It's just.. completely disrespectful to me.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I took the comment about Khudobin reminding him of Thomas as the very highest compliment he could give him and I am pretty sure Jack was talking about his combative style. I didn't even notice anything else I was just thinking how great it would be if Khudobin was even close to Thomas at his peak.

I thought the reason Jack said "the other guy" was because it was a joke because of how great it would be if he was like Thomas. I found nothing to offend me in that exchange. He just understated things as a joke.
