Considering our situation, anything better would have been a minor upgrade at best, and most likely not worth the extra time spent. First thing you have to note is Dangerfield was uncontracted, PSD is a threat unless a team below Geelong decides to keep 800k+ free in their cap to pick him up. Of course we could have made moves to make this happen, but you run into issue number 2 as well as generally being the most difficult and likely to backfire path (especially considering i'm not sure when the cutoff date is working out salary cap payments for next season is). The second and main issue player power. Clubs cannot trade a player without consent, and players can veto trades. It's all fine saying someone better, but the odds of that happening are remote and keeping the 1st and 2nd (which were the two main things we wanted, as the 1st was to get into a position to draft Milera and the 2nd was to be on traded for Menzel). Now, two years on, Milera is looking like a long term player and Menzel is in the right idea but unfortunately hasn't worked out basket. Gores part of the deal is steak knives and Gore at the time had shown he could potentially be an AFL player, a true sliding doors moment for him as he was in a good position at Geelong. For us Gore was a low risk prospect from SA that could potentially make it, but we weren't losing out on much if he doesn't, especially seeing his cost was practically pick 55. There is a part of this deal that we read the writing on the wall early instead of ******* around for a week and a half to end up with the same result, as there wasn't any, to very little room to get more (in fact, it's more likely we'd get less as the buyer has the power in this scenario).
