He has every right to say it and say it and he also completely right.
He has every right to say either of those things. The first would be way worse than the second to say.
Is it a good idea to say either of those things? No, but again the first would be way worse than the second.
[b]I don't view it as a big deal[b], but it's definitely not a good thing.
I just don’t see the big deal. Everyone already knows the players don’t like Boylen. He’s rumored to be out and is at best a lame duck coach.
If he had said something really bad about him I’d understand the outcry but if you don’t want to be called out on your ****, don’t treat players badly.
I don't see it as a big deal. Hence me literally saying "I don't view it as a big deal" earlier.
I don't think there's a big outcry about it, just that in general, most people think ripping on your colleagues publicly is generally a bad idea. What he said wasn't crazy or anything, if he took out the part about "work on some stuff personally", I don't think anyone would even have thought twice about what he said. If he left it at: "He aight. I ain't going to hate on him." It would have been absolutely clear what he meant without getting onto somewhat thin ice.
That said, I'm also completely aware you're asked something live on a twitch stream and you aren't going through 10 layers of analysis on your word choice and maybe you just say something that wasn't that bad but you might not have said again if you had the time to think it over which is why I also don't see it as a big deal. I hope it is a lesson for him though, you probably don't want to talk shop while on your twitch channel at your point in your career.
