Shouldnt be off the table but one of those things that if younuse it too much it just becomes destructive.
As for being too sensitive, imagine what you would do if every single day your manager came and criticised you mercilessly for things that were only partly your fault. Eventually your just going to get pissed of with it and stop trying. Thats normal behaviour and any decent manager, at any level will know this sort of thing.

Without the amount of money they get paid, they should understand that there is a need for them to perform there best, and be passionate like Olympians, and have thick skin.

Criticising anyone who works under you is widely regarded as pretty unprofessional and demoralising, regardless of salary.

Obviously they should, you're a moron if you do though.

I think it's becoming increasingly difficult to hammer players publicly and not expect a blowback in terms of morale, confidence etc dipping in players and maybe, trust being lost. Ferguson rarely criticised his players but he had a dressing room of individuals who would respond in the right manner if he did or the Arsenal team in the 90s who could take that. These days, players are likely to moan to their agent who reports to the press and it snowballs from there.
Mourinho, until his time at Real Madrid, was a manager who was in tune with his players' emotions and they would run through walls for him if they had to but IMO, the spell at Real and the deterioration of trust between him and his players has changed his management style - maybe - irreversibly and he will hammer players now where as before he would deflect onto other issues for a loss.

This is Maureen we are talking about here. The uber narcassistic onanist.
With him it is always someone else at fault and he can't have 'the brand' tainted.
Anyway, back to the questions. No and probably.

Di Canio the other year was a good one. Wes Foderingham exploding into a fit of rage after he got subbed and booting the bottle.
