i find it hard to get on him over the fact that he has gotten some questionable advise but trusts his agent
It was his decision to hire Lawton... Lawton has advised him to seek the same contract that everyone drafted around him got - which is pretty reasonable.

Any player/agent in his current situation would be crazy to play in Hartford on a Tryout contract. What are the possible benefits for him? None.
