Runs into them and they dropped the ball. Runner may still be out right. Okay it is all the prevent the huge collisions we often see between runners and catchers at the plate but right up until now a catcher in baseball can. Just go stand right there in front plate knowing that he's got the pads on he's got a helmet on and he's got the face mask on and the runners gonna try to knock him out of the way. And a lot of promise pink is the player of the catchers were also moving up from home plate to him blocking more than just not a conflict itself it's absolutely players safeties. Huge concern cursing not just in the NFL anymore. All right so. No block in the played in baseball and fees the and word on the field and football they'll penalize it fifteen yeah the I don't I just don't understand how they're going to be able to enforce that -- -- Mike up every player.

Fellow black players calling each other that on the field. -- use it at all -- -- fifteen yard penalty anybody using a racial slur will be docked fifteen yards. Using it to be offensive or if they're using -- Right I guess if you score a touchdown and you use that in a positive. Manage your team you know it yet you fifteen yards.

And we'll talk about this Texas junior high quarterback who's committing to play at LSU now at the pretty famous uncles. Plus and his -- moment. Talk about that coming up 2.5 minutes -- -- -- well implement its forecast after this there's apparently some fog out there is people attacks. West Bank in the coast as we're seeing the fog this morning. 73 today and mostly cloudy there it's a slight shower chance for up 30% today but that increases tonight up to 50%.

From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist locked -- tell. -- of fog along the coast on the West Bank today no fog of international airport where it's 59 degrees and no fog -- hours 55 degrees. I coming up delays and CBS's David -- and -- WWL first news traffic weather together and we'll talk more about static big moment. Could beat them. Quarterback of the future for LSU. And only fourteen years old. Also -- talk about something and that that's you know sort of logon WW well asking is Miley Cyrus is concert to sexual. I just find it very strange that other performers are just as if not more sexual but nobody cares because they weren't childhood stars. -- that makes a big difference in the way people think. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this the 25 of February 2014. It's a Tuesday and the last Tuesday of February. This time next week Italy march march and it will be. Little Fat Tuesday actually Marty rob a pre law one week. From Thursday it has. SO I've been watching the Mississippi River out my window here and the fog is building on the Mississippi River it's kind of coming up and creeping toward the Crescent City connection getting a little more dance and again text messages. Heavy fog and tidbit though the Ian bell case ball in the rose very dense fog down river. Visibility -- less than a quarter of a mile when you get to the coast. I've throughout the West Bank you down along the coast or right on the river apparently there's fog now and will keep an eye on Etsy where it goes from -- because it can change their marriage did that yesterday. All of a sudden you know -- a year reported it was not a problem adults and eight total model gas so it will watchers again just be advised the good news is an act on going on the causeway at least now it's now one line northbound so far that's looking. Good Miley Cyrus. I don't know he ought to do is say the name that's and I and I serie Ono Bono was your response. -- or applaud in response to some people or complain that her concert is to sexual you know he's going to be coming to be playing here. And I had a mom actually come and ask me but got a fifteen you think it's taken demise. My answers and he probably -- -- if you have to ask. Then you probably shouldn't I mean considering what she'd do it on television. You've got to expect from the concert could be you know I don't know -- how much. How much more do you ramped up often. And he probably will but I'm tie that to be notary on a concert thank you dedicate every concert. You -- beyoncé beyond Stacy would present on the -- yeah. -- is there are a lot of very sexual. Performances out there by a lot of popular artists and concerts. The thing that gets me is people get really angry about Miley Cyrus when she does and the only reason I can figure. Is because she was a star as a young child and a lot of people's kids. Really loved -- man Montana and and so as the little -- girls. And boys they loved Hannah Montana now that Miley is an adult. They still like her in the area they'll preteens or teenagers. Not adults yet. And there there look at matter now -- saying what he's doing well why are you doing this right and habit and parents just just know this most pop performers. He'd just go in and listen to their songs on the Internet outdoors you hear on the radio but on the Internet most of them have. Explicit versions of their songs. Lyrics that are not the ones you hear on the radio that are dirty here that include -- words. And that is Miley Cyrus. So you know you might wanna pay a little more attention to what you think ticket might be hearing if they go to one of these concerts but. Yeah definitely my -- says things in counted that are very sexual very adult oriented. But people just get so angry about it. And it's yet FaceBook today there's much to talk about Robin thick and his wife separating. You know he's been blurred lines guy to Miley was you know is in the foam finger on and all that it received switching over -- -- well that's -- -- him highly suggest dugout I'd be.

