Although not as a result they're back trusting each other -- -- other winners -- properly. Upload used the term this team to a man seems to be in between is he suggesting -- some hesitation is that what he means by that in between. Two crucial there. The Bausch. And -- can read dial. -- it was not. Happy in the post game and -- wanted very little does he was astronauts exhibit that's about -- adopted him like that -- a great if you -- much and changed the pronunciation was named as good as always that he's now marsh and not much on.

And if Jack could handle it yeah you're good yes we got explode out on items he got -- -- right like every every time I think he -- and Marshal on ones just this one does when it changes his thing we got shot back got connected. What do started out struck us was that are closed said. That that this team to a -- seems to be in between he indicated some hesitation in the play out there is accurate. Yeah I think so. Again they've been -- up each other not sure they'll sometimes structure your client they're not gonna do with it ought to get it back the trust each other.
