BTW, I would have no problem with him saying he was sad to see him go, by all accounts they got along very well. HOWEVER, he will need to move on, and I suspect he'll do just that...
We can only go by what is presented to us, and Ben was the one that went to Tomlin in 2009 to save Arians's job and they both admitted to have a "father/son" relationship. Also, Arians just had an interview, spoken from the horse's mouth that Ben is "not happy" but "it's business."

Ben will need to get over this shit, they had their time together. Looks like Fitchner will be the guy and Ben seems close to him as well (taking him to Hawaii with him.)
