I think that was the breaking point, there were a few rumors floating around in the months prior to that, that their relationship was starting to get fairly strained. Then I think that happened, and it was just a good excuse to make a big deal over something, and since then, it’s just never been anything but a tolerable relationship, not really a good working relationship. To be clear, if I’m Rudy I’m totally there at this point. He’s been scapegoated and thrown under the bus a few too many times.It's funny that you can point to this entire breakup basically being when Rudy smacked all the microphones and didn't take covid serious... Then gave Mitchell Covid and got the league shutdown.
Granted - it could have been anybody. It was going to happen. But it wasn't, it was Rudy and it was compounded by that presser and touching the mics.
It's been a slow trainwreck ever since imo.
