TO has been "coached-up" on not burning bridges, is all.
Proves that no matter how many mistakes someone makes in life, there can always be found someone who cares enough to offer advice. In this case, it is probably his agent, who stands to eek-out a few dollars in income. Get on TV, say things that might get twisted or discussed, say nice things about teams that did extend employment offers in the past, and act ready.
Not a bad plan, if there are bills needing paid...
