I was really disappointed they couldn't sign Shelley- an above average middleweight who by all accounts is a character guy and a leader in the room. Again, Slats signs the biggest scariest dude available to fill the enforcer role.
I felt like it was a slap in the face to the organization to show up in the shape he was in. Hadn't he even heard about Tort's thing for conditioning? Also, in the few fights he has had this season, he hasn't won one of them. If you are going to be paid to be an enforcer/ deterrent- enforce, deter! Do something- ANYTHING frankenstein!
In an early season that is a feel good story for a team missing it's franchise forward, Boogard has been a non-starter.
