I don't know if it's necessarily safety Stuart I think -- the integrity of the game you're gonna have referees that are inexperienced that are on qualified making.
Huge cauldron in games that count and I think that's what -- of additional safety at issue.
Would you make the case that the safety of the plans is an issue of safety could be an issue famous calls in wall circumstance in terms of unnecessary roughness penalties.
After the whistle hits you know certain.

They feel that that's what's gonna bring in a -- the bargaining -- represent -- -- a World Cup replies on the the cowboys yes that's correct.
It's going to be a fun time tonight dynamic to get down there -- -- it doesn't get in this guy.
