As a coach, I've told a player after a game in which he scored a hat trick that it wasn't his best effort and told him what needed to be improved and how...similarly, I've told a goalie after a shutout what he could do better to make his life easier and his defense's easier...
It's not to be disparaging or a "hard ass" or anything...I give out raves and rants accordingly...it just comes down to, "this happened during a game and it shouldn't..." Or "even though you didn't score...you were by far our best player tonight" It's what you see, not what Billy Beane reads...
