we are united by a common purpose. but we come from different walks of life and different branches of service. you can trace our journeys in the lines on our faces, the curls of our smiles, and the joy in our eyes. and during those journeys, throughout our service and around the world, as we buy cars, finance homes d live our lives, navy federal is there. for over 75 years, they've been there. words alone aren't enough. my job is to listen to the needs and frustrations of the shrimpers and fishermen, hotel or restaurant workers who lost their jobs to the spill. i'm iris cross. bp has taken full responsibility for the clean up in the gulf and that includes keeping you informed. our job is to listen and find ways to help. that means working with communities.
restoring the jobs, tourist beaches, and businesses impacted by the spill. we've paid over $400 million in claims and set up a $20 billion independently-run claims fund to cover lost income until people impacted can get back to work. and our efforts aren't coming at tax-payer expense. i know people are wondering-- now that the well is capped, is bp gonna meet its commitments? i was born in new orleans. my family still lives here. i'm gonna be here until we make this right.
>> i'm a competitor and i hate losing. it doesn't matter if i pass for 4 or 500 yards or i pass for 100 something. it's about winning and that's what the bottom line is. at the end of the season it's about really wins and loss. i mean who's got eight, nine, 10 wins get in the playoffs or who's not able to get in and i think this team is talented enough where we can be able to bounce back after a game like this and get this thing rolling and i look forward to obviously being able to lead that for these guys. >> next sunday it's a 4:15 tilt with the st. louis rams right here on fox. the rams lost to the raiders 16- 14. by the way, jason campbell yanked in that game. have a good night. i'll see you tomorrow.
