18. Looked back at a piece I did on Ron Wilson when he first got the job in Toronto. He said he never talked to players after games because he knew he'd be too tough. Fits with some of his harshest public comments. However, one player did tell me the strangest thing about all of this is Wilson is much more supportive in private. 19. For example, as the team's struggles got worse, there were at least two occasions where the coach put together encouraging videos. One showed all the things they'd done right early in the season, the other was of hard goals they'd scored, to illustrate the types of plays they needed to make.

From Elliotte Friedman's must-read 30 Thoughts. This isn't the first article noting that the players aren't unhappy with Wilson. Seems like Wilson's behaviour is much more of an issue for fans and the media. Or the players are good liars.
