yeah, but what mitchell doesn't seem to understand is that some people are more sensitive than others. Kind of like the spanish photo scandal, to many it was a harmless misunderstanding, but some have taken offense.

Same thing here, some players will not like getting cursed, jokingly or not. I know I wouldn't like my boss to curse me when I make a mistake, regardless of whether he's known as a "joker" or not ... Mitchell obviously believes in the "tough love" philosophy of coaching, which works for some, but can fail miserably when dealing with a sensitive person.
