Jason Larue went out of his way to defend Milton at every turn. He simply wasn't going to trash a guy to the media, it had nothing to do with Sean Casey for crying out loud.
Even if it did, we'd have no way of knowing, because we aren't in the clubhouse.
I know LaRue has defended Milton in the media but you know the LaRue has to be upset when he is off the record. Yet if he would have tried to do anything to make Milton better overall, I guarantee Sean Casey would have defended Milton to the bitter end because that the way the clubhouse was with Sean Casey as it's leader.
