A lot more going across the middle you bet and i told her raji. I kinda tried a lot of the back to one thing that happened about seventeen eighteen years ago they head injuries the cpa settlement. She settlement the movie. That came out with all that bad publicity about the doctor. All these players having problems with their head injuries some of them starting to commit suicide they change those rules a lotta. I think that's a lot of it. I also think that offense they they recognize it. And maybe there's some of this is due to fantasy football but they recognize how much exciting how exciting offense is for people. They want him more. But i do believe that. There's also a degree of not wanting to be held liable for stuff like like they understand that chris it could wand up they might lose big money. You know like like they settled. There might be like a situation where they say you didn't take any safeguard you didn't make the game safer you know. And then and then you've got a class action suit of all these players saying that. They played in a dangerous game and they didn't do anything to improve it so if they take those steps and even though you know what you're signing up for it kind of protects them and also another element rob.
