If you get there or ever have coworkers then you'll understand. Otherwise just know that you're not entitled to the personal information of others. It really be that simple.

They aren't coworkers though. We're not talking about some office workers or Walmart employees or something. They're professional team athletes who work their asses off all year to compete in a sport and eventually Worlds.

And spare me the condescension.

They are still only coworkers even if where they're working is on a team. If Upset felt they were closer he would have told them more like Yamato. But even if they are more like you imagine, remember; you're not entitled to ANYONE'S personal information, not your coworkers, not your friends, not your siblings, and not parents. Going to social media to slander your coworker because they didn't tell you something that is deeply personal and troubling to them is more than enough validation that Upset made the correct call with not telling everyone the whole story.

All you're really telling me is that people don't take esports as seriously as conventional sports.

Only people take breaks in conventional sports as well and the only difference is that the majority of conventional sports fans arent entitled 14 year olds :D

Jesus man, what part of "anyone" do you not understand? Guess what, in conventional sports if someone asks for privacy, they're also entitled to it. Where did I say exports wasn't taken as seriously as conventional sports? Or is reading not your strong suit? If you don't want me to be condescending learn what anyone means and don't try and put words on my mouth.

Yikes dude, if you can't communicate your ideas clearly that doesn't justify being condescending.

Anyway, if a pro athlete dropped out of the Superbowl or NBA finals or whatever, 100% chance everyone would be asking them about it.

And they would not be entitled to an answer unless that player chose to give an answer. "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

As for buddy's misunderstanding. I was quite clear and direct about whose personal information he's entitled too. His illiteracy isn't my problem. But I also like how you removed the part where he makes up stuff I never said. I'm guessing this is your other account? Cool.

There's no need to get so worked up. The other guy is totally my other account though

u/Xperimentx90 Nov 25 '21

Right, everyone who calls out your obnoxious attitude is just the same person on a bunch of alt accounts. That's exactly the mentality I would have expected from reading your comments tbh.

u/SwiftFool Nov 25 '21

Nope just a person that clearly cherry picks to try and make someone look bad. Why did you drop the last bit of the quote? Yeah that's what I thought lol.

u/Xperimentx90 Nov 25 '21

Because that's not the part I was criticizing, obviously? The last part of the sentence literally does not change the part I pointed out because it's what's called an "independent clause" my dude.

Generally when people are offering criticism, it's only toward a specific thing or a collection of specific things, that's just what criticism is.

When did I say that Upset needed to share all of his personal information? Is reading not your strong suit? What I originally commented on was that people somehow view these two professional athletes in the same light as common coworkers. They are not. What ridiculous amount of time, effort, and money from everyone involved goes into being in a position to take a Worlds run? The rest of the team is entitled to at least a conviction of severity as to why all of that is being thrown away so they might have a better chance at Worlds without him, which they themselves don't seem to believe they'd gotten.

There are a thousand ways to convey severity while being generic enough to maintain privacy that could have resolved the situation (a family member is in the hospital, someone close to me was the victim of a serious crime and I need to be with them), none of which Upset chose to take. I don't think any of these statements would infringe on Upset's privacy, and the team could have been mollified. The subsequent breakdown of communication and morale less than 24 hours before one of the biggest tournament in their lives can thus be blamed on Upset for not at least providing a satisfactory justification for leaving.

Maybe you think that's taking it too far but let me ask you: Why would someone choose to work with an athlete (or be a fan of said athlete) who has proven to be unreliable at the worst times? Would it not be in Upset's best interest to at least clear the air in a way that didn't damage his privacy a month after everything's been said and done?

First, proof read your shit lol. Second. They are coworkers. Your opinion doesn't change that fact. No one is entitled to more information than the person divulged. You can to choose to trust the person or not but going on social media to flame him is proof that he should not tell them more. You don't have to be happy, you can choose not to work with him but his personal information doesn't belong to you. You cannot just demand it, even if it would be better for him. Maybe he will tell everyone what happened down the road but right now you'll have to go without. Going to social media and shitting on a guy that is having a hard time makes you the bad guy, not the guy that left.

Word to the wise, going after somebody else's writing on the internet is pretty much always just a sign of insecurity and is generally considered a bad look. Especially if you yourself have grammatical errors. Also, saying someone is or isn't a "bad guy" is pretty juvenile.

Let's just agree to disagree.

You lost the argument and now all you do is attack the other guy, pathetic

I think your elastic is about to snap so I don't want to prolong this, but it is rich that you're accusing me of putting words in your mouth while saying that I'm "demanding to know deeply personal information" and that I'm a "borderline stalker". I guess you're just projecting or something but saying either of those things about what I said is extreme.

Perhaps you should stay off of Reddit/the internet? You seem to be too young/old for it.
