You know if alcohol was his drug of choice and make no mistake about it out well is indeed a drug. He won a flaunt any tests -- kittens managed out of his mind but still -- and able would go to practice. Oh subs no cuts are a bit like college definitely and well -- -- access -- her drug got to remind you will fail politics what depends what the testers I mean to be taken gulf for example. If that's a PE elective who knows it might loosen up in the tires -- my dog. As I have met a seasonal Beers like golf there's the -- zone where you have to be relaxed I'm being serious here because alcoholism drug and if that had been his drug of choice. No harm no final -- on a team nobody would have known anything but because marijuana was his drug of choice. And apparently. I don't know not his counselor I'm not his doctor I don't know if he's addicted to it or not. But it he had used alcohol. And had decided to. To Alter his consciousness with Jack Daniels instead of marijuana guess what he's still on a team he's still as high rated prospect -- -- Leo think. 261870. Toll free 86 exit eight and early seventy brandy and slide out the morning -- on -- WL. I on the name. -- And I gained that it is ridiculous and he definitely should get out -- -- and I don't believe. They should even be clack. Side of the draw personally. I would definitely rather be an accident with somebody let -- marijuana and somebody strong. Carly didn't question opinion -- drop in on. Or. Well I. I don't think anybody should drive anything impaired and I would prefer not to be in an accident at all so. All want -- -- -- oil barrel. It not a big deal. And he's not winner monogrammed. I don't think action all and I believe and -- -- less than a mile. Ride. How long. Everyday to the idea. The action and tell you would you have you are addicted to it and -- EU. 98 so apparently not subject to drug test. Should all. Night he had children. Do you you go -- lengths to make sure that they know you don't do this -- -- -- Actually she -- nights he got a different room -- news. Outside Tennessee and easy to make you a better parent. -- and how much would you say this costs you. I would probably say 46. Week night do you think this is any different. Then a mom who who goes home and and hits the yellow Taylor the box of wine or anything else. Obviously I didn't. The only thing I -- different is that you know with people trying -- they can have a little. And be -- -- on marijuana. Nobody will be so happy. I and I said mom I should make my mortgage is to be -- make -- apparent right. I will open up our minds of people think I'm glad you're so honest and candid with those that don't even thought I would even say your name again right. That I appreciated T 601870. -- three. 866 and 89087. Need to arraignment he was on the conversation about marijuana and and alcohol when he went to another chance he's in mobile he's not. -- participating in the Senior Bowl he's he's shaken hands trying to recreate himself and get invited to the scouting combine to get himself a shot at the NFL. Does he deserve another chance would you want him on the saints and if even mind if he'd been drinking and if he'd been altering his consciousness of boos and set him week. We never about -- -- -- leaving phone lines are open back in a flash Tommy Tucker got a W. Tommy Tucker -- WL first news at age seventeen got -- French market Mardi Gras gift basket coming up for you will tell yet. When they call in and win that we're talking about two ran Mathieu and in some texts from yells and that. -- ran Mathieu would have been in trouble if he drank -- well and L issue but I don't think -- case technically it is illegal because he's not of legal drinking a habit. I don't think they do any testing for that L issues so I don't think it would have been a test for him to fail in the age you know I don't know this for a fact I'm just. It is my opinion I would guest. Just like any student at -- issue I would presume there's some underage drinking going on on the football team. I'm just presuming that I could be wrong. But while technically it's illegal I would think. That he wouldn't of gotten caught there would have been no testing for that so. Yeah I I think a lot of that goes on so eyes still stand by the premise that I gave you before that if the -- that -- had chosen alcohol. Only as his drug of choice. Presuming he did drink or does drink. Then -- think we'd be having this conversation. Bob and river ridge thanks a colony on dubbed W good morning. They thought -- -- it. I just wanted to make sure I understood wanted to previous politicians to actually say that she'd rather be an accident with somebody. Drunk and smoked pot -- round. Okay well everywhere regardless what what what the logic there. Mom I didn't I don't know I think she was saying that people probably drive slower dude you wind and their children when Iran. But -- -- -- -- that was -- smoking -- and being proposed at this kind of illustrate the whole point as a bit of -- That's that's that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard in my life. Yeah as I say I would prefer a personal view should never drive impaired on anything even if it's night -- And secondly I don't wanna be in an accident with anybody. Well let's -- try to destroy the formation registered. Get those at what about Iran Matthew. Well tell me which is saying does he deserve another shot and an -- chosen. Alcohol as opposed to marijuana we would be having this conversation. Well I've I think the NFL has has made some some pretty apparent exceptions except when it comes because it hit the -- that. You know I think he's gonna get a shot I think you know if he can claim that that follow along with the -- that he started on them -- it. You know one shot you know -- say he's quite talented he would -- somebody can get through that -- new beaver agency model field again. That the deal would tilt toward the people. You know if I can you tell us stories about you know how could better should've been that never blows. That's Jamie OP OP he can get to get a coach Johnny. The -- Colin good morning -- on -- WL.

Alec mid city -- on your on got a W out the morning. -- An island in mid city will put you on hold see if you wander back to the phone will slide ally here on WL. Thank -- I think yeah absolutely -- in the chain. This guy is one of the U defense with players that people aren't round at least two -- Yet he's undersized but so was Doug Flutie those Russell Wilson or some other players I think the game changer. He's electorate. Yeah you'd think they can't let me kid does or it won't pan out he probably needs in the Saturday. A 109. -- it's a special player. And the I just think especially important for the sank that you know -- world. I think they got. I tell you one you know there's this thing they call intangibles. When it comes to athletes and you mentioned some players and I think. -- -- To arraignment he does handmade quality -- -- time again I would if for whatever reason I don't know if it. If it's quickness as opposed speed I don't know if it's attitude and how you measure it. But he has kind of player I think that makes things happen however. Also note that it only takes com. One bad apples spoil the whole bunch girl was the -- sent along time ago so -- -- -- -- rows of a woody column mind influence in the in the locker room -- in -- going on but at all. Can't. Jump. On the Drew Brees would tolerate and I don't think I James Lofton would tolerate a Curtis would tolerate that. Know Indy and like people that he is you know. Maybe he'll continue in the addiction might -- well. But he is currently work which I eat one of those rare players they can turn a game around by and so I'm not -- -- that. -- the NFL level but he certainly Capel making big plate and I totally agree with you about potential. They're just some athletes they were thankful. We're doing big things and not a big thing that makes things when you need that when you really need something big happens to turn that game around. Absolutely right now. Out now underway now as ours -- business side of it as far as the business side of it. What he'd do -- -- given up because it and I'd given up day -- And I given up a high draft pick or anything like that -- signing as a free agent or house may be very. Low hi Adrian not a low draft pick sort of down every a look at it's not anything in 123 -- my dad maybe. You know some at the end of the draft. Absolutely agree with that you know what in the -- in. Not not just because of -- -- but because it's nobody can in my so I mean -- would be probably. Am Dutch nowhere around. So where this person. Have a good -- glad you called -- -- -- and honey -- sell tickets. And the saints don't have problems selling tickets they get a waiting -- -- -- tickets not at Texas my eleven year old was listening on the way to school. And said the as a screen refreshes I don't think the saints should go for Matthews really haven't they had enough drama and distraction for more than a year now. Let somebody else give him a chance some interesting point -- to take a break we come -- get right back to a phone lines -- jammed wanna hear from you. I if if this wasn't pod and it was alcohol that he used chose. We will be having this discussion but as the legality of that factor and Oliver is back in a flash in -- have you.
