"Scramble. For the sake of affordable workers compensation rates in various states where we're not gonna do to scramble. It says one more injury. You don't want to pay for it. Let's talk town actually real quick you mentioned. I mean, we're not gonna have Aaron Rodgers. We're not gonna have Andrew luck in the XFL immediately. But when you think about five ten years down the line is is the end goal to have a choice for top players between these two leagues. What does success look like for you guys looking long term future? So I think success is really building up this league and making it sustainable, you don't wanna be developmental league. Right. From the National Football League having said that almost any league that's not called the NFL will be considered by a lot of fans sort of developmental could plays well in our league, and he'll have a chance to do except in the NFL opportunity.

I get it while he was brought he wants to play football. Now, my takeaways always back to the innovation. They've got to give me something new. This can't be football. Like we're used to on Sundays. They've got to give me something new while by the way, his stressing the player safety. I just don't know if the public is down for say football. I guess we're about to find out. I think it's interesting that the XFL seems to be going after NFL fans we've seen other of these pop up leagues trying to go in places where the NFL isn't look at the XFL cities New York Dallas Houston L A St Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay all of those are NFL cities. They're clearly trying to capitalize on NFL's popularity little Huey Lewis thing there, Chicago San Francisco to nothing. No. But okay. Okay. A really talented producer would've gone ready to go.
