A team scores they would get the ball at the 35 and it would be fourth and fifteen so they would have the option a either go on board or punting. And -- said that. Kick offs of the most dangerous plays in football number one most dangerous blaze that's what they want to eliminate them. But -- here's the deal if you get rid of those something else is gonna become. The most dangerous place and then you eliminate that and then something else that comes number when you eliminate that in the name of safety and before you know it.

Hunter Steve Weatherford with the giants saints opponent this weekend he says of course Sean they know get his message to the team somehow. I'm not saying anything about Sean Payton as a person or anything I think any coach would do that. It's not like he's gonna sit at home and watch the games and not have any thoughts his message will be heard. Of course if Sean -- would do that. If you violate at one year suspension. He would to have the eight big trouble maybe be suspended for another year lord knows -- and the potter has absolutely no evidence of that at all none. It is thought he'd say.
