When Ruff first took over the reigns, we heard about similar issues from Satan.
This read to me more as a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't scenario. If Leino says Lavy's tougher, he might think it would make Ruff look like he's babying them. If he says Ruff's tougher, it could come off as spiteful, lazy, etc.
