CBS Sports Radio Show – July 1, 2018: Dave Richard, Dr. Michael Alosco, Shannon Jordan
News out of Raider Nation may be slow, but the crew of the Silver and Black Today keep the summer rolling on with a great show full of Raiders news and a look at how you can win your fantasy league this year.
We start off our weekly CBS Sports Radio show for July 1, 2018, with a rundown of light Raiders news including owner Mark Davis‘ time in Las Vegas this week. He fed construction workers at the stadium site and even talked Golden Knights hockey with the media.
Dr. Michael Alosco from the Boston University CTE Center joined us to discuss the disease and its causes. Alosco also elaborated on what researchers are doing to identify CTE in living patients and ways he and his team are looking for ways to make football as safe a game as possible. Alosco also discussed the best age of when someone should perhaps consider playing tackle football as brain injuries can occur faster in young players.
The effects of CTE is just one of the multitude of issues the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund deals with on a daily basis for former NFL players. Executive director Shannon Jordan was our final guest this week talking about the issues former players and their families have to deal with. The organization fights to help those families and provide not only financial assistance but emotional support and connection as well.
