So then you would have a media shitstorm of "sources" making these claims, and fans left in a purgatory not knowing what to believe until he comes out and makes the final clarification ANYWAY. So, the fans would be raked through the coals until he he rips their heart out instead of just letting them have it all at once.

No, it's not. Saying nothing and just signing the contract and leaving NO explanation would be cowardly. Releasing a statement for fans to read on a website or hear a guy read it on ESPN would be called cowardly. Anything he did would illicit reaction, because it's a no-win situation from that perspective.

Why would he? Why would he go in front of crowds and tell them he's leaving and then have them shit in his face? What would the be the point?

Cuz that's MEN do -- at least the ones that have ballz
