12:44 pm
some believe he would be untouchable. martin. not incognito. >> a few months ago we heard video of bradley cooper screaming the n word at a country concert and i think he is on the field right now. so i think this notion of you know someone has done something and you can't come back from it, it is over blown. there are things in that interview. that would be the answer. we don't know who told incognito to be tougher. we don't know what he said about the other players who have said that he has bullied them. he has been ausecused by other players. >> so many unanswered questions. so i don't know what is going to come of this but i know that the notion that a player can't come
