But -- ask you this and this is your opinion.
If Franken Jamie McCourt did not go through one -- -- divorces in history with the Dodgers be bankrupt right now.
Well I think they certainly would have a better team and their brand has been stellar.
They've got a manager who looks like a great.

And a brand would have been much better as well the Dodgers today.

Of the sponsorship but they did it in concert with ESPN.
