So he's so intimidating that no one fights him.

So how is he deterring people from attacking his teammates?

I mean, what are they afraid he's going to do if they have the option of just not dropping the gloves against the guy? Isn't, glaring at people and nothing else, exactly what people were mad about with McCarthy?

I have yet to see any evidence at all that suggests that an enforcer, no matter how good, has any deterrent effect on opposing teams in the modern era.