Source -- WW well that we say good morning to Steve Geller. Good morning Dave and happy Tuesday everyone. We'll see if the clippers couldn't miss in the smoothie king senator as LA rolled to a 123 to 110 victory over the pelicans. The clips judge shot under 52%. From the floor and drained 163. Pointers -- head coach Monty Williams says. This team's emotions got the best of them in this warrant. We just below their offense to dictate our spirit especially third quarter current sits next thing you know it's a good team maintain the -- Video games -- Well a little bit of news on the free agent front from the saints according to espn.com. Zach -- and the team have had preliminary contract talks to free agent tackle has been in the league eight years and was an asset protecting Drew Brees is right side last season. Quotes a big in state battle on the diamond tonight with seven and no LSU hosts seven and one you will laughing yet. Tigers coach pulmonary says this is undoubtedly their greatest challenge to date. It's got a closer entire starting lineup that we played him twice last year including in the finals of the regional championship there's no question they've got an experienced confident team they've won seven in a row including a three game sweep this southern miss. -- a fourteen year old south Texas boy from a well known quarterback lineage has committed to play football at LSU. Eighth graders sat opting Coleman orally committed to the tigers he's the nephew of -- and Koy Detmer. I'd ever won the 1990 Heisman Trophy of BYU and Koy Detmer was at all big twelve player act Colorado. In college basketball Florida as the new number one in the AP poll with the 2.5 and two gators collecting 47 of 651 place votes. Unbeaten and second -- of Wichita State received 141 place votes and third ranked Arizona got the remaining four. Today for all sports talk the NFL's expected to penalize players. Fifteen yards for using racial slurs on the field. In the league a effectively cracked down on the end word. And it's -- baseball vs -- a lot -- starting at six I'm Steve Geller naturally morning look at sports. Not just in north -- got a few text messages people saying always just the -- -- -- any racial slurs would result in a fifteen yard penalty views on the field during game in the NFL correct right that's just the racial -- that he's used the moves gets the most attention right exactly it's views a slaughter for. White person or wrestler for a Hispanic person are for an Asian person any tips or any. Anything pretty much offensive that you say do another player on the field -- has race. We'll get him involved we'll get to picking our panel. Yeah my question though like I said -- how can they really forces and if you're using it towards another teammate MA. You know because of this many times where they use the N word. As a brotherhood kind of game and they -- have a list made is that yeah the reference can have a list of the banned words. Yeah now and I will wait and see how that plays out I'll -- have to wait and see how this plays that was that -- combing. Does not sound like the name of a great quarterback but. People are raving about this fourteen year old from south Texas who is already committed to LSU they've all over him a scholarship. And again -- -- school yet what that level. Talk about early recruiting for less miles. You I guess they see. Something in him Cam Cameron the offensive coordinator. Has said he's seen exceptional quarterback steals -- -- deceit so exceptional -- that acting Coleman governor likes that off yet not not. Finding that apparently wants -- relative of so that after he's done with eyes -- still wants to thank you we want you come back and fifteen that's what sports. -- Steve Geller I'm Dave on your forecast that I would doesn't fog close to the coast this morning folks and again. The seventies today touting with just a few showers tomorrow -- miserable 80% chance the rain forties most of the day. Well I would did the ten day extended forecast yesterday from migrants trying to remember did it rain uniter remember being dry it Dahlia hall. That a once in -- for awhile and I believe I was in the rain soaked in the rain and -- with my daughter's high school band lasted the whole way. And -- in the city if I don't remember that again Leo for whatever reason okay he military cuts. They don't make the country say four or more hum vulnerable. And what's bigger threat somebody -- of the national debt should you need a valid reason they carry a concealed carry permits to have a concealed carry permit. Because what if that valid reason. Unexpectedly surprises you -- dark street one night you didn't anticipate ahead and who's gonna make a decision if your reason is valid or not. Yet we'll talk about John dingle this guy was in congress for 58 years I think it was -- lot. He's succeeded his father. 58 years ago so -- dangles a panel hold on NC for quite some time with the faculty -- that really sound right when you say. You can then all you want coming up next.
