They're still clearly far away from competing with the big boys. But if they continue to invest in the right areas, they stand a fighting chance.
You're right. I'm sorry if I misunderstood your original point. They have been way better this I expected them to be. My comments were construed to the people that thought that their record reflected who they actually were.
