Can Youth Football Save Us From Gun Violence? 

Can Youth Football Save Us From Gun Violence? 

SB Nation journalist Natalie Weiner joins the show to talk about her recent article on youth football and gun violence.


This week we talk with journalist Natalie Weiner from SB Nation about her recent long-form piece on how gun violence has affected youth football around the country. 

We have Choice Words about the NFL’s circus of a Kaepernick tryout and the NFL’s attempt to bend Kaep to their will. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards for Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid for comments after Kaepernick’s workout, and WWE management for its anti-labor stance. All this and more on this week’s episode!
