL blitz because people weren't just playing football in the game. You could tackle someone.
And then I can remember very vividly someone saying, I'm going to take off my helmet and swing it at you and bludgeon you. Come on. Yeah. It's no, no, no. I agree.
I agree. But can I ask you this one question? I think this is where I really need to get your, um, get your honest answer on a few years back. I think it was with the, um, with the saints. Remember what was called bounty. What do you call it?
Bounty gate with Greg Williams. Yes. Yes. We going to sit here and act like that this culture has completely disappeared, not from the people that write the rules or for the people that, um, wants to kind of make the game safer, but the culture that's deep within, are we going to sit here and act like that, that is still not a part of football, the violent part. Oh my God.
Football inherently is a violent game. That is, that, that is, that is without a shadow of a doubt. I don't think, and by the way, I'll tell you this, Carrie, I don't sit around and I know you don't mean it, and I know you don't mean anything by it.
There's not a damn thing that will ever come out of my mouth that will not be honest. I don't, I don't need to sit. I don't, I don't get that. That's exactly why I say I wanted to hear your take on it. I don't get that at all.
Trust me. I wouldn't have called it any other way. But that's football is a violent game, but there's a difference between, Hey, I'm playing a game of football, which has rules. And I'm going to swing a helmet at someone's head, or I'm going to play NFL football and I'm going to need someone intentionally in the groin. That's why there are penalties. You take it, you take it a step.
You take it too many steps too far. When you take what is probably the hardest object on the field and you decide to aim it at somebody's head. No, that ain't, that ain't NFL football. It's not. And I, and I get your point there.
It makes perfect sense, but I guess it's a part of me that's saying, okay, hold up. Aaron Donald was, um, was stationary, right? Pretty much swinging it just as far as his elbow could reach back, but it's different from him running at, I don't know, five, 10 miles per hour with all of his weight. It is, it is different because every single human being on that field is playing a game. They're playing a game that has rules. Does everybody play within the rules?
No, that's why there are punishments for it. But if I went down the block and I decided to swing a brick at your head, what's the difference? You said, well, thank you for taking my call. It's been a blessing to hear from you, my son, to your point, his name is Caleb, by the way, what's up? Well, is he sitting in the car with you?
He absolutely is. What's up, Caleb? How you doing, man? What's up? How are you? I'm excellent, man. You play football? Um, I will next year.
Oh, that's good. How old are you? I am 10 years old right now. You're 10? Hey, listen, man, 10 is an amazing age.
I used to be 10 a long time ago. Do you have a game boy? Um, no. Do you know what a game boy is? No. Okay.
When I was 10, I was playing with a game boy, but, uh, you, you play football, but do me a favor. Okay. You ready?
When you play football, don't take off your helmet and swing it at anybody. All right. All right. Okay.
Caleb. Thank you. You call me anytime. Okay.
You and your dad. Okay. All right. Okay.
You guys have an amazing night. Thank you so much. All right. No doubt about it. Thank you. Oh yeah.
We know football is violent and shout outs to Caleb. 10 years old. I should send him one of my game boys. I don't know where they're at. I don't know what these game boys are. You wouldn't know what to do with one. He wouldn't know what to do with a game boy? They don't, they don't know what game boys are.
Unfortunately. Listen, if I found a game boy chef, I wouldn't be here for the next week. I call, I listen, I'll be like, Tetris or Mario. Tetris or Mario. Oh man. What would you choose if you had to, if you had to take one on a game? Oh my God. Tetris or Mario. Oh, you're making me feel nostalgic, man.
And I mean, listen, I mean, I, we, listen, we all went to dentist's office at one point in our lives, right? Which, which, which Mario, which one? The original. Oh my God. You understand you could play that for hours, right? Yeah. And it wasn't bad on 64 either, man. When they, they, they, they re up that too.
Just kept getting better and better. Nintendo 64? Yes. I don't know.
What did that come around? Late nineties? Yeah. I didn't play that one. I didn't play that too much. Were you, were you PlayStation over Super Nintendo? Yeah, I was a place.
