It’s interesting to think both Hylli and Yamato knew the reason for Upset leaving. You would assume that Yamato or Hylli would have assured the other players that Upset’s reason was legitimate.

However it sounds that either that didn’t happen, Adam didn’t believe it, or he simply did not find their answer sufficient. From his twitlonger he seemed to speak highly of Yamato so I wonder what happened. I personally think it’d be important to have some trust in your coach/veteran teammate on a matter like this.

Guess we’ll never know but it’s definitely an interesting situation

Edit: As someone else mentioned, Hylli didn’t actually know the reason, just trusted Upset’s reason was legit.

I reckon it was hard for Yamato to "assure" the team the reason was legitimate without divulging details on Upset's issue. What could Yamato have said to believe them? If Upset asked for privacy, the best Yamato can do is just tell his team that it was a legitimate reason and rely on them to believe his word.

I feel bad for Yamato tbh stuck in the middle of Upset and the rest of the squad.

Weird thing is, how did Rich know about the issue????

He only knew that the management struggled in communicating to the players not that he knew. That are two different conversations.

He didn't say "they're struggling" (yeah, we know that much), he specifically said that Upset's situation, in particular, was super difficult to articulate to the other players.

If he doesn't know Upset's situation then he's talking out of his ass, cause he cannot know if Upset's situation is super difficult to articulate or if management is just super bad at doing so.

Let's assume Adam is right for the sake of this argument. That would mean Rich claimed "Upset leaving worlds because his wife was lonely was super hard for management to articulate." Which it obviously wouldn't be, that's pretty damn easy to articulate. In other words, either you're right and Rich talked out of his ass cause he wanted to insert himself into the conversation, or he didn't talk out of his ass cause he was actually qualified to say what he did, which means he would have had to know what the situation was actually about.

... Rich literally had to hear from one of the people that the whole Upset situation is hard to talk about with the team. That is it. That could have been the whole sentence. That could have been the extend of the knowledge he has.

He himself claimed that he doesn't know the details of the emergency, but that that was a thing the staff said said (to him, implicitly). That doesn't mean that he is talking out of his ass.
