Do you continue to do your job while you are on vacation? I know I think about mine as little as possible while I'm gone. And how much can he do if he doesn't know the game plan, practices and meetings aren't being held, etc. All he could do is continue working out on his own and watching film which you don't know he wasn't. The things he listed don't consume a whole week. He's human. Let him have some fun the same as any of the rest of us.
I knew this was coming. Yes, I check my e-mail on vacation and I probably shouldn't, but I'm also not losing at my job.
And I also don't get a whole off-season away from my job to ride go-karts.
Give me a bye week and I'm struggling like this team--- I'll break in to the team facility to watch film and try to get better.
