2 reasons:

1. as a leader, you don't throw your own guys under the bus in front of the public - in a game, in the media, you just don't. all you accomplish by publicly bitching a guy out is the creation of a bunch of news stories about conflict on your team. there is no win here.

2. as a professional, you shouldn't have to be asked twice. you want to pout on the bench, fine. another guy who wants to play will be there instead. you don't get a second chance. there is little doubt in my mind that, barring any injuries, juju will not play another minute for the raps this year. he may even get waived.

act like a child get treated like a child. you're done julian. buh bye.
