I don't think anyone is asking AK to get lengthy or emotional. Just the courtesy of a phone call which seems like a standard thing.
What AK did isn't crazy, but it lacks standard professional courtesy.
Just asking how we know this?
Common sense and the general collective experience as to how you treat people in any even remotely similar situation in life?
It's like firing someone over email or breaking up over text or something like that. It's just completely plain common sense that the generally correct thing to do in this situation is make a phone call or meet in person. Doesn't have to be AK, could have been ME, but someone from the Bulls should have called him and done a cursory thank you for your time etc...
Again, isn't the end of the world, but it is a very basic concept of human decency that cross cuts any similar type of situation where you are choosing to end a relationship with someone, the expectation of society is to let that person know in as personal a method as is practical. Face to face would be ideal but not practical in this sense. A phone call is the most practical thing you could do.
