You are likely to have these issues in education camp. I assume you’re heading to have tempers flare, certain. It occurs just about every instruction camp, specially appropriate about now, most likely. But I never like them when they increase like that and try to eat into our reps, and we’re likely to have to come across out why and make absolutely sure that does not take place. We want to retain our eye on the prize, which is preparing for the Browns.”
