I think we all agree with each other on some level - that the piece was clumsily written, but let me paint this scenario (not that this is the case)

If you had a kid who was playing for James who was hired by Fleury who blasted others for not protecting kids...would you be pissed at Fleury? Probably even MORE given what he himself has been through. It's possible that PH was more aghast at that scenario and tbh if I was one of those kids parents', I'd crucify Fleury. It's awful what happened to him, but to potentially allow it to happen to others. I don't know the full story apparently, cuz I don't know how THAT was allowed to happen.
