I wouldn't call it hate. More of a critique about his conditioning. Last year it took him 1/4 of the year to get into game shape because he was fat. That was a contract year so to speak. No one doubts Doughtys skill, we just think he is lazy. I hope this contract lights a fire under his as$ and he starts conditioning like Clifford does, that would be a scary Doughty for the league.
Where did you hear he was at 206? That's great news and thanks for the info.
