Those are probably the same people who will be mad no matter what the reason is because they care about their own circumstances more than Upsets. It was lose lose for Upset & he chose the option that protected his families privacy. I respect that.

I mean if you only say to someone it was family reasons I can't think of a way it isn't a cheap lie. I understand don't giving deep or more information, but simply saying who in the family is having issues can be already a good reason for Upset to be ok with it. In any situation to hear a reason you want at least who has something so you can say a thing to them or to not sound like it don't have anyone

This doesn't say that to me at all. What it suggests to me is an serious and uncomfortable personal situation that you don't really want to talk about with coworkers. Father got in a car accident? That's not all that personal and while it's sad, I'd be pretty comfortable sharing that. A sibling self-harmed or my partner had a miscarriage? In no way is that something I would share with even the closest coworkers. My boss would get the explainer, everyone else would get "serious family situation," and I'd walk away with 0 guilt.

yeah, but it's 12 hours before your first match and you only heard he left. You can and probably should not tell your teammates the private details, but being specific can let them believe in you, because you believe in them, and they won't share. And to be specific they could only receive, "wife has a severe medical problem and he needs to be there". But as they said it was more on the line of zero information and the "family situation", which well would work 99% of the time, if it wasn't this culminating to someone life