No, no, no, no, no, no. I was a Nintendo guy all the way and then PlayStation, but not in 64. No, I, I went right to Wii and then my life went into the toilet. There's no more, no more video games for me after the Wii. I don't know. Wow. Tetris or Mario.
You got to go Mario, right? There was something today, by the way, I don't know what happened. Something prompted me to try to find Tetris for my phone.
Someone mentioned something about making pieces fit together. I don't know if it was Draymond Green. I could be wrong. Somebody mentioned Tetris and I said, wow, I need to put Tetris on my phone. He wasn't talking about Kendrick Perkins afterwards. Oh, you know who it is. Shout outs to my man Scoop B. He mentioned Tetris.
And then he said fitting pieces together, like the Lakers fitting pieces. And I said, man, I need, I need Tetris. I haven't played, when's the last time you played Tetris? Tetris? I thought, man, I probably a week ago.
Get out of here. On what? You played Tetris on what? You played Tetris on an iPhone. There's Tetris? There's a, I can get it? Like real Tetris?
Absolutely. You can get anything on an iPhone. I don't play the games.
You can get anything on an iPhone. It is so easy, man. Cause listen, I mean, I ride subways to work, you know this. And when I'm waiting on the platform and it takes 30 minutes for public transportation to arrive, I can get three games of Tetris in. Wow. You can even get Tetris underneath the ground on a subway.
Well, they have internet in the New York City subway. Yes. Wow. I still like Mario. The first Mario, you could play that.
We're talking hours and days of gameplay. Sure. You got the different levels and you got the flying rocks and then you got the monkeys running around and you got the sun trying to burn you. It's just, yeah. Nostalgia.
Shout outs to what? Was, was a young man's name Caleb 10 years old? Correct. He's missing out. Well, maybe he's not.
Probably living better. Shout outs to him and his dad. I love it when families call up. It's a family affair. It's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio 855-2124 CBS. That's 855-2124 CBS.
If you have any takeaways, don't swing a helmet at anybody. And then also, yeah, I like Mario more than I like Tetris, but I like both. I'll take your calls. Aaron Donald, Mario, Tetris, and then we'll even get into the Los Angeles Lakers.
They're comedy. It's the JR Sport Reshow. We got it all here on CBS Sports Radio.
You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, JR, how you doing, man? I'm a big fan. I like what you do, man. I enjoy your show.
You be on point, brother. You're doing the same, man. Just wanted to commend you about that. Hey, JR, I love your show, man.
I really appreciate what you're doing. You're like the Webster of sport. Call in now at 855-2124 CBS. Yes.
It is the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. We've been talking about the... Chef, what did head coach Zach Taylor of the... Things got a little scuffly.
Is that what he said? Scuffles? Scuffles?
Oh. Scuffles sounds like something that you don't want, man. Yeah, he'd be good during Watergate. What, I'm not a crook? No, because all they do is cover up.
All they did was cover up back then in the early 1970s. Hey, let's... Well, hold on a second. Let's never use the word scuffles again, okay? It's not my words. No, he didn't say scuffles. He said scuffly. Scuffles sounds like a disease, man. Scuffles sounds so much better, JR. Scuffly?
I'm being sarcastic. A warm, cuddly... Yeah, but scuffles. It's like, hey, you sit down at the doctor's office and a doctor walks in and goes, hey, I got bad news for you. You go, what is it? You go, hey, you have scuffles.
I'm going, whoa. I'm like, I don't want scuffles. What is that? But things got scuffly. And it got more than scuffly.
How about this? Things got violent between the Bengals and the Rams today. You know, I mentioned to you all that Aaron Donald, yeah, he wasn't getting scuffly. He was violent.
He was out there swinging helmets. And that's not a mistake, okay? Plural. Two.
More than one. Two helmets. This man was swinging helmets.
