You want a kicker and you want a fantastic one particular and we have a kicker and we have a fantastic a person, Shanahan mentioned. You have to make all all those decisions economically that have an impact on each and every other one particular, but if you decide to shift on from a good kicker like Robbie, youve acquired to be eager to get worse or commit shut to the exact funds to try to stay the same. So, thats, to me, a quite effortless choice.”
