His father also was the reason some teams did not sign Brule. PLUS he was put on antidepressants (kind of hastily) that in some cases make the problem worse.
So I would think emotionally the whole situation is similar to going through a complicated divorce, losing one's ability to do their job, earn money the only way he knows how, and pretty much losing a father without him actually dying. IMO that's more than just an argument.
This is all unsubstantiated hearsay conjecture. Not fact. Please recognize that distinction.
EVen the article is clearly stating there is not an agreed statement of facts, the allegations are "unproven" how could anybody read it any other way?
