No... not my point at all. My point was that we don't "really" want Mallet... at least I don't believe we do.
I may have mispoke about the leverage terminology. Yes, New England don't have to take anything less than 2-1 if that is their asking price. We've got nothing to impend them to take less. As of yet, they have nothing to lose.
But we aren't in a position to where we have to have Mallet. That's all I was saying.
