Whether it's rational or not, what you're saying (no offense) is that Fleury can do whatever he wants, or rather not react responsibly to something because years later he is an emotional mess? So there is absolutely no onus on Fleury to prevent that hiring situation from happening? Why it happened is understandable (I'm not debating that), but after what Kennedy did (again, it's about how he actually stepped up...also an emotional mess, etc.) it seems unbecoming of someone to allow the same thing to happen to others. Let's not make it personal about each other since no one here knows what the other person has had experience with, I'm just saying that these situations cannot be kept silent or at the very least whether he is a victim or not, he is by definition being hypocritical. By putting the "he was messed up" argument in, it's distracting from the very true fact that at one point he was too confused to not hire the coach who assaulted him and the next second he's blaming others. Right or wrong, it is hypocritical.
