and if rachunek would rather not play for a coach who will expect him to be the best he can be then i'm not sure i want him on the team
He's a human being - how would you expect him to feel? Martin ran him out of town. I'm not saying he was wrong or it wasn't deserved, but coaches make scapegoats out of players - and Rachunek was Martin's. And while yes, the objective was to make him a better player - some methods work with some players and some do not. MArtin clearly misjudged Rachunek and chose the wrong tactic. I'm not saying there is a personal hatred or dislike - but the two clearly don't work well together.