He had the defensive player of the year, defensive player of the world, defensive player of life, future hall of famer, swinging helmets. And the most that they did is say, all right, practice is done. No joint practice between the Rams and the Bengals. We're done. And there's nothing that can happen. Nothing. And I mean, fine, okay, nothing happens, but they got to tell Aaron Donald, hey, man, you can't do that.
Miles Garrett, we saw him be suspended, got tapped in the pocket for it. You want to know why? Because you can kill somebody. There's a reason there's a reason why we don't see throughout the court. We may go a few years without seeing somebody, you know, just swing a helmet. We'll see somebody rip a helmet off. We'll see somebody throw a punch. We'll see somebody knee and slap. And we see all of that. What that's like in baseball for all of the fights that we see in baseball, do we see guys like literally picking up the bat and going to the pitcher's mound?
No. What are you going to do, kill a guy? There's a reason why we don't see dudes out there swinging helmets. Yeah, the NFL is violent, but you swinging a damn helmet takes it a step further. What are you going to kill a guy for all of us to see? Nobody trying to see that. And so, yes, this is a rarity.
And do I think it happens all the time? No, because if it did, we'd hear about it. These guys wouldn't have jobs if they were out there swinging helmets. If Aaron Donald's name was not Aaron Donald and he didn't accomplish everything that he's done up until now, he wouldn't have a job. He would have been cut. He would have got fined, suspended. What's going to happen to Aaron Donald? Nothing. He probably isn't going to, what is he going to play on Sunday for?
Excuse me, Saturday. He's getting his work in. They're going to get him ready for the regular season.
He's going to go out there, bust ass on a regular season, add to his hall of fame resume, and then maybe win a championship and go home. It's dangerous out here, folks. Bill is calling from Toronto. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, JR. How's it going, buddy? Very well. Good.
Good to chat with you again. Yeah, I was just actually telling, talking to Shep and I was mentioning about the Miles Garrett situation, kind of a bit of a precedent there somewhat, but even almost more egregious in some ways in the fact that he ripped Mason Rudolph's helmet off him, him, and then clubbed them in the head with it. He's only, it's his helmet, which is just insane. And he, it happened in the 10th game of the season and he didn't play another game in the, in the season at that point. So they suspended him until the following year. And then he started the season after that. But he was certainly on a tear as far as, you know, sacks and everything that year as well.
He was a big part of Cleveland's defense. So, um, and yeah, so, and as far as you, you've got me thinking about the video games from the last segment there and I'm a little older than you, but, uh, but I, I used to play in the, in the arcade games all the time and I played asteroids and Galaga and all those games. Oh, I played, I played Galaga.
Don't fool yourself, man. I played, you think I never played Galaga? No, I think you probably did, but yeah, it was, that was like my era of games, you know, there was nothing, there wasn't the other ones out at that point.
I played Galaga and Space Invaders on a crap PC, on one of the first crap PCs in the house. Yes, I did. Nice. Nice.
Yeah. Well, they were great games. They tested the, you know, the hand-eye coordination big time and my friend and I, we would play them. And, uh, and we, we got so good at asteroids actually that, uh, cause you get shifts after one after the other, as far as going to ships, endless ships.
And I would, he'd go for dinner and I'd play and I'd go for dinner and he'd play. And then we get bored and we play for hours, literally on a quarter Jr. And then people will be watching us and everything else. And finally we turn the game over because we were finally bored after all that time. And all he's here is the one guy who gets the game, right? Boom, boom, boom, boom.
Cause the ships were blowing up one after the other, because it's so hard at that stage. So yeah, I was a video game maniac back then. Did you, did you, did you date anybody in this process? I sure did, man. I was a singer in a band back then and I was singing Sabbath and I was, I was a competitive hockey player and my uncle was a pro. So I was playing top, top level in the MTHL, which is now the GTHL, which of course feeds the OHL and, and all that.
So, and I played competitive soccer as well at the top level. And, uh, actually when my friend won the super bowl, he won it for the Niners. Uh, and my buddy, uh, a guy used to play against with Steve Christie, you have the kicker for the Bills, of course.
