Much like Dan Hampton calling out Jim McMahon back in '86 or so.
Some guys deserve to be called out - even if they are a teammate.
People always cite this as the reason why Frank deserved to be criticized. When has Frank ever acted like an ass? For that matter, when has he ever said anything negative about a teammate? It's always seemed to me that Frank's teammates had a problem with him, rather than the other way around. I don't remember Frank ever instigating anything, and in the event that he did say something, it was usually in response to something a teammate said first.
