Is it that much different ? They are big kids...
Yes! The entire point of scratching someone is to send a message so they fix their game. See case and point: Kovalev.
If you keep scratching someone and not telling them why... It's fine. Even he said in the interview, he wasn't as upset earlier this year because it was a numbers game. He knew it wasn't his fault, it was just that he didn't make the Top 12. Now, they're calling guys from the minors to replace him and not telling him why.
He shouldn't be *****ing and RDS is portraying this laughably, but if Carbo truly won't even talk to a player and explain what he needs to improve... That's not coaching.
Dictionary.com "Coaching:" A person who trains or directs athletes or athletic team.
