    Fear that contract may make = not the only reason why players r shy to X ; perhaps it is even low in the reasons column:-
    1. Gives undue information
    2. Partner may imagine the X alerts him to do something unusual
    3. In a competitive auction the x may persuade partner to bid – in this age of non- penalty X
    The above three come ahead of the fear that the contract may make !!
