Mailed of the great insider from CSN. Covers the niners and a man on a serious note we begin with how you got the news again on Dwight Clark your relationship -- him. The jail last news and how this is going to be handled throughout the 49 organization from even the former owner. Yeah. You know this is the week goes. The college football championship he reached out delight. And I talked to calm and at that point. Yeah is pretty clear even though he's traveling today gain. And he was going through some some physical issues and I think he he kind of told me without telling me so what was up. Better get up on call it tremendous feel and you know that this is not good. So it certainly didn't catch me by surprise. Oh win news came out the item most disappointing thing is that it did Jim Kelly had put something on is it to Graham cam. And in it seemed to me did that to light it was ready to it this year the world. I reached out to delight. And shortly thereafter. You know that the public announcement came out that he is dealing with Eilat so. I try to get punched everybody knows them. I don't know if you seen Gleason but boy oh boy. What lay ahead the story that is. You mean not to sugarcoat it that that if you wanna watch up and that really is is real. Watch it is not easy. But I think everybody. Should watch it. Because this is a very typical. Rare disease then again. Tremendous impact on obviously that the people to developed the disease but also everybody. Course so. I think everybody's got a relative to the lights. I didn't support him through this however he chooses to handle it whether the completely prizes the war like Steve Gleason a little bit more public. And I noticed former teammates couldn't. Everybody's who's patsy crops. Since 1979. When he came only became putting their strapped and everybody's going to do all they can't. To help ease the burden that he faces in its faces. Man Mayo goes our guest Eddie. In the history of the NFL Al Davis. Of may be more so Al Davis the way he paid for funerals and I can't tell you the stories that I've heard. So many off the record. By a former players and their families about what Al Davis would do. To raider players in need especially if we came to dementia. It could happen to their children being ill and now Al Davis who just stepped up and take care of the bill. Or send a plane or do something I think the same would be said about Eddie DeBartolo right up there is part of his legacy his relationship would Dwight Clark. And what he's going to do financially. And to make this fight a little bit easier for Dwight. Yeah I believe so community and unity is interesting that all of this came about it in the I'd you know did it after speaking to some people that Dwight had a pretty good idea. Eight yen in a lot of his former teammates and people that he's also it had a pretty good idea as far back to and indeed the bar low. Was inducted into the hall and he. Did the 49ers. That your call kind of late in the football he's. Some of the forty niner alumni. Ronnie Lott. It's a mother's. You got together. Terrorist Spartan. Brad Johnson and many others. Got together. In and out the formation. The gold heart fund. Which is. You're taking I think it was a million dollars in seed money from your friendly at the bar low family. Really gonna have fundraisers. And it commit to kick start this idea. Of former 49ers taking care of their own in people. In in need financially dictate come to better their side in and help him now however. That may occur so. Tagged I don't think that that it's any coincidence that it you know that this got off the ground so quickly. It was something nudity to bar look you're called during introductions here talk about. You know the eyes of history are watching it in in how we. Take care or alone. That they're useful to people remembered it and and so. He's made a concerted effort of the players whose lives he's touched me and made a concerted effort. It's he just hoped it and and I believe that that financially. Delighted and as like Kelly rule will be okay it has struggled through this. He's he's not alone there are other people not just not referring specifically dale but other. Health issues of former 49ers and meet former players in general. Part of the reason that the 49ers group. Like to do this is because they they wanted it to start something that we picked up by other. Seen other. Other alumni bases around the league so that so. You know these good plenty of good can come out of this. As delight struggles with with what he has right now. Matt mail goes our guests on president Trump's comments. About Colin GAAP predict I mean he really went after him hard. At a rally considering that there should be old news for the 49ers as they move on from him and cap next looking. For a job first off that I think that a colony should be commended for all the work that he's done recently. With especially the high profile work in the last week with trying to get water and food. To Somalia and the Sudan and then. Wheels meals on wheels and the donation which was a large one. That he may not believe he deserves to be commended for that. What's the problem with him finding a job as a backup quarterback is is asking price you able able to lie. Non guy I think it here is the huge issue with. Would that teams have. From PR standpoint. And if you if you look I mean it's the ace starting quarterback in the league you and I could debate that we can unite could we could debate. Whether he's the top 32 quarterback in the league. Maybe he is eighty years and personally I would think. That you probably it and he probably one of the thirty chief best cornerbacks. Eat that could be suiting up for example team this year is he one of the top 64 which would then today if he's either starter aura back out. I don't wanna put work in your mouth but I would think that we can probably agree that he would. Yeah well. Though it would that being kind of where we start this conversation. There's no reason. He shouldn't be on an Internet helped team right now if this were just about put in this is not just about football. I think what you'll hear is bigger mess age. Old racial. Equality. In in helping out people who don't probably. I think almost everybody. Can get behind. He in the fact that he in the process would donate eighty million dollars to two groups. You know are are trying to do affect social change. I think everybody most people get behind that. At the one thing though is that that people just haven't been very difficult time. Understanding. Is. The it has played the work perceived the perceived disrespect. Of the American flag which means different things to different people some people see that as a direct the military so he's taking it easy. During the playing and actually have some people say that. You know that that shot at anybody who's served in the military. He made the point early on that debt was not the point you make. Peace he's made cement steps play available on the way including. I believe lumping. And it's all policeman. Into. The same category. You know is ill advised decision to Wear kind of cartoonish. Police talks that that depicted him. Hague so I mean that there is he did not go about it from the beginning. The right way. As the season progressed in that I think it is. I think is to use it in what he's dead. Became a little bit more focused. But at the bit unique. Organization. That. One thinks of him as a guy who can help out on the football field. They have to take other considerations in the play in that field the ownership. Want to have them does what would the reaction in the NBA. So I I think the reason that he's not. Audit NFL roster and it really did know had expressed any kind of public interest in camp. Is that direct response. To. Be off the field and then not. The on the top of the perfect. Quarterback no he he certainly is not. But he's good enough. In a league full in perk recorded. To at least begin shot but I think he'd be off the field is the reason that he's not panicking right now. Tremendous analysis thank you so much Matt we'll talk and actually goes appreciate your time. Matt Mayo go that's a guy who covered Kapanen beginning middle and and and gave a really strong opinion on why can't find a job.