Yeah. And, and, uh, my other buddy won two cups with Pittsburgh, uh, Jimmy Pack. I played with him in soccer and played against him in hockey in the top level.
He played for the Marlies and I played for Royal, Royal York. Um, and, and yeah, so I was, I was, I was into it my man, big time. And as I said, I was a pinball wizard too. Yeah. Listen, man, I bet you were into it.
Well, Bill you're amazing, man. I need to hang out with you. You ever hung out on young street? All right. Oh, tons of times, buddy.
I used to go to a bar. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Don't give, listen, Bill, let's not, let's not give away the secrets of Toronto. Okay. No, I won't. Okay.
No, this is places. Listen, I just asked if you hung, don't tell people about the history, but me and you, we need to talk. We'll talk about that privately. Okay. Sounds good. Yeah. Hey, listen, hit up young street for me. I need to get back to Toronto soon. Okay.
Yeah. It's a great place. I really love you. I'll have you out here, buddy.
Get out here and we'll, we'll have some parties big time. Listen, Bill, email me. You know how to email me, right? I don't have it, but I'm sure I can look it up for sure. Oh, get just give it's JR sport brief at Gmail people.
It's not hard to find people. Okay. That's cool. Let's, let's set something up, Bill. Okay.
We'll paint the town, uh, red and white. Okay. You betcha. For sure. Thank you, Bill, for calling from Toronto. Oh yeah. Well, I love young street.
One of my favorite shops is on young street and there's a lot of things on y'all. I need to go back to Toronto tomorrow. Charles is calling from Baltimore. What's up, Charles? You're on CBS sports radio. Hey, Jr.
Thanks for taking my call. What's going on with you? I like the inner Harbor too, by the way. I think you know that already. Oh yeah.
The harbor is always great. Yeah, it is. What's going on? I'm just very disappointed at Aaron Donaldson. You know, he seemed to carry himself as a professional. Part of being a professional is not just your ability, but it's being cool under pressure and, uh, same thing with mouth dirt. I mean, just because someone call you a particular name or whatever, uh, you're going to go and take your helmet and try to ask this guy here then. And I don't know if many people know about what happened with a beat to leave, if I'm saying his name correctly.
His brother shot a referee. Yes. Yes. Right. So, but he also had a reputation of being a high head on the field. And you see that translate also off the field. So I just think, uh, for our professional athletes, man, you, you got to really think because, uh, uh, he, he's also putting out a statement saying he's sorry for what happened, but that kiwi league coach is big.
So, uh, you can't always say you sorry and take away. It was, it's, it was his brother. Right, right. But he, he incited the riot from what, uh, the other coaches were saying. Uh, uh, I've heard, uh, a lot of the coaches come out and speak, uh, and gave, uh, their story about what happened and what I hear.
He invited it. I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm sure, but his, it's one thing to say, Oh, well, he incited the B for the argument and then go, Oh man, well, his brother killed a guy. That's, that's tough. And that's, that's also a totally, totally separate conversation of one we're having. But it also, it can lead to that role because a lot of these guys today, what happened on the field years ago, you should stay on the field, but today guys are more sensitive and a lot of guys now, uh, it can translate off the field.
Yeah. Any, any, any thing can happen. And maybe I, maybe, well, hold on Charles, slow down, man, slow down, please.
We are being real and please, baby, I'm missing it. You tell me right here on the spot and maybe it happened. Tell me the two athletes, uh, you know, and I can, I can think about, uh, you know, Gilbert Arenas in a locker room, but, but, but help me out.
What professional athlete killed the other guy after the game? Uh, I can't think of none off hand, but it's always the first time for everything. It's always the first time for everything.
Well, there's a first time. Well, you, you may bust your ass. Have you ever bust your ass outside? Yeah.
All the time when it's snow. Okay. Well, listen, well, maybe one day you'll walk down a block without busting your ass. There'll be a first time for that. I mean, come on.
