Let me give you one more bit of an illness. And and this is gonna come back to the commissioner as well. Mr. -- state plea deal case. -- is OW I case pretty Hamilton County prosecutor. In Melissa's -- tweet that says. Let's say Moriarty mission already get -- he's already he's been on this forever. And you don't have the excuse anymore of we let the legal process run its course before we make our decision what the legal process has run its course so. What say you commissioner one other tidbit about the Alden Smith nine game and weeks' suspension because there's by weaken their. Am according to published media reports he will be allowed to be at the 49ers facility. During his suspension correct. Josh Gordon can't -- Anywhere near the facility during his fourteen game suspension that interest and because I thought the differentiation was. Performance enhancing drugs you're not allowed to be at the facilities -- Brandon Browner. And and Brian -- can't be near fall under threat will not be at the tape patriots facility I thought that under. The the what is a recreational drugs or whatever the other substance abuse policy you could be at the facility but I wonder if the player conduct policy supersedes that and I don't know the answer is supposedly the -- Smith suspension broke down four games for substance abuse -- games for player conduct. And if you're wondering what that was all about what the violation of the player conduct policy was about we'll tell you that story when we come back.
