Well of late, most clubs coming after our players were all after a bargain. We were evil after all and a bad workplace.
Still, this is how I’d rate our trades
Melksham for 25 - Win
Ryder for 17 and 37 - Fair
Hibberd and 59 for 29 and 68 - Fair
Crameri for 26 (originally 22) - Fair
Carlisle and Pick 23 and Pick 44 for Pick 5, Pick 24 and Bird - Fair
Really, no one got screwed by trading with us and we didn’t screw anyone over IMV. Adrain obviously likes the negotiation and other club recruiters might not be of the same ilk. Like in life, some love the negotiation and when a deal is struck are happy regardless of the process knowing this is business. Others don’t like negotiating and feel everyone is out to screw them as they aren’t up for the process.
