Not a -- as part of a college I think certainly intimidation is a part of the game of football but you know I don't think you ever gone -- with the intent of injuring I mean there's too much respect players have four in coaches have for so.
And we talk about imposing your will we talk about you know create a sense of intimidation on them but we never going through content -- -- they get somebody.
Well evidently were some very poor choice of words and I think the commissioner did a very good job with some very strong message -- -- will not be tolerated.
Right so there's a lot of pressure right now though on commissioner Goodell.
Because -- some people arguing now that he should not actually be in charge of these penalties because the player's contract was signed after the fact when you think.
Well I mean certainly the -- system is it is not the best I would think in the world from the standpoint your children got to send handed down the sentence tomorrow.
But right I think that's what get away from that the system that's get away from what exactly what he's done so I understand the players concerns in regards to the system.
But the messages being sent here is it's not gonna be condoned it's not going to be tolerated and in -- -- -- -- happened crossed a line it's can be dealt with very harshly.
