Who cares if the casual fans didn't recognize Shelby? I doubt they recognized Janeway before Caretaker? I would've enjoyed seeing a series centered on Shelby, all while laughing that she made captain before Riker.
Riker was offered Captaincy no less than three times in the first two seasons (one of which was prior to taking the Enterprise assignment). For whatever reason, Riker just wasn't interested anymore in becoming a Captain (despite earlier admissions about wanting to be a Captain by 30).
Any chance this could have happened when he was split? Maybe, akin but less than Kirk, the split was uneven? Tom Riker still seemed gung ho about being a captain, though now his chances sucked (and didn't he join the Maquis anyway? or was that a fanfic?)
