Gafford shouldn't have done it, but Gafford is basically a kid who is liked and we want to keep around and who made a mistake. Also, what he said was impolite, but true.
Also agreed, except the part about Boylen growing as a person. Not sure if that is definitely true, but as you noted, that part was kinda out of bounds anyway.
So he gets a pass.
Boylen, on the other hand, can **** right off. He's done and said worse to a variety of players and specifically Gafford.
Probably one of the things Boylen has been too honest with is his feedback on players in the media. I enjoy that type of response, but it's a terrible idea to throw players under the bus in public even when they deserve it.
What has he said about Gafford? I'm sure he could have said something. I don't recall him specifically throwing Gafford under the bus at all.
