To have someone from outside some coming now. If it happened at a cool -- -- throwing rocks hosting a few years ago you know there's not brought in David West team devastated -- -- -- what -- is excellent right but normally you you from my from within.

Yeah but doesn't say anything about the idea that having that if they don't have the management skills they don't want the management responsibilities are they embarrassed to. Whereas the united firstly it's Jerry -- news of struggles behind the sun is stepping on -- it would stay with Chapman.

And most of us went public so does this give us some sort of signal that there's a little they are saying apps there -- -- office and I see what -- as one of the crisis that sort of sense -- and it -- distance that your press he said that.