Like how many correlations are we going to draw? Well, one day there's going to be, yeah, pretty sure there will be, but why we got to go that way, man? Come on. Oh yeah. Yeah. He swung his helmet at him. And the next step is he going to get the gat after the game. Come on, slow down.
First time for everything. Damn. I'm glad I need to take a break. It's the JR sport reshow on CBS sports radio 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. I'm going to get some more of your calls. We're going to talk about the Los Angeles Lakers adding Patrick Beverly. I know there are plenty of people who are still thinking about the conversation we had about game boys and we got a lot to do, but right now let's get to a news flash and let me get to a break.
You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio. First off, I just want to say mad respect for your show. You always got a lot of good points. I agree with a lot of things you say. I just want to say, I love your show.
Me and my grandpa listen to it every night. Call in now at 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. Yeah, I'm here. I'm going to be here for about a little more than an hour.
Yeah. And next hour, the top of the hour we're going to get to the Lakers because I love it when guys talk trash to each other. Like they're talking crap to the high heaven and now their teammates. I'm going to give you my thoughts on Patrick Beverly joining the Los Angeles Lakers because he has said some interesting things about one of his new teammates, Russell Westbrook.
And Russell Westbrook has done the same, but we got a lot of callers on the line right now. People who want to talk about Aaron Donald and his helmet swinging actions. There are people on the lines right now who want to talk to us about Game Boys and Nintendo. Sure.
Why not? Hey Shep, why were we talking about Nintendo and Game Boys? I asked, we had a caller, a young man. He was 10, Caleb. Correct. I asked him about Game Boys.
Is that what happened? Well, you spoke to his dad and you gave an example of a Game Boy and you said, in reference to his son, and he said his 10 year old son is not familiar with the concept of a Game Boy. It's before his time. Yeah. He's missing out. You can say that again.
He is. He's missing out. If you ask me right now, would I rather have an iPhone or a Game Boy? I'd say I'll take a Game Boy.
You ain't lying. Like I don't need nobody calling me. I don't need to see no stinking text message. I'll just give me a Game Boy. Used to entertain me for hours on end.
I could swap out the cartridge. What do I want an iPhone for? I need to be connected with people for. I hear you. I hear you.
Trust me. Unconnect me, please. No stinking ass iPhone.
Give me a Game Boy. Ben is calling from Maryland. You're on CBS Sports Radio.
What's up, Ben? Hey JR. Great show. I got to tell you, man. Back in the day in college, we had a joke that you could write a college thesis on Game Boy as long as you could prove it. And it was one of the funniest ones ever. But I got to admit, man. Great statement on that one.
Teaching the younger generation. But also, when it comes to Darnold, honestly, dude, if I was the opposing player that Donald tried to swing at, I would have filed an assault charge. Because in several states, that is assault. That is a dangerous weapon. It is malicious. You could hurt somebody.
So I got to give a lot of credit for that one, man. That is excellent point. I literally, if I sort of got a fuzzy poison fire, that Darnold would be going to Darnold and I would have a court case. Well, I think there's, I think there's, I don't want to call it an unwritten rule. But there's, it's just like, hey, let's, let's handle it on the field.
And it's mano y mano. If he were to press charges, he'd be well within his right. But I think his teammates is the opposite. People would look at him different just because of the nature of the league and his profession.
You don't think so? No, it's not because of the league. It's because based on state law. My friend is an attorney general of the state.
Let's just say neighboring DC. Forget that for I'm not, I'm not, I'm not talking about the legalities and filing a lawsuit. I'm talking about internally in the league for his profession as a player in the locker room. It's people would be like, you're going to sue Aaron Donald.
Like, do you want a job? Uh, can I just the internal questions, whether right or wrong, it, it'd be, it'd be something that people would look at your cross about. This is correct. I completely agree. But at the same time though, I mean, uh, you have to look at it as far as clear safety goes, as far as the NFL has gone these days, reasonable become a rather big deal. And it is, it can be, as you once said earlier, it can be considered assault as a dangerous weapon, which it is.
