So Which Is It?

Three interesting (and somewhat conflicting) quotes from Tarik in his latest WaPo online chat regarding the lines of communication between head coach Glen Hanlon and his players:

Tarik El-Bashir: Hanlon meets with his players on a one-on-one basis a lot. There's plenty of communication going on there. And the conversations aren't stictly Xs and Os.

Tarik El-Bashir: The mental state of the team is extremely fragile... Eminger and Clymer are wondering why they are being scratched every night.

Tarik El-Bashir: I spoke to Eminger today and he's as confused as everyone else about what's going on.
So which is it? Is the coach a great communicator or not? If not, why state that he is? If so, why insinuate that players don't know where they stand? My guess (and Tarik's too, I'm sure) is that Eminger and Clymer know exactly why they're being scratched. We may not know, but I'm sure that the principles do.
