But then we gave you six months to see how brenner was going to do. But we talked. He's a young player. It was gonna take him to settle. Your team doesn't have a structure. They're not very good period. So i don't even young and i don't think it's on the lucho and brenner signings. I think it's the rest of the team. I think it's the structure around them and so i don't think this is purely in. I mean locadia for example was the shining light and then they didn't even re- up his loan you look at you look hadid zone. Signing is shutting spaghetti.

This kind of behavior does not. Nothing to advance the African American community, and it makes light and those who truly faced terrible evil persecution. And he's got nothing for everybody involved in this scam. Nothing and a look is. Hey, man. Hey, and I'll tell you this too.