It's a Kevlar in it. I think for the most part, and I agree with you, Ben, you can go out and, and, and people are, we live in a very litigious society. You can go and sue whoever you want for whatever the reason is not that it will hold up or anything will happen. You could do what you want. But I think in the case of the NFL, and thank you for calling from Maryland, uh, especially if you're a middle of the road or you're an average player, come on, there are 53 guys on a roster. How many guys on a roster are legitimate stars? The reality is it's almost career suicide.
If you want to start running around suing guys, cause he swung, he swung at you, or it's a different situation. If now you're injured, unless you feel that you're going to make more money by suing Aaron Donald, what are you doing it for? Sully's calling from Michigan. You're on CBS sports radio. Hey Jr. How you doing brother?
I'm very good. What's on your mind? Hey man, you know, you struck a nerve with this topic when I was playing football in the 70s in high school, we were walking off the field and the little scrum kind of broke out between us and the other team and all the parents are on the field.
Wow. And we were all doing the same damn thing, man. We all had our ride L helmets, you know, in our hands, walked in, you know, just walking out, hold it by the face mask and stuff broke loose. And you got a helmet in one hand and your fist in the other.
And, and you start swinging on people. And I'm going to tell you what that right L helmet is a lethal weapon. I was dropping people left and right. I mean, it was, it's, it's a bad, you can't believe it's like taking your Louisville slugger to somebody's head.
I mean, you'll drop people left and right with that helmet. And what happened to you Sully? Well, what happened to you after? I got clocked pretty good a couple of times. Oh, oh, but I'm saying you didn't, besides catching the ass whooping, you didn't get punished in any way, shape or form. No, well, we were walking across, it was like the, the high school football team nearby. I mean, there was, there were cops on the field and stuff, and it was just a melee and they just kind of broke up everything and let everybody kind of lick their wounds and walk off the field together, you know, but it was a melee man.
People are clocking each other left and right and helmets were a good weapon, but you could, I don't know, you could probably kill somebody with one of those. Yeah, no, it ain't. It's not probably you could. Yeah. I mean, it's like a club. It's like a Louisville slugger to the head.
Listen, any, anybody, and thank you Sully for calling from Michigan. No, it is, man. It, I have helmets at home. I have helmets that people send me. It's like, Hey, here's an event. Here's a helmet, Jr.
I got helmets, man, man, helmets hurt and not to be swung at somebody's dome there to protect it. Jack is here from San Diego. You're on CBS sports radio. Hey Jr. How's it going? Good. I just wanted to start off first and foremost, I love your show. I listen to it every night.
I'm a first time caller. I just wanted, I heard you talking about game boys earlier and you said something about it, a 10 year old. I heard the 10 year old didn't know what a game boy was. I actually own a game boy. I, I play it occasionally. I love the, the super Mario on it. It's super fun. My bet. Yeah.
So, uh, I just wanted to say, I love your show and, uh, thank you. The game boy is not out of style. I have multiple friends who are my age. I'm 15 who have game boys.
Excuse me. You're 15 years. Where'd you get a game boy from?
Okay. So eBay, uh, my mom, uh, had a game boy had it for like 20 years. So she just gave it to me and I was like, Oh, this is cool. And I've been playing it since like, I was like eight years old. So, Oh, that's good.
You, you, you have your mom's game boy. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, that's good. All right.
Well, Jack, that's amazing. I, I, I have many a game boys too. So, uh, you know, uh, I don't know.
I got more game boys than your mom had to put that out there. Okay. Yeah. Also I wanted to talk about, uh, Aaron Donald. Well, we're up against, we're up against a break.
Can you say it in 15 seconds? Yeah, sure. I just wanted to say, if he has folded a guy on a field, regardless of morals, regardless of what's right and pressing charges, he did something wrong.
And I think that should be punished. Okay. Hey Jack, are you scratching your butt, man? Uh, no, I'm walking. Okay. It sounds like you're scratching your butt. Sounds like you're scratching your butt. It's the JR sport re-show CBS sports radio.
